                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Coming up with a solid 2-1-0 outing, HIGHER LEARNING has advanced 3 
places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for CHATMON, who flew up 14 points 
in the rankings after mashing FLUFFY BOY like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  
Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  LEVIATHAN was overcame 
by NOT ME and drops 6 points.  Our battling duelmaster ROLL has managed to hold the 
title, fending off KNEES MCGEE's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, 
PSYCHO SQUAD.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.   
     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.   
     Well, there's the manager of the TRANSEL 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

How DARE the fans elect this... foreign food as a favorite instead of ME? -- Black
Widow
P.S.  It makes me so angry I want to eat someone.

Seven dead?  Wow!  Is it some subtle effect of the Black Tower, driving managers to
bloodthirsty madness?

Two-three and a death.  I'm tempted to throw things and end up with a screaming fit,
but then people would think I was crazy.  Can't have that. -- Not-a-Nut Jones

I was meaning to go into the matter of the Black Tower today, but I find myself
pinched for time.  Way too familiar!  The Black Tower has been showing up here and
there all around the bay, I figure in Osksi, Kaltos, Ardivent, and Valamantis as well
as Transel.  Volunteer to contest it, hmm? -- Jorja
