                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
AMEN-TEI.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for PASSER BY, who flew up 19 points in the rankings after 
mashing KHALHUMS DWARF like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya know, some days 
it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  SHADY LADY lost to AMBITIOUS GUARD and 
drops 9 points.  Try as hard as the SAILS OF CHARON stable might, they were unable to 
find their warrior (and ex-Duelmaster) SEXTANT before this week's fights.  In front 
of all the crowds, ERICKA BEARICKA took the Duelmaster's crown for hers own.  I give 
the bum two weeks.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger 
halberd!   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the AMEN-TEI arena.  Did you 
hear that SAILS OF CHARON was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of SAILS OF CHARON's warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like 
to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause COLOURED PEOPLE beats feet every 
time SAILS OF CHARON smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may 
encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     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.  Hasta la 
bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

All Readers -- Due to the pressures resulting from preparing for and dealing with the
Face to Face, no spotlights will be written until it's over. -- the Scribe

17 July 2004
I am currently trying to put together a favorites chart for AD warriors.  I
desperately need help with this.  What I need are style, favorite rhythm (ex.:
hi/low), favorite weapons, and tactics.  What would be great is if you could send me
a copy of the invite with the warrior's name, id#, and arena blacked out.  This way,
I can verify that this is an actual warrior.  Minis will work, too!

For those interested, I have both a challenge style vs. style and a match-up style
vs. style chart.  There's about 250 fights calculated in these charts, and I'll be
happy to send a copy to anyone who asks.  You can contact me (if you're a free world
player) at: Rick Stringer, Merit/East, SCI, P.O. Box 500, Georgetown, DE 19947-0500.
If you're in prison, just send a diplo to:  Baphomet, Mgr. Knights Templar (568), DM
#47--North Fork.  (I also have a lot of other charts and info for anyone who wants
it.)  Thanks!
