                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
MALCORN.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Say 
good-bye to THE GRAIL KNIGHTS, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by 
the GREENWARDENS stable.  Coming up with a solid 4-1-1 outing, GREENWARDENS has 
advanced 3 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for BADGER, who flew up 
30 points in the rankings after mashing SLEEPY HOUSE like a melon.  Keep your eye on 
this guy.  Well here's a duelmaster that doesn't sit back and say 'Challenge me'!  
SIR TOO DUMB made a challenge against WREN this week.  It's a proud day for the 
GREENWARDENS stable, as their warrior, WREN, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  An 
apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the MALCORN arena.  Did you 
hear that BLIND MELON was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of BLIND MELON's warriors, I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may not be funny, 
but catch THE GRAIL KNIGHTS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft 
at running from BLIND MELON.  And who is this WREN you ask, with 110 points and a 
19-32-1 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  It's not often when you see a 15-10-1 
warrior like SLEEPY HOUSE kick the bucket.  I wonder if BLIND MELON will recover from 
the blow.  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.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Odd, I've never found people over-fond of change, and yet Change is the Popularity
Leader and Favorite.  It must be a sign of something.

One-four, it's no wonder we appeared on the Teams On The Move list as going down.
But that's what people always say, "What goes up must come down."  Sounds to me more
like an excuse than an explanation, but what do I know? -- Badger
P.S.  I see that I was most challenged.  This does not make my socks roll up and
down, but I guess it's an honor.
P.P.S.  As a team, we taught something like sixteen skills, AGAIN, and only learned
three.  Unbalanced.
