                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
NIATOLI ISLAND.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid! 
DUELMASTERS BUFFET is no joke as it posted a 5-0-0 week advancing from 2nd place to 
2nd place.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was GENOVYFA, who dropped 4 
points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with IMMORAL DESIRE.  It's a 
proud day for the F/X stable, as their warrior, SSSINK!, ascended the Duelmaster's 
throne.  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 hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid F/X, please raise you hand.  Wow.  
Does NIATOLI ISLAND really have that many liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but 
catch BIG LAKE BANDITS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at 
running from F/X.  And who is this BYL BONESNAPPER you ask, with 76 points and a 
18-19-3 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  In a touching display by a 'touched' 
warrior, MR. ANIMAL CRACKERS went after CLASS CLOWN, who was higher by 18 points.  
Well, when the dust settled, MR. ANIMAL CRACKERS overcame CLASS CLOWN.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Congrats to VIXEN for revenging the death of hers teammate 
(but more importantly, feeding BYL BONESNAPPER a bit of dirt).  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.  And remember, you can pick your friends 
and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown 
Spymaster
