                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
KATI-TEI.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for LURLINE GRACE, who flew up 19 points in the rankings after 
mashing THE HONEST MERCHANT like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  And falling 
like a basher in the top ten was FLUTTERLEE, who dropped 8 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with RUTHLESS JAYWALKER.  Drawing on all of 
hers experience as a 14-6-0 warrior, CHICKEN TIGHT JEANS went for the Duelmastership 
against GREW SOME GRUE this week.  Well, everybody's pal GREW SOME GRUE moved his 
record to 12-5-0 by defeating CHICKEN TIGHT JEANS in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and 
gaining 9 recognition points.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver 
this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that OLD SCHOOL was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of OLD SCHOOL's warriors, 
I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, 
cause GLAD TO MEAT YOU beats feet every time OLD SCHOOL smiles at them.  Try farming, 
eh?  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, JEHU would be president.  
Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.  PORTERHOUSE ARREST of GLAD TO 
MEAT YOU had better have a good reason for challenging down 14 points in a challenge 
which she won.  I thought PORTERHOUSE ARREST showed great skill and promise when she 
subdued JEHU.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Here's some advice:  warriors with little 
wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, there's the manager of the KATI-TEI 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.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been 
real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

let's find out!
     Prizes are:  1st.  Renaming of a Dark Arena monster and five roll-up
                        certificates or $25.00 deposited in your account.
