                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
VEASTIAN.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for CAT'S CRADLE, who flew up 26 points in the rankings after 
mashing MARCO THE KNIFE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a 
basher in the top ten was MARCO THE KNIFE, who dropped 21 points after a 
disappointing (to say the least) bout with CAT'S CRADLE.  Well, everybody's pal BAIN 
moved his record to 13-0-0 by defeating ARCHERS OF LOAF in the Duelmaster's Title 
Bout and gaining 16 recognition points.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold 
to deliver this stuff?   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the VEASTIAN arena.  Here's a 
song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad ORDER?  Big bad ORDER.  Big bad ORDER.  
VEASTIAN's afraid of the big bad ORDER.  Tra la la la la!  And you guys like to boo 
me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause FAMOUS HURLERS beats feet every time ORDER 
smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, 
KHARIJANH would be president.  Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.  
Challenging down 21 points was CYCLONE.  Pretty soon he'll be using two shields and 
selling 'T.P.:  The only way to clean up' pins.  Definition of petty:  CYCLONE bested 
KHARIJANH, a mismatch of 21 points.  Getting lots of flowers from sympathetic fans 
was LOLITA MARIA, who was successfully challenged by THE BIG UNIT who had a mere 51 
points more than LOLITA MARIA.  Definition of petty:  THE BIG UNIT subdued LOLITA 
MARIA, a mismatch of 51 points.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and 
take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in VEASTIAN have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  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
