                                      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 FLASHER, who flew up 21 points in the rankings after mashing WORBRIN 
like a melon.  Keep your eye on this beast.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to 
walk out on the sands.  WORBRIN was bested by FLASHER and drops 18 points.  Well, 
everybody's pal SPUTTERBUZZ moved its record to 13-5-0 by defeating FAINTLY FRANNIE 
in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 10 recognition points.  Advice to 
bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid PSYCHO SQUAD, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does TRANSEL really have that many 
liars?  For those of you who like math, try this one:  PSYCHO SQUAD + Weapons That go 
Boom = REIGN + Avoid City.   
     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.  See ya 
next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

was too much for me.  I think I need to go lie down. -- Faintly Frannie
P.S.  I'm not sure... those skills... I don't know if I can use them.  Attack,
decisiveness... so... FORWARD.
