                                      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 KALABOOSHA, who flew up 13 points in the 
rankings after mashing THE USEROUS MERCHANT like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy. 
Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was ISLANDERS' 
KIRRALA, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by DERELICT.  Advice to 
bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were 
votes, ROSE SHELL would be president.  Although it may be a contest she doesn't want 
to win.  Challenging down 16 points was I'M A BASHER.  Pretty soon he'll be using two 
shields and selling 'T.P.:  The only way to clean up' pins.  Definition of petty:  
I'M A BASHER won victory over ROSE SHELL, a mismatch of 16 points.  Getting lots of 
flowers from sympathetic fans was STINGAREE, who was successfully challenged by I'M 
POWERLESS who had a mere 20 points more than STINGAREE.  Here is a definition of 
happiness:  STINGAREE subdued I'M POWERLESS to go from 35 to 51 recognition points.   
     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

Islanders -- The 12 step program of rehabilitation isn't working very well, so we're
trying another program.  This program involves accepting who you are and modifying it
slightly to become more of what you should be.  In this case, we're adapting a new
fighting style which is sure to be a hit soon.  Of course, it is the 'Parry Bash'
fighting style, long overlooked as an effective fighting style. -- Bashaholics

P.S . Don't ask me why or how I'm Powerless managed to parry.  I doubt it will ever
happen again.  At least I'm a Basher has an excuse for his parrying. --
