                                      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.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for SUNDOG, who flew up 26 points in the rankings after mashing PURPLE 
DRAGON like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay 
to walk out on the sands.  PURPLE DRAGON was bested by SUNDOG and drops 32 points.  
Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was GREENWARDENS' 
GOLDEN STAIRS, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by INKED PIG.  4 out of 5 
gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid BLIND MELON, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does MALCORN really have that many 
liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch THE DEVIL'S OWN's act in the arena.  
Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from BLIND MELON.   
     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, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in MALCORN 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

to lose. -- Sundog

Duskblood Pudding -- Ugh.  Too heavy on my stomach. -- Blackoak

Sleepy House -- I just couldn't seem to get awake properly for that fight. -- Wren
