                                      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!.  Hey everybody, watch out for VIRGINIA, NO 
SANTA, who flew up 17 points in the rankings after mashing DARK WING like a melon.  
Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the 
sands.  DARK WING was defeated by VIRGINIA, NO SANTA and drops 14 points.  Well, if 
ya don't shows up at the laundromat, ya can'ts wash yer clothes.  RUNE HELLFIRE did 
not fight this week so hers title was forfeit.  In front of all the crowds, 5 GOLDEN 
WARRIORS took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  An 
apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad  UNDERGROUND KINGS?  Big bad 
UNDERGROUND KINGS.  Big bad UNDERGROUND KINGS.  DAL SHANG's afraid of the big bad 
UNDERGROUND KINGS.  Tra la la la la!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  
UNDERGROUND KINGS + Weapons That go Boom = GOT IT FOR CHRISTMAS + Avoid City.  Well 
just about everybody wants a piece of TEBAS TEN KOGAN, who was this week's most 
challenged warrior.  Challenging down 33 points was 5 GOLDEN WARRIORS.  Pretty soon 
he'll be using two shields and selling 'T.P.:  The only way to clean up' pins.  
Definition of petty:  5 GOLDEN WARRIORS won victory over TEBAS TEN KOGAN, a mismatch 
of 33 points.  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, ABOMINAL SNOWMAN went 
after GOBARL, who was higher by 22 points.  Well, when the dust settled, ABOMINAL 
SNOWMAN lost to GOBARL.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your ally 
in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     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.  And 
remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've 
heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

All -- For those who are wondering, the Mighty Ducks are from Simtakka (original
team:  "Ho! Ha-Ha! Guard!", "Turnparrydodge!", "Spin", "Ha-Thrust!", and "Duck
Dodgers"--all long since graduated or dead).  We've been idle for about a decade.
When we started up again we found ourselves in Dal Shang (I knew we should've taken
that left turn at Albuquerque). -- Woody mgr. "Mighty Ducks"

Sigban --  "Abominal" was chosen because of the Gladiatorial Commission's restriction
on name plate sizes.  Abominal doesn't care, anyway.  He can't read. -- Woody

Rune Hellfire -- Well done. -- $1.25 Q-Staff

My Two Front Teeth -- Hey...wait a minute!  You're not a bunny rabbit.  You have big
teeth but no long ears or cotton tail.  I will have to punish you. -- Abominal
Snowman

Corrosive Kitty -- Last time I experimented with some toothpicks.  This time I
remembered a can opener. -- Duckman

Red Ryder -- You're not ready to handle weapons like that.  You'll shoot your eye
out. -- Dark Wing

Archer Bowman -- Very brave.  Foolish...but brave. -- Masked Avenger

Virginia, No Santa -- Now, now, don't cry.  I gave you that win and all the skills,
didn't I?  If that isn't "santa," I don't know what is! -- Kassal ten Dru
P.S.  Why aren't you female?

Crystal Icedream -- (shivering)  It's your time of year, all right! -- Jeri Tavan

Johnny Sin -- That describes the way you suck up the skills. -- Tebas ten Kogan

Law Man -- I always KNEW lawyers would mean trouble. -- Ko Lao-Den

Tommy Killfiger -- What a hairy little nuisance you are! -- Jaego Sarl

Chaddeaux Noire -- I don't CARE if you're a "dark shadow" or something, you're also a
GREAT wine.  Worth the hangover. -- Gobarl

5 November 2005
It is with a proud heart that I announce the newest member of the Desolate Empire
alliance.  Dok Sik will be known from here forth as Dark Knight Dok Sik, of the
Desolate Empire.  May he be blessed with victory and courage.  May his enemies' blood
flow freely! -- The Dark Knights Wasby and Toker
