                                      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!.  It was a tough week for TERMINUS, to drop 4 
places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for NO RAIN, who flew up 17 points 
in the rankings after mashing BADGER like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya 
know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  DIERKIN was beat by GROOVY 
SIR GRIMM and drops 12 points.  Our battling duelmaster SABBATH has managed to hold 
the title, fending off TONES OF HOME's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next 
time, BLIND MELON.  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 MALCORN arena.  And hey, 
kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid THE GRAIL KNIGHTS, please raise you hand.  
Wow.  Does MALCORN really have that many liars?  For those of you who like math, try 
this one:  THE GRAIL KNIGHTS + Weapons That go Boom = THE GRAIL KNIGHTS + Avoid City. 
And who is this WREN you ask, with 88 points and a 14-24-1 record.  Ooh, the tales I 
could tell!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Congrats to ERIC for revenging the death of 
his teammate (but more importantly, feeding TREESHADOW a bit of dirt).  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.  And remember, you can pick your friends 
and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown 
Spymaster
