                                      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!.  We now have a new top team for all of you guys 
to dogpile on.  THE FAMILY now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep it. 
Hey everybody, watch out for KIRJENZ, who flew up 21 points in the rankings after 
mashing STEEL SPAR like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a 
basher in the top ten was STEEL SPAR, who dropped 16 points after a disappointing (to 
say the least) bout with KIRJENZ.  In front of all the crowds, BITT BETRO took the 
Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  An apple a day keeps the 
doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Remember:  alliances are great, 
but try and take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Okay, so I may not be the world's best comedian, 
but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud 
choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

don't care for it. -- Kirjenz
