                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in LAPUR. 
Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey everybody, 
watch out for HOMER, who flew up 20 points in the rankings after mashing NIGHT 
STALKER like a melon.  Keep your eye on this beast.  And falling like a basher in the 
top ten was NIGHT STALKER, who dropped 13 points after a disappointing (to say the 
least) bout with HOMER.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody 
knuckles was CARDOW HUNTERS' RAINSTORM, who was turned away from the Duelmastership 
by SHOCK AND AWWW.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff? 
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS, please raise you 
hand.  Wow.  Does LAPUR really have that many liars?  For those of you who like math, 
try this one:  GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS + Weapons That go Boom = LIVING DEAD + Avoid City.  
Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, G.I. DON'T KNOW would be president.  
Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes 
and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in LAPUR have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  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
