                                      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!.  We now have a new top team for all of you guys 
to dogpile on.  STREET WALKERS now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep 
it.  Hey everybody, watch out for GLITRINA, who flew up 21 points in the rankings 
after mashing EMBEZZLING SCRIBE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  And 
falling like a basher in the top ten was ELISHAR, who dropped 15 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with MINI DRIVER.  Well, everybody's pal 
CALLOUS COURTNEY moved hers record to 13-2-1 by defeating VENOMOUS CONCUBINE in the 
Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 5 recognition points.  Can you believe they are 
paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were 
votes, ELISHAR would be president.  Although it may be a contest it doesn't want to 
win.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and 
take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  Hasta la 
bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

All -- I am getting together as many Duelmaster players as possible to play in a game
of Hyborian War as a change of pace.  We already have 17 players that are interested
and we are trying to get as many as possible involved before I submit the list to
RSI.  I am collecting the names and top 3 kingdoms that the players are interested in
and submitting it myself so we can all play in the same game.  If you are interested
PM me in the DuelII Forums at Tripwire or email me at azaer123@comcast.net. --
