                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

     The Roving Demon, Karolvingar to those who called themselves his friends, paused 
in the doorway to the arenamaster's office.
     Zrof One-Eye scowled at him, not fooled by the elaborately casual air.  The Demon 
didn't do "casual."  He raised his eyebrows.  "What?"
     "Some of the managers having been asking about your fire eels--"
     "They aren't MINE--"
     "You're the arenamaster.  That's close enough.  They want fire eels to heat THEIR 
water, and they'll be coming to you to get them."
     "What about the eels 'eating holes' in the pipes?"
     "They say they've got new, imported pipes, made of peavy sea."  The Demon 
shrugged.  "I don't think that will help.  The arena manager tried that back in the 
beginning here, you know.  The Bandit Prince made them take it back out because 'bad 
things would happen'.  I don't know what bad things, I don't think he ever said--*I* 
didn't ask!  But you might want to be prepared for 'bad things'."
     "I'll just say 'no'.  I'm good at that.  Gladiators don't need coddling, anyway."

                                      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!.  It looks like the guys(?) at QUEEN had a good 
week as they went 4-1-0 to put them in 2nd place.  I guess steroids help!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for FANCY FRED, who flew up 19 points in the rankings after 
mashing RHAPSODY like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it 
doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  NAVY GUY was subdued by BLACKLACED BETTER and 
drops 12 points.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles 
was THE INSANE GROUP's LUNATIC LARRY, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by 
BERNARD.  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!  
Did you hear that DRILL SARGE GB was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of DRILL SARGE GB's warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like 
to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause ACME beats feet every time DRILL 
SARGE GB smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your ally 
in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  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
