                                      SPY REPORT

     Chimlevtal welcomed in the New Year with an exciting round of fights.  We had
ten teams put 49 warriors on the sands.  Only USEFUL WEAPONS failed to run a full
team of five.  A little less challenging then usual, with 8 challenges and 2
bloodfeuds in 26 fights.  No downchallenges, but plenty of killing to brighten my
day.
     ADIOS AMIGO was the most challenged warrior, but it was his challenge that went
through, ending the perfect streak of MAJOR BOO-BOO.  And it wasn't just the streak
that was ended, but MAJOR's career was also ended.  ADIOS AMIGO has his own perfect
streak going.  He has killed in both his victories.
     DEATHWING posted a challenge to ODACHI, most likely looking for an easy win and
skills.  The recipe was there (style mismatch, winning warrior against a .500
warrior), but the results were not.  And ODACHI put DEATHWING six feet under as well.
     In another surprise, BAM-BAM killed PASCAL in 9 minutes.  Unfortunately, I
missed this fight, because the report I got on it said this may have been the best
fight of the turn.
     There were two bloodfeuds this turn, both rematches from last turn, successful,
and initiated by BASH BROS OCEAN.  The more interesting one had our outgoing Lord
Protectors fight it out.  This time SEAWEED quickly put down RAPTOR.  Perhaps they
will continue their series on the Isle of the Eye?
     And that left the throne empty.  TRASH CAN edged out MR. FREEZE by continuing a
series that had been dormant for awhile.  KILROGG DEADEYE was savagely defeated by
TRASH CAN in a 23 minute Title match.
     The best team performance was unquestionably AVENGERS, going 5-0-2 and taking
one award.  There were other nice efforts and successes, but perfection with 2 kills
is really tough to beat!
     And as is usually the case, lots and lots of avoids.  28 warriors issued 50
avoids to 12 different teams.  THE STORM REAVERS was the most avoided team, with 10
of the avoids to them, THE CANUCKS avoiding the most.
     And Cunning Linguist, it is my job to try and notice the trends and going ons of
the arena.  I do my best, but I am, fortunately and unfortunately, very human and my
mistakes have been many in my short time here. -- Belinda
