                                      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 VISIONS V2, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the MAN OR BEAST? 
stable.  Coming up with a solid 2-1-0 outing, CUNNING RUNTS has advanced 3 places in 
the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for ROCKY J SQUIRREL, who flew up 17 points 
in the rankings after mashing MOTHER GHEA NEWS like a melon.  Keep your eye on this 
guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  MOTHER GHEA NEWS 
was defeated by ROCKY J SQUIRREL and drops 13 points.  Our battling duelmaster NEWT 
ROCKNE has managed to hold the title, fending off DOTTLE's none too subtle advances.  
Better luck next time, VISIONS V2.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, 
so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the ZUWAYZA arena.  Did you 
hear that VISIONS V2 was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of VISIONS V2's warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo me?  
Well, unsling your rasberries, cause MAN OR BEAST? beats feet every time VISIONS V2 
smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  And who is this DOTTLE you ask, with 90 points and 
a 16-6-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Knowing when to use the right 
tactics at the proper time is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in ZUWAYZA have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Does an Initiate who dies in a tourney at 9-2 get any advantage in the Dead Tourney?
We salute Nightmare Cynic's victories and deplore its death in the midst of them. --
Jorja and the Mags

Four fights against standbys, three-one, with True Crime DYING at the hands and blade
of the Ambitious Guard.  All I can say is, it is TOTALLY fair that True Crime should
die by standby, after BOASTING about how he was so GOOD against them.  It was even
the same standby, Halstorna of Delarq Tor, Ambitious Guard, that House Beautiful
DEVASTATED.  I say, Ha, and again, HA HA. -- Modern Phrenology, reporting on the turn

If you ask ME, it's pretty darned suspicious that the Ambitious Guard is Delarquan.
He's probably a SPY, and he knew I was about to EXPOSE him! -- Ghost of True Crime
