                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, I suppose it balances.  Mountain Storm lost the title by losing to the
damned Dwarf, then I defeat the Dwarf and get the title.  But we could use some
managed warriors here.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of JADE MOUNTAIN.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir 
to give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Nothing is 
certain in JADE MOUNTAIN, with changing loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this 
down:  new top team--EL CAMINO:DOS.  Practice pays for FEUNTE, who pummelled FAN TAL, 
to pocket 15 points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice 
more, after losing 12 points to FEUNTE.  (Discrete enough, FAN TAL?) Out with the 
old, in with the new.  Enter JADE MASTER, handily defeating KOGAN DJIAN.  With 69 
points, MOUNTAIN STORM of SAND DANCERS takes the position of JADE MOUNTAIN's 
Duelmaster.  Word has it one team in JADE MOUNTAIN is taking speech lessons to try to 
bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not for whom the 
sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of 
writing Spyreports for JADE MOUNTAIN?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- 
Novgorodny Vir

Bandidos Guapo -- As if!  You want ME to call you guapo, you can't go around hitting
me. -- Winter Rose
P.S.  That's reasonable, isn't it?

Feunte -- What makes that defeat "narrow," I wonder?  We aren't either one of us
really "narrow" people. -- Fan Tal

Guardsman Tan is a pussycat. -- Claws of Night
P.S.  Metaphorically.
