                                      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 GAMES LIBRARY, as they are pushed from the coveted 
top team spot by the GENERATION X stable.  For every winner there is a loser.  
Speaking of losers, lets take a look at GAMES LIBRARY, who went down to 1st from 5th. 
Life is tough.  Advancing in the rankings was GENERATION X who went from last turn's 
261-221-21, to this week's record of 264-222-21.  Hey everybody, watch out for WHIFF, 
who flew up 17 points in the rankings after mashing MERISANDARA TIRON like a melon.  
Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the 
sands.  HYPE MACHINE was subdued by KUNG-FU MASTER and drops 12 points.  Going for 
the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was GAMES LIBRARY's 
VELOVORINSAL NORS, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by PERCIATELLI.  4 out 
of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.  
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad AESIR?  Big bad AESIR.  Big bad AESIR.  OSKSI's afraid of the big bad AESIR. 
Tra la la la la!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  AESIR + Weapons That 
go Boom = VEGGIES + Avoid City.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Big deal, so NOODLES got mashed in the Dark Arena.  With 
his face he was more at home with the trolls than with us. (Waka waka).  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 OSKSI have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  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

Nancy -- I dunno, I just got the feeling of shyness from you.  How about you prove me
wrong by jumping my bones? -- Eldaristan Faro

Junk Food -- I'm always ready for junk food.  Bring it to me, and I'll pig it down.
-- Kandaresron Varn

Nancy -- Who wants boiled water, anyway?  Not filling. -- Kandaresron Varn

Hype Machine -- That you're "slim" may be the hype here. -- Velovorinsal Nors
P.S.  Mind you, I don't say you're fat, just, um, substantial.  Solid.
P.P.S.  Although you might count as "slim" for a dwarf.

Fentanayl -- I have so much trouble spelling your name (it's been THAT kind of day)
that I don't have any left over to fight with. -- Eldaristan Faro

Junkfood Junkie -- Chocolate?  Twinkies?  Those can't be junk food! -- Merisandara
Tiron

Brunhilde -- I was doing fine till you opened your mouth and started to sing.  Then I
had to pull up my socks and get the fight OVER with.  Never could stand grand opera.
-- Kandaresron Varn

Nancy -- Really, you should be on OUR team.  With that record, you'd fit right in. --
Melondarion Noris
