                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
JURINE.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  AUTUMN 
SAGA is no joke as it posted a 4-1-0 week advancing from 3rd place to 3rd place.  Hey 
everybody, watch out for FALL PRINCESS, who flew up 17 points in the rankings after 
mashing CHAM DUGAN like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  And falling like a 
basher in the top ten was BONESNAP, who dropped 12 points after a disappointing (to 
say the least) bout with DANGEROUS CRIMINAL.  It's a proud day for the FEAR FACTORY 
stable, as their warrior, FLAME SPIDER, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  Advice to 
bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad FEAR  FACTORY?  Big bad FEAR 
FACTORY.  Big bad FEAR FACTORY.  JURINE's afraid of the big bad FEAR FACTORY.  Tra la 
la la la!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch AUTUMN SAGA's act in the arena.  
Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from FEAR FACTORY.  Well just about 
everybody wants a piece of FLAME SPIDER, who was this week's most challenged warrior. 
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  NITEHAWK SPARKWING defied all odds and slew 
WURM KIN in the Dark Arena.  The only ones displeased were the buzzards, as WURM 
KIN's meat is notoriously tough.  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 JURINE giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  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
