                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
ZORPUNT.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  We 
now have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  MEDAL OF HONOR A3 now 
holds the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  Hey everybody, watch out for 
QITOU, who flew up 20 points in the rankings after mashing EMBEZZLING SCRIBE like a 
melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on 
the sands.  MITCHELL PAIGE was subdued by MIRESSEA POOLE and drops 7 points.  Going 
for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was KRILL CAVALRY's TRAVIS 
T FLETE, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by MANUEL PEREZ.  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!  
Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, LORENSO POOLE would be president.  
Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.   
     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.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Manuel Perez -- Gods, and you only have eleven fights!  It will be MONTHS before you
graduate.  (heavy sigh)  No two ways about it, somebody has to kill you SOON.  You're
just HERE too much. -- Travis T Flete

Manuel Perez -- I won't say you should ignore Travis, you should definitely not go
into alleys with him, but bear in mind that what you here from him is simple
jealousy. -- Tiralea Flete, exasperated to be even a cousin

Da1 -- It's odd on the face of it.  To have given you that arena name, your manager
must have felt a certain lack of confidence in your ability, and yet you have proven
him wrong many times.  Managers are strange. -- Miressea Poole

Does Nothing -- This is true, but you do nothing so WELL, it must surely make up for,
umm, other aspects? -- Morlin Poole
P.S.  And you're a splendid teacher, too!  Remarkable and pleasant.  Let me buy you a
drink.

Mordant Deserter.  Hmm, he actually taught me two skills!  In that case, I guess I
can shrug it off and say, "Oh, well, a win, two skills, I guess I'll take it." --
Lorenso Poole

Raven Tarot -- This is abysmal?  I liked it fine. -- Bekki Tchones
P.S.  No, I am NOT your secret admirer.  The very idea!  I would never do something
like that.

Mitchell Paige and Frank Peregory -- Expect my associates to call on you. -- Kusster,
Highly Dangerous Standby with Criminal Overtones
P.S.  Anonymously, and from ambush.

Lorenso Poole and Uluru -- When I think that I could be sitting quietly in a Mordanti
prison, breaking a few stones, stamping out a few license plates, and I actually
WORKED to escape and come back here... for this?  I must be insane. -- Jessaro Dra,
Mordant Escapee

Inari -- Heck. -- Kalzak Steeleye, Beggar in Good Standing
P.S.  Does this mean I don't get enough money for dinner or a drink?
