                                      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 IMPROVED ILLUSION, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the 
ISLANDERS stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for MINNIE, who flew up 15 points in the 
rankings after mashing STINGAREE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this beast.  And 
falling like a basher in the top ten was STINGAREE, who dropped 14 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with MINNIE.  Try as hard as the IMPROVED 
ILLUSION stable might, they were unable to find their warrior (and ex-Duelmaster) 
FAIRYFIRE before this week's fights.  In front of all the crowds, DERELICT took the 
Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  4 out of 5 gladiators 
surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the ILLIS arena.  And hey, 
kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid ISLANDERS, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does 
ILLIS really have that many liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch ALL-STAR 
NANA'S' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from 
ISLANDERS.  Well just about everybody wants a piece of I'M A BASHER, who was this 
week's most challenged warrior.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes 
and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     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.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've 
got you worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster

Our turn envelope burst open in the post office (or so I'm told, I wasn't there), and
a lot of turns fell out.  Some--not all--of the fights and other pages showed up at
the guildhouse about five days later.  If there's something missing from our
personals, blame it on the post office, okay?  We're doing our best here. -- Jorja,
Islanders

I'm A Basher -- Yes, well, sometimes life is hard.  I guess you'll just have to bear
up under this burden. -- Kona Quail

Minnie -- It must be tough to be a genderless golem.  I'm glad there was a mechanic
on standby to fix you up. -- Rose Shell
P.S.  I didn't laugh HEARTLESSLY.  I was ALL heart, darn it.

OH, gee, the Persistent Beggar.  This is so exciting. -- Kirrala
P.S.  And he's a dwarf.  Why would a dwarf beg?  I thought they were proud.

The Doomie Champion is pathetic.  What else is new? -- Stingaree

                                  LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS
