                                      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.  We now have a 
new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  WE GOT GAME now holds the crown and 
they are betting they can keep it.  Hey everybody, watch out for LOUIS CHAUVIN, who 
flew up 21 points in the rankings after mashing CHYNARAE like a melon.  Keep your eye 
on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was PIGPEN, who dropped 13 
points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with THE MAIDEN.  Going for the 
gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was DUNGEON CELL's HEADSMAN, who 
was turned away from the Duelmastership by BAERUS.  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 hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid FANDILS, please raise you hand.  Wow. 
Does ARDIVENT really have that many liars?  For those of you who like math, try this 
one:  FANDILS + Weapons That go Boom = WRATHMEN + Avoid City.  Well just about 
everybody wants a piece of BLAHH, who was this week's most challenged warrior.   
     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 ARDIVENT 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
