                                      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.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for FAITH, who flew up 24 points in the rankings after mashing THE COWS 
AFOOT like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to 
walk out on the sands.  THE COWS AFOOT was subdued by FAITH and drops 19 points.  Our 
battling duelmaster ZANDER has managed to hold the title, fending off KEVSILESSA 
KIRO's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, JINDA-BAN.  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.   
     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.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  Its been 
real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster
