                                      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.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for QUINCY WATTS, who flew up 14 points in the rankings after mashing KORTO 
LU like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to 
walk out on the sands.  DEBBIE GREEN was overcame by JADE RING and drops 5 points.  
Try as hard as the PARANOID ASYLUM stable might, they were unable to find their 
warrior (and ex-Duelmaster) CORINTHIAN before this week's fights.  It's a proud day 
for the SAND DANCERS stable, as their warrior, SUNSET THUNDER, ascended the 
Duelmaster's throne.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this 
stuff?   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Well just about everybody wants a piece of JADE RING, who was this week's most 
challenged warrior.   
     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.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  Its been 
fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you worked up for Snide 
Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster
