                                      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!.  Hey everybody, watch out for RUWANA, who flew 
up 10 points in the rankings after mashing OSKSI NOBLE like a melon.  Keep your eye 
on this gal.  Well, everybody's pal BIG SIX moved his record to 13-9-0 by defeating 
KHALHUMS DWARF in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 2 recognition points.  An 
apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad THE FAMILY?  Big bad THE FAMILY.  Big bad THE FAMILY.  VEASTIAN's afraid of 
the big bad THE FAMILY.  Tra la la la la!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch 
FAMOUS HURLERS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running 
from THE FAMILY.  Well just about everybody wants a piece of ZILLA KHIRNAJ, who was 
this week's most challenged warrior.  Challenging down 33 points was THE BIG UNIT.  
Pretty soon he'll be using two shields and selling 'T.P.:  The only way to clean up' 
pins.  Definition of petty:  THE BIG UNIT defeated ZILLA KHIRNAJ, a mismatch of 33 
points.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Here's some advice:  warriors 
with little wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     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.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you 
enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be 
leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster
