                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
LYRATILAN.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Say 
good-bye to SAY MY NAME, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the 
FUNKY FOLK stable.  Coming up with a solid 4-0-0 outing, FUNKY FOLK has advanced 3 
places in the rankings.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was GASPAR HUELCO, 
who dropped 11 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with DAN SINGH.  
Try as hard as the MASTERS OF SIN stable might, they were unable to find their 
warrior (and ex-Duelmaster) BLOODFEUD MAN before this week's fights.  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.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid SAY MY NAME, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does LYRATILAN really have that many 
liars?  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause ERRATA 
beats feet every time SAY MY NAME smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well just about 
everybody wants a piece of DOOR DINGS, who was this week's most challenged warrior.  
In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, DOUG GRAVES went after HUBERT KOMBUN, 
who was higher by 19 points.  Well, when the dust settled, DOUG GRAVES overcame 
HUBERT KOMBUN.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and 
take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in LYRATILAN have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The

Whining is so unbecoming.... -- Sarrius
