                                      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!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for MIKEL, who flew up 11 points in the rankings after mashing 
SIR RENARD D'KENSIS like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it 
doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  JAKOB was bested by ROMIAD FLINDERO and drops 
12 points.  Our last turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to NURNIN THE UNLUCKY, 
and JUSTIN has made the way for a new Duelmaster!  With JUSTIN clearing the throne, 
THE LADY'S LIST of MIKEL takes a proud seat as TRANSEL's new Duelmaster, by virtue of 
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!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Here's some advice:  warriors 
with little wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick 
your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

30 December 2005
Just a reminder to all you online type people.  It is much appreciated if you send
your personals in PLAIN TEXT, rather than HTML or formatted text.  HAL, in his
infinite wisdom, doesn't DO formatting, which means having to unsnarl your personal
ads from bunches of extraneous...stuff.  So, if your e-mailer has a plain text
option, let it be your friend. -- Ed.
P.S.  Sometimes it's the formatted text which makes ads go astray.  Not often, but
sometimes.
