                                      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 2-3-0 outing, MIDDLE WAY 
6 has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  It looks like the guys(?) at DRUID'S GROVE 
had a good week as they went 3-1-1 to put them in 4th place.  I guess steroids help!  
Hey everybody, watch out for MAILEA, who flew up 11 points in the rankings after 
mashing ADRIANNE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya know, some days it 
doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  ADRIANNE was subdued by MAILEA and drops 7 
points.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was MASTER 
BLASTERS' AZAER, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by YAIWE.  An apple a 
day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the SNOWBOUND arena.  Did you 
hear that OPEN SESAME was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of OPEN SESAME's warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you who like 
math, try this one:  OPEN SESAME + Weapons That go Boom = DARQUE FORCES II + Avoid 
City.  And who is this ROXANNE DE'MORRE you ask, with 95 points and a 19-15-0 record. 
Ooh, the tales I could tell!  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, KAYE went 
after ROXANNE DE'MORRE, who was higher by 23 points.  Well, when the dust settled, 
KAYE lost to ROXANNE DE'MORRE.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes 
and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the SNOWBOUND giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya 
bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

In response to the Desolate Empire's declaration of war, the Vendetta Cartel offers
the following response:

The members of the Vendetta Cartel can be found in 1, 8, 9, 10,  11, 14, 22, 25, 28,
31, 39, 45, 47, 50, 52, 54, 59, 60, 100, and 106.  Stop yapping in the all-arena ads,
pick an arena, issue a challenge, actually win something, and then maybe (and we
stress maybe) you may speak.  You may come to our home arenas (8, 31, and 47) and
confront us, but we suggest you learn to win in your own "home" arena (52) first.

11 August 2006
All -- I support Vendetta Cartel's observation of The Dark Knights!  If war is
declared on V.C. by The Dark Knights, then war is also declared on The Dark Knights
of the Desolate Empire by The Avengers of Light!  We have been quietly awaiting such
a chance to expose ourselves (all interested parties contact me c/o The Barbarians:
DM 31, Attn: Timothias)!  Come, Vendetta Cartel, let us show these broke-down
"Knights" what true warriors are! -- Gemini Goldphoenix, Overlord of The Avengers of
Light
