                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

I retired my manager's outfit but it's haunting me.  After a two-year goodbye, I sent 
a courier out to reach the old Wolves who fought for me here at Xochithlan to see if 
they were still interested in making a comeback.  Surprisingly, none of them had 
anything better to do.

So the Wolves, it seems, have migrated back home.

                                          Lobo
                                          mgr, Steel Wolves

PS -- I am still a relatively inexperienced manager, but eager to learn and grow, so I 
am hoping to post questions routinely in the ads and hopefully the veteran managers 
find the time to respond.  My wholehearted thanks in advance!

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Coming up with 
a solid 3-2-0 outing, ANYWAYUSLICEIT has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  NEW 
ORIGINALS is no joke as it posted a 3-0-0 week advancing from 7th place to 4th place. 
Hey everybody, watch out for RA, who flew up 19 points in the rankings after mashing 
SELUNE STAREDGE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this beast.  And falling like a 
basher in the top ten was MORGANA BLACK, who dropped 12 points after a disappointing 
(to say the least) bout with PARRY-SLICE.  Well, everybody's pal PEKING DUCK moved 
his record to 31-11-0 by defeating DESSLOCK CAIN in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and 
gaining 9 recognition points.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a 
bigger halberd!   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Did you hear that DUCKS UNLIMITED was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of DUCKS UNLIMITED's warriors, I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may 
not be funny, but catch ANYWAYUSLICEIT's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be 
fairly deft at running from DUCKS UNLIMITED.  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were 
votes, DANGEROUS TOYS would be president.  Although it may be a contest he doesn't 
want to win.  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, HOWARD THE DUCK went 
after SUPERSLICE, who was higher by 25 points.  Well, when the dust settled, HOWARD 
THE DUCK beat SUPERSLICE.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  In the 'Oops, What Have I Done?' 
category, DANGEROUS TOYS was mashed by BIG BEN, who let DANGEROUS TOYS know that 
killing members of NEW ORIGINALS is a no-no.  Here's some advice:  warriors with 
little wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  Its been 
real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster
