                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt DAL SHANG will ever be the same.  And let's see, BETTER DUCK fought MERRO 
DOSH and gained 22 points and contributed to MIGHTY DUCKS' 3-2-0.  MERRO DOSH has 
lost to BETTER DUCK, falling 20 points, while helping make SAND DANCERS a 2-3-0 turn. 
We should ask JOEVINA SARIL about the thrill of victory, and what being the new 
Duelmaster does for a warrior, she's now the one to ask.  Tell me, is nothing sacred? 
I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Blazing Unicorn uses trolls in their 
stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Is it really true that DAL SHANG has more dishwashers per capita 
that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Duck Ka-Bob -- I hand over the title to you in the confidence that it will be worn
with honor.  I don't know who your opponent will be now, Joevina, perhaps.  Or
standbys.  Good luck. -- Lorin ten Koro

Better Duck -- I did, you didn't.  Too bad we don't have the option of a draw, huh?
-- Merro Dosh

Doomed Duck -- Surely not, with such a record?  True, you lost THIS fight, but given
your handicap, that isn't a surprise.  And you did rack up three skills.  Not that I
would advise keeping your skills in racks, they stiffen.  But still, that's beside
the point.  I'm not sure I remember what the point IS. -- Joevina Saril

Tenderized Duck -- Well, hey, *I* don't like hospitals even more than YOU don't like
hospitals.  Maybe you need to be tougherized. -- Tappa Tyrn
P.S.  Thanks for the skills, though.  They're bound to be useful sooner or later.

A standby!  Why didn't *I* get to fight a Duck?  I feel left out. -- Melost the Gray

     As threatened, here is a current manager list for this arena.  Let me know if
     I've gotten anyone's name wrong! -- The Saint, keeper of lists
