                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Say good-bye to GASTROPUB, as they are pushed from the coveted top 
team spot by the CON + INSULT stable.  It was a tough week for GASTROPUB, to drop 5 
places in the rankings.  Coming up with a solid 1-0-0 outing, THE DELIRIUM RULES has 
advanced 3 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for BATTLE HACKS, who 
flew up 20 points in the rankings after mashing MALEDICTION like a melon.  Keep your 
eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  
NUTCASE lost to NITRO MIX and drops 10 points.  Going for the gusto and coming up 
with aught but bloody knuckles was SECRET SQUIRRELS' AVENGER, who was turned away 
from the Duelmastership by PACE MANAGEMENT.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect 
the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the ARVAT arena.  And hey, 
kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid AXE KICKERS, please raise you hand.  Wow.  
Does ARVAT really have that many liars?  For those of you who like math, try this 
one:  AXE KICKERS + Weapons That go Boom = DEVIL ADVOCATES + Avoid City.  And who is 
this CONSOLATION you ask, with 113 points and a 18-13-1 record.  Ooh, the tales I 
could tell!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  SLASH defied all odds and slew 
SHEWISH GIANT in the Dark Arena.  The only ones displeased were the buzzards, as 
SHEWISH GIANT's meat is notoriously tough.  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 ARVAT giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been fun, and 
I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you worked up for Snide Clemens, 
I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster
