                                      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.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for NORWEIGEN BLUE, who flew up 19 points in the rankings after mashing 
GHOST like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top 
ten was DA2, who dropped 18 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with 
DEVAR THE TRAITOR.  Well here's a duelmaster that doesn't sit back and say 'Challenge 
me'!  BULL made a challenge against SCOTT JOPLIN this week.  It's a proud day for the 
BLUE NOTE stable, as their warrior, SCOTT JOPLIN, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  
Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the RIZTAB arena.  Did you 
hear that BLUE NOTE was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of BLUE NOTE's warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you who like math, 
try this one:  BLUE NOTE + Weapons That go Boom = F IS FOR FROG + Avoid City.  Well 
dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, NORWEIGEN BLUE would be president.  
Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Knowing when to use the right tactics at the proper time 
is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in RIZTAB have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  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
