                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out JADE MOUNTAIN 
to see what's new.  MVP award for IRON HANDED?  CRITICALS' proud of him after beating 
JADE LOTUS and getting 24 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  JADE LOTUS' match 
with IRON HANDED cost her a loss of 19 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is 
being unfair?  I think STREGOICA should let XAVIER be Duelmaster for a while, without 
fighting about it.  Who was the wiseguy that said JADE MOUNTAIN's Duelmaster was 
paying for drinks at The Green Axe?  Don't look at me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed 
up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  JADE MOUNTAIN is like such a dump, and you guys smell too 
much!  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte
