                                      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.  SENTINELS now holds the crown and 
they are betting they can keep it.  Coming up with a solid 5-0-0 outing, SENTINELS 
has advanced 5 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for ALPHONSO BLACK, 
who flew up 26 points in the rankings after mashing QUEENIE like a melon.  Keep your 
eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  KONA 
KATE was defeated by BARILOCHE and drops 16 points.  Unlike most arenas, CHAINSAW 
CHUCK managed to get his challenge off against the 0-0-0 ARENAMASTER ILHUME'.  The 
crowds were amazed this turn, as ARENAMASTER ILHUME' killed the Duelmaster, CHAINSAW 
CHUCK, leaving TOOL SHED in mourning.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just 
get a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad TOOL SHED?  Big bad TOOL SHED.  Big bad TOOL SHED.  BONSUR's afraid of the 
big bad TOOL SHED.  Tra la la la la!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch 
SENTINELS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from 
TOOL SHED.  And who is this SAW HORSE you ask, with 26 points and a 5-5-0 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 BONSUR have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  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

Oh sure, we miss a couple of turns and instead of some sort of "welcome back!" we get
a smack upside the head with a scimitar!  1-4!  What else can you expect from a bunch
of gladiators?  We wanted to do the smacking!  Oh well, at least in Bonsur one can
always rely on the quality of the smash, if not the quality of the gladiators. --
Sentinels

Chuck -- Okay, that smacking I expected.  But when you get a chance at the title, you
have to go for it!  And I went for it.  And the opporunity left nasty bruises.
Congrats on the titles--both new and old!  I lift a mug o'smash in your honor! --
Bariloche

Paula -- As much as the boss likes seeing competition here, I would have preferred it
if you had simply remained on the tournament circuit. -- Orsinius

Queenie -- Ouch.  That just isn't right. -- Etugen Khan

Saw Horse -- Well, ONE of us had to win!  After that, I might even have convinced the
boss to give me a shot at the tournament. -- Alphonso Black

Chainsaw Chuck -- No, I wasn't *looking* for a rematch, and it didn't come my way.
So be it.  Travel well. -- Kona Kate

Chainsaw Chuck -- We all congratulate you. -- Jorja and the Beach Babes

Eileen -- What's a kid like you doing jumping into trouble that way?  It's insane. --
Redondo Rhonda

Escher -- You make me dizzy. -- Luau Lila
P.S.  Or maybe it's the rum punch, but I don't think so.  I think it's you.

Well, M. Chardinee was polite, but that's about all I can say for the fight. -- Kona
Kate

Etugen Khan -- I think our handicapper is biased against elves. -- Queenie

The Khalhums Dwarf is DEFINITELY biased against elves. -- Sarah Sundance
