                                      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 SOULTAKER, who 
flew up 25 points in the rankings after mashing FAIRY GODMOTHER like a melon.  Keep 
your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was BLACK WIDOW 
XLIII, who dropped 16 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with 
BUSTED NUTS.  Well, everybody's pal ENIGMA XXV moved his record to 10-9-1 by 
defeating SCRAG in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 5 recognition points.  Can 
you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid NIHILISTIC ENDEAVOR, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does COLLUSION COVE really 
have that many liars?  For those of you who like math, try this one:  NIHILISTIC 
ENDEAVOR + Weapons That go Boom = CRAZY CREEPS + Avoid City.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Big deal, so MANAGER got mashed in the Dark 
Arena.  With his face he was more at home with the trolls than with us. (Waka waka).  
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 COLLUSION COVE giving me the 'cut' sign (or is 
that 'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the 
world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  And 
remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've 
heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster
