                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
XOCHITHLAN.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  
Hey everybody, watch out for HOTHAM, who flew up 20 points in the rankings after 
mashing BETTINA CHIM like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a 
basher in the top ten was BASH ARTADI, who dropped 14 points after a disappointing 
(to say the least) bout with HORVANTH IRNDE.  Going for the gusto and coming up with 
aught but bloody knuckles was XOCHITHLAN's RIRORNI OFFICER, who was turned away from 
the Duelmastership by WOXTON.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a 
bigger halberd!   
     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!  Knowing when to use the right 
tactics at the proper time is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     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.  See ya next time I'm on this 
circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Steel Wolves 2 -- So is this try #2.  Welcome to this great arena.  If you need any
help or have any questions just ask and I will do what I can to help. -- the Mun mgn.
Kiwi Connection

All -- Four-one turn; congratulations to the Middle Way for preventing the five-oh
sweep.  Xho never had a chance (his blows would've really hurt, lemme tell ya).  Does
anyone have any in-depth info on strikers and slashers?  I have quite a few of them
running, so they're what I'm really looking for, but any and all info on any and all
fighting styles would be highly appreciated... like the packets you both have sent.
:)  Thank you! -- Lobo and the Wolves

Steel Wolves -- Good spotlight.  Thanks for taking the time. -- Jorja and the Middle
Way

Hobson -- This works for me.  Maybe I can get a winning record here! -- Ulrik Venn

Hokowhitu -- I brought lunch, I had a good book to read, not a problem. -- Bettina
Chim

Hotham -- You'd think that at this time of year, a hot ham would be appealing.
But... no, I couldn't face it.  Too greasy. -- Salome Torene

Desslock Cain -- That was fairly embarrassing.  I guess I need to practice more. --
Wovern Yansy

Jalabhaus Xho -- Could my aim be worse?  I was aiming for your right leg. -- Horvanth
Irnde
