                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Rising in the 
ranks like a loaf of armored bread (okay, I admit it's corny) is 4-LETTER CAVEMEN, 
who swept up 21 places in the ranks.  Take a look at FURRY FURY's act, as they have a 
3-2-0 week and gain 11 places in the team ranking.  Suffering under a 2-3-0 record 
and dropping from 5th to 17th place were the AGGRESSION INC.  Keep trying!  A 
seasoned team is steady in the lists.  But to GOONSWARM, which fell to 25th, it's 
what you soak in before going to the Dark Arena.  Advancing in the rankings was 
WARMASTERS who went from last turn's 137-141-14, to this week's record of 141-142-14. 
Hey everybody, watch out for PINKY, who flew up 23 points in the rankings after 
mashing DEADTEAR like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya know, some days it 
doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  THAG was defeated by GRACCHUS and drops 25 
points.  Well here's a duelmaster that doesn't sit back and say 'Challenge me'!  
BLACK MARIA made a challenge against GURG this week.  In front of all the crowds, 
GURG took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  Can you 
believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     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 OF WOLF  AND MAN?  Big bad OF 
WOLF AND MAN.  Big bad OF WOLF AND MAN.  SHADOWSPIRE's afraid of the big bad OF WOLF 
AND MAN.  Tra la la la la!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch LA PENTARCHIE's 
act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from OF WOLF AND 
MAN.  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, E.M. FORSTER would be president. 
Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.  Getting lots of flowers from 
sympathetic fans was CLARA, who was successfully challenged by GARK who had a mere 18 
points more than CLARA.  Definition of petty:  GARK overcame CLARA, a mismatch of 18 
points.  Well, it looks like VERMINDERELLA wasn't happy with last turn's rank, so she 
went for broke by challenging up 37 points.  No guts, no glory.  This week 
VERMINDERELLA 13-8-0 fought GRATH 22-12-0 and in losing gained 9 points.  I know 
several gladiators who could go for a few fights like that.  Challenging down 20 
points was TING-TING.  Pretty soon she'll be using two shields and selling 'T.P.:  
The only way to clean up' pins.  Definition of petty:  TING-TING overcame BISTON, a 
mismatch of 20 points.  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, MIND FLAYER 
went after PHILIP K. DICK, who was higher by 24 points.  Well, when the dust settled, 
MIND FLAYER defeated PHILIP K. DICK.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Big deal, so '70 CHARGER R/T got mashed in 
the Dark Arena.  With hers face she was more at home with the trolls than with us. 
(Waka waka).  There's got to be more reason for the sending of '70 CHARGER R/T to the 
Dark Arena than hers record (11-7-0).  Anybody got any ideas AMERICAN MUSCLE?  This 
round goes to ORCAE ITA, their 8-5-3 warrior, PINKY slew the 9-5-1 DEADTEAR.  Stay 
tuned next week to see what happens.  In the 'Oops, What Have I Done?' category, 
SPIREWOLF was mashed by H.P. LOVECRAFT, who let SPIREWOLF know that killing members 
of LITERATE LOONS is a no-no.  Congrats to GARSK for revenging the death of his 
teammate (but more importantly, feeding ABOMBINATION a bit of dirt).  Knowing when to 
use the right tactics at the proper time is a very important step on the road to 
Duelmaster.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in SHADOWSPIRE have 
no sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make 
some tracks.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown

Ouch... Wee Beastie should be hitting some IC heads now...  I'm not in the same
league!  Could I enjoy some scums, pleease? -- Year of the Cat

Considering my anti-scum careful planning is about as useful as a spoon against a
plate armor, I am trying something else: please welcome Cardiec Tom et the Iron
Smith! -- Le Pentarque

Thanks, Overkill!  I seem to be gifted for losing gallantly! -- Average Joe

Dominatrix goes out at 13(2)-9-5-21-18(1)-14-7, -4 Init, -1 Rip, +3 Parry.  Normal
damage and weapon selection was her bane.  Couldn't seem to correct either.  She
ended up with MO/VH, SS, Parry favorite learn.  Retirement here she comes! --
Tripwire

Maceo -- Thought you were a TP.  Lucky for me I will take that style as well! --
Biston

St John Kitten -- Nice challenge and win.  Was in parry mode which was good for you.
-- Balor

