                                      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 PURE POISON, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the FANTASTIC 
FIVE II stable.  Coming up with a solid 4-1-1 outing, DREAMERS has advanced 4 places 
in the rankings.  FANTASTIC FIVE II is no joke as it posted a 4-1-0 week advancing 
from 2nd place to 1st place.  Hey everybody, watch out for NECRO-MAN CY, who flew up 
24 points in the rankings after mashing CURARE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this 
guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  COLTRANE was 
subdued by AGONY and drops 14 points.  What does the Duelmaster and Piltdown Man have 
in common?  They are both the most challenged apes in human history!  Heyheyhey!  
MARTYR got through to the Duelmaster this turn.  No doubt he was more than anxious to 
kick PHILLIA FOX's tail out of the throne!  In front of all the crowds, MARTYR took 
the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  4 out of 5 gladiators 
surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that FANTASTIC FIVE II was 
most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of FANTASTIC FIVE 
II's warriors, I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch PURE 
POISON's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from 
FANTASTIC FIVE II.  NICK O'TINE of PURE POISON had better have a good reason for 
challenging down 15 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought NICK O'TINE showed 
great skill and promise when he overcame LOUIE ARMSTRONG.  All right, so I slept 
through it!  Big deal!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Well, the arena is no place for 
slow learners (and hopefully T.P.s) and NECRO-MAN CY demonstrated that very violently 
on CURARE's body.  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may 
encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in RIZTAB have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Okay, so I may not be the 
world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  See ya 
next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

One-four again, not a standby in sight, at least for us.  But the win was the win
that counted, i.e., mine, over the duelmaster.  Effectively a successful bloodfeud,
as well.  Good stuff!  I always say, you can COUNT on a cream cream cheese frosting
to sweeten any deal. -- Phillia Fox
