                                      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 PINECONE CHARLY, who flew up 23 points 
in the rankings after mashing BACKLASH like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya 
know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  KASPAR was defeated by 
GASTON IPPS and drops 16 points.  Our battling duelmaster LINKIN LOGGER has managed 
to hold the title, fending off MERVIN OLDES' none too subtle advances.  Better luck 
next time, MIDDLE WAY 20.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger 
halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Well just about everybody wants a piece of 
GERHART ERVIN, who was this week's most challenged warrior.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Here's some advice:  warriors 
with little wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, there's the manager of the ROCANIS 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.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), 
oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Draken-Korin -- I guess you hadn't fully recovered from the last cycle.  Hope the
Dead Tourney has you as its victor. -- Linkin Logger

Ferria -- Sometimes, it's like R U Kidding me? -- Pinecone Charley

Linkin Logger -- You're amazingly generous!  Good luck on the sands (so long as we

who walk the Middle Way

Hika Sugar -- I try. -- Ferria Hough

Our congratulations to Moe Frosttooth. -- Jorja and those who walk the Middle Way

Moe Frosttooth -- Must've been the final political points, hmm?  I wish you well on
the Isle.  Or off it, if you decide not to go. -- Mervin Oldes

Kaspar -- I warn you, if you turn me into a ghost, I won't be a friendly one! --

Pinecone Charly -- More like a porcupine, really. -- Ferria Hough

Rattler -- And that wraps up an oh-fer turn.  Thanks.  I wouldn't have MINDED getting
the only win.  Oh, well, I can always claim--with justice--that you needed that win
more than I did. -- Denna Feyl
