      Well, you can take THAT down off the flagpole, because nobody is going to
salute it.  Ha!

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for FLAGPOLE PANTIES, who flew up 11 points 
in the rankings after mashing HEARTS like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  HAPPY 
APPLE got through to the Duelmaster this turn.  No doubt he was more than anxious to 
kick YATZEE's tail out of the throne!  In front of all the crowds, HAPPY APPLE took 
the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  4 out of 5 gladiators 
surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the OSKSI arena.  Here's a 
song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad GAMES LIBRARY?  Big bad GAMES LIBRARY.  
Big bad GAMES LIBRARY.  OSKSI's afraid of the big bad GAMES LIBRARY.  Tra la la la 
la!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  GAMES LIBRARY + Weapons That go 
Boom = FRAT PARTY BLOWOUT + Avoid City.  And who is this HEARTS you ask, with 84 
points and a 17-32-1 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  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 
real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Eternal D.J. -- Yes, another encounter.  My dear boy, didn't your mother ever point
out that there are times when silence is better than noise? -- Hearts

What I think is, I think these Dangerous Criminals should all be sent to the Dark
Arena. -- Domino Joe

And the Fratsfa Slaves should be put to work in the galleys. -- Sharan Khor

To those involved, no, I have not abandoned your stories.  But I've been letting them
drift, and that has to stop, so I am taking the time to make sure that I know where
they are going, more than just "what happens next" dreamed up on the fly, before
resuming work on them.  No new stories will be started until at least one of the old
ones has concluded, for the same reason:  quantity can't substitute for quality.
Your patience in this matter is appreciated. -- the Scribe
