                                      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 BEFORE SUNRISE, who flew up 15 points in the rankings after 
mashing CONVICTED ASSASSIN like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya know, some 
days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  SKALVORD was subdued by SGT. HATRED 
and drops 3 points.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles 
was DARK HORSEMEN's GALDOR O'HARE, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by 
HANK.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Here is other news that is of note.   
     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 TRICORUS giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been 
real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster
