Well, it looks like you are stuck with me for another turn or two.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Say good-bye 
to SHEWISH BUFFET, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the STAR WARS 
stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for REWARD, who flew up 13 points in the rankings 
after mashing DARTH VADAR like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like 
a basher in the top ten was ZENSU LASAGNA, who dropped 7 points after a disappointing 
(to say the least) bout with PADME' AMIDALA.  Going for the gusto and coming up with 
aught but bloody knuckles was MIDDLE WAY 16's VINDA YARRO, who was turned away from 
the Duelmastership by HORSE D'OEUVRE.  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 JURINE arena.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  MIDDLE WAY 16 has one more week 
to get their bloodfeud off.  I talked to the manager, but he could only grunt 'BARTON 
DAWES who?'.  Ya gotta luv em!  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 JURINE have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  And remember, you can pick your friends 
and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown 
Spymaster

Our congratulations to Andres. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

occasions for rightful savagery. -- Vinda Yarro

Bootsy Collins -- You can graduate, too, any time now.  But you need to get some
political points. -- Deemer Eppt

Listen, I had history with that 'Fratsfa Slave'.  It was personal between us. --
