                                      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 was a tough week for AVENGERS, to drop 4 
places in the rankings.  Advancing in the rankings was REIGN OF PAIN who went from 
last turn's 2-9-0, to this week's record of 6-10-3.  Hey everybody, watch out for 
FALLOUT, who flew up 16 points in the rankings after mashing PERSISTENT BEGGAR like a 
melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on 
the sands.  ADDAI was bested by KUNG-FU MASTER and drops 21 points.  The most 
challenged warrior this week was FOOTLOOSE.  If this keeps up, our Duelmaster's going 
to need more avoids!  CAPRICA got through to the Duelmaster this turn.  No doubt he 
was more than anxious to kick FOOTLOOSE's tail out of the throne!  Our battling 
duelmaster FOOTLOOSE has managed to hold the title, fending off CAPRICA's none too 
subtle advances.  Better luck next time, ABOMINATION.  An apple a day keeps the 
doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the KOLACT arena.  Did you 
hear that THE MOONDOGS was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of THE MOONDOGS' warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you who like 
math, try this one:  THE MOONDOGS + Weapons That go Boom = THE CLUB + Avoid City.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  In the 'Oops, What Have I Done?' category, SCARFACE was 
mashed by CENSORSHIP, who let SCARFACE know that killing members of ABOMINATION is a 
no-no.  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.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've 
got you worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster
