                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
TRICORUS.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for I DRANK WHAT?, who flew up 18 points in the rankings after 
mashing SGT. HATRED like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it 
doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  WHY was defeated by KUNG FU MASTER and drops 
13 points.  In front of all the crowds, WHO 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!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  DARK HORSEMEN + Weapons That go 
Boom = VENTURE BROS. + Avoid City.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  SEE YA defied all odds and slew PRIEST OF KARN in the Dark 
Arena.  The only ones displeased were the buzzards, as PRIEST OF KARN's meat is 
notoriously tough.  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no. 
Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the TRICORUS 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
