                                      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 THE FALLEN, as they are pushed 
from the coveted top team spot by the PORTAL stable.  Coming up with a solid 3-2-0 
outing, AARDVARK HAMMERZ has advanced 9 places in the rankings.  ERRATA is no joke as 
it posted a 4-0-0 week advancing from 10th place to 2nd place.  Hey everybody, watch 
out for RAZIEL, who flew up 23 points in the rankings after mashing SALLY like a 
melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  CLOVER got through to the Duelmaster this turn.  
No doubt he was more than anxious to kick NIKITA's tail out of the throne!  It's a 
proud day for the ERRATA stable, as their warrior, CLOVER, ascended the Duelmaster's 
throne.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the JHANS arena.  And hey, 
kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid ACT OF MALICE, please raise you hand.  Wow.  
Does JHANS really have that many liars?  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling 
your rasberries, cause AARDVARK HAMMERZ beats feet every time ACT OF MALICE smiles at 
them.  Try farming, eh?  Well just about everybody wants a piece of CLOVER, who was 
this week's most challenged warrior.  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, 
CHRISTMAS TREE went after RODNEY, who was higher by 19 points.  Well, when the dust 
settled, CHRISTMAS TREE was dealt death by RODNEY.  KALISTA J'NAE of SUICIDAL DREAMS 
had better have a good reason for challenging down 12 points in a challenge which she 
lost.  I thought KALISTA J'NAE showed great skill and promise when she was beat by 
PALADIN.  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!  Yes, and another newbie bites 
the dust as CHRISTMAS TREE goes down under the sword of RODNEY.  Thanks to this, 
RODNEY now has 66 recognition points.  Well, the arena is no place for slow learners 
(and hopefully T.P.s) and RAZIEL demonstrated that very violently on SALLY's body.  
On a sad note, SALLY found an early retirement at the hands of RAZIEL this week.  I 
wonder what SCARRY TEAM will be doing about it?  Remember:  alliances are great, but 
try and take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in JHANS have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  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

Hammer -- Welcome back to the kLk homeland, my brother.  It's good to have the klk
weaponsmith/wordsmith back. -- Azrael

Whew, what massive personals last turn.  Gonna try to find time to start writing them
again. -- Azrael

Jhans -- Still number one team and I didn't even run.  I can't miss another turn. --
Azrael

Jhans -- Just a few more turns before the Massacre starts again, let's get the $#!t
talking going again.  Like this....

DOOMjoke, go kiss a mule's end, you sons of a spavined goat!!!!! -- Azrael, Lord of
the Fallen, Lord High Commander, kLk Alliance, Illuminati Confederation of Alliances

Nemesis -- Nice turn, bro!  3-1-1. -- Az

House of Cain Stable -- Congrats on succeeding all four turns of your bloodfeud.
Honor is restored to your stable and all are hailing you at Lucas Lounge tonight.
Our stable hopes to fight you on better terms next time, which might result in a win
for our stable without a kill...or then again, killing isn't all that bad.  It's
those four losses that are hard to avoid after the kill.  Sword and decanter high! --
JGW, manager of Abstract

Ed. the Scribe -- Sure, make jabs because no one spoke last turn.  Some of us had
more important things to do, like fight with family and in-laws.  And it could have
been a perfect turn for you to list the managers/stables list that you promised me
TURNS AGO.  ;)  Maybe you could find it in that small, stone colored heart of yours
to actually do what you said this turn?  Preeeety please?  (Had to turn on the charm
after insulting you like that.) -- JGW

     Gosh, when you ask so nicely....  Sorry I didn't get to it sooner.  It just
     totally slipped my mind (such as it is).  This is teams listed in last turn's
     newsletter.  If I've gotten anyone's name wrong, I hope someone will let me
     know. -- The Saint, keeper of lists

Vorenus -- OUCH I say.  OUCH! -- Silver Pearl

Jekyll and Deft Cleve -- Congratulations on bringing a tournament champion title to
Jhans.  We will stand proud with the title coming to our great city, but be aiming
for the kill whenever we see him our way! -- JGW, who knows a few TC challenges are
coming my way soon

Shar -- Nice challenge to Ditch.  I wish you had killed him off and saved me the DA
in a few turns. -- JGW

Dark Sky -- Nice downchallenge.  Let's see if I can do the same now. -- JGW

Two Feathers -- I'd say you finished the fight, as you prayed to do.  You even got on
your knees to make the prayer sincere! -- Christmas Tree

Lady Slice Hammer -- Good fight.  Next time, try to succeed in your attacks.  After
all, you can't beat anyone if you don't hit them. -- Skunk

City of Jhans -- Let's get some life in this arena.  This place is the pits during
the holidays! -- JGW, who is guilty of the same crime that happened during the
holidays

!ll.kid.k -- What, you're ducking a bloodfeud with Lady Hackenslash?  Man, I thought
you had more scruples than that!  C'mon, let me have her before the BF is over. --
JGW and the Abstract guild
