                                      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!.  Say good-bye to THE MIDDLE WAY 5, as they are 
pushed from the coveted top team spot by the THE TAKEN stable.  Don't these new 
hotshots make you sick (or, if they fought you, hurt)?  ON THE FARM, on their very 
first turn, went 2-1-0.  Hey everybody, watch out for ROSE, who flew up 21 points in 
the rankings after mashing JAD LADRUE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  And 
falling like a basher in the top ten was HANS JOILICE, who dropped 17 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with GOBLIN.  Going for the gusto and coming up 
with aught but bloody knuckles was TECHNOLOGY's FAST FORWARD, who was turned away 
from the Duelmastership by FRIED TWINKIE.  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 THE MIDDLE WAY 5 was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing 
the personal hygiene of THE MIDDLE WAY 5's warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of 
you who like math, try this one:  THE MIDDLE WAY 5 + Weapons That go Boom = THE TAKEN 
+ Avoid City.  Well just about everybody wants a piece of HOFFA, who was this week's 
most challenged warrior.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Well, the arena is no place for 
slow learners (and hopefully T.P.s) and ROSE demonstrated that very violently on JAD 
LADRUE's body.  We might as well mark the passing of MELLENKAMP, who was relatively 
new to the arena at 2-1-2.  Probably killed before his first shave.  Ask not the 
elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in KALTOS have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  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
