                                      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.  Say good-bye 
to SUPER STARS, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the BLACKMAIL 
stable.  Coming up with a solid 0-0-0 outing, BAD APPLES has advanced 7 places in the 
rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for RIMN, who flew up 13 points in the rankings 
after mashing MORDANT DESERTER like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, 
some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  ULTOR TAK was beat by EXTORTION 
and drops 3 points.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles 
was MIDDLE WAY 18's ROS QUIN, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by DEATH 
SUCKS.  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!   
     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.   
     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

Extortion -- Parlor games, eh? -- Salinda Renn

     There has been a run lately of personals and columns turning up in the wrong
     arenas.  When you email in something, check and make sure you have the correct
     arena number!  It's easy for a finger to slip onto the wrong key.  When the
     receipt comes back, check again to be sure it went where you intended!
     Vigilance is your friend, and mine too. -- the Editor
