                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  We now have a 
new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  UPSTARTS now holds the crown and 
they are betting they can keep it.  A stormcloud is brewing over the RUN DMC 
guildhouse.  Rumor says any more weeks like this ones 1-3-0 may send the team to the 
Dark Arena.  Coming up with a solid 2-2-0 outing, BOOZE has advanced 3 places in the 
rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for STEVE NASH, who flew up 30 points in the 
rankings after mashing CATTY WENCH like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Our 
battling duelmaster FRAN TIC has managed to hold the title, fending off MASKED 
MURDERER II's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, HOMICIDAL MANIACS.  
Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the MORDANT arena.  And hey, 
kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid UPSTARTS, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does 
MORDANT really have that many liars?  For those of you who like math, try this one:  
UPSTARTS + Weapons That go Boom = BOOZE + Avoid City.  Well dang howdy, but if 
challenges were votes, FIANNA QUINN would be president.  Although it may be a contest 
she doesn't want to win.  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, THE SAUCE 
went after HANDY DANDY, who was higher by 22 points.  Well, when the dust settled, 
THE SAUCE subdued HANDY DANDY.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Carrion Bird Cinematic Humor:  CATTY WENCH 
II:  THE REMATCH.  For those of you who missed it, Death showed up, grabbed MASKED 
MURDERER II by the ear and took him away to a place where he won't need a coat.  I 
have no doubt that HOMICIDAL MANIACS will be celebrating long and loud their warrior 
SCHOOLBUS DRIVER's slaying of GEORGIA PEACH on the sands.  Ask not the elves for 
counsel, for they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Okay, so I may not be the world's best comedian, 
but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been real, and its been fun, 
but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Three-two, continues improvement, this is good. -- -- Schoolbus Driver
P.S.  And the Low Roaders went two-oh, which is seriously provoking of them.
