                                      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.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for ROCKJAW, who flew up 24 points in the rankings after mashing NORTHERN 
PALADIN like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the 
top ten was NORTHERN PALADIN, who dropped 17 points after a disappointing (to say the 
least) bout with ROCKJAW.  In front of all the crowds, KELDON WARLORD 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.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid WAY OF THE SWORD A3, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does RODEKI really have that 
many liars?  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause COLOR 
ME SUAVE beats feet every time WAY OF THE SWORD A3 smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  
Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, RED SKELTON would be president.  
Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.  Getting lots of flowers from 
sympathetic fans was LA CHISELLE, who was successfully challenged by ADASHIR who had 
a mere 50 points more than LA CHISELLE.  Definition of petty:  ADASHIR overcame LA 
CHISELLE, a mismatch of 50 points.   
     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.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  See ya 
next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Red Skelton -- What?  You don't like being under ground?  And you such a short guy,
too. -- The Mole

Northern Paladin -- Damned orc! -- Handsome Does, but not if it's orcs

Frankenbutt -- Butt-ugly. -- La Chiselle

Four of Spades -- It's just WRONG for a dwarf to be six feet two inches tall.  It
makes me ill just thinking about it! -- Rockjaw

Running into a Wall -- GREAT move!  Do it again. -- Fredibar

Su-Chi -- (sternly)  You might be, if you're not careful. -- The Mole

Lord Protector Keldon Warlord -- So, as noted three months ago, we are hard put to it
to find "lands" for our Lord Protectors.  Good thing we don't have many!  Anyway,
here are your options:
     You still have a chance, since your predecessor didn't take it, to own a share
in the Dirty Sock Mine.  It will need pumping out, mind you, and we make no promises
for the quality of the ore if you DO get it pumped out, but that's life.  One gamble
after another.
     A modest war, not much fanfare, but plenty of fighting.  You appear to have a
choice of killing either elves or Rirorni.  Or, of course, being killed by them.
     Or a free ticket on the Shuttle to the Isle.
          Your choice. -- Torba Val, Arena Manager

It is with a proud heart that I announce the newest member of the Desolate Empire

flow freely! -- The Dark Knights Wasby and Toker
