                                      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!.  We now have a new top team for all of you guys 
to dogpile on.  CARDOW HUNTERS now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep 
it.  Hey everybody, watch out for HAMMER OF KHAROS, who flew up 22 points in the 
rankings after mashing QUEEN OFTHE RYCHE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  
Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  QUEEN OFTHE RYCHE was 
overcame by HAMMER OF KHAROS and drops 15 points.  Well, if ya don't shows up at the 
laundromat, ya can'ts wash yer clothes.  BOUTTE did not fight this week so his title 
was forfeit.  In front of all the crowds, FLYING CLOUD took the Duelmaster's crown 
for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  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 DULLENS arena.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  TINA TURNER says to hers 
dog--'Who should I fight this week?'.  Dog says 'AN INVISIBLE ENTITY'.  So the gal 
dies.  Moral?  Put lying dogs to sleep.  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 DULLENS giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can 
pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Three-two this time, and am *I* pitching a hissy fit because I lost my fight?  No!
Even though Tooth Foot is less experienced than I am, so that if I *wanted* to, I
could feel ill-used.  But I don't.  But Starsinger, who is *much* too used to
thinking of herself as a star, is all puffed up because she defeated someone with a
quarter of her fights.  Pshaw. -- Blind Owl
