                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in JADE MOUNTAIN since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf 
Modeen adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with 
INCREDIBLE SPEED?  He actually beat JADE MOUNTAIN's CAPTAIN MONDINOR, and walked away 
with 14 more points from the fight.  Try as she might, ENVANALIN wasn't good enough 
at persuading LIGHTNING THRUST to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  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.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  LIGHTNING THRUST killed ENVANALIN, and expects revenge from 
SAND DANCERS.  The dead are better off dead--they have no worries.  Here's some 
advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
JADE MOUNTAIN is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  
Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- 
Olaf Modeen
