     And this time, I get to defeat a Convicted Assassin.  I don't know if I can
stand all these thrills.

                                      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 GOT NO BRAIN, who flew up 26 points in the rankings after mashing 
TAROBINZ MAUR like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in 
the top ten was TAROBINZ MAUR, who dropped 14 points after a disappointing (to say 
the least) bout with GOT NO BRAIN.  It's a proud day for the PASTA stable, as their 
warrior, FARFALE, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  Can you believe they are paying 
me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Proving again that OSKSI is not 
rated G, VANDELSHIMHAN TIRU of the GAMES LIBRARY slew the warrior BRAIN HEMORAGE in a 
rather bloody bout.  Let's look for a bloodfeud.  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.  Hasta la 
bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

It's weird to see this team with a 10-5 three-turn record, but that's what happens
when all five gladiators fight and other people are hit and miss with one or two.
All those wins against standbys.... -- the Games Librarians

As Voth noted last time, M. Chardinee loses quickly and smoothly.  It's good. --
Tarobinz Maur

The Kung-Fu Master tries harder, I guess.  But he still loses. -- Elvorn Marslan

The Venomous Concubine tried to kiss me at the end, but I held her off.  You have to
wonder about someone with a name like that. -- Mealndon Sorn

Furious Gorge -- They tell me any gorge can be bridged if someone really wants to do
it.  So. -- Vandelshimhan Tiru

We salute the tourney participants, especially Whirling Inselberg, Tourney Champion
in the Apprentices. -- Jorja and Games Library
