                                      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.  We now have a 
new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  THE BROTHERHOOD now holds the crown 
and they are betting they can keep it.  Coming up with a solid 4-1-0 outing, THE 
DISCIPLES has advanced 5 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for MOK, 
who flew up 15 points in the rankings after mashing TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE like a melon.  
Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the 
sands.  READY EDDIE was beat by ECFOIMS and drops 11 points.  In front of all the 
crowds, PERFECT SNOTLING took the Duelmaster's crown for its own.  I give the bum two 
weeks.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at 
that location.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the COLLUSION COVE arena.  
And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid EX OBLIVIONE, please raise you hand.  
Wow.  Does COLLUSION COVE really have that many liars?  For those of you who like 
math, try this one:  EX OBLIVIONE + Weapons That go Boom = SUPERIOR FORCES 1601 + 
Avoid City.  Well just about everybody wants a piece of DARKMOOR, who was this week's 
most challenged warrior.  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, SAI JIN went 
after BB BULLY BOY, who was higher by 19 points.  Well, when the dust settled, SAI 
JIN was defeated by BB BULLY BOY.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  This week 5-7-0 AHKEEM 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 11-6-0 warrior like VIKI kick the bucket.  I wonder if SUPERIOR FORCES 
1601 will recover from the blow.  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?).  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

Shadowfire -- I guess that will teach me to say "looks like I'm winning." -- Kismet

Dawnblade -- You sure are tall of one of us Dwarves.  You may even be a bit taller
than me.  We should have a drink sometime. -- Godric Magnesson Da Vinci

Jusissa -- That first hit was a good one.  Too bad you aimed for my head.  Next time,
go for something vital. -- Darkmoor

Vladimir Yorga -- We have avenged the honor of our fallen comrade.  We will bloodfeud
you no more. -- Sai Jin

Godric -- It is against my better judgement to let Judissa challenge Darkmoor, it is
the last chance she has. -- Jove, mgr the Disciples

Cinder -- I dunno, I don't like 'em cooked quite so much.  I mean, I'll eat just
about anything, but raw is better. -- Hush Puppy

Cloudgazer -- I never could figure that.  It isn't like you can chase a cloud and
chew on it. -- Little Big Dog
P.S.  Well, you can chase it over a cliff, if you aren't paying attention.

Viki -- Well, of course!  Bathtubs are Bad Places.  Every dog knows that. -- BB Bully

Ahkeem -- More skills, more! -- Ready Eddie

Ecfoims -- Pleasantly chewy.  I like it. -- Garm
