                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  For every winner there is a loser.  Speaking of losers, lets take a 
look at THIEVES GUILD, who went down to 8th from 15th.  Life is tough.  Coming up 
with a solid 3-2-0 outing, TWILIGHT ORDER has advanced 5 places in the rankings.  
Advancing in the rankings was EX OBLIVIONE who went from last turn's 43-80-4, to this 
week's record of 46-80-4.  Hey everybody, watch out for PRETTY BOY, who flew up 16 
points in the rankings after mashing 55 SUCKS MORE like a melon.  Keep your eye on 
this gal.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was IN PARI DELICTO, who dropped 
14 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with MISS UNDERSTOOD.  ANGRY 
SANTA got through to the Duelmaster this turn.  No doubt he was more than anxious to 
kick BRUSHFIRE's tail out of the throne!  Well, everybody's pal BRUSHFIRE moved his 
record to 20-10-0 by defeating ANGRY SANTA in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 
4 recognition points.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps 
T.P.s at bay.   
     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 BEAKER  PEOPLE?  Big bad BEAKER 
PEOPLE.  Big bad BEAKER PEOPLE.  ARADI's afraid of the big bad BEAKER PEOPLE.  Tra la 
la la la!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  BEAKER PEOPLE + Weapons 
That go Boom = TWILIGHT ORDER + Avoid City.  Well just about everybody wants a piece 
of FALCON XLI, who was this week's most challenged warrior.  In a touching display by 
a 'touched' warrior, LAURA SECORD went after BAD FAITH, who was higher by 24 points.  
Well, when the dust settled, LAURA SECORD was overcame by BAD FAITH.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Well, the dead gal MISS FORTUNE just took THE MISGUIDED 
off hers Christmas card list.  The poor gal's bloodfeud just expired with zippo 
results.  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your ally in the arena 
with you and see what happens.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in ARADI have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Okay, so I may not be the 
world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Hasta la 
bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

Brushfire -- Wow, it feels like a brushfire has burned through the mighty forest of
my once leafy gladiatorial prowess.  You are a cruel, cruel mistress, sir. -- Son of
Bloodlust

Inferno -- Didn't your team name used to be Vouge"f"oot?  What happened to the f,
man? -- Nuln

     He sold it to pay for bread for a bunch of starving orphans. -- Ed.

Falcon XXXLVVVVIIiiiieeeee -- Of all your Falcon predecessors, you are the lamest. --
Derald

Magic Muskrat -- I didn't welcome you back?  Well shame on me; I shall have my
secretary prepare the customary flaming bag o' poo!  ;) -- Nuln

Magic Moleskin, Crazy Creepers -- Perhaps you're unaware, but Aradi got bought up by
Clear Channel.  Sad, I know. -- Nuln

Phreak -- Do you know who I am?  I am Ron Burgundy!  RON BURGUNDY!!!!  Good god man,
show some respect! -- Ron Burgundy

Holly Skull -- Hi, you might remember me from such movies as "My record's ok, But I
Really Suck", and "I Learn Four Skills a Turn and Still Can't Tie My Shoelaces."  It
was a pleasure losing to you. -- Asshemaster

Hana Kali -- The loss I can stomach, but one measly skill with our great FE
differential and my gynormous brain?  Fathomable it is not. -- Shmamy "Yoda" Crockett

Phreak -- Do you know who I am now? -- Ron Burgundy, desperate

Ed. -- Excuses?  Man...not much has changed around here has it? -- Magic Man

     Nope.  Ain't consistency grand? -- Ed.

Original Shocker -- You will pay for your insolence! -- Magic Man

Happy Peasant -- Oooo...sorry about that.  Hope you're in a happier place! -- T.H.
Bunny

Hammer -- Eek!  You suck! -- Moose Mouse

Morglum Flynn -- I don't think my record will hold too many more losses -- Laura
Secord

Cloudgazer -- Zees vas not ze outcome I vas 'oping for. -- Pierre Trudeau

Beerzilla -- (sneezing repeatedly)  That stuff smells funny!  And it doesn't taste
good, either. -- The Tail

Dooneusmun -- (whimpering)  You had a rolled-up newspaper for your backup, I just
KNOW you did!  I couldn't face it. -- Pretty Boy

Side-Bar -- (licking her chops)  Very tasty.  Chocolate...I love chocolate bars.
People tell me I shouldn't eat them, but I do anyway, because they're SOOO good. --
Flower
P.S.  And they don't make ALL dogs sick.  Just the wimps.

Willow -- (mournfully)  I thought you were a kid, and you were going to play with me.
Why does nobody play with me?  I jump up and down and bark so they'll throw the
frisbee, and they say, no, it's a shield.  I grab the stick for a tug of war, and
they say, no, it's a quarterstaff, and they hit me with it.  This is no life for a
dog! -- King

Satellite Five -- Some of you people have funny names, but I know a ball when I see
it whizzing past, AND I know what to do about it. -- Stevie

Magic Man -- Certainly not!  Buxom young blondes have been tried, and they have,
ahem, problems.  The most buxom and blonde one is on Arvat, if you want to check her
out.  Arenamistress Sugar. -- Harkon
P.S.  She's very blonde, too.  Debby Tonte could, as they say, take her
correspondence course.

Ed. -- The Things are all localized in Tobir at the moment.  Let us hope they stay
there. -- Harkon

     Indeed so.  Though you never know with Things, do you? -- Ed.

Magic Man -- Where's Sultan, you ask?  He's hiding in fear of Vougeoot's bloodfeud.
But I'm not. -- 55 Sucks More

Death Stud -- You call THAT a studly challenge?  Pshaw! -- 55 Sucks More

Amendment for "Fratsfa's Quest for the Best!"
     Managers that have teams already established in Fratsfa need not have (3) three
warriors in the initiates.  FE will NOT be a factor.  Stables may be entered at any
time.  Just announce your stable in the p-ads.
     ***************************************************************************
     This in my invitation to all managers  who wish to prove their mettle against
managers from all over Alastari.  We have limited TP's in this contest to one a team
at a time.  We DO NOT want this contest to become a scum fest as many others have,
hence the Andorian arena.  Good luck to all who come to prove their skills.  "May
your enemies' blood flow freely" -- Dark Knight Toker, Desolate Empire Alliance

I am in the process of moving house, and spotlight writing for the next two months
