                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
AMEN-TEI.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for SELAUNAH, who flew up 13 points in the rankings after 
mashing RUTHLESS JAYWALKER like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya know, some 
days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  JHANA was subdued by HOBO JO and drops 
7 points.  Our battling duelmaster LOCKHEART has managed to hold the title, fending 
off MARIO ANDRETTI's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, CAR AND 
DRIVER.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay. 
     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!  Proving again that AMEN-TEI is not rated G, AMBITIOUS 
GUARD of the AMEN-TEI slew the warrior JOE CHILL in a rather bloody bout.  Let's look 
for a bloodfeud.  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.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick 
your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Frean -- You know, I think your team and mine should go into business together, we
spend so much time in each other's company anyway. -- Hobo Jo
P.S.  Nothing specific in mind, just a thought.
P.P.S.  Besides, you're so tall.

Deevine -- I have completely, but completely exhausted myself teaching you skills.  I
didn't even have the energy left to learn any for myself!  Still, to teach so well
has a certain satisfaction to it. -- Passer By
P.S.  And your hair.  Who does your hair?  You seem to know some of the best beauty
technicians....

Mario Andretti -- I don't see being an elf isn't cool, but it isn't everything.  Take
your car.  You elves just don't understand about mechanisms.  Takes a dwarf to keep
it running right, doesn't it? -- Joe Chill

Tindel -- (bursts into tears)  I didn't realize you HATED me.  What did I do? --
Selaunah

The Visiting Orc is a Fratsfan?  I find that incredible.  Of course, we all know that
times are hard these days, and many once-respectable fortunes have vanished like the
dew, but that a Fratsfan should have been brought so low that he would impersonate an
Orc in the arena is shocking. -- Shady Lady

30 July 2004
The total number of fights calculated was reported as 250 fights.  This is a
misprint.  It should have read "over 2,500 fights." -- Baphomet
