                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for TORMENT, who flew up 23 points in the 
rankings after mashing LULU BELLE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And 
falling like a basher in the top ten was SPINNING STAR, who dropped 6 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with BITCHIN' BEAST.  Try as hard as the LIVING 
HELL stable might, they were unable to find their warrior (and ex-Duelmaster) 
ZOMBIFIED before this week's fights.  In front of all the crowds, CRAB SMASHER took 
the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  Advice to 
bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And who is this LULU BELLE you ask, with 10 
points and a 3-1-0 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!  Yes, and another newbie bites the dust as LULU BELLE goes 
down under the sword of TORMENT.  Thanks to this, TORMENT now has 32 recognition 
points.  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.  Silly 
buggers, eh?   
     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.  And remember, you can pick your 
friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The 
Unknown Spymaster

     Is this manager name good for all teams run by this player?

Shark Bait -- Don't expect *me* to clean up your mess! -- Dirty Howel
P.S.  Besides, I think I may be allergic to sharks.

The Userous Merchant has nothing to offer a seamstress of discrimination.  Bah.

Who let that Dangeroush Criminal looshe? -- Ghost of Drunkard's Path

I never Captured an Orc before.  What do I do with him? -- Windmill Willy

Torment -- I feel it, and now so do you. -- Lulu Belle

Hey, try not to kill any of my gladiators, okay?  I suppose I can't stop the
standbys, but... cheese louise, I've been getting a run of the worst
replacements lately!  Mediocre I wouldn't mind, but these are so lopsided,
they're either godlings or more likely gone goslings. -- Jorja
