                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for DECIMATE, who flew up 20 points in the rankings after mashing XENO YOHL 
like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten 
was OIL SLICK, who dropped 7 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout 
with PANDEMIC.  Well, if ya don't shows up at the laundromat, ya can'ts wash yer 
clothes.  BIG JOY did not fight this week so his title was forfeit.  It's a proud day 
for the MADTOWN stable, as their warrior, GIGLIE, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  
An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
And who is this XENO YOHL you ask, with 24 points and a 4-12-0 record.  Ooh, the 
tales I could tell!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they 
will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the LYRATILAN 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.  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

Big Joy -- While Great Pumkin will be missed for his record, he was DA material
coasting by on luck and strategy, but definitely not skill.  Unfortunately, that
pretty much applies to all of the old schoolers on Fantasia Isle, so this could be
the best thing that happened to you. -- SwineTiger, mgr. of Fantasia Isle

Painless -- There now, you didn't feel a thing, did you?  Have I mastered the gentle
put-down, or what? -- Beltran Foss

White Spider -- If I'd been drunk, I might have believed in you, but since I wasn't
(shrug), you're just an illusion, right?  Along with the pink elephants. -- Erhlie
Fay

Oil Slick -- Euwh!  Messy. -- Xeno Yohl
P.S.  And I don't have a few centuries to wait for biodegradation.

The Dark Knights sat at the Dark Table with grim faces.  All present knew that there
could be no quarter.  The Forces of Desolation would be unleashed.  There would be no
turning back, no mercy and no hesitation to do what was necessary.  Teeth gritted and
knuckles whitened with fury as the IMPERIAL PROCLAMATION was signed by each Dark
Knight.
