                                      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.  TRADERS OF TROCAR now holds the crown and they are betting they can 
keep it.  Don't these new hotshots make you sick (or, if they fought you, hurt)?  
WARRIORS, on their very first turn, went 2-1-0.  Hey everybody, watch out for 
ALLERDAE CHAN, who flew up 24 points in the rankings after mashing THE COLLECTOR like 
a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was 
SAMILDAR, who dropped 4 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with 
SHAGORNAN WILD MAN.  Try as hard as the SAI FULLAH stable might, they were unable to 
find their warrior (and ex-Duelmaster) MATEEN before this week's fights.  In front of 
all the crowds, VARDIN ABEQ took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum 
two weeks.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at 
bay.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  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 TROCAR have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Okay, so I may not be the 
world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  See ya 
next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Mateen -- Oh, good, you still have the title.  I really didn't want to do a column,
and Jorja would have insisted. -- Korasim

Dawud -- Ah, a win, a skill, not too bad. -- Vardin Abeq
P.S.  I don't ask a lot of life, that's my uncle's line.

It's no wonder the Warrior Mage is a wuss.  If you want to do something well and work
at it, maybe you can, but if you want to do TWO things well, forget it. -- Samildar
P.S.  Okay, there are a rare few who can do two things well, but they're REALLY rae.

Hell Girl -- Some random matches are a little TOO random, aren't they? -- Allerdae
Chan
P.S.  But you should have learned more than one skill.
