                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
TALCAMA.  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.  WEIRD STUDENTS now holds 
the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  A stormcloud is brewing over the 
THE HIGH WAY guildhouse.  Rumor says any more weeks like this ones 0-0-0 may send the 
team to the Dark Arena.  WEIRD STUDENTS seems to have it's eye on the top team spot, 
and if they continue having 5-0-0 weeks they may get it!  Hey everybody, watch out 
for RUDE RICK, who flew up 24 points in the rankings after mashing ANDRE THE GIANT 
like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten 
was IVAN KOLOFF, who dropped 15 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout 
with HARLEQUIN.  Well, if ya don't shows up at the laundromat, ya can'ts wash yer 
clothes.  LEGACY did not fight this week so his title was forfeit.  It's a proud day 
for the SEA DOGS stable, as their warrior, THIRD WIND, ascended the Duelmaster's 
throne.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at 
that location.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Did you hear that THE MENTORS was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of THE MENTORS' warriors, I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may not be 
funny, but catch SHEPHERDS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft 
at running from THE MENTORS.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and 
take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in TALCAMA have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it 
hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster
