                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for ATERRADO INCREDIBLE, who flew up 18 
points in the rankings after mashing HAN KANG like a melon.  Keep your eye on this 
guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  HAN KANG was 
bested by ATERRADO INCREDIBLE and drops 16 points.  Going for the gusto and coming up 
with aught but bloody knuckles was EL CAMINO:DOS' BANDIDOS GUAPO, who was turned away 
from the Duelmastership by MURDEROUS THRUST.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, 
but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the JADE MOUNTAIN arena.  
Well just about everybody wants a piece of STRAWBERRY JHANS, who was this week's most 
challenged warrior.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  I have no doubt that CRITICALS will be celebrating long 
and loud their warrior MURDEROUS THRUST's slaying of BANDIDOS GUAPO on the sands.  
Carrion Bird Heaven:  BANDIDOS GUAPO was put to death by MURDEROUS THRUST (The true 
definition of 'Street Pizza').  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 JADE MOUNTAIN giving me the 'cut' sign (or is 
that 'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the 
world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Hasta la 
bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

Abyss -- What a coward!  Like I said before, we're just cut from a different cloth, I
don't run (catch-out) from my problems. -- Scorpio 

All -- Forward I am heavy, but backwards I am not.  What am I? -- Scorpio

Jorja -- Thanks for the layout of the lucious and beautiful Jade Mountain region.  If
Jade Mountain really existed--I'd probably live there. *smiles* -- Scorpio
P.S.  I've lived in Knoxville and have experienced the great Smokey Mountains
personally; beautiful land that way.

Stone Fall -- I've been watching your skills of the bashing style quite carefully.  I
look forward to testing my skills vs yours in the arena--soon. -- Hound Archon

Daken -- For a team captain, you're fighting quite miserable.  Do I need to pull out
my pen and paper like I did to that loser Abyss? -- Scorpio *clicking his pen*

No, Lord Scorpio, please, a little more time and you'll see I'm worthy of your honor.
-- Daken

An inversion this time, two-three.  At least I didn't let that Backstabber of a
standby get the better of me.  Someone who has ANY dealings with tofu is not to be
trusted. -- Stonefall
P.S.  Those Shews have the best food!  Worth losing for.

I may possibly start a storyline here.  Any volunteers for an adventure? -- Jorja
