                                      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!.  Coming up with a solid 1-0-0 outing, GAMES CRIP 
PLAYS has advanced 4 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for REGINALD 
FUNKENSTEIN, who flew up 18 points in the rankings after mashing KOGAN DJIAN like a 
melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on 
the sands.  RUVAN TEN ZHALEN was defeated by MAILER and drops 15 points.  Going for 
the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was SAND DANCERS' KORBIN TEN 
BARAN, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by TAX MAIL-IN.  Advice to 
bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the DAYLA KIV arena.  Did you 
hear that GAMES CRIP PLAYS was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of GAMES CRIP PLAYS' warriors, I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may 
not be funny, but catch I HATE TOURNEYS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be 
fairly deft at running from GAMES CRIP PLAYS.  Well just about everybody wants a 
piece of RUVAN TEN ZHALEN, who was this week's most challenged warrior.   
     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.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  Its been 
real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster
