                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
COLLUSION COVE.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid! 
Hey everybody, watch out for FLIK, who flew up 19 points in the rankings after 
mashing TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some 
days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  IRON HYDE lost to BB BULLY BOY and 
drops 13 points.  Try as hard as the SUPERIOR FORCES 1601 stable might, they were 
unable to find their warrior (and ex-Duelmaster) VIKI before this week's fights.  In 
front of all the crowds, SHMEGMA took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the 
bum two weeks.  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!  
Did you hear that EX OBLIVIONE was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of EX OBLIVIONE's warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to 
boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause SUPERIOR FORCES 1601 beats feet every 
time EX OBLIVIONE smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  And who is this LASSIE you ask, 
with 43 points and a 8-19-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  In a touching 
display by a 'touched' warrior, PERFECT SNOTLING went after BLACK WIDOW XLIII, who 
was higher by 24 points.  Well, when the dust settled, PERFECT SNOTLING overcame 
BLACK WIDOW XLIII.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Congrats to JRK for revenging the death of his teammate 
(but more importantly, feeding BOKRUG a bit of dirt).  Knowing when to use the right 
tactics at the proper time is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in COLLUSION COVE 
have no sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Okay, so I may not be 
the world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Hasta 
la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

You once thought of me,
As a white knight on a steed.
Now you know how happy I can be...

It's true.  I'm gone.  I've punched my ticket to Immortality and I'm off to the Isle.
I know a lot of you are wondering what it is about me that has made me so successful.
I wish I knew for sure.  I think it has more to do with intangibles (knack) than it
does with design, bonuses and favorites.  I'll let you decide.

Daydream Believer (PR) 17-14-4-17-7-8-17  Poor Endurance--Good Damage
I -- 8 (+1)  R -- 13  A -- 14 (+4)  P -- 14 (+4)  Df - 8  Dc - 6 (+3)

I know what you're thinking, "WTF, that guy looks like a 98 lb weakling!"  Sigh...I
prefer to think my physical characteristics are ideally suited for a finesse style.
As for my bases, I know they aren't much to look at.  After all, I am a PR.  I'm
fortunate to be blessed where I need it the most--attack and parry.

Okay, so I've got nice bases with bonuses in the right spots.  What about favorites?
Did I know them in advance or did I change them?  The answer is no, I had no idea
what they were for sure until I recieved my graduation announcement.  I would be
happy to tell you what my favorites are but I don't think my clone, Jumpinjack Flash,
would be very happy with me if I did.  Let's just say that from the moment I stepped
on the sands as a Rookie I used the same strategy in EVERY fight.  The only thing I
ever changed was armor (early on vs. TP's) and attack/defend locations.  That should
give those of you who have faced me more than once something to think about.

You may be interested to know that I am all natural.  I haven't had a prize of any
type used on me.  I'm a freak of nature.  It just goes to show you never know when a
guy like me will walk into your guildhouse looking for work as a gladiator.  It's up
to you to spot the potential and nuture it along.

I'm going to list my tourney results and records versus each style.  It isn't meant
to be a brag--I just thought you might find it interesting and a lot easier than
looking it up yourself.  Enjoy!

As you can see, the only style I had trouble with is the ABs.  I think that has more
to do with which ABs I fought rather than the style as a whole.  I was 3-1 vs ABs
early on (Rookies-Champs) and 4-10 in Challengers.  I was 1-5 vs Marv, 0-1 vs Marv Jr
and 0-3 vs Soulsnare.  I am going to make an educated guess and assume they all had
skills or prizes added to them to make them competetive at the Challenger level where
so few ABs are.  I could be wrong, though I doubt it.

See you on the Isle,
    Daydream Believer
