                                      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!.  We now have a new top team for all of you guys 
to dogpile on.  HIP HOP HEROES now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep 
it.  Hey everybody, watch out for ROGUE WAVE, who flew up 17 points in the rankings 
after mashing BUDDAM SMELTAXE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling 
like a basher in the top ten was ABCMLG, who dropped 9 points after a disappointing 
(to say the least) bout with NASTY NAS.  Unlike most arenas, EDDY managed to get his 
challenge off against the 0-0-0 WIRYDON THE GIANTESS.  Well, everybody's pal EDDY 
moved his record to 13-2-1 by defeating WIRYDON THE GIANTESS in the Duelmaster's 
Title Bout and gaining 2 recognition points.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect 
the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Here is other news that is of note.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  EDDY defied all odds and slew WIRYDON THE 
GIANTESS in the Dark Arena.  The only ones displeased were the buzzards, as WIRYDON 
THE GIANTESS' meat is notoriously tough.  Knowing when to use the right tactics at 
the proper time is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Okay, so I may not be the world's best comedian, 
but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you 
enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be 
leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster
