                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
VALAMANTIS.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  
Say good-bye to MIDDLE WAY 10, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by 
the CM - SCORPIO stable.  ZOMBIE SQUAD is no joke as it posted a 3-1-0 week advancing 
from 4th place to 3rd place.  Hey everybody, watch out for MARIAH, who flew up 18 
points in the rankings after mashing KIM NEUW like a melon.  Keep your eye on this 
gal.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  KIM NEUW was 
overcame by MARIAH and drops 8 points.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught 
but bloody knuckles was VALAMANTIS' KHALHUMS DWARF, who was turned away from the 
Duelmastership by ROSWELL.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try 
and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid FLOYD'S BREWERY, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does VALAMANTIS really have that 
many liars?  For those of you who like math, try this one:  FLOYD'S BREWERY + Weapons 
That go Boom = CM - SCORPIO + Avoid City.  And who is this HOEGARDEN you ask, with 2 
points and a 0-2-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  CM - ACHILLES of CM - 
SCORPIO had better have a good reason for challenging down 10 points in a challenge 
which he won.  I thought CM - ACHILLES showed great skill and promise when he 
overcame ODER QUIN.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  There's got to be more reason for the 
sending of TSUNAMI to the Dark Arena than hers record (5-2-1).  Anybody got any ideas 
DISASTERS?  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 VALAMANTIS 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.  Its been 
real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster
