                                      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.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for DANIEL SILVERLOCK, who flew up 19 points in the rankings after mashing 
STEEL SPAR like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't 
pay to walk out on the sands.  JEREMIAH BROADBLADE was bested by NEKKAR AGIN and 
drops 8 points.  Our last turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to CONVICTED 
ASSASSIN, and XARGOTH has made the way for a new Duelmaster!  With XARGOTH clearing 
the throne, THE BRETHREN of ELDARRAN takes a proud seat as VEASTIAN's new Duelmaster, 
by virtue of recognition points.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a 
bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Can any one out there say 'weasel'?  Oh 
well, just saying ELDARRAN will do.  She challenged 18 points down to trash LIRVENZ.  
Definition of petty:  ELDARRAN subdued LIRVENZ, a mismatch of 18 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.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in VEASTIAN have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

                                     PERSONAL ADS

Eldarran -- Well, darn.  I was hoping that my personal attributes (tall, red-headed,
handsome, charismatic) would be enough to outweigh your experience advantage, but it
seems that was not to be. -- Kenseljo

Felstava -- Ouch, you've got a problem there, sword-sister.  Giving the style
difference, and the way I was running, you should have been able to jump me.  If I
had to guess, it would be that you're wearing too much armor.  Yes, okay, armor keeps
you alive, and you DO have a winning record, but that's still my guess.  In a bigger
arena, you'd probably be in trouble.  Of course, in a bigger arena, *I* would be in
trouble, too.... -- Vaistinie

Marius -- I think you probably should have dropped the shield sooner, like, before
the fight.  It isn't like it did you any good.  And there's a belief current among
managers, I don't know how much support it has, that if your off-hand is free, you
can add it to your grip on your weapon (even a one-handed weapon) and use it with
more force and possibly even a tad more accuracy.  It might be worth a try. --
Lirvenz

Jonas Switchblade -- Your name is too long, your team name is too long, and your
FIGHT was too long.  I didn't care for it at all. -- Nekkar Agin

Kenseljo -- Magnets? -- Steelspar

Vaistinie -- Now THAT was embarrassing.  Oh well.  There's always next time. --
Felstava

Lirvenz -- I'm not sure I know what that "high line" comment meant.  Also, to have
won that fight, you would have had to hit me.  I guess we could give it another go.
-- Eldarran

Jeremiah Broadblade -- That was such an unfair match up.  I salute your courage for
meet me on the sands. -- Steelspar