Nurm -- Welcome back.  Quite the punch you have there. -- Grath

All -- Welcome Arioch.  May he make your days wretched! -- Tripwire

The Godfather is coming to town.  Corruption abounds! -- Vito Corleone

Welcome back Cavemen!  Gron regrets that the Cavemen never had a chance for a clash.
-- The Guild

Loons -- The challenge on P.G. Wodehouse was obviously intentional, the kill not so.
If it weren't for the differences in experience perhaps the Sunset/Shadowspire
killings would balance?  As it is, I await your bloodfeud.  Certainly some of these
authors knew a thing or two about revenge.  (Suddenly, I am glad there is no Loon
named "Dumas" ... ) -- Spirewolf

Jax -- Nice challenge.  I'll take those anytime. -- Lord Exeter

Volbeat -- That was one experiment that failed miserably.  Nice win. -- Attila

Overkill -- These losses are beginning to pile up. -- St. George

Melissa Joan -- We will be seeing each other again soon.  Thanks for the skills. --
Death's Mistress

SM5 -- Make sure you come prepared next time, I don't care if you forgot your
glasses, try fighting without a head!!! -- Decapitated Bill

Dead Sexy -- I'm not into girls so I wasn't that impressed but I did like your shoes,
where do you get them bedazzled like that? -- Wyld Wytch

Year of the Cat -- I expected more from you. -- Wee Beastie

Urrim -- I think you left your urine out there on the sands. -- Pinky's Pig Boy

IC -- We are still at 7-5, I hope I got my challanges in this time, I'll be seeing
you in all the wrong places. -- Unholy Knights

Welcome back to the old returning team 4-Letter Cavemen, we will try to keep our
words small so that you don't get to confused, Except for Pig Boy, he doesn't know
any big words anyway. -- Unholy Knights

Nuln -- Welcome back to your 4 Letter Cavemen! -- DeGotti

Wow!  I had no idea I was sooo popular! -- GiGi

Punch Card -- What can I say?  You hit me, it hurt!  I hit you back!  You quit! --
Meda

Angel Heart -- Thanks for all the skills! -- Baltaire

Corrin -- Don't feel too bad, I heard the same thing from Gregorr on his way to the
infirmary. -- Bugbear

All -- The Dark Arena is going to be busy with Monster Manual fighters.  Maybe I
should pull a few from the Fiend Folio...nah. -- Deep Thought

Average Joe -- I think that challenging you with all of my warriors would only serve
ot diminish my win/loss record.  We do enjoy the excitement you bring to your fights,
so perhaps I might be willing to mark a loss or two in Aggression Inc's column to see
you fight some of my other warriors in the future.  For now, though, well met and
cheers. -- The Director

Brain -- Dude!  Guess what?  I was like, totally coloring all over your FACE while
you was passed out in the sand and junk.  But sorry dude, tell Opinicus that I broke
one of his crayons. -- Shotgun Wedding, putting another mark in the WIN column
against Orcae Ita

Opinicus -- Guess that evened us up.  I only wish that I got to Faith before someone
else did.  Oh well, maybe next time! -- The Director

Tripwire -- I'm guessing that the someone you mentioned is probably gonna end up
being one of your alliance mates.  That just seems to be how you roll.  Personally, I
could care less if you decide to mind my business for me.  In case you failed to
notice, we're pretty much all in this for the fighting, so it doesn't really make any
difference to me whether it's with you, one of your alliance mates, or someone else.
However, I couldn't help noticing that you never did set that finish line.  That
makes me laugh.  Look, "hehehe". -- The Director, who isn't terribly frightened by
Tripwire

Balor -- You could'nae hear me?  Well, yer ears must be still a 'ringin from them
taps to yeh're loaf.  Donnae worry yerself though, that should go away in another
week or so. -- Killer Smile

'71 Mach One -- I figured that ta be a losin' challenge, but I though me learns might
be worth the go.  I'm guessin' I have me anseer...NO! -- Killer Smile

Elephant -- I have an entire box of those cookies, if you're interested! -- The
Director

Wyld Wytch  -- Thank you ma'am, may I have another? -- Dead Sexy

Mind Flayer -- Didja enjoy that trip to the infirmary?  I don't mean to gloat, but
it's nice to put my boot to someone else's backside for a change! -- Punch Card

St. George -- It was an honorable loss.  My advice to you for our next..learn to
duck. -- Overkill

     If there were supposed to be more personals here, our apologies.  Hal spent a
      night on the tiles, weekend off, and we're still trying to catch up with the
      mail.  They should appear next time.
