                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  We now have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  TOOL 
SHED now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  For every winner 
there is a loser.  Speaking of losers, lets take a look at THE SEWING CIRCLE, who 
went down to 1st from 5th.  Life is tough.  Coming up with a solid 2-0-0 outing, BAD 
BREAD has advanced 4 places in the rankings.  Advancing in the rankings was 
SUMMERTEETH who went from last turn's 21-17-0, to this week's record of 24-18-0.  Hey 
everybody, watch out for MULCHER, who flew up 19 points in the rankings after mashing 
KURELLEU ZIEN like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it 
doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  KURELLEU ZIEN was overcame by MULCHER and 
drops 17 points.  Well, everybody's pal HULL SCRUBBER moved his record to 9-1-0 by 
defeating TAVELSHAN KETHAL in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 3 recognition 
points.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the NIATOLI ISLAND arena.  
Did you hear that SEA DOGS was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of SEA DOGS' warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo 
me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause HALLOWIENERS beats feet every time SEA DOGS 
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, there's the manager of the NIATOLI ISLAND giving me the 'cut' sign (or is 
that 'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the 
world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Hasta la 
bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

Hull Scrubber -- Never has my hull been scrubbed so thoroughly, nor my clock cleaned
so completely. -- Tavelshan Kethal

Fishwife -- I was doing okay--I WAS, really!--until you did the lobster move.  What
the heck? -- Hassimor Shomur, seriously pinched

Okay, I shouldn't have lost to the Assassin.  It was a Bad Hair day, okay?  It
happens. -- Karinirina

I do not, as a general rule, like the Chardinees.  Damned secretive wretches.  But
since this one gave me the chance to get the only win on our team, I almost love him.
