                                      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!  We now 
have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  SAVAGE HORDE now holds the 
crown and they are betting they can keep it.  Hey everybody, watch out for 
SKULLHAMMER, who flew up 18 points in the rankings after mashing BUNKER BILL like a 
melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on 
the sands.  KAI-GHAN was subdued by VENOMOUS VIXEN and drops 31 points.  Try as hard 
as the TRIBAL COUNCIL stable might, they were unable to find their warrior (and 
ex-Duelmaster) PONTIAC before this week's fights.  In front of all the crowds, 
DARKCLAW took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  4 out 
of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.  
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the JHELUM arena.   
     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, there's the manager of the JHELUM giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  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

either instructions to me, or a description of what would happen to me.  I took
option one. -- Bunker Bill

An Ambitious Guard.  Easy going. -- Fenris Khan
P.S.  How come he's an Osksian?
