                                      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.  AMERKIN INJUNS now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep 
it.  Hey everybody, watch out for LOU, who flew up 20 points in the rankings after 
mashing VENOMOUS CONCUBINE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling 
like a basher in the top ten was ARDESKIN, who dropped 10 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with ACID RAIN.  Our battling duelmaster ST. 
GEORGE has managed to hold the title, fending off RIKKI's none too subtle advances.  
Better luck next time, THE FAMILY.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to 
deliver this stuff?   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid BOOGIE NIGHTS, please raise you hand. 
Wow.  Does VEASTIAN really have that many liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but 
catch AMERKIN INJUNS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at 
running from BOOGIE NIGHTS.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  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.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  Hasta la 
bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

A one-four today, and no standbys.  Enormously tedious.  But if we'd fought standbys
and some member of our team had LOST to one, well, that would have been Worse.  So
that's okay. -- Ruwana, for the Family

     Some gladiators like quartzes of whiskey.  Of course, they lose a lot.
