                                      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!.  Say good-bye to I HATE TOURNEYS, as they are 
pushed from the coveted top team spot by the THE FUNKENSTEINS stable.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for KOGAN DJIAN, who flew up 17 points in the rankings after mashing 
SNOWBALL V like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't 
pay to walk out on the sands.  SNOWBALL V was beat by KOGAN DJIAN and drops 13 
points.  The most challenged warrior this week was TAX MAIL-IN.  If this keeps up, 
our Duelmaster's going to need more avoids!  Unlike most arenas, TAX MAIL-IN managed 
to get its challenge off against the 13-30-2 KORBIN TEN BARAN.  Going for the gusto 
and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was SAND DANCERS' KORBIN TEN BARAN, who 
was turned away from the Duelmastership by TAX MAIL-IN.  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 DAYLA KIV arena.  Did you 
hear that MEDAL OF HONOR was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of MEDAL OF HONOR's warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you who like 
math, try this one:  MEDAL OF HONOR + Weapons That go Boom = I HATE TOURNEYS + Avoid 
City.  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, BIG SAL went after KULVAR TEN 
KOGAN, who was higher by 19 points.  Well, when the dust settled, BIG SAL bested 
KULVAR TEN KOGAN.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Ask not the elves for counsel, 
for they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the DAYLA KIV giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can 
pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Two-three, but no kills, which is an improvement.  We don't even want to kill
standbys, really.  But when it's kill or die....  Well, this time it was not.  One of
our two wins was over a standby, that Dirty Ruffian who WHOLLY deserves being beaten
up.  The other one, unless hidden tourney fights were involved, seems to have been a
bit of a mis-match.  That's what you get when you don't challenge. -- Korbin ten
