                                      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 RED SPECIAL, who flew up 20 points in the rankings after mashing 
WILKERSON like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't 
pay to walk out on the sands.  WILKERSON was subdued by RED SPECIAL and drops 17 
points.  Well, if ya don't shows up at the laundromat, ya can'ts wash yer clothes.  
BICYCLE RACE did not fight this week so his title was forfeit.  In front of all the 
crowds, WATSON took the Duelmaster's crown for hers own.  I give the bum two weeks.  
An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad RED FURY?  Big bad RED FURY.  
Big bad RED FURY.  ZUKAL's afraid of the big bad RED FURY.  Tra la la la la!  For 
those of you who like math, try this one:  RED FURY + Weapons That go Boom = 
PAPERBOYS + Avoid City.  And who is this WATSON you ask, with 103 points and a 12-3-0 
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 ZUKAL have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Well!  I was GOING to say, I could be the Unchartered Recognition Leader, since
nobody ELSE was showing up for the position, but then I looked and realized that I'm
over ten fights, too.  So I can't, and you missed a great representative in me. --
Chantal

For the rest, we went two-two, which isn't so bad when you consider that we did not
fight ONE SINGLE STANDBY.  Managed opponents all the way. -- Chantal
P.S.  Of course, our new teammate managed not to show up.  What a slacker!
