                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
TELORINTHE.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  We 
now have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  OLDIES now holds the 
crown and they are betting they can keep it.  It looks like the guys(?) at CHAPEL OF 
THE GHOULS had a good week as they went 4-1-1 to put them in 2nd place.  I guess 
steroids help!  Hey everybody, watch out for ORGAN GRINDER, who flew up 39 points in 
the rankings after mashing MELANIE OBERN like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  
Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  ST. MICHAEL'S was 
overcame by MORBID ANGEL and drops 7 points.  CUSTODIAN got through to the Duelmaster 
this turn.  No doubt he was more than anxious to kick CORNELIUS' tail out of the 
throne!  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was OLDIES' 
CUSTODIAN, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by CORNELIUS.  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 NONSUCH HOUSE?  Big bad NONSUCH HOUSE.  Big bad NONSUCH HOUSE.  TELORINTHE's 
afraid of the big bad NONSUCH HOUSE.  Tra la la la la!  For those of you who like 
math, try this one:  NONSUCH HOUSE + Weapons That go Boom = OLDIES + Avoid City.  
Well just about everybody wants a piece of MORBID ANGEL, who was this week's most 
challenged warrior.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Well, the arena is no place for slow 
learners (and hopefully T.P.s) and ORGAN GRINDER demonstrated that very violently on 
MELANIE OBERN's body.  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and 
no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     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.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you 
worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster

Sorry, not enough time to write persads today.  Coach has us studying film of all the
old fights in this arena. -- The Oldies

A salute and congratulations to Duelmaster Cornelius. -- Coach and The Oldies.

Cornelius -- You were right.  I am your easy one; your cannon fodder.  I bow to my
better. -- Custodian

Nocturnal Rites -- I am proud of that. -- Altar Boy

St Michael's -- Yes... maybe it was luck.  And maybe next time we meet, you will NOT
be lucky. -- Terena Verek

Altar Boy -- I suspected as much!  You can't read the writing on the walls, can you?
-- Olovar Paris

An oh-fer turn, snow falling, and we're tired.  We've been cutting and stack firewood
and shoveling snow for YEARS, it feels like. -- Melanie Obern
