                                      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 OUT OF TP, who flew up 16 points in the rankings after mashing 
WARRIOR-MAGE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't 
pay to walk out on the sands.  MOONSTER was defeated by BRENDA and drops 13 points.  
Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was TROCAR's 
GURTARGAN MONK, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by FOGGED UP MIRROR.  An 
apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Did you hear that ASKEWNIVERSE was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of ASKEWNIVERSE's warriors, I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may not 
be funny, but catch KILLER B'S' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly 
deft at running from ASKEWNIVERSE.  And who is this MOONSTER you ask, with 16 points 
and a 2-2-1 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Knowing when to use the right tactics at 
the proper time is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, there's the manager of the TROCAR giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Hasta la bye-bye. 
(Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

                     PAYMENTS BY CHECK AND MONEY ORDER -- CHANGE

Please note that because of new bank regulations, we can no longer accept any check or 
money order drawn off a non-US bank, even if it is in US Funds.  We were just informed 
by our bank that the fee to process these checks is $40, which is crazy high!

Many apologies to our foreign players, but you will need to either get a check from a 
US bank (Chase, Citigroup, etc.) or pay via credit card.  

  Armsilbar liked being Master of the Stronghold Academy, all except for one part.

He had to talk to Sheila Greywand at least once a week, usually oftener.  She was 
getting more erratic.  More chaotic.  That would be the effect of the Grey Wand.  It 
was a powerful chaotic artifact, and she kept it with her always.  She had turned his 
predecessor into a frog--or 164 frogs--and then summoned all the members of the 
Academy to a frog-leg dinner.  That had been, ah, bad.  Yes, very bad.
     But here he was entering her chambers.  With, well, it couldn't be called GOOD 
news.  And the look she turned on him--she was in an orcish mood today, all scowling 
black brows and bared fangs--that made him nervous.  But some things had to be done.  
He cleared his throat, which seemed to have a frog in it, and said, "It's about the 
next tourney prize, Lady.  I know it's more than two months away, but this isn't too 
soon to start thinking of some new, exciting prize--"
     "I have no intention of thinking about 'new, exciting prizes'," she snapped.  Or 
was that a snarl?  "These managers are getting above themselves.  They act like I 
created the arena system for their amusement!  There will be one standard prize for 
all the tourneys.  Just one."
     He had a horrible vision of all the managers walking out in a mass.  Perhaps it 
wouldn't be that bad, but it wouldn't be good.  And if he said the wrong thing, well, 
the next frog-leg dinner might be him. "Er, ah, perhaps a specific prize for each 
tourney--a spring prize, a summer prize, and so on?  The managers expect--"
     She exploded.  A literal explosion, the force of the blast blew his hair off.  
She said several things in an obsolete dialect of orcish.  He stepped backward, then 
again.  The blast had blown the door open behind him.  If he could make it out before 
something else happened--
     "Ribbit!  Ribbit!"
