                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  We now have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  DUDS 
now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  It was a tough week for 
MAESTUS MORTALES, to drop 6 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for 
DOLT, who flew up 21 points in the rankings after mashing EMBEZZLING SCRIBE like a 
melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on 
the sands.  LUG was beat by BURIED TREASURE and drops 4 points.  Our battling 
duelmaster ENDU ENDU has managed to hold the title, fending off KUNG-FU MASTER's none 
too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, ERINIKA.  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!  
Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad FOUND IN  THE SAND?  Big bad 
FOUND IN THE SAND.  Big bad FOUND IN THE SAND.  ERINIKA's afraid of the big bad FOUND 
IN THE SAND.  Tra la la la la!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your 
rasberries, cause DUDS beats feet every time FOUND IN THE SAND smiles at them.  Try 
farming, eh?  And who is this BURIED TREASURE you ask, with 64 points and a 11-6-0 
record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Knowing when to use the right tactics at 
the proper time is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in ERINIKA have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat 
it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

To those involved, no, I have not abandoned your stories.  But I've been letting them
drift, and that has to stop, so I am taking the time to make sure that I know where
they are going, more than just "what happens next" dreamed up on the fly, before
resuming work on them.  No new stories will be started until at least one of the old
ones has concluded, for the same reason:  quantity can't substitute for quality.
Your patience in this matter is appreciated. -- the Scribe
