                                      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!.  Hey everybody, watch out for HORNET, who flew 
up 17 points in the rankings after mashing READY EDDIE like a melon.  Keep your eye 
on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  READY 
EDDIE was bested by HORNET and drops 12 points.  Try as hard as the THE WILLBURYS 13 
stable might, they were unable to find their warrior (and ex-Duelmaster) FALKYNOR 
before this week's fights.  In front of all the crowds, GARM 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!   
     Here is other news that is of note.   
     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?   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  Hasta la 
bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster
