                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  We now have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  BOOK 
OF THOMAS now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for CHINA WHITE, who flew up 11 points in the rankings after mashing 
LUTHIEN like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay 
to walk out on the sands.  RUSSIAN LULLABY lost to SLAVE-WARRIOR and drops 14 points. 
Well, everybody's pal OUT OF TP moved his record to 14-2-2 by defeating THE COLLECTOR 
in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 7 recognition points.  Advice to 
bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid KILLER B'S, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does TROCAR really have that many 
liars?  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause LEGIONS OF 
FATE beats feet every time KILLER B'S smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well dang 
howdy, but if challenges were votes, LEAKY TOILET would be president.  Although it 
may be a contest he doesn't want to win.  Challenging down 26 points was SYMGARA.  
Pretty soon he'll be using two shields and selling 'T.P.:  The only way to clean up' 
pins.  Definition of petty:  SYMGARA dealt death to  WHISPER QUIET, a mismatch of 26 
points.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  For those of you who missed it, Death showed up, grabbed 
WHISPER QUIET by the ear and took him away to a place where he won't need a coat.  
Big man!  SYMGARA kills WHISPER QUIET.  Who ya gonna fight next, SYMGARA--Minnie 
Mouse?  I hope BOOK OF THOMAS has a good enough fighter to beat the snot out of 
SYMGARA.  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 TROCAR giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya 
bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

                                NAME CHANGE-O-RAMA

     Algernon, who had NOT gotten the name change he'd asked for, looked at the latest 
petitioner.  This was a typical gladiator, big, muscular, and scarred, with a frown.  
"Ah, what can I do for you?"
     "Name change.  I heard we can do that.  I'm tired of being Jane Doe."
     "I'd think you would be," Algernon said faintly.  "The Commission has actually 
been thinking about this.  It isn't FREE, mind you!  It takes money to run our office, 
you know, and we want to buy some goats--"
     "I don't care about goats!"  He made a crude suggestion about goats.
     "Gladiators, teams, it will cost you two dollars to make a change--"
     "I had a talk with my manager.  He'll find the money.  I want to change my name 
to Jane Ralph.  I'm no doe!"  He thumped a fist on the counter.
     "Er, yes.  Jane Ralph.  Fill out this form, please."  He pushed the paper across 
the counter.  "The changes start on the 15th of April--that's the Ides, you know, and 
can be submitted through the end of May.  With the payment.  No change without the 
goat, ah, the gold."

                                  *   *   *   *   *  

     Warrior and team name changes will be accepted beginning April 15 and continuing 
throughout the month of May.  The cost will be $2 per name change.  All proceeds will 
be used to buy goats via Heifer International and will be matched up to $500.  
If you have names you want to change, please contact Customer Service. -- RSI
