                                      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.  For every 
winner there is a loser.  Speaking of losers, lets take a look at DEAD POETS, who 
went down to 2nd from 6th.  Life is tough.  Coming up with a solid 4-1-1 outing, WHEN 
EAGLES DARE has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for 
GREEN BEANS, who flew up 24 points in the rankings after mashing SENLUM NOSH like a 
melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on 
the sands.  CANDIED YAMS was overcame by KAIREEN LAMAR and drops 9 points.  Well 
here's a duelmaster that doesn't sit back and say 'Challenge me'!  JUNIOR VASQUEZ 
made a challenge against ALIDA BERN this week.  Well, everybody's pal JUNIOR VASQUEZ 
moved his record to 11-3-0 by defeating ALIDA BERN in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and 
gaining 16 recognition points.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver 
this stuff?   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the ALJAFIR arena.  And hey, 
kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid ZOMBIE SQUAD 2, please raise you hand.  Wow.  
Does ALJAFIR really have that many liars?  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, 
unsling your rasberries, cause WHEN EAGLES DARE beats feet every time ZOMBIE SQUAD 2 
smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well just about everybody wants a piece of ALIDA 
BERN, who was this week's most challenged warrior.  In a touching display by a 
'touched' warrior, WHIRLING FROGGY went after CORNBREAD STUFFING, who was higher by 
18 points.  Well, when the dust settled, WHIRLING FROGGY was overcame by CORNBREAD 
STUFFING.  BLUE MOUNTAIN of WHEN EAGLES DARE had better have a good reason for 
challenging down 14 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought BLUE MOUNTAIN 
showed great skill and promise when he beat YOU SCREAM.  All right, so I slept 
through it!  Big deal!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  EAGLEPOOP defied all odds and slew MOUNTAIN 
TROLL in the Dark Arena.  The only ones displeased were the buzzards, as MOUNTAIN 
TROLL's meat is notoriously tough.  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 ALJAFIR 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

No challenges other than Dark Arena, no avoids.  But at least we had eleven fights,
counting those three Dark Arena matches, and only three other standbys....  Wait.
Three Dark Arena matches from eleven leaves eight.  Three of those have standbys....
Only thirteen active gladiators?  Cheese louise!  I hope the replacements come back
as good solid prospects and take up regular fighting here, we NEED them. -- Jorja
P.S.  This is why I mostly don't read the newsletters.  Too depressing.

Junior Vasquez -- I have to tell you, that was a RELIEF.  I was dreading the
necessity of finding something to say in another "column." -- Bellona Chist
P.S.  Jorja insists, you see.  We take the title, we write.  Talk about pressure.

Ah, the Veteran Mercenary.  An old friend. -- Zebd Arvin

Reaper -- It's the eunuch thing, it impairs your vital forces. -- Alida Bern
P.S.  And makes you a lot less interesting.

Zombie -- Listen, just LOOKING at you was devastating. -- Kaireen Lamar

Cornbread Stuffing -- Hmm, cornbread suddenly sounds like a very good idea.  I think
I'll have some.  Now.  Or very quickly. -- Senlum Nosh
P.S.  If I put it off, it won't happen.
