                                      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.  We now have a 
new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  CRIMINAL ELEMENT now holds the crown 
and they are betting they can keep it.  Hey everybody, watch out for BEOWULF, who 
flew up 21 points in the rankings after mashing MANN SLAUGHTER like a melon.  Keep 
your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was MANN SLAUGHTER, 
who dropped 15 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with BEOWULF.  
Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to COLLABORATOR, BUT QUIA RAYNE is still the 
Duelmaster because she has the most recognition points!  Advice to bashers--never 
force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid THE MIDDLE WAY, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does XOCHITHLAN really have that 
many liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch LITERATI's act in the arena.  
Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from THE MIDDLE WAY.  And who is 
this KAHR, JACK you ask, with 46 points and a 10-10-1 record.  Ooh, the tales I could 
tell!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Knowing when to use the right tactics at the proper time 
is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The 
Unknown Spymaster
