                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for RAITH, who flew up 14 points in the 
rankings after mashing TREESHADOW like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, 
some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  WREN was defeated by 
STOLEYOURSPOT and drops 9 points.  Drawing on all of his experience as a 21-5-1 
warrior, VARICK went for the Duelmastership against AXEL this week.  It's a proud day 
for the TERMINUS stable, as their warrior, VARICK, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  
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!  
And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid SHEWISH BUFFET, please raise you 
hand.  Wow.  Does MALCORN really have that many liars?  And you guys like to boo me?  
Well, unsling your rasberries, cause TERMINUS beats feet every time SHEWISH BUFFET 
smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, 
WREN would be president.  Although it may be a contest she doesn't want to win.  Can 
any one out there say 'weasel'?  Oh well, just saying QUASIL will do.  He challenged 
24 points down to trash SABBATH.  Definition of petty:  QUASIL bested SABBATH, a 
mismatch of 24 points.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  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.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've 
got you worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster

Sara -- I'm a mean one! -- StoleYourSpot

Axel -- I almost thought you were going to drop there.  I think I'm going to have to
actually start using a sword with all of you Aimers running about. -- Quasil

Wren -- Do you like the new offensive me?  It's a whole lot less painful from my
perspective.  -- Varick

Small Bite -- No Bite. -- Me

Killer -- Impressive. -- Havoc

Embezzling Scribe -- Did you take notes?  You being a scribe and all. -- Raith

     Yes, and he's been trying to sell them.  He has no shame.

Duskblood Pudding -- I think I speak for all of us parry types when I say that this
Aimed Blow invasion across Alastari is rather disconcerting.  I think you should just
practice on each other. -- Quasil

Little Biter -- Two busted scimitars?  That's some bad luck.  Or some faulty steel.
It was pretty amusing watching you punch Taedium, though. -- Quasil

Duskblood Pudding -- What, you're looking for more people to kill?

Killer -- That is a short-sighted attitude.  Trees are a CRITICAL part of the
ecosystem. -- Treeshadow

Stoleyourspot -- I did too!  I use it OFTEN.  I believe cats call it "litterbox." --
Badger

Hmm, two-three this time.  Varick is unkind to small birds, Taedium doesn't like to
be bitten, Eric discovered that the Badger also bites, and where the hair is short
(don't shave next time), and the grease from frying an ogre is bad for trees.  As to
Snowfoot's defeat of the Beggar, this less said about that, the better. -- Wren, for
the Greenwardens
