                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Say good-bye 
to SHREDDERS, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the COLOR ME SUAVE 
stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for COMMON SENSE, who flew up 15 points in the 
rankings after mashing KWS like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some 
days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  KWS was bested by COMMON SENSE and 
drops 12 points.  The most challenged warrior this week was JELLO KNUCKLES.  If this 
keeps up, our Duelmaster's going to need more avoids!  SRV got through to the 
Duelmaster this turn.  No doubt he was more than anxious to kick JELLO KNUCKLES' tail 
out of the throne!  Well, everybody's pal JELLO KNUCKLES moved his record to 28-6-0 
by defeating SRV in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 7 recognition points.  
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 RODEKI arena.  And hey, 
kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid COLOR ME SUAVE, please raise you hand.  Wow.  
Does RODEKI really have that many liars?  For those of you who like math, try this 
one:  COLOR ME SUAVE + Weapons That go Boom = SHREDDERS + Avoid City.  Challenging 
down 16 points was TRUGOY THE DOVE.  Pretty soon he'll be using two shields and 
selling 'T.P.:  The only way to clean up' pins.  Definition of petty:  TRUGOY THE 
DOVE bested OINK THE COW, a mismatch of 16 points.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Here's some advice:  warriors with little 
wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     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 
real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Srv -- I'm still not sure how to pronounce your name, but what the heck.  You want
skills, I got 'em to teach. -- Gastaigne
P.S.  Or maybe "Professor Gastaigne."

Spork! -- A useless tool (why doesn't Crip run you?), but nasty on the sands. --
Fellerman

Why Do You Ask Me -- Because you're handy?  Like, who ELSE am I going to ask? -- Igor
Jones
P.S.  Yeahyeahyeah, I get it that you don't know, but what's the good of wanting to
ask someone who DOES if they aren't HERE?  I mean, there's a guy in North Fork who's
supposed to have the answer, but he's in NORTH FORK.  Even if I yelled, he couldn't
hear me.
P.P.S.  So maybe you should, you know, work on learning the answer?

Armored Echo -- I had to stop you, the noise was horrible. -- Elifas Kong

Montrose -- Somehow I knew it would come out like that.  Ouch! -- Isengalen
