                                      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 BLOGG, who flew up 
14 points in the rankings after mashing TRAGICOMIX like a melon.  Keep your eye on 
this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was TRAGICOMIX, who dropped 10 
points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with BLOGG.  Well, everybody's 
pal BERT & ERNIE moved his record to 15-14-1 by defeating KHALHUMS DWARF in the 
Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 7 recognition points.  Advice to bashers--never 
force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the SNOWBOUND arena.  And 
hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid MESOPOTAMIA, please raise you hand.  Wow. 
Does SNOWBOUND really have that many liars?  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, 
unsling your rasberries, cause OPEN SESAME beats feet every time MESOPOTAMIA smiles 
at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, SLUSHY ICE 
would be president.  Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  C IS FOR COOKIE defied all odds 
and slew SNOW DEMON in the Dark Arena.  The only ones displeased were the buzzards, 
as SNOW DEMON'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.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  Its been 
real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster
