                                      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 NOTE, as they are pushed 
from the coveted top team spot by the DREAMERS stable.  A stormcloud is brewing over 
the BLUE NOTE guildhouse.  Rumor says any more weeks like this ones 0-3-0 may send 
the team to the Dark Arena.  Hey everybody, watch out for ITCHY FROGGY, who flew up 
21 points in the rankings after mashing ORIOLA like a melon.  Keep your eye on this 
gal.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  HERBIE HANCOCK was 
beat by HERMIAS and drops 13 points.  Well here's a duelmaster that doesn't sit back 
and say 'Challenge me'!  XENOPHANES made a Dark Arena Challenge against HEZDLAT THE 
GIANT this week.  The crowds were amazed this turn, as HEZDLAT THE GIANT killed the 
Duelmaster, XENOPHANES, leaving DREAMERS in mourning.  This incredible death has 
allowed, I might add, ITCHY FROGGY from KAOS FROGS to ascend to the throne of 
Duelmaster, and I hear DARK ARENA is not happy.  Can you believe they are paying me 
10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad DREAMERS?  Big bad DREAMERS.  
Big bad DREAMERS.  RIZTAB's afraid of the big bad DREAMERS.  Tra la la la la!  And 
you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause KAOS FROGS beats feet 
every time DREAMERS 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!  This week 13-4-1 KUNG PO FROG 
was sent to the Dark Arena.  I know a lot of fighters with similar records who might 
take notice of this.  KUNG PO FROG says to his dog--'Who should I fight this week?'.  
Dog says 'STONE GOLEM MARK II'.  So the guy dies.  Moral?  Put lying dogs to sleep.  
Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your ally in the arena with you and 
see what happens.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in RIZTAB have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it 
hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Our congratulations to Xenophanes and Kung Po Frog.  We'll bake you a cake. -- the
ladies at Sweet Magic

We salute the tourney participants, with a special salute for Hermias, tourney victor
in the Rookies and obviously a source of trouble to come in the arena. -- Jorja and
Sweet Magic

Sleepy -- Our condolences on the loss of Aedesia. -- Jorja and company

Short Peter thought I couldn't over-feed him.  He was wrong, and it will be weeks
before he can face another plate of cookies. -- Oriola

Hermias -- Having seen the tourney results, much is now clear, and I don't feel badly
about that loss.  Well, no more than usual, anyway. -- Taffy
P.S.  Yeah, I know, that explanation / excuse won't last for long, but I'm going to
use it while I can.

Sammy the Bull -- You're too TALL to be a dwarf!  You're confusing me. -- Teresianna

Mud Mud Frog -- Does that mean extra mud?  I've been told that the syrup at the
bottom of my mocha cups is like mud, but only by insensitive clods who don't
appreciate it. -- Koko Leah

Ella Fitz -- You resisted the vanilla easily, and held out against the chocolate,
but... when the strawberry came along, you didn't have any more "no" left in you.
That's the way I plan things, you see. -- Nelli Politana
