                                      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 DACEANA LINZ, who flew up 10 points in the rankings after mashing 
REAPER like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay 
to walk out on the sands.  REAPER lost to DACEANA LINZ and drops 8 points.  Well, if 
ya don't shows up at the laundromat, ya can'ts wash yer clothes.  BORIS KARLOFF did 
not fight this week so his title was forfeit.  In front of all the crowds, BELLA 
DEANE took the Duelmaster's crown for hers own.  I give the bum two weeks.  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 ZENSU arena.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  This week 13-6-1 SLICE was sent 
to the Dark Arena.  I know a lot of fighters with similar records who might take 
notice of this.  There's got to be more reason for the sending of SLICE to the Dark 
Arena than his record (13-6-1).  Anybody got any ideas LETHAL LEGION?  Knowing when 
to use the right tactics at the proper time is a very important step on the road to 
Duelmaster.   
     Well, there's the manager of the ZENSU giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), 
oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Ghost of Faranesi Kara Hinh -- Everyone ends with the reaper; don't blame the
messenger because you don't like the message. -- Reaper

Selvun -- Did I hit a sore spot?  Or did I make a spot sore? -- Ebola

Bah a suckoff the turn before I wanted to.  I was hoping to be an immortal
challenger.  Oh and Congrats Boris for the win; looks like I won't be around to try
and take it back. -- Slice

A Captured Orc?  Where do they FIND these beasts?  The whole thing is weird. -- Chuck
Elvis

Become a Dangerous Criminal and gain immortality in the arena.  What a fun guy to
meet.  Mean, nasty, totally lacking in generosity of spirit or skills...urg. --
Daceana Linz

Whoa!  Another Captured Orc!  Or is it the same one?  They all look alike to me. --
Bella Deane

Reaper -- So...you're just marking time till harvest?  Keeping your hand-on-the-
scythe in, sort of thing? -- Selvun

I don't see why the arenamaster stopped me from burying the embezzler in the sands.
Seemed like a good idea to me! -- Elda Mainz

     It makes bad footing for the next match. -- Arenamaster Diego

Our congratulations to Slice. -- Jorja and Beyond the Pale

Elda Mainz -- Think of this win as your "welcome to the arena" gift, and don't expect
another. -- Faranesi Kara Hinh, Skilled Scribe

Bella Deane -- Ma'am, to be captured by you might be a privilege. -- Farnok Bogg,
Captured Orc

Daceana Linz -- What a wuss.  The arena is no place for a woman.  Barefoot and
pregnant, that's the ticket for women. -- Salimbas the Red, Dangerous Criminal

Chuck Elvis -- I'm a hound dog?  Since when? -- Farnok Bogg, Captured Orc
P.S.  I do NOT "cry all the time."
