                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  ANIMAL MAGNETISM is no joke as it posted a 
4-1-0 week advancing from 4th place to 4th place.  Hey everybody, watch out for HAL 
LASKO, who flew up 16 points in the rankings after mashing SOLDIER 4 like a melon.  
Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the 
sands.  SOLDIER 4 was defeated by HAL LASKO and drops 14 points.  In front of all the 
crowds, THOMAS FOWLER took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two 
weeks.  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 TERMAGANT VOTARY was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of TERMAGANT VOTARY's 
warriors, I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch ANIMAL 
MAGNETISM's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from 
TERMAGANT VOTARY.  Well just about everybody wants a piece of SOLDIER 4, who was this 
week's most challenged warrior.  Can any one out there say 'weasel'?  Oh well, just 
saying ETTORE HSIDAR will do.  She challenged 20 points down to trash KURESSA D'GEN.  
Definition of petty:  ETTORE HSIDAR bested KURESSA D'GEN, a mismatch of 20 points.  
Getting lots of flowers from sympathetic fans was SJORDHAL, who was successfully 
challenged by BENGAL who had a mere 32 points more than SJORDHAL.  Definition of 
petty:  BENGAL beat SJORDHAL, a mismatch of 32 points.  Was it guts or an overtaxed 
mental capacity that had SILVERBACK challenge up 26 points in the rankings to take on 
DOLT DIMWIT?  To the crowd's chants of 'Bo-zo bo-zo bo-zo', DOLT DIMWIT was taken out 
by the lower-ranked SILVERBACK.  (Maybe it's time to think Dark Arena?).   
     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.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in VEASTIAN have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!--

Ettore Hsidar -- No.  I feel for you who have lost a teammate, but that's the way it
goes in the arena, and I wanted to go out on a win and a winning record.  So, tough
luck. -- Tirniellis

Draco el Tannjn -- Hmm, I don't know about "fine opponents," but I'm obviously a fine
teacher.  And, the good thing is, I won't have to write a column!  Go for it. --
Kuressa d'Gen

Hal Lasko -- (recoiling)  Why would I want your hand, even if it IS a spare?  You
golems!  Sometimes you just don't seem to have a CLUE how to behave among real
people. -- Sjordhal

Soldier 3 -- It's part of a plot, isn't it?  A conspiracy.  If you don't have
individual names, and you all wear those blank masks, we aren't supposed to know when
you ring in a double on us in a fight--a double with more experience.  Yeah, I see it
all.  A conspiracy and a dark plot BOTH.  It could be ANYBODY under that mask. --
Toranj
P.S.  Well, anybody about six and a half feet tall.

Soldier 1 -- Does that mean you're better than Soldiers 2, 3, and 4? -- 'Korou
P.S.  I never bother with insurance.  Waste of money.

Ettore Hsidar -- It is clear that Nestor Bane suffered and died from a lack of CN.
ALWAYS a risk with a low-CN warrior. -- Tirniellis
