                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for SHEET WITH EYES, who flew up 10 points 
in the rankings after mashing VIN DIESEL like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  
And falling like a basher in the top ten was CRAY DAIZY, who dropped 4 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with MANUTE BOL.  Going for the gusto and 
coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was THE SEWING CIRCLE's WINDMILL WILLY, who 
was turned away from the Duelmastership by HELEN KELLER.  Can you believe they are 
paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid HEROES, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does NIATOLI ISLAND really have that many 
liars?  For those of you who like math, try this one:  HEROES + Weapons That go Boom 
= HALLOWIENERS + 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, there's the manager of the NIATOLI ISLAND 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

Helen Keller and Manute Bol.  This is not news.  We have fought them before, and
doubtless we will again.  And they'll win again, which bites.  Maybe if we practiced
more...? -- Windmill Willy and CraZy Daizy

it. -- Grandma's Fan
