                                      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!.  We now have a new top team for all of you guys 
to dogpile on.  SHEWISH BUFFET now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep 
it.  Hey everybody, watch out for CHUCK ENDERN, who flew up 28 points in the rankings 
after mashing R2-D2 like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a 
basher in the top ten was VINDA YARRO, who dropped 17 points after a disappointing 
(to say the least) bout with DARTH VADAR.  In front of all the crowds, GRAHAM CRACKER 
took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  Can you believe 
they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Well, the arena is no place for slow learners (and 
hopefully T.P.s) and GIRL SCOUT COOKIE demonstrated that very violently on YODA's 
body.  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your ally in the arena with 
you and see what happens.   
     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.  And 
remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've 
heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

"HORSE D'OEUVRE was eaten by SHEWISH GIANT in a 2 minute Dark Arena fight."  I guess
we should've seen that coming. -- Shewish Buffet

     The Shewish Giants eat a lot.

Horse d'Oeuvre -- You will be sorely missed. -- those who walk the Middle Way

I defeat M. Chardinee "narrowly," and the rest of my team defeat or are defeated by
smurfs and snacks.  How greatly we miss Horse d'Oeuvre!  And others of like quality.
But perhaps someone will grow to such stature here even yet.  We can hope. -- Arkan
Barnes, duelmaster by default
