                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in JADE MOUNTAIN since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf 
Modeen adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Woof!  SAND DANCERS 
were a bunch of dogs after ZOMBIE SQUAD got through with 'em!  3rd ain't so sweet as 
1st!  What's with MOUNTAIN STORM?  He actually beat JADE MOUNTAIN's TALK-TO-DEATH, 
and walked away with 13 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at SAND DANCERS.  
MONDEKKER lost 19 points to BALISONG.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe MONDEKKER 
will provide more easy wins...  GREEN ROCK was reminded on the sands why BUBBA is 
Duelmaster.  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every 
day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  Are you 
as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Our congratulations to Bubba and Nightbringer. -- Jorja and the Sand Dancers

Bubba -- Yep, I can see why they want you on the Isle.  Good luck to you there, it
won't be as easy as it is here. -- Jandina

The thing with dwarves is, the gods have already started whittling them down to size,
so it's easy to just keep on. -- Mondekker

Nightbringer -- The Rock was going to write you some comment on the unsoundness of
disbelieving something that happened before your eyes, but the rest of the team felt
that was TOTALLY inadequate.  On behalf of our teammate Green Rock, we crow!  We
gloat! -- the rest of the Sand Dancers
P.S.  Okay, and we're amazed.  But not unbelieving.

Ganoosh -- I was distracted, okay?  I thought you were something else.  Or someone
else.  Whatever.  No doubt that was a good fight, for you. -- Kastenmar

Lightning Thrust -- Are you sure that shouldn't have been MY move? -- Mountain Storm
