                                      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.  A stormcloud 
is brewing over the OTTO'S PARTS guildhouse.  Rumor says any more weeks like this 
ones 0-0-0 may send the team to the Dark Arena.  Coming up with a solid 4-1-0 outing, 
THE CHOSEN ONES has advanced 6 places in the rankings.  WHERE AM I? is no joke as it 
posted a 4-1-0 week advancing from 6th place to 2nd place.  Hey everybody, watch out 
for BLACK REPOSITORY, who flew up 20 points in the rankings after mashing TRUSTWORTHY 
SCRIBE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the 
top ten was URSILA RILVAR, who dropped 9 points after a disappointing (to say the 
least) bout with TEMPER.  Try as hard as the BLOOD AND GUTS! stable might, they were 
unable to find their warrior (and ex-Duelmaster) ZOUM LA BOUSE before this week's 
fights.  In front of all the crowds, HU YAN ZHUO 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?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid FLOWER GIRLS, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does FRATSFA really have that many 
liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch WHERE AM I?'s act in the arena.  Those 
acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from FLOWER GIRLS.  And who is this URSILA 
RILVAR you ask, with 70 points and a 16-18-1 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  
Was it guts or an overtaxed mental capacity that had ABU JR. challenge up 37 points 
in the rankings to take on LEIA?  I heard ABU JR. laughed all the way to the inn as 
his new point total of 100 was posted in the arena.  I guess beating LEIA really 
pays!  Well, it looks like SINISTER SAINT wasn't happy with last turn's rank, so it 
went for broke by challenging up 38 points.  No guts, no glory.  A Carrion Bird 
Sellout:  SINISTER SAINT 15-13-1 fights HU YAN ZHUO 19-23-0.  (BYOB)  
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  This week 12-10-0 ARION was sent to the 
Dark Arena.  I know a lot of fighters with similar records who might take notice of 
this.  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.  Silly 
buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the FRATSFA giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown 
Spymaster

Zoum La Bouse -- Champion and Duelmaster!  Salute.  To the victor goes the spoils and
my Flower Girls want to spoil you!  Oh, yeah.  (wink) -- Lady Fern

Sun Qian -- I admit that I like my partners experienced, but 30+ to my mere 7?  And
you did not even teach me that much?  One skill?  I protest!  But now, I WANT YOU
BAD!  (tee hee hee) -- Haughty Holly, Flower Girl

Black Repository?  What kind of name is that?  How about Dark Belly?  You sure do
have a big belly!  I am impressed with our mutual ability to bring than tussle to a
climax.  Wow! -- Hot Honeysuckle, Flow Girl (basking in the glow of a win or
whatever)

Stand In -- You again?  You just cannot stay away from me, can you?  Where else can
you get a little pain with your pleasure? -- Deadly Daisy, Flower Girl
P.S.  You really made my petals open wide! (wink)

Bleeding Minaret -- How sad.  I am sorry to have added additional bleeding.  Perhaps
next time I shall be a little gentler with you?  Come on over to The Flower Shoppe
and let me lick your wounds.  I will make you feel GOOD. -- Crazy Colea, Flower Girl

All -- May this New Year be your best one ever. -- Lady Fern and The Flower Girls

Searing Sunflower -- Are you SURE you won't get tired of me?  My teammates claim that
I'm very tiresome. -- Ellis Tate

Our congratulations to Zoum la Bouse. -- Jorja and those who walk the Middle Way

And we congratulate ME, too, don't forget that!  I'm going to start my retirement by
seeing if I can't locate our two missing teammates.  Those slackers need to get here
and be humbled! -- Salina Rees

Well, if their arrival can help us pull out of fun situations like today's oh-fer,
that'd be good. -- Ursila Rilvar

Hu Yan Zhuo -- Looks like you found me just fine. -- Hidden

Bombatta -- Close one. -- Graffitti
