                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  A stormcloud is brewing over the WHAMMO & THUDDA 4U! guildhouse.  
Rumor says any more weeks like this ones 0-0-0 may send the team to the Dark Arena.  
SHADOWHOLD is no joke as it posted a 3-0-1 week advancing from 5th place to 6th 
place.  Hey everybody, watch out for URAKO WITSTEALER, who flew up 22 points in the 
rankings after mashing QUEEN OF THE NORTH like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  
Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  QUEEN OF THE NORTH was 
subdued by URAKO WITSTEALER and drops 16 points.  Going for the gusto and coming up 
with aught but bloody knuckles was AVENGERS' ODACHI, who was turned away from the 
Duelmastership by KANEN VILESTAR.  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 THE STORM REAVERS, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does CHIMLEVTAL really have 
that many liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch AFTER MIDNIGHT's act in the 
arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from THE STORM REAVERS.  
Well just about everybody wants a piece of QUEEN OF THE NORTH, who was this week's 
most challenged warrior.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  We might as well mark the passing of GUL'DAN, who was 
relatively new to the arena at 6-1-0.  Probably killed before his first shave.  
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.  Its been real, and its been fun, 
but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Finally! Finally, Belinda, we agree on something. I must admit that I, too, have 
always thought you were slightly sick. -- Lady Smith

     Ouch.

First Date, I am pleased that you wanted me so badly, but couldn't you have treated me 
a little better? -- Lasso

I do. Well, sorta. -- Umbrella (opening up)

DaveMielke, consider yourself bullued. Har, har, har. -- Acid

Cops!? Really! I didn't want anything to do with you. But thanks for letting me off. I 
fooled you with the suit and tie, eh? -- Necktie

A 2-2 isn't so good, Smithy. We need to do better. So you need to take the Useful 
Weapons and "fire" them up! -- Lady Smith

To all you downchallengers out there, I just want you to know that it is despicable 
when YOU do it. -- Lady Smith

Lasso -- I'm not too keen on second dates...  Thanks for the cheap win. -- First Date

Belinda -- There are three types of people in this world.  Those who can count and 
those who can't. -- First Date
