                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was MY DEER WATSON, who 
dropped 9 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with FAITH.  Going for 
the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was HOLMES ON THE RANGE's 
BASKERVILLE PIG, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by ZANDER.  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.  Did you 
hear that JINDA-BAN was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of JINDA-BAN's warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you who like math, 
try this one:  JINDA-BAN + Weapons That go Boom = KAOS + Avoid City.  In a touching 
display by a 'touched' warrior, KORGOTH went after MORINDEL SALM, who was higher by 
21 points.  Well, when the dust settled, KORGOTH beat MORINDEL SALM.   
     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, there's the manager of the CLIFFHOME giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  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
