                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
CHIMLEVTAL.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  We 
now have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  THE STORM REAVERS now 
holds the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  Coming up with a solid 5-0-0 
outing, THE STORM REAVERS has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for NILE PARTON, who flew up 28 points in the rankings after mashing AMUR 
like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  And falling like a basher in the top ten 
was DUTIFUL, who dropped 18 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with 
THRALL.  In front of all the crowds, VENGEANCE took the Duelmaster's crown for his 
own.  I give the bum two weeks.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a 
bigger halberd!   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
And who is this LUMUS NELP you ask, with 41 points and a 6-22-1 record.  Ooh, the 
tales I could tell!  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, GROM HELLSCREAM 
went after LUMUS NELP, who was higher by 19 points.  Well, when the dust settled, 
GROM HELLSCREAM overcame LUMUS NELP.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Yesterday I talked to the JUST DESSERTS' 
manager and XANDAR, slayer of URN4A TREAT!.  The manager:  'I think I can, I think I 
can'.  XANDAR:  'I already did'.  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 CHIMLEVTAL 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

I should fire these guys.  I look at the miniovers, and I see, among five so-called
warriors, a couple of whom have been active close to two years now, TWO and only two
ratings.  Are they fighting with their eyes closed?  Don't answer that, by their
records, yes, they are.... -- Jorja the disgruntled

Welcome to the Stone Crows and Lobo. -- Jorja
P.S.  They tell me things get better, but you couldn't prove it by my current roster.

Grom Hellscream -- Ah, always tricky to start out with a "tough" name.  Sure, it
gives you something to live up--and it sets most of the other gladiators in the arena
the task of proving you don't deserve it.  Tricky, like I said. -- Lumus Nelp, not
laboring under a "tough" name, and a good thing, too

Amur -- Who or what do you avenge?  Inquiring minds wonder. -- Mandin Orwell, proud
possessor of one of the team's two ratings.

Ahuroa -- I thought at first your name was going to be "Aurora," and I guess the
steward did, too.  While he was figuring out that it wasn't, whammo.  Down I went.
Good fight, I guess, not that I remember much of it. -- Rondor Sendal

The Osksi Noble was easy, and I'm not complaining.  A little "easy" now and then just
makes my day. -- Nile Parton

Aezlynn Rush -- Well, THAT was embarrassing.  Well done. -- Panda Ross
