                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt JADE MOUNTAIN will ever be the same.  And let's see, LIGHTNING THRUST fought 
MOUNTAIN STORM and gained 16 points and contributed to CRITICALS' 2-1-0.  MOUNTAIN 
STORM has lost to LIGHTNING THRUST, falling 13 points, while helping make SAND 
DANCERS a 3-2-0 turn.  Defending his title for another turn, LEAPS INTO THE AIR kept 
SAND DANCERS' warrior, GREEN ROCK, from claiming the throne.  By the way, was that 
our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Green Axe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  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.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in JADE MOUNTAIN and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in JADE MOUNTAIN again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Leaps Into the Air -- Always you are leaping and dashing.  This is your nature as a
Fast Person, but I find it alien and wasteful.  You miss much that occurs because you
look too fast. -- Green Rock

Bah, standbys! -- Jandina

Incredible Speed -- That was a complete blur to me. -- Mountain Storm, whose eyes do
not move that fast

Parry Slip -- Haven't we done this before? -- Envanalin

That was shocking!  I was aiming at Tan's arm, not realizing that he had his heart on
his sleeve, and before I knew it, he was dead! -- Ria Bluebird
P.S.  There seems to be more to this gladiation than I realized.
