                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  We now have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  THE 
ELITE now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for ORC RIND, who flew up 24 points in the rankings after mashing SIR 
FINBAR GALEDEEP like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it 
doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  SIR FINBAR GALEDEEP was subdued by ORC RIND 
and drops 16 points.  Try as hard as the DREAMTIME stable might, they were unable to 
find their warrior (and ex-Duelmaster) WILD FLOWER before this week's fights.  It's a 
proud day for the DREAMTIME stable, as their warrior, STAR, ascended the Duelmaster's 
throne.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the ARADI arena.  Here's a 
song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad I'M WITH STUPID?   Big bad I'M WITH 
STUPID.  Big bad I'M WITH STUPID.  ARADI's afraid of the big bad I'M WITH STUPID.  
Tra la la la la!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause 
THE ELITE beats feet every time I'M WITH STUPID 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?).  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.  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
