                                      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!  We 
now have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  REIGN now holds the crown 
and they are betting they can keep it.  Hey everybody, watch out for SUFFERIN' 
SAPPHO, who flew up 14 points in the rankings after mashing INK AND STEEL like a 
melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on 
the sands.  INK AND STEEL was overcame by SUFFERIN' SAPPHO and drops 5 points.  In 
front of all the crowds, FAINTLY FRANNIE took the Duelmaster's crown for hers own.  I 
give the bum two weeks.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this 
stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that TACKLE BOX was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of TACKLE BOX's warriors, 
I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch REIGN's act in the arena.  
Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from TACKLE BOX.   
     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.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in TRANSEL have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you 
worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster

Again a tourney is reported, again we salute the participants. -- Jorja and the
Pyscho Squad

Elminoth -- Oh... oh, yes... yes, I think that was right.  That was a good thing you
did.  Not even a lot of... blood.  That's good, blood always makes me dizzy.  I just
got tired, I do that, and you get to be duelmaster.  Yes, I'm almost sure that's
good. -- Faintly Frannie
P.S.  Isn't it?

Skip James -- Don't you believe it.  I'm not "sweet," that's just managerial
nonsense.  Lots of that around.  I should've been on her Homicidal Maniacs team in
Mordant, probably. -- Sweet Freddy

Elvora -- Wow, beautiful women!  I can't handle stuff like that.  I never know what
to say. -- Bashful Bennie
P.S.  Somehow, "Take me, I'm yours," seems a little crude.

Sonny Boy II -- Yeah, well, if I hadn't been so worried about Frannie, you
wouldn't've got me that easily.  But I was.  Somebody's got to look out for her, and
nobody else cares.  She's a delicate flower, see?  Needs to be treated gently.  This
gladiating might be the death of her. -- Angry Allen Angst
