                                      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.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for COMMON CRIMINAL, who flew up 23 points in the rankings after mashing 
BABY BLUE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the 
top ten was BABY BLUE, who dropped 16 points after a disappointing (to say the least) 
bout with COMMON CRIMINAL.  It's a proud day for the KINGS BLADES stable, as their 
warrior, BIRGITTE, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  Advice to bashers--never force 
anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, RICKY HENDERSON went after BLACK DEATH, 
who was higher by 23 points.  Well, when the dust settled, RICKY HENDERSON was 
overcame by BLACK DEATH.   
     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, there's the manager of the KALTOS giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  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

We salute the tourney participants and especially the tourney victors Scootie Puff Jr
and Y the Bold. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

Well, damn, the turnover on this team has been out of hand lately!  No continuity
worth speaking of. -- Isobel Kline

Hey! -- Oswald Quorn

Ozzie -- You haven't been here long enough to count as "continuity." -- Isobel

Isobel -- A year isn't "long enough"? -- Oswald

Birgitte -- That's the pits, isn't it?  To win the fight and lose the title on
points?  But maybe when I leave, you'll take it as you deserve to do. -- Isobel Kline

Ricky Henderson -- You rolled fine.  Really fine.  I had a ball! -- Oswald Quorn

Common Criminal -- Who let YOU out of the dungeon? -- Orrin Quarrels

Moonglum -- Well, it sure made ME glum. -- Ghost of Tara Voyle

Tug McGraw -- Oh, well... I never was much for playing with balls.  Um, that kind,
anyway. -- Lucia Neron
