                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Say good-bye 
to SHEPHERDS, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the CENTER FOR 
OLDS stable.  A stormcloud is brewing over the DEVIL'S DEN guildhouse.  Rumor says 
any more weeks like this ones 0-0-0 may send the team to the Dark Arena.  Coming up 
with a solid 4-1-0 outing, SEA DOGS has advanced 4 places in the rankings.  Hey 
everybody, watch out for DEAN DARWIN, who flew up 18 points in the rankings after 
mashing DOC TURTLE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it 
doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  CARBONATED MILK was defeated by LIGHTHOUSE 
KEEPER and drops 12 points.  In front of all the crowds, HARBOR MASTER took the 
Duelmaster's crown for hers own.  I give the bum two weeks.  Can you believe they are 
paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad CENTER FOR OLDS?  Big bad CENTER FOR OLDS.  Big bad CENTER FOR OLDS.  
TALCAMA's afraid of the big bad CENTER FOR OLDS.  Tra la la la la!  And you guys like 
to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause SHEPHERDS beats feet every time 
CENTER FOR OLDS smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well dang howdy, but if challenges 
were votes, FUNKMASTER FLEX would be president.  Although it may be a contest he 
doesn't want to win.   
     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.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Okay, so I may not be the world's best comedian, 
but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud 
choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster
