                                      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!.  It looks like the guys(?) at DARK PANTHEON had 
a good week as they went 3-1-0 to put them in 2nd place.  I guess steroids help!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for SKINWALKER, who flew up 29 points in the rankings after 
mashing RAVEN WITCHBLADE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like 
a basher in the top ten was CHARLES, who dropped 15 points after a disappointing (to 
say the least) bout with HOBBLED.  In front of all the crowds, COOKIE FOR THE SOUL 
took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  4 out of 5 
gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the TRANSEL arena.  Did you 
hear that DARK PANTHEON was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of DARK PANTHEON's warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo me? 
Well, unsling your rasberries, cause HOLE IN THE WALL beats feet every time DARK 
PANTHEON 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?).  Congrats to JUSTIN for revenging the death 
of his teammate (but more importantly, feeding MAURADER a bit of dirt).  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.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  Its been 
real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster
