                                      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!.  Coming up with a solid 1-3-0 outing, RYAN'S 
HENCHMEN has advanced 4 places in the rankings.  Advancing in the rankings was THE 
GRATEFUL UNDEAD who went from last turn's 184-194-12, to this week's record of 
187-195-12.  Hey everybody, watch out for GARY, who flew up 21 points in the rankings 
after mashing BOATSWAIN like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days 
it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  BOATSWAIN was subdued by GARY and drops 15 
points.  Drawing on all of hers experience as a 20-22-1 warrior, THE CODDLER went for 
the Duelmastership against CLOVER this week.  In front of all the crowds, THE CODDLER 
took the Duelmaster's crown for hers own.  I give the bum two weeks.  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 TALCAMA arena.  Did you 
hear that CENTER FOR OLDS was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of CENTER FOR OLDS' warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like 
to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause OF WOLF AND MAN II beats feet every 
time CENTER FOR OLDS smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well dang howdy, but if 
challenges were votes, LOCAR would be president.  Although it may be a contest he 
doesn't want to win.  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, ANONYMISSUS went 
after LOCAR, who was higher by 24 points.  Well, when the dust settled, ANONYMISSUS 
won victory over LOCAR.  BIG PIMPIN' IMP of THE GRATEFUL UNDEAD had better have a 
good reason for challenging down 11 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought 
BIG PIMPIN' IMP showed great skill and promise when he subdued KRUSK.  All right, so 
I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  PLANKTON defied all odds and slew HIGH ELF in the Dark 
Arena.  The only ones displeased were the buzzards, as HIGH ELF'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.   
     Well, there's the manager of the TALCAMA giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  See ya next time 
I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster
