                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly VALAMANTIS games.  Former top team ALL ABOUT BASHERS 
was unseated this week as EVIL DEATH DUDES moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top 
spot with a 5-0-0 record for the round.  Fortune did not smile upon AS SEEN ON TV 
this time out who this turn suffered a fall into 8th position in the wake of a 0-0-0 
round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness how 
this week RIO VISTANS went 4-1-1 to move up 3 in the rankings.  BERTHA caught the eye 
of many in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested DARTH PLAGWEIS and 
was awarded 16 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, CHUCK 
put down XAVIER, causing him to lose 10 points of recognition in the process.  
Unwilling to wait upon the will of others, Duelmaster DARTH TIMMY challenged GREAT 
WEAPON CHOICE last week in a match to decide the fate of the throne.  Not for nothing 
has DARTH TIMMY in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's 
proven his combat skill yet again.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the 
top team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  EVIL DEATH DUDES is feared.  This 
much I can say.  Apparently the stalwarts of ALL ABOUT BASHERS are catching the bulk 
of jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty 
fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  XAVIER take warning!  You 
have more than a few enemies in VALAMANTIS.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  T.R. has sworn to take up religion upon living to tell of his 
recent bout with the Dark Arena horrors.  A rare thing indeed!  The warrior's path is 
harsh.  For mediocrity there is but one reward--death.  This past week DARTH 
PLAGWEIS, at 7-6-1, departed VALAMANTIS forever.  Walk proud, warriors of BLOOD 
KNIGHTS!  By striking down CATTY WOMPUS you have avenged the honor of your dead.  
Your virtue is known to all in VALAMANTIS.  Some say a warrior is judged by the way 
he bears arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!  
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks 
slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.--

Ginsu Classic -- Ah... tea? -- Erfin Goram the confused
P.S.  It's like ginsing, yes?

Flex-X -- Somehow, that does not impress me.  Maybe because you're so short? --
Donetta Faldour

Sir Marton -- I gotta tell you, I was surprised.  I thought I'd lost it, but you lost
it faster.  Nothing like being the last man standing. -- Fronk Hurrace

T.R. -- You're a pig, but you're an efficient one, I'll give you that. -- B.D.

Dominatrix -- I have to learn how you DO that. -- Gabrella Imbro
P.S.  It's impressive, and I'd like to be impressive, instead of depressive.

Large Marge -- Depends on how you define "prize." -- Gabrella Imbro

Our congratulations to T.R.  Now get out of here. -- the Middle Way

Easy Tweeze -- Too bad about the secret strategy there.  My door is always open,
though, so feel free to come back for seconds any time you like. -- Darth Timmy

Blood Knights -- The return to the sands looks like it's been a little rough for your
crew so far.  I don't know if you're just on a bad run, but Duelmasters needs to
retain all the players it has.  Stick with it, and if there's anything I can do to
help, don't hesitate to contact me via diplomatic note or email
(sentinel_at_cruzio_dot_com). -- The Sentinel, mgr. Evil Death Dudes

Pauly -- Regarding the throne of Valamantis, my grip is still iron.  In case you were
wondering. -- The Sentinel

V.I.M. -- The Random Sith guys and I do hang out, as a matter of fact.  They have
cool names like me, so it is only natural. -- Darth Timmy

Donetta Faldour -- Don't take it personal, I just enjoy good company. -- Dr Baddas

Fratsfa Slave -- Didn't you notice my record when we fought (5-0-3)?  I really needed
a four at the end of that record and you let me down... -- The Smiter

All -- Thanks for the words of welcome.  I must admit turn 404 was done in the blind.
I did not receive turn sheets for turn 403, the turn Sir Matthew bit the dust.  I
happened to see the resutls via the web site.  As of this writing I still have not
received a new roll-up sheet for Sir Matthew's replacement!  This all sucks on top of
the fact that I'm 0-14!!!!  Oh well, I guess I'll just be sending 4 warriors!!  BTW,
who can I bribe to get a win!!!! -- Squire

Pauly, Nuln, Nick -- Look forward to seeing your folks in the arena. -- Squire

Nuln -- I hope to stick around awhile, as long as I get the turn sheets. -- Squire

Zero-Maul Envy -- Woah... woman!!  No need to have an attitude! -- Sir Albert

Catty Wompus -- Whoever typed the fight sheets can tell a he from a she.  I, Sir
David, am DEFINATELY a HE!  From the description of Sir David it's hard to tell...
Strange???
