                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Hey everybody, watch out for DALAN HILLEI, who 
flew up 18 points in the rankings after mashing CHUN MING like a melon.  Keep your 
eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was KORILL SAI, who 
dropped 8 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with JHELUM RAIDER.  
It's a proud day for the TRADERS OF TROCAR stable, as their warrior, DESERT PEARL, 
ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get 
a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad ASIAN INVASION?  Big bad ASIAN INVASION.  Big bad ASIAN INVASION.  TROCAR's 
afraid of the big bad ASIAN INVASION.  Tra la la la la!  Okay, so I may not be funny, 
but catch STEEL WOLVES 5's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft 
at running from ASIAN INVASION.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  For those of you who missed it, Death showed up, grabbed 
MENG SI by the ear and took him away to a place where he won't need a coat.  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.  Okay, so I may not be the world's best comedian, 
but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  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
