                                      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 MANDI COBRA, who flew up 9 points in the rankings after mashing 
DISHONEST JUSTICE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya know, some days it 
doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  ANN NASTY lost to AMBITIOUS GUARD and drops 1 
points.  It's a proud day for the SAND DANCERS stable, as their warrior, THE 
MONGOOSE, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, 
just get a bigger halberd!   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the LIN TIRIAN arena.  And 
hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid MISCREANTZ, please raise you hand.  Wow.  
Does LIN TIRIAN really have that many liars?  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, 
unsling your rasberries, cause MEDAL OF HONOR Z2 beats feet every time MISCREANTZ 
smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?   
     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.  Okay, so I may not be the world's best comedian, 
but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been real, and its been fun, 
but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

SEVEN fights this time!  Of course, four of them involved standbys, but still.  And
then, on the down-side, we went oh-fer, and three of our fights were against the 
aforementioned standbys.  Embarrassing. -- the Mongoose, who at least lost to the
