                                      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!.  Advancing in the rankings was RONIN who went 
from last turn's 179-181-17, to this week's record of 183-182-17.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for MERTON HANKS, who flew up 15 points in the rankings after mashing 
DANGEROUS CRIMINAL like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a 
basher in the top ten was AILLENDEI, who dropped 11 points after a disappointing (to 
say the least) bout with ANKH.  It's a proud day for the ALL-UGLY TEAM stable, as 
their warrior, WILLIE MCGEE, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  Advice to 
bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the TRICORUS arena.  And hey, 
kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid RONIN, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does 
TRICORUS really have that many liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch AMAZON 
ELITE's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from 
RONIN.   
     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, there's the manager of the TRICORUS giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  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

Zao -- You shouldn't become careless!  That could get you killed out there. --
Aillendei

Samurai -- Yes, well, there it is.  I may be lower-ranked, but I'm not completely
lacking in skills. -- Galbei

Grandmaster -- A last dance before I leave, and I bid you farewell.  Hope the skills
compensate. -- Zalgei

Jacinthe -- Damn.  Give women swords, and they get uppity. -- Margalh

Ed. -- Yes, but people keep telling me that the Tricorus area is arid and desert-
like.  Not that the said people have ever seen a REAL desert, but there aren't a
whole lot of trees around. -- Margalh

To all those lookin' for some easy pickins:  I, Elfwine, manager of The Shallowship,
the most feared team in all of Jhelum, invite all who seek wide open spaces for pubs
and other such establishments of limited debauchery, to visit this deserted city and
help me clear up some of the dust.  I'm just about ready to have my guys face off
against each other to get some new action.  Guess I'd better join a tournament or
something...hmmmm, there's a thought.
