                                      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.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for RED MERCURY, who flew up 30 points in the rankings after mashing LEORA 
NOEVAL like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay 
to walk out on the sands.  MS GOODBODY was defeated by TERTIUS and drops 21 points.  
Try as hard as the ZOMBIE SQUAD stable might, they were unable to find their warrior 
(and ex-Duelmaster) RAVEN before this week's fights.  In front of all the crowds, 
SOLITAIRE took the Duelmaster's crown for hers own.  I give the bum two weeks.  4 out 
of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.  
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the KALTOS arena.  Did you 
hear that ZOMBIE SQUAD was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of ZOMBIE SQUAD's warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo me?  
Well, unsling your rasberries, cause JAMES BONDAGE beats feet every time ZOMBIE SQUAD 
smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well just about everybody wants a piece of JUST 
LOSIN, who was this week's most challenged warrior.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  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.  Okay, so I may not be the world's best comedian, 
but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  See ya next time I'm on this 
circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster
