                                      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.  Say good-bye 
to KLKASINO HAMMERZ, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the 
JAILBIRDS stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for PEEP, who flew up 15 points in the 
rankings after mashing THE CLAW like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, 
some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  THE CLAW was subdued by PEEP and 
drops 12 points.  The most challenged warrior this week was THE CRIPPLER.  If this 
keeps up, our Duelmaster's going to need more avoids!  Unlike most arenas, THE 
CRIPPLER managed to get his challenge off against the 0-0-0 WURM KIN.  The crowds 
were amazed this turn, as WURM KIN killed the Duelmaster, THE CRIPPLER, leaving 
RAVAGING LORDS in mourning.  This incredible death has allowed, I might add, SOCIETY 
RED from JAILBIRDS to ascend to the throne of Duelmaster, and I hear DARK ARENA is 
not happy.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Did you hear that RAVAGING LORDS was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of RAVAGING LORDS' warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like 
to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause ERRATA beats feet every time 
RAVAGING LORDS smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?   
     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.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in NIATOLI ISLAND 
have no sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another 
Spy Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  Its been real, and its been fun, but 
it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster
