                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
STORMCROWE.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  
NORTHERN LIGHTS is no joke as it posted a 4-1-0 week advancing from 3rd place to 3rd 
place.  Hey everybody, watch out for SHIVOR, who flew up 33 points in the rankings 
after mashing CHIP like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it 
doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  SAPPHIRA lost to SLAMBO and drops 37 points.  
Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was STREET WALKERS' 
MR BEEFY, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by ROSELYN.  An apple a day 
keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad OF WOLF &  MAN 4?  Big bad OF 
WOLF & MAN 4.  Big bad OF WOLF & MAN 4.  STORMCROWE's afraid of the big bad OF WOLF & 
MAN 4.  Tra la la la la!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your 
rasberries, cause MIKES HEROES beats feet every time OF WOLF & MAN 4 smiles at them.  
Try farming, eh?  And who is this SVAMPBOB you ask, with 58 points and a 7-1-0 
record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, 
RAYNOR went after SVAMPBOB, who was higher by 20 points.  Well, when the dust 
settled, RAYNOR was bested by SVAMPBOB.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your ally 
in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     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

Svampbob -- Nice challenge!  I would like to think that you have some hidden FE.  I
would like it because it would help my ego. -- Benezia

Khalums Dwarf -- We keep running into one another like this!  Have budget cuts hit
the arena standby warriors as well?  Is there no one else to fight? -- Roselyn

Khalums Dwarf -- What Roselyn said! -- Andromeda

Venomous Concubine -- Budgets, warriors, see a lot of each other, blah, blah. --
Celestial Rose and Sapphira

Ghosts of Iapere and Avalanche -- My sincerest apologies!  I do not know what has
come over me these last few turns.  I haven't changed anything by way of training and
my strategy on the sands.  My manager has given me an ear-full over the past few
cycles, reminding me of what good teachers your guild typically is to ours.  It
probably does little to console you, but do know my chores have been tripled and my
training regimen doubled as punishment for your deaths. -- Sapphira

All -- Even though Darque keeps getting credit for all of my hard work, I still
wanted to take the time to introduce myself.  My name is Phantasm and I manage Knight
Breed.  We haven't been active in Stormcrowe for a very long time; however, this
little island is home. -- Phantasm and the Knight Breed stable

Aurora Marie -- Ah, my darling!  I shall have to ask for another space on your dance
card later.  But please, let me lead next time. -- Raynor

Storabollen -- Not an outcome I like, but I can't fault you for the challenge. --
Kerrigan

The Winter Queen -- I am already walking on a ledge in regards to my career, and if I
have anymore fights like ours, I'm afraid my dueling career will be tragically short.
-- Fiametta

Seal Dancer -- Style advantage was certainly mine in the first fight of both our
careers, but we shall see who will be more productive in the long run.  Which in my
manager's mind, living is the ultimate sign of productivity. -- Aisha Clanclan

Persistent Beggar -- It took a few minutes, but much less painful than your daily
pan-handling cries in front of the arena. -- Starwind

Pingu -- If you think that makes you MY hero, you can think again.  I can't stand
grue, it's so hard to get it off my fur. -- White Bear

Raynor -- That went rather well, don't you think?  It isn't every orc who can lose
with grace. -- Aurora Marie

Kejsaren -- Ouch. -- Glitrina

Fiametta -- You look more like a night than a knight.  Dark and mysterious and all.
If I were a guy, it would probably attract me.  Good thing I'm not! -- The Winter
Queen

Aisha Clanclan -- Well... I suppose I could claim I was being shiverous.  It was
certainly cold enough!  Good fight, I guess.  Definitely something to think about.
Along the lines of, "Why did I sign that contract, anyway?" -- Seal Dancer
