                                      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!.  Say good-bye to DUNCAN'S BEST, as they are 
pushed from the coveted top team spot by the THE INSTITUTE stable.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for SCREAMING CHILD, who flew up 13 points in the rankings after mashing 
MORDANT DESERTER like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Well, everybody's pal 
BEAST FEAST moved his record to 11-1-0 by defeating KHALHUMS DWARF in the 
Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 4 recognition points.  Advice to bashers--never 
force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad DUNCAN'S BEST?  Big bad DUNCAN'S BEST.  Big bad DUNCAN'S BEST.  LIN TIRIAN's 
afraid of the big bad DUNCAN'S BEST.  Tra la la la la!  For those of you who like 
math, try this one:  DUNCAN'S BEST + Weapons That go Boom = THE INSTITUTE + Avoid 
City.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  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.  And remember, you can pick your 
friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The 
Unknown Spymaster

From:       The Office of Accurate Census Reporting, Gladiatorial Commission
To:         All Managers

In the interest of preserving our natural resources and preventing managerial writer's 
cramp, the census form has been eliminated, effective immediately.  Managers may 
register their warriors' races and/or favorite sayings by simply writing them on a 
separate piece of paper and submitting them to the Commission.  Each warrior may have 
up to 15 favorite sayings.  Each saying must be categorized Jeer, Gloat, Boredom, Ouch, 
Victory and may be up to 70 characters long.  For any questions, please contact the 
Gladiatorial Commission. 

             ATTENTION:  ALL MANAGERS WHO ARE ATTENDING THE FACE-TO-FACE

If you plan to attend the Winter Face-to-Face in Phoenix, please let Customer Service 
know.  We will hold your turns for the few days preceding the tourney, starting with 
anything that would mail out on the previous Saturday.  (This means that games due on 
Thursday the 9th (which would mail on Friday) would probably mail to you, but games 
due on the 10th and thereafter will be held and delivered to you at the tournament.  
This way, you won't have to worry about not receiving a critical turn before you 
depart for Newark, and you also don't have to worry about whether you can get a 
reprint before the first turn of the tournament is due.  

See you there!
