                                      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 MAYBE, who flew up 20 points in the rankings after mashing 
ONE TIME like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay 
to walk out on the sands.  ONE TIME was beat by MAYBE and drops 12 points.  Our 
battling duelmaster ROMO has managed to hold the title, fending off HOLM JOUBERT's 
none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, MIDDLE WAY 15.  Advice to 
bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
And who is this O'REILY you ask, with 8 points and a 2-1-1 record.  Ooh, the tales I 
could tell!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Here's some advice:  warriors 
with little wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     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?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), 
oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

O'Rielly -- Ooops??  Every swing you made was to my warrior's head or body and you
say "Ooops"?  When you do not intend to kill, you aim legs or arms, not head or body.
I do not have a killer on my team, but I WILL be trying to kill you and I won't say
"Oooops"! -- Padre, mgr. A Unit

Love or Confusion -- One inevitably leads to the other, eventually. -- One Time

Maybe -- Am I a maybe?  Most definitely. -- O'Reily

Romo -- I'd think you would get bored, all the time the same result.  *I* get bored.
Of course, you're a golem, maybe you aren't DESIGNED to get bored. -- Holm Joubert

Purple Haze -- Not an easy color to work with.  Makes people look jaundiced.  Better
to be done with you. -- Medan Quizzar

Adder -- I'm good with subtracters, too. -- Farlin Meeks

Manic Depression -- You expect to get sympathy for THAT?  I'm a sociopath, myself.
Well, sometimes. -- Lulu Orlene

Possible -- Probably not. -- Hillili Nakal
