                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
TRANSEL.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  
Coming up with a solid 1-0-0 outing, BALTO has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  
Hey everybody, watch out for PRIVATE 4, who flew up 17 points in the rankings after 
mashing R.L. like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in 
the top ten was R.L., who dropped 10 points after a disappointing (to say the least) 
bout with PRIVATE 4.  Well here's a duelmaster that doesn't sit back and say 
'Challenge me'!  DESMOND DOSS made a Dark Arena Challenge against SOLARIN THE SILENT 
this week.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was DARK 
ARENA's SOLARIN THE SILENT, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by DESMOND 
DOSS.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that BLACK AND BLUES was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of BLACK AND BLUES' 
warriors, I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch BALTO's act in 
the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from BLACK AND BLUES.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  DESMOND DOSS defied all odds and slew SOLARIN THE SILENT 
in the Dark Arena.  The only ones displeased were the buzzards, as SOLARIN THE 
SILENT's meat is notoriously tough.  Big deal, so SERGEANT 3 got mashed in the Dark 
Arena.  With his face he was more at home with the trolls than with us. (Waka waka).  
Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh? 
     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.  See ya 
next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster
