                                      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 BLUE MOON, as they are pushed 
from the coveted top team spot by the QUEEN stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for RED 
SPECIAL, who flew up 11 points in the rankings after mashing KWEE ZUN ART like a 
melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was KWEE 
ZUN ART, who dropped 4 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with RED 
SPECIAL.  In front of all the crowds, BICYCLE RACE took the Duelmaster's crown for 
his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  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!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, 
cause DEVIATION beats feet every time BLUE MOON smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Here's some advice:  warriors 
with little wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in ZUKAL have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Okay, so I may not be the 
world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been 
real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster
