                                      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!.  It looks like the guys(?) at MIDDLE WAY 16 had 
a good week as they went 3-1-0 to put them in 2nd place.  I guess steroids help!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for VONNER WESS, who flew up 16 points in the rankings after 
mashing TOM BAKER like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a 
basher in the top ten was TOM BAKER, who dropped 13 points after a disappointing (to 
say the least) bout with VONNER WESS.  Well, everybody's pal COUNTER OFFER moved his 
record to 7-2-0 by defeating FALLING LEAF in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 
28 recognition points.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and 
avoid aiming at that location.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that AUTUMN SAGA was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of AUTUMN SAGA's 
warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  AUTUMN 
SAGA + Weapons That go Boom = VIKING LINGO + Avoid City.   
     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?   
     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

other one. -- Barlo Chells

loaves."  Bread with a filling of meats and other ingredients.  Rather tasty,
actually.  Do you do something like that? -- Vonner Wess

Colin Baker -- Or, for that matter, do YOU bake good things?  I could sure use
something good to eat! -- Wallis Yent

Peter Davison -- Huh.  Not a delightful experience. -- Zakalus Ardon
