                                      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!.  Hey everybody, watch out for MISS DEMEANER, who 
flew up 22 points in the rankings after mashing NOK GORKA like a melon.  Keep your 
eye on this gal.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  NOK 
GORKA was subdued by MISS DEMEANER and drops 16 points.  Well here's a duelmaster 
that doesn't sit back and say 'Challenge me'!  SLAMBO made a Dark Arena Challenge 
against ARENAMASTER NHOR this week.  The crowds were amazed this turn, as ARENAMASTER 
NHOR killed the Duelmaster, SLAMBO, leaving STREET WALKERS in mourning.  This 
incredible death has allowed, I might add, INIGO MONTOYA from MAX'S MIRACLE to ascend 
to the throne of Duelmaster, and I hear DARK ARENA is not happy.  Can you believe 
they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad DARQUE FORCES?  Big bad DARQUE FORCES.  Big bad DARQUE FORCES.  STORMCROWE's 
afraid of the big bad DARQUE FORCES.  Tra la la la la!  Okay, so I may not be funny, 
but catch MAX'S MIRACLE's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at 
running from DARQUE FORCES.  And who is this SNAKE PLISKIN you ask, with 26 points 
and a 5-8-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  In a touching display by a 
'touched' warrior, ANGEL CAKE went after MR BEEFY, who was higher by 22 points.  
Well, when the dust settled, ANGEL CAKE lost to MR BEEFY.  BUTTERCUP of MAX'S MIRACLE 
had better have a good reason for challenging down 15 points in a challenge which she 
won.  I thought BUTTERCUP showed great skill and promise when she overcame TARG THE 
WHIP.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  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?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Hasta la bye-bye. 
(Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

10 Dark Arena deaths, and a Convicted Thief!  When did Stormcrowe become the Arena of
Death?!? -- Miracle Max, locking his doors at night

     Ha!  Locking your doors will do no good, for we can get in EVERYWHERE! -- The
     Mouthpiece of Thieves

Slambo -- We hardly got to know you, and now you're off to the Isle.  Congrats!  And
best wishes. -- Max's Miracle stable

Mr Beefy -- Perhaps you were a little rusty from your long layoff?  We shall have to
meet again. -- In Inigo Montoya

War Maiden -- Well fought.  After a little aerobic conditioning on my part, we shall
meet again. -- MIB

Targ the Whip -- You made one heck of a first impression.  Ultimately, of course,
your true self was revealed.  Keep working on yourself.  You have potential! --
Buttercup, Personality Coach

Eva Destruction -- Not what you expected, right? -- The Albino

Ukko -- "Luckily bested" doesn't do our fight justice.  A little training with a
heavier weapon and I'll be back to avenge my loss. -- The Brute Squad

Or perhaps the ten dead simply reflect managers who are more than a bit jaded and
don't just run whatever the RUGs give them.  Personally, I am opening stables in all
of the regular slow arenas.  I will be running hybrid arena/tourney teams.  But my
arena guys need to have something that attracts me to them.  My dreams of a TC
wouldn't make any roster of most self-respecting managers.  But these are MY DREAMS,
NOT YOURS! -- Assurnasirbanipal

     Possessive, are you?

Miss Demeaner -- Woohoo!  My first win!  I shall cherish each one!  Thank you. -- TC

ELEVEN dead?  We're so perished, we're coming around from the other end.

Inigo Montoya -- What's the point of a rubber match?  It sounds like a useless tool
to me.  I bet it won't light a fire. -- Seal Dancer

The Brute Squad -- My father said something back that involved a lot of gnashing of
ice against rocks and stuff. -- Atali

Our congratulations to Slambo. -- Jorja and the Northern Lights

Three-two, no deaths, one kill, and only one standby (the one who got killed).  We
must be improving. -- Glitrina

Belldandy -- Bah.  Always throwing your weight around. -- Glitrina
P.S.  And you've plenty to throw, too!

Scandal Savage -- Yes, indeed!  Scandalous and savage.  I like that in a woman. --
Seal Dancer

I have no patience for thieves.  Especially one who'd steal a cubic foot of ice and
figure he could run off with it. -- The Iceman

Jealous Jamie -- There was no call for that!  I never even LOOKED at your pathetic
excuse for a date. -- Atali

Trailor Trash -- The only unbelievable thing is that a piece of trash like you blew
into the arena at all.  Littering, that's what it is. -- Frost Giant
