                                      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 HERACLITUS, who flew up 27 points in the 
rankings after mashing BROTHER ZEN like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya 
know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  BROTHER ZEN was bested by 
HERACLITUS and drops 21 points.  Isn't that life?  One minute you're on top of the 
world and then next you're laid out on a slab!  MADAM Y was dealt death by 
PARMENIDES.  Say no more.  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 RIZTAB arena.  Here's a 
song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad DREAMERS?  Big bad DREAMERS.  Big bad 
DREAMERS.  RIZTAB's afraid of the big bad DREAMERS.  Tra la la la la!  For those of 
you who like math, try this one:  DREAMERS + Weapons That go Boom = CULTS-R-US + 
Avoid City.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  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 RIZTAB 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.  Hasta la bye-bye. 
(Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

Zagga The Claw -- Dang!  You spit the hook.  Oh well...fair's fair, and you did let
me go first. -- Repulsive Rogan

Carlotta -- You had me hopping as you went down.  I guess this makes me an "Enemy of
Carlotta."  Ha! -- Billy, ya I'm a kid, so what.

Troth the Moneychanger -- Don't take any wooden nickels. -- Marlow

Parmenides -- I'm never sure how to pronounce names like yours.  Is it Par-MEN-i-des
or Par-men-EYE-des?  Somebody who wins deserves to have his name said correctly. --
Sweet Betsey

Ghost of Brother Zoink -- I'm sorry about that, but it was a darned reckless
challenge for you to make.  May you reincarnate as something great. -- Tiannary
P.S.  If this was a sneaky way to commit suicide, I don't appreciate it.
P.P.S.  Unlucky id number, coupled with your team name.

Madam Y -- Of course not!  My thumbs are as green as anyone's! -- Tariliss

Pythagoras -- I never was much good at geometry. -- Corianelle
P.S.  That's why I don't do triangles.  Too messy.

Billy -- Heck.  You're just jealous because I'm taller than you are. -- Carlotta

Our congratulations to Kool-Aid Drinker. -- Jorja and Sweet Magic
