                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
LYRATILAN.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  We 
now have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  THE MIDDLE WAY 4 now 
holds the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  THE MIDDLE WAY 4 is no joke 
as it posted a 4-1-0 week advancing from 2nd place to 1st place.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for KOLTER NEETHE, who flew up 14 points in the rankings after mashing M. 
CHARDINEE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't 
pay to walk out on the sands.  GILGAMESH IDON lost to SAM SUNG and drops 9 points.  
The most challenged warrior this week was INDIGO.  If this keeps up, our Duelmaster's 
going to need more avoids!  SUE CHURZ got through to the Duelmaster this turn.  No 
doubt she was more than anxious to kick INDIGO's tail out of the throne!  In front of 
all the crowds, SUE CHURZ took the Duelmaster's crown for hers own.  I give the bum 
two weeks.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at 
bay.   
     Here is other news that is of note.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  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 LYRATILAN 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 real, 
and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster
