                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Say good-bye 
to THE BEARS, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the MIDDLE WAY 10 
stable.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was RELENTLESS, who dropped 14 
points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with EB GOLLU.  Well here's a 
duelmaster that doesn't sit back and say 'Challenge me'!  TRAIN WRECK made a 
challenge against BENSI DURN this week.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught 
but bloody knuckles was MIDDLE WAY 10's BENSI DURN, who was turned away from the 
Duelmastership by TRAIN WRECK.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a 
day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the VALAMANTIS arena.  Did 
you hear that MIDGETS was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of MIDGETS' warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, 
unsling your rasberries, cause THE BEARS beats feet every time MIDGETS smiles at 
them.  Try farming, eh?  And who is this BENSI DURN you ask, with 94 points and a 
26-15-1 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  In a touching display by a 'touched' 
warrior, BLUE BUTTERFLY went after ALTA CHESS, who was higher by 21 points.  Well, 
when the dust settled, BLUE BUTTERFLY subdued ALTA CHESS.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  For those of you who missed it, Death showed up, grabbed 
DARIMA FENN by the ear and took her away to a place where she won't need a coat.  
Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may encounter problems on the 
trail to the Isle.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in VALAMANTIS have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The

Train Wreck -- I suppose I have to grin and bear it, because there isn't anyone else
for you to fight, but I don't have to LIKE it, you know.  Next time, how about if
it's a narrowly-avoided wreck instead of a total disaster? -- Alta chess

So, do you suppose the Venomous Concubine is ever going to have a sex-change so he
can BE a concubine? -- Bensi Durn, academically curious

So why doesn't Nick let me take Kung-Fu lessons?  It might have helped. -- Darima
Fenn

Relentless -- We know. -- Doc Felle

Blue Butterfly -- For someone with stat problems, you are one mean lady.  Ouch! -- Eb

ATTENTION ALL YOU ALLIANCE-TYPE PEOPLE:
For the purposes of tourney newsletter alliance listings (when I am able to do them),
you may only be listed in ONE alliance.  In other words, you have to choose!  If you
are a part of Englebert's Alliance and Englebert's Alliance is "part" of Ruthrauf's
Alliance, I will list you EITHER as part of Englebert's Alliance OR as part of
Ruthrauf's Alliance, NOT both.  The default would be the top-level alliance,
Ruthrauf's, in this example.  If you'd rather be listed separately, let me know and I
will do so, but that will be the only listing you get. -- The Saint, keeper of ever-
more-complicated lists

The Company of Brothers (TCB) welcomes two new members to our alliance...Liam the
Goth and Buddy Lee.  We have no doubt that they will prove to be assets to our
alliance and the general dueling community. -- Baphomet, co-founder, T.C.B.
