                                      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 MITCHELL PAIGE, who flew up 15 points in 
the rankings after mashing MIRESSEA POOLE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  
And falling like a basher in the top ten was MIRESSEA POOLE, who dropped 9 points 
after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with MITCHELL PAIGE.  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!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  DA1 says to his dog--'Who should I fight this week?'.  Dog 
says 'DARK CHAMPION'.  So the guy dies.  Moral?  Put lying dogs to sleep.  Here's 
some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may encounter problems on the trail 
to the Isle.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in ZORPUNT have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Inari -- I know you're abysmal, it says so on your registration papers, but I didn't
realize you were NUTS, too.  You could get killed doing that. -- Morlin Poole

Raven Tarot -- Ah, g'wan, it's out of print! -- Lorenso Poole

Manuel Perez -- You're amazingly annoying for an official Good Guy.  It must be some
kind of art. -- Travis T Flete, who manages to be annoying without being good

Frank Peregory -- Odd, this must be some kind of lucky day for the Pooles.  I like
it. -- Miressea Poole

T-Bird Yourk -- I'm here to tromple someone who did wrong by my sister.  However, I
see it wasn't you, and I have to save my energies for the jobs that matter. --
Baalbekkr Tchones

Wendell -- I could have put some effort into cursing you, too, but it seems that the
spirits of the dead are under attack and I need all my energies to defend myself on
my way through Limbo to the true Land of the Dead (story on page 29, updates every
two weeks).  You'll just have to find some other she-cats to chase. -- Ghost of Bekki
Tchones

Baby Karlie -- I never did like bugs, even ones with ears. -- Lorenso
P.S.  But you could try to change my mind.

Ash Leela -- But you're very stare-worthy there. -- Gilbo Shortaxe, Khalhums Dwarf

                                 Order of Lost Souls

     Where there is a beginning, there is an end.  Where there is a whole, there is a
part.  Where there is light, there is dark.  All these are found to be true and along
with the most important, when something is lost it can always be found.
     Many a person has walked this land in one form or another.  Some truly believe
that here is there and there is here but who really knows?  Among the peoples of this
great land many have felt lost in time and in place.  Some have gone as far as to be
lost of soul....
     Although most are thought to have been born into this world in a mortal way, no
one can be sure.  Life is something they have in a way but a torturous joke to them
in all others.  They live in a sense as they are here and now and having mind and
knowledge.  They are flesh and blood of one sort of another.  They cast a shadow as
all things living do.  Blood courses through their veins.
     These beings have become wraiths drifting here and there, knowing that they
truly belong nowhere.  Searching for that one thing that they seem to be missing or
the one thing in them that puts them beyond others.  These people have become masters
of many things as time seems to have no hold.  For not even time can find those that
are truly lost.  Many of these beings have drifted toward the gladiatorial games.  In
the blood and chaos of the arenas something holds them like no other.  It's the loss
of something they have never had or something they had so long ago it seems to have
never been.  LIFE.
     A few of the more shall we say "human" of these beings have settled into many
arenas around the land.  The loss of life and the crazed emotions of the arenas
giving them glimpses of things they longed for but seemed incapable of attaining.
     A number of these lost ones saw in each other something that might be able to
help the other.  They spent many a day traveling to and fro, for what is time to one
who it doesn't touch.  The more time they spent together the more they seemed to
change.  No one noticed the change in the others but each recognized it in himself.
Years passed and the changes stopped.  Each had been changed in different ways but
all felt more whole.  A discussion ensued between them.  They came to a realization
that in each other they had found parts of themselves that had been missing.  Then
came the next thought.  If they could find more of like minded lost ones they might
eventually find what they always wanted, their true selves.
     The group settled down to think things through.  They finally came up with an
idea they all could accept.  They would form an organization that through their
arenas through out the land they would seek out other lost ones.  If they were of
like mind they would be invited to join the group and seek that special something
they all desired.
     This was how it began and how it still is.  The Order of Lost Souls was formed
and the search began.  The original members numbered six.  They were Baphomet,
Blackstorm, Hammer, JGW, Reaper and Wretch.  These members of the Order spread their
gladiator stables through out the realm seeking others like them.  Through blood and
death they lived through others.  One day hoping to live for themselves.  For as they
all know what is lost must eventually be found....

CALLING ALL THUGS, BRUTES, OGRES, QUARTER HALF WITS, SHALLOW HALBERD ENTHUSIASTS AND
MAUL RATS:  Since the Bashing style has often been maligned in the forums, it is time
to give the style a little tough love with the following concept:  An ALL-BASHER
arena.  The rules are simple--enter the arena as a rookie basher.  That's it.  RSI
said I need to get 20 managers on board and I'm about half way there.  If you are
interested in taking part, PM me in the forums or email me:  chase at accesspr.com
and put D2 in the subject header.
