                                      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.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for VLADIA THE IMPALER, who flew up 19 points in the rankings after mashing 
CANDYMAN like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  And falling like a basher in the 
top ten was PURPLE ARMOR, who dropped 4 points after a disappointing (to say the 
least) bout with THE BALROG.  Well, if ya don't shows up at the laundromat, ya can'ts 
wash yer clothes.  THE ROOSTER did not fight this week so its title was forfeit.  
It's a proud day for the SERPENTS HOLD stable, as their warrior, LEIA, ascended the 
Duelmaster's throne.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger 
halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid ARE YOU ?, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does SOLVEN really have that many 
liars?  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause SERPENTS 
HOLD beats feet every time ARE YOU ? smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well just 
about everybody wants a piece of PURPLE ARMOR, who was this week's most challenged 
warrior.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  In the 'Oops, What Have I Done?' category, 
FIRE was mashed by LEIA, who let FIRE know that killing members of SERPENTS HOLD is a 
no-no.  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.  Silly 
buggers, eh?   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in SOLVEN have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The
