                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for CHARLES RANGEL, who flew up 21 points in 
the rankings after mashing CONFUSION like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And 
falling like a basher in the top ten was LITTLE WORLD, who dropped 11 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with CIVILIZED CRIMINAL.  It's a proud day for 
the THE DEMOCRATS stable, as their warrior, ROE V WADE, ascended the Duelmaster's 
throne.  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.  And hey, 
kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid ARE YOU ?, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does 
SOLVEN really have that many liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch THE 
MENTORS GORE's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running 
from ARE YOU ?.  Well just about everybody wants a piece of ALIEN, who was this 
week's most challenged warrior.   
     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?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

We salute the participants in the mail-in tourney with a special cheer for Second
Mate, tourney victor. -- Jorja and those who walk the Middle Way

One-four, how awful.  With the only win being Julian frying Chunky.  Er, Chucky.  Oh,
well. -- Nyssa Rye
P.S.  No standbys for US, of course.  Bah.
P.P.S.  And I suppose I should note that Fire just burned Howie up.  Well, that's
what Howie gets for signing in as "Howie B. Gone."  How did he EXPECT the fates to
take that?
