                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
SOLVEN.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for 365 GTB4, who flew up 20 points in the rankings after 
mashing SLUSH like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it 
doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  SLUSH was overcame by 365 GTB4 and drops 14 
points.  It's a proud day for the JUST CHILLIN stable, as their warrior, UP, 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.  Did you 
hear that JUST CHILLIN was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of JUST CHILLIN's warriors, I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may not be funny, 
but catch KELLUMBO'S KIDS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft 
at running from JUST CHILLIN.  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, FROZEN 
FANNY would be president.  Although it may be a contest she doesn't want to win.  
Getting lots of flowers from sympathetic fans was OH WELL, who was successfully 
challenged by TAMMY who had a mere 22 points more than OH WELL.  Definition of petty: 
TAMMY overcame OH WELL, a mismatch of 22 points.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  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 SOLVEN giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya 
bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

To those involved, no, I have not abandoned your stories.  But I've been letting them
drift, and that has to stop, so I am taking the time to make sure that I know where
they are going, more than just "what happens next" dreamed up on the fly, before
resuming work on them.  No new stories will be started until at least one of the old
ones has concluded, for the same reason:  quantity can't substitute for quality.
Your patience in this matter is appreciated. -- the Scribe
