                                      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.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as SAND DANCERS is pushed out of top team by MANAGER MUSINGS, who came 
from 2nd with a 2-0-0 this turn.  And let's see, ZELORAND fought LIFER and gained 20 
points and contributed to SAND DANCERS' 2-2-0.  LIFER has lost to ZELORAND, falling 
10 points, while helping make PARANOID ASYLUM a 0-2-0 turn.  Defending his title for 
another turn, SAMOSET kept SAND DANCERS' warrior, DONAL PINES, from claiming the 
throne.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the 
table at The Green Axe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  SAND DANCERS has cause to stand tall, as 
they were JADE MOUNTAIN's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And avoiding SAND DANCERS more than any other team we find MANAGER MUSINGS.  
JADE MOUNTAIN, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports 
fans, take notice that DONAL PINES from SAND DANCERS was JADE MOUNTAIN's most 
challenged warrior this turn.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that JADE MOUNTAIN has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in JADE MOUNTAIN, but never good to wear out 
my welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in JADE MOUNTAIN 
again, farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Ah, I guess I am really not THAT good.  (sigh) -- Vern

Soultaker -- You couldn't defeat Ulra? -- FTF Manager

Greatsword -- Whew!  Made it! -- Darque

Samoset -- I was clearly no match for you.  You are a true warrior. -- Slugbait

Donal Pines -- Back at you, Lord protector! -- Vern
P.S.  That may have been my one and only.

Sam, Sam, Sam.  Go away! -- FTF Manager

Garth -- I didn't need that today, I really didn't. -- Sernillan
P.S.  Neither did you.

Soultaker -- Indeed, you should not only "reconsider this gladiator stuff," you
should find a good day job.  We need some street sweepers here in Jade Mountain. --
Ulra T'Ssar

Vern -- Ha! -- Short Rock
P.S.  Too bad that after Donal "drew out the very best in you," he didn't give it
back!

Oh, well, a win over a standby is still a win. -- Donal Pines

Garth -- "You weren't even in that fight"?  Then who was I matched against? -- Short
Rock

Darque -- No, you're too short. -- Chao-So Talltree
