                                      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!.  Hey everybody, watch out for ANACONDA, who flew 
up 21 points in the rankings after mashing EMBEZZLING SCRIBE like a melon.  Keep your 
eye on this beast.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  
BILLY JACK was defeated by PAN FOR GOLD and drops 9 points.  The most challenged 
warrior this week was GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE.  If this keeps up, our Duelmaster's going 
to need more avoids!  Drawing on all of his experience as a 21-27-3 warrior, STOGA 
STEEL went for the Duelmastership against GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE this week.  Going for 
the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was MAXIMUM RESULTS' STOGA 
STEEL, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE.  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 MAXIMUM RESULTS, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does WILLAF really have that 
many liars?  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause 
GOLDEN GLADIATORS beats feet every time MAXIMUM RESULTS smiles at them.  Try farming, 
eh?   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Here's some advice:  warriors with little 
wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in WILLAF have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Okay, so I may not be the 
world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been 
real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Gentlemen, Fellow Managers -- I am inclined to believe you both may be mistaken on
the damage issue.  Looking back through fight results have lead me to the conclusion
that damage does carry over to the next fight.  Several times my warriors arm has
hung useless at their sides, and in the next fight, one hit on that arm is
devastating and my warrior drops his weapon or quits.  Yes, I have considered the
oponent's strength and skill level.  All I ask is for another look at this problem.
I know we could all still learn about this game.  Thanks. -- Coyote

Golden Gladiators most avoided us?  Was it something we said?  Was it the extra
garlic in our stew? -- the Punny Animals

GoldPlated -- Always better to be solid than plated.  You might want to think about
that. -- John Dere

Gold Charm -- (blushing deeply) -- Billy Jack

We salute the tourney participants. -- Jorja and the Punny Animals

Gold Charm -- Are you fickle?  You flirt with Billy Jack, and then you flirt with
me... what can I think but that you aren't serious about either of us. -- Horus Mann

The Userous Merchant?  Old hat.  You really want to chisel, become a tax man. --
Ripley Byrd

I sneer at the Captured Orc. -- Billy Jack

I refrain from sneering at the Ambitious Guard. -- John Dere

Tricilliad -- I don't believe that.  In fact, I deny that it happened! -- Dee Nile
