                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  We now have a new top team for all of you guys 
to dogpile on.  FIRE DECK now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  
Hey everybody, watch out for MAGCARGO, who flew up 20 points in the rankings after 
mashing DEMORIN SAI like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a 
basher in the top ten was SOLDILLIA VRO, who dropped 12 points after a disappointing 
(to say the least) bout with SICK DAYS.  Well here's a duelmaster that doesn't sit 
back and say 'Challenge me'!  ENTEI made a challenge against JELLY BELLY this week.  
Our battling duelmaster ENTEI has managed to hold the title, fending off JELLY 
BELLY's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, SHEWISH CANDY.  An apple a 
day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid FIRE DECK, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does CLIFFHOME really have that many 
liars?  For those of you who like math, try this one:  FIRE DECK + Weapons That go 
Boom = BASH BROS CHILDREN + Avoid City.  And who is this BLAZIKEN you ask, with 71 
points and a 7-0-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  SHOTS of ONE TOO MANY had 
better have a good reason for challenging down 10 points in a challenge which he won. 
I thought SHOTS showed great skill and promise when he subdued MENDARLIN VORO.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  We might as well mark the passing of JOJEN, who was 
relatively new to the arena at 3-2-0.  Probably killed before its first shave.  Ask 
not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in CLIFFHOME have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!--

Bad Ideas -- Assur has plenty of those.  His current plan now matches his original
plan for me...  to fight in DM 84. -- Bedtime

Jelly Belly -- You've made my kids sick so many times.  Any wonder that I've avoided
you? -- Sick Days

One-four, which means *I* get to do The Personal today, because I won.  And not even
over a standby.  Which, now that I think about it, were thin on the ground here
today.  They're fatter when they stand up.  Should we start a weight-watchers group
that recommends lying down on the ground?  It'd have to be seasonal. -- Demorin Sai
