                                      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.  Coming up with 
a solid 4-1-2 outing, BLACKED OUT ON... has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  Hey 
everybody, watch out for TYGER, who flew up 21 points in the rankings after mashing 
MISSY MOSSY like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in 
the top ten was SWEET BETSEY, who dropped 14 points after a disappointing (to say the 
least) bout with ARISTOCRAT RUM.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but 
bloody knuckles was BLACKED OUT ON...'s BACARDI LIMON, who was turned away from the 
Duelmastership by LOSING IS FUN.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a 
bigger halberd!   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the RIZTAB arena.  Here's a 
song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad COLD IRON BLOWS?   Big bad COLD IRON 
BLOWS.  Big bad COLD IRON BLOWS.  RIZTAB's afraid of the big bad COLD IRON BLOWS.  
Tra la la la la!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  COLD IRON BLOWS + 
Weapons That go Boom = CULTS-R-US + Avoid City.  Well just about everybody wants a 
piece of TALA GOG, who was this week's most challenged warrior.  In a touching 
display by a 'touched' warrior, HURRICANE went after TALA GOG, who was higher by 23 
points.  Well, when the dust settled, HURRICANE bested TALA GOG.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Big deal, so BUDDHA got mashed 
in the Dark Arena.  With his face he was more at home with the trolls than with us. 
(Waka waka).  The audience likes blood and there was plenty of it covering MONKEY as 
he was driven to an early grave by CROWN ROYAL of the BLACKED OUT ON....  Here's some 
advice:  warriors with little wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the 
Isle.   
     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

Abyssinian Assassin -- You didn't quite assassinate my character...but it wasn't for
lack of effort. -- Missy Mossy

Madam Y -- I thought sure once my strength raise came through it would be gravy with
more gravy.  Oh well, I should be grateful they let a waste of good smelling salts
like me on the same sands as a Madam. -- Mangy

Leibniz -- Get ya an extra hour past curfew for that one. -- Dexter

Ironstorm -- I understand the Iron part.  No paring knives for you.  Iron! ...with
the accompanying storm. -- Krankykarl

Buddha -- You lulled me with your somnolent style. -- Ugly Eddie

Brother Zilch -- You should have stopped when you had the chance, though I really
enjoyed knocking you around the arena. -- Havokk

Marvanella -- Judging by your performance against me, you might want to renew that
insurance policy. -- Rej the Blade

Scat Cat -- Your name should be Cat Scat, cuz you fight like crap.  Though I will
give you points for effort, that being your first fight and all. -- Kortul

Sister Q -- Congrats on your first victory. -- Silke

The warriors of Barjin's Best stable would like to introduce our newest recruit,
Wryndyn.  We hope he shall fare better than his predecessor.

Mangy Polecat -- Mangier than any rodent I've ever seen.  It's almost enough to give
me the heaves.  Which, as you wouldn't know, is totally undignified for a lady. --
Madame Y

Silke -- How smooth it is.  Smooth as a karaoke voice timber, no, check that; smooth
as a roadkill possum's pelt, well, no, maybe not that so much either; smooth as a
fast food freezie?  Yeah, that's the silky smooth action I'm lookin for! -- Sister Q

Bacardi Limon -- That's very strange.  I like lemon, yes?  But this... very strange.
And it makes my head ache afterward. -- Tala Gog

Jasper -- Hot iron strikes. -- Tariliss
P.S.  Or maybe it's that striking is what you do when the iron is hot.  Don't wait
till it cools down.

Tyger -- Well, the skills will help you, but do I really WANT to help you?  Maybe
not.... -- Sweet Betsey

Epicurious -- Clever name, but it's a good thing neither one of us is a cat! --
Winter Shadows
P.S.  I have to get my wins while I can, since the season is warming up fast.  Thanks
for your help on that.

Rej the Blade -- Oh, heck.  Are you telling me that the FULLY JUSTIFIED pride I felt
before was ALSO the kind that goes before3 a fall?  Drat.  I didn't want to do that.
-- Marvanella

Waco Wonk -- This is good work if you can get it, but there's a lot of competition.
Better to work your way up to it, is what *I* think. -- Winter Shadows

Our congratulations to Buddha and even to Losing Is Fun, who is, at least, LEAVING
here finally. -- Sweet Magic
