                                      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 QUINCY WATTS win a fight and gain 23 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
ZELBAN SWORDBITER beat JADE RING and JADE RING lost 14 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, JADE MOUNTAIN may be getting bland, as 
CORINTHIAN stays top dog in the city.  The Green Axe, humph!  I've tasted better ale 
at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From JADE MOUNTAIN's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, SUNSET THUNDER was this turn's most challenged warrior.  
Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  I notice ABITA challenging down 22 points to 
fight SUNSET THUNDER, PARANOID ASYLUM doubtless has some rotten excuse for such an 
insult to honor.  And golly gee, ABITA won victory over SUNSET THUNDER.  Aren't we 
all surprised and impressed?   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in JADE MOUNTAIN to get a drink than The Green 
Axe!  Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you have 
too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see the crowds are getting 
restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens
