                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
SOLVEN.  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.  MIDDLE WAY 15 now holds the 
crown and they are betting they can keep it.  Hey everybody, watch out for LULU 
ORLENE, who flew up 14 points in the rankings after mashing CIVILIZED CRIMINAL like a 
melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was 
IRSON ORSON, who dropped 4 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with 
CIVILIZED CRIMINAL.  Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to VIRGINAL CONCUBINE, BUT 
HOLM JOUBERT is still the Duelmaster because he has the most recognition points!  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 SOLVEN 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, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in SOLVEN have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Okay, so I may not be the 
world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  See ya 
next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster
