                             Notes from the arena champ.

Jade Mountain!

Your Lord Protector is here!

My name is Hound Archon, FEAR ME, andy who come to bring pain and despair to our 
community of Jade Mountain!!

                                          Hound Archon - DMI
                                          Team Apokolips

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
JADE MOUNTAIN brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, SAND DANCERS, 
since SWORD FOR HIRE took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see BLUNT TRAUMA win a fight and gain 16 
points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, QUIET LONER beat STONE CUTTER and STONE CUTTER lost 12 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, JADE 
MOUNTAIN may be getting bland, as HOUND ARCHON stays top dog in the city.  I'm not in 
a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, 
don't you, JADE MOUNTAIN?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  JADE 
MOUNTAIN, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  APOKOLIPS the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like SWORD FOR HIRE 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, ENCANTADORA was this turn's most challenged 
warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  CRITICALS has cause to pause today, as HORRIFYING 
ATTACK was sent to the Dark Arena, and came back--though not in the best of moods, 
I'll wager.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing 
these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the JADE MOUNTAIN arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad 
to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens
