                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
TELORINTHE.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  
Hey everybody, watch out for KILLEEN, who flew up 16 points in the rankings after 
mashing PITSPAWN FOULDOG like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya know, some 
days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  MAINE was beat by MAJOR DISASTER and 
drops 10 points.  It's a proud day for the BAD SIGNS stable, as their warrior, LAKE 
EFFECT SNOW, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  Advice to bashers--never force 
anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid CHAIN GANG, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does TELORINTHE really have that many 
liars?  For those of you who like math, try this one:  CHAIN GANG + Weapons That go 
Boom = BAD SIGNS + Avoid City.  And who is this 3 WIT you ask, with 58 points and a 
5-3-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  I have no doubt that TELORINTHE will be 
celebrating long and loud their warrior VIRGINAL GIGOLO's slaying of DEAD BATTERY on 
the sands.  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.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The 
Unknown Spymaster
