                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
ALJAFIR.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  A 
stormcloud is brewing over the THE OFFENDERS guildhouse.  Rumor says any more weeks 
like this ones 1-3-0 may send the team to the Dark Arena.  Hey everybody, watch out 
for PIRATE, who flew up 21 points in the rankings after mashing BRASS BED like a 
melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on 
the sands.  DIRTY CLOTHES was beat by LOOKS and drops 10 points.  Unlike most arenas, 
THIS IS A TEST managed to get its challenge off against the 0-0-0 MOUNTAIN TROLL.  
Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was DARK ARENA's 
MOUNTAIN TROLL, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by THIS IS A TEST.  An 
apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the ALJAFIR arena.  Did you 
hear that THE SHOWOFFS was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of THE SHOWOFFS' warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo me?  
Well, unsling your rasberries, cause NERDS RULE! beats feet every time THE SHOWOFFS 
smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  And who is this ALWAYS you ask, with 85 points and 
a 11-18-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  Can any one out there say 'weasel'?  
Oh well, just saying YOU CAN'T BEAT ME will do.  He challenged 17 points down to 
trash ALWAYS.  Definition of petty:  YOU CAN'T BEAT ME beat ALWAYS, a mismatch of 17 
points.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  THIS IS A TEST defied all odds 
and slew MOUNTAIN TROLL in the Dark Arena.  The only ones displeased were the 
buzzards, as MOUNTAIN TROLL's meat is notoriously tough.  Well, the arena is no place 
for slow learners (and hopefully T.P.s) and I'M TOO GOOD demonstrated that very 
violently on BLADESTONE's body.  Knowing when to use the right tactics at the proper 
time is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     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.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud 
choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster
