                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
ROCANIS.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  
Advancing in the rankings was BAD APPLES who went from last turn's 458-603-14, to 
this week's record of 462-604-14.  Hey everybody, watch out for MEABEER, who flew up 
25 points in the rankings after mashing ZANDER like a melon.  Keep your eye on this 
guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was ZANDER, who dropped 27 points 
after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with MEABEER.  What does the Duelmaster 
and Piltdown Man have in common?  They are both the most challenged apes in human 
history!  Heyheyhey!  ALDALDON got through to the Duelmaster this turn.  No doubt he 
was more than anxious to kick VANESSA's tail out of the throne!  It's a proud day for 
the PHILANTHROPISTS stable, as their warrior, ALDALDON, ascended the Duelmaster's 
throne.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay. 
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad ELEVENTH  HOUR?  Big bad 
ELEVENTH HOUR.  Big bad ELEVENTH HOUR.  ROCANIS' afraid of the big bad ELEVENTH HOUR. 
Tra la la la la!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch GET's act in the arena.  
Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from ELEVENTH HOUR.   
     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 ROCANIS 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
