                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  We now have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  THE 
SEWING CIRCLE now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  Hey 
everybody, watch out for EATEN ALIVE!, who flew up 7 points in the rankings after 
mashing DIRTY HOWEL like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it 
doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  LAZY LOGS lost to DANGEROUS CRIMINAL and drops 
4 points.  Try as hard as the SEA DOGS stable might, they were unable to find their 
warrior (and ex-Duelmaster) SHARK BAIT before this week's fights.  In front of all 
the crowds, EATEN ALIVE! took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two 
weeks.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.  
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the NIATOLI ISLAND arena.  
Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad LIVING  HELL?  Big bad LIVING 
HELL.  Big bad LIVING HELL.  NIATOLI ISLAND's afraid of the big bad LIVING HELL.  Tra 
la la la la!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  LIVING HELL + Weapons 
That go Boom = LIVING HELL + Avoid City.   
     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 NIATOLI ISLAND 
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.  See 
ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
