                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Hey everybody, watch out for MANUTE BOL, who 
flew up 28 points in the rankings after mashing CRAY DAIZY like a melon.  Keep your 
eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was CRAY DAIZY, who 
dropped 25 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with MANUTE BOL.  
Well, everybody's pal HELEN KELLER moved hers record to 15-4-0 by defeating WINDMILL 
WILLY in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 4 recognition points.  Advice to 
bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad ERRATA?  Big bad ERRATA.  Big 
bad ERRATA.  NIATOLI ISLAND's afraid of the big bad ERRATA.  Tra la la la la!  For 
those of you who like math, try this one:  ERRATA + Weapons That go Boom = 
HALLOWIENERS + Avoid City.   
     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 NIATOLI ISLAND 
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.  Hasta 
la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster
