                                      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!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for JIMMY THE HAND, who flew up 19 points in the rankings after 
mashing SERGEANT 1 like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it 
doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  SERGEANT 1 lost to JIMMY THE HAND and drops 14 
points.  It's a proud day for the MIDDLE WAY 20 stable, as their warrior, DENNA FEYL, 
ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, 
so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid MEN OF STEEL, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does ROCANIS really have that many 
liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch TREXTRAS' act in the arena.  Those 
acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from MEN OF STEEL.  And who is this GASTON 
IPPS you ask, with 65 points and a 12-29-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may 
encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in ROCANIS have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Okay, so I may not be the 
world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been 
real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Ha, and again, HA!  One-four, okay, not something to be proud of.  But THIS time,
Ferria gets a loss--to a WORM, how's that for ickiness?  And *I* get the win I
deserve, over quite a nice little tourney-baby.  Life can be good, even in the arena.
