                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to JADE MOUNTAIN once again!  Bein' on top is great while it lasts, 
ZOMBIE SQUAD.  But how many friends do you have now?  It seems so recently people 
were saying CRITICALS was washed up, finished.  But 3-1-0 moved them up 1.  I guess 
they're washed no more...  What's with LIGHTNING THRUST?  He actually beat JADE 
MOUNTAIN's BAHNING THE LAWYER, and walked away with 18 more points from the fight.  
Major screwup at CRITICALS.  LEAPS INTO THE AIR lost 11 points to JANDINA.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe LEAPS INTO THE AIR will provide more easy wins...  I'm 
sure JADE MOUNTAIN is excited about GREEN ROCK, the new Duelmaster from SAND DANCERS. 
(remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  I suppose you want to hear 
some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting 
younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     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

Our congratulations to Ganoosh. -- Jorja and the Sand Dancers

We do NOT salute or congratulate Mondekker! -- Kastenmar and Jandina, who have
seniority and should have gone first

Ganoosh -- It is fitting. -- Green Rock

Okay, so Lady Scorn creamed me.  How was I to know he was sensitive about his gender?
It was only a casual comment! -- Kastenmar

Leaps into the Air -- Today, it was effective.  But what if there'd been a strong
wind blowing? -- Jandina

I, unlike my teammate, did not waste time and energy making casual comments about
Lady Scorn.  If he wants to go around like that, what is it to me?  The only thing
*I* cared about was winning. -- Mondekker

Lightning Thrust -- I knew we belonged together!  But with me in control, of course.
-- Mountain Storm
