                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon JADE MOUNTAIN, 
for I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  MANAGER MUSINGS?  Who?  SAND DANCERS is the 
top team these days, buddies!  PARANOID ASYLUM had cause to celebrate, after ABITA 
got 15 points by beating SUNSET THUNDER.  A certain someone should cut down on the 
drinking and practice more, after losing 17 points to ZELBAN SWORDBITER.  (Discrete 
enough, BEARSTONE KAI?) Can you believe it?  GARTH apparently has better things to do 
as JADE MOUNTAIN's Duelmaster than show up and fight!  What can be a greater victory? 
FOOTSTEPS has taken his place as the top, as JADE MOUNTAIN's new Duelmaster.  So 
who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds 
like a PR stunt to me.   
     So much to report, so little time!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have 
fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     All good things must come to an end.  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant 
prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Can anything 
compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for JADE MOUNTAIN?  On that giddy note 
I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

31 May 2008
Any and all who live in the 805 area, I would like for you to call me so we can get
together for BBQ's, softball games, and so on.  It has been a while since the last
get together (several years).  It was a blast and I am sure the next one will be
also.  We just have to do it.  All alliances are welcome.  Just because my warriors
leave your warrior beaten and bloody in defeat does not mean we can't have a beer or
five together.  I'll even buy the first round.  So call 805-588-3419 and ask for Dave
a.k.a. Misfit, former member of the Green and Purple Polka Dot Alliance (GAPPDA).
