                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly JADE MOUNTAIN games.  WRATH caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested LENSI TU and was awarded 10 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, WRATH put down LENSI 
TU, causing her to lose 7 points of recognition in the process.  Although CHERYL 
MILLER made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious 
WATERLOO.  Would you believe that over half of the old women in JADE MOUNTAIN seem to 
feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In JADE MOUNTAIN "art" is a word that 
has long since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to 
beat in JADE MOUNTAIN these days is MASTERS OF SIN.  At least, most blades in town 
are looking to avoid them.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard 
pressed to find any of KIWI CONNECTIONS last week.  Busy avoiding MASTERS OF SIN?   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers 
the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     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!  Ahh, but I can hear the 
spires of a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - 
the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp

Hmm, kinda slow today.  A win against a standby.  A win against a different standby.
A loss to yet a third standby!  A win against a fourth standby.  The brutal give-and
take of the arena....

Wrath -- A real opponent!  I'm so excited that this honor should be mine!  A loss
that MEANS something, and three skills, thank you! -- Jandina
P.S.  I hope I didn't lay it on too thickly?

A salute to Jade Mountain's tourney participants, with special note taken of Wrath
and Nightbringer, tourney victors.  Good work! -- Jorja and the Sand Dancers
