                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
RIZTAB.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  For 
every winner there is a loser.  Speaking of losers, lets take a look at ALL HALLOW'S 
EVE, who went down to 7th from 13th.  Life is tough.  Coming up with a solid 3-1-0 
outing, THE LAWMEN has advanced 7 places in the rankings.  Most new teams do poorly 
at first.  ERRATA, however, has gotten off to a reasonable start at 2-2-0.  Nice job! 
Hey everybody, watch out for MARIGOLD, who flew up 17 points in the rankings after 
mashing RAGNAROK like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  And falling like a basher 
in the top ten was RAGNAROK, who dropped 9 points after a disappointing (to say the 
least) bout with MARIGOLD.  Unlike most arenas, AGLIBOL managed to get his challenge 
off against the 17-12-1 DASTARDLY DAN.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught 
but bloody knuckles was HIGH JINKS' DASTARDLY DAN, who was turned away from the 
Duelmastership by AGLIBOL.  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 RIZTAB arena.  Did you 
hear that DARKMOON was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of DARKMOON's warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo me?  
Well, unsling your rasberries, cause HIGH JINKS beats feet every time DARKMOON smiles 
at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, DASTARDLY 
DAN would be president.  Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.  STANK 
SHANK of BLOODSUCKERS had better have a good reason for challenging down 13 points in 
a challenge which he won.  I thought STANK SHANK showed great skill and promise when 
he won victory over SHELLI.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  This week 7-9-0 LUNG ROCKET was 
sent to the Dark Arena.  I know a lot of fighters with similar records who might take 
notice of this.  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 RIZTAB have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  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

How much do experience "points" count as compared ta learned skills?  Half as much?

marketable skills any old day. -- Applejack

Kaja-Rang -- But he didn't leave a message. -- Tillerita

Namby Pamby -- (very gloomily)  I knew it would be like this, the minute Jorja said I

As if! -- Alourshin

Tillerita -- Ouch!!  Enough already.  Sheesh, what an Orc! -- Kaja Rang

Diaretic -- A 429--huh.  I'm a 441 myself.  I figure you've got about four or so in
