                                      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 KYLADEUS, who flew up 21 points in the rankings after mashing 
UNEXPECTED like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in 
the top ten was UNTOUCHABLE, who dropped 14 points after a disappointing (to say the 
least) bout with HAROUN SHADDAR.  Well here's a duelmaster that doesn't sit back and 
say 'Challenge me'!  CALEAM CHOWDER made a challenge against KURTAL DUCK this week.  
Well, everybody's pal CALEAM CHOWDER moved his record to 12-0-0 by defeating KURTAL 
DUCK in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 9 recognition points.  Advice to 
bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid THE WILLBURYS 78, please raise you 
hand.  Wow.  Does LIN TIRIAN really have that many liars?  Okay, so I may not be 
funny, but catch SHEWISH BUFFET's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly 
deft at running from THE WILLBURYS 78.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and 
take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in LIN TIRIAN have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  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
