                                      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!.  Say good-bye to ABOMINATION, as they are pushed 
from the coveted top team spot by the BACON MAKIN' stable.  It looks like the guys(?) 
at GLORY HOUNDS had a good week as they went 4-0-1 to put them in 4th place.  I guess 
steroids help!  Hey everybody, watch out for HAMMER, who flew up 19 points in the 
rankings after mashing SIMOON TERRAT like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya 
know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  TREMORS was bested by 
LUNELLE MERRIN and drops 9 points.  Try as hard as the ROGUES GALLERY stable might, 
they were unable to find their warrior (and ex-Duelmaster) HATCHET MAN before this 
week's fights.  In front of all the crowds, WIZARDS! 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!  
And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid THE MOONDOGS, please raise you hand.  
Wow.  Does KOLACT really have that many liars?  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, 
unsling your rasberries, cause ABOMINATION beats feet every time THE MOONDOGS smiles 
at them.  Try farming, eh?  And who is this FLYLEAF you ask, with 29 points and a 
2-1-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  The audience likes blood and there was plenty of it 
covering SIMOON TERRAT as he was driven to an early grave by HAMMER of the GLORY 
HOUNDS.  Well, the arena is no place for slow learners (and hopefully T.P.s) and 
FERRIN MONDOR demonstrated that very violently on JERRY's body.  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.  Its been 
real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster
