                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for DAVID FINCHER, who flew up 14 points in 
the rankings after mashing DANGEROUS CRIMINAL like a melon.  Keep your eye on this 
guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was CAMDEN, who dropped 7 points after 
a disappointing (to say the least) bout with AMY NESIA.  Our battling duelmaster 
UPPER DECK has managed to hold the title, fending off NOT-A-NUT JONES' none too 
subtle advances.  Better luck next time, PSYCHO SQUAD.  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 PSYCHO SQUAD was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of PSYCHO SQUAD's warriors, I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may not be funny, 
but catch BALTO's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running 
from PSYCHO SQUAD.  And who is this AMY NESIA you ask, with 68 points and a 9-1-0 
record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Ask not the elves for counsel, 
for they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     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.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud 
choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
