                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Coming up with a solid 2-2-0 outing, WE GOT 
GAME has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for CHS 
BULLDOG, who flew up 16 points in the rankings after mashing SPASSKY like a melon.  
Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the 
sands.  SPASSKY was subdued by CHS BULLDOG and drops 13 points.  The most challenged 
warrior this week was DEE DAA.  If this keeps up, our Duelmaster's going to need more 
avoids!  Drawing on all of its experience as a 16-8-2 warrior, U. OF E. went for the 
Duelmastership against DEE DAA this week.  Going for the gusto and coming up with 
aught but bloody knuckles was FANDILS' U. OF E., who was turned away from the 
Duelmastership by DEE DAA.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver 
this stuff?   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the ARDIVENT arena.  Did you 
hear that DUNGEON CELL was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of DUNGEON CELL's warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you who like 
math, try this one:  DUNGEON CELL + Weapons That go Boom = FANDILS + Avoid City.   
     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, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in ARDIVENT have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  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
