                                      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 SAND DANCERS, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the 
GIRLS X3 stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for HARNY BLACK, who flew up 15 points in 
the rankings after mashing DIXIE BUBBLES like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  
Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  TOVER DUCK was beat by 
AMBITIOUS GUARD and drops 18 points.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught 
but bloody knuckles was SAND DANCERS' HALGAR SNAGTOOTH, who was turned away from the 
Duelmastership by DANNI ROGERS.  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!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  There's got to be more reason for the 
sending of JOHN THOMAS to the Dark Arena than his record (2-1-0).  Anybody got any 
ideas IRON MEN?  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 LIN TIRIAN have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you 
worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster

Danni Rogers -- Since I'm leaving, I don't mind you having the title back.  I sure
don't want to leave it to that idiot, Halgar. -- Red Coulter

Actually, I wouldn't mind at all if Halgar got the title and used it as a springboard
for graduation.  He represents the only style of the ten that I haven't graduated
from here.  True, the rush of completing the set isn't as great as it was the first
time it happened, but it's still there. -- Jorja

Dixie Bubbles -- You heard Jorja, she wants me to win.  How about we make a deal, I
win, you learn lots of skills? -- Halgar Snagtooth

Ladonna Lynch -- Did anyone ask if you're related to the salad dressing people?
Dorothy Lynch, she's the one with the recipe, yes?  You could dress a salad for me.
-- Harny Black

Medusa -- That's nothing to someone who has more than once cut bubblegum out of a
kid's hair. -- Shillis Vair
