                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Say good-bye to TRIBE, as they are pushed from the coveted top team 
spot by the SHEWISH BUFFET stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for CLAY POOLE, who flew 
up 17 points in the rankings after mashing AMBITIOUS GUARD like a melon.  Keep your 
eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  THE 
DIABOLICAL was overcame by SERGEANT 9 and drops 12 points.  Well, everybody's pal 
CHILI CON CARNAGE moved his record to 9-1-1 by defeating POGO POLEN in the 
Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 9 recognition points.  4 out of 5 gladiators 
surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Here is other news that is of note.   
     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 ZORPUNT have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it 
(boos).  Now that I've got you worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The 
Unknown Spymaster

Shewish Buffet -- Oh, yes, DO give all those sergeants a severe buffet! -- Pearl
Stone

We salute the tourney participants, with a special nod for the long-departed John
Ashcroft and Huge Twirling Man, tourney victors. -- Jorja and the Krill Cavalry

An oh-fer turn.  This is the second arena today where Jorja's team has gone oh-fer.
She says--she actually has the NERVE to say to us--that this is probably a GOOD
THING!  Because it means that "there's more than just standbys out there again."
Bah. -- Pearl Stone

Chili Con Carnage -- Wow!  I think I want some sour cream on that.  Whew. -- Pogo
Polen
P.S.  But it was good, when I got it cooled down to the point where I could actually
taste it.

Hero Sandwich -- If you expect me to simper and say, "My hero!" you can just expect
again.  Or, as Debby Tonte would say, As if! -- T-Jon Loy

Sergeant 6 -- I hope you get chillblains on your buff! -- Pearl Stone

The Diabolical -- That says it. -- Clay Poole

Phony Rapper -- Is that like, maybe, wrapping your burrito in a lettuce leaf?
Totally not satisfying, let me tell you! -- Little Smiff
