                                      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 VIPER, who flew up 
20 points in the rankings after mashing FARLIN MEEKS like a melon.  Keep your eye on 
this beast.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was MEDAN QUIZZAR, who dropped 
16 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with KUNG-FU MASTER.  Going 
for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was MIDDLE WAY 15's HOLM 
JOUBERT, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by ROMO.  Advice to 
bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And who is this FARLIN MEEKS you ask, with 
31 points and a 7-10-0 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?).  Knowing when to use the right tactics at 
the proper time is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, there's the manager of the SOLVEN 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.  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
