                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  We now have a 
new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  DOGS OF WAR now holds the crown and 
they are betting they can keep it.  Coming up with a solid 1-0-1 outing, TEERAK HA 
has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for PUY, who flew up 
23 points in the rankings after mashing WAR AND PEACE like a melon.  Keep your eye on 
this gal.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  MAT'ARI was 
subdued by CRIME AND PUNISHMENT and drops 13 points.  Going for the gusto and coming 
up with aught but bloody knuckles was DOGS OF WAR's RED HAMMER, who was turned away 
from the Duelmastership by ARMITAGE.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an 
onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were 
votes, RED HAMMER would be president.  Although it may be a contest he doesn't want 
to win.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Carrion Bird Cinematic Humor:  WAR AND PEACE II:  THE 
REMATCH.  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 JHELUM 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
