                                      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 DUDS, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the THE BULLS stable.  
Hey everybody, watch out for SILVER BULL ION, who flew up 3 points in the rankings 
after mashing DUNCE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a 
basher in the top ten was DUNCE, who dropped 2 points after a disappointing (to say 
the least) bout with SILVER BULL ION.  Try as hard as the THE BULLS stable might, 
they were unable to find their warrior (and ex-Duelmaster) BULL MARKET before this 
week's fights.  In front of all the crowds, SILVER BULL ION took the Duelmaster's 
crown for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 
gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the ERINIKA arena.  Did you 
hear that THE BULLS was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of THE BULLS' warriors, I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but 
catch DUDS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from 
THE BULLS.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  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 ERINIKA have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it 
hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

What?  I had to fight a criminal?  Get my hands dirty?  Ugh!  I refused. -- Bimbo

Silver Bull Ion -- I hate you and your boss and the maple leaf you both rode in on!
I'm telling!  I'm telling! -- Endu Endu

Andra Watermelon -- So there!  Take that!  Hah! -- Dunce

I guess Lug missed your call, huh, Asmo Dius? -- Amy A. Airhead, Duds Princess

Heathen -- AeriJaya Jhok has only been to one tourney and went 6-3.  Had a few nice
"luck" factors from the beginning. -- Sir Chester

All -- Will be fighting one gladiator at time. -- Sir Chester

North Fork is a very tuff arena Bimbo, and Oz and his buddies are a force to be
reckoned with.  You must be good if you think North Fork to be easy and the winners
of last year's TWs to be wimpy. -- Liam the Goth, TCB

Nosferatu -- Hope to see you in North Fork. -- Liam the Goth

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.
