                                      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 CAER SALAD, who flew up 32 points in the 
rankings after mashing RIKKU like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some 
days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  PULLED ORC was subdued by THE WINTER 
QUEEN and drops 3 points.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody 
knuckles was NORTHERN LIGHTS' ERMINE, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by 
ROSELYN.  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!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  This round goes to SHEWISH 
BUFFET, their 8-2-2 warrior, CAER SALAD slew the 9-3-0 RIKKU.  Stay tuned next week 
to see what happens.  We might as well mark the passing of ANTIGONE, who was 
relatively new to the arena at 4-3-0.  Probably killed before hers first shave.  
Solution for urban overcrowding:  CAER SALAD slew RIKKU.  Ask not the elves for 
counsel, for they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the STORMCROWE 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.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown 
Spymaster

Lapur Bisque -- I guess you're a keeper! -- One Armed Bandit

The Winter Queen -- We should stop meeting like this.  Please? -- Pulled Orc

One-four?  What kind of showing is that?  I can understand, I suppose, the loss to
Caer Salad, the dressing was a little off.  Nearly rancid.  And the lettuce was
wilted.  Sitting too long on the buffet table, I suppose.  As for the Pulled Orc that
I had....  Listen to this truth:  If you have a lot of sauce on your meat, it's
probably a sign that you're hiding something!  A properly roasted cut of meat should
be able to stand on its own, with just a little appropriate seasoning--salt, of
course, maybe some pepper.  Not this... tomato stuff.  Bleh. -- The Winter Queen,
connoisseur of barbecue
