                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
KOLACT.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Say 
good-bye to THE CLUB, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the 
VIKINGS stable.  ABOMINATION is no joke as it posted a 4-1-2 week advancing from 3rd 
place to 3rd place.  Hey everybody, watch out for DEIMOON FARR, who flew up 18 points 
in the rankings after mashing JIGGA like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And 
falling like a basher in the top ten was JIGGA, who dropped 18 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with DEIMOON FARR.  It's a proud day for the 
VIKINGS stable, as their warrior, SKYHAWK, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  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 ABOMINATION was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of ABOMINATION's 
warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  
ABOMINATION + Weapons That go Boom = VIKINGS + Avoid City.  Well just about everybody 
wants a piece of MUGSY, who was this week's most challenged warrior.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  For those of you who missed it, Death 
showed up, grabbed HOWYL MONSON by the ear and took him away to a place where he 
won't need a coat.  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no. 
Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in KOLACT have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  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

All -- I am Padre, returning after 6 years absence.  I threw away all my Duel II info
on the things I need the most and I hope there is someone who will help me out with
charts, etc.  I don't have anything.  Like what are the abbreviations for armor; how
many skills do you get for training an attribute to certain levels; the weight of
armor & weapons; how many skills does it take to go from expert toa advanced expert
and upwards; how do I figure a warriors carry ability; I mean everything.  I had it
all accumulated but no more.  I could download it or maybe you could send it by
email.  I am at rmhopperjr@gmail.com.  Anything you have will help.  Thanks! -- Padre

     Ask the Commission office to send you the Consortium's information packet.

Cerisa Bright -- I KEEL YOU! -- Muslim Xtrmist
P.S.  Why, yes, I am very abominable.

T. Explora

El Presidente -- I like it better when I swing first. -- Human Centipede

Hastighet -- I KEEL YOU TOO! -- Muzlymb Extremist

Monzar Orbisar -- Never mind.  I found the map.  I had accidentally used it as a
tampon.  Sorry for any misunderstandings this may have led to. -- Dora T. Explora

Dora T. Explora -- Eh?  What rope?  I didn't see a rope.  Who let you bring that onto
the sands? -- Monzar Orbisar

Dora T. Explora -- Too bad you didn't go against Monzar again.  He's the one with the
map. -- Deimoon Farr

Ulf Sunderhelm -- Well, I just have to face it, you're a devastating man.  Any time,
any place. -- Iayelle Orbin

Ciric -- What is this, the Summer of the Vikings?  Who's been offering you Danegeld?
-- Monzar Orbisar

H to the Izzo -- Someone on our team had to get a win, and I decided that someone was
me.  Thanks for cooperating. -- Howyl Monson

Slim -- Well... for a Shew, maybe. -- Cerisa Bright
