                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of JADE MOUNTAIN.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir 
to give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Practice pays 
for JAGUAR JON, who pummelled JADE MASTER, to pocket 10 points.  What can be a 
greater victory?  JADE RING has taken his place as the top, as JADE MOUNTAIN's new 
Duelmaster.  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and 
challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     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.  JADE MOUNTAIN, I 
leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Green Axe.  'Til 
next time-- Novgorodny Vir
