                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of THE GREENHOUSE!  Once again I've been called out of 
retirement for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with ZHENG TIAN 
SHOU?  He actually beat EPYC DEATH's ANISHKA, and walked away with 16 more points 
from the fight.  Major screwup at FLOWER GIRLS.  CAUSTIC CROCUS lost 7 points to 451 
DEGREES.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe CAUSTIC CROCUS will provide more easy 
wins...  Har har har!  Did ONYX wimp out, or just get lazy?  Anyway, it's not 
Duelmaster anymore.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for BLOOD AND GUTS!'s 
outstanding member, Duelmaster ZOUM LA BOUSE.  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give 
up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, FLOWER GIRLS! 
The bums at WAH CHING couldn't face the challenges from FLOWER GIRLS!  No excuse for 
that!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, JASMIN!  
Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  JAZMINA of EPYC DEATH knows 
how to pick 'em.  He challenged LIGHTER FLUID of PYROMANIA who is up by 21.  Now was 
this a wise move?  JAZMINA perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he was defeated 
by LIGHTER FLUID and ended up with 31 recognition points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  We all knew it had to happen sooner or later.  A warrior can't 
stick around with a 6-9-0, and ZHENG TIAN SHOU easily took care of ANISHKA.  ARRAHE 
larned hers lesson (JASMIN taught it well), and we right likely won't be seein' 'im 
fight any JADE WARRIORS members with the same gusto.  Someone told LI KUI that FLOWER 
GIRLS never Bloodfeuded, that he'd have an easy kill.  Well, I'm sure whoever misled 
you is right sorry.  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young 
rapscallions, take note!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
Are you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm 
writing it before you read it.  Oh, well.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- 
Olaf Modeen

Ah, shucks, Li Kui.  Now Potent Pansy will not be able to offer her wares at The Face
this summer.  She was all prepped and ready before she challenged you and died.  So
sad.  The guys will not know what they missed!  Hasta La Vista, Potent Pansy.  May
the 11-9-13-20-10-10-11 ST fight well in That Great Arena In The Sky. -- Lady Fern,
Flower Girls

Kung-Fu Master -- You showed me your moves, then I showed you mine, and you were
finished quickly.  (giggle) -- Caustic Crocus, Flower girls

Congratulations to Duelmaster Onyx of Dragon's Guard II.  That Khisanth had better
make sure you write a DM Column or my gals will cut him off! -- Lady Fern, Flower
Girls

Hmmmm.  I wonder if Lady Fern meant that literally or figuratively?  Cut him off?!
(giggle) -- Gloating Gardenia, Flower Girls

Good luck to all in Milwaukee.  My gals will see you there! -- Lady Fern, Flower
Girls

Incredible again!  But badly...  After stealing the throne, I get smashed by Onyx
coming from the depths...  Immanent justice?? -- Areopolite

You didn't choose the easy challenges, fiery ones!  Better luck next time. -- LP

Jade Warriors -- So, uh, what just happened?  Was Vengeful Justice ill?  Granted, I
was in a foul mood, but who wouldn't be after being lost in the Shewish Forest for a
month?  Just a sidenote, but if Glon's Pity ever suggests showing you where his
family lived, run away.  Apparently, someone died next to almost every rock and tree!
Jazmina was bored to tears and Bandor's Shame thought it was a good idea to start
chopping down trees.  Anyway, death is our lot and if I am fated to die at your hands
I could ask for no greater glory.  Hail Vengeful Justice! -- Arrahe
