                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for TREENVA TARAL, who flew up 12 points in the rankings after mashing 
CAPTAIN MONDINOR like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  And falling like a basher 
in the top ten was SERNILLAN, who dropped 2 points after a disappointing (to say the 
least) bout with SAMURAI.  Try as hard as the DARK TOADS stable might, they were 
unable to find their warrior (and ex-Duelmaster) DOWD before this week's fights.  In 
front of all the crowds, TREENVA TARAL took the Duelmaster's crown for hers own.  I 
give the bum two weeks.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day 
keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the JADE MOUNTAIN arena.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may 
encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in JADE MOUNTAIN have 
no sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Okay, so I may not be the 
world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been 
real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

All -- I am sad to announce that the Dark Toads will be leaving Jade Mountain.  I
only have three warriors left in this arena, none of note.  I have misplaced two
other potential warriors.  When I achieved my goal of graduating all ten styles from
the great sands here (and most of the other managers left) I lost focus on the play
here.  I will be moving to two other arenas soon with a bit more activity.  I am
hoping it will respark my ability to manage in the arena.  I apologize to the Sand
Dancers and the few other loyal Lirith Kai managers still around.  These sands
produced legends for me such as Shylock and Winston, who will continue to carry Jade
Mountain's banner proudly in their fights in ADM and Primus.  Thank you to all for
making this arena my home over the last five years.  I salute all with whom I have
crossed swords. -- TigToad, Manager Dark Toads

Dowd -- Gods, you really sucked up the skills!  Amazing.  Is it a toad thing, or can
anyone learn to do it? -- Treenva Taral

Footsteps -- Got a good rhythm there.  Can you tap dance, too? -- Short Rock

Vern -- But it's okay.  Most people never even NEED to kill a houseplant. -- Donal
Pines

Corinthian...that's a kind of pillar, isn't it?  Are you a pillar of the community?
I always wanted to meet one of those. -- Sernillan

freely! -- Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire
