                                      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.  My praise to ZOMBIE SQUAD for 
their 4-0-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving 
of notice!  BALISONG caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested JANDINA and was awarded 14 points in recognition.  Although 
MONDEKKER made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious 
QUEEN.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their 
position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in JADE MOUNTAIN these days is SHEWISH BUFFET.  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 ZOMBIE SQUAD last week.  Busy avoiding SHEWISH BUFFET?   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  
In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     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

Queen -- And yet another Kiwi moves up to the title.  It's a painful admission, but I
do believe that if you weren't worthiest, you wouldn't be duelmaster.  I know you
won'r write a column, or even personals, so:  Graduate soon! -- Kastenmar

Downer -- No lie. -- Mondekker

This Zelban Swordbiter, why is he?  Why would a human bite a sword?  I do not
