Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and I'm going to give you a spy report!. Advancing in the rankings was DOLI CAPAX who went from last turn's 35-23-8, to this week's record of 38-24-8. Hey everybody, watch out for KRAFT PAPER, who flew up 20 points in the rankings after mashing VAMP STAMP like a melon. Keep your eye on this gal. And falling like a basher in the top ten was VAMP STAMP, who dropped 16 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with KRAFT PAPER. It's a proud day for the GRAVEYARD SMASH stable, as their warrior, DRACULA, ascended the Duelmaster's throne. 4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location. But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle! Here's a song for you: Who's afraid of the big, bad GRAVEYARD SMASH? Big bad GRAVEYARD SMASH. Big bad GRAVEYARD SMASH. VEASTIAN's afraid of the big bad GRAVEYARD SMASH. Tra la la la la! And you guys like to boo me? Well, unsling your rasberries, cause DOLI CAPAX beats feet every time GRAVEYARD SMASH smiles at them. Try farming, eh? Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, CRYPT KEEPER would be president. Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win. Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day drinking to their memory. Better tanked than dead! Here's some advice: warriors with little wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle. I think I had better cut this one short. It's been nice chatting to those of you whom I have not offended yet. Well, there goes another Spy Report. Good luck in next week's fights. Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos). Now that I've got you worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster DUELMASTER W L K POINTS TEAM NAME DRACULA 5172 10 2 1 108 GRAVEYARD SMASH (513) CHALLENGER CHAMPIONS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME -THE MONSTER MASH 5073 8 0 0 101 GRAVEYARD SMASH (513) MACE GREFF 5090 13 8 3 98 DOLI CAPAX (514) CHAMPIONS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME BACKBEREND 5087 15 5 3 82 DOLI CAPAX (514) CRYPT KEEPER 5175 8 4 1 75 GRAVEYARD SMASH (513) CHALLENGER ADEPTS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME KRAFT PAPER 5174 4 1 0 63 DOLI CAPAX (514) ADEPTS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME MUMMY'S THE WORD 5076 11 6 1 49 GRAVEYARD SMASH (513) VAMP STAMP 5074 6 3 1 41 GRAVEYARD SMASH (513) INITIATES W L K POINTS TEAM NAME LACERTA 5147 3 2 1 13 DOLI CAPAX (514) '-' denotes a warrior who did not fight this turn.

We were just informed by our bank that the fee to process these checks is $40, which is crazy high! Many apologies to our foreign players, but you will need to either get a check from a US bank (Chase, Citigroup, etc.) or pay via credit card. Armsilbar liked being Master of the Stronghold Academy, all except for one part. He had to talk to Sheila Greywand at least once a week, usually oftener. She was getting more erratic. More chaotic. That would be the effect of the Grey Wand. It was a powerful chaotic artifact, and she kept it with her always. She had turned his predecessor into a frog--or 164 frogs--and then summoned all the members of the Academy to a frog-leg dinner. That had been, ah, bad. Yes, very bad. But here he was entering her chambers. With, well, it couldn't be called GOOD news. And the look she turned on him--she was in an orcish mood today, all scowling black brows and bared fangs--that made him nervous. But some things had to be done. He cleared his throat, which seemed to have a frog in it, and said, "It's about the next tourney prize, Lady. I know it's more than two months away, but this isn't too soon to start thinking of some new, exciting prize--" "I have no intention of thinking about 'new, exciting prizes'," she snapped. Or was that a snarl? "These managers are getting above themselves. They act like I created the arena system for their amusement! There will be one standard prize for all the tourneys. Just one." He had a horrible vision of all the managers walking out in a mass. Perhaps it wouldn't be that bad, but it wouldn't be good. And if he said the wrong thing, well, the next frog-leg dinner might be him. "Er, ah, perhaps a specific prize for each tourney--a spring prize, a summer prize, and so on? The managers expect--" She exploded. A literal explosion, the force of the blast blew his hair off. She said several things in an obsolete dialect of orcish. He stepped backward, then again. The blast had blown the door open behind him. If he could make it out before something else happened-- "Ribbit! Ribbit!"
