                                      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 SUN QIAN, who flew 
up 21 points in the rankings after mashing VELVET ROSE like a melon.  Keep your eye 
on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  VELVET 
ROSE was subdued by SUN QIAN and drops 16 points.  Well here's a duelmaster that 
doesn't sit back and say 'Challenge me'!  SAVAGE SNOWBALL made a Dark Arena Challenge 
against HIGH ELF this week.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody 
knuckles was DARK ARENA's HIGH ELF, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by 
SAVAGE SNOWBALL.  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 JADE WARRIORS?  Big bad JADE WARRIORS.  Big bad JADE WARRIORS.  FRATSFA's 
afraid of the big bad JADE WARRIORS.  Tra la la la la!  For those of you who like 
math, try this one:  JADE WARRIORS + Weapons That go Boom = FLOWER GIRLS + Avoid 
City.  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, CAUSTIC CROCUS would be 
president.  Although it may be a contest she doesn't want to win.  In a mismatch, our 
friend TELESPHORUS of DARQUE AGES got heroic notions and challenged LI KUI.  What did 
it get him?  A 10-10-0 record, that's what.  A Carrion Bird Sellout:  TELESPHORUS 
10-10-0 fights LI KUI 14-8-1.  (BYOB) In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, 
EUSEBIUS went after DORIAN SELAN, who was higher by 20 points.  Well, when the dust 
settled, EUSEBIUS subdued DORIAN SELAN.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  SAVAGE SNOWBALL defied all odds and slew 
HIGH ELF in the Dark Arena.  The only ones displeased were the buzzards, as HIGH 
ELF's meat is notoriously tough.  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and 
will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Urban -- I'm glad you let me use the big weapon.  Wasn't that fun and exciting?  I
could wallow with you any day. (wink) -- Savage Snowball

Li Kui -- I keep trying and you keep ending on top.  Can we try another position next
time? -- Gloating Gardenia

Jules -- I may be petulant, but I think you are the pansy. (giggle) -- Petulant Pansy

Noble Assassin -- You can do better than that.  Next time I will give you a massage
first. -- Caustic Crocus

Savage Snowball -- All us Flower Girls are proud of your DM Titles and the Lord
Protectorship.  You go gal! -- Lady Fern and The Flower Girls

Not only surprised, but shocked, dear Snowball!  I'm coming... will I last long
enough to melt you down?? -- Zoum la Bouse, recognition master
P.S.  No, Caustic Crocus, I'd rather have a slimer girl!

Well done, Deadly Rage... you are not easily discouraged... -- Manique

Lady Fern -- I'm no more in the gladiatoral business, so I have plenty of time to
visit your place... -- Areopolite

Our congratulations to Savage Snowball.  The weather we're having, she's probably
better off out of here. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

Telesphorus -- What... long-distance phosphor?  Hey, I can't help it, my mind works
that way. -- Ursila Rilvar

Zoum La Bouse -- What *I* can't believe, is that the steward found your victory
unbelievable.  I'm just surprised it took you that long. -- Salina Rees

I trusted that Trustworthy Scribe to lose to me, and he did it.  Good. -- Dorian
Selan
