                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
KALTOS.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  THE 
MIDDLE WAY 5 is no joke as it posted a 4-1-0 week advancing from 4th place to 3rd 
place.  Hey everybody, watch out for ELINDE GOSS, who flew up 12 points in the 
rankings after mashing HAPPY ENDING like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya 
know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  HAPPY ENDING was defeated 
by ELINDE GOSS and drops 3 points.  Well, everybody's pal JILES moved his record to 
10-3-0 by defeating BUCK NAKED in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 11 
recognition points.  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!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  This round goes to KALTOS, their 0-0-0 warrior, AMBITIOUS 
GUARD slew the 10-4-0 SHANNO.  Stay tuned next week to see what happens.  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.  See ya 
next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Buck Naked -- Very off-putting, especially when everything is so small.  I hardly
knew where to look, which made it hard to strike. -- Gloria Imbro

Shanno -- Sorry, still not enough garlic.  Doesn't ANYONE know how to cook? -- Fergus
Hill
P.S.  Or at least onions.

Fat Sheriff -- You run a massage parlor, too?  What an...innovative way to support
your department. -- Jeri Lough

Hot Oil Massage -- Urk!  I've been deep fat fried! -- Elinde Goss

Happy Ending -- YOU may think so. -- Orverd Quill

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
