                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for DROP DEAD LEGS, who flew up 14 points in 
the rankings after mashing SANTA like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya know, 
some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  GARSTEIL was beat by CHOPS and 
drops 12 points.  It's a proud day for the VAN DUEL stable, as their warrior, ATOMIC 
PUNK, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  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!  Ask not the elves for counsel, 
for they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in TRICORUS have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown 
Spymaster

Late with last turn's personals, but staggering in finally--

We see Runaway Jim all over the front page.  You'd think it was a milk carton!  Oh,
and we congratulate him on really getting away.  Graduation!  Amazing.

Frog Belly Lint -- Sorry to see the Shark's Man use you that way.  We, at least, have
nearly fond memories of you. -- the Dark Horsemen

Two-three, and we thank Shierrah for standbys.  This is it for last turn from us, and
we now return you to our regularly scheduled personals. -- Morning Dew

Three-two, how... ambivalent I feel about it.  Two of the wins and one loss were to
standbys.  Bah. -- Garsteil, master of the Persistant Beggar

register their warriors' races and/or favorite sayings by simply writing them on a 
separate piece of paper and submitting them to the Commission.  Each warrior may have 
up to 15 favorite sayings.  Each saying must be categorized Jeer, Gloat, Boredom, Ouch, 
Victory and may be up to 80 characters long.  For any questions, please contact the
