                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
TALCAMA.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  We 
now have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  THE MENTORS now holds the 
crown and they are betting they can keep it.  A stormcloud is brewing over the SEA 
DOGS guildhouse.  Rumor says any more weeks like this ones 0-0-0 may send the team to 
the Dark Arena.  Hey everybody, watch out for SLIPPERY MICKEY, who flew up 26 points 
in the rankings after mashing RUTH like a melon.  Keep your eye on this beast.  And 
falling like a basher in the top ten was DIP, who dropped 7 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with FINN MACCOOL.  Well, everybody's pal KILL 
KITTEN moved his record to 28-14-1 by defeating THE DUBLINER in the Duelmaster's 
Title Bout and gaining 6 recognition points.  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!  
Did you hear that RYAN'S HENCHMEN was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of RYAN'S HENCHMEN's warriors, I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may 
not be funny, but catch THE MENTORS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be 
fairly deft at running from RYAN'S HENCHMEN.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes 
and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     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?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown 
Spymaster
