                                      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.  It was a tough 
week for CHEER-O-KEE'S, to drop 4 places in the rankings.  Coming up with a solid 
1-0-0 outing, RESCUE RANGERS has advanced 4 places in the rankings.  THE MISGUIDED:  
Not great, but not bad.  Keep up the work and look forward to having better success 
as your warriors become more seasoned.  Hey everybody, watch out for HOLLY SKULL, who 
flew up 27 points in the rankings after mashing GAMEBOY like a melon.  Keep your eye 
on this gal.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was GAMEBOY, who dropped 23 
points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with HOLLY SKULL.  Going for the 
gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was LEGALESE's LACHES, who was 
turned away from the Duelmastership by CYCLONE.  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!  
Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad NATURAL  DISASTERS?  Big bad 
NATURAL DISASTERS.  Big bad NATURAL DISASTERS.  ARADI's afraid of the big bad NATURAL 
DISASTERS.  Tra la la la la!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch I HATE THEM's 
act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from NATURAL 
DISASTERS.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  I have no doubt that NATURAL 
DISASTERS will be celebrating long and loud their warrior WILDFIRE's slaying of OIL 
CHECK on the sands.  Congrats to ZIPPER for revenging the death of its teammate (but 
more importantly, feeding FLOOD a bit of dirt).  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.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  See ya 
next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Brushfire -- I tried to deal with you in the way we dogs normally do, which is,
running around barking wildly.  Didn't seem to help. -- Pretty Boy

Trad -- Well, I don't LIKE chlorine.  It hurts my nose.  So, of course, I just had to
bite something, and you were there.... -- Flower

Flood -- (deeply reproachful)  You washed away all my skills. -- The Tail

Moustached Rat -- You're WEIRD.  I don't LIKE you.  (barking loudly)  GO AWAY! --
Stevie

Pointy Stick -- Yeah!  Throw it again! -- King

Ed. -- Us dogs don't care.  Now, if you were talking about different kinds of...ripe
scents, that would be different! -- Flower

     But they smell different too. -- Ed.

On Jhans turn number 476 (due on Feb. 16, 2005) the Second Annual kLk St. Valentine's

DOOMcorps crush all challengers?  Will the kLk prevail?  Or will you be the
independent manager to show that alliances aren't all that?  Come on to Jhans and
let's find out!
     Prizes are:  1st.  Renaming of a Dark Arena monster and five roll-up
                        certificates or $25.00 deposited in your account.
