                                      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!.  Coming up with a solid 2-0-0 outing, THEM has 
advanced 4 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for MACROS THE BLACK, 
who flew up 16 points in the rankings after mashing HOUSTON FARMER like a melon.  
Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was SERGEANT 2, 
who dropped 4 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with FERRIA HOUGH. 
Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was MIDDLE WAY 20's 
NEWTON PYNE, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by RATTLER.  Can you believe 
they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And who is this FERRIA HOUGH you ask, with 
104 points and a 21-32-1 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!   
     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 15-11-1 NICHOLAS was sent to the 
Dark Arena.  I know a lot of fighters with similar records who might take notice of 
this.  It's not often when you see a 11-7-0 warrior like SERGEANT 3 kick the bucket.  
I wonder if MEDAL OF HONOR A11 will recover from the blow.  Remember:  alliances are 
great, but try and take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The 
Unknown Spymaster

Our congratulations to Nicholas.  Off to the Isle with your steely-eyed glint! --
Jorja and those who walk the Middle Way

A five-oh turn?  Head for the hills!  This is MUCH more likely to cause the city to
perish than a mere six deaths in duels (and we only had five of those, anyway). --
