     There it is, Daniel, you didn't write a column, so you lost the title.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for TORN CLOTH, who flew up 15 points in the rankings after mashing 
DANGEROUS CRIMINAL like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  And falling like a 
basher in the top ten was BOOT PRINT, who dropped 8 points after a disappointing (to 
say the least) bout with CAPTURED ORC.  In front of all the crowds, DANIEL SILVERLOCK 
took the Duelmaster's crown for his 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 VEASTIAN arena.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes 
and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the VEASTIAN 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.  See ya next time 
I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster
