                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Coming up with a solid 3-2-0 outing, THE 
FREEBOOTERS has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for BROX 
II, who flew up 15 points in the rankings after mashing FOLIAGE like a melon.  Keep 
your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  
FOLIAGE was defeated by BROX II and drops 14 points.  Going for the gusto and coming 
up with aught but bloody knuckles was TACKLE BOX's SPUTTERBUZZ, who was turned away 
from the Duelmastership by CAMDEN.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to 
deliver this stuff?   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid TACKLE BOX, please raise you hand.  
Wow.  Does TRANSEL really have that many liars?  For those of you who like math, try 
this one:  TACKLE BOX + Weapons That go Boom = BALTO + Avoid City.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Yesterday I talked to the PSYCHO SQUAD's 
manager and CAMDEN, slayer of AMY NESIA.  The manager:  'I think I can, I think I 
can'.  CAMDEN:  'I already did'.  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 TRANSEL giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  See ya next time 
I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Sputterbuzz -- Thank you. -- Not-a-Nut Jones

Buri -- Yes, some of us did notice the chancy numbers, but we kept quiet about it
because we didn't want to upset Happy Harriet.  She's, well, she cares about stuff
like that, but she isn't much of a reader, so we're hoping it slipped by.  But who
knows what dark events were set in motion on that fateful turn? -- Not-A-Nut Jones,
but a Prudent Jones none the less

Camden -- We thank you for making Harriet's graduation possible.  It was probably the
rating that tipped her over the edge.  And, ah, speaking of "over the edge," it might
be as well for you to stay out of her sight until she leaves, because she did not
take the loss happily. -- Not-A-Nut Jones

*IF* she leaves. -- Chas Cringer

Oh, dear.  I didn't MEAN to hurt Wegerin Greatblade that much.  I mean... I did mean
to win, if I could, but... all that hair.  It confused me. -- Faintly Frannie

What the heck is this "Master Rholenn" doing "overcoming" me?  He's got a lot of
nerve!  I never said he could do it! -- Chas Cringer
P.S.  And he's a cat.  I hate it that he's a cat.

Maxim -- I overcame you.  Probably Fate.  Probably a snare and a delusion, luring me
into over-confidence before tripping me up.  Excuse me while I go sit in the corner
and worry about it. -- Allen Angst

18 March 11
All -- Be aware of the comeback of the Cajun and his stables of gladiators!  Just
sayin' -- The Cajun
