                                      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 LITTLE DEVIL, who 
flew up 18 points in the rankings after mashing ANDILLIA like a melon.  Keep your eye 
on this gal.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  WURF was 
subdued by SPONGEBOB and drops 5 points.  Try as hard as the RAPTORS stable might, 
they were unable to find their warrior (and ex-Duelmaster) HOPE before this week's 
fights.  In front of all the crowds, SIPPYCUP SAM took the Duelmaster's crown for his 
own.  I give the bum two weeks.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a 
bigger halberd!   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Congrats to TIPPI TURTLE for revenging the death of his 
teammate (but more importantly, feeding BINKIE a bit of dirt).  Here's some advice:  
warriors with little wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  Hasta la 
bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

Hope -- That's a good job you did, soaring over me like that.  It's what birds should
do.  I like everything in its place, you see--all good dogs like things regular--and
(shrug) I'm not a Duel2Dude.  No way. -- Woofer

Larg Genius - 11 WT -- So, why didn't you learn anything, genius? -- Andillia

Spongebob -- Gosh, I was kind of surprised when you first came out.  The squelching,
you know?  But you're kind of like a wet washcloth, and I know what to do with THEM.
-- Wurf, the terror of wet washcloths everywhere
P.S.  How did you learn all that stuff?  I didn't even know it myself!

Sippycup Sam -- What's IN that cup, anyway? -- Chich-Hooey

Tantrum -- I hate fighting neutered cats.  They figure they've got nothing to lose.
(sigh)  But you taught me several useful things. -- White Fang

Cardinal -- You're welcome. -- Andillia
