                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  We now have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  BOOK 
OF THOMAS now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  Coming up with 
a solid 5-0-0 outing, BOOK OF THOMAS has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  Hey 
everybody, watch out for BILLY THE KID, who flew up 22 points in the rankings after 
mashing HUMAN PRETZEL like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days 
it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  ALWAYS AN ADDICT was subdued by WILD BILL 
and drops 15 points.  Well here's a duelmaster that doesn't sit back and say 
'Challenge me'!  THOSE I HURT made a Dark Arena Challenge against RICHARD H. this 
week.  The crowds were amazed this turn, as RICHARD H. killed the Duelmaster, THOSE I 
HURT, leaving BASHAHOLICS ANON in mourning.  This incredible death has allowed, I 
might add, FEARLESS INVENTORY from BASHAHOLICS ANON to ascend to the throne of 
Duelmaster, and I hear DARK ARENA is not happy.  An apple a day keeps the doctor 
away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the ILLIS arena.  Did you 
hear that CHAPEL ROCK was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of CHAPEL ROCK's warriors, I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may not be funny, 
but catch BASHAHOLICS ANON's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft 
at running from CHAPEL ROCK.  And who is this PILLOW FIGHT you ask, with 25 points 
and a 3-0-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  THERE IS A GOD defied all odds 
and slew CHOKEBOT 2000 in the Dark Arena.  The only ones displeased were the 
buzzards, as CHOKEBOT 2000's meat is notoriously tough.  Congrats to BILLY THE KID 
for revenging the death of his teammate (but more importantly, feeding HUMAN PRETZEL 
a bit of dirt).  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.  
Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in ILLIS have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  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
