                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in ZUKAL. 
Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey everybody, 
watch out for PUSS, who flew up 12 points in the rankings after mashing STEELE like a 
melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was 
STEELE, who dropped 10 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with 
PUSS.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was BLUE 
MOON's BLUE HAVEN, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by TOP CAT.  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 ZUKAL arena.  And who is 
this STEELE you ask, with 23 points and a 4-3-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell! 
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  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.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Top Cat -- You laughed.  I heard you.  Don't even TRY to tell me differently.  I'm
not DEAF, you know. -- Blue Haven

Copy Cat -- Right, and YOU did, too! -- Azurita

Xamot -- At least you weren't a cat.  And, of course, you lost, which also helps make
the fight a pleasant memory.  So, what do you say, shall we go on an adventure?
There seems to be something floating around. -- Steele

ATTENTION ALL YOU ALLIANCE-TYPE PEOPLE:
For the purposes of tourney newsletter alliance listings (when I am able to do them),
you may only be listed in ONE alliance.  In other words, you have to choose!  If you
are a part of Englebert's Alliance and Englebert's Alliance is "part" of Ruthrauf's
Alliance, I will list you EITHER as part of Englebert's Alliance OR as part of
Ruthrauf's Alliance, NOT both.  The default would be the top-level alliance,
Ruthrauf's, in this example.  If you'd rather be listed separately, let me know and I
will do so, but that will be the only listing you get. -- The Saint, keeper of ever-
more-complicated lists

The Company of Brothers (TCB) welcomes two new members to our alliance...Liam the
Goth and Buddy Lee.  We have no doubt that they will prove to be assets to our
alliance and the general dueling community. -- Baphomet, co-founder, T.C.B.
