                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in ZENSU. 
Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey everybody, 
watch out for ALPHA REV, who flew up 21 points in the rankings after mashing NISHA 
like a melon.  Keep your eye on this beast.  And falling like a basher in the top ten 
was NISHA, who dropped 13 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with 
ALPHA REV.  In front of all the crowds, MORK CALLING ORSON took the Duelmaster's 
crown for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  Advice to bashers--never force 
anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, EBBUTT MARSH would be president.  
Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may 
encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     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

Us, a Soldier, an Obscure Demon, and the standbys.  Two-three again, and, again, I
held the title by losing to the Kung-Fu Master.  I just can't seem to get a grip on
this Kung-Fu stuff.  For the rest, my teammates defeated standbys and lost to managed
gladiators.  What else is new, eh? -- Korvin Ross the Depressed and Embarrassed

                                NAME CHANGE-O-RAMA

    There was a line outside the Gladiatorial Commission's registry office.  There 
often was, but surely not now?  Alarond the Scribe, who had drawn office duty today, 
frowned at them.
    A stocky, fit, moderately handsome gladiator stepped up to the counter.  "I want a 
name-change," he said.  "How can I do my best known as," he shuddered, "'Dangling 
Eyeball'?  My name is Joe, and I want to use it."
    A small and very shapely woman stepped up beside him.  "And I am really tired of 
being known as 'DA Bait'."  She smiled, causing Alarond to sway where he stood.  "I'd 
like to be known as... Aphrodite, I think."
    The others crowded forward, each advancing a claim, the babble of voice rising to 
a roar, the crowd beginning to look like a mob--and every member of it armed and 
dangerous.
    Alarond raised his hands to quiet them, without much success.  He raised his 
voice, too.  "We'll do it!  A Name-Change-O-Rama, as soon as we can get the paperwork 
lined up!  Two or three months, maybe--"
    The gladiators howled in protest at the delay.
    "No, listen!  The files here are HUGE, it will take time to get everything 
straight.  You've got to be patient.  It WILL happen!"
