                                      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!.  Say good-bye to CRIMSON DEATH, as they are 
pushed from the coveted top team spot by the BLUE MOON stable.  Hey everybody, watch 
out for SAFFIRA, who flew up 21 points in the rankings after mashing EMBEZZLING 
SCRIBE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Our battling duelmaster VENTRIIE 
has managed to hold the title, fending off BLU JON's none too subtle advances.  
Better luck next time, BLUE MOON.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get 
a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that BLUE MOON was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of BLUE MOON's warriors, 
I'm not surprised!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  BLUE MOON + 
Weapons That go Boom = DARK WARDS + Avoid City.  And who is this BLEU BONET you ask, 
with 102 points and a 16-13-2 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  Well, it looks 
like TOREADOR wasn't happy with last turn's rank, so she went for broke by 
challenging up 31 points.  No guts, no glory.  This week TOREADOR 17-13-2 fought BLEU 
BONET 16-13-2 and in losing gained 4 points.  I know several gladiators who could go 
for a few fights like that.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  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.  Okay, so I may not be the world's best comedian, 
but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  And remember, you can pick your 
friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The 
Unknown Spymaster
