                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome JADE MOUNTAIN.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the 
fights have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with 
KASTENMAR?  He actually beat KIWI CONNECTIONS' QUEEN, and walked away with 24 more 
points from the fight.  Major screwup at KIWI CONNECTIONS.  QUEEN lost 17 points to 
KASTENMAR.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe QUEEN will provide more easy wins... 
Try as he might, MONDEKKER wasn't good enough at persuading WATERLOO to step down 
from the Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!  
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  JADE 
MOUNTAIN thinks SHEWISH BUFFET and their 2-20-0 is too much!  If at first you don't 
succeed, give up...  In my day, no team with a 2-20-0 would scare me off!  What's the 
problem, PARTY ANIMALS?  What do people see in GREEN ROCK?  Its 7-2-0?  SAND DANCERS 
ain't talkin', but it's got 23 points.   
     Warriors of JADE MOUNTAIN unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Many a 
warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
The end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Waterloo -- Wait a minute, it says here, on the fight report, that my "popularity has
marginally increased."  Fine, I lost, so that makes sense.  But then I look at my
recognition, and it hasn't changed ONE POINT.  How is this "marginally increased"? --
Mondekker

Downer -- At least the audience loved me. -- Lensi Tu

Ooooh, a Dangerous Criminal!  Ah, I mean, a dangerous person against whom nothing
criminal has been proven because there are no witnesses. -- Kastenmar

Nightbringer -- Thing is, I don't want more night.  At this time of year, we've got
too much already. -- Jandina

Fried Khalani -- As a golem without a "gourmand function," I can't judge your recipe,
but my teammates seem to feel that it's "too greasy." -- Green Rock

                                  LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS
