                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
ZUWAYZA.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Say 
good-bye to TAHAHN HAH, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the 
WALI'S FINEST stable.  A stormcloud is brewing over the TAHAHN HAH guildhouse.  Rumor 
says any more weeks like this ones 1-4-0 may send the team to the Dark Arena.  Coming 
up with a solid 3-0-0 outing, THE SIERRAS has advanced 4 places in the rankings.  Hey 
everybody, watch out for FLIGHT JOURNAL, who flew up 21 points in the rankings after 
mashing JEWEL like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in 
the top ten was JEWEL, who dropped 18 points after a disappointing (to say the least) 
bout with FLIGHT JOURNAL.  Try as hard as the IDES OF MARCH stable might, they were 
unable to find their warrior (and ex-Duelmaster) DARDANIUS before this week's fights. 
In front of all the crowds, MURPHY took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give 
the bum two weeks.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger 
halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that TAHAHN HAH was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of TAHAHN HAH's warriors, 
I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch TEAM CHAOS' act in the 
arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from TAHAHN HAH.  Well dang 
howdy, but if challenges were votes, ONG-BAK would be president.  Although it may be 
a contest he doesn't want to win.  Challenging down 22 points was METELLUS.  Pretty 
soon he'll be using two shields and selling 'T.P.:  The only way to clean up' pins.  
Here is a definition of happiness:  LUSCIOUS defeated METELLUS to go from 4 to 21 
recognition points.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Carrion Bird Cinematic Humor:  TEERAPONG 
II:  THE REMATCH.  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 ZUWAYZA 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.  Its been real, 
and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Ong-Bak -- Was a little surprised at the outcome of our fight, things aren't looking
too good for a style such as mine up here near the top. -- Murphy

Solstice -- Man, you are a tough fighter to bring down, I started getting really
tired and thought is this warrior ever gonna quit. -- Red Lake

Luscious -- Oh yes you are, I cut into you just like a Chocolate Cream Pie. -- 18k
Feet

Flight Journal -- I'm amazed you can get off the ground. -- Matarsse Fury

Finesse -- You move so well.  Very hypnotic. -- Venenoso

Time -- I guess I ran out of time. -- Fregadera

Metellus -- Good use of your weapon.  I wasn't expecting much out of that. --
Rechoncho

Dardanius -- Enough with the goodbyes.  Get moving already. -- Hideki Hao

Blood Sports -- You want blood?!  I accept your challenge.  And yes, there will be
blood! -- Hideki Hao

"Those in the stands shift their attention to the warriors."  Oh, yeah?  So what was
their attention on before?  Why are we paying these enormous fees for pre-game bands
and dancing girls if the audience is spending all its time gossiping?  And do NOT
tell me their attention was on said bands and dancers, because I'm not blind, I could
tell very well that they weren't even LOOKING at the arena floor. -- Jorja

Dardanius -- Hmm, we just straddle right over the ides of June, which I am told was
in some fashion significant.  All nonsense, of course, a totally artificial construct
of "time."  Not that I care.  Humans, who needs 'em?  Also, I do NOT need the title,
nor want it.  The position is too conspicuous, to likely to make one a target.  I
prefer to be the one seeking a target rather than the target being sought. -- Blood
Sports
P.S.  Congratulations on having a tv challenge to use.

Fregadera -- Ah, you're quite the young pussycat, aren't you?  Stick with me and I'll
introduce you to the occasionally famous. -- Times

Matarse Fury -- You're flying too low, pull up, dammit!  (loud noises and jolting
shocks)  Argh.  You crashed right INTO me where I was parked off to the side of the
taxi lane! -- Flight Journal

Hmm, the Ambitious Guard taught me nothing.  A waste of my time. -- Nifty Nickel
P.S.  Although I won't refuse the win.

The... the Dangerous Criminal stole my hubcaps! -- Hot Rod the shocked

Lek Tormuz, Merchant and Moneylender -- Well, now you'll have to go after the
Dangerous Criminal, as HE is now in possession of the Hubcaps. -- Hot Rod

Hot Rod II -- Ah!  I have been waiting for a chance to acquire the Hubcaps. -- Marco
the Blackhand, as Dangerous as they come

Nifty Nickel -- I want to place an ad:  Experienced guard seeking light-risk
position. -- Halstorna of Delarq Tor, Ambitious Guard
