     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!.  Advancing in the rankings was MIDDLE WAY 10 who 
went from last turn's 228-303-4, to this week's record of 232-304-4.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for WOLF RIDER, who flew up 22 points in the rankings after mashing RABID 
BLITZER like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay 
to walk out on the sands.  RABID BLITZER was subdued by WOLF RIDER and drops 19 
points.  Try as hard as the RANDOM SITH stable might, they were unable to find their 
warrior (and ex-Duelmaster) DARTH SCION before this week's fights.  It's a proud day 
for the DEATH MOB stable, as their warrior, DEATH MAGE, ascended the Duelmaster's 
throne.  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!  
And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid RANDOM SITH, please raise you hand.  
Wow.  Does VALAMANTIS really have that many liars?  And you guys like to boo me?  
Well, unsling your rasberries, cause THE BEARS beats feet every time RANDOM SITH 
smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, 
GORMODUC IRN would be president.  Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to 
win.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  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.  See ya next time I'm on this 
circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Mastiff -- Heck.  I never did like dogs. -- Invur Kreb
P.S.  Or bears.  I was trying to follow the park-ranger advice and NOT feed you, but
you just couldn't leave me alone, could you?

Death Mage -- I hate it when that happens. -- Ghost of Donetta Faldour

Rabid Blitzer -- Oh, sure, use your ridiculous height and your darned elven cool
superciliousness to make other people feel like dirt.  See if I care. -- Gormoduc Irn

Furious Basher -- I do so love it when someone pays attention to the old "truth in
advertizing" thing.  You really know where you stand with people like that. -- Chea
Edel

The Baron -- No, I do NOT want you to do it again.  As if!  This is NOT how my first
fight was supposed to go.  I want to discard this and call my NEXT one first. --
Isombard Korl

Our congratulations to Darth Scion. -- Jorja and the Middle Way
