                                      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.  WINTER ROSE caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested SAI-KI THE PEGLEG and 
was awarded 13 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, 
MOUNTAIN STORM put down LIGHTNING THRUST, causing him to lose 11 points of 
recognition in the process.  Most watched of the fights this week, the spotlight was 
on STORMFALL as he bore arms against the Dark Arena Challenge of reigning Duelmaster 
LEAPS INTO THE AIR.  The crowds were amazed this turn, as STORMFALL killed the 
Duelmaster, LEAPS INTO THE AIR, leaving CRITICALS in mourning.  With bloody hand 
INCREDIBLE SPEED has ascended to the throne of champions.  Is he that one which is 
spoken of in the ancient texts?  Would you believe that over half of the old women in 
JADE MOUNTAIN seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     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 
we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no 
one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

may have been several standbys out there, but they were all losing. -- Mountain

breakfast, but they taste awful. -- Kogan Djian

Argh -- You said it! -- Winter Rose
