                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
SUNSET.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Coming 
up with a solid 3-0-0 outing, COSMIC FORGE has advanced 5 places in the rankings.  
Hey everybody, watch out for BLAK INTENT, who flew up 17 points in the rankings after 
mashing MONSTROSITY like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a 
basher in the top ten was MONSTROSITY, who dropped 10 points after a disappointing 
(to say the least) bout with BLAK INTENT.  HELLAHURT got through to the Duelmaster 
this turn.  No doubt he was more than anxious to kick DARK CURSE's tail out of the 
throne!  Our battling duelmaster DARK CURSE has managed to hold the title, fending 
off HELLAHURT's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, GRIM FANDANGO.  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!  
And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid PHILTHBALLS, please raise you hand.  
Wow.  Does SUNSET really have that many liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but 
catch BEN'S BAZAAR's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at 
running from PHILTHBALLS.  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, HELLAHURT 
would be president.  Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.  In a 
touching display by a 'touched' warrior, BARECLAW went after DARK NUPTIALS, who was 
higher by 23 points.  Well, when the dust settled, BARECLAW won victory over DARK 
NUPTIALS.   
     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 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
