                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Hey everybody, watch out for SOLDIER 4, who 
flew up 21 points in the rankings after mashing MOLDRAUN like a melon.  Keep your eye 
on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was MOLDRAUN, who dropped 16 
points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with SOLDIER 4.  It's a proud 
day for the GOLDEN CANYON stable, as their warrior, GOLDERIE, 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!  
Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, SOLDIER 1 would be president.  
Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.  SPECKLED GECKO of DOC LEGRAND'S 
LAB had better have a good reason for challenging down 15 points in a challenge which 
she lost.  I thought SPECKLED GECKO showed great skill and promise when she was 
overcame by PIKE.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Well, the arena is no place for slow learners (and 
hopefully T.P.s) and SOLDIER 1 demonstrated that very violently on TIMBER 
RATTLESNAKE's body.  Knowing when to use the right tactics at the proper time is a 
very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in CALEAM have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Okay, so I may not be the 
world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been 
real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Arthur Beyer -- What I don't understand is why hanging out with you, if I could call
our encounters that, which is perhaps debateable, makes my headache WORSE. -- Loris
Key
P.S.  And it upsets my stomach besides.

The Khalhums Dwarf is OUTRAGEOUS!  Besides being not a dwarf, which is bad enough, I
mean, there are dwarves enough to go around, right?  Besides that, feeding him is
like shoveling food into a bottomless pit, and he has no appreciation for anything
but quantity.  It's enough to make a cook weep. -- Golderie

I wonder if the Kung-Fu Master could be trained to do pizza crusts? -- Clemmie
P.S.  Or bread dough, he could knead it, I bet.

Speckled Gecko -- Well...you seem to be VERY well marinated.  But I still find the
taste a bit oily. -- Pike

The Trustworthy Scribe?  What a joke.  He's Rirorni and barely literate. -- Moldraun

Doc Legrand -- In an arena this small, you don't NEED to challenge us. -- Pike

Moldraun -- Those were not daggers you broke, they were my FINEST quill pens.  I will
thank you to replace them at once!  How else can I work? -- Marngei of Rithakar,
Trustworthy Scribe, an honest working man

Guardian Naga -- I bow to you, Great One, it was an honor of the most boundless
degree. -- anonymous Cult Member

Timber Rattlesnake -- I will not share a small space with such a dangerous creature!
-- Koblek, Visiting Orc

Ivory Iguana -- Bwahahaha! -- more Dangerous than any Criminal you will meet on the
street

Clemmie -- Your vegetables weren't crisp.  A good stir-fry needs exquisite crispness.
-- Enrito of Arkers, Master of Kung-Fu

Golderie -- (burp)  Got any more of those meat pie things? -- Tompot Steelclaw,
Khalhums Dwarf

20 April 2007
All -- I've been...out of circulation for the last couple of months, and my lists
are not up to date.  If you've announced a manager name, a new alliance, or changed
a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via
diplo, or in an e-mail (Sue (at) solberg-mathews (dot) com).  For that matter, if
you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The
Saint, keeper of lists
