                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in ZUKAL. 
Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey everybody, 
watch out for BOMBARZOL, who flew up 7 points in the rankings after mashing THROUGH 
THE WINDOW like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Well, everybody's pal KEEL 
HAULER moved his record to 9-1-0 by defeating KUNG-FU MASTER in the Duelmaster's 
Title Bout and gaining 9 recognition points.  Advice to bashers--never force 
anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  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.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real 
fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster
