                                      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!  We now 
have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  SAND DANCERS now holds the 
crown and they are betting they can keep it.  Hey everybody, watch out for DELNA 
BERIN, who flew up 15 points in the rankings after mashing CJ like a melon.  Keep 
your eye on this gal.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  
CJ lost to DELNA BERIN and drops 11 points.  In front of all the crowds, 
UNFORGETTABLE took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum two weeks.  
Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  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 LIN TIRIAN 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
