                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I am once again top dog here in Jade Mountain.  Thanks, Kogan, for another good
fight.  One of these times you will hit me and that makes me nervous!  Stillgard
tells me I am close to getting an invitation to the Isle, but I am staying focused on
my next fight.  I am making no challenges this turn.  It sure looks like I will be
fighting someone from False Overtures.  They have the top three rated Challengers.
Either way, I still expect to be here next turn.  Until then!

                                          -- Xavier

                                      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.  SAND DANCERS 
had cause to celebrate, after WINTER ROSE got 25 points by beating TEASER II.  Win 
some, lose some.  Speaking of which, WINTER ROSE was winsome, after beating TEASER II 
and seeing her lose 23 points.  XAVIER successfully staved off a grab for the roses 
by LING of FALSE OVERTURES.  Does JADE MOUNTAIN have no one talented enough to 
dethrone him?  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and 
ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     And how sociable are JADE MOUNTAIN's warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in JADE MOUNTAIN is the highlight of my life.  My 
fingers tire and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my 
impeccable character.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for 
JADE MOUNTAIN?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

All -- Sorry for the lack of ads last turn, I got turn 502 and 503 on the same day.
-- Guido

Kogan -- Excellent fight, and you have my thanks for the rating. -- Ling

Jang-Ko Blackhand -- Hey!  I'm supposed to be retired now.  I had my eye on a nice
little in out in the country and everything.  Now Guido says I have to keep fighting.
-- Nareen

Angel -- I think we both know why I won that fight.  I don't want to face you in the
future. -- Nareen

Stregoica -- I don't know if you'll read this, but congrats.  I would have liked to
have faced you with a little more even experience, though. -- Anda

Rage -- I'm a little surprised I won that.  Maybe you need to calm down a little, all
that rage can't be helping you focus. -- Teaser

Winter Rose -- I'm a lot surprised I won that one, all things considered.  Thanks for
the rating. -- Teaser

Jade Lotus -- I figured that would be a good challenge for me, but I'm really not
happy with the comeback matchup.  I guess that's what happens in a small arena, but I
don't have to like it.  Here's hoping we don't face each other again for quite some
time. -- Starr

Iron Handed -- You are one to keep an eye on. -- Locutus

Nareen -- Sigh... -- Angel

Claws -- Shocking! -- Rage

Garcia -- Well fought. -- Maori

Damn.  One-four, and because *I* got the win, I have to write the personal.  Two
losses to Runeblades, two losses to False Overturers, and I defeated Imnota Goat (who
actually IS) of the Zombie Squad.  Such is life in a small arena. -- Ko-Hain
P.S.  We might not have won more in a bigger arena, but there would have been more
variety, I bet.
