                                      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 NICHOLAS, who flew 
up 25 points in the rankings after mashing PRIVATE 4 like a melon.  Keep your eye on 
this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was PRIVATE 4, who dropped 19 
points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with NICHOLAS.  Well, 
everybody's pal GASTON IPPS moved his record to 19-31-0 by defeating SERGEANT 1 in 
the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 16 recognition points.  Can you believe they 
are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid SERPENTS' HOLD, please raise you 
hand.  Wow.  Does ROCANIS really have that many liars?  And you guys like to boo me?  
Well, unsling your rasberries, cause TREXTRAS beats feet every time SERPENTS' HOLD 
smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, 
FERRIA HOUGH would be president.  Although it may be a contest she doesn't want to 
win.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your ally 
in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     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

Our congratulations to Lois Thug. -- Jorja and those who walk the Middle Way

So, this time, we go two-three, and again I get the title, the Chartered Recognition
Leader, and the Popularity Leader.  But NOT the previous duelmaster's bar tab.  He
didn't do Tab anyway, he went with the hard stuff:  Mountain Dew with full calories
and caffeine.  It makes my head ache.  I note that my teammate Newton killed one of
those pesty Cult Members, which *I* call a public service.  He should get some of the
"crowds love me" notoriety and headaches for that. -- Gaston Ipps
