                                      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!.  We now have a new top team for all of you guys 
to dogpile on.  OBSIDIAN HALL now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep 
it.  It looks like the guys(?) at KNIGHTS OF LEGEND had a good week as they went 
4-1-0 to put them in 2nd place.  I guess steroids help!  Hey everybody, watch out for 
BENJYN BLAYDE, who flew up 29 points in the rankings after mashing FUTURE AGE like a 
melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on 
the sands.  BRUNHYLDA was subdued by SMILING DEVIL and drops 9 points.  Well here's a 
duelmaster that doesn't sit back and say 'Challenge me'!  LORTAN FALCONEYE made a 
challenge against KURELLEU ZIEN this week.  It's a proud day for the THE SEWING 
CIRCLE stable, as their warrior, KURELLEU ZIEN, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  
Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that KNIGHTS OF LEGEND was 
most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of KNIGHTS OF 
LEGEND's warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling 
your rasberries, cause OBSIDIAN HALL beats feet every time KNIGHTS OF LEGEND smiles 
at them.  Try farming, eh?  And who is this INIGO MONTOYA you ask, with 27 points and 
a 3-4-1 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  INIGO MONTOYA of BIG LAKE BANDITS had 
better have a good reason for challenging down 8 points in a challenge which it lost. 
I thought INIGO MONTOYA showed great skill and promise when it was subdued by 
PETRONILLA.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  I have no doubt that OBSIDIAN 
HALL will be celebrating long and loud their warrior BENJYN BLAYDE's slaying of 
FUTURE AGE on the sands.  Carrion Bird Frustration:  FUTURE AGE in platemail.  
Congrats to DEN'S FAVORITE for revenging the death of his teammate (but more 
importantly, feeding BYL BONESNAPPER a bit of dirt).  Remember:  alliances are great, 
but try and take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, there's the manager of the NIATOLI ISLAND giving me the 'cut' sign (or is 
that 'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  And remember, you can pick your friends 
and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown 
Spymaster
