                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
TRICORUS.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for FROG BELLY LINT, who flew up 20 points in the rankings after 
mashing MOONDARK like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Try as hard as the SEA 
DOGS stable might, they were unable to find their warrior (and ex-Duelmaster) ROWBOAT 
CAPTAIN before this week's fights.  In front of all the crowds, FROG BELLY LINT took 
the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  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!  
Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad SEA DOGS?  Big bad SEA DOGS.  
Big bad SEA DOGS.  TRICORUS' afraid of the big bad SEA DOGS.  Tra la la la la!  Okay, 
so I may not be funny, but catch BATTLE FROGS 03-13's act in the arena.  Those 
acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from SEA DOGS.   
     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.  Its been real, and its been fun, 
but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Sorry, I'm running really short of time today.  (What else is new?  But even shorter
today.)  So no personals from me.  I'll try to do better next time, but no promises,
the new definition of "normal" is a lot busier than the old one.  Or else I'm slowing
down... nah, it couldn't be that! -- Jorja
