                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  We now have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  
LUROCIAN GUARD now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  Coming up 
with a solid 3-2-1 outing, CAESAR'S THUGS has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  
Advancing in the rankings was LUROCIAN GUARD who went from last turn's 12-8-2, to 
this week's record of 16-9-2.  Hey everybody, watch out for TED ICKENS, who flew up 
21 points in the rankings after mashing COMMODUS like a melon.  Keep your eye on this 
guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  SEXTUS was beat by 
LARS and drops 14 points.  In front of all the crowds, MISERY took the Duelmaster's 
crown for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  Advice to bashers--never force 
anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the ARVAT arena.  Did you 
hear that CALL THE PRIEST was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of CALL THE PRIEST's warriors, I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may 
not be funny, but catch CAESAR'S THUGS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be 
fairly deft at running from CALL THE PRIEST.  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were 
votes, HERON would be president.  Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to 
win.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  TERROR says to his dog--'Who should I fight 
this week?'.  Dog says 'STONE GOLEM'.  So the guy dies.  Moral?  Put lying dogs to 
sleep.  Yes, and another newbie bites the dust as DEATH ROW goes down under the sword 
of CYRUS.  Thanks to this, CYRUS now has 40 recognition points.  Congrats to GELEN 
for revenging the death of his teammate (but more importantly, feeding ISA a bit of 
dirt).  In the 'Oops, What Have I Done?' category, SAPHRONICUS was mashed by JERRY 
HAHN, who let SAPHRONICUS know that killing members of DEVIL ADVOCATES is a no-no.  
Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh? 
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in ARVAT have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it 
hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Sentinel -- Welcome back!!  I think I owe you a few losses for a death you laid on me
a few months back.... -- D. Noble

Arvat -- The buzz is growing--can you feel it?  The crowd is back to throwing fish
and rotten tomatoes versus just sitting idly by in the stands!!! -- D. Noble

Rillion -- Don't jinx it!  Just be happy they are fighting at all!!  If you pressure
them into actually writing something it will likely break their spirit and they will
flee! -- D. Noble (League Arcane Minister of Esprit de Corps)

Caesar -- Two for you, one for me last turn--well done! -- D. Noble

United -- Huh.  I wish I'd been matched with your twin, Divided, instead.  'Cause
divided you fall, right?  Not to put too fine a point on it, el hecko here.  I
could've gone all day without that loss.  Of course, not if the day in question was a
fight day, I probably couldn't've, then.  Oh, well, I'm alive, and that's the big
thing. -- Loggerhead
P.S.  Neither of us learned a thing?  Darn.  El Hecko some more.  I'm not renowned
for my brains, but what's your excuse?

Gelen -- (startled look)  I'm...yours?  (becoming interested, nay, even eager)
Really?  Wow, that is so cool!  What shall we do first? -- Sarlow

Gelen -- Well, Sarlow's an elf, and they're always weird, including, er, "that" way.
But we'd appreciate if you didn't just kill him out of hand.  He does our cooking at
the guildhouse, and he's darned good at it. -- Heron
P.S.  By which I mean to say, he'd be hard to replace.  But you can just ignore him
otherwise, can't you?

Lorie -- (tipping his head way back to look her in the eye)  Wow, magnificent!
You're one of these dominatrix types?  I noticed how interested you were in my body.
(with perhaps pardonable pride)  It's a good one.  Come get it, pussycat! -- Fishgiz

Larry -- well, pickle my peppers!  Not bad.  Hmm, they tell me that learning well is
good, so teach me more!  I lust for skills.  Bring them to me. -- Peter Piquin

The Greek Guy -- It happens.  Some people just can't restrain their passion for
peppers. -- Jorja, Fisherman's Wharf

Ed. -- It was?  Oh.  Well, that's a problem, all right. -- Fishgiz

Gelen -- I'm working on it.  Give me another year or so, and I'll be WORSE. -- Heron
P.S.  Sooner or later, standing around with your toes buried in cold mud gets to
everyone.

Sextus -- I SAID, stop killing my standbys!  Do you think I can just turn over a rock
and find a new Mordant Deserter? -- Arenamistress Sugar

Okay I am doing this last minute as I totally forgot to do my ads.  So to those I
killed in my alliance, sorry about that, to those I beat HAHA and to those that beat
me, I'll get you next time. -- TGG

All -- Let's keep plugging for this arena; it seems to be working as we are growing
every turn.  I plan to stay for a long time. -- TGG

Caesar -- All hail the return of the Temple of Caesar!

Saphronicus -- You were spared our wrath last turn--this is the turn for vengeance.
-- The Devil Advocates

Demmell -- The Dark One can bad mouth me all he wants.  I just keep winning! -- Ron
Way

D. Noble -- In case you have failed to notice the Roman Legion in your midst, we now
outnumber you 15 to 5.  They are not called Caesar's Thugs without reason.  Be

careful where you tread or you may face the full fury of our Roman onslaught!
Perhaps it is time to revive Notorious?  You may need all the help that you can
muster. -- Caesar

Thunder and lightning tear through the Arvat night...Storm clouds brew over the
city...A sacrificial virgin screams her last breath on the black altar atop the
Temple of Caesar...Caesar's thugs make their way through the streets, clubbing
peasants at will and beating the wretches they encounter...The diminutive frame of
the High Priest, Trebonius the Magnificent, can be seen against a backdrop of
lightning...He stands aloft, by the Eternal Flame, atop the mighty Temple of
Caesar....

Cowards die many times before their deaths; the valiant never taste of death but
once.  Of all the wonders that I yet have heard, it seems to me most strange that men
should fear; seeing that death, a necessary end, will come when it will come.

Beware!  Caesar's killers walk the streets of Arvat!

It is the Will of Caesar!  Caesar has Spoken!

14 September 2006
     I am back in the arena and thinking back to those days in 1984 where I was a
novice and clueless manager.
     Now, 22 years later it looks like I am an ancient and once again clueless
manager.
     I am looking to recover some old warriors.  Since none of them are Aimed Blows,
they are no threat to win anything.  I just want to see how they turned out.

It is obvious that the Dark Knights wish to be shown the light.  Allow me to step
forward and blind them with truth.  YOU ARE WORTHLESS!!!  The Dark Knights are so
afraid of the light that they hide behind their black armor and empty threats.  It is
too bad they are unwilling to actually FIGHT us!  I guess our natural light is too
bright for you all to face!  Fear us, for we are here! -- Gemini Goldphoenix,
Overlord of the Avengers of Light!
