                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, JADE MOUNTAIN?  Ain't you never seen Snide 
Clemens before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see SLUGBAIT win a fight and gain 9 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, JADE 
MASTER beat JAGIELIO DAMASK and JAGIELIO DAMASK lost 17 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, HOLLY HEPATITIS has lost 
the Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the 
old, in with the new, as SLUGBAIT takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the 
old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Green Axe, humph!  I've tasted better ale at 
mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From JADE MOUNTAIN's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, SERNILLAN was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for JADE 
MOUNTAIN's morgue.  More variety.  Nipped in the bud, you might say, was STONE BEAR 
of SAND DANCERS this turn.  Course, I wouldn't say that, so much as have a belly 
laugh.  Heh heh.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches 
up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in JADE MOUNTAIN to get a drink than The Green 
Axe!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so nice! 
So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Zagwe -- Congrats!  You da man.  (wink) -- Mannequin

Give em heck, Soultaker!  We're taking a rest. -- FTF Manager (Manager Musings)

Mannequin -- Now, I've beaten all of you Manager Musings!  What team to pick on next?
-- Zagwe Banshee

Sernillan -- Just what I expected.  You are so easy for me. -- Jagielio Damask

Jade Belle -- Back on the winning side.  That will keep me out of the Dark Arena for
a few turns.  Thanks. -- Hozma Odemis

Korte Lu -- I don't know about Jagielio, but I like bashing your head in. --
Chamuscar

Jade Master -- Ouch!  My first loss.  Now I'm going to pick on Jade Belle.  Let's see
how you Jades like that.  Ha! -- Thia Arigo

Jagielio Damask -- You know how sometimes you wake up in the morning and you think,
"Today I'll do something different!"  Well, I woke up today and thought, "Today I'll
defeat J.D."  And I would've, too, but the stewards took the crossbow away from me.
Spoilsports. -- Sernillan

Hozha Odemis -- Huh, I should've gotten that win, because my name was mentioned last.
That's the SIGN, isn't it? -- Jade Belle

Chamuscar -- Hmm, did you mistake me for a pile you needed to drive?  The Infirmarian
had to use a corkscrew to get my head up out of my neck, and it was an unpleasant
experience. -- Korto Lu

Ah, standbys!  Gotta love 'em. -- Jaginru

Jaginru's nuts.  That standby worked me RAGGED, and there's no budget for patching my
pants. -- Stone Bear

FTF Manager -- Ah, there you put your finger on it.  There's always been a large body
of non-audience that has viewed the arena as a blot on the landscape, you know.
Bringing in all the dregs of Alastari, stuff like that.  Used to be we could stop
people like that at the ports, but now... (shrug) they flood in. -- an anonymous fan
