                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Coming up with a solid 2-3-0 outing, PIZZA 
TOPPINGS has advanced 4 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for WRAITH, 
who flew up 16 points in the rankings after mashing M. CHARDINEE like a melon.  Keep 
your eye on this beast.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was SALLY TURKEL, 
who dropped 11 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with HAM.  Going 
for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was ZOMBIE SQUADS' GRRR, 
who was turned away from the Duelmastership by JOCK-IN-THE-BOX.  Advice to 
bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Did you hear that NIGHTHAWKS was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of NIGHTHAWKS' warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you who 
like math, try this one:  NIGHTHAWKS + Weapons That go Boom = SCOTCH + Avoid City.  
Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, KESTEREL would be president.  Although 
it may be a contest she doesn't want to win.  Well, it looks like KESTEREL wasn't 
happy with last turn's rank, so she went for broke by challenging up 26 points.  No 
guts, no glory.  To the crowd's chants of 'Bo-zo bo-zo bo-zo', BALLROOM DENTISTRY was 
taken out by the lower-ranked KESTEREL.  (Maybe it's time to think Dark 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?).  We might as well mark the passing of IGONA 
KEEN, who was relatively new to the arena at 4-3-1.  Probably killed before hers 
first shave.  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.  See ya next time I'm on this 
circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster
