                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
JHELUM.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for CRIME AND PUNISHMENT, who flew up 19 points in the rankings 
after mashing M. CHARDINEE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya know, some 
days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  THAT POTTER SAGA was beat by OSKSI 
BURGER and drops 11 points.  Well, everybody's pal IRONSIDE moved his record to 
28-6-0 by defeating RED HAMMER in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 6 
recognition points.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this 
stuff?   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the JHELUM arena.   
     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?   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  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
