                                      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!.  Hey everybody, watch out for BLIND BLAKE, who 
flew up 18 points in the rankings after mashing ALICE AIN'T HERE like a melon.  Keep 
your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  
SON OF JOHN lost to BIG BILL BROONZY and drops 9 points.  The most challenged warrior 
this week was TOM TIGER.  If this keeps up, our Duelmaster's going to need more 
avoids!  Drawing on all of his experience as a 6-4-1 warrior, DOVAHKIIN went for the 
Duelmastership against TOM TIGER this week.  It's a proud day for the SKYRIM stable, 
as their warrior, DOVAHKIIN, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  Can you believe they 
are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the TRANSEL arena.  And hey, 
kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid BLACK AND BLUES, please raise you hand.  Wow.  
Does TRANSEL really have that many liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch 
LIKE IT!'s act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from 
BLACK AND BLUES.  MONEY of LIKE IT! had better have a good reason for challenging 
down 9 points in a challenge which it won.  I thought MONEY showed great skill and 
promise when it defeated FLUFFY BOY.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may 
encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  Hasta la 
bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

What is this?  Blind Blake, a mere MUSICIAN, has taken MY SPOT as favorite?  This is
just WRONG. -- Son of John
P.S.  And *I* should have been dulemaster, not that PUSSYCAT, Tom Tiger.  There are
dark forces at work here, and I want them STOPPED.

Not a stellar turn for the Psycho Squad team, but we aren't about teamwork.  That's
for lesser souls.  And their bodies, of course.  What counts is that *I* am the
duelmaster.  And that's ALL that counts. -- Tom Tiger

That is NOT all that counts!  Money, filthy, inedible bits of metal, defeated ME!
This is not to be borne.  I shall TAKE STEPS. -- Dark Fluffy
