                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ah, standbys.  Where would we be without them?

                                     Short Rock

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in JADE MOUNTAIN this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, DONAL PINES fought SIRIUS 
BLACK and gained 12 points and contributed to SAND DANCERS' 2-2-0.  SIRIUS BLACK has 
lost to DONAL PINES, falling 10 points, while helping make HOGWARTS EXPRESS a 3-2-0 
turn.  And not without some honor, PRONGS now claims the title and throne of 
Duelmaster of JADE MOUNTAIN.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last 
night, cramped under the table at The Green Axe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Is it really true that JADE MOUNTAIN has more dishwashers per capita 
that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, JADE MOUNTAIN, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet 
again, keep your swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in JADE 
MOUNTAIN again, farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

To all those lookin' for some easy pickins:  I, Elfwine, manager of The Shallowship,
the most feared team in all of Jhelum, invite all who seek wide open spaces for pubs
and other such establishments of limited debauchery, to visit this deserted city and
help me clear up some of the dust.  I'm just about ready to have my guys face off
against each other to get some new action.  Guess I'd better join a tournament or
something...hmmmm, there's a thought.

All -- I've seen what's on the forum.  So I'm prey, am I, Max.  You and all your
devious buddies will become my prey, even those I thought okay.  I don't have to
explain anything I do, much like yourselves so bring it on.  Feel free to come over
to 31 for a thrashing.  Oh, by the way, I am also in a new alliance.  They tend to
share my sentiments about the VC.  If they follow me or not, we will see; I'm not at
liberty to talk for them.  The VC may be on their last stand!!!! -- Blackstorm
