                                      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!.  A stormcloud is brewing over the ZOMBIE SQUAD 
guildhouse.  Rumor says any more weeks like this ones 0-0-0 may send the team to the 
Dark Arena.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was RED MERCURY, who dropped 8 
points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with EX OBLIVIONE.  Well, 
everybody's pal MOSQUITO moved his record to 15-7-1 by defeating PENDRU ROST in the 
Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 7 recognition points.  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.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid ZOMBIE SQUAD, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does KALTOS really have that many 
liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch TECHNOLOGY's act in the arena.  Those 
acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from ZOMBIE SQUAD.  And who is this 
SCOOTIE PUFF JR you ask, with 84 points and a 10-2-1 record.  Ooh, the tales I could 
tell!  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, SONNY went after SCOOTIE PUFF 
JR, who was higher by 18 points.  Well, when the dust settled, SONNY put to death 
SCOOTIE PUFF JR.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  It's not often when you see a 10-2-1 
warrior like SCOOTIE PUFF JR kick the bucket.  I wonder if 011510A will recover from 
the blow.  Yesterday I talked to the TECHNOLOGY's manager and MOSQUITO, slayer of 
ELECTRIC SHEEP.  The manager:  'I think I can, I think I can'.  MOSQUITO:  'I already 
did'.  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 KALTOS giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), 
oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster
