                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in JHANS. 
Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Say good-bye to 
STILLMATIC, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the SERPENTS HOLD 
stable.  Hey everybody, watch out for SANFORD'S OTHER SON, who flew up 19 points in 
the rankings after mashing CHESTER GRELL like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  
Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  ETHER was bested by FANG 
and drops 6 points.  Our battling duelmaster VIPER has managed to hold the title, 
fending off CONVICTED ASSASSIN's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, 
JHANS.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the JHANS arena.  Here's a 
song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad SERPENTS HOLD?  Big bad SERPENTS HOLD.  
Big bad SERPENTS HOLD.  JHANS' afraid of the big bad SERPENTS HOLD.  Tra la la la la! 
For those of you who like math, try this one:  SERPENTS HOLD + Weapons That go Boom = 
MIDNIGHT GREMLINS + Avoid City.  And who is this HILDRETH LAMONT you ask, with 38 
points and a 5-23-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  THE FLYEST of STILLMATIC 
had better have a good reason for challenging down 15 points in a challenge which he 
won.  I thought THE FLYEST showed great skill and promise when he subdued HILDRETH 
LAMONT.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Knowing when to use the right tactics at the proper time 
is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, there's the manager of the JHANS giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster
