                                      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.  Say good-bye 
to ARCANE ROYALTY, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the CARDOW 
HUNTERS stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for LYRICAL DRUGGIST, who flew up 16 points 
in the rankings after mashing SCUMORAMA like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  
And falling like a basher in the top ten was CUTE KITNAM, who dropped 11 points after 
a disappointing (to say the least) bout with FRANKIE.  Well, everybody's pal BOUTTE 
moved his record to 15-3-1 by defeating STARSINGER in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and 
gaining 7 recognition points.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver 
this stuff?   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the DULLENS arena.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  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 DULLENS 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 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

Paragon Orca -- Yes, it can be hard sometimes, and grossly unfair.  Such is life in
the arena, which is, still, better than DEATH in the arena. -- Blind Owl

Three-two?  That's odd.  Sure, TWO of the wins were over standbys, Shierrah bless
'em, but one was... the Little Bird over Evil Sparky!  Amazing. -- Blind Owl,
