                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for DEAPTH BOMB, who flew up 9 points in the 
rankings after mashing PROTAGORAS like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And 
falling like a basher in the top ten was CARLOTTA, who dropped 8 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with TIDDLES.  In front of all the crowds, 
SWEET BETSEY took the Duelmaster's crown for hers own.  I give the bum two weeks.  An 
apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the RIZTAB arena.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  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.  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

Pythagorus -- The Royal Arena Schedule-Maker must be lower than a snake's belly in a
wagon rut...couple more of those and I'm gonna get sick of looking at you. -- Billy

Tiannary -- I'm back, just to firmly imprint my countenance.  But I got the feeling
you recognized me when you turned the old tide on the old repulsive one.  Makes me
feel old. -- Rogan

Tarliss -- Sha-Zam!!!  Hand me down my sharpening stone. (hand me down my shoes) --
Marlow

Corianelle -- The crowd roared, then they sat back down...then on their feet roaring
again.  I don't think they really cared who won. -- Tiddles

Democritus -- Wow, what a lot of action in that one!  I got exhausted all over again
just reading about it. -- Sweet Betsey
P.S.  And I hadn't realized I knew so many cool moves.  I might have to pay more
attention to the stuff I'm practicing.

Marlow -- This is just jealous on your part, isn't it?  Because I'm a foot taller
than you.  Suffer, bub, the humility is good for you. -- Tariliss
P.S.  Or if you can't stand it, go buy some feet.  I hear they come in on every tide
on the lake, which is weird because you wouldn't expect a little lake like that to
HAVE tides, I mean, even the Storm Sea doesn't have much in the way of tides.
Cheese.

Repulsive Rogan -- Wow, I didn't think it was possible for you to increase your
repulsiveness.  This is incredible.  There must be some use for it, but I can't
imagine what....  Hmm.  Stand at the front door and repel bill collectors?  Or at
least in-laws.  You might be able to make a good career out of this. -- Tiannary

Tiddles -- Tell your manager from me that I think his gross over-playing of the
"cuteness" effect is SOOO unfair. -- Corianelle
P.S.  And it's just amazing that he can--or you can--make it work on such a tall
person.

Bolgar was indeed The Foolish in this match.  He should have stayed in bed today. --
Carlotta
