                                      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!  We 
now have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  MIDDLE WAY 20 now holds 
the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  Coming up with a solid 4-1-0 
outing, MIDDLE WAY 20 has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  MEN OF STEEL is no joke 
as it posted a 3-1-0 week advancing from 3rd place to 2nd place.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for NALENTHU, who flew up 21 points in the rankings after mashing SNAKE 
BITE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top 
ten was SNAKE BITE, who dropped 19 points after a disappointing (to say the least) 
bout with NALENTHU.  Well, everybody's pal KULGAN moved his record to 14-25-2 by 
defeating LINKIN LOGGER in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 12 recognition 
points.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay. 
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the ROCANIS arena.  Here's a 
song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad MEN OF STEEL?  Big bad MEN OF STEEL.  Big 
bad MEN OF STEEL.  ROCANIS' afraid of the big bad MEN OF STEEL.  Tra la la la la!  
And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause INCONSISTENT FURY 
beats feet every time MEN OF STEEL smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  There's got to be more reason for the 
sending of RANUL to the Dark Arena than his record (2-1-0).  Anybody got any ideas 
PHILANTHROPISTS?  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?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The 
Unknown Spymaster
