                                      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.  Advancing in 
the rankings was RAISING R'LYEH who went from last turn's 65-46-9, to this week's 
record of 68-47-9.  Hey everybody, watch out for VOICES IN MY HEAD, who flew up 18 
points in the rankings after mashing SARALAI like a melon.  Keep your eye on this 
guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  SARALAI was 
overcame by VOICES IN MY HEAD and drops 14 points.  In front of all the crowds, 
VARGOI took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  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 TRICORUS arena.  Here's a 
song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad DARK HORSEMEN?   Big bad DARK HORSEMEN.  
Big bad DARK HORSEMEN.  TRICORUS' afraid of the big bad DARK HORSEMEN.  Tra la la la 
la!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch RAISING R'LYEH's act in the arena.  Those 
acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from DARK HORSEMEN.  Well just about 
everybody wants a piece of SARALAI, who was this week's most challenged warrior.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  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.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Shierah!  That Kung-Fu Master drives me NUTS.  He does these totally unreasonable
things like parrying with his bare hand, gloats, and doesn't even notice the next
blow coming in.  It would serve him right to get killed out there. -- Vargoi

Coloroutofspace -- I never expected you to be so HAIRY.  But I just remembered the
advice of some spy reporter or another and took a dagger to shave you close.  I think
you look better with hair. -- Saralai

Cult Members?  Pfhui.  Phfui?  However it's spelled.  Child's play. -- Kalmbargh

The Osksi Noble was pathetic. -- Garanh
P.S.  But we all knew that.

The Cult Member did no better against me. -- Tialvai Graywind
