                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
TRICORUS.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  We 
now have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  VENTURE BROS. now holds 
the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  Hey everybody, watch out for 
MOLOTOV, who flew up 42 points in the rankings after mashing SHADOW ROSE like a 
melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on 
the sands.  BACK HAND FROG was defeated by NOG and drops 19 points.  Well here's a 
duelmaster that doesn't sit back and say 'Challenge me'!  FROG BELLY LINT made a 
challenge against HARGERD this week.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught 
but bloody knuckles was DARK HORSEMEN's HARGERD, who was turned away from the 
Duelmastership by FROG BELLY LINT.  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!  
Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad VENTURE  BROS.?  Big bad VENTURE 
BROS..  Big bad VENTURE BROS..  TRICORUS' afraid of the big bad VENTURE BROS..  Tra 
la la la la!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch BATTLE FROGS 03-13's act in the 
arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from VENTURE BROS..  Well 
just about everybody wants a piece of HARGERD, who was this week's most challenged 
warrior.  Well, it looks like JOAN JETT wasn't happy with last turn's rank, so she 
went for broke by challenging up 27 points.  No guts, no glory.  Trading many whacks 
on the head and a loss for 1 recognition points, JOAN JETT shows that a gal doesn't 
have to be good to get places.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  There's got to be more reason 
for the sending of BETTIE PAGE to the Dark Arena than hers record (4-1-0).  Anybody 
got any ideas CHUCK'S PINUPS?  It's not often when you see a 15-9-1 warrior like 
SHADOW ROSE kick the bucket.  I wonder if DARK HORSEMEN will recover from the blow.  
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

Well, damn.  Uh, darn.  An oh-fer.  Not one of our stellar turns, and Rose even lost
to a standby!  I lost to the Frog, who DID get his belly lint under control (and a
revolting sight it was, too!).  I don't mind, getting dropped down the ranks is good,
less exposed. -- Hargerd
