                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
ALJAFIR.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  ROYAL 
PAIN is no joke as it posted a 3-0-0 week advancing from 2nd place to 2nd place.  Hey 
everybody, watch out for ARCANE, who flew up 24 points in the rankings after mashing 
DREAM DATE FLOYD like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher 
in the top ten was DREAM DATE FLOYD, who dropped 17 points after a disappointing (to 
say the least) bout with ARCANE.  Well, everybody's pal T.G.I. FLOYD'S moved its 
record to 11-0-0 by defeating THE SHINS in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 10 
recognition points.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and 
avoid aiming at that location.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the ALJAFIR arena.   
     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, there's the manager of the ALJAFIR 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.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Jorja -- All kidding aside, I love having you and your warriors in any arena in which
I happen to be fighting.  You almost always provide good challenge opportunities with
very good learning potential.  Without you, the options always decrease dramatically.
PLEASE COME BACK AND STAY!! =) -- Alfredo Frothingslosh, mgr. of Fish Thangs

Gidjit Hayes -- I would have loved to have fought you this turn, but unfortunately,
your team is sitting out!  Shucks...let's see who that leaves me to fight: a 13-3-0
lunger, or a 13-3-1 lunger?  I guess I'll just take this turn off too, then. -- Off
the Hook

All -- I will be fighting this turn in order to utilize our free turn credit, but
after that we will be going inactive.  If Middle Way once again becomes active, the
rest of us Fish Thangs will likely come back as well. -- Charlie Tuna
