                                      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.  
WANDERERS now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for SATURN, who flew up 15 points in the rankings after mashing TRUSTWORTHY 
SCRIBE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay 
to walk out on the sands.  JEHU was beat by PELICAN and drops 4 points.  It's a proud 
day for the BIRDS stable, as their warrior, PELICAN, ascended the Duelmaster's 
throne.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid THE FLINTSTONES, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does KATI-TEI really have that 
many liars?  For those of you who like math, try this one:  THE FLINTSTONES + Weapons 
That go Boom = BIRDS + Avoid City.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Ask not the elves for counsel, 
for they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     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.  Its been 
fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you worked up for Snide 
Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster

15 September 2003
An Announcement Concerning the Brotherhood of the Blade Alliance:
     I have chosen to withdraw my membership from the Brotherhood of the Blade
alliance.  The years I have spent in the alliance have been the best of my DM career.
I leave the alliance with many great friends and will always remain close to my
former brethren.
     The Brotherhood of the Blade will not skip a beat without my membership.  It
remains in very capable hands and its roster is among the strongest in the game.
With the return on some of its founding members to DM, I know the BOB will continue
to grow in strength and prestige in the years to come. -- The Sandman
