                                      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.  LENTIRIA caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested MORGANNA and was awarded 24 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, LENTIRIA put down 
MORGANNA, causing her to lose 13 points of recognition in the process.  Due to hers 
absence and inability to defend the throne, MARIANNE KIND has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  The city has turned out in honor of LENTIRIA, for with hers arena 
victory she may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  Would you believe 
that over half of the old women in JADE MOUNTAIN seem to feel that they could fight 
better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In JADE MOUNTAIN "art" is a word that 
has long since passed from the language!  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided 
when this week's challenge seeking began.  THE JUG O'NAUGHTS is feared.  This much I 
can say.  Apparently the stalwarts of DARK TOADS are catching the bulk of jests down 
at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Loose talk at the 
arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are 
after LENTIRIA.  Watch your back!   
     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!   
     The girls are as pretty in JADE MOUNTAIN as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till 
next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are 
angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Lorana -- Vinteeloa is a good name and it will be remembered with honor and no
anagrams. -- TigToad

Tiba Tyl Dain -- You should be grateful with the plethora of Toads here.  If we
weren't here, there would be no people to see when you turned around. -- Harold and
TigToad

Okay, I'm a fan of the free wins and all, but these buys three-straight rounds do not
teach well.  Where are the Sand Dancers down here? -- Arden

Stop complaining, I've fought buys four straight rounds and I'm learning great! --
Cyrus

Shut up guys, I've fought zero buys and I'm taking losses here! -- Aria

Morganna -- This arena's too small right now for me to avoid you.  Of course, if you
want to play tag over the hills around town, that is a whole different matter. --
Lentiria

Harold -- I think it must be some magical effect of the jewel in your head.  It's
like having backup batteries, right? -- Woody the exhausted
P.S.  Why am I "fighting" with a weapon I can hardly lift?

Red Mosquito -- (alarmed)  You aren't carrying West Nile Virus, are you? -- Essina
tyl Vern the hypochondriac

Marianne not-Kind -- Drat. -- Ghost of Tiba tyl Dain

Stop Sign -- (aggrieved look)  I kept stopping, as instructed, and then you'd hit me!
-- Volto Leeni
P.S.  It's bad enough I'm on a cursed string here, but you keep HITTING me.  I hate
that.

TigToad -- Me not needing a win = end of the world as we know it. -- Lentiria

Let it be known far and wide, that the Warrior TUM 18-7380, the Champions Runner-Up
for the recent Tournament, is managed by none other than Shocking Toad.  I named this
fabulous warrior after my friend and mentor, TUM, a.k.a. Don!  Sorry TUM didn't get
me my first TC; however, a runner-up with all those sandbaggers is pretty impressive,
if I do say so myself. -- Shocking Toad, The Manager

13 November 2003
All -- This is to announce that I am no longer a member of the Vendetta Cartel
Alliance.  I have enjoyed my time there, and I've made some great friends.  Their
company will be missed, but they will endure.  I wish them well. -- Apex
