                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for STRIKER FARCE, who flew up 8 points in 
the rankings after mashing HOT AS HELL SAUCE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this 
guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  MERCURY was beat 
by BASHER FORCE and drops 6 points.  The most challenged warrior this week was ZETA 
AQUILAE.  If this keeps up, our Duelmaster's going to need more avoids!  Drawing on 
all of his experience as a 16-3-0 warrior, JUPITER went for the Duelmastership 
against ZETA AQUILAE this week.  In front of all the crowds, JUPITER 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?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid STRIKER FORCE, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does VALAMANTIS really have that 
many liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch CM - SCORPIO's act in the arena.  
Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from STRIKER FORCE.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they 
will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in VALAMANTIS have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown 
Spymaster
