                                      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.  We now have a 
new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  KRILL CAVALRY now holds the crown 
and they are betting they can keep it.  Hey everybody, watch out for KITTEN, who flew 
up 12 points in the rankings after mashing LITTLE SMIFF like a melon.  Keep your eye 
on this gal.  Well, everybody's pal ILL SUBLIMINAL moved his record to 17-10-0 by 
defeating VETERAN MERCENARY in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 2 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.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad BORN LOSERS?  Big bad BORN LOSERS.  Big bad BORN LOSERS.  ZORPUNT's afraid 
of the big bad BORN LOSERS.  Tra la la la la!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch 
GENTLE THINGS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running 
from BORN LOSERS.   
     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.  And remember, you can pick your friends 
and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown 
Spymaster

because you're ARMORED by your anxiety.  Ingenious. -- Chump Low
