                                      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.  It was a tough 
week for NOTORIOUS, to drop 6 places in the rankings.  Coming up with a solid 3-2-0 
outing, OVERKILL has advanced 7 places in the rankings.  SECRET SQUIRRELS is no joke 
as it posted a 3-1-1 week advancing from 7th place to 2nd place.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for SHADOWFIST, who flew up 24 points in the rankings after mashing JEZZA 
like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten 
was CU CHULAINN, who dropped 18 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout 
with DROGON.  Well, everybody's pal TRUST BUSTER 1 moved his record to 15-0-0 by 
defeating MUFFY STOFELES in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 10 recognition 
points.  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 ARVAT arena.  Did you 
hear that DEVIL ADVOCATES was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of DEVIL ADVOCATES' warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like 
to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause SECRET SQUIRRELS beats feet every 
time DEVIL ADVOCATES smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well dang howdy, but if 
challenges were votes, REBEKKA would be president.  Although it may be a contest she 
doesn't want to win.  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, FREY went after 
FIRMAMENT, who was higher by 25 points.  Well, when the dust settled, FREY was beat 
by FIRMAMENT.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Big deal, so SIR VEILLANCE got 
mashed in the Dark Arena.  With his face he was more at home with the trolls than 
with us. (Waka waka).  This week 13-8-0 EVIL FANTASIES was sent to the Dark Arena.  I 
know a lot of fighters with similar records who might take notice of this.  There's 
got to be more reason for the sending of EVIL FANTASIES to the Dark Arena than his 
record (13-8-0).  Anybody got any ideas CALL THE PRIEST?  It's not often when you see 
a 7-3-0 warrior like JEZZA kick the bucket.  I wonder if OTTOMAN EMPIRE will recover 
from the blow.  For those of you who missed it, Death showed up, grabbed RUNECLAW by 
the ear and took her away to a place where she won't need a coat.  Too bad BUFFY'S 
DINER won't be eating any crow this week because of MISS AMERICAN PIE's bloodfeud 
passing.  Why?  No bloodfeud, no fowl (Drumroll, Groans).  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 ARVAT giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been 
real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

All -- It has been great being here but this old man has got to leave.  My numbers
11(2)-8-9-17-21-5-15 LU, SS LO/HI ATT, for some reason Ben handed me a fishing pole
and some worms, not sure how I am suppose to lunge with this stuff. -- Sir Veillance

Devlin De Segize -- That was a good fight, you are a worthy opponent, I almost lost
that one.  Thanks for not letting me look like a chump. -- Sir V

Sampson -- You keep meeting us squirrels and you usually come out on the short end of
the stick, you might want to avoid us. -- Kami Flauge

Disemboweled Dora -- The lack of bowels made this short work, thanks. -- Oprah Tive

Good luck to all tourney participants, may you find glory and bring home TVs...we
need a 50+ inch in our guild house. -- Secret Squirrels

Sorry I have not posted any PAs the past turn or two, I have been a a leadership
school trying to learn how to manage my guys better.  Hope it was worth the money I
did not spend. -- Gentleben

I won't be surprised if I see next weeks most avoided is Angels or Devils and the
team that avoided them the most...DARK ARENA. -- Otto X

     It could happen.

Squishy Giant -- You deserved to be pasted one last time, but I decided to let you
off easy. -- Jezza

Angels and Devils -- Thanks for the welcome.  I came back after a 20+ year hiatus
last year running two warriors on a team with two others.  Thought I may as well blow
the dust off my team.  I tried to be a little inventive in my team spotlight with the
warriors Vade and Firmament, since the last time they saw action was in about 1989!
So, as far as role playing goes, they would be either really old or had been in some
kind of suspended animation.  I chose the latter...LOL  Anyway, it's great to be
back.  I have had quite a few managers give me friendly welcomes. -- Lurch

Frey -- I didn't want to challenge down that far.  I had to.  Who else was going to
avenge the death of Somebody?  Even though I could keep going, we can call it square.
Glad I didn't kill you...at least this time! -- Firmament
P.S.  You are very welcome for the trains.

Pimp in a Box -- First fight back, a matchup with "For the Godlings!", 18 points
higher.  Second fight back, Muffy Stofeles down challenges 18 points.  (Something I
don't do...)  Both are losses.  This 16 point deficit had me worried, but thankfully
I pulled it out.  After this long away from the arena I was afraid I had lost my
touch.  Thanks for the fight! -- Vade

Overkill -- Maybe you guys have finally broken the ice and are going to get some
wins.  I was thinking about putting you back where I found you...  At least we have a
couple new guys coming into the arena for you to spar with and continue to knock the
rust off...  I expect a winning record from here on! -- Lurch

Angels and Devils -- Thanks.  Hope I can do it again. -- Daikkan

Congrats to Sir Veillance and Trust Buster. -- Daikkan

Trust Buster -- I proved you wrong--you said I only had less than 20% chance of
challenging the DA and I did!  Not only that--I won for the second time on my way to
AD (aka retirement -- yes Angels and Devils, I'm partial to beaches...it's hard for
people to miss an almost 7 foot tall tan guy). -- For the Godlings

Arvat -- We are taking a short hiatus--our companion squad Call the Priest will take
over from here (hopefully literally and figuratively)! -- Notorious
