                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
CLIFFHOME.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for MUSTANG TOM, who flew up 23 points in the rankings after 
mashing DANGEROUS CRIMINAL like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some 
days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  NILISMARIN SALM was beat by VENOMOUS 
CONCUBINE and drops 1 points.  Our battling duelmaster NORVANDARRO KREN has managed 
to hold the title, fending off VENOMOUS CONCUBINE's none too subtle advances.  Better 
luck next time, CLIFFHOME.  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.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Knowing when to use the right tactics at the proper time 
is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in CLIFFHOME 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.  Its been 
real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Cheese louise with spinach and feta cheese!  If there's one thing more than another
that takes the fun out of sweeping the front page of the newsletter, it's doing so
because NOBODY ELSE AT ALL except standbys is fighting.  And we went 3-2 agains them.
This is seriously embarrassing. -- Norvandarro Kren, duelmaster by default

ALL -- MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL IN ALASTARI!!!
