                                      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.  FEAR 
FACTORY 15 now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  A stormcloud 
is brewing over the FEAR FACTORY 19 guildhouse.  Rumor says any more weeks like this 
ones 0-1-0 may send the team to the Dark Arena.  Coming up with a solid 2-3-0 outing, 
M IS FOR MONKEY has advanced 5 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for 
ANNOUNCER BUNNY, who flew up 32 points in the rankings after mashing WILBUR like a 
melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on 
the sands.  OH HELL was beat by EVERY LITTLE THING and drops 20 points.  Well, 
everybody's pal NECROWRETCH moved his record to 12-3-0 by defeating HERCULES in the 
Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 15 recognition points.  An apple a day keeps the 
doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the ERINIKA arena.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  There's got to be more reason for the sending of PRO 
SIMIAN to the Dark Arena than his record (2-1-0).  Anybody got any ideas M IS FOR 
MONKEY?  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your ally in the arena with 
you and see what happens.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in ERINIKA 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.  And 
remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've 
heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

  Armsilbar liked being Master of the Stronghold Academy, all except for one part.

He had to talk to Sheila Greywand at least once a week, usually oftener.  She was 
getting more erratic.  More chaotic.  That would be the effect of the Grey Wand.  It 
was a powerful chaotic artifact, and she kept it with her always.  She had turned his 
predecessor into a frog--or 164 frogs--and then summoned all the members of the 
Academy to a frog-leg dinner.  That had been, ah, bad.  Yes, very bad.
     But here he was entering her chambers.  With, well, it couldn't be called GOOD 
news.  And the look she turned on him--she was in an orcish mood today, all scowling 
black brows and bared fangs--that made him nervous.  But some things had to be done.  
He cleared his throat, which seemed to have a frog in it, and said, "It's about the 
next tourney prize, Lady.  I know it's more than two months away, but this isn't too 
soon to start thinking of some new, exciting prize--"
     "I have no intention of thinking about 'new, exciting prizes'," she snapped.  Or 
was that a snarl?  "These managers are getting above themselves.  They act like I 
created the arena system for their amusement!  There will be one standard prize for 
all the tourneys.  Just one."
     He had a horrible vision of all the managers walking out in a mass.  Perhaps it 
wouldn't be that bad, but it wouldn't be good.  And if he said the wrong thing, well, 
the next frog-leg dinner might be him. "Er, ah, perhaps a specific prize for each 
tourney--a spring prize, a summer prize, and so on?  The managers expect--"
     She exploded.  A literal explosion, the force of the blast blew his hair off.  
She said several things in an obsolete dialect of orcish.  He stepped backward, then 
again.  The blast had blown the door open behind him.  If he could make it out before 
something else happened--
     "Ribbit!  Ribbit!"
