      The Kung-Fu Master.  Oh, well, at last I defeated him.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for REAPER, who flew up 13 points in the 
rankings after mashing MORDANT DESERTER like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya 
know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  DISEASE was bested by LON 
CHANEY JR. and drops 3 points.  Our battling duelmaster DELLIS LINZ has managed to 
hold the title, fending off SLICE's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, 
LETHAL LEGION.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and 
take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  See ya 
next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Vera Demilo -- Hey, I'm good, but I just can't handle a dozen of you, not all at
once. -- Selvun

Carl the Tooth -- I did NOT ask you to "bite me" either literally or metaphorically,
and I wish you wouldn't keep trying. -- Chuck Elvis

Pacifist -- It doesn't show. -- Daceana Linz
P.S.  But you do teach well.  I like that.

Convicted Thief?  Gods. -- Bella Deane

This is some kind of "doom knell for the arena," isn't it?  When we of Beyond the
Pale are involved in EVERY fight, and only two of those fights are against managed
warriors? -- Dellis Linz

20 April 2007
All -- I've been...out of circulation for the last couple of months, and my lists
are not up to date.  If you've announced a manager name, a new alliance, or changed
a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via
diplo, or in an e-mail (Sue (at) solberg-mathews (dot) com).  For that matter, if
you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The
Saint, keeper of lists
