                                      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 PHOEBE, who flew 
up 18 points in the rankings after mashing NELLIE QUARRELS like a melon.  Keep your 
eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was BLOODY MARY, who 
dropped 20 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with KUNG-FU MASTER.  
It's a proud day for the SAY MY NAME stable, as their warrior, ROBERT PAULSON, 
ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, 
so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad THE  MIDDLE WAY 4?  Big bad THE 
MIDDLE WAY 4.  Big bad THE MIDDLE WAY 4.  LYRATILAN's afraid of the big bad THE 
MIDDLE WAY 4.  Tra la la la la!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  THE 
MIDDLE WAY 4 + Weapons That go Boom = FRIENDS + Avoid City.   
     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.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  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

Lots of standbys on the sands today, but did WE get any?  As if!  One-four again, for
us, differently distributed.  This time, *I* won and became duelmaster!  Simon told
me not to hit him, but the last time I listened to "Simon says," I was a kid in the
schoolyard.  Not going down THAT road again, thank you very much. -- Keokuk Moon
P.S.  I'd tell you how fine the moon looks reflected in the river here at Keokuk, but
it happens to be overcast and sleeting, so I'd just have to make something up.  Too
much work.
