                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly JADE MOUNTAIN games.  My praise to SAND DANCERS for 
their 4-1-1 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving 
of notice!  STONE CUTTER caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested ZELBAN SWORDBITER and was awarded 19 points in recognition.  In one 
of the week's more notable duels, BLUNT TRAUMA put down HAN KANG, causing him to lose 
10 points of recognition in the process.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the 
usurper.  All hail PREACHER ROWE, Duelmaster of JADE MOUNTAIN!  Informants "close" to 
the city champion have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his 
armor.  Watch out!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  Mighty fighters cannot but expect 
competition from those below.  K.O. take warning!  You have more than a few enemies 
in JADE MOUNTAIN.  HOUND ARCHON must really be harboring a grudge against the 
CRITICALS guild!  Merciless, 31 challenged down BARRELS points this week to duel with 
he.  Few would not have guessed the outcome of the bout as BARRELS was subdued by 
HOUND ARCHON.  Is this what passes for courage in JADE MOUNTAIN?  A match that raised 
a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that ENCANTADORA posted a challenge 
against the more highly recognized K.O..  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand 
ENCANTADORA was bested by K.O..  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.  
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till we meet 
again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a 
lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Rumbler -- Re: Deftness issues...  Yeah, I know!  Unfortunately, my mgr. doesn't pay 
much attention to weapon "requirements".  BUT... enjoys the fact that others do!  I 
tried to object, but he just shook his head and said... 'You're intelligent enough to 
know that you stick 'em with the pointy end!' /: -- Kharsyn
P.S. We are attempting to start running here in Lirith Kai because we have missed 
sharing arenas with your manager.  Not making any promises on duration of stay... or 
personals participation... but we'll see what we can do.

Han Kang -- Good job, nice fight.  Time to give up that weapon and find another one 
I'm not effective with. -- Preacher Rowe

Hound Archon -- He is not a man, he is not a dog, he is the DogMan of Jade Mountain.  
Your race is what?  That's a first. -- B. Trauma

Chi Ho -- That was a well met and honorable fight.  Lucky to find a few chinks in the 
armoire.  Seriously, I have chinks in my armoire. -- K.O.

Lady Smoke -- I was once a Shagornan Elf, but now I am a Palani.  It's hard not seeing 
pointy ears under this full helm. -- Q. Loner

Encantadora -- I'm not liking that matchup.  Just glad I made a decent showing. -- 
Jina tyl Ray

I'm glad to see everyone made it back from vacation. -- Angus McSweords 

Preacher Rowe -- Practice what you preach. -- Han Kang
P.S.  And teach me stuff.

K.O. -- Wow, your name is SERIOUS.  "Wakes up confused, days later."  Not how I like 
to end up.  Think how much private time I lost. -- Chi Ho

Barrels -- I tried to get the stewards to do a round of "roll the Barrels OUT," but 
they wouldn't.  Said I had to defeat you first.  Darn. -- Meadowlark

Karasendrieth -- Women are always after being "different" one way or another.  With 
you, I guess it's your name.  But what do people call you when they're in a hurry? -- 
Rumbler

Ah, standbys, I love 'em. -- Stone Cutter

Angus -- Li Dan retired, or at least went off somewhere.  For a while he came back 
occasionally, but not in recent years.  He had energy and time on his hands, I have 
neither.  Personals, most likely; spotlights, not likely at all. -- Jorja
