                                      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!.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was 
CROSSTOWN TRAFFIC, who dropped 12 points after a disappointing (to say the least) 
bout with MAULT LIQUOR.  Our battling duelmaster SSG4 has managed to hold the title, 
fending off CONFUSION's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, 80'S DISCO. 
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 SOLVEN arena.  Here's a 
song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad AH FATHERHOOD?  Big bad AH FATHERHOOD.  
Big bad AH FATHERHOOD.  SOLVEN's afraid of the big bad AH FATHERHOOD.  Tra la la la 
la!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause MAULS LOCAL 
457 beats feet every time AH FATHERHOOD smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well dang 
howdy, but if challenges were votes, IRSON ORSON would be president.  Although it may 
be a contest he doesn't want to win.  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, 
SSG 8 went after IRSON ORSON, who was higher by 22 points.  Well, when the dust 
settled, SSG 8 won victory over IRSON ORSON.   
     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, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in SOLVEN have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  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
