                                      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!.  Advancing in the rankings was THE DOGHOUSE who 
went from last turn's 716-795-13, to this week's record of 720-796-13.  Hey 
everybody, watch out for CLOWN, who flew up 11 points in the rankings after mashing 
CRACK BABY like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't 
pay to walk out on the sands.  FOEHN was overcame by BIGFOOTS and drops 6 points.  
Unlike most arenas, FOIN managed to get his challenge off against the 0-0-0 
ARENAMASTER VASHKU.  The crowds were amazed this turn, as ARENAMASTER VASHKU killed 
the Duelmaster, FOIN, leaving F WORDS in mourning.  This incredible death has 
allowed, I might add, CLOWN from HIGH SCHOOL PROM to ascend to the throne of 
Duelmaster, and I hear DARK ARENA is not happy.  Advice to bashers--never force 
anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid THE DEATH SQUAD, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does TOBIR really have that many 
liars?  For those of you who like math, try this one:  THE DEATH SQUAD + Weapons That 
go Boom = F WORDS + Avoid City.  Well just about everybody wants a piece of 
FILIBUSTER, who was this week's most challenged warrior.  Challenging down 16 points 
was FILIBUSTER.  Pretty soon he'll be using two shields and selling 'T.P.:  The only 
way to clean up' pins.  Well FILIBUSTER, just can't get an easy fight anymore can 
you?  You thought challenging down 16 points to LUG NUT would be fun.  Right?  Wrong! 
Well, it looks like TIMMY wasn't happy with last turn's rank, so he went for broke by 
challenging up 26 points.  No guts, no glory.  I heard TIMMY laughed all the way to 
the inn as his new point total of 20 was posted in the arena.  I guess beating LASSO 
really pays!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  In the 'Oops, What Have I Done?' category, FOEHN was 
mashed by BIGFOOTS, who let FOEHN know that killing members of THE DOGHOUSE is a 
no-no.  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your ally in the arena with 
you and see what happens.   
     Well, there's the manager of the TOBIR giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  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

Our congratulations to Foin. -- Jorja and the Doghouse pack

And we salute the tourney participants. -- Jorja and the Doghouse pack, again

Crab Man -- I didn't think I'd like crabs, I mean, everyone says they're fish.  But
they're kinda good.  Must be all that butter. -- Doggo

Fantassin -- I don't understand this.  I mean, sure, we rolled around and had a good
time, too short, but it was fun.  And you won.  Okay, like I care about that?  You
aren't after my kibble, so what the heck, you know?  But what's this about points?  I
didn't see any points.  I know I didn't bring any to the fight, did you bring points?
-- Bigfoots
P.S.  Hey, it's my feet that are big, not my brain!

Lug Nut -- You hurt my teeth. -- The Watch Dog

Asphyxiate -- If it hadn't been for that damned choke collar, you would have LOST.
And if I find out where that collar came from, someone is getting BITTEN.  That is
not a part of my regular equipment. -- Lasso
