                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
JHELUM.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Say 
good-bye to DOGS OF WAR, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the 
REDLEGS stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for FUR BALL, who flew up 20 points in the 
rankings after mashing JOSEPH like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, 
some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  JOSEPH was subdued by FUR BALL 
and drops 15 points.  Well, if ya don't shows up at the laundromat, ya can'ts wash 
yer clothes.  FOOS BALL did not fight this week so his title was forfeit.  In front 
of all the crowds, DIAPERED ZALGOR took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give 
the bum two weeks.  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 JHELUM arena.  Did you 
hear that WESTSIDE BULLOCKS was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of WESTSIDE BULLOCKS' warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys 
like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause FAUX TIDES beats feet every 
time WESTSIDE BULLOCKS smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well just about everybody 
wants a piece of MORGAN, who was this week's most challenged warrior.  In a mismatch, 
our friend ONE EYED MACK of FAUX TIDES got heroic notions and challenged DUNN.  What 
did it get him?  A 9-3-0 record, that's what.  I don't know about you, but when I saw 
ONE EYED MACK step out on the sands with DUNN, I though it was over before it 
started.  Good upset ONE EYED MACK!   
     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, 
BASTOR was mashed by GRIFFEY, who let BASTOR know that killing members of REDLEGS is 
a no-no.  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.  Silly 
buggers, eh?   
     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.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick 
your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Wow--turn 602 was a wild one for Redlegs, team 602, was there a full moon?  4-1-2
with a bloodfeud kill and 73 pts of recognition was unexpected.  Dunn wasn't out to
kill, he was aiming for the right arm, but at 6'8" and swinging at a 5'1" warrior,
well, c'mon, the head's right there.  Well, bring on the bloodfeud F Balls. -- Deep
Thought

Joseph -- One Eyed Jack?  No.  Less he an orc, then maybe.  I, Mack sired many.  Orc
pride!  Parry is for cowards!  Dodge is like running Parry like fear. -- One Eyed
Mack

The Once Living Crook -- As an excellent strategist 'I' know you're correct.
 However, my young and tenacious manager wishes to constantly explore new options and
"try new cool stuff" as he puts it.  Time cures all things, except puberty, death and
taxes. -- Tao
P.S.  And you're still listed as an adept!  How do you fight a ghost?

     Sounds tricky.

Redlegs -- What the heck was your manager thinking when he named your team?  You're
making fun of my name?  I can't help it Rose was a wussy!  Hey, my best friend died
in the rings, Gladius Rose.  Coincedence?  Maybe the gods disdain men named after
women? -- Bastor the Relentless
P.S.  Bring it on!

Foos Ball -- Congrats!  We are coming for your spot with high hopes. -- Gavin, Faux
Tides

We do not respect our Veteran Mercenaries well if we allow their insurance policies
to lapse.  Perhaps we should take up a contribution for this unfortunate? -- Leonidas

Huh, this one is lapsed, too!  But I don't see where it's OUR fault if he doesn't
keep the payments up. -- Lovarno

The Convicted Assassin seems completely at a loss when gripped by the "Jaws of
Death."  Serves him right.  He's probably Andorian. -- Pete Mastiff

Fur Ball -- Good. -- Joseph

Wally -- The ignominy!  The shame!  Taken out by a short, inexperienced dude... I'll
never live this down. -- Ghost of Crook

Our congratulations to Diapered Zalgor and Hispanically for their tourney victories.
-- Jorja and the Dogs of War
