                                      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!.  It looks like the guys(?) at MIDDLE WAY 18 had 
a good week as they went 4-1-0 to put them in 2nd place.  I guess steroids help!  
Call it luck at the right time or bribes in the right hands, but the new team COLORS 
scored a 2-1-0 record this week.  Hey everybody, watch out for ULTOR TAK, who flew up 
22 points in the rankings after mashing ADULTERY like a melon.  Keep your eye on this 
guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  ADULTERY was beat 
by ULTOR TAK and drops 19 points.  It's a proud day for the MIDDLE WAY 18 stable, as 
their warrior, ROS QUIN, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  An apple a day keeps the 
doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Here is other news that is of note.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they 
will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     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.  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

Adultery -- What adults do, right. -- Ultor Tak

Rimn -- I dunno if it's blackmail, but it's surely a conundrum and drives me to
distraction trying to figure out what it MEANS. -- Salinda Renn
P.S.  Mild distraction.

The Osksi Noble is even more pathetic than the Fratsfa Slave. -- Lilas Keeler

Well, I didn't.  Now I'm back to befuddle and frustrate you with my senseless
ramblings.  I look forward to reconnecting with all my old friends and enemies alike.
