                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Coming up with a solid 4-1-0 outing, IN QETERNUM has advanced 6 
places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for AGOSERIS, who flew up 23 points 
in the rankings after mashing KORTALIA like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya 
know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  DASTER MARQUE was subdued 
by KISS OF DEATH and drops 18 points.  Well, if ya don't shows up at the laundromat, 
ya can'ts wash yer clothes.  MY SHADOW did not fight this week so his title was 
forfeit.  It's a proud day for the MANEGERIAL MAYHEM stable, as their warrior, 
SPAWING OF SPEWN, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  Advice to bashers--never force 
anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad IN QETERNUM?  Big bad IN QETERNUM.  Big bad IN QETERNUM.  TEMPLE OF ABARSIS' 
afraid of the big bad IN QETERNUM.  Tra la la la la!  And you guys like to boo me?  
Well, unsling your rasberries, cause OBSIDIAN ORDER beats feet every time IN QETERNUM 
smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, 
BLIGHT'S BURDEN would be president.  Although it may be a contest she doesn't want to 
win.  TALONA of OBSIDIAN ORDER had better have a good reason for challenging down 8 
points in a challenge which she was slain.  I thought TALONA showed great skill and 
promise when she was dealt death by TUUMS.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big 
deal!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Proving again that TEMPLE OF ABARSIS is not rated G, 
AGOSERIS of the WARHAMMERS slew the warrior KORTALIA in a rather bloody bout.  Let's 
look for a bloodfeud.  For those of you who missed it, Death showed up, grabbed SONNY 
URK by the ear and took him away to a place where he won't need a coat.  In the 
'Oops, What Have I Done?' category, THADITHIC LITHPER was mashed by CRISTER MOFFEE, 
who let THADITHIC LITHPER know that killing members of MANEGERIAL MAYHEM is a no-no.  
Congrats to VINCERE MORS for revenging the death of his teammate (but more 
importantly, feeding BROOMSTICK a bit of dirt).  Knowing when to use the right 
tactics at the proper time is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in TEMPLE OF ABARSIS 
have no sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's 
make some tracks.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick 
your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

answer that. -- Oz The All Excited

Kiss of Death -- Ugh, who'd want to? -- Nin Quire

Quadling -- Do you quack? -- Hilroc Ibbins

Jack Knife -- Whew!  I wasn't sure I'd pull that one off.  Good 
fight. -- Rondol Quiglo

confusing. -- Sonny Urk

Talkeetna -- Which is no reason not to train your SZ, or at least do stretching
exercises. -- Sonny Urk

it and that we will see you there!
