                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Say good-bye to MESOPOTAMIA, as they are pushed from the coveted top 
team spot by the BOOK OF THOMAS stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for FROZEN GHOST, 
who flew up 19 points in the rankings after mashing TWO HEADED MONSTER like a melon.  
Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was TELLY 
MONSTER, who dropped 3 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with 
CAPTURED ORC.  Our battling duelmaster HAPPY has managed to hold the title, fending 
off BLOGG's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, OPEN SESAME.  Advice to 
bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the SNOWBOUND arena.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  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.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  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
