                                      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.  Say good-bye 
to BLADE AND BLOOD, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the FAVORITE 
GUYS stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for LION HEARTED, who flew up 20 points in the 
rankings after mashing EMBEZZLING SCRIBE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  
And falling like a basher in the top ten was KIT-KAT, who dropped 12 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with SUMMER.  Going for the gusto and coming up 
with aught but bloody knuckles was JURINE's KHALHUMS DWARF, who was turned away from 
the Duelmastership by DELORES.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a 
bigger halberd!   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the JURINE arena.  And hey, 
kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid FAVORITE GUYS, please raise you hand.  Wow.  
Does JURINE really have that many liars?  For those of you who like math, try this 
one:  FAVORITE GUYS + Weapons That go Boom = FORCE OF FIVE + Avoid City.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes 
and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in JURINE have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you 
worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster

Timo -- Well, I'm sure Shiveree is disappointed, but I'm all right.  I am finally
worthy of my Lord Kjarran.  All Servants of Kjarran must eventually make a sacrifice
to Him.  Of course, the more sacrifices one makes the better.  So I'm not done
sacrificing. -- Xander Haxan

Oh Timo -- What am I going to do without you?  I know my career is going to take a
dive without you to provide me with easy wins.  I'm afraid. -- Shivaree Sjden

Sleepy Fred -- We are well matched and equal in skill?  Isn't that horrible?  I can
only hope your butt is bigger than mine. -- Steatopygous

Stan The Man -- As my Lord Kjarran wills it.  I think I'm going to have a long and
bloody career.  Isn't that great! -- Mikai Abados

Force of Five -- Welcome to Kjarran.  Hope you'll stick around awhile.  We could use
some new blood.  May Kjarran guide your blades! -- Noachian, Servant of Kjarran, mgr.

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

ATTENTION ALL YOU ALLIANCE-TYPE PEOPLE:
For the purposes of tourney newsletter alliance listings (when I am able to do them),
you may only be listed in ONE alliance.  In other words, you have to choose!  If you
are a part of Englebert's Alliance and Englebert's Alliance is "part" of Ruthrauf's
Alliance, I will list you EITHER as part of Englebert's Alliance OR as part of
Ruthrauf's Alliance, NOT both.  The default would be the top-level alliance,
Ruthrauf's, in this example.  If you'd rather be listed separately, let me know and I
will do so, but that will be the only listing you get. -- The Saint, keeper of ever-
more-complicated lists

The Company of Brothers (TCB) welcomes two new members to our alliance...Liam the
Goth and Buddy Lee.  We have no doubt that they will prove to be assets to our
alliance and the general dueling community. -- Baphomet, co-founder, T.C.B.
