                                      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!.  Say good-bye to CHILDREN OF LLYR, as they are 
pushed from the coveted top team spot by the LOST CAUSE stable.  Hey everybody, watch 
out for MAIRE MCANGUS, who flew up 21 points in the rankings after mashing BILBO like 
a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was 
BILBO, who dropped 18 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with MAIRE 
MCANGUS.  Well, everybody's pal CIVIL moved his record to 15-10-1 by defeating 
EVINDAL in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 4 recognition points.  Can you 
believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!   
     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, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in MURSKA have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Okay, so I may not be the 
world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Hasta la 
bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster
