                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
TRANSEL.  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.  KREWE OF DRUID now holds 
the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  Hey everybody, watch out for OL 
SMOKEY, who flew up 18 points in the rankings after mashing HOFFA like a melon.  Keep 
your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  
CAMDEN was bested by RASCALS and drops 12 points.  It's a proud day for the MEDAL OF 
HONOR B6 stable, as their warrior, GRUNT 31, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  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 KREWE OF DRUID was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of KREWE OF DRUID's warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you who like 
math, try this one:  KREWE OF DRUID + Weapons That go Boom = BALTO + Avoid City.  
Well just about everybody wants a piece of RALPH EMERY, who was this week's most 
challenged warrior.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes 
and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the TRANSEL 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.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been 
real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster
