                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Hey everybody, watch out for DORA BELL, who 
flew up 17 points in the rankings after mashing LEOVAR THE PROUD like a melon.  Keep 
your eye on this gal.  Well, everybody's pal PYTHAGORAS moved his record to 26-14-0 
by defeating CORIANELLE in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 6 recognition 
points.  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!   
     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, there's the manager of the RIZTAB giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The 
Unknown Spymaster

Pythagoras -- Croisants, I think.  I've considered it carefully, and it keeps coming
up croisants.  Except sometimes empanadas.  With plum preserves. -- Corianelle

Lady Deathstrike -- Ah, and how ABOUT that chocolate thing of Tina's?  I liked it
myself, although she calls me a philistine because I put ice cream on it.  What does
she know?  Ice cream is good with most desserts, even other ice cream ones.  Anybody
knows that. -- Carlotta

The Blob -- I guess I cooked that jelly just a LITTLE too long, didn't I?  I hadn't
realized it would turn into, well, a blob.  Weird.  Who could have imagined tough
jelly? -- Kissa Belle

Eurpides -- Maca-ROONS?  No way!  Egg whites and coconut, ugh. -- Dora Bell

Dreadknight -- I looked at you stepping into the arena, and for some reason what came
into my head was Rum Cake.  What the heck, I can do Rum Cake.  I wonder if it has
candied fruit in it? -- Tinakarina
