                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in JADE MOUNTAIN!  I still haven't told Mom I'm 
writing Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for SHORT 
ROCK?  SAND DANCERS' proud of him after beating GARTH and getting 19 points.  Talk 
about yer major upsets!  DONAL PINES' match with VERN cost him a loss of 12 points!  
The Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause he's Number One!  CHAO-SO TALLTREE 
knows this.  He was Dark Arena Challenged by the Duelmaster.  The crowds were amazed 
this turn, as CHAO-SO TALLTREE killed the Duelmaster, SAMURAI, leaving I AM SAM in 
mourning.  VERN gets to be new Duelmaster.  But doesn't this mean people might try to 
kill him, too?  I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  
They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  The warriors of SAND DANCERS must be getting lonely.  
They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  Is there 
some deep dark secret why MANAGER MUSINGS' been avoiding SAND DANCERS so much?  Or is 
it just that they're too scared?  Like, is DONAL PINES popular, or what?  He was 
challenged the most in all of JADE MOUNTAIN!  He's got a 17-22-1, is that good?  
DARQUE must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  She challenged 
GREATSWORD.  15 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I thought 
DARQUE showed great skill and promise when she overcame GREATSWORD.  All right, so I 
slept through it!  Big deal!   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed 
up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  JADE MOUNTAIN is like such a dump, and you guys smell too 
much!  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte
