                                      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.  We now have a 
new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  DARQUE AGES now holds the crown and 
they are betting they can keep it.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on 
the sands.  SUN QIAN was beat by TELESPHORUS and drops 11 points.  What does the 
Duelmaster and Piltdown Man have in common?  They are both the most challenged apes 
in human history!  Heyheyhey!  ANASTASIUS got through to the Duelmaster this turn.  
No doubt he was more than anxious to kick ZOUM LA BOUSE's tail out of the throne!  In 
front of all the crowds, ANASTASIUS took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give 
the bum two weeks.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps 
T.P.s at bay.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Did you hear that WAH CHING was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of WAH CHING's warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to 
boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause FLOWER GIRLS beats feet every time WAH 
CHING smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  In a touching display by a 'touched' 
warrior, GLOATING GARDENIA went after JASMIN, who was higher by 21 points.  Well, 
when the dust settled, GLOATING GARDENIA won victory over JASMIN.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  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.  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

Congratulations to Zoum La Bouse from all your fans at The Flower Shoppe.  You make a
great Duelmaster, and you are such, such fun in the sack.  What more could one ask?
See you at The Flower Shoppe soon, Luv. -- The Flower Girls (waiting anxiously)

Jasmin -- You feisty lovely!  You put it to me!  I love it when another cutie puts it
to me!  You are the prettiest, tastiest ever! -- Caustic Crocus

Dorian Selan -- Thanks for being my first client.  Come on over to The Flower Shoppe
later and I will lick your wounds. -- Lashing Lily

Jules -- I just had to have you and it was as good as I expected.  (giggle) --
Petulant Pansy

Goodness, goodness, Jade Warriors!  The stories you can tell.  Tsk, tsk.  My girls
would be pleased to tangle with such lust-lovers as The Jade Warriors.  We thrive on
it, you know?  If you are having trouble finding The Flower Shoppe, it is probably
because:
     your manager is very forgetful
     your warriors are stumbling drunk
     you didn't have enough cab fare
     you are making up silly stories
Come on over.  Buy some of the lovliest flowers in all Alastari downstairs, and enjoy
the fun and action upstairs.  You will be glad you did. (It will be much more fun
than sitting around alone making up stories.) -- Lady Fern

Dragons Guard II -- In rereading fight results, I just noticed that Petulant Pansy
downchallenged Jules (23 down to 11).  I am amazed!  I do not know how it happened,
other than by mistake.  I apologize.  That is NOT The Flower Girls way.  It will not
happen again.  Perhaps I can offer Jules a free night stay at The Flower Shoppe.  It
will be well worth it, my gals say. -- Lady Fern

Hu Yan Zhuo -- Was it you last time, too?  (pause to check)  Well, this time it
wasn't "narrow," so I'm happy about that.  And four skills!  From my side of the
sword, a good fight. -- Ursila Rilvar
P.S.  If you'd care to come around our place this evening, well, I'm no Flower Girl,
but I can cook up a good dish of spaghetti, and I'd be pleased to share.

Li Kui -- Ouch.  No spaghetti for you! -- Salina Rees

Lashing Lily -- Nasty little thing, aren't you? -- Dorian Selan
