                                      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.  Advancing in 
the rankings was BEACH BABES who went from last turn's 832-1163-24, to this week's 
record of 836-1164-24.  Hey everybody, watch out for THE SHADOW DANCER, who flew up 
18 points in the rankings after mashing KONA KATE like a melon.  Keep your eye on 
this gal.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  KONA KATE was 
subdued by THE SHADOW DANCER and drops 18 points.  Going for the gusto and coming up 
with aught but bloody knuckles was BUNION SQUAD's RAMROD, who was turned away from 
the Duelmastership by SONYA.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a 
day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad BUNION SQUAD?  Big bad BUNION SQUAD.  Big bad BUNION SQUAD.  BONSUR's afraid 
of the big bad BUNION SQUAD.  Tra la la la la!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but 
catch SENTINELS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running 
from BUNION SQUAD.  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, QUEENIE would be 
president.  Although it may be a contest she doesn't want to win.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes 
and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     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.  Its been 
real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

It is with bittersweet pride that Doom Dwarf and Harpoon journey to the Isle; one, to
attempt to ascend the ranks as a rare Basher of Merit, the other, as pool boy and
courier for Lady Shiela.  Wish them well, for both will need luck of a differing
sort.  Stay deadly, my friends. -- Obregon

(Harpoon, one of my old-time originals from circa 1988, started out 13-11-5-13-13-20-
9, and trained to 13-11-5-15-13-21-10, with Advanced Experts in Decisiveness,
Riposte, and Defense, and an Expert in Initiative.  He was bonused in Defense (+4)
and Riposte (+3), but his poor starting Attack rating and "normal" damage dealing
caught up with him in mid-career ... -- Obregon)

Sonya -- I go to the cabana lookin' fer Katie and find you waitin'.  Sho much for
goin' undefeated as Duelmaster... *hic* -- Doom Dwarf, half embarrassed, half--
celebratory for his ascension

Nomad -- The loss of a worthy such as Blago is difficult.  But fighting is a
dangerous business, as I am sure Ramrod is about to find out.  Stay deadly, my
friend. -- Obregon

Dancer -- I'm gettin' my Andy Gibb on, "shadow dancin, yeah..." -- Harpoon, reveling
in victory and graduation

Ursa Major -- With a recognition drop like that, they should call you the Big Dipper.
*rimshot* -- Princess

Sorry no personals this time.  We are SOOO sick, it's just a good thing the
newsletters don't transmit virus. -- Jorja and the Beach Babes
