                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for DEBRA ELSITH, who flew up 22 points in 
the rankings after mashing KHALHUMS DWARF like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  
Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  ZAXXON lost to SUPREMACY 
and drops 13 points.  It's a proud day for the BODY OF MUSIC stable, as their 
warrior, JIMI APPENDIX, 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 BODY OF MUSIC was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of BODY OF MUSIC's 
warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  BODY OF 
MUSIC + Weapons That go Boom = TRIUMPH OF ANGELS + Avoid City.  Well just about 
everybody wants a piece of GARDNER HEDGE, who was this week's most challenged 
warrior.  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, A-1 went after HEAD NUGENT, 
who was higher by 19 points.  Well, when the dust settled, A-1 defeated HEAD NUGENT.  
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Ask not the elves for counsel, 
for they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the ALJAFIR giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  And remember, you 
can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one 
already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Talk about your dirty tricks!  Fenster was supposed to handle all the "public
relations" stuff, and he went and conspired with the Venomous Concubine to GET OUT OF
IT!  Leaving it to ME!  Just because I got the only win on the team, *I* have to do
the personal.  I should be the one resting, and the OTHERS should be doing personals,
but will they listen to "fair"?  Not much! -- Morris Ormran
