                                      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.  Say good-bye 
to OLDIES, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the BAD SIGNS stable. 
Coming up with a solid 4-1-0 outing, ACRONYMS has advanced 4 places in the rankings.  
Advancing in the rankings was DEATH'S CHOSEN who went from last turn's 32-58-1, to 
this week's record of 36-59-1.  Hey everybody, watch out for FOE, who flew up 20 
points in the rankings after mashing PEP RALLY like a melon.  Keep your eye on this 
guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was FI, who dropped 14 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with CUSTODIAN.  Drawing on all of his 
experience as a 13-2-0 warrior, SIMPLETONGUE went for the Duelmastership against BUZZ 
this week.  Our battling duelmaster BUZZ has managed to hold the title, fending off 
SIMPLETONGUE's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, INVIDIOTS.  Can you 
believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad ZEITGEIST?  Big bad ZEITGEIST.  Big bad ZEITGEIST.  TELORINTHE's afraid of 
the big bad ZEITGEIST.  Tra la la la la!  For those of you who like math, try this 
one:  ZEITGEIST + Weapons That go Boom = DEATH'S CHOSEN + Avoid City.  Well just 
about everybody wants a piece of TORPORTLY, who was this week's most challenged 
warrior.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  In the 'Oops, What Have I Done?' category, TORPORTLY was 
mashed by GOLDEN SOMBRERO, who let TORPORTLY know that killing members of BAD SIGNS 
is a no-no.  Congrats to FLEA for revenging the death of his teammate (but more 
importantly, feeding IITYWTMWYBMAD a bit of dirt).  Here's some advice:  warriors 
with little wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, there's the manager of the TELORINTHE giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown

Fhume -- Blahh, toxic you are.  That stench is nothing if not toxic.  An honorable
self-respecting woman like myself would have nothing to do with someone as gaseous as
you, so it only follows that I should concede defeat.  My pride was at stake. --
***lotus-Eater

Vodi -- Ohmygod that was so like totally cool that i was like trying to parry and
then you were like trying to parry and then the whole arena was like watching us and
all that grody blood and sweat was flying like sparkles at a rave and then I like
managed to win in the end but we still both managed to look like totally hot, in the
end, and that's all that really matters, right? -- Gossipid

     Totally tubular!

Bloody Stool -- Sorry, not my intention, but combine a bloody awful attack and a foot
tall height advantage and those leg shots can wind up in the deadzone.  Bring your
worst, I deserve it. -- Torportly

Congratulations to Buzz, the top dog and top hero in Telorinthe. -- Coach and The
Oldies

Morwel -- I thought you had me there, but I lucked out.  You'd make a good
cheerleader for the team, you know? -- Pep Rally

Foe -- It was my day!  I shined the floor with my weapon.  What a day! -- Custodian

Helga -- Send in the rookie for a cleansing.  But it is those old-timers that have so
much stored up to confess.  Bless you. -- Confession

Speaking of which, Fi, that took guts.  Thanks for coming.  No penance for you.  You
have already suffered enough. -- Confession

Azaziel -- Sweat?  Look at us.  That's all we do! -- The Oldies

Acronyms and Spawn -- Welcome to a great arena.  As to introductions, Oldies are a
Consortium affiliation.  Oz says you are a fine guy and a great competitor, so good
luck here in Telorinthe. -- Coach

Michael -- Way to rev everyone up.  WE NEED PERSONALS in Telorinthe.  We are glad to
see Spawn here, because he will be a good contributor. -- Coach

Revenant -- I hate to lose, but I have to tell you "well done" for the avengement.
Some day I hope you guys will accept my apology, because it was not intentional.
Salute. -- Letter Sweater

Rizzyn -- Vroom, vroom, vroom. -- Draggin Main

All .... Okay, now, takin' votes ... Which old Coach story do you all want in a
spotlight:
   1. Reggie's outfield escapade
   2. The first two points (basketball) coach ever scored--grade school
   3. Senior antics--how the sign was changed
It will take some interest to get this old coach off his rump to write it. -- Coach

Buzz -- Well done!  I wasn't expecting to get my hat handed to me like that! --
Golden Sombrero

Spawn -- Here's a lump you've never seen before. -- Dark Oracle, mgr Bad Signs

Unify With a Spade -- Sounds like you'd be handy in a sand trap. -- Quadruple Bogey

Simpletongue -- Me got sidetracked. -- Detour

Ishtar -- And to think I had heard you were a flop. -- Steal Home

Torportly -- Aaaarrrrgggghhh!!! -- Bloody Stool

Tick -- Interesting duel... not too disappointed to have lost that one as the boss
liked some of what he saw... -- Wysiwyg

Ileosa -- We both know you were robbed... And I'm the thief!! -- Roflmao

Pound -- Wow... Not the end result I was looking for, seems that when your defenses
finally broke it was fatal for you... Expecting your friends to come after me, just
hope this cycle of death ends here for my own sake!!! -- Iitywtmwybmad

Parvo -- Sometimes it just has to be done ugly... I think we both know that! -- Gooml

Flea -- Get out of my ear!!!  I stink so bad my next fight will be at night. -- Ficcl
