                                      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!.  Say good-bye to OBSIDIAN HALL, as they are 
pushed from the coveted top team spot by the XXX BANDITS stable.  Coming up with a 
solid 3-1-1 outing, WILLIAMSBURG MALITIA has advanced 4 places in the rankings.  It 
looks like the guys(?) at XXX BANDITS had a good week as they went 4-1-0 to put them 
in 1st place.  I guess steroids help!  Hey everybody, watch out for DEADSMELL, who 
flew up 15 points in the rankings after mashing PERSISTENT BEGGAR like a melon.  Keep 
your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  
ZYRO was overcame by IMMORAL DESIRE and drops 10 points.  It's a proud day for the 
OBSIDIAN HALL stable, as their warrior, BRUNHYLDA, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  
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!  
Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad BIG LAKE  BANDITS?  Big bad BIG 
LAKE BANDITS.  Big bad BIG LAKE BANDITS.  NIATOLI ISLAND's afraid of the big bad BIG 
LAKE BANDITS.  Tra la la la la!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your 
rasberries, cause OBSIDIAN HALL beats feet every time BIG LAKE BANDITS smiles at 
them.  Try farming, eh?  Well just about everybody wants a piece of SPICOLI, who was 
this week's most challenged warrior.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  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 NIATOLI ISLAND 
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

Padre -- Unless you are going to make "adjustments" that raise your IQ by 50pts or
so, I don't think anyone has much to worry about. -- Bill

Padre -- After your mother finishes her garbage route, tell her to stop by and pick
up her teeth.  She forgot them on my night stand. -- Bill

Philthy Phil -- Welcome back!  I am certain you were utterly enraged to see the
Apostles had the audacity to break the 40 percentile in your absence.  It is a
disturbing developement indeed.  Therefore, it is your first and foremost objective
to pound them back into the 30 percentile.  This should be an easy task.  Also, as
always, let us celebrate your return properly with a kill of one of Crambus's
warriors. -- Chief Justice, AA

Spicoli -- We both suck, you especially so.  I call you out: turn 741, naked hatchet
match, KDs at 10. -- Hostile Hobo

Careless Bears and Bikini Barbarians -- Beat it, you're outta here. -- Chief Justice
AA

Den -- Where is the true General? --Bill

Den -- Thanks, I think.  This place seems like the same as 7 years ago... scum and
villainy.  Well, maybe not so much villany, but definately plenty of scum.
Hopefully, the roll-up gods give me something to work with, in the next couple of
turns, so I can go back to being a pain in the Apostle arse! -- Phil

Padre -- You'll find plenty of people here who love to run their mouths.  We call
them the AA. -- Spirit

General Bashur -- When did you walk in? -- Spirit

Byl Bonelicker -- The Throne was yours to lose and lose it you did. -- Spirit

Denny -- Spoken words never elude me, I just prefer to think before I speak.  You
should try it sometime. -- Spirit

Filthy Phil -- I'm sure my Isle has a bath house, you should visit it.  Then you will
only be know as Phil. -- Spirit

Brunhylda -- I think you enjoyed that too much. -- Vixen

Spicoli -- Do you put poison on your blades? -- Spirit

Coach -- Nice cowardly exit, taking some pot shots as you sit everyone on the bench!
What a winner you are! -- The General

Padre / Den -- Yes, I sit out guys in Bloodfeuds.  Not only is it good solid
strategy, it infuriates your opponents!  Such joy, watching even silent managers come
out of their shell in frustration.  Feel free to make me eat my 'diarrhea words.'  So
far, if it weren't for your team, mine would have a losing record. -- General Bashur
P.S.  Please do kill my guys.  A couple of them well deserve to be put out of their
misery
P.P.S.  And you don't earn a title of General with honor.  Honor more often gets you
the title of Martyr, if a title at all.

