                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of JADE MOUNTAIN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani 
Sharp Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Warriors--remember that glory 
waits always around the corner!  Witness how this week ZOMBIE SQUAD went 2-0-0 to 
move up 3 in the rankings.  IMNOTA GOAT caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as it skillfully bested LOCUTUS and was awarded 18 points in recognition.  
In one of the week's more notable duels, WINTER ROSE put down RAGE, causing him to 
lose 17 points of recognition in the process.  Although KOGAN DJIAN made a valiant 
effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious STREGOICA.  Heed this!  
A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city shall 
perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In JADE MOUNTAIN "art" is a word that 
has long since passed from the language!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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!  
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in JADE MOUNTAIN.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  More than a sharp eye must 
I keep, indeed a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of 
Alastari await me!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, 
but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Hmm, a LOT of standbys on the sands today.  I suppose it's good for them to keep
their skills sharp except... is this sharpness?  We defeated three standbys, and
we're not the sharpest swords in the rack. -- the Sand Dancers

Rage -- Ah, a little something to keep me humble?  But I don't WANT to be humble. --
Winter Rose

Garcia -- You darned zombies. -- Ko-Hain

Why is that our teammates learned more from the standbys than we did from our managed
opponents? -- Winter Rose and Ko-Hain
