                                      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.  Warriors--remember that glory 
waits always around the corner!  Witness how this week PARANOID ASYLUM went 3-0-0 to 
move up 3 in the rankings.  SPIKE caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested SAI-KI THE PEGLEG and was awarded 11 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, ANNE put down TABATAN, causing 
him to lose 4 points of recognition in the process.  Although ARIA made a valiant 
effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious WITCH.  Would you 
believe that over half of the old women in JADE MOUNTAIN seem to feel that they could 
fight better than you gladiators?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  DARK TOADS is feared.  This much I 
can say.  Apparently the stalwarts of PARANOID ASYLUM are catching the bulk of jests 
down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty fighters 
cannot but expect competition from those below.  WOODY take warning!  You have more 
than a few enemies in JADE MOUNTAIN.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing 
is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     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

Aria -- I figure if I can teach you that much, you can pay my Infirmary bill. --
Woody

Samsara -- You know, we need some new opponents here.  Say, ten teams' worth running
all the time.  Yeah, that's what we need.  How about if you do some recruiting?  Tell
people what a great place this is. -- Tabatan
P.S.  Nobody listens when I say that.

Samarium -- Wow!  Is that a "grand slam education," or what?  You got six skills and
three ratings--that part of the report was longer than the fight!--and all *I* got
was one measly little recognition point.  Cheese. -- Treenva Taral

John Michael -- Darn toad. -- Volto Leeni

Spike -- I hate short Dwarves. -- Arnal Redaxe

On Jhans turn number 476 (due on Feb. 16, 2005) the Second Annual kLk St. Valentine's
Massacre Kill Contest will begin.  The rules are simple; the team with the most kills
on the last turn wins.  Last year's winner was Shocking Toad.  Can he repeat?  Could
DOOMcorps crush all challengers?  Will the kLk prevail?  Or will you be the
independent manager to show that alliances aren't all that?  Come on to Jhans and
let's find out!
     Prizes are:  1st.  Renaming of a Dark Arena monster and five roll-up
                        certificates or $25.00 deposited in your account.
                  2nd.  Renaming of a Stand-In monster.
     Come on and celebrate the Delarquan way!