"Studcraft whelp manager of the XXX Bandits"?!?!  The images that title invokes are
just wrong. -- G. Bashur

Spirit -- So not only do you have a career 46.5% win/loss, but you admit to cheating
the system in order to achieve it?  WOW... -- Bashur

I will add my name and support to get the arena correctly named.  I also have to
agree with Den in another renaming. -- Bashur

Dameon Darkfart -- Unimpressive?!?  That is what I thought of your words last turn.
That is what the girls say behind your back.  That is what I expect from your tourney
performance over the next year.  If you're going to insult me, put a little effort in
it.  It isn't like telling warriors to go out and swing harder and faster takes that
much of your precious time.  You should have plenty of time to insult me.  Or maybe I
need to start wearing neon colors to help you. -- G. Bashur 

Paladin -- Great fights and you won them both!  Well done. -- G. Bashur

You Niatoli cretins just stay out of our way.  It stinks on this island and we don't
want to be here any longer than we have to! -- Magi Rubri, Magus Majestatis

Byl -- Really?  You had the title all sewed up.  All you had to do was win and it was
all yours!  I guess it really was too much to ask.  You're an embarrassment to our
style.  Maybe I should take care of that best of five this turn! -- Bleak

Hustler -- Ya perv! -- Brunhylda

Bashur -- I prefer that you not find yourself in my presence in any case.  If you are
becoming bored might I suggest challenging Padre?  He seems to take great offense
when his warriors heads are caved in and by the looks of things, that is quite easy
to do!  Everyone loves crushing melons! -- DD

Padre -- Your announced strategy, challenging Den at every turn, might be the only
thing that can improve your lot in this arena. -- DD

Coach -- Thanks for playing in my home of Niytyole, glad we hosted your 1000th
graduate.  Appreciate the kind words on the spotlight.  See you on the sands
elsewhere. -- Den
P.S.  That is my "nice" mulligan, I shall never be nice to you again.

Padre -- You put the "imple" in "Simple", please challenge often as I directed you
already.  From what I see there is not much to worry about.  Once I am done teaching
the whelp manager Studcraft lessons that can only be learned through strength and
discipline I will take note of your garbage you consider warriors. -- Den

Coward Bashur -- If you take titles that you have been granted instead of earned,
then call yourself "coward" from this point forward.  Only the lowest of the low act
as you, turn 737 you killed a garbage pile from 4 Pros, and then hold your warrior
out of combat to elude the pending bloodfued.  Which is not only a cowardly pathetic
act by a loser like you, but albeit stupid.  You walked away from 4 certain wins as
Padre knows nothing about managing a team.  I would have my warrior sprinting to the
arena in recognition of the pending wins and possible additional kills.  So, in
retrospect I guess you could be called "Coward Bashur", or "Dumbass Bashur", or
"Pathetic Bashur", or "Smelly Bashur", or "Bestiality Bashur", or "Stain on Society
Bashur", or "Bad Breath Bashur". -- Den, High Priest of the Allied Axis

Deviant Monk -- Does that mean you are not fighting for a while? -- Den

Bleak -- Don't think that rubber match is happening, I have to kill a slasher to
teach the whelp manager Studcraft a valuable lesson, then I get to become immortal
and travel to the other Island.  If by some miracle you actually get out of here
without being killed by my mighty alliance, look me up, and I will knock you down yet
again. -- Byl Bonesnapper

Studcraft -- Hodar! -- Hodar

Darkfart -- Trust me, once the commission yanks your crud and sends it our way they
are already improved.  Just being within the AA gives a warrior a certain swagger and
feeling of accomplishment.  Whereupon being stuck inside the Inner Circle takes away
a warrior's will to succeed or do great things, or to bend over without fear. -- Den

Spirit -- Nice to see that your home-help nurse is helping you write personal ads
again in spite of your constant drooling and pants wetting.  And if you are actually
listening to the ranting of Deeders then I must question your already lowly assumed
intellect level.  Listening to Deeders is like going to war with the French. -- Den

Inner Circle -- You dorks considering the winter F2F?  We are working out the
logistics. If so, can we put the room on your credit card? -- Den

Crambus -- Well, look at you and your little wins last turn.  Congrats Court Jester.
-- Den

Editor -- If my memory serves me well, which it usually does, the change of my
beloved arena from "Niytyole Island" to "Niatoli Island" had something to do with a
sickness called Hammer.  He was a known pervert and zealot and a stain upon all
Alastari.  Anything to do with him and his ways should be erased beyond all
recognition so that he will be forgotten and his name only spoken in stories to scare
the children.  Do the right thing, pressure the Commission to correct this egregious
wrong, and the Inner Circle promises foot rubs to you and yours. -- Den, High Priest
of the Allied Axis

     Sorry, but I don't recall Hammer being involved in the name change.  If you
     want to pressure the Commission, I have no problem with it. -- Editor
