                                      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!.  Say good-bye to SERPENT'S HOLD, as they are 
pushed from the coveted top team spot by the BLUVALLEY WARRIORS stable.  Hey 
everybody, watch out for SCALES, who flew up 20 points in the rankings after mashing 
MARCI FOOTE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't 
pay to walk out on the sands.  MARCI FOOTE lost to SCALES and drops 10 points.  Well, 
if ya don't shows up at the laundromat, ya can'ts wash yer clothes.  KEELBACK did not 
fight this week so its title was forfeit.  In front of all the crowds, CORAL took the 
Duelmaster's crown for hers own.  I give the bum two weeks.  Advice to bashers--never 
force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad BLUVALLEY  WARRIORS?  Big bad 
BLUVALLEY WARRIORS.  Big bad BLUVALLEY WARRIORS.  ARDIVENT's afraid of the big bad 
BLUVALLEY WARRIORS.  Tra la la la la!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  
BLUVALLEY WARRIORS + Weapons That go Boom = FANDILS + Avoid City.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  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.  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

Brilliant, Keelback!  Just brilliant!  What a fine DM Column.  I agree with
everything you and Khisanth said. -- Fandil The Wise

Mollie Scot -- That was a lot of fun.  I like the way you go after penance. --
Monsignor Mark

Keelback -- You are clearly my better.  That is two in a row.  "No mas!" -- Mildred
Leona

Katerina -- Wow!  Thanks for all the skills and everything.  You are sooooo generous.
-- Yvonne

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  The Red Sands await. -- Fandil The Wise

Okay, we're suffering from "end of the day's list" syndrome, meaning all the good
stuff has been skimmed off for the arenas running today that have lower numbers.  It
isn't fair, but it happens over and over again.  We'll do our best from you, even so.
-- the Bluvalley Warriors

I don't see why we should!  Three-two, with the wins over standbys and the losses to
managed gladiators--both Fandils--what have we got to talk about? -- Lila and Marci

Yvonne -- Despite those lazy bums of teammates, I will take quill in hand and address
you.  I'll even grit my teeth and be polite.  Good fight.  How's that? -- Katerina
Collin

Ruthless Jaywalker, what a thrill.  Okay, sort of a thrill there, I don't LIKE the
Jaywalker, and I enjoyed beating him up. -- Lila Deane

Well, I will admit that the Ambitious Guard was fun, too.  I have a lot of hostility
toward authority figures, you know, and he qualifies. -- Marci Foote

Monsignor Mark -- All that for ONE skill?  Talk about stingy! -- Mollie Scot

The Fratsfa Noble went "squish" when I hit him.  That was fun, sure enough. -- Long
Biggar
