                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
KOLACT.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  We now 
have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  THE CLUB now holds the crown 
and they are betting they can keep it.  Hey everybody, watch out for CENSORSHIP, who 
flew up 18 points in the rankings after mashing WILD THINGS like a melon.  Keep your 
eye on this gal.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was WILD THINGS, who 
dropped 18 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with CENSORSHIP.  
Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was THE MOONDOGS' 
FERRIN MONDOR, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by FOOTLOOSE.  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 REIGN OF PAIN?  Big bad REIGN OF PAIN.  Big bad REIGN OF PAIN.  KOLACT's 
afraid of the big bad REIGN OF PAIN.  Tra la la la la!  And you guys like to boo me?  
Well, unsling your rasberries, cause THE CLUB beats feet every time REIGN OF PAIN 
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!  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.  Its been real, and its been fun, 
but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Wild Things -- Knew that was gonna go bad when you jumped me. -- (Fat Girl) Thong...
err... Trog

Scarface -- That's what you get for killing my partner.  To bad that you are still
alive.  I shall try to remember that next time I fight you. -- Censorship

Footloose -- How the hell did that happen?  I had you.  I SO had you.  Well, maybe
next time. -- Caprica

Frost/Nixon -- Well, my lucks sure sucks.  My two first fights against 2 total
parries.  You guys suck. -- Batiatus

Terrine Orbin -- Yes, I agree censorship as a whole is truly abominable.  But it
seems to be the lifeblood of all politicians, may they all die of syphilis and rot in
hell. -- Censorship
P.S.  I took my hair style from Grace Jones.

All -- Sorry my team and I have been so quiet here.  My personal assistant crashed
but now it is working fine so I can now annoy you all again. -- Chase (Mgr. Of
Abomination)

     Something to look forward to.

Tremors -- It's beginning to look like you've lost it. -- Ferrin Mondor

Kamikazi Kim -- Permanent eclipse for me, I guess. -- Ghost of Terrine Orbin

Bonnie -- Next time I'll bring a book. -- Deimoon Farr

Clyde -- Ah, you are the victim of a bias.  I have been studying that.  Lose your
first fight, and it sets up a bias against later wins. -- Iayelle Orbin
P.S.  Of course, some people claim that if you lose your first fight, you have no
place to go but up, so it's a GOOD thing.  I guess it depends on what you're trying
to excuse on a given day, doesn't it?

Firefox -- Why would you be a source of pain?  It's true, you aren't netscape, but
and don't have that cool little icon with the comets whizzing past, but other than
that, hey, if it works, fine. -- Monzar Obrisar
