                                      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!.  For every winner there is a loser.  Speaking of 
losers, lets take a look at DEAD LEGENDS, who went down to 6th from 11th.  Life is 
tough.  Coming up with a solid 3-2-1 outing, PACE INVADERS has advanced 3 places in 
the rankings.  BIG LAKE TERROR is no joke as it posted a 3-1-0 week advancing from 
5th place to 4th place.  Hey everybody, watch out for BARECLAW, who flew up 19 points 
in the rankings after mashing MARIO like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And 
falling like a basher in the top ten was MARIO, who dropped 17 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with BARECLAW.  It's a proud day for the BIG 
LAKE TERROR stable, as their warrior, DARK CURSE, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  
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!  
Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad BIG LAKE  TERROR?  Big bad BIG 
LAKE TERROR.  Big bad BIG LAKE TERROR.  SUNSET's afraid of the big bad BIG LAKE 
TERROR.  Tra la la la la!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your 
rasberries, cause GRIM FANDANGO beats feet every time BIG LAKE TERROR smiles at them. 
Try farming, eh?  And who is this GREENWHIP you ask, with 26 points and a 4-4-0 
record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  Getting lots of flowers from sympathetic fans 
was DARK WHISPER, who was successfully challenged by RAZZUL who had a mere 18 points 
more than DARK WHISPER.  Definition of petty:  RAZZUL bested DARK WHISPER, a mismatch 
of 18 points.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  We might as well mark the passing of MEGANE TANO, who was 
relatively new to the arena at 5-1-0.  Probably killed before his first shave.  
Carrion Bird Heaven:  MEGANE TANO was killed by PANTHEON (The true definition of 
'Street Pizza').  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may 
encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, there's the manager of the SUNSET giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  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

P.S.  Probably won't bloodfued due to all my guys here just plain suck!

All -- Another turn missed, despicable.  I hate postal holidays.  And I don't like 
standby, either.  Hopefully the last missed turn in some time!  Things are really 
lagging around here, teams dropping off like flies.  This is SUNSET!  Let's get off
