                                      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!.  Say good-bye to RANDOM SITH, as they are pushed 
from the coveted top team spot by the FLAGG'S DEVASTATORS stable.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for DEATH MAGE, who flew up 18 points in the rankings after mashing DONETTA 
FALDOUR like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the 
top ten was GORMODUC IRN, who dropped 16 points after a disappointing (to say the 
least) bout with RABID BLITZER.  The most challenged warrior this week was DARTH 
SCION.  If this keeps up, our Duelmaster's going to need more avoids!  RUSSIAN BEAR 
got through to the Duelmaster this turn.  No doubt he was more than anxious to kick 
DARTH SCION's tail out of the throne!  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught 
but bloody knuckles was THE BEARS' RUSSIAN BEAR, who was turned away from the 
Duelmastership by DARTH SCION.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so 
try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that COLORS was most avoided 
team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of COLORS' warriors, I'm not 
surprised!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch THE BEARS' act in the arena.  
Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from COLORS.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  For those of you who missed it, 
Death showed up, grabbed DONETTA FALDOUR by the ear and took her away to a place 
where she won't need a coat.  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.  Okay, so I may not be the world's best comedian, 
but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  And remember, you can pick your 
friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The 
Unknown Spymaster
