                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of JADE MOUNTAIN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani 
Sharp Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Did only my eyes note the 
4-1-0 record which SAND DANCERS managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such 
a record will draw challengers!  JANDINA caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as she skillfully bested BAHNING THE LAWYER and was awarded 17 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, QUEEN put down CHERYL MILLER, 
causing her to lose 2 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has 
WATERLOO in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week she's 
proven hers combat skill yet again.  Would you believe that over half of the old 
women in JADE MOUNTAIN seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators? 
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city JADE MOUNTAIN.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing 
is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in JADE MOUNTAIN.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Sadly warriors, now longer 
can I keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  
Till next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise 
are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
