                                      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.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for QUI GONG, who flew up 21 points in the rankings after mashing DESERT 
PEARL like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top 
ten was CHUN MING, who dropped 13 points after a disappointing (to say the least) 
bout with HAZZAN KAZZAR.  Well, if ya don't shows up at the laundromat, ya can'ts 
wash yer clothes.  YAHOO WAHOO did not fight this week so its title was forfeit.  
It's a proud day for the TRADERS OF TROCAR stable, as their warrior, LEVANDAR, 
ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get 
a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.   
     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.  See ya next time I'm on this 
circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster
