                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in ARADI. 
Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Say good-bye to 
UNNAMEABLES, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the SUPERIOR FORCES 
60 stable.  Coming up with a solid 4-0-0 outing, SUPERIOR FORCES 60 has advanced 3 
places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for TWIDDLE, who flew up 20 points 
in the rankings after mashing HOFFA like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya 
know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  CHIQUITA CHIWAWA was bested 
by EVENING STAR and drops 11 points.  Well, if ya don't shows up at the laundromat, 
ya can'ts wash yer clothes.  TICK ... TOCK did not fight this week so his title was 
forfeit.  In front of all the crowds, EVENING STAR 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 ARADI arena.   
     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.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in ARADI have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Okay, so I may not be the 
world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  See ya 
next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster
