                                      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.  LOKI caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested TALK-TO-DEATH and was awarded 14 
points in recognition.  Not for nothing has LEAPS INTO THE AIR in the past laid claim 
to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  No 
confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their position using 
magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city JADE MOUNTAIN.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears 
arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     The girls are as pretty in JADE MOUNTAIN as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  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

value for one such as myself. -- Green Rock, firmly grounded

And a couple of standbys lose, as they should. -- Kastenmar and Jandina

madness, and my manager is too prone to it anyway, but you must realize that I, too,
can do the lightning thrust.  It's my nature. -- Mountain Storm
