                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in DAYLA 
KIV.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Coming up 
with a solid 3-2-1 outing, TOLBINS LADIES has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  Hey 
everybody, watch out for NEWBIE MGR., who flew up 12 points in the rankings after 
mashing BOOMER like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher 
in the top ten was TESSIE, who dropped 3 points after a disappointing (to say the 
least) bout with KULVAR TEN KOGAN.  Unlike most arenas, SASHA managed to get hers 
challenge off against the 0-0-0 FARLITHAN THE CAT.  Well, everybody's pal SASHA moved 
hers record to 16-8-2 by defeating FARLITHAN THE CAT in the Duelmaster's Title Bout 
and gaining 2 recognition points.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, 
so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that MOB BOSSES was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of MOB BOSSES' warriors, 
I'm not surprised!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  MOB BOSSES + 
Weapons That go Boom = LEARN TO ADD! + Avoid City.  Well just about everybody wants a 
piece of BOOMER, who was this week's most challenged warrior.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  SASHA defied all odds and slew FARLITHAN 
THE CAT in the Dark Arena.  The only ones displeased were the buzzards, as FARLITHAN 
THE CAT's meat is notoriously tough.  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.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The 
Unknown Spymaster
