                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
TRICORUS.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for XENOLEE, who flew up 18 points in the rankings after mashing 
SKALVORD like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  And falling like a basher in the 
top ten was SKALVORD, who dropped 11 points after a disappointing (to say the least) 
bout with XENOLEE.  Our battling duelmaster DR. ORPHEUS has managed to hold the 
title, fending off CONVICTED ASSASSIN's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next 
time, TRICORUS.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid 
aiming at that location.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid DARK HORSEMEN, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does TRICORUS really have that 
many liars?  For those of you who like math, try this one:  DARK HORSEMEN + Weapons 
That go Boom = AMAZON ELITE + Avoid City.   
     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.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The 
Unknown Spymaster
