                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in LIN 
TIRIAN.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Say 
good-bye to VICTORIOUS III, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the 
GIRLS X3 stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for DANNI ROGERS, who flew up 22 points in 
the rankings after mashing HALGAR SNAGTOOTH like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal. 
Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  IAPETUS was bested by 
LADONNA LYNCH and drops 7 points.  Well, everybody's pal GABRIELLE REECE moved hers 
record to 16-3-2 by defeating RED COULTER in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 
11 recognition points.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day 
keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  The audience likes blood and there was plenty of it 
covering MEDUSA as she was driven to an early grave by SHILLIS VAIR of the SAND 
DANCERS.  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 LIN TIRIAN have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Yes, well, here we are again.  Halgar fights Gabrielle and loses.  Red fights the
Venomous Concubine and wins--he always did like orcish women.  Harny fights Dixie and
loses.  Shillis fights Callipygous and loses.  And Tover loses to Danni Rogers.  Was
this a stellar turn for the Sand Dancers, or what?  A worthless lot.  I'm going to
have every one of them out there in the heat running laps, and if I'm lucky, some of
'em will fall over dead.  Bunch of bums. -- Jorja
