                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for JACKAL, who flew up 41 points in the 
rankings after mashing SOLDIER 1 like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And 
falling like a basher in the top ten was JAKE BLACK, who dropped 3 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with GENERAL 1.  What does the Duelmaster and 
Piltdown Man have in common?  They are both the most challenged apes in human 
history!  Heyheyhey!  In front of all the crowds, RALPH NEPPEL took the Duelmaster's 
crown for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect 
the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Here is other news that is of note.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  CROAKER defied all odds and slew 
SPYMASTER in the Dark Arena.  The only ones displeased were the buzzards, as 
SPYMASTER's meat is notoriously tough.  It's not often when you see a 17-3-1 warrior 
like SOLDIER 1 kick the bucket.  I wonder if MEDAL OF HONOR Z1 will recover from the 
blow.  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 ZENSU 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

Well, um, shucky-do.  Only FIVE fights total this time, and three involved standbys.
And the five of us went, predictably three-two.  It looks like anyone who wants a
fight is going to have to go out on the street and start insulting people. -- Jake

     I do not recommend that. -- Arenamaster Diego
