                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in DAL 
SHANG.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for LAW MAN, who flew up 24 points in the rankings after mashing 
KO LAO-DEN like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't 
pay to walk out on the sands.  RED RYDER was beat by DARK WING and drops 15 points.  
In front of all the crowds, RUNE HELLFIRE took the Duelmaster's crown for hers own.  
I give the bum two weeks.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger 
halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad MIGHTY DUCKS?  Big bad MIGHTY DUCKS.  Big bad MIGHTY DUCKS.  DAL SHANG's 
afraid of the big bad MIGHTY DUCKS.  Tra la la la la!  Okay, so I may not be funny, 
but catch GOT IT FOR CHRISTMAS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly 
deft at running from MIGHTY DUCKS.  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, 
WIDOWMAKER would be president.  Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.  
VIRGINIA, NO SANTA of GOT IT FOR CHRISTMAS had better have a good reason for 
challenging down 11 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought VIRGINIA, NO SANTA 
showed great skill and promise when he subdued KASSAL TEN DRU.  All right, so I slept 
through it!  Big deal!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Knowing when to use the right tactics at 
the proper time is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, there's the manager of the DAL SHANG giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Hasta la bye-bye. 
(Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

exactly.  But I'd rather win. -- Tebas ten Kogan

And the Sand Dancers are an impressive four-oh against standbys!  What a rush.
