                                      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, WILD 
KINGDOM has advanced 4 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for JAYNE 
THE RIPPER, who flew up 11 points in the rankings after mashing DRACKO like a melon.  
Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the 
sands.  DRACKO was bested by JAYNE THE RIPPER and drops 9 points.  Going for the 
gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was SAND DANCERS' BLONDE BILLIE, 
who was turned away from the Duelmastership by TERMINOTTER III.  An apple a day keeps 
the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the LIN TIRIAN arena.  Did 
you hear that PBA was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of PBA's warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, 
unsling your rasberries, cause WILD KINGDOM beats feet every time PBA smiles at them. 
Try farming, eh?   
     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, there's the manager of the LIN TIRIAN giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  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

Baby Split -- I don't know, I like mine with, you know, chocolate syrup and roasted
peanuts.  And maybe a banana, but it doesn't really NEED the banana, that's just for,
like, form's sake. -- Blonde Billie

Five + Five -- This is a trick question, right?  It isn't REALLY ten.  Hmm.  Fifty-
five? -- Irlon

Three Plus Three -- I don't believe in trick questions.  It's a nine.  Anybody knows
that. -- Jigger Kree

Haa-Thorn -- Does that mean I'm supposed to laugh?  And if so, do you want my
specialty, the maniacal laugh, or the evil guffaw?  Get back to me on this, and I
will oblige. -- Jayne the Ripper

Is there anybody in the DM game who is incarcerated that has had to litigate in order
to continue playing?  Or anyone in the free world who may be able to help me with
case law or legal advice?  The Administration has already taken "D&D type games" from
us once (though I recently had that decision overturned).  I believe it's only a
matter of time before they try it again and I am prepared to file a lawsuit if need
be.  I enjoy DM and any help that could be offered would be greatly appreciated!  I
can be contacted at:

Ladies and gents...get your teams together and join in on the hottest and fiercest
contest ever to grace the arena sands!  Intrigue, personal wars, you name it...we got
it going on!  What is this contest?  It's the Turf War IV in DM 47, North Fork!!
This fantastic contest was begun by my alliance mate Asmo Dius, and I've picked up
some of the slack.  Contest starts on Turn 225 (approx. date June 9th?).  It's an
"alliance-type contest", so grab your folks and bring them in for a bang up time.
Rules will be printed in the DM 47 newsletter at least until the contest starts. --
