                                      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!  Say 
good-bye to THE BAD BUNNIES, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the 
DEVIATION stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for SUN TREE, who flew up 22 points in 
the rankings after mashing KHALHUMS DWARF like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  
Well, if ya don't shows up at the laundromat, ya can'ts wash yer clothes.  PETER 
RABBIT did not fight this week so his title was forfeit.  In front of all the crowds, 
QUEEN OF COOL took the Duelmaster's crown for hers 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.  Here's a 
song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad THE BAD BUNNIES?   Big bad THE BAD 
BUNNIES.  Big bad THE BAD BUNNIES.  JHELUM's afraid of the big bad THE BAD BUNNIES.  
Tra la la la la!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch DEVIATION's act in the 
arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from THE BAD BUNNIES.  BEAST 
MODE of DEVIATION had better have a good reason for challenging down 9 points in a 
challenge which he won.  I thought BEAST MODE showed great skill and promise when he 
beat COTTONBALL.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  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.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  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

Well, okay, the Dogs went three-two without me.  That's good, but why couldn't they
have done it when I was still HERE?  I like to gloat as much as anybody, you know. --
Bunker Bill

Those Bunnies are SERIOUSLY BAD! -- Sun Tree and Bran mac Morn

Stone -- Ah!  Prophecy fulfilled!  It was foreseen when I was born, or sometime way
back there, I don't remember it myself, that I would make a stone weep.  And I DID!
Thanks.  Um, probably thanks.  I wouldn't want it to seem like I had nothing left to
live for. -- Raj Fenris

Oh, Beggars.  Bah. -- Leon from Napa

1/2 Full -- If you were more full than that, would it mean more skills for your
