                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for KRAIT, who flew up 17 points in the rankings after mashing FERRIA HOUGH 
like a melon.  Keep your eye on this beast.  And falling like a basher in the top ten 
was JIMMY THE HAND, who dropped 10 points after a disappointing (to say the least) 
bout with FRANCIS THUG.  Try as hard as the SERPENTS' HOLD stable might, they were 
unable to find their warrior (and ex-Duelmaster) RATTLER before this week's fights.  
It's a proud day for the SERPENTS' HOLD stable, as their warrior, KRAIT, ascended the 
Duelmaster's throne.  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!  
Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, FERRIA HOUGH would be president.  
Although it may be a contest she doesn't want to win.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  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 ROCANIS 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.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can 
pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Man, people dying on every side!  This is the time for a rabbit's foot--so we can run
away faster!

Three-two seems more natural, and it isn't all that bad, either.  At least, not for
us.  we try to keep to the middle, you know, but on the high side of it when we can.
