                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  It was a tough week for DIETIES AND DEMIGODS, 
to drop 7 places in the rankings.  Coming up with a solid 3-2-0 outing, LOST 
SENTINELS has advanced 5 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for BRN 
VON SPEEDSTER, who flew up 33 points in the rankings after mashing GILGAMESH like a 
melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on 
the sands.  JASON THE MASON was overcame by THE OGRE TROLL and drops 8 points.  
Drawing on all of his experience as a 17-12-1 warrior, KININVIE went for the 
Duelmastership against BUMBLE RUMBLE this week.  Well, everybody's pal BUMBLE RUMBLE 
moved his record to 17-6-1 by defeating KININVIE in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and 
gaining 14 recognition points.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a 
day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the SEAM arena.  And hey, 
kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid HUCKLE'S CATS, please raise you hand.  Wow.  
Does SEAM really have that many liars?  For those of you who like math, try this one: 
HUCKLE'S CATS + Weapons That go Boom = THIRSTY THUGS + Avoid City.  Well just about 
everybody wants a piece of LADY SONGSTEEL, who was this week's most challenged 
warrior.  Can any one out there say 'weasel'?  Oh well, just saying CPT. BUZZY will 
do.  He challenged 17 points down to trash LADY SONGSTEEL.  Definition of petty:  
CPT. BUZZY killed LADY SONGSTEEL, a mismatch of 17 points.  In a touching display by 
a 'touched' warrior, MINNESOTA JONES went after PITTYVAICH, who was higher by 24 
points.  Well, when the dust settled, MINNESOTA JONES was bested by PITTYVAICH.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  This round goes to I'M NOT 
EGGBERT, their 19-9-1 warrior, CPT. BUZZY slew the 18-12-4 LADY SONGSTEEL.  Stay 
tuned next week to see what happens.  I have no doubt that I'M NOT EGGBERT will be 
celebrating long and loud their warrior BRN VON SPEEDSTER's slaying of GILGAMESH on 
the sands.  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.  Its been 
real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster
