                                      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!  A 
stormcloud is brewing over the MIDDLE WAY 10 guildhouse.  Rumor says any more weeks 
like this ones 0-5-0 may send the team to the Dark Arena.  Hey everybody, watch out 
for SUBWAY, who flew up 20 points in the rankings after mashing WALKER like a melon.  
Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the 
sands.  WALKER was defeated by SUBWAY and drops 15 points.  Try as hard as the 
DARKSIDEOFTVLAND 3 stable might, they were unable to find their warrior (and 
ex-Duelmaster) CARELESS BEAR before this week's fights.  In front of all the crowds, 
SUBWAY 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 VALAMANTIS arena.  And 
hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid GARBAGE PAIL KIDS, please raise you hand. 
Wow.  Does VALAMANTIS really have that many liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but 
catch CM - SCORPIO's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at 
running from GARBAGE PAIL KIDS.  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, KIM 
NEUW would be president.  Although it may be a contest she doesn't want to win.  A-1 
of A UNIT had better have a good reason for challenging down 10 points in a challenge 
which he won.  I thought A-1 showed great skill and promise when he defeated LENDIS 
OHLM.  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?).  In the 'Oops, What Have I Done?' category, 
KIM NEUW was mashed by DANG LEN, who let KIM NEUW know that killing members of 
GARBAGE PAIL KIDS is a no-no.  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.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The 
Unknown Spymaster

Careless Bear -- If you want to have an accident coming to the station and miss the
fights this week, I'm fine with that! -- Subway

Star -- Damn, up and down, just like Olaf Modeen says.  This time, I lost.  Bummer,
especially since Kim won.  That SHE got the only win is... well, I don't like it.  At
all.  Still, nobody died, and this new guy, Ludwig, looks like the kind of loser we
can stick with a lot of the dirty work around the guildhouse. -- Oder Quin
