                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Practice pays for JAGIELIO DAMASK, who pummelled SERNILLAN, to pocket 
20 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, JADE MASTER was winsome, after 
beating THIA ARIGO and seeing her lose 9 points.  Duelmaster HOLLY HEPATITIS from ONE 
NIGHT STAND is going for the gold, as she Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's 
TREEMASTER.  Ooh, the excitement!  HOLLY HEPATITIS successfully staved off a grab for 
the roses by TREEMASTER of DARK ARENA.  Does JADE MOUNTAIN have no one talented 
enough to dethrone her?  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.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the lion, so 
did the "warriors" in JADE MOUNTAIN avoid SAND DANCERS.  The warriors of SAND DANCERS 
found their efforts at combat frustrated as MANAGER MUSINGS apparently had more 
important things to do than fight.  Is it charming personality?  Conversational 
abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, SERNILLAN is the most challenged 
warrior.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Those who owe HOLLY 
HEPATITIS of ONE NIGHT STAND money and had written her off, take note:  she'S BACK 
FROM THE DARK ARENA!!!  AND she'S MAD!!!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it 
slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As the seasons change, and the creatures of the 
wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid JADE MOUNTAIN farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Whoa, Nelly!  Things are getting pretty sparse when the number two team on the move
(US) scored zero points for not running.  Way to go One Night Stand--ya bums!  How
embarrassing to Hue & Cry and Sand Dancers? -- FTF Manager, Manager Musings

Holly Hepatitis is Duelmaster?  And to think that Jade Mountain has always been such
a clean place!  What creepy manager runs this diseased collection of sleazes? -- FTF
Manager

Zagwe -- If you wanted Mannequin, you should not have been messing around with those
"beings" that you did.  How crude!  Was it worth it? -- FTF Manager

Holly Hepatitus -- You touched me!  EEWW!  I'm starting to feel sick.  Yuck!  You
should be quarantined! -- Zagwe Banshee

Korto Lu -- That fight lasted one minute longer than I wanted.  Just my luck. --
Hozha Odemis

Sernillan -- Whoa!  I wasn't expecting such an easy win from you.  You have way more
fight experience than me.  I'm gonna hit a wall pretty soon.  I just know it. -- Thia
Arigo

Thia Arigo -- Damn.  I hue not, neither do I cry, therefore I lose fights.  Damn. --
Sernillan

Candy Clap -- I like TWO night stands, one on either side of the bed.  So I can have
a selection of bedside books, you know? -- Jade Belle

Hozha Odemis -- Ah, the cold got to you, hmm?  It can be bitter here.  But I'd be
glad to help warm you up. -- Korto Lu

Cindy Chlamidia -- Huh, I always knew you flatlanders were too good to be true. --
Jaginru

Jagielio Damask -- No, you just can't get enough of me.  Many women are that way, but
it's odd that you should be. -- Kortu Lu
