                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly JADE MOUNTAIN games.  Did only my eyes note the 3-0-0 
record which MANAGER MUSINGS managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a 
record will draw challengers!  ULRA T'SSAR caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as she skillfully bested WRATH and was awarded 18 points in recognition.  
In one of the week's more notable duels, ULRA T'SSAR put down WRATH, causing him to 
lose 15 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his absence and inability to 
defend the throne, SAMOSET has lost the title of Duelmaster.  The city has turned out 
in honor of VERN, for with his arena victory he may now lay claim to the highest 
position in the city!  Would you believe that over half of the old women in JADE 
MOUNTAIN seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  JADE MOUNTAIN, city of gladiators! 
Mighty among the names of thy guilds is SAND DANCERS, a guild shunned and avoided by 
many in the weekly duels.  Apparently the stalwarts of MANAGER MUSINGS are catching 
the bulk of jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  
Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that 
many fighters are after SERNILLAN.  Watch your back!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  SAMURAI has sworn to take up religion upon living to tell of his 
recent bout with the Dark Arena horrors.  A rare thing indeed!  Some say a warrior is 
judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a 
sword on the belt!   
     The girls are as pretty in JADE MOUNTAIN as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is 
mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

All -- I've been...out of circulation for the last couple of months, and my lists
are not up to date.  If you've announced a manager name, a new alliance, or changed
a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via
diplo, or in an e-mail (Sue (at) solberg-mathews (dot) com).  For that matter, if
you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The
Saint, keeper of lists
