                                      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 MARGANAD, who flew 
up 16 points in the rankings after mashing DANGEROUS CRIMINAL like a melon.  Keep 
your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was WINDSONG, who 
dropped 4 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with MANNY LEHMAN.  
Well, everybody's pal WHO moved his record to 22-15-0 by defeating JUBHAL in the 
Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 8 recognition points.  4 out of 5 gladiators 
surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the TRICORUS arena.  Did you 
hear that SERPENTS HOLD 2 was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of SERPENTS HOLD 2's warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like 
to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause PANSY DIVISION beats feet every time 
SERPENTS HOLD 2 smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?   
     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, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in TRICORUS 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

Tack Tack -- Aw, why'd you have to go and kill Rusty?  Was it the annoying voice?  Or
maybe you're in league with the Monarch?  Anyway, he was 15-6-11-21-9-11-11 ST and
never even got to try the Greatsword.  Unfortunately, you're going to have to wait
until after the tourney for the bloodfeud. -- Team Venture

Windsong -- Yeah, I hate it when that happens. -- Sgt Hatred

GC -- Once again, I tied with myself, so neither one got the Unchartered Recognition
Leader award.  Couldn't they at least get 1/2 credit each or something, for one free
fight?  (Not that I'm fighting them again until the tourney anyway, but it's the
principle.) -- Team Venture

     The Commission is notoriously unfeeling.

Answer of the week:  No more than half a cup.

Who -- Me?  At least I lasted three minutes. -- Jubhal

Manny Lehman -- Drat.  I was totally LED ASTRAY by your lavender surcoat with the
little bitty flowers on it. -- Marganad

Ambitious Guard, Fratsfa Slave, Convicted Thief... easy meat.  Figuratively speaking,
we Rirorni don't eat even people like them. -- Windsong and Before Sunrise, plus non-
Rirorni Galdor O'Hare
