                                      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.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for MERI TCHONES, who flew up 16 points in the rankings after mashing 
PERSISTENT BEGGAR like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  And falling like a 
basher in the top ten was FRANK PEREGORY, who dropped 9 points after a disappointing 
(to say the least) bout with VETERAN MERCENARY.  Well, everybody's pal MANUEL PEREZ 
moved his record to 18-1-1 by defeating TRAVIS T FLETE in the Duelmaster's Title Bout 
and gaining 10 recognition points.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an 
onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Here is other news that is of note.   
     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.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick 
your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Manuel Perez -- Oh, it's you.  I don't know why we bother to hold the fights with you
at all.  Oh, sure, if we could get some more teams in here, get some genuine
competition, there might be a point, but as it is...?  I should have stayed in bed
and sent a letter of surrender. -- Travis T Flete

Frank Peregory -- And I suppose when your teammate Manuel graduates, you'll take up
residence at the top until YOU graduate.  I comprehend the feeling of security this
gives you, but what about REAL experience, really fighting for your life against a
complete stranger? -- Miressea Poole
P.S.  Oh, well, such is the life of a gladiator.  We must take it as it comes,
because the only way out alive is through graduation.  Bummer.

The Userous Merchant is by way of being a fool who doesn't know how to use a darned
thing.  At least, not in the arena. -- Morlin Poole

Amazing.  I didn't think the Captured Orc had that much stamina.  We must be
capturing a better breed of orcs these days. -- Lorenso Poole

Soldier 6 -- You allow yourself to have such a blank name?  Or is it a mask you hide
behind?  I could see a point in that, I suppose. -- Meri Tchones
P.S.  I signed up here to ride horses, and the next thing I know, I'm in the arena?
There is something very strange going on here.

Kusster, Highly Dangerous Standby with Criminal Overtones -- Oh, HA. -- Morlin Poole

Barkhaotai, Commander of Guards -- If he doesn't, let me know and I'll beat him up
again. -- Lorenso Poole

CALLING ALL THUGS, BRUTES, OGRES, QUARTER HALF WITS, SHALLOW HALBERD ENTHUSIASTS AND
MAUL RATS:  Since the Bashing style has often been maligned in the forums, it is time
to give the style a little tough love with the following concept:  An ALL-BASHER
arena.  The rules are simple--enter the arena as a rookie basher.  That's it.  RSI
said I need to get 20 managers on board and I'm about half way there.  If you are
interested in taking part, PM me in the forums or email me:  chase at accesspr.com
and put D2 in the subject header.

ATTENTION EVERYONE -- In March I am going to do manager lists for all arenas.  This
is part of my ongoing and undoubtedly largely futile attempt to get my lists
organized.  If you think I might not know who you are or if you think I might and
you'd rather I not share that information, let me know this month!  You can e-mail
me at Sue at solberg dash mathews dot com (replacing the at, dash and dot with
appropriate characters.  You can send a diplo to The Saint.  You can put an ad in
the newsletter.  Semaphore doesn't work so well, nor does telepathy. -- The Saint,
keeper of lists
