                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for DARISTAM, who flew up 22 points in the 
rankings after mashing SNIR like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some 
days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  SNIR lost to DARISTAM and drops 16 
points.  It's a proud day for the GRYFFINDOR HOUSE2 stable, as their warrior, 
PHOENIX, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect 
the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Did you hear that TRADERS OF TROCAR was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing 
the personal hygiene of TRADERS OF TROCAR's warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those 
of you who like math, try this one:  TRADERS OF TROCAR + Weapons That go Boom = JANIX 
+ Avoid City.  Well just about everybody wants a piece of KORASIM, who was this 
week's most challenged warrior.  ROXY of JANIX had better have a good reason for 
challenging down 14 points in a challenge which she won.  I thought ROXY showed great 
skill and promise when she defeated VARDIN ABEQ.  All right, so I slept through it!  
Big deal!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Big deal, so HERMOINE got mashed 
in the Dark Arena.  With hers face she was more at home with the trolls than with us. 
(Waka waka).  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.  
Silly buggers, eh?   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  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

Glum -- Farewell, though you may be following me soon.  Not that I'm going anywhere.
I'm going to stay right here till that caravan comes back from Rithakar.  If it does,
as hoped, make me a tidy nest egg, I'm going to hang around and hatch it out. --
Penelothe

Roxy -- Awwww.  I was hoping to see you do high kicks, but not high kicks into my
jaw!  That hurts.  How about if I take you to dinner and explain why you're a mean,
cruel woman and why you shouldn't be.  I'm a nice guy, really.  I know my father is,
well, not someone you'd want to trust farther than you could throw him, but I'm a
mama's boy.  Whole different personality, you know? -- Vardin Abeq

Snir -- Though I lost, I see that I was very popular.  That would be the scum-
sympathy effect, I suppose.  I'd rather have had a win. -- Skorindelle

Hmm.  I guess the Venomous Concubine is what my uncle meant, more or less, when he
advised me to avoid fast women.  Gods, I would if I could!  What a virago! --
Daristam

The Mage's Apprentice is kinda wimpy.  All he wants to do is carry buckets of water
and mops around.  Which is great if you have a floor that needs mopping, but that
wasn't the kind of skills I was looking for, you know? -- Korasim

Our congratulations to Oliver Wood for his tourney victory.  Will you be coming back
here? -- Jorja and the Traders of Trocar
