                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Hey everybody, watch out for BUZZ GRIMHULT, who 
flew up 15 points in the rankings after mashing TRUE CRIME like a melon.  Keep your 
eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was ZYANE, who dropped 8 
points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with MOTHER GHEA NEWS.  In front 
of all the crowds, DOTTLE took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum 
two weeks.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad VISIONS V2?  Big bad VISIONS V2.  Big bad VISIONS V2.  ZUWAYZA's afraid of 
the big bad VISIONS V2.  Tra la la la la!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch MAN 
OR BEAST?'s act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from 
VISIONS V2.  And who is this TRUE CRIME you ask, with 27 points and a 4-15-0 record.  
Ooh, the tales I could tell!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they 
will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     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.  Its been 
real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

One-four?  That hardly seems worth talking about.  Although I must admit that there
is something satisfying about seeing True Crime "devastated" by the Dangerous
Criminal.  I warned him he was messing with Bad People, but he didn't listen.  Pish.
