                                      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!  We now have a 
new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  SEA DOGS now holds the crown and 
they are betting they can keep it.  Hey everybody, watch out for EIGHTH MATE, who 
flew up 17 points in the rankings after mashing KINGFISHER like a melon.  Keep your 
eye on this gal.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was KINGFISHER, who 
dropped 14 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with EIGHTH MATE.  
Our battling duelmaster SEA LEGS has managed to hold the title, fending off BLHU 
MURTHER's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, BLUE MOON.  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!   
     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.  Its been real, and its been fun, 
but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

     There has been a run lately of personals and columns turning up in the wrong
     arenas.  When you email in something, check and make sure you have the correct
     arena number!  It's easy for a finger to slip onto the wrong key.  When the
     receipt comes back, check again to be sure it went where you intended!
     Vigilance is your friend, and mine too. -- the Editor
