                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Hey everybody, watch out for THORN, who flew up 
11 points in the rankings after mashing HAN KANG like a melon.  Keep your eye on this 
guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was HAN KANG, who dropped 7 points 
after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with THORN.  Going for the gusto and 
coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was RUNEBLADES' RAGE, who was turned away 
from the Duelmastership by IRON HANDED.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold 
to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.   
     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 JADE MOUNTAIN have 
no sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make 
some tracks.  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 Iron Handed. -- Jorja and the Sand Dancers, who have suffered
through his grip in the past

Excuse me?  The "new guy"?  I am not a guy.  And I am MORE than halfway decent.
Certain people can just BACK OFF until time demonstrates my quality. -- Jade Pearl

Three-two, and the new guy--an ORC--can just go on laboring in the lower ranks for a
while.  See if *I* care. -- Jade Lotus
