                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
NIANIA.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Call 
it luck at the right time or bribes in the right hands, but the new team THE 
MOTHERSHIP CH scored a 4-0-0 record this week.  Hey everybody, watch out for GRONK 
SPIKE, who flew up 16 points in the rankings after mashing EMBEZZLING SCRIBE like a 
melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was 
KESTRALINE, who dropped 8 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with 
FORBIDDEN FRUIT.  Our battling duelmaster CHAKTIRI has managed to hold the title, 
fending off KINTHIRA's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, THE GOLDEN 
FISH.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the NIANIA arena.  Here's a 
song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad SERPENTS HOLD?  Big bad SERPENTS HOLD.  
Big bad SERPENTS HOLD.  NIANIA's afraid of the big bad SERPENTS HOLD.  Tra la la la 
la!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  SERPENTS HOLD + Weapons That go 
Boom = HAMOI TONG + 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.   
     Well, there's the manager of the NIANIA 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.  And remember, you 
can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one 
already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Robot Chicken -- It seems like we're going to keep matching up... so far it's been an
entertaining series to me... -- Chaktiri

Lizard King -- You scallywag!  Jumping on me unexpectedly like that! -- Jiro

Convicted Assassin -- Thanks for the freebie, but you're a horrible teacher -- Ghuda

Kinthira -- Another random matchup between us, I like this matchup.  So far I'm
barely even breaking a sweat! -- Tasaio

Kestraline -- If you keep learning like that I'm going to want to stay away from you!
-- Papewaio

We salute the tourney participants, especially the ones who went as mortals,
survived, and came back to fight in Niania. -- Jorja and the Golden Fish (or are they
fishermen?)

The Jabberwock -- AAAAAH!  Next thing will be the Frumious Bandersnatch! -- Lugbruk
P.S.  I thought it was the Jabber-Walk, and it it was a martial arts style....

Tasaio -- That may have been a "handy" win for you, but it was no such thing for me!
I've never found a loss to be handy or favorable in any other way.  So there. --
Kinthira
P.S.  Though I do thank you for the skills.

Papewaio -- Vicious?  Where'd that come from?  I thought we were on good terms, maybe
even friends!  Cheese louise! -- Kestraline

Chance -- I never really trusted chance anyway.  Planning, that's the clue to
success.  Now if only I could get my manager to recognize that.... -- Korbrizt Horon

And the Captured Orc (very rude!) makes it an oh-fer turn here.  We won't be eating
"golden fish" this week, it'll be fishsticks for us. -- Elinterri
