                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
KALTOS.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  It 
looks like the guys(?) at TECHNOLOGY had a good week as they went 3-1-0 to put them 
in 5th place.  I guess steroids help!  Hey everybody, watch out for IRON GIANT, who 
flew up 18 points in the rankings after mashing MIDNIGHT like a melon.  Keep your eye 
on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was WATSON, who dropped 9 
points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with JUST LOSIN.  Our battling 
duelmaster 8 BALL has managed to hold the title, fending off KELLY's none too subtle 
advances.  Better luck next time, CASSEY'S CREW.  Can you believe they are paying me 
10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid LONG SWORD CLUB, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does KALTOS really have that 
many liars?  For those of you who like math, try this one:  LONG SWORD CLUB + Weapons 
That go Boom = TECHNOLOGY + Avoid City.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your ally 
in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  See ya 
next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Serra -- If only I'd have gotten in one shot. -- Buzz

We salute the tourney participants and hope to see some of them here in the arena. --
Jorja and the Middle Way

No, we do NOT hope to see some of them here in the arena, although we salute 'em. --
the Middle Way

Quartus -- Take that, you four-faced Karnhorn! -- Just Losin

Watson -- I suppose it was "elementary," wasn't it?  Well, I don't do "elementary."
-- Nolber Pring
P.S.  Though I suppose I should.

That was incredibly embarrassing.  It's a good thing I don't have to live with the
memory. -- Ghost of Melandar Orbin
P.S.  Although in fairness to myself I will point out that I died on the way to the
Infirmary, and not on the sands.  If the disorderlies hadn't been drunk and dropping
me over and over again, who knows?

Lavendar Lady -- Your color may be too delicate for the arena.  Maybe you need a
strong purple.  A "violent violet," so to speak. -- Riella True

Sienna -- Are you raw, or are you burnt? -- Isobel Kline
P.S.  Sorry, I couldn't think of anything else to say, and my contract requires that
I say something.
