     "Well, fry me for a--  Look!"  Gorlon Inthur shook the newsletter at his
teammates.  "We made Top Team!"
     "Good!  That'll look good on our resumes," Dejanna Kalm said.
     "No, it is NOT good."  Gorlon threw the paper onto the fire.  "Don't you
remember the new directive?  Make Top Team, do a spotlight."
     "Here?"  Lynnis Nall stared around the shabby guildhouse.  "Who'd read it?"
     "No, he's right," Dejanna said.  "It was in the fine print:  No excuses on the
grounds of a lack of other teams."
     "Seems reasonable," Fedora Linde said.  "After all, if there were a lot of other
teams active, we probably wouldn't have made Top Team."
     There was a long silence while the gladiators contemplated this, each agreeing
but unwilling to say it out loud.  That would make it too real.

                                      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.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for GORLON INTHUR, who flew up 35 points in the rankings after mashing 
LUGER like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to 
walk out on the sands.  LUGER was subdued by GORLON INTHUR and drops 60 points.  
Well, everybody's pal JULES moved hers record to 15-2-1 by defeating HEN OF DEATH in 
the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 8 recognition points.  An apple a day keeps 
the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Did you hear that HENPCS was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of HENPCS' warriors, I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but 
catch SERPENTS HOLD's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at 
running from HENPCS.   
     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 SOLVEN 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.  Its been real, 
and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster
