                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, JADE MOUNTAIN?  Ain't you never seen Snide 
Clemens before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see DOWD win a fight and gain 8 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, PRONGS beat 
TREENVA TARAL and TREENVA TARAL lost 6 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, JADE MOUNTAIN may be getting bland, as SPIKE stays top 
dog in the city.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  
You want to know what's new, don't you, JADE MOUNTAIN?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the JADE MOUNTAIN arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I 
must leave now-- Snide Clemens

ATTENTION ALL YOU ALLIANCE-TYPE PEOPLE:
For the purposes of tourney newsletter alliance listings (when I am able to do them),
you may only be listed in ONE alliance.  In other words, you have to choose!  If you
are a part of Englebert's Alliance and Englebert's Alliance is "part" of Ruthrauf's
Alliance, I will list you EITHER as part of Englebert's Alliance OR as part of
Ruthrauf's Alliance, NOT both.  The default would be the top-level alliance,
Ruthrauf's, in this example.  If you'd rather be listed separately, let me know and I
will do so, but that will be the only listing you get. -- The Saint, keeper of ever-
more-complicated lists

The Company of Brothers (TCB) welcomes two new members to our alliance...Liam the
Goth and Buddy Lee.  We have no doubt that they will prove to be assets to our
alliance and the general dueling community. -- Baphomet, co-founder, T.C.B.
