                                      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.  SERPENTS HOLD now holds the crown 
and they are betting they can keep it.  Hey everybody, watch out for MEDAN QUIZZAR, 
who flew up 8 points in the rankings after mashing AMBITIOUS GUARD like a melon.  
Keep your eye on this guy.  Well, everybody's pal ROMO moved its record to 11-0-0 by 
defeating GILLY MANDERSON in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 9 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!   
     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 SOLVEN 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.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya 
bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster
