                                      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.  It looks like 
the guys(?) at MIRACLE WORKSHOP had a good week as they went 3-0-0 to put them in 4th 
place.  I guess steroids help!  Hey everybody, watch out for HOLY VIRGIN BLOOD, who 
flew up 22 points in the rankings after mashing PINGU like a melon.  Keep your eye on 
this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was PINGU, who dropped 20 points 
after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with HOLY VIRGIN BLOOD.  What does the 
Duelmaster and Piltdown Man have in common?  They are both the most challenged apes 
in human history!  Heyheyhey!  JACOB MARLEY got through to the Duelmaster this turn.  
No doubt he was more than anxious to kick OPTIMUS PRIME's tail out of the throne!  
Isn't that life?  One minute you're on top of the world and then next you're laid out 
on a slab!  OPTIMUS PRIME was slain by JACOB MARLEY.  Say no more.  An apple a day 
keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Did you hear that MUTANT HAMMERZ was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of MUTANT HAMMERZ's warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you 
who like math, try this one:  MUTANT HAMMERZ + Weapons That go Boom = PHANTOM 
REGIMENT + Avoid City.  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, PROWLER went 
after DESTRO, who was higher by 23 points.  Well, when the dust settled, PROWLER 
defeated DESTRO.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Carrion Bird Cinematic Humor:  
SEBASTIAN HAMMER II:  THE REMATCH.  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.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

I note that there are no graduates "in the ice chute," which is good.  The "Goodies
for Graduates" program is lurching around again, and I have been, unwillingly, stuck
with administering it here in Stormcrowe.  Not because I want to, mind you, but who
else is there?  Give me a few months to figure out what might be available before you
start graduating, please. -- Arenamaster Nhor
