                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for SHERALDI, who flew up 18 points in the rankings after mashing SWEET 
like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten 
was SWEET, who dropped 10 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with 
SHERALDI.  In front of all the crowds, SON OF JOHN took the Duelmaster's crown for 
his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to 
deliver this stuff?   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
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!  And you guys like to 
boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause LIKE IT! beats feet every time PSYCHO 
SQUAD smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Remember:  alliances are great, 
but try and take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     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?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been real, 
and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Blind Blake -- Tab was a 13-10-14-21-15-6-5 ST (Great Dmg, Good Endurance) and
bonused Riposte.  I liked him.  Now he is useless.  You Carpetbagger! -- I Like It
Man

Early Morning -- You LIKE it?  How totally like a golem!  It is sooo not MY time of
day. -- Knees McGee

Elmore James -- Pushy Little Snot Syndrome. -- Son of John

Albert King -- I'm just lulling your suspicions.  One of these days, when I'm ready
and you aren't, you are going to be Tiger Food. -- Tom Tiger

Big Bill Broonzy -- Quite a trick, winning that fight.  Or not.  Since Alice wasn't
THERE. -- Not-a-Nut Jones
P.S.  I don't know where she was.  She just goes off inside her head sometimes, and
it's like a golem was left in charge of the body.
P.P.S.  Assuming the BODY was really there.  It might have been a suit of animated
armor.

Cult Members, ah!  I eat them for breakfast. -- Dark Fluffy

I'm afraid to look, but... I don't think that was a figure of speech.  He does his
own cooking. -- Not-a-Nut Jones

                                NAME CHANGE-O-RAMA

    There was a line outside the Gladiatorial Commission's registry office.  There 
often was, but surely not now?  Alarond the Scribe, who had drawn office duty today, 
frowned at them.
    A stocky, fit, moderately handsome gladiator stepped up to the counter.  "I want a 
name-change," he said.  "How can I do my best known as," he shuddered, "'Dangling 
Eyeball'?  My name is Joe, and I want to use it."
    A small and very shapely woman stepped up beside him.  "And I am really tired of 
being known as 'DA Bait'."  She smiled, causing Alarond to sway where he stood.  "I'd 
like to be known as... Aphrodite, I think."
    The others crowded forward, each advancing a claim, the babble of voice rising to 
a roar, the crowd beginning to look like a mob--and every member of it armed and 
dangerous.
    Alarond raised his hands to quiet them, without much success.  He raised his 
voice, too.  "We'll do it!  A Name-Change-O-Rama, as soon as we can get the paperwork 
lined up!  Two or three months, maybe--"
    The gladiators howled in protest at the delay.
    "No, listen!  The files here are HUGE, it will take time to get everything 
straight.  You've got to be patient.  It WILL happen!"
