                                      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 GARCIA, who flew up 21 points in the rankings after mashing ENVANALIN 
like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk 
out on the sands.  ENVANALIN was bested by GARCIA and drops 12 points.  Our battling 
duelmaster LEAPS INTO THE AIR has managed to hold the title, fending off GREEN ROCK's 
none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, SAND DANCERS.  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?).  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 JADE MOUNTAIN have 
no sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make 
some tracks.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud 
boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster
