                                      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 2-0-0 outing, CHURCH LADIES has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  
WORDS THAT END IN O is no joke as it posted a 3-1-0 week advancing from 2nd place to 
1st place.  Hey everybody, watch out for MOSES, who flew up 26 points in the rankings 
after mashing JULIUS BONSURIUS like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling 
like a basher in the top ten was SILICONE, who dropped 13 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with SOLO.  Drawing on all of hers experience 
as a 13-7-2 warrior, YANKEE ROSE went for the Duelmastership against BARRIO this 
week.  Our battling duelmaster BARRIO has managed to hold the title, fending off 
YANKEE ROSE's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, SENTINELS.  4 out of 
5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad WASTELAND II?  Big bad WASTELAND II.  Big bad WASTELAND II.  BONSUR's afraid 
of the big bad WASTELAND II.  Tra la la la la!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, 
unsling your rasberries, cause SENTINELS beats feet every time WASTELAND II smiles at 
them.  Try farming, eh?  Well just about everybody wants a piece of GALVESTON GAL, 
who was this week's most challenged warrior.  In a touching display by a 'touched' 
warrior, LORRIE went after BALOR, who was higher by 22 points.  Well, when the dust 
settled, LORRIE defeated BALOR.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  In the 'Oops, What Have I Done?' category, BRAGGADOCIO was 
mashed by BIG BAD DADDY, who let BRAGGADOCIO know that killing members of WESTNMAFIA 
is a no-no.  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.  Silly 
buggers, eh?   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in BONSUR have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!--

Congrats to Lord Protector Salton Seahorse!  What a long, strange trip it's been, but
the prize is now yours.  Hopefully there will be a celebration at the cabana! --
Sentinels

Salty -- I've waited for awhile, but as you are about to depart our fair city it
seems my last chance to match-up with the reigning queen of FE is to challenge you
this turn.  So here it comes, hopefully I can make your last fight here in Bonsur a
memorable one! -- Ozy

Sandy -- Well, I'll let you and Ozy talk about works, despair and cooking over tacos
at the cabana.  Maybe soon you'll be able to talk about a fight against someone else.
-- Yankee Rose

A guard?  Ambitious even.  Well, at least he helped me get back to even.  How'd I end
up in the adepts? -- Erasmus

Dorothy -- This is getting ugly.  Erasmus has turned things around, I need to do it
quickly or it might get even uglier!  You were of no help with this what-so-ever! --
Julius (an embarrassment to the city) Bonsurius

Wow.  20 fights last turn and nine of them by lungers.  Variety, it is the spice of
life.

     And lungers, they are the harbinger of total parries.

Barrio -- You're a bad neighborhood, boy, which probably explains why you've been
neutered.  Try not to make a mess up there on the hot seat, okay?  Because one of us
will probably be coming back to it any time now. -- Beach Betty

Braggadocio -- Big talk, little walk. -- Pensacolita

Yankee Rose -- A walk-away for you, but at least you do it with style. -- Sandy Shore
P.S.  You going to come by the cabana tonight?  Galveston has a new drink mix she
wants to try out.  Something about using the juice of the vins unfermented.  Sounds
weird, but we'll throw in some barbeque.

The Khalhums Dwarf?  An important landmark in my career, and I get the Khalhums
Dwarf?  Heck. -- Salton Seahorse

Balor -- Well, you're a tough nut, aren't you?  I hope you've got tourney experience,
because otherwise, I'm going to be seriously embarrassed, and I try not to be serious
about anything. -- Galveston Gal

Epee?  They're nuts. -- Salton Seahorse

Rose -- No, I think it's the throne that's cursed.  Maybe we should exorcise it. --
Betty

Ozy -- Any time.  What else are friends for? -- Sandy

     HDFA Mission Statement
     "Show me the money!"
     This is the battle cry of a newly formed collection of like-minded individuals:
The High Dolla' Free Agent$.  We are not a tough guy alliance:  No...we offer no
battle without reward.  We search for victory and the prizes and accolades that
follow.  We are motivated by winning and will freely use whatever means necessary to
obtain our currency.  No stuffy rules, no mandates, no constitutions, no leaders,
only a few objectives:
     1) Win as often as possible
     2) Celebrate freely and revel in your victories; the more meaningless the
victory the more we celebrate.  Highsiding and chest thumping are encouraged.
Ostentatious endzone celebrations with prop usage are encouraged, regardless of
fines, penalties, suspensions or arrest by local authorities.  It is important to let
your opponent know how great you are; more importantly, you must let your own
alliance mates know how great you are.
     This is a 1-up alliance, let the performance of your fellow Free Agent$ motivate
you.  If a Free Agent wins a TV, win 2; if a Free agent wins a contest, win a more
prestigious one.
     Current members of the HDFA include:  CFH and Abraxis.  Inquires can be directed
