                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
KYR'TERR.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  We 
now have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  SHERWOOD FOREST now holds 
the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  Coming up with a solid 1-0-0 
outing, FEAR FACTORY 39 has advanced 6 places in the rankings.  Advancing in the 
rankings was THE CODA who went from last turn's 149-121-15, to this week's record of 
152-122-15.  Hey everybody, watch out for CRESCENDO OF WAR, who flew up 29 points in 
the rankings after mashing LIGHT'S OUT like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya 
know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  LIGHT'S OUT was overcame by 
CRESCENDO OF WAR and drops 20 points.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught 
but bloody knuckles was 100% CANADIAN's BLIZZARD, who was turned away from the 
Duelmastership by NOTHING TO GEIN.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an 
onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad THE CODA?  Big bad THE CODA.  Big bad THE CODA.  KYR'TERR's afraid of the 
big bad THE CODA.  Tra la la la la!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your 
rasberries, cause TRIBE FRACTAL LUX beats feet every time THE CODA smiles at them.  
Try farming, eh?   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Big deal, so MELT DOWN got mashed in the 
Dark Arena.  With hers face she was more at home with the trolls than with us. (Waka 
waka).  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.  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

                                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
