                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for SARMINO TIELO, who flew up 26 points in the rankings after mashing L8R 
like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk 
out on the sands.  L8R was beat by SARMINO TIELO and drops 33 points.  Going for the 
gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was MIDDLE WAY 18's MRALISSA LOON, 
who was turned away from the Duelmastership by BBIAB.  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 ERINIKA 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?).  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they 
will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in ERINIKA have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster
