                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Say good-bye 
to DREAMERS, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the WHO DA MAN? 
stable.  Advancing in the rankings was BLUE NOTE who went from last turn's 144-140-6, 
to this week's record of 147-141-6.  Hey everybody, watch out for STRYCHNINE, who 
flew up 21 points in the rankings after mashing CHARLENE like a melon.  Keep your eye 
on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was CHARLENE, who dropped 19 
points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with STRYCHNINE.  Drawing on all 
of hers experience as a 12-8-0 warrior, ARIGNOTE went for the Duelmastership against 
MARTYR this week.  It's a proud day for the DREAMERS stable, as their warrior, 
ARIGNOTE, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  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 KAOS FROGS was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of KAOS FROGS' warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you who like math, 
try this one:  KAOS FROGS + Weapons That go Boom = WHO DA MAN? + Avoid City.  And who 
is this AMMONIUS you ask, with 117 points and a 19-22-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I 
could tell!  Was it guts or an overtaxed mental capacity that had YODA MAN challenge 
up 36 points in the rankings to take on AMMONIUS?  This week YODA MAN 10-48-0 fought 
AMMONIUS 19-22-0 and in losing gained 1 points.  I know several gladiators who could 
go for a few fights like that.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  KORYNN FROG defied all odds and 
slew DEMRON THE DARK in the Dark Arena.  The only ones displeased were the buzzards, 
as DEMRON THE DARK's meat is notoriously tough.  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.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real 
fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Our congratulations to Korynn Frog. -- Jorja and the Sweet Magic team
P.S.  I just saw a picture of a "flying frog" (it glides rather than flies).  Do you
do anything like that?

Two-three again, but at least we are RID of that pest Grubstaker.  He kept wanting
corned beef hash.  Gah. -- Charlene

     Nothing wrong with corned beef hash.

Joy of Losing -- I didn't enjoy that! -- ghost of Grubstaker
P.S.  See if I ever teach YOU five skills again!
