                                      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!.  Coming up with a solid 4-1-0 outing, STREET 
WALKERS has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for 
SVAMPBOB, who flew up 23 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.  NIMNOLE lost to KERRIGAN and drops 11 points.  In front of all the crowds, 
MINI DRIVER took the Duelmaster's crown for hers own.  I give the bum two weeks.  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 STREET WALKERS, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does STORMCROWE really have that 
many liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch DARQUE FORCES' act in the arena.  
Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from STREET WALKERS.  And who is 
this NIMNOLE you ask, with 35 points and a 3-7-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could 
tell!  Well, it looks like PINGU wasn't happy with last turn's rank, so he went for 
broke by challenging up 50 points.  No guts, no glory.  This week PINGU 7-6-0 fought 
CELESTIAL ROSE 14-1-1 and in losing gained 1 points.  I know several gladiators who 
could go for a few fights like that.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Yesterday I talked to the NORTHERN LIGHTS' manager and 
SAPPHIRA, slayer of IAPERE.  The manager:  'I think I can, I think I can'.  SAPPHIRA: 
'I already did'.  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.  
Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in STORMCROWE have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Okay, so I may not be the 
world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been 
real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Two awards for being the only unchartered team?  We'll take it! -- Shewish Buffet

Stormcrowe -- It's been a while but it looks like the Street Walkers have found their
way back to the sands.  While we remember a few of you, we look forward to crossing
blades with all.  -- Roadkill

Roselyn -- I'm not sure I was "savagely defeated" but I was defeated, kudos to you.
Maybe we should try that dance again, as long as the wife doesn't get mad. -- Mr.
Beefy

Sapphira -- That was a pleasant surprise, well, at least for me it was. -- Mr. Beefy

Winter Queen -- Not exactly what I'd call a warm welcoming to the arena. -- Mrs.
Beefy

Veteran Mercenary -- It's been over a year and you haven't changed a bit. -- Josie
Walls and Mini Driver

Wow, we advanced from third place to third place!  This is amazing. -- Jorja and the
Northern Lights

Sapphira -- Has anyone slipped Dark Root into your daily diet?  That could account
for a sudden rush of violence and bloodlust.  I've seen it in other arenas.  Nasty
stuff, Dark Root. -- Jorja

Phantasm -- Good that you came back.  Stormcrowe is generally a good place, but
there's no one to talk to! -- Jorja and the Northern Lights

Raynor -- Depends on where you want to lead me! -- Aurora Marie

Fiametta -- Practice!  Avoid the temptations of Dark Root, which people SAY will
bring victory.  Maybe in the short run, but long term, it is disaster for everyone.
-- The Winter Queen

Aisha Clanclan -- Yeah, Jorja tends to feel that way, too.  "What's the good of high-
end potential," she says, "if you die before you get there?"  I have to admit she has
a point, and I'm glad of it. -- Seal Dancer

Kejsaren -- Good beginning, but once I got my breath back (I wasn't paying enough
attention at the beginning, I guess), well, that was, as the saying goes, "all she
wrote."  But I wouldn't really have ripped your face off; what would I do with your
face? -- Aurora Marie

Kerrigan -- Drat.  How do you get your hair to curl that way?  The effect is
devastating, all right, and I am deeply envious. -- Glitrina

I would've had the Fratsfa Slave for breakfast, but the arenamaster stopped me.  Too
bad, I was really hungry! -- White Bear
P.S.  But he was probably too greasy and might have given me indigestion.

Mrs. Beefy -- That's an... interesting figure you have there. -- The Winter Queen

Arvati Can Carne -- Not bad, but you could leave out the cumin.  I've never cared for
it much. -- Seal Dancer
