                                      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!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for MOTHER GHEA NEWS, who flew up 25 points in the rankings 
after mashing SAMUEL COLT like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya know, some 
days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  SAMUEL COLT was overcame by MOTHER 
GHEA NEWS and drops 17 points.  Well, everybody's pal WALTER PIDGEON moved his record 
to 20-10-0 by defeating KHALHUMS DWARF in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 9 
recognition points.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps 
T.P.s at bay.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid VISIONS V2, please raise you hand.  
Wow.  Does ZUWAYZA really have that many liars?  For those of you who like math, try 
this one:  VISIONS V2 + Weapons That go Boom = MAN OR BEAST? + Avoid City.  Well just 
about everybody wants a piece of DOTTLE, who was this week's most challenged warrior. 
In a mismatch, our friend NEWT ROCKNE of MAN OR BEAST? got heroic notions and 
challenged DOTTLE.  What did it get him?  A 7-1-0 record, that's what.  I heard NEWT 
ROCKNE laughed all the way to the inn as his new point total of 90 was posted in the 
arena.  I guess beating DOTTLE really pays!  In a touching display by a 'touched' 
warrior, CELESTE went after RAMEX, who was higher by 21 points.  Well, when the dust 
settled, CELESTE lost to RAMEX.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  There's got to be more reason 
for the sending of CAT STEVENS to the Dark Arena than his record (3-1-0).  Anybody 
got any ideas MAN OR BEAST??  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your 
ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     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.  See ya next time 
I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Our congratulations to Walter Pidgeon, who is going to fly the coop. -- Jorja and the
Magnificent Mags

Cat Stevens -- That is truly a crime!  How about if I interview you and put you in my
book? -- True Crime

Zyane -- A most unusual collection of bumps you have.  This must be studied.  It may
mean a breakthrough in the science of phrenology. -- Modern Phrenology

There are no slaves in MY world, except those who have enslaved themselves, or
consented to it. -- Mother Ghea News
P.S.  At least, that is the party line, although it is at times difficult to put into
practice.

Ah!  It would appear that a Dangerous Criminal has broken into the House Beautiful.
I did warn her that all those Fratsfan doors were simply an invitation to thieves. --
True Crime

I can't imagine what that silly Thief thought he would accomplish.  Health is not
something one carries in a pocket that can be picked, after all. -- Health Digest,
and digestion is the key to health
