                                      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!.  We now have a new top team for all of you guys 
to dogpile on.  CORPS now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  Hey 
everybody, watch out for MAZDA, who flew up 9 points in the rankings after mashing 
LALVO OF THE PEN like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Going for the gusto and 
coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was SAND DANCERS' MORO TEN ZORA, who was 
turned away from the Duelmastership by RUBY TUESDAY.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed 
protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Here is other news that is of note.   
     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.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Okay, so I may not be the world's best comedian, 
but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  And remember, you can pick your 
friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The 
Unknown Spymaster

General Mills -- How come a bigshot like you lets that lady of negotiable affection,
Ruby Tuesday, be duelmaster?  Seems like it should be your job. -- Dolby Klee
P.S.  Oh.  Fool's Tourney.  All is now clear.

That Dirty Ruffian!  He'd better go wash, or he'll be in TROUBLE. -- Moro ten Zora

I don't believe in a dwarf that's six foot four inches tall.  It's some kind of
trick. -- Lirini tyl Varin
P.S.  Probably done with mirrors.

Darsal the False is NOT going to trick me.  Not again. -- Moko ten Zora

31 May 2008
Any and all who live in the 805 area, I would like for you to call me so we can get
together for BBQ's, softball games, and so on.  It has been a while since the last
get together (several years).  It was a blast and I am sure the next one will be
also.  We just have to do it.  All alliances are welcome.  Just because my warriors
leave your warrior beaten and bloody in defeat does not mean we can't have a beer or
five together.  I'll even buy the first round.  So call 805-588-3419 and ask for Dave
a.k.a. Misfit, former member of the Green and Purple Polka Dot Alliance (GAPPDA).
