                                      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!.  Don't these new hotshots make you sick (or, if 
they fought you, hurt)?  POWERS OF PAIN, on their very first turn, went 4-1-0.  Hey 
everybody, watch out for EVELYN, who flew up 22 points in the rankings after mashing 
MANSION like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  And falling like a basher in the 
top ten was MANSION, who dropped 14 points after a disappointing (to say the least) 
bout with EVELYN.  Unlike most arenas, SIDEWINDER managed to get his challenge off 
against the 0-0-0 BANDIT PRINCE.  The crowds were amazed this turn, as BANDIT PRINCE 
killed the Duelmaster, SIDEWINDER, leaving THE DEATH SQUAD in mourning.  This 
incredible death has allowed, I might add, BROWN WIDOW from THE DEATH SQUAD to ascend 
to the throne of Duelmaster, and I hear DARK ARENA is not happy.  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!  
Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, FEATHERS would be president.  Although 
it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.  Can any one out there say 'weasel'?  Oh 
well, just saying BROWN WIDOW will do.  She challenged 16 points down to trash 
WU-REVOLUTION.  Definition of petty:  BROWN WIDOW won victory over WU-REVOLUTION, a 
mismatch of 16 points.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may 
encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in TOBIR have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat 
it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster
