                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt JADE MOUNTAIN will ever be the same.  And let's see, THE HAPPY F fought 
MEADOWLARK and gained 12 points and contributed to BAD HANDWRITING!'s 1-0-0.  DAKEN 
has lost to CHI HO, falling 8 points, while helping make APOKOLIPS a 2-3-0 turn.  Due 
to his absence and inability to defend the throne, MURDEROUS THRUST has lost the 
title of Duelmaster.  And not without some honor, THE HAPPY F now claims the title 
and throne of Duelmaster of JADE MOUNTAIN.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard 
from unimpeachable sources that The Green Axe uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about 
gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  The most challenged warrior this 
turn was SAND DANCERS' warrior HAN KANG.  More fighters challenged him than 
challenged the Duelmaster!  In a brave attempt, ENCANTADORA from APOKOLIPS challenged 
up 19 points to fight HAN KANG from the SAND DANCERS stable.  ENCANTADORA perhaps got 
hers just desserts, seeing as she was defeated by HAN KANG and ended up with 30 
recognition points.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that JADE MOUNTAIN has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, JADE MOUNTAIN, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in JADE MOUNTAIN, but never good 
to wear out my welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in JADE 
MOUNTAIN again, farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
