                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for MAD DOG RUSSO, who flew up 15 points in 
the rankings after mashing PERSISTENT BEGGAR like a melon.  Keep your eye on this 
guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  MAGIC TODAY was 
defeated by FREE PARKING and drops 4 points.  Our battling duelmaster BEETLE BAILEY 
has managed to hold the title, fending off HEMLOCK's none too subtle advances.  
Better luck next time, SERPENTS HOLD II.  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 SERPENTS HOLD II was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing 
the personal hygiene of SERPENTS HOLD II's warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of 
you who like math, try this one:  SERPENTS HOLD II + Weapons That go Boom = MAN OR 
BEAST? + Avoid City.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  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.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  Hasta la 
bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

Well, we survived a numerologically suspect cycle with a beetle as a duelmaster, so
what more can we be up against, eh? -- Farmers Almanac, Voice of Reason

And we salute the Face-to-Face tourney participants, now properly reported under the
true title of their tourney.  The death of Wolf Blitzer is a sad thing, but we will
persevere.  New wolves will be introduced to keep the wretched deer in check.  We
will not be defeated! -- Missouri Wildlife and the other Mags

Bear Grylls -- The trouble with you bears is that you eat too much.  Always hungry.
I realize you have a place in the ecosystem, but that place is NOT in the desert.
Back to the mountains with you! -- Desert Plants

The Userous Merchant wanted to put an "asphalt belt" across the landscape.  Called it
a "tollway" or some such.  I couldn't allow that.  Too hard on the snapping turtles,
who are not fast when it comes to crossing roads. -- Missouri Wildlife
P.S.  The deer can take care of themselves.  There are too many deer around here
anyway.

The Fratsfa Slave wasn't a very good subject, no resistance to push against, but he
was better than NO subject.  Maybe I'll turn him back into a human in time for the
next round of fights, and maybe not.  Nothing wrong with a spare frog in the area. --
Magic Today

The Userous Merchant just won't quit.  He's an idiot.  I could show him--I *offered*
to show him--any number of wise old sayings about the penalties of greed.  Did he
listen?  No!  He just laughed and tried to hit on me. -- Farmers Indignant Almanac
