                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
TALCAMA.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Say 
good-bye to RYAN'S HENCHMEN, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the 
SHEPHERDS stable.  It was a tough week for ARDUIN GRIMOIRE, to drop 4 places in the 
rankings.  Coming up with a solid 4-1-0 outing, SHEPHERDS has advanced 3 places in 
the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for PETE, who flew up 25 points in the 
rankings after mashing DERRY DARLIN like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya 
know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  DERRY DARLIN lost to PETE 
and drops 20 points.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody 
knuckles was CENTER FOR OLDS' CHATROOMMATE, who was turned away from the 
Duelmastership by BABY ON BOARD.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a 
bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that RYAN'S HENCHMEN was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of RYAN'S HENCHMEN's 
warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  RYAN'S 
HENCHMEN + Weapons That go Boom = SHEPHERDS + 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.   
     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.  Its been 
real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Derry Darlin -- Assur has been encouraging me my entire career, saying that whenever
I face a Lunger, I'll get the wins that I so dearly need to reach has and my goals.
Now he's saying  there are some who are good enough to beat me, namely those who are
like you.  What am I to believe,  now that things I took as truth are no longer true?
