                                      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!.  It looks like the guys(?) at MIDDLE WAY 20 had 
a good week as they went 4-1-0 to put them in 2nd place.  I guess steroids help!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for RYVAS VOLKMAURI, who flew up 23 points in the rankings after 
mashing RIRORNI SOLDIERS like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some 
days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  MODREFT MEGLEEN was bested by ERBIN 
GOETZ and drops 4 points.  Unlike most arenas, RIA ROSEDANCER managed to get hers 
challenge off against the 0-0-0 MAINAKHA-TE MASTER.  The crowds were amazed this 
turn, as MAINAKHA-TE MASTER killed the Duelmaster, RIA ROSEDANCER, leaving 
INCONSISTENT FURY in mourning.  This incredible death has allowed, I might add, FREM 
HARID from MIDDLE WAY 20 to ascend to the throne of Duelmaster, and I hear DARK ARENA 
is not happy.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the ROCANIS arena.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  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.  See ya 
next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster
