                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for REGULAR SEASON, who flew up 11 points in the rankings after mashing 
KARRAGIT SLAVE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it 
doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  GONNIGAN was bested by MARBLE MOUTH and drops 
5 points.  The most challenged warrior this week was CACTUS JACK.  If this keeps up, 
our Duelmaster's going to need more avoids!  Drawing on all of his experience as a 
10-5-1 warrior, BLOGG went for the Duelmastership against CACTUS JACK this week.  In 
front of all the crowds, BLOGG took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the 
bum two weeks.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Did you hear that DARQUE FORCES II was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing 
the personal hygiene of DARQUE FORCES II's warriors, I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I 
may not be funny, but catch OPEN SESAME's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to 
be fairly deft at running from DARQUE FORCES II.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  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?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been fun, and 
I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you worked up for Snide Clemens, 
I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster
