                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon JADE MOUNTAIN, 
for I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Practice pays for CORINTHIAN, who pummelled 
SUNSET THUNDER, to pocket 11 points.  SUNSET THUNDER certainly had a baffled 
expression on his face, after losing to CORINTHIAN and losing 6 points in the 
process!  Can you believe it?  FOOTSTEPS apparently has better things to do as JADE 
MOUNTAIN's Duelmaster than show up and fight!  What can be a greater victory?  
CORINTHIAN 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.   
     And how sociable are JADE MOUNTAIN's warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  JADE MOUNTAIN, I leave you now.  The 
Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Green Axe.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny 
Vir
