                                      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.  Say good-bye 
to OLDIES, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the CHAPEL OF THE 
GHOULS stable.  Advancing in the rankings was BAD SIGNS who went from last turn's 
150-93-10, to this week's record of 155-93-10.  Hey everybody, watch out for 
CONSTRUCTION ZONE, who flew up 18 points in the rankings after mashing WHITEY D'EAGLE 
like a melon.  Keep your eye on this beast.  And falling like a basher in the top ten 
was WHITEY D'EAGLE, who dropped 15 points after a disappointing (to say the least) 
bout with CONSTRUCTION ZONE.  The most challenged warrior this week was CUSTODIAN.  
If this keeps up, our Duelmaster's going to need more avoids!  Unlike most arenas, 
CUSTODIAN managed to get his challenge off against the 0-0-0 DARK CHAMPION.  Our 
battling duelmaster CUSTODIAN has managed to hold the title, fending off DARK 
CHAMPION's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, DARK ARENA.  Can you 
believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that CHAPEL OF THE GHOULS was 
most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of CHAPEL OF THE 
GHOULS' warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  
CHAPEL OF THE GHOULS + Weapons That go Boom = BAD SIGNS + Avoid City.  In a touching 
display by a 'touched' warrior, SPORT went after LUMP, who was higher by 24 points.  
Well, when the dust settled, SPORT was beat by LUMP.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  CUSTODIAN defied all odds and slew DARK 
CHAMPION in the Dark Arena.  The only ones displeased were the buzzards, as DARK 
CHAMPION's meat is notoriously tough.  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and 
take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, there's the manager of the TELORINTHE giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), 
oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster
