                                      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!.  Coming up with a solid 2-1-0 outing, THE 
MOTHERSHIP AH has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for 
DEAD DOG, who flew up 21 points in the rankings after mashing TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE like 
a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out 
on the sands.  DIRTY DAWG was bested by RUTHLESS JAYWALKER and drops 4 points.  
Unlike most arenas, PRIME MINISTER managed to get his challenge off against the 
24-9-0 TICK ... TOCK.  In front of all the crowds, TICK ... TOCK took the 
Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  Can you believe they are 
paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the ARADI arena.  And hey, 
kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid UNNAMEABLES, please raise you hand.  Wow.  
Does ARADI really have that many liars?  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling 
your rasberries, cause INGRATE WHITE NORTH beats feet every time UNNAMEABLES smiles 
at them.  Try farming, eh?  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, TICK ... 
TOCK would be president.  Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  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 ARADI 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.  Hasta la 
bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster
