                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
TROCAR.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for CHUN MING, who flew up 21 points in the rankings after 
mashing DESERT PEARL like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  And falling like a 
basher in the top ten was DESERT PEARL, who dropped 6 points after a disappointing 
(to say the least) bout with CHUN MING.  Our battling duelmaster QUI GONG has managed 
to hold the title, fending off LEVANDAR's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next 
time, TRADERS OF TROCAR.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this 
stuff?   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Remember:  alliances are great, 
but try and take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     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.  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

Three-two, and this time, we defeated two standbys.  More what we're used to,
although not what we'd like to see.  Not that complaining to Jorja does any good at
all.  She just says we can live with it, or die with it, but not to expect changes.
More than a little disappointing, since she DID say, at the first of the year, that
there MIGHT be changes.  Oh, well. -- Desert Pearl
