                                      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!.  Hey everybody, watch out for FIVE + FIVE, who 
flew up 11 points in the rankings after mashing IRLON like a melon.  Keep your eye on 
this gal.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was IRLON, who dropped 8 points 
after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with FIVE + FIVE.  Going for the gusto 
and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was LIN TIRIAN's VETERAN MERCENARY, who 
was turned away from the Duelmastership by KARA HELLBLADE.  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 LIN TIRIAN arena.  Well 
dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, NATALIA NECROANGEL would be president.  
Although it may be a contest she doesn't want to win.  In a touching display by a 
'touched' warrior, CHIP-WOOD went after NATALIA NECROANGEL, who was higher by 25 
points.  Well, when the dust settled, CHIP-WOOD was bested by NATALIA NECROANGEL.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your ally 
in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in LIN TIRIAN have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it 
hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Old comments, because I missed writing 'em last time--

Chip-Wood -- You didn't have to chip ME!  Getting my armor refinished was damned
expensive. -- One-Eye Teo

Baby Split -- Drat. -- Ghost of Clumsy Dan

Five + Five -- Is this some kind of trick question?  Like maybe the answer should be
four, but most people get it wrong, and it tells you something about them? -- Blonde
Billie

Paragon -- How many sides does a paragon have? -- Irlon

Current nonsense--

Reverend Grimm -- I hate you fire and grimstone types.  Crack a smile sometime!  Er,
not with a hammer blow to one end of it.  Laugh a little. -- One-Eye Teo

That criminals are stupid is proven by the fact that the Dangerous One could only
teach me--ME, an elf!--a single skill.  He has no skills. -- Irlon

And he only taught me one, too.  But it was a different one. -- Blonde Billie
