                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  SAND DANCERS had cause to celebrate, after JADE RING got 11 points by 
beating CAPTAIN MONDINOR.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and 
practice more, after losing 5 points to MING-CHANG THE SLY.  (Discrete enough, KORTO 
LU?) SUNSET THUNDER found out that JADE MOUNTAIN isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be 
the best to be Duelmaster here!  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable 
walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     And how sociable are JADE MOUNTAIN's warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  I hear 
STONEWALKER of SAND DANCERS tired of the battles and was thinking of becoming a 
priest.  CHERYL MILLER of GREATS OF TROY saved him the effort of getting references.  
Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen 
into an unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in JADE MOUNTAIN is the highlight of my life.  As if 
buffeted by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  
Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for JADE MOUNTAIN?  On 
that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Quincy Watts -- My teammates tell me I should be GLAD you won and took the title, but
I'm NOT.  Just because you can win fights, bah, that's no reason to make you
duelmaster.  Can you write a few words of inspiration from the top?  I bet not. --
Jade Ring, sore loser

The venomous Lady Scorn had dark intentions toward me, but I thwarted them.  No,
really, she did and I did!  Honest! -- Korto Lu

I think Captain Mondinor must've spent too much time lately with Lady Scorn.  He
seemed a bit wobbly out there.  Not that I MIND winning, but it makes a bad
impression. -- Sunset Thunder
P.S.  Not me winning makes a bad impression, having a guard captain wobbling makes a
bad impression.  Sheesh, some people!

Cheryl Miller -- You don't look Trojan to me.  Not that I've ever met a Trojan, but
still. -- Tiger Lily

I suppose helping train guards is a way for the arena to make a little money, Mantor
knows the fights won't do it, but some of the material they send us is... inadequate.
-- Stonewalker
