                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon JADE MOUNTAIN, 
for I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Say what you will about blind luck and dirty 
fighting, but SWORD FOR HIRE will tell you 129-93-5 is nothing to laugh at...  SWORD 
FOR HIRE had cause to celebrate, after QUIET LONER got 21 points by beating BARRELS.  
Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, QUIET LONER was winsome, after beating 
BARRELS and seeing him lose 15 points.  MIGHTY ASSAULT found out being JADE 
MOUNTAIN's Duelmaster isn't all nuts and berries, receiving 2 challenges!  The arena 
was more crowded than usual this time, as BLUNT TRAUMA faced JADE MOUNTAIN's 
Duelmaster.  BLUNT TRAUMA found out that JADE MOUNTAIN isn't a democracy.  You've 
gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in JADE MOUNTAIN is 
using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     And how sociable are JADE MOUNTAIN's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like the 
noble eagle soaring amongst the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of CRITICALS, 
alone and unchallenged.  Like a pup with its tail between its legs, SWORD FOR HIRE 
scurried away from CRITICALS.  Oh, the shame!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Those who owe NO of WRATHMEN money and had written him off, take note:  he'S BACK 
FROM THE DARK ARENA!!!  AND he'S MAD!!!  Never one to advocate diplomacy and 
restraint, I was pleased to see APOKOLIPS retaliate against CRITICALS in bloodfeud!  
Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

I shall miss Jade Mountain and Lady Jorja most of all. -- Hound Archon *winks*

Something about being late to a party... I don't know, our manager speaks strangely at 
times.  I think he's from someplace that's hard to get to.  Anyway, that's why we 
missed last turn, and why I couldn't defend my title.  Such a shame and disgrace. 
Curses to you, Angus McSweords, curses! -- Blunt Trauma 

Mighty Assault -- Yeah, yeah, I've heard it before. -- Han Kang

Barrels -- Not of laughs. -- Meadowlark

Lady Smoke -- It'll make you look old before your time, you know.  And it ruins your 
wind. -- Chi Ho

Sayk -- If I weren't modest, I'd kiss you on both cheeks for that win. -- Rumbler

Karassy, my boy, I could've done without that. -- Ghost of Stone Cutter
