                                      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.  ERRATA 
now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  Hey everybody, watch out 
for ROSIE, who flew up 7 points in the rankings after mashing PERSISTENT BEGGAR like 
a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was 
OBSIDIAN, who dropped 3 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with 
BEEZLE.  Well, everybody's pal CLOVER moved his record to 15-14-1 by defeating ENEMY 
SABOTEUR in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 6 recognition points.  An apple a 
day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad KARNIVORZ?  Big bad KARNIVORZ.  Big bad KARNIVORZ.  JHANS' afraid of the big 
bad KARNIVORZ.  Tra la la la la!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your 
rasberries, cause ERRATA beats feet every time KARNIVORZ smiles at them.  Try 
farming, eh?  And who is this DETRALOR you ask, with 29 points and a 4-1-2 record.  
Ooh, the tales I could tell!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  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 JHANS 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.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been 
real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

     The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire want to announce the joining of a new
member who cherishes the same ideals, respect and loyalty that we hold dear.
     From this day forward let all know that Blackstorm is now a Dark Knight of the
Desolate Empire Alliance.  With him as our chosen brother, our alliance only becomes
stronger.  Let all his foes become ours, and ours his.  May all our enemies' blood
flow freely and give NO quarter in war.
     This is also a warning to any cowards, bullies, etc....  If you play with fire,
you WILL get burnt!!!

To those involved, no, I have not abandoned your stories.  But I've been letting them
drift, and that has to stop, so I am taking the time to make sure that I know where
they are going, more than just "what happens next" dreamed up on the fly, before
resuming work on them.  No new stories will be started until at least one of the old
ones has concluded, for the same reason:  quantity can't substitute for quality.
Your patience in this matter is appreciated. -- the Scribe
