                                      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 BADGER, who flew up 20 points in the rankings after mashing EMBEZZLING 
SCRIBE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the 
top ten was LADYBUG, who dropped 12 points after a disappointing (to say the least) 
bout with MORDANT DESERTER.  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.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s 
at bay.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid GREENWARDENS, 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 GREENWARDENS.  And who is this PURPLE DRAGON you ask, with 76 points and 
a 14-2-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  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 MALCORN giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The 
Unknown Spymaster
