                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  We now have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  WORDS 
THAT END IN O now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  Coming up 
with a solid 5-0-1 outing, WORDS THAT END IN O has advanced 3 places in the rankings. 
Hey everybody, watch out for SOLO, who flew up 16 points in the rankings after 
mashing EMBEZZLING SCRIBE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this beast.  Ya know, some 
days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  SALTON SEAHORSE lost to DANCING 
COWBOYS and drops 6 points.  Our battling duelmaster TOTAL DISASTER 1.0 has managed 
to hold the title, fending off LAGUNA LIL's none too subtle advances.  Better luck 
next time, BEACH BABES.  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!  
Did you hear that WASTELAND II was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of WASTELAND II's warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you who 
like math, try this one:  WASTELAND II + Weapons That go Boom = HATE + Avoid City.  
Well just about everybody wants a piece of SALTON SEAHORSE, who was this week's most 
challenged warrior.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Carrion Bird Cinematic Humor:  MASTER ROSHI 
II:  THE REMATCH.  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.  
Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the BONSUR 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.  Its been fun, and 
I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you worked up for Snide Clemens, 
I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster

Dancing Cowboys -- Didn't anybody warn you that there isn't a "talent show" to this
game? -- Laguna Lil
P.S.  And no "swimsuit parade," either.

Total Disaster 1.0 -- It would have been once, perhaps, but now...nothing is a
disaster for me. -- Umbrella Man
P.S.  Well, being sent to the Isle to actually FIGHT there might be disastrous....

I didn't actually LAUGH at the Veteran Mercenary, you know.  I respect his
veteranity, veteranness?  Whatever.  But as a gladiator, he IS ridiculous. -- Salton
Seahorse

Honestly!  That Ambitious Guard--you have to wonder about his alleged brains, you
know?  I mean, he's been doing this for more than twenty years, he hasn't gotten any
better at it, and he keeps ON. -- Beach Betty

     It's a pay cheque? -- Ed.

Vegas, Baby! -- I figured, oh, he, I mean it only has one arm, how much danger can it
be?  Wow. -- Sandy Shore

To those involved, no, I have not abandoned your stories.  But I've been letting them
drift, and that has to stop, so I am taking the time to make sure that I know where
they are going, more than just "what happens next" dreamed up on the fly, before
resuming work on them.  No new stories will be started until at least one of the old
ones has concluded, for the same reason:  quantity can't substitute for quality.
Your patience in this matter is appreciated. -- the Scribe
