                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It was a more decisive result this time in my fight with Vicious Slash.  I didn't 
allow his little dagger near my face to further mar my natural orcan good looks.  For 
all of those fans that bet against me, it serves you right to lose your money.  You 
should've known better. 
     Who will fight me this turn?  Chi Ho?  One of the group in the Champions' 
section? I don't know. I'm counting the days till my graduation and I care little for 
anything else. Amuse yourselves with your bets and your punditry. Now I must go; I 
have a sword to polish. 
     
                                          -- Jin tyl Ray
                                             Champion of Jade Mountain: 589, 593, 594  

                                      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.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see BARRELS win a fight and gain 14 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
STRAWBERRY JHANS beat CHI HO and CHI HO lost 7 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, JINA TYL RAY has lost the Title 
of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with 
the new, as STRAWBERRY JHANS takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old 
Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you 
think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for JADE 
MOUNTAIN's morgue.  More variety.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines 
through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     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!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of JADE MOUNTAIN.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see 
the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Chi Ho -- You're supposed to resign when I stab you with my dagger, not fight back. -- 
Quiet Loner

Stoneface Mikarn -- Unbelievable.  Inexcusable.  Unacceptable.  Neo Noir's first loss 
is to a stand-in, and ... and ... you killed him.  Fate bade me to avenge his death in 
the same round you murdered him, and that I did.  I just wish I had killed you in 
return. -- Black Ice  

Stoneface Mikarn -- I just love the phrase "luckily killed."  Neo Noir was "luckily 
killed" by you says the Spy report.  It's like the writer had a grudge against him. -- 
Angus McSweords  

Zelban Swordbiter -- At least you fought the way a stand-in should.  Slow, get popped, 
give up.  Nice show! -- Gothic

Quiet Loner -- If you'd made more noise, I might have stopped sooner.  I thought I was 
missing you. -- Chi Ho

Barrels -- I gotta tell you, that was a surprise. -- Rumbler

Somebody's been feeding Guardsman Tan fresh meat.  He won both his fights against us!  
Grossly unfair. -- Han Ki and Hotdog

Gothic -- Yep.  Small arena syndrome. -- Chi Ho
