                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in JADE MOUNTAIN since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf 
Modeen adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with 
JAGINRU?  He actually beat MANAGER MUSINGS' MANNEQUIN, and walked away with 10 more 
points from the fight.  Major screwup at MANAGER MUSINGS.  MANNEQUIN lost 4 points to 
JAGINRU.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe MANNEQUIN will provide more easy 
wins...  See how the Duelmaster challenged SAND DANCERS' SERNILLAN?  That sort of 
initiative is how he got where he is now.  SERNILLAN was reminded on the sands why 
GARTH is Duelmaster.  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  JADE 
MOUNTAIN thinks SAND DANCERS and their 709-1113-23 is too much!  If at first you 
don't succeed, give up...  In my day, no team with a 706-1111-23 would scare me off!  
What's the problem, MANAGER MUSINGS?  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, SERNILLAN!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt 
you.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every 
day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
JADE MOUNTAIN is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  I 
don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

What?!  Brujah is graduating at 14-0?!  What wrath have the gods bestowed?! -- Dr
Doom

Ventriie -- I am the true Duelmaster.  You are just a temp filling the vacated slot.
-- Brujah

Bluette -- I loved putting it to you. -- Brujah

Blu Jon -- That was a close, close battle.  Salute. -- Gangrel

Khalhums Dwarf?  A dwarf is a dwarf is a dwarf. -- Ventriie

Blessings Hammer -- Pray.  Pray some more.  That's all the advice I have to offer. --
Hodur

FtF Manager -- Do you suppose it would do any good if we were to find some topic of
absorbing and adventurous interest here?  Fill the empty stands and drown out the
roaring silence?  Or should we just petition to have this arena, also, closed down?
-- Jorja, having had a less than first-rate day

Garth -- There it goes again. -- Sernillan

Mannequin -- Wow, you LOST?  Maybe you need to practice more. -- Jade Belle

Soultaker -- Sounds like some kind of necromancer to me, and there's a call out to
trash the necromancers. -- Jaginru

And a couple of standbys.

Soultaker -- I find myself confused about this "death stud."  Some sort of "magical
cufflink of destruction," perhaps? -- Captain Mondinor
