                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Say good-bye 
to DARK HORSEMEN, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the SEA DOGS 
stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for EVERYONE BURNS, who flew up 21 points in the 
rankings after mashing EMBEZZLING SCRIBE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  
And falling like a basher in the top ten was PHAEDRA, who dropped 16 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with BARNACLE.  In front of all the crowds, 
CARGO 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?   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the TRICORUS arena.  Here's a 
song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad SEA DOGS?  Big bad SEA DOGS.  Big bad SEA 
DOGS.  TRICORUS' afraid of the big bad SEA DOGS.  Tra la la la la!  For those of you 
who like math, try this one:  SEA DOGS + Weapons That go Boom = AMAZON ELITE + Avoid 
City.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  TANGERINE says to his dog--'Who 
should I fight this week?'.  Dog says 'THE SHARK'S MAN'.  So the guy dies.  Moral?  
Put lying dogs to sleep.  Yes, and another newbie bites the dust as THEMIS goes down 
under the sword of GOB.  Thanks to this, GOB now has 45 recognition points.  
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.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick 
your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster
