                                      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 DAWN, who flew up 24 points in the rankings after mashing CALEB DOOR 
like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  And falling like a basher in the top ten 
was DEBRA ELSITH, who dropped 11 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout 
with WINFIELD.  Try as hard as the 82ND ILLINOIS stable might, they were unable to 
find their warrior (and ex-Duelmaster) LT. OLSEN before this week's fights.  Advice 
to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Did you hear that ALL THINGS FLOYD was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing 
the personal hygiene of ALL THINGS FLOYD's warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys 
like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause BODY OF MUSIC beats feet every 
time ALL THINGS FLOYD smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Well, the arena is no place for slow learners (and 
hopefully T.P.s) and DAWN demonstrated that very violently on CALEB DOOR's body.  
Carrion Bird Heaven:  CALEB DOOR was killed by DAWN (The true definition of 'Street 
Pizza').  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may encounter 
problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     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.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The 
Unknown Spymaster

Our congratulations to Lt. Olsen and Dawn. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

Dawn -- I hope someone stops YOU from going out with a win, too!  Oh, all right,
maybe I don't feel that much annoyance.  After all, we should each "stick to our
last," and wins are your thing, but they sure aren't mine! -- Senlum Nosh

Lt. Olsen -- This Door would like to hit you on the way out, eh? -- Caleb Door

Lt Mueller -- It may've been handy for YOU, but from my side of the fight, it was a
darned nuisance. -- Morris Ormran
P.S.  Makes you wonder, though, with an advanced expert in attack, why don't I attack
more?  Afraid to tarnish it, maybe?

Winfield -- Hey, great!  If you weren't a zombie, I'd offer you a drink to celebrate
that win. -- Fenster Golly

Fratsfa Slave--ha! -- Debra Elsith
