                                      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 PAWS, who flew up 
15 points in the rankings after mashing GUHULONG like a melon.  Keep your eye on this 
guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was GUHULONG, who dropped 11 points 
after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with PAWS.  Going for the gusto and 
coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was CLIFFHOME's VETERAN MERCENARY, who was 
turned away from the Duelmastership by SIR LICKSALOT.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed 
protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the CLIFFHOME arena.  Well 
dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, HARANDUR would be president.  Although it 
may be a contest he doesn't want to win.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  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.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The 
Unknown Spymaster
