                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in IAYE.  
Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Coming up with 
a solid 4-1-0 outing, OMNITRIX has advanced 4 places in the rankings.  It looks like 
the guys(?) at INHUMANS III had a good week as they went 4-0-0 to put them in 2nd 
place.  I guess steroids help!  Hey everybody, watch out for GORRAXE, who flew up 15 
points in the rankings after mashing FIREBALL like a melon.  Keep your eye on this 
guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  ROSE lost to 
SWAMPFIRE and drops 9 points.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but 
bloody knuckles was YUPPIE HORDE's TEN GALLON HAT, who was turned away from the 
Duelmastership by ABIGAIL.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a 
bigger halberd!   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the IAYE arena.  Here's a 
song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad RANDOM?  Big bad RANDOM.  Big bad RANDOM. 
IAYE's afraid of the big bad RANDOM.  Tra la la la la!  Okay, so I may not be funny, 
but catch LENPROS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at 
running from RANDOM.  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, FOOL would be 
president.  Although it may be a contest it 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!  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may 
encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, there's the manager of the IAYE giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  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

  Armsilbar liked being Master of the Stronghold Academy, all except for one part.

He had to talk to Sheila Greywand at least once a week, usually oftener.  She was 
getting more erratic.  More chaotic.  That would be the effect of the Grey Wand.  It 
was a powerful chaotic artifact, and she kept it with her always.  She had turned his 
predecessor into a frog--or 164 frogs--and then summoned all the members of the 
Academy to a frog-leg dinner.  That had been, ah, bad.  Yes, very bad.
     But here he was entering her chambers.  With, well, it couldn't be called GOOD 
news.  And the look she turned on him--she was in an orcish mood today, all scowling 
black brows and bared fangs--that made him nervous.  But some things had to be done.  
He cleared his throat, which seemed to have a frog in it, and said, "It's about the 
next tourney prize, Lady.  I know it's more than two months away, but this isn't too 
soon to start thinking of some new, exciting prize--"
     "I have no intention of thinking about 'new, exciting prizes'," she snapped.  Or 
was that a snarl?  "These managers are getting above themselves.  They act like I 
created the arena system for their amusement!  There will be one standard prize for 
all the tourneys.  Just one."
     He had a horrible vision of all the managers walking out in a mass.  Perhaps it 
wouldn't be that bad, but it wouldn't be good.  And if he said the wrong thing, well, 
the next frog-leg dinner might be him. "Er, ah, perhaps a specific prize for each 
tourney--a spring prize, a summer prize, and so on?  The managers expect--"
     She exploded.  A literal explosion, the force of the blast blew his hair off.  
She said several things in an obsolete dialect of orcish.  He stepped backward, then 
again.  The blast had blown the door open behind him.  If he could make it out before 
something else happened--
     "Ribbit!  Ribbit!"
