                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for TRAIN RAIL, who flew up 19 points in the 
rankings after mashing ANONYMOUS like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And 
falling like a basher in the top ten was HAMFIST, who dropped 27 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with KUNG-FU MASTER.  Our Duelmaster has lost, 
folks, lost to CONVICTED ASSASSIN, BUT THE WEEPER is still the Duelmaster because he 
has the most recognition points!  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a 
bigger halberd!   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!   
     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?   
     Well, there's the manager of the LIN TIRIAN giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Hasta la bye-bye. 
(Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster
