                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I certainly couldn't let B.F. Skinner take the title.  Imagine what he would
have done with it!  Experiments in behavior modification.  Appalling.

                                    Kolbert Moon

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
VALAMANTIS.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  
Hey everybody, watch out for IMROM LLEWS, who flew up 18 points in the rankings after 
mashing KHALHUMS DWARF like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days 
it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  NEEVAN POVAR was bested by DANGEROUS 
CRIMINAL and drops 10 points.  Well, everybody's pal KOLBERT MOON moved his record to 
17-10-0 by defeating B.F. SKINNER in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 6 
recognition points.  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 VALAMANTIS arena.   
     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, there's the manager of the VALAMANTIS giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  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
