                                      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.  We now have a 
new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  CAULDRON OF HATE now holds the crown 
and they are betting they can keep it.  A stormcloud is brewing over the WASTELAND 
guildhouse.  Rumor says any more weeks like this ones 0-0-0 may send the team to the 
Dark Arena.  Coming up with a solid 1-1-0 outing, BEAST MASTERS has advanced 4 places 
in the rankings.  RUN AND HYDE is no joke as it posted a 3-1-0 week advancing from 
9th place to 7th place.  Hey everybody, watch out for AKAI, who flew up 20 points in 
the rankings after mashing MISSION VAO like a melon.  Keep your eye on this beast.  
And falling like a basher in the top ten was DINAH MIGHT, who dropped 14 points after 
a disappointing (to say the least) bout with BLUE MOON.  Our battling duelmaster THE 
PHILANDERER has managed to hold the title, fending off VOLITAN LIONFISH's none too 
subtle advances.  Better luck next time, BIG MEAN FISH.  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.  Did you hear that CENTER FOR OLDS was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of CENTER FOR OLDS' 
warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  CENTER 
FOR OLDS + Weapons That go Boom = WIZARDGUARD + Avoid City.  And who is this 
SKYWALKER you ask, with 65 points and a 13-15-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell! 
CONCRETE of CAULDRON OF HATE had better have a good reason for challenging down 14 
points in a challenge which he won.  I thought CONCRETE showed great skill and 
promise when he beat FANG BLENNY.  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!  Proving again that TALCAMA is not rated G, ADAM of the 
SHEPHERDS slew the warrior SKYWALKER in a rather bloody bout.  Let's look for a 
bloodfeud.  Congrats to THE PHILANDERER for revenging the death of his teammate (but 
more importantly, feeding VOLITAN LIONFISH a bit of dirt).  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 TALCAMA 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.  See ya next time 
I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

All -- I've been...out of circulation for the last couple of months, and my lists
are not up to date.  If you've announced a manager name, a new alliance, or changed
a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via
diplo, or in an e-mail (Sue (at) solberg-mathews (dot) com).  For that matter, if
you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The
Saint, keeper of lists
