                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
XOCHITHLAN.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  
Hey everybody, watch out for CWM, who flew up 16 points in the rankings after mashing 
CHAOS 009 like a melon.  Keep your eye on this beast.  Ya know, some days it doesn't 
pay to walk out on the sands.  CHAOS 101 lost to KOKABIEL and drops 13 points.  It's 
a proud day for the DUCKS UNLIMITED stable, as their warrior, DUCK WITH SWORDS, 
ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get 
a bigger halberd!   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the XOCHITHLAN arena.  Here's 
a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad DARQUE ANGELS?   Big bad DARQUE ANGELS. 
Big bad DARQUE ANGELS.  XOCHITHLAN's afraid of the big bad DARQUE ANGELS.  Tra la la 
la la!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause DUCKS 
UNLIMITED beats feet every time DARQUE ANGELS smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well 
just about everybody wants a piece of DUCK WITH SWORDS, who was this week's most 
challenged warrior.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  We might as well mark the 
passing of CHAOS 009, who was relatively new to the arena at 2-1-0.  Probably killed 
before hers first shave.  Knowing when to use the right tactics at the proper time is 
a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, there's the manager of the XOCHITHLAN 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.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown 
Spymaster

One-four.  Provoking.  Mostly, it provokes us to put our heads under the pillows and
refuse to get up.  Besides, there are a bunch of explosions going on all around us.
If we get up, we'd probably be expected to DO something about them.  No, thanks. --
