                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  We now have a 
new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  QUESTIONS now holds the crown and 
they are betting they can keep it.  Hey everybody, watch out for HANK, who flew up 21 
points in the rankings after mashing GALDOR O'HARE like a melon.  Keep your eye on 
this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was QUIZBOY, who dropped 17 
points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with I DRANK WHAT?.  Well, 
everybody's pal TACK TACK moved its record to 13-2-1 by defeating YES? in the 
Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 18 recognition points.  Can you believe they are 
paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     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.   
     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?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Hasta la bye-bye. 
(Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster
