                                      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!  We now 
have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  TIL DEATH DO US PART now 
holds the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  Coming up with a solid 4-1-0 
outing, TIL DEATH DO US PART has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for BOBIKA VHETT, who flew up 23 points in the rankings after mashing 
KARZIN TYRN like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in 
the top ten was AMORE', who dropped 15 points after a disappointing (to say the 
least) bout with CAPTIAN LENSAR.  Well here's a duelmaster that doesn't sit back and 
say 'Challenge me'!  REVEREND BLOOD made a challenge against OCTAVIA this week.  Our 
battling duelmaster REVEREND BLOOD has managed to hold the title, fending off 
OCTAVIA's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, TIL DEATH DO US PART.  
Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
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 MARY'S SOAPS' act in the arena.  
Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from MIGHTY DUCKS.  Well just about 
everybody wants a piece of TOBIAS BEECHER, who was this week's most challenged 
warrior.  In a mismatch, our friend SIXKILLER of POSSE got heroic notions and 
challenged FRIAR DUCK.  What did it get him?  A 14-9-0 record, that's what.  To the 
crowd's chants of 'Bo-zo bo-zo bo-zo', FRIAR DUCK was taken out by the lower-ranked 
SIXKILLER.  (Maybe it's time to think Dark Arena?).  In a touching display by a 
'touched' warrior, LONESTAR went after TOBIAS BEECHER, who was higher by 20 points.  
Well, when the dust settled, LONESTAR was dealt death by TOBIAS BEECHER.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  The audience likes blood and there was plenty of it 
covering LONESTAR as he was driven to an early grave by TOBIAS BEECHER of the OZ 2.  
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.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've 
got you worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster
