                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for VLAD THE IMPALER, who flew up 15 points 
in the rankings after mashing YAREK ZURN like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  
Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  SALARA LORMIN was 
subdued by DANGEROUS CRIMINAL and drops 10 points.  Try as hard as the DEATH 
INCARNATE stable might, they were unable to find their warrior (and ex-Duelmaster) 
VERCINGETORIX before this week's fights.  It's a proud day for the DEATH INCARNATE 
stable, as their warrior, THE RED BARON, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  Can you 
believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad DEATH  INCARNATE?  Big bad DEATH 
INCARNATE.  Big bad DEATH INCARNATE.  ALJAFIR's afraid of the big bad DEATH 
INCARNATE.  Tra la la la la!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  DEATH 
INCARNATE + Weapons That go Boom = GLADIATORS + Avoid City.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  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 ALJAFIR 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.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Vercingetorix -- I should have expected that.  Well, I probably did, knowing how
little competition there is at the top, but I didn't want to remember it.  You know
how it goes.  Oh, well. -- Grishort Hurm

Germanicus -- What a student. -- Yarek Zurn

Tiberius -- Ah, next time, YOU can fight Vercingetorix. -- Zalman Arvo

Take that, Dangerous Criminal.  No, wait, you already took that, which is why they
call you a criminal.  Huh. -- Salara Lormin

I do wonder about that Guard's Ambitions.  What does he think he'll be able to do? --

Jack the Ripper's graduating with eleven regular arena fights?  Must be a lot of
