                                      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!.  Say good-bye to COLOR ME SUAVE, as they are 
pushed from the coveted top team spot by the INTELLECTS OF HIPHOP stable.  Ya know, 
some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  SLASH was overcame by TRUGOY THE 
DOVE and drops 11 points.  The most challenged warrior this week was ARMORED ECHO.  
If this keeps up, our Duelmaster's going to need more avoids!  Well, everybody's pal 
ARMORED ECHO moved his record to 29-12-0 by defeating RHINO in the Duelmaster's Title 
Bout and gaining 7 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.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid SHREDDERS, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does RODEKI really have that many 
liars?  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause COLOR ME 
SUAVE beats feet every time SHREDDERS smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  In a 
touching display by a 'touched' warrior, SEAFOOD RISOTTO went after BUTTERLIPS, who 
was higher by 18 points.  Well, when the dust settled, SEAFOOD RISOTTO slew 
BUTTERLIPS.  MONDAY NITE FOOTBALL of COLOR ME SUAVE had better have a good reason for 
challenging down 14 points in a challenge which it won.  I thought MONDAY NITE 
FOOTBALL showed great skill and promise when it defeated SWIRLING MASS.  All right, 
so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  I have no doubt that VENETIAN 
CINQUE will be celebrating long and loud their warrior SEAFOOD RISOTTO's slaying of 
BUTTERLIPS on the sands.  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 RODEKI giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), 
oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Now, Isengalen, it was your turn to win.  You didn't live up to your end of the
bargain in our little "deal." -- Gaven Adler

Butterlips -- Hrmmph.  Suave must be feeding you something other than butter.  I
wonder if the Commission will ever get around to random doping testing. -- Rima Adler

     No, probably not.  Every time we think we've got a magician who can do it, he
     sells out to the oppo-- ah, to the managers. -- Torba Val, Head of Staff for
     Rodeki arena

The Edge -- Well, then... couldn't you have missed a few more cycles? -- Detra Vaughn

Cougar -- The cougars I'm used to fighting off are usually of the female persuasion.
Obviously, I was a bit confused and surprised when I realized that you, indeed, were
not a woman.  I'm sure that had something to do with my poor showing... being
dumbfounded and what not. -- Swirling Mass

Izzy -- I wish you were a hippo.  Might have changed the results a bit. -- Hippo
Huntress

Harby -- I tend to find Jorja a tad overbearing.  I prefer to deal with the working
class and what not, so I'll continue to direct my correspondence to you. -- Flagg

Rhino -- Did someone leave their backup weapon at home?  -- Armored Echo

Rima -- Sadly, my talentless stablemate has decided to occupy the throne, and AE
won't be leaving anytime from skills. -- Lips

Harby -- Thanks for the congrats.  Suave said I get to retire for a while, which
doesn't sound like true retirement.  What am I, some kind of one-hit wonder band? --
WTHIS

Hippo Huntress -- It's hard, for sure.  But I know a place outside town where the ale
is much better.  I think they import it from somewhere, going by the price, but hey,
so what? -- Jurgenhalen

Kool Moe Dee -- Ick. -- Karligrena

Gaven Adler -- This isn't the way I saw our relationship working out. -- Isengalen

It says here that "COMMON SENSE overpowered ELIFAS KENT."  Easy to do. -- Harby

Mongoose -- Does that imply that *I* am a snake?  I assure you, it is not so. --
Jurgenhalen

Slash -- Do you know how much those garters COST? -- Igrina Sockinette
