                                      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.  We now have a 
new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  TRIBAL COUNCIL now holds the crown 
and they are betting they can keep it.  It looks like the guys(?) at DOGS OF WAR had 
a good week as they went 5-0-0 to put them in 3rd place.  I guess steroids help!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for WISE OWL, who flew up 15 points in the rankings after 
mashing VAR-KHAN like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher 
in the top ten was VAR-KHAN, who dropped 9 points after a disappointing (to say the 
least) bout with WISE OWL.  PONTIAC got through to the Duelmaster this turn.  No 
doubt he was more than anxious to kick RAIGHNALL's tail out of the throne!  In front 
of all the crowds, PONTIAC took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum 
two weeks.  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!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Here's some advice:  warriors with little 
wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in JHELUM 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

Valley of Fear -- That scimitar blow to the neck was scary. -- Lucky Raighnall

Diving Hawk -- My manager was drinking when he filled out my strat.  I ended up with
the wrong weapon... -- Skullhammer

     And you didn't even get to enjoy the hangover.

Snapping Turtle -- I did not seek to slay you.  My KD was only 6.   FYI. --
Kai-Ghan

Our congratulations to Snapping Turtle. -- Jorja and the Dogs of War

Var-Khan -- Oh, well, you're an orc, so of course you are a vicious savage. -- Blind
Betsy

Peter Rabbit -- Well, THAT is totally embarrassing.  Subdued by a rabbit... the
shame! -- Fenris Khan

Bar Bunny -- Well named.  I could smell the alcohol all the way across the arena.
Ah... what were you drinking, exactly?  I might try it. -- Warburton

Brave 3 -- I don't find anything "unbelievable" about my win.  It was a FINE win, and
FULL DESERVED. -- Bunker Bill
P.S.  And if you have a graveyard handy, I'll whistle past it.

Aha!  A Beggar!  That was an easy one, and I'm sure it is a simple foretaste of many
victories to come. -- Jaeger
