                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of JADE MOUNTAIN.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir 
to give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Practice pays 
for SUN WEI LO, who pummelled SERNILLAN, to pocket 15 points.  A certain someone 
should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 11 points to 
MATSUMOTO.  (Discrete enough, JADE BELLE?) TO-FU BACKSTABBER found out that JADE 
MOUNTAIN isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  Word 
has it one team in JADE MOUNTAIN is taking speech lessons to try to bore their 
opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     So much to report, so little time!  Perhaps the warriors of HUE AND CRY should 
take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  Like a pup with its tail 
between its legs, MANAGER MUSINGS scurried away from HUE AND CRY.  Oh, the shame!  If 
challenges were horses, ZAGWE BANSHEE could open up a fast food joint!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  JAGIELIO DAMASK of 
HUE AND CRY sends ULRA T'SSAR of SAND DANCERS goes to the Weary Warrior's Retirement 
Home.  JADE MOUNTAIN has no place for weaklings!  Questions are being raised about 
the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in JADE MOUNTAIN 
would I avoid!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  More important duties call me.  Do not despair!  
I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Manager Musings -- Your team seems to rule this arena, with no small degree of
impertinence, likely due to the long periods of inactivity of other teams.  We shall
see how you fare against an experienced veteran. -- Chi'en

Ooo...our manager is throwing down the gauntlet!  I hope everyone is ready for this.
I know I am, bring it! -- Sun Wei Lo

Chamuscar -- You had your chance and did well.  But, hheh, here I am, the winner!
Great! -- Ping Hui

Hozha Odemis -- You have very interesting names.  You fight well too, but the victory
was mine.  Salute! -- Matsumoto

Bahning the Lawyer -- What was that you were fighting with, a quill pen?  Tell the
Commission to send somebody who is an actual gladiator next time. -- Sun Wei Lo

Wan-Fa the Dancer -- Some nice dancing moves you had, but if they were supposed to do
something to me, I missed it. -- Xiaoling Li

Ultra T'ssar -- Wow!  A few more fights with you and I'll have a Master in
everything.  See ya soon. -- Zagwe Banshee

Jade Belle -- Gotcha!  And I enjoyed it too. -- Jageelo Damask

Matsumoto -- You're a tough nut to crack. -- Hozha Odemis

Ping Hui -- Wow!  Very impressive.  We'll eat you later. -- Chamuscar

Darque -- I bet you just did that again so you could comment on "how the cookie
crumbles."  Well, let me tell you:  it's so humid right now, the cookie couldn't
possibly crumble, it would go moldy first. -- Sernillan
P.S.  Four skills is good.  Thank you.

Zagwe Banshee -- One of my better students. -- Ulra t'Ssar

Jagielio Damask -- I think it was the tattoos that threw me off. -- Jade Belle
P.S.  Were they, are they, magical tattoos?

Mannequin -- Damn, with that name, I thought you'd be a dummy.  You aren't. --

Darque -- Unlikely.  The generals all have enough pull to get out of it. -- Captain

9 July 2007
I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.
If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta
P.S.  If you email me, put "Re DM" on the subject line.
