                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, JADE MOUNTAIN?  Ain't you never seen Snide 
Clemens before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, EL CAMINO:DOS, since 
SAND DANCERS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see TRES win a fight and gain 23 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, ENVANALIN beat INCREDIBLE SPEED and INCREDIBLE SPEED lost 9 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, JADE MOUNTAIN may be getting 
bland, as LIGHTNING THRUST stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, 
kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  
Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Ya gotta go sometime, and RIA BLUEBIRD's time was 
this time.  Hmmm, not a bad fighter, had she lived... (what?  me pity?).  We're all 
going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that 
later?   
     There's got to be a better place in JADE MOUNTAIN to get a drink than The Green 
Axe!  Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you have 
too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad to see the back of this place-- 
Snide Clemens

I'm fairly sure that lawyers deserve every blow that falls on them. -- Envanalin

Yep. -- Ria Bluebird

And the Swordbiter--what kind of thing is that to do?--is equally deserving. --
Mountain Storm

Wan-Fa, ah, now, there's an idiot.  I don't say unarmed combat skills are useless,
but would YOU bring them to a duel with someone who IS armed? -- Kogan Djian

I actually enjoyed toying with Sai-Ki. -- Winter Rose

And a five-oh turn for us, against nothing but standbys.  It's disconcerting. -- the
