                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  It was a tough week for VINCERE AUT MORI, to drop 5 places in the 
rankings.  Coming up with a solid 3-1-0 outing, WASTELAND has advanced 6 places in 
the rankings.  Advancing in the rankings was THUNDR + LITENING who went from last 
turn's 1026-924-124, to this week's record of 1029-924-124.  Hey everybody, watch out 
for A'AMON, who flew up 19 points in the rankings after mashing GHOST GOBY like a 
melon.  Keep your eye on this beast.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out 
on the sands.  FLEECE lost to ZELANA and drops 15 points.  Well, everybody's pal 
BLOWN AWAY moved his record to 26-14-0 by defeating 'SLOSHERS in the Duelmaster's 
Title Bout and gaining 9 recognition points.  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!  
Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad WASTELAND?  Big bad WASTELAND.  
Big bad WASTELAND.  TALCAMA's afraid of the big bad WASTELAND.  Tra la la la la!  And 
you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause CENTER FOR OLDS beats 
feet every time WASTELAND smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well dang howdy, but if 
challenges were votes, HOFFA would be president.  Although it may be a contest he 
doesn't want to win.  Can any one out there say 'weasel'?  Oh well, just saying 
UNGOOD will do.  It challenged 26 points down to trash POND.  Definition of petty:  
UNGOOD beat POND, a mismatch of 26 points.  WOLF CICHLID of BIG MEAN FISH had better 
have a good reason for challenging down 9 points in a challenge which it won.  I 
thought WOLF CICHLID showed great skill and promise when it defeated PETIT TROLL 
BAVEUX.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Yes, and another newbie bites 
the dust as GOLD TREVALLY goes down under the sword of RAASHUB.  Thanks to this, 
RAASHUB now has 31 recognition points.  In the 'Oops, What Have I Done?' category, 
AKAI was mashed by MICHAEL JORDAN, who let AKAI know that killing members of CAROLINA 
BLUE is a no-no.  Congrats to HK-47 for revenging the death of its teammate (but more 
importantly, feeding WHET WILLIAM a bit of dirt).  Ask not the elves for counsel, for 
they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the TALCAMA giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been 
real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Suave -- Thanks for the welcome.  Our team has the reflexes of a cat and the speed of
a mongoose!!!  Not to mention the luck of Lucky the Leprechaun!  But thanks again, I
think I'll enjoy it here. -- Apex

Akai -- That really wasn't nice of you to kill me like that.  But it's ok.  My boss
always said for a genius, I didn't learn well.  So I guess it's a blessing in
disguise. -- The ghost of Dean Smith

All -- I support Vendetta Cartel's observation of The Dark Knights!  If war is
declared on V.C. by The Dark Knights, then war is also declared on The Dark Knights
of the Desolate Empire by The Avengers of Light!  We have been quietly awaiting such
a chance to expose ourselves (all interested parties contact me c/o The Barbarians:
DM 31, Attn: Timothias)!  Come, Vendetta Cartel, let us show these broke-down
"Knights" what true warriors are! -- Gemini Goldphoenix, Overlord of The Avengers of
Light

The Avengers of Light.  Another VC lackey?  What's the matter VC, are you scared?
Bringing in reinforcements.  It matters not, bring your avengers and they shall be
crushed!  I am Dark Knight Blackstorm and I represent the Desolate Empire and can
easily be found in 8, 28, 31, 47, 54, and 106.  I reply with steel and your women
shall cry when they start the body count!!!!!!!!!  Remember to sign your posts to
