                                      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.  Say good-bye 
to CRITICALS, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the APOKOLIPS 
stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for BARRELS, who flew up 18 points in the rankings 
after mashing JINA TYL RAY like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling 
like a basher in the top ten was RUMBLER, who dropped 10 points after a disappointing 
(to say the least) bout with KARASENDRIETH.  It's a proud day for the SWORD FOR HIRE 
stable, as their warrior, K.O., ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  An apple a day 
keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that CRITICALS was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of CRITICALS' warriors, 
I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, 
cause SWORD FOR HIRE beats feet every time CRITICALS smiles at them.  Try farming, 
eh?  And who is this RUMBLER you ask, with 69 points and a 9-7-0 record.  Ooh, the 
tales I could tell!   
     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:  SAYK II:  
THE REMATCH.  Yesterday I talked to the SAND DANCERS' manager and KARASENDRIETH, 
slayer of STONE CUTTER.  The manager:  'I think I can, I think I can'.  
KARASENDRIETH:  'I already did'.  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take 
your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in JADE MOUNTAIN have 
no sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make 
some tracks.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud 
boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Mighty Assault -- For a moment, albeit brief, I thought I had you.  I surely didn't 
expect you to win back the initiative. Good show. -- K.O. 

Encantadora -- In a quick in-game decision, I decided I don't like the feeling of long 
spears against my cranium, and had to do something about it. -- Jina tyl Ray

Han Kang -- I decided I really don't like fighting warriors with six-times my 
experience. Take the pearl from my hand; it is time for you to leave. -- Quiet Loner

Ziggy Stardust -- I suck. -- Black Ice 

Jade Warrior -- The ol' wait till they drop and bash 'em over the head trick, eh? -- 
Blunt "the freshly risen" Trauma 

Congrats to Han Kang -- Angus McSweords 

Quiet Loner -- Think of it this way:  you won't ever have to face me again, because 
I'm retiring. -- Han Kang

Lady Smoke -- No no NO!  No smoking.  It just RUINS your wind. -- Rumbler

Karasendrieth -- Gah.  With a record like that, you should be one of us. -- Chi Ho
P.S.  But maybe not with that style.

Barrels -- Too much for me.  I prefer pint bottles. -- Meadowlark

Freddie Mercury -- About what I'd expect from a rock. -- Lady Chao

Jina tyl Ray -- You're welcome.  Come around the guildhouse for private tutoring. -- 
Rumbler
