                                      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!.  Say good-bye to UN, as they are pushed from the 
coveted top team spot by the CAR AND DRIVER stable.  WAYFARERS is no joke as it 
posted a 3-1-0 week advancing from 2nd place to 3rd place.  Hey everybody, watch out 
for FRELSY, who flew up 23 points in the rankings after mashing ROADBLOCK like a 
melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on 
the sands.  SPEEDWAY was beat by KHALHUMS DWARF and drops 11 points.  It's a proud 
day for the WAYFARERS stable, as their warrior, BOUNCING BEA, ascended the 
Duelmaster's throne.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger 
halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid COLOURED PEOPLE, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does AMEN-TEI really have that 
many liars?  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause 
SUPERIOR FORCES 5405 beats feet every time COLOURED PEOPLE smiles at them.  Try 
farming, eh?  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, MARIO ANDRETTI would be 
president.  Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  ACANDARI defied all odds and slew WURM KIN in the Dark 
Arena.  The only ones displeased were the buzzards, as WURM KIN's meat is notoriously 
tough.  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 AMEN-TEI 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

     The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire want to announce the joining of a new
member who cherishes the same ideals, respect and loyalty that we hold dear.
     From this day forward let all know that Blackstorm is now a Dark Knight of the
Desolate Empire Alliance.  With him as our chosen brother, our alliance only becomes
stronger.  Let all his foes become ours, and ours his.  May all our enemies' blood
flow freely and give NO quarter in war.
     This is also a warning to any cowards, bullies, etc....  If you play with fire,
you WILL get burnt!!!

To those involved, no, I have not abandoned your stories.  But I've been letting them
drift, and that has to stop, so I am taking the time to make sure that I know where
they are going, more than just "what happens next" dreamed up on the fly, before
resuming work on them.  No new stories will be started until at least one of the old
ones has concluded, for the same reason:  quantity can't substitute for quality.
Your patience in this matter is appreciated. -- the Scribe
