                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in JADE MOUNTAIN a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets 
poor.  So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, CLAWS OF 
NIGHT fought MING-CHANG THE SLY and gained 15 points and contributed to SAND DANCERS' 
5-0-0.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and KOGAN DJIAN remains 
JADE MOUNTAIN's top warrior for another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have 
heard from unimpeachable sources that The Green Axe uses trolls in their stew.  Talk 
about gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  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.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in JADE MOUNTAIN again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

A 1-4 turn?  Nothing to boast about, especially when two of those loses were to
standbys!  At least I kept the title on a win, even if THAT was against a standby,
too.  So I think the only thing to say here is, May the new year be better! -- Kogan
Djian, duelmaster by default

ALL -- MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL IN ALASTARI!!!
