                                      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 DAWE GONNIT, who flew up 20 points in the rankings after 
mashing EMBEZZLING SCRIBE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some 
days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  CRIME AND PUNISHMENT was beat by 
VETERAN MERCENARY and drops 10 points.  In front of all the crowds, MAT'ARI took the 
Duelmaster's crown for hers own.  I give the bum two weeks.  Can you believe they are 
paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  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 JHELUM have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- 
The Unknown Spymaster

Warburton -- One slap on the wrist from a girl, and you quit?  What a sissy! --
Bestla

Wheel of Time -- Better you than me.  If *I* had the title, Jorja would expect me to
write something, but your manager doesn't care.  You lucky dog! -- Mat'ari

Crime And Punishment -- You've got some kind of secret alliance with the Sioux, don't
you?  I suspected that. -- Cusster

Osksi Burger -- Ugh, maybe I'll become a vegetarian.  You didn't sit well on my
stomach at all, in fact, you DANCED on it with SPIKED BOOTS.  Ouch.  Good fight,
actually. -- Blind Betsy

Bestla -- And that makes us an oh-fer turn, and *I* will get the blame because I had
the last loss.  Is this fair? -- Warburton
