                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in DAYLA 
KIV.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for ERNEST R. KOUMA, who flew up 14 points in the rankings after 
mashing PUMPKIN like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher 
in the top ten was RUVAN TEN ZHALEN, who dropped 10 points after a disappointing (to 
say the least) bout with BLOODGAMES.  Our battling duelmaster GORAN DJIAN has managed 
to hold the title, fending off HOGSHEAD's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next 
time, COUNTRY PIE.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid 
aiming at that location.   
     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 MEDAL OF  HONOR?  Big bad MEDAL 
OF HONOR.  Big bad MEDAL OF HONOR.  DAYLA KIV's afraid of the big bad MEDAL OF HONOR. 
Tra la la la la!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  MEDAL OF HONOR + 
Weapons That go Boom = I HATE TOURNEYS + Avoid City.  And who is this GREELO DUFFUS 
you ask, with 39 points and a 6-21-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  Can any 
one out there say 'weasel'?  Oh well, just saying FTF will do.  It challenged 20 
points down to trash GREELO DUFFUS.  Definition of petty:  FTF defeated GREELO 
DUFFUS, a mismatch of 20 points.   
     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

We salute the tourney participants. -- Jorja and the Sand Dancers

Well, THERE is a shocker:  I took the title by DEFEATING George Wahlen.  Tres cool!
For the rest, we went three-two-one, with the death being a Cringing Cutpurse.  If he
hadn't cringed, he might have made some defense, but so be it. -- Goran Djian
