                                      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!.  A stormcloud is brewing over the SWORD OPERA 
guildhouse.  Rumor says any more weeks like this ones 2-3-1 may send the team to the 
Dark Arena.  Coming up with a solid 2-1-0 outing, KANO CLAN has advanced 5 places in 
the rankings.  It looks like the guys(?) at REPTILE RAMPAGE had a good week as they 
went 3-1-0 to put them in 7th place.  I guess steroids help!  Hey everybody, watch 
out for BUL GOBLINHEWER, who flew up 23 points in the rankings after mashing TERRE 
HAUTE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top 
ten was TERRE HAUTE, who dropped 16 points after a disappointing (to say the least) 
bout with BUL GOBLINHEWER.  The most challenged warrior this week was MILLHAUSER.  If 
this keeps up, our Duelmaster's going to need more avoids!  TERRA SIGILLATA got 
through to the Duelmaster this turn.  No doubt she was more than anxious to kick 
MILLHAUSER's tail out of the throne!  Isn't that life?  One minute you're on top of 
the world and then next you're laid out on a slab!  MILLHAUSER was overcame by TERRA 
SIGILLATA.  Say no more.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and 
avoid aiming at that location.   
     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 NOMADIC  TRIBE?  Big bad NOMADIC 
TRIBE.  Big bad NOMADIC TRIBE.  SUNSET's afraid of the big bad NOMADIC TRIBE.  Tra la 
la la la!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch GRIM FANDANGO's act in the arena.  
Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from NOMADIC TRIBE.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  This week 9-10-1 SIMON BLOODBANE was sent to the Dark 
Arena.  I know a lot of fighters with similar records who might take notice of this.  
Big deal, so SOLOMON BLOODBANE got mashed in the Dark Arena.  With his face he was 
more at home with the trolls than with us. (Waka waka).  We might as well mark the 
passing of DREYNAR, who was relatively new to the arena at 5-1-0.  Probably killed 
before his first shave.  Yes, and another newbie bites the dust as LITTLE FANG goes 
down under the sword of BARBARIC SMURF.  Thanks to this, BARBARIC SMURF now has 19 
recognition points.  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.  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

Deviation -- I believe that is my top team spot.  I would appreciate it if you would
return it.  Just wait until these bashers start to win! -- Nomad

Fritters -- The boss seems to be blaming me for the loss of the team lead and with
challenges like that, I can see why.  Never did like fritters anyway. -- Graven Ward

Virile Man -- Okay, so my record isn't great.  I admit that.  But that sort of
matchup I'll win.  And I did.  Thanks for the challenge. -- Bul

Darkness -- A very nice little matchup.  I'd be willing to try that one again. --
Sasquatch

Yodle layhe Who -- Oh, I gotta laugh at that one!  I suppose you thought when I fell
down you had me?  Oh, no!  I don't need to be standing for the entire fight, just at
the end!  You did notice I stood up again to get the victory, didn't you? -- Walli

     Having conserved your energy with a short nap in the middle?

Miramoto Jun -- A much better random matchup.  I gotcha.  A nice little win that
earned me more than one free mug of ale! -- Abbondanza

Graven Ward - You are one crispy treat... a golden brown sheen on the outside with a
chewy center!  I might come back for seconds one day! -- Fritersatafatfarm

Miter Box -- I sure haven't seen the likes of you around my parts too often!  Thanks
for stopping by and saying hello! -- Row Dayo Drive

Ruin -- You keep providing us with generous bailouts... I hope we don't have to pay
them back anytime soon! -- Too Big To Fail

Rezurekt -- Art thou the fairest Slasher of them all? -- Fritersatafatfarm

Bul Goblinhewer -- I really thought that was going going to go the otherway around.
Good fight. -- Virile Man

Walli Weeble -- I guess Walli weebles but he don't fall down is that the concept?
Hmmm... -- Yodle Layhe Who

Despair -- Nice DESPAIRation strat, dude. -- Scarbrough Man

All -- The smurfs have returned to dominate the arena. -- Gentleben

     Ack.

Lord Protector Millhauser -- Congrats on the invite. -- Ben's Bazaar

Team Slime -- Nice three turn, brother.  I will try to reclaim. -- Stik

DM Millhauser -- Congrats on holding the title and your grad notice, I'm sure
Sherman's proud.  Now, if you could just get your oh-so-literate self to pen us a
farewell column... -- Stik and Grim Fandango

Angel -- Damn, that still feels good!! -- Rezurekt, hoping to be outta here next turn

Dreynar -- Nice matchup for you, whippersnapper.  I'll keep pluggin'! -- Blakskul

Bruno Squall -- Challenge at your risk.  I couldn't help coming back for more of
that! -- Like Water

Machide Shou -- Damn, and I was hopin' to go undefeated all the way to ADM, too...see
you 'round... -- Little Fang

Jesicka -- Yuck.  Normally I like small women that I can easily lift, being a
professional ballerino, but you're too slippery.  If you don't do something about
that--an abrassive scrub compound has been suggested by my teammates--I won't dance
with you again. -- Jonisson
P.S.  It's for your own good.  Imagine what might happen if you slipped out of my
hands into the front row of the audience, or, even worse, into the orchestra pit.
Those musicians are vicious.

Kung-Fu Master?  Well... he had some good moves, but that isn't everything.  He can't
sing at all.  I've heard alley cats that were more tuneful. -- Selia Dove

Hope Springs -- Ouch.  I noticed.  But you'd better do something about that hair,
very unattractive. -- Elise Isla

Jet Blak -- Not a chance.  Madam Butterfly won't hire a golem, however otherwise
suitable, because all the rest of us would quit if she did.  And you can't put on an
opera with one golem. -- Kallia May

Blackfoot -- Wash it, that's disgusting. -- Trelaine

Jaryul -- I hope your time in Sunset's arena is NOT coming to a close.  I need
opponents I can defeat. -- Kallia May

Our congratulations to Millhauser. -- Jorja and the Sword Opera cast

27 September 10
Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
