                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Coming up with a solid 4-1-0 outing, CHAMPIONS OF STEEL has advanced 
3 places in the rankings.  It looks like the guys(?) at X-FORCE had a good week as 
they went 3-1-0 to put them in 3rd place.  I guess steroids help!  ORCISH IDIOMS 
seems to have it's eye on the top team spot, and if they continue having 4-0-0 weeks 
they may get it!  Hey everybody, watch out for ZABABA, who flew up 21 points in the 
rankings after mashing YMIR BLOODRAVEN like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya 
know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  YMIR BLOODRAVEN was subdued 
by ZABABA and drops 14 points.  Drawing on all of its experience as a 9-4-1 warrior, 
NYTEMAIR went for the Duelmastership against JAGUARMAN this week.  It's a proud day 
for the CHAMPIONS OF STEEL stable, as their warrior, NYTEMAIR, ascended the 
Duelmaster's throne.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this 
stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that YAKUZA was most avoided 
team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of YAKUZA's warriors, I'm not 
surprised!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause 
NORTHERN BADLANDS beats feet every time YAKUZA smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  
Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, GEROGE JIM would be president.  
Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and 
take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick 
your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Chaos -- I'm not sure I would have liked to meet you again...good luck in Andorak! --
Aujard

Gravedigger -- You're welcome, but I sure wouldn't like to see your scimitar in my
pretty face. -- Alain

With me, you're not welcome.  I truly enjoyed our fight, but I was a little lucky, I
guess, so I think it's enough....  Perhaps after the next tournament. -- Biberon

You didn't try all the team yet! -- Le Pentarque
P.S.  I don't know Yannick or Jessis, but I'll keep an ear open to these names.

Jernig -- You earned the right to know the meaning of my name!  It's quite mundane.
When I was created, my manager had spent a night in the Wyndham Baltimore Hotel...
and the CSR typists got a little confused with his bad handwriting!  See you on the
sand. -- W. Baltimore

Thundar -- Perhaps you paid for Sasha.... -- Aujard

Hey Sasha, you sure surprised me.  I want to try again!  Congrats on your win. --
Alain

Blackstorm -- First , let me correct you.  I'm not a Sir, but a Madam.  Jan is short
for Janet.  :)  I've been playing this game since 2001.  I currently run teams in 8,
28, 31, 47, 54, and I've also run in the past in 2,6, 21, and 45 as well as others.
I'm part of the Vendetta Cartel alliance (VC for short).  The able manager known as
Maximillian (Northern Badlands) is the other VC manager in this arena though we have
several other members in other arenas.  Now, I'm assuming you must be fairly new to
this game, as most managers either know that HAL is the all-knowing computer that
rules RSI, or they know that I'm a woman.  When players send personal ads via e-mail
they usually get a message from HAL stating that the message was received.  Sometimes
he acts up and the message is not received, etc.  Congrats for graduating Chaos
Warrior.  Seems we have several new teams starting here, which is always good. --
Sensei Jan

All -- Kami was not one of my better wastes, but still a winning workhorse.  10(1)-
13-11-13(1)-17(1)-7-17(1)  Master Parry, Adv. Ex Init. and Attack.  Favs:  Great Axe,
High Off/Very Low Act.  Riposte Tactic.  Learns Parry. -- Sensei Jan

All -- Sensei Jan the P-Ripper was only my second ever ripper.  If I had known more
at the beginning she would have done wonders.  7-13-9-17-17-4-17  Masters in Riposte,
Parry, and Attack.  Favs:  Longsword, Moderate Off./Moderate Act.  Learns Attack. --
Jan

Maximillian -- Thanks for the compliments.  Just make sure you run in this arena
also!  The VC need the Throne and I have no one close yet. -- Jan

The, Team Lunge, Leviathan, Soultakers, The Storms Fist -- Welcome to Arkers.  We
hope you stay awhile, but understand if you can't take the pressure.  There are some
tough teams and managers here. ;) -- Sensei Jan and Yakuza

La Pentarchie -- Noooooo...I've finally lost the Top Team spot. -- Sensei Jan

Jaguarman -- Good fight!  You definitely earned that win. -- Kami

Feordis Ink -- No way.  I didn't realize your fine manager ran "those" kind of
fighters. -- Inochi

Sal're Nimble -- I thought you did not want to do it again? -- Sunfire

George Jim -- No need to apologize.  I'm sure if I get the chance I'll do the same.
-- Dazzler

Biberon D'Acier -- Hmm, a drunken oak tree?  How odd.  But you do the "reeling in
place" stuff very well. -- Jernig Mars
P.S.  But I would have expected an oak tree to be taller.

Les Paul -- Huh, I SEE.  Another member of the Anti-Orc Society, are you?  (glower)
You'll get yours one of these days. -- Geroge Jim

Inochi -- Think of me as a philanthropist, er, philogynist, not wanting to ruin your
undefeated record. -- Feordis Ink

S. G. -- (wincing)  A man of few blows as well as few letters to your name, I see. --
Imber Lack

Minotaur -- No way what? -- Geroge Jim
P.S.  So you don't do well on the sands, you think I do?  That's no reason to go and
die or something.

Elixir -- I warn you now, if I do NOT rest in peace, I'll be coming after YOU, and I
can do some serious haunting when I put my mind to it. -- Ghost of Limnor Ordin

Maximillian -- "Sharp dressers"?  I'll say!  When they talk about a razor crease in
their pants, wow, do they mean razor! -- Feordis Ink

Lord Protectors Jaguarman and Kami (or Lord and Lady if that should be appropriate)
-- Congratulations on graduating to the Big Time.  But there is a little problem.  I
have here a note requesting that I assign you "lands."  There are no lands available
for assignment.  If you care to contact some other Lord Protector who DOES have lands
but has abandoned them, and if you should manage to negotiate with this slacker for
the usufruct to the lands in question, I will be glad to assist in completing the
paperwork necessary to perform an actual transfer of title.  Let me know. --
Desthvan, Arena Manager
