                                      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!.  Say good-bye to CHUCK'S PINUPS, as they are 
pushed from the coveted top team spot by the THE FINAL FRONTIER stable.  Advancing in 
the rankings was AMAZON ELITE who went from last turn's 260-213-14, to this week's 
record of 264-213-14.  Hey everybody, watch out for Q, who flew up 11 points in the 
rankings after mashing KLARALLA like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And 
falling like a basher in the top ten was BETTIE PAGE, who dropped 9 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with MORNING DEW.  Unlike most arenas, NOG 
managed to get his challenge off against the 13-5-0 ICE CREAM MAN.  Going for the 
gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was VAN DUEL's ICE CREAM MAN, who 
was turned away from the Duelmastership by NOG.  Advice to bashers--never force 
anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Did you hear that VAN DUEL was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of VAN DUEL's warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you who 
like math, try this one:  VAN DUEL + Weapons That go Boom = AMAZON ELITE + Avoid 
City.  Well just about everybody wants a piece of CABO WABO, who was this week's most 
challenged warrior.  GARAK of THE FINAL FRONTIER had better have a good reason for 
challenging down 9 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought GARAK showed great 
skill and promise when he subdued ONE EYE DARK.  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!  It's not often when you see a 
8-3-0 warrior like CANDY BARR kick the bucket.  I wonder if CHUCK'S PINUPS will 
recover from the blow.  Big man!  CABO WABO kills CANDY BARR.  Who ya gonna fight 
next, CABO WABO--Minnie Mouse?  I hope CHUCK'S PINUPS has a good enough fighter to 
beat the snot out of CABO WABO.  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

And drown, because the LAKE is to the west. -- One Eye
