                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Coming up with a solid 4-0-0 outing, NEW BLADES has advanced 3 places 
in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for MINDCRIME, who flew up 22 points in 
the rankings after mashing GARDNER HEDGE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  
Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was ALJAFIR's M. 
CHARDINEE, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by LEAD BELLY.  Can you 
believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And who is this ULTRO PINKY you ask, with 
39 points and a 10-9-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  WANDA of FISH THANGS 
had better have a good reason for challenging down 11 points in a challenge which she 
lost.  I thought WANDA showed great skill and promise when she was overcame by 
NORBURN PINE.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  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 ALJAFIR 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

Ah!  Two-three, not so bad.  And one of the wins, NOT over a standby, was mine.  I
like that. -- Gidjit Hayes

Off the Hook -- What a mess!  By the time Pinky tore himself off your hook, there
were guts everywhere.  It seemed unreal that one person should have so many. --
Gidjit
P.S.  I can't let HIM talk to you, all he wants to do is swear.

Wanda -- For a fishy gal, you aren't so bad.  Want to go shopping?  Nothing like a
little retail therapy to take the sting out of a loss. -- Gidjit Hayes

Arcane -- That means magic, right?  Nobody could expect me to beat a magic blade. --
Norburn Pine the Totally Justified Loser

Gorf -- Too many peanuts. -- Gardner Hedge

Griffon -- Dammit, don't DO that! -- Garret Jones
