                                      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!.  Hey everybody, watch out for CAER SALAD, who 
flew up 13 points in the rankings after mashing AURORA MARIE like a melon.  Keep your 
eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  AURORA 
MARIE was beat by CAER SALAD and drops 10 points.  Going for the gusto and coming up 
with aught but bloody knuckles was NORTHERN LIGHTS' ERMINE, who was turned away from 
the Duelmastership by ROSELYN.  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.  Did you hear that NORTHERN LIGHTS was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of NORTHERN LIGHTS' 
warriors, I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch DARQUE FORCES' 
act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from NORTHERN 
LIGHTS.  Challenging down 32 points was RIKKU.  Pretty soon she'll be using two 
shields and selling 'T.P.:  The only way to clean up' pins.  Definition of petty:  
RIKKU bested GLITRINA, a mismatch of 32 points.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  LAPUR BISQUE defied all odds and slew 
SPYMASTER in the Dark Arena.  The only ones displeased were the buzzards, as 
SPYMASTER's meat is notoriously tough.  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?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you 
worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster

Rikku -- Clever!  You sounded like someone with a persistent cough, distracting me
into offering cough drops, and then, WHAMMO!  See if I ever offer YOU a cough drop
again. -- Aurora Marie
P.S.  And they were wild cherry, too.

Roselyn -- Graduate already. -- Ermine

Assassins, bah! -- Glitrina

Lapur Bisque -- I was all set to feast, but... I forgot about the claws.  I had no
defense when the lapur claws went snicker snack. -- Seal Dancer

Arvati Can Carne -- The cornbread defense, same as last time. -- The Winter Queen
P.S.  I suppose I should think of some alternate, since it can't be expected to work
EVERY time.  Hmm.
