                                      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 BLIZZARD, who flew up 20 points in the 
rankings after mashing CRIMSON WONDER like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya 
know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  CRIMSON WONDER was bested 
by BLIZZARD and drops 16 points.  It's a proud day for the THE ZOO stable, as their 
warrior, ZEBROE, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  Can you believe they are paying 
me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the SOLVEN arena.  Here's a 
song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad KELLUMBO'S KIDS?   Big bad KELLUMBO'S 
KIDS.  Big bad KELLUMBO'S KIDS.  SOLVEN's afraid of the big bad KELLUMBO'S KIDS.  Tra 
la la la la!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause THE 
REPUBLICANS beats feet every time KELLUMBO'S KIDS smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  
Well just about everybody wants a piece of GRANDPA RAT, who was this week's most 
challenged warrior.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Remember:  alliances are great, 
but try and take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     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.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you 
enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be 
leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster

Judge -- Well, looks like our little bet is deadlocked at four each, with the first
to 25 winning.  Hope you didn't mind the nasty downchallenge to keep your guy from
getting an easy win...hehe. -- Detective Kellumbo

Tammy -- Just as a matter of curiosity, is Kellumbo a Mormon?  All those kids!  An
endless supply.  Or I suppose he could run an orphanage. -- Zebroe
P.S.  Maybe he's a Faginist?

     I suppose being a detective would be quite an advantage if it's the last you
     mentioned. -- Ed.

Polite Beggar -- You are the most amazing fool.  If you're going to beg, "polite"
doesn't cut it, people ignore you.  And if you aren't going to be polite, you might
as well just rob them. -- Benito Chatte
P.S.  Then, you could be a Convicted Thief.

Scimitar -- That's confusing. -- Chaz Ducker
P.S.  Good try, though.

freely! -- Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire
