                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Hey everybody, watch out for THE IMPECCABLE 
PIG, who flew up 20 points in the rankings after mashing HOFFA like a melon.  Keep 
your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was HOFFA, who 
dropped 15 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with THE IMPECCABLE 
PIG.  In front of all the crowds, FREDERICK DOUGLASS took the Duelmaster's crown for 
his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, 
so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad I'M HISTORY?  Big bad I'M 
HISTORY.  Big bad I'M HISTORY.  KALTOS' afraid of the big bad I'M HISTORY.  Tra la la 
la la!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch LARGE LOSERS' act in the arena.  Those 
acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from I'M HISTORY.  And who is this HOFFA 
you ask, with 91 points and a 8-67-0 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.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in KALTOS 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.  Its been 
fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you worked up for Snide 
Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster

Zakau -- You.  (sigh)  Hi. -- Erloi Gill
