                                      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!.  Hey everybody, watch out for RAMBLING OX, who 
flew up 11 points in the rankings after mashing GRUNT 2 like a melon.  Keep your eye 
on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was CHERICILLE, who dropped 7 
points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with REIGN OF BLADES.  What does 
the Duelmaster and Piltdown Man have in common?  They are both the most challenged 
apes in human history!  Heyheyhey!  Well, everybody's pal SWAN moved his record to 
10-5-2 by defeating DEATH'S DOORMAN in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 7 
recognition points.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger 
halberd!   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the KATI-TEI arena.  Did you 
hear that MEDAL OF HONOR 26 was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of MEDAL OF HONOR 26's warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of 
you who like math, try this one:  MEDAL OF HONOR 26 + Weapons That go Boom = THE 
PLAGUE + 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?   
     Well, there's the manager of the KATI-TEI giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  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

Swan -- Well fought... I really did not think I would be in a title fight quite so
soon. -- Reign of Blades

Quinore -- I need that umbrella... I am catching way too much "rain" from Swan. --
Reign of Blades

Leeta -- I have re-learned an old lesson.  An interesting but marginal RU is garbage
when it rolls up poorly.  It could have been fun. -- Reaper

Rambling Ox -- Skills skills skills....  Gotta get some good match ups here. --
Blinded

Leeta -- Frankly, I would rather keep the Dwarf in the Box for a while.  I have too
many warriors in his range.  If he gets an attitude now it will be my @#$@#.... --
Reaper
P.S.  Maybe we let him out of the box once every 100 turns...

Veteran Mercenary -- Pathetic... really pathetic...  I am done with this...  The next
one of you stand-ins that shows up is getting jacked up.  How I am I supposed to
train for a rematch with Swan when you show up and put on a stinker like that?  No
fight, no skills, no kill... -- Death's Doorman

RU Gods....  We the ever so humble beseech thee for a RU.  Shrubberies, impaled RSI
Stand-in warriors and merciless DA sacrifices will be heaped at your feet.  May your
favor shine down on us... -- Reaper
P.S.  A two pack would be nice...I will just keep one for a rainy day...Maybe a 6
pack?  okay... okay... just one....

     Got any of those musk lifesavers? -- RUG #57316

William Crawford -- Ah, the pleasures of the small arena.  Thanks for the skills,
anyway. -- Forandin

What I want to know is, why isn't the Happy Pheasant classed as one of the Birds? --
Chericille

Grunt 2 -- I think you actually grunted three times there. -- Quinore

Cult Members.  Pah. -- Valgard

That Shiftyeyed Volunteer deserved every blow!  EVERY blow. -- Rambling Ox

  the Dark Arena until they are dead.
