                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Say good-bye to DARK HORSEMEN, as they are pushed from the coveted 
top team spot by the CM - THE REVENGE stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for MORNING 
DEW, who flew up 15 points in the rankings after mashing EMBEZZLING SCRIBE like a 
melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on 
the sands.  CABO WABO lost to PAST TENSE and drops 8 points.  ATOMIC PUNK got through 
to the Duelmaster this turn.  No doubt he was more than anxious to kick MOONDARK's 
tail out of the throne!  It's a proud day for the VAN DUEL stable, as their warrior, 
ATOMIC PUNK, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 
gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad DARK HORSEMEN?  Big bad DARK HORSEMEN.  Big bad DARK HORSEMEN.  TRICORUS' 
afraid of the big bad DARK HORSEMEN.  Tra la la la la!  For those of you who like 
math, try this one:  DARK HORSEMEN + Weapons That go Boom = CM - THE REVENGE + Avoid 
City.   
     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, there's the manager of the TRICORUS giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown 
Spymaster

Two-three.  The wins over standbys, the losses to frogs.  Really, if Jorja isn't
going to pay attention, she can hardly expect us to do better.  Our strategies have
whiskers, they're so old!  But we're glad to see that our new teammate has shown up.
That will take a little of the strain off the rest of us.  SHE can do the cleaning
around the guildhouse, for a change! -- Moondark
