                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Coming up with a solid 1-0-0 outing, MEDAL OF HONOR J3 has advanced 3 
places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for SPIFFY, who flew up 19 points 
in the rankings after mashing ALBERT HALL like a melon.  Keep your eye on this beast. 
Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  AMBERGRIS CAYE was beat 
by AWESOME and drops 6 points.  In front of all the crowds, CEREBRUM took the 
Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  Advice to bashers--never 
force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Did you hear that BAD GIRLS was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of BAD GIRLS' warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you who 
like math, try this one:  BAD GIRLS + Weapons That go Boom = EXCLAMATION! + Avoid 
City.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  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 AMEN-TEI giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The 
Unknown Spymaster

Five dead, that's cutting it close to the bone.

One-four, and I took the title on a loss.  That was so embarrassing, you could call
me carnelian instead of mossy.  Albert won his fight, and we have no idea why.  Well,
the experience difference, of course, but Al's experience is mostly in losing.  It's
a mystery of the universe. -- Moss Agate

Mossy -- I defeated the Acorn because it was an offense against nature.  An
artificial, non-fertile nut.  Pooh.  Pah?  Anyway, it was WRONG. -- Albert Hall
