                                      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 DOCTORS, as they are pushed from the coveted top team 
spot by the MIDDLE WAY 16 stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for COLIN BAKER, who flew 
up 21 points in the rankings after mashing THE USEROUS MERCHANT like a melon.  Keep 
your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was VONNER WESS, who 
dropped 11 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with TOM BAKER.  Our 
battling duelmaster COUNTER OFFER has managed to hold the title, fending off DRAGON 
HARVEST's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, AUTUMN SAGA.  Advice to 
bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the JURINE arena.  And hey, 
kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid AUTUMN SAGA, please raise you hand.  Wow.  
Does JURINE really have that many liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch 
VIKING LINGO's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running 
from AUTUMN SAGA.   
     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.  Okay, so I may not be the world's best comedian, 
but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud 
choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster
