                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Say good-bye to MIDDLE WAY 18, as they are 
pushed from the coveted top team spot by the H8 2 TXT stable.  Hey everybody, watch 
out for SARMINO TIELO, who flew up 29 points in the rankings after mashing GORDON 
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 bested by CONVICTED ASSASSIN and drops 11 points.  
Our battling duelmaster MRS. POTATOE HEAD has managed to hold the title, fending off 
SALINDA RENN's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, MIDDLE WAY 18.  
Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  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 ERINIKA have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown
