                                      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!.  Rising in the ranks like a loaf of armored 
bread (okay, I admit it's corny) is ROYAL FLUSH, who swept up 11 places in the ranks. 
What goes up, must come down.  Watch out MAMBOLAND!  NUKE TEST may fall on you as it 
crushes past the teams below it to fall on the 19th spot.  Call it luck at the right 
time or bribes in the right hands, but the new team TOLBINS HIVE A scored a 4-1-0 
record this week.  Hey everybody, watch out for YRSA, who flew up 23 points in the 
rankings after mashing VENOMOUS CLEMENTINE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  
And falling like a basher in the top ten was VENOMOUS CLEMENTINE, who dropped 20 
points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with YRSA.  Well here's a 
duelmaster that doesn't sit back and say 'Challenge me'!  PAUL made a Dark Arena 
Challenge against SOUTH SPOON this week.  Going for the gusto and coming up with 
aught but bloody knuckles was DARK ARENA's SOUTH SPOON, who was turned away from the 
Duelmastership by PAUL.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day 
keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the MAMBOLAND arena.  Here's 
a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad DEAD GAWDS?  Big bad DEAD GAWDS.  Big 
bad DEAD GAWDS.  MAMBOLAND's afraid of the big bad DEAD GAWDS.  Tra la la la la!  And 
you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause WEIRD ALCHEMY beats 
feet every time DEAD GAWDS smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well dang howdy, but if 
challenges were votes, MIGHTY MANFRED would be president.  Although it may be a 
contest he doesn't want to win.  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, 
ONIKOROSHI went after HADES, who was higher by 20 points.  Well, when the dust 
settled, ONIKOROSHI was defeated by HADES.  LION of LAND OF OZ had better have a good 
reason for challenging down 14 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought LION 
showed great skill and promise when he bested BROKEN SKY.  All right, so I slept 
through it!  Big deal!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  PAUL defied all odds and slew 
SOUTH SPOON in the Dark Arena.  The only ones displeased were the buzzards, as SOUTH 
SPOON's meat is notoriously tough.  NORTON defied all odds and slew ALEX TREBEK in 
the Dark Arena.  The only ones displeased were the buzzards, as ALEX TREBEK's meat is 
notoriously tough.  This week 8-7-0 MIMI was sent to the Dark Arena.  I know a lot of 
fighters with similar records who might take notice of this.  Proving again that 
MAMBOLAND is not rated G, BOMBULOID of the WEIRD ALCHEMY slew the warrior GRIMHILD in 
a rather bloody bout.  Let's look for a bloodfeud.  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.  Okay, so I may not be the world's best comedian, 
but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  And remember, you can pick your 
friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The 
Unknown Spymaster

All -- The Turf Wars are here.  Sign up, sign up!  Why is Assur's Team always so well
organized?  They signed up first.  Is M*MBO even going to be in it?  Will they
defend, or will they sputter? -- Oz The All Inquisitive

Crip, Mannequin, Slugbait and Oz are Turf War Teaming.  Who is captaining? -- Oz The
All Confused

Oz told us we all had to refrain from public presentations and press interviews until
after The Face, so we all guess we will be quiet. -- Ding Dong, Yellow Brick, Lion,
Castle, and TBD

Declaring my participation in Turf War 9 as a member of LBA+, captained by Assur.
Looking forward to it. -- Kharadmon, mgr Garbage Pail Kids

It's nice to be welcomed, so thank you, Oz, and I would also like to thank those
fighters who showed mine no mercy in the arena.  I wish nothing but the best
challenges for my team, to whip them into shape, and it makes their victory that much
sweeter when they win. -- Cpt. Umbra

Me and mine are declaring inb the next TW as part of New Wave, captained by Master
Fox. -- Cpt. Umbra, mgr White Shadow

Hades -- Gawds are dead. -- Nietzsche

Cheers, Paul!  Ciao, Carla!

Sifu Monks moving all up int Maaahm-bo! (stick)

Did you get a look at the lips on Weird Alchemy's Megabotox?!

Subterfuge is the best, baddest, dark arenist we've ever had!

(Typos:  the bane of all personal ads...)

     So true, especially when I'm not sure what it was supposed to be.

99 to Life -- Good match, as I knew it would be.  I learned much from you (5
skills!). -- Hanzo

Fiddle -- You looked like a psycho-killer, coming at me with that knife!  I guess
that's fitting for Halloween.  I got so scared that I dropped my weapon! --
Onikoroshi

Odin Aversson -- Good counter. -- Mushi

Arawn -- Kinsune is one that I had high hopes for.  Prepare for revenge! -- Master
Fox

The Turf War cometh and Master Fox of Clan Kitfox will lead the New Wave alliance.
Captain Umbra of White Shadow and I seek two more intrepid stables of gladiators to
add to our cause!

This is Otto X.  I will be back to help defend M*MBO's title in Turf War IX and keep
our fair city named for such an outstanding alliance.  May the gods have mercy on the
rest of you.  That is all.

All -- I, Madwand, manager of Fast Food declare I will be participating in the Turf
War alongside my alliance mates as part of team M*AMBO.  Master Darque is our Captain
again and will be leading us to victory as we defend our title.  MamboLand forever!
-- Madwand

I confirm Kharadmon as a member of LBA+ for the next Turf War, filling our team.  He
should be posting his team details in the next turn or two. -- Assur

Evil One -- Now, what'd you go and do that for?  Ham Burglar was going to provide us
all easy wins during the TW. -- Assur

A very begrudging congratulations to the DM 47 TVs and Khisanth for the TC.  I wish
it had been otherwise, but I have to respect your success. -- Assur
P.S.  Though I can still hope to see all the dead TVs return to their resting places!

name-change," he said.  "How can I do my best known as," he shuddered, "'Dangling 
Eyeball'?  My name is Joe, and I want to use it."
    A small and very shapely woman stepped up beside him.  "And I am really tired of 
being known as 'DA Bait'."  She smiled, causing Alarond to sway where he stood.  "I'd 
like to be known as... Aphrodite, I think."
    The others crowded forward, each advancing a claim, the babble of voice rising to 
a roar, the crowd beginning to look like a mob--and every member of it armed and 
dangerous.
    Alarond raised his hands to quiet them, without much success.  He raised his 
voice, too.  "We'll do it!  A Name-Change-O-Rama, as soon as we can get the paperwork 
lined up!  Two or three months, maybe--"
    The gladiators howled in protest at the delay.
    "No, listen!  The files here are HUGE, it will take time to get everything 
straight.  You've got to be patient.  It WILL happen!"
