                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  We now have a 
new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  SAND DANCERS now holds the crown and 
they are betting they can keep it.  Hey everybody, watch out for ROT, who flew up 15 
points in the rankings after mashing SAGAT OF PAIDAN like a melon.  Keep your eye on 
this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was CHAEGO TEN SELAH, who dropped 
4 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with MALDI STONEBREAKER.  
Well, everybody's pal AN YEE moved his record to 19-38-1 by defeating JACK TRIPPER in 
the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 14 recognition points.  4 out of 5 gladiators 
surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the DAL SHANG arena.  Did you 
hear that POSSE was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene 
of POSSE's warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling 
your rasberries, cause LAUGH TRACK LORDS beats feet every time POSSE smiles at them.  
Try farming, eh?  And who is this NORBEN THE LESSER you ask, with 94 points and a 
16-37-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  There's got to be more reason 
for the sending of DA1 to the Dark Arena than his record (2-1-1).  Anybody got any 
ideas THAT SMELL?  Knowing when to use the right tactics at the proper time is a very 
important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in DAL SHANG have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat 
it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

                                     PERSONAL ADS

Okay, huh, I get to write a personal, after MONTHS of silence.  About time!  
Especially since I'm graduating and won't have another chance.  Back in June, when I 
wrote our last personal, it seemed like this might be sort of a chore.  Now, it's a 
thing to be glad about it.  Yes!  The Sand Dancers are returning to the personals!  
Jorja says she'll even hunt out the replacement rollup, presumed to be somewhere in 
the stack of turns-not-read, and submit it.  For now, we really are back.  We've even 
been threatened with some sort of limited adventure.  Be still my bounding joy. -- An 
Yee, glad to be getting out alive

Citrine -- You're a familiar face, but should I trust a total parry with yellow eyes?  
Every time I see you, I get this mental image of some big CAT, and I have always known 
that cats should be treated with caution. -- An Yee
P.S.  Want to come over to my place and have a dish of cream?

Jack Tripper -- I wish you would trip in the arena.  People are always dropping stuff 
out there on the sands, weapons, initiatives, you name it.  Couldn't you trip over 
some of it? -- Ko the Average

Malachite -- The thing is, I've been taking lessons from a gem-cutter.  And it WORKS. 
-- Norben the Lesser
P.S.  Nothing personal, I rather like malachite as a gem, just not as an opponent on 
the sands.

Ha!  I live to hear the standbys cry out how much they hurt. -- Chaego ten Selah

Maul?  MAUL?  (sigh)  High, low, bash. -- An Yee
