                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt JADE MOUNTAIN will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as KIWI CONNECTIONS is pushed out of top team by ZOMBIE SQUAD, who came 
from 2nd with a 4-0-0 this turn.  And let's see, FRIED KHALANI fought GREEN ROCK and 
gained 16 points and contributed to SHEWISH BUFFET's 1-3-0.  GREEN ROCK has lost to 
FRIED KHALANI, falling 9 points, while helping make SAND DANCERS a 2-3-0 turn.  
Defending his title for another turn, DOWNER kept SAND DANCERS' warrior, MONDEKKER, 
from claiming the throne.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Green Axe uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about 
gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  We'd like to remind certain teams 
not to rob the graves of their enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered 
rude.   
     I like this place, JADE MOUNTAIN, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in JADE MOUNTAIN and 
I've a long road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen 
sets to paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Everywhere we look, SNACKS.  You could starve to death, WE could starve to death, on
nothing but snacks. -- the hungry Sand Dancers
P.S.  Seriously, if you can't get a blue ribbon meal, how about a "mere" blue plate
special?
