                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for KIRVINJ, who flew up 17 points in the 
rankings after mashing ALVERNON STRONGAXE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  
And falling like a basher in the top ten was ALVERNON STRONGAXE, who dropped 10 
points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with KIRVINJ.  In front of all 
the crowds, BAIBAR took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two 
weeks.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  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.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real 
fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Alvernon Strongaxe -- It wasn't an intentional match, but I guess it counts as a
bloodfeud.  Works for me if it works for you.  After all, it wasn't an intentional
kill, either. -- Baibar

And four wins against standbys.  It isn't that we have anything against winning, but
this is so... hollow. -- the rest of the Family
