                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  We now have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  THAT 
SMELL now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for SIOUX, who flew up 25 points in the rankings after mashing LIRI TYL AI 
like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk 
out on the sands.  BUMBLEFINGER was subdued by KORKA THE HAIRY and drops 7 points.  
Our battling duelmaster KURR LI has managed to hold the title, fending off POPCORN's 
none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, THAT SMELL.  Advice to 
bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!   
     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 DAL SHANG have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it 
hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster
