                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
CLIFFHOME.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for FAITH, who flew up 26 points in the rankings after mashing 
THE COWS AFOOT like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  And falling like a basher 
in the top ten was THE COWS AFOOT, who dropped 20 points after a disappointing (to 
say the least) bout with FAITH.  Try as hard as the ZOMBIE SQUAD stable might, they 
were unable to find their warrior (and ex-Duelmaster) ZANDER before this week's 
fights.  In front of all the crowds, MY DEER WATSON took the Duelmaster's crown for 
hers own.  I give the bum two weeks.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to 
deliver this stuff?   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the CLIFFHOME arena.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and 
take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in CLIFFHOME have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- 
The Unknown Spymaster

Hmm, we spring upwards, as a team, by lots of points.  Is this... the absence
