                                      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 BENEZIA, who flew up 15 points in the rankings after mashing JARAXLE 
like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk 
out on the sands.  GLITRINA was defeated by CELESTIAL ROSE and drops 6 points.  Our 
last turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to KHALHUMS DWARF, and ANDROMEDA has 
made the way for a new Duelmaster!  With ANDROMEDA clearing the throne, DARQUE FORCES 
of ROSELYN takes a proud seat as STORMCROWE's new Duelmaster, by virtue of 
recognition points.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and 
avoid aiming at that location.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
And who is this AURORA MARIE you ask, with 44 points and a 8-8-0 record.  Ooh, the 
tales I could tell!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  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 STORMCROWE 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.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya 
bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

I am known as Draken, and I'm the manager of the Death Knights.  We have big plans
for this arena.  A lot of Blood, sweat, and tears.  So guard yourselves well.  And,
GOOD Luck!  For the time has come for the clash of steel upon steel.  May the Gods
see fit to let only the strong prevail. -- Draken

Yuma... excuse us, Yunalesca -- Congratulations on going out with a win. -- Jorja and
the Northern Lights

Celestial Rose -- Ah, but you're so fascinating.  It takes an orc like me to
appreciate an elven beauty like you. -- White Bear

That Captured Orc did NOT make my socks roll up and down.  I can do without him fine,
although the win is good. -- Aurora Marie

The Ambitious Guard is a silly boy. -- Glitrina

I had it in for the Osksi Noble, okay?  It was personal.  But it was NOT an
assassination.  There was no money involved. -- Iapere

And the retread Osksi Noble I got was hardly up for anything. -- Avalanche
