                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Advancing in the rankings was GATES OF FIRE who went from last turn's 
11-4-0, to this week's record of 15-5-0.  Hey everybody, watch out for SPARTAN 1, who 
flew up 17 points in the rankings after mashing HESTI TYL VAREN like a melon.  Keep 
your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was HESTI TYL VAREN, 
who dropped 12 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with SPARTAN 1.  
Try as hard as the INSIGNIFICANCE stable might, they were unable to find their 
warrior (and ex-Duelmaster) JAXON before this week's fights.  It's a proud day for 
the SAND DANCERS stable, as their warrior, TERREINE TYL TAHL, ascended the 
Duelmaster's throne.  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!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  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.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  Its been 
real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Jaxon -- Better you than me.  Jorja'd make me write a column, and I hate public
speaking. -- Terreine tyl Tahl

Obviously, I could not let Darsal the False win!  That would be an insult to all the
gladiators of Dayla Kiv past and present, and probably future as well. -- Hesti tyl
Varen

Hesti's a little over-dramatic, but the principle is sound. -- Mardel ten Varen

And besides, it's almost FUN to beat up on the standbys.  Authorized mayhem, my fave.
-- Gorble

Really, they should have let me bury that Beggar in the sand.  It would have been
tidier. -- Nimini tyl Zo
