                                      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.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for TREESHADOW, who flew up 30 points in the rankings after mashing SARA 
like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk 
out on the sands.  BADGER was defeated by KILLER and drops 14 points.  VARICK got 
through to the Duelmaster this turn.  No doubt he was more than anxious to kick 
DUSKBLOOD PUDDING's tail out of the throne!  Well, everybody's pal DUSKBLOOD PUDDING 
moved his record to 13-2-2 by defeating VARICK in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and 
gaining 22 recognition points.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so 
try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     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 TERMINUS, please raise you hand.  
Wow.  Does MALCORN really have that many liars?  For those of you who like math, try 
this one:  TERMINUS + Weapons That go Boom = CRUCIAL TAUNT + Avoid City.  And who is 
this ERIC you ask, with 61 points and a 14-7-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  
In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, TAEDIUM went after STOLEYOURSPOT, who 
was higher by 25 points.  Well, when the dust settled, TAEDIUM defeated 
STOLEYOURSPOT.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  The audience likes blood and there was 
plenty of it covering SARA as she was driven to an early grave by TREESHADOW of the 
GREENWARDENS.  On a sad note, SARA found an early retirement at the hands of 
TREESHADOW this week.  I wonder what CRUCIAL TAUNT will be doing about it?  Here's 
some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may encounter problems on the trail 
to the Isle.   
     Well, there's the manager of the MALCORN 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.  See ya next time 
I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Quasil -- Assur says I have to try that again.  I ask him WHY?!?  His answer:
"Because he says so!" -- StoleYourSpot

Wren -- Strange I may have looked, but I got the spot, didn't I? -- StoleYourSpot

StoleYourSpot -- Whatever Assur says to do, do it.  Thank him for some tome he wrote
about Bashers.  My manager has found it incredibly helpful. -- Quasil

Wren -- Not that you don't look good in leather, but I think you should wear
something with a little more steel in it. -- Varick

Sara -- Me no stay down. -- Me

Treeshadow -- Better to chop you down then end up in the shadows. -- Raith

Snowfoot -- I am skinny.  You know if I ever get killed my name will be rather
prophetic won't it? -- Raith

Treeshadow -- Yes, you did put me in the shade.  Apparently if I don't get my act
turned around I'm going to be fighting in the torchlight. -- Havoc

Snowfoot -- That was a lot less painful than our last duel. -- Havoc

Quasil -- Stand there or not, I concede that particular spot to you. -- StoleYourSpot

     If you sent personals to hal and they do not appear in this newsletter, it's
