                                      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 IPSWICH, who flew 
up 15 points in the rankings after mashing OHTAR PAES like a melon.  Keep your eye on 
this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  XYOKOR YAHL 
was defeated by COLLINGWOOD and drops 11 points.  Well, everybody's pal D'URVILLE 
moved his record to 13-4-1 by defeating DEELA ELLIS in the Duelmaster's Title Bout 
and gaining 5 recognition points.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion 
a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Here's some advice:  warriors with little 
wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  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

D'Urville -- Whoosh, close one!  I really didn't want to have to do a column.  Or
even a pedestal. -- Deela Ellis

     How about a flagstone?

Whakapapa -- Not today. -- Ghost of Rennor Simm
P.S.  It's too cold.

Collingwood -- Good gods, the way you suck up the skills is amazing. -- Xyokor Yahl

The Rirorni Chieftan is pathetic.  I wonder if his tribe has replaced him, or even
still exists at all? -- Saml Tyne

The Rirorni Looter didn't have any good stuff. -- Ohtar Paes

We refuse to salute Smirk, even though he participated in the tourney.  We're glad he
went 1-3.  He was insufferable. -- the Middle Way
P.S.  He probably still is.
