                                      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.  It was a tough 
week for DUDS, to drop 4 places in the rankings.  Coming up with a solid 0-1-0 
outing, THE BULLS has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  Advancing in the rankings 
was WORLDWIDE GORE who went from last turn's 489-362-38, to this week's record of 
492-362-38.  Hey everybody, watch out for MAROHM, who flew up 12 points in the 
rankings after mashing JANUARY JONES like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya 
know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  JANUARY JONES lost to 
MAROHM and drops 8 points.  Well, everybody's pal LAND-MINE HOPSCOTCH moved its 
record to 16-2-1 by defeating VENEMOUS CONCUBINE in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and 
gaining 6 recognition points.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver 
this stuff?   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Did you hear that THE BEGINNING was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of THE BEGINNING's warriors, I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may not 
be funny, but catch WORLDWIDE GORE's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be 
fairly deft at running from THE BEGINNING.  Well just about everybody wants a piece 
of MAROHM, who was this week's most challenged warrior.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  JEROME BETTIS defied all odds and slew ANODINE in the Dark 
Arena.  The only ones displeased were the buzzards, as ANODINE's meat is notoriously 
tough.  SAM THE SHAFT defied all odds and slew LEN-KEVRALA in the Dark Arena.  The 
only ones displeased were the buzzards, as LEN-KEVRALA's meat is notoriously tough.  
Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may encounter problems on the 
trail to the Isle.   
     Well, there's the manager of the ERINIKA giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been fun, and 
I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you worked up for Snide Clemens, 
I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster
