                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Hey everybody, watch out for KEOKUK MOON, who 
flew up 24 points in the rankings after mashing RUMPLE like a melon.  Keep your eye 
on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  RUMPLE was 
beat by KEOKUK MOON and drops 21 points.  Going for the gusto and coming up with 
aught but bloody knuckles was SAY MY NAME's BLOODY MARY, who was turned away from the 
Duelmastership by WILCE.  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.  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?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch ERRATA's act in the arena.  Those 
acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from SAY MY NAME.  And who is this 
INCREASE TEXAS you ask, with 12 points and a 2-6-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could 
tell!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Congrats to COGSWORTH for revenging the death of his 
teammate (but more importantly, feeding NALESEAN a bit of dirt).  Ask not the elves 
for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  Hasta la 
bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

From:       The Office of Accurate Census Reporting, Gladiatorial Commission
To:         All Managers

In the interest of preserving our natural resources and preventing managerial writer's 
cramp, the census form has been eliminated, effective immediately.  Managers may 
register their warriors' races and/or favorite sayings by simply writing them on a 
separate piece of paper and submitting them to the Commission.  Each warrior may have 
up to 15 favorite sayings.  Each saying must be categorized Jeer, Gloat, Boredom, Ouch, 
Victory and may be up to 80 characters long.  For any questions, please contact the 
Gladiatorial Commission.
