                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
JHELUM.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  F 
BALLS is no joke as it posted a 3-0-0 week advancing from 5th place to 4th place.  
Hey everybody, watch out for FOUL BALL, who flew up 20 points in the rankings after 
mashing CROOK like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it 
doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  CROOK lost to FOUL BALL and drops 13 points.  
Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was LUROCIANS Z2's 
ULTIMATE HOTTY, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by PANTHER.  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.  Did you hear that TANKS FOR NOTHIN' was 
most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of TANKS FOR 
NOTHIN''s warriors, I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch F 
BALLS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from TANKS 
FOR NOTHIN'.  And who is this MERKAVA you ask, with 86 points and a 17-22-2 record.  
Ooh, the tales I could tell!   
     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.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick 
your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Yay!  People came back!  Good to have Lurocians and F Balls back around. -- Master
Beru

Foos Ball -- I hate it when my sword breaks too.  But I must admit it helped me
immensely. -- Panther

Ultimate Hotty -- Well, you were hot enough to distract me. -- Mia

Teacher -- I guess I finally learned something. -- Merkava

To all -- Please welcome Tiger II and Persching.  They both look forward to meeting
everyone and leaving quite an 'impression'. -- Master Beru

The Prostitute -- This gets old, does it not?  Surely we can both do better, though I
will admit you came out of this last match well-taught. -- Leonidas

Ah, cheese, a Fratsfa Slave.  Red hair, too.  Red hair, well, for me it's like a red
flag for a bull, you know?  I just can't seem to help myself. -- Pete Mastiff

And on a second fight, the Fratsfa Slave is even more pathetic, if that is possible.
-- Challorn

Fur Ball -- Well, I managed to defeat you, now if I can just defeat the Evil Inputter
and get my training changed!  It's a constant struggle, some days.  Other days, of
course, it's an IN-constant struggle.  I don't play favorites, one, the other, who
cares, eh? -- Joseph
P.S.  But I would like to train some skills here.

Ultimate Pain II -- Just trying to help you feel it! -- Crook
