                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, JADE MOUNTAIN?  Ain't you never seen Snide 
Clemens before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see ANGEL win a fight and gain 19 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, KOGAN 
DJIAN beat RAGE and RAGE lost 7 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Looks like JADE 
MOUNTAIN has some guts at least, XAVIER the Duelmaster was this turn's 
most-challenged warrior.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as ANDA takes 
the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  I'm not in a 
very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, 
don't you, JADE MOUNTAIN?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  And what a stunning loss we have here, 
boys and girls, STARR of FALSE OVERTURES has added the final loss to hers 8-5-0.  Tee 
hee!  Three down, and one turn to go for EL CAMINO:DOS to call in the bloodfeud 
against XAVIER, else TRES is but small history.  We're all going to die in the end, 
so why worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste 
this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide 
Clemens

Xavier -- You selfish, selfish, man.  Don't you realize, if you had let me take the
throne, you would still have gotten your invitation, and I probably would have gotten
mine as well.  Then you wouldn't have had to ride to the Isle alone.  Ah, well, I
really wouldn't want the throne given to me, anyway.  Congrats, and I hope to see you
at the Isle soon. -- Ling

Kogan -- It's good to get back on the positive side of the ledger. -- Anda

Winter Rose -- To be honest, that's more what I expected from our first fight.  I'm
guessing we'll be seeing more of each other. -- Teaser

Locutus -- This strategy change I made when I fought Jang-Ko really seems to have
improved my fortunes. -- Nareen

Angel -- Not sure how I managed that. -- Starr

Our congratulations to Xavier. -- Jorja and the Sand Dancers
P.S.  Kogan's details available if anyone wants to see 'em.

Guido -- We'll forgive you the lack of personals on previous turns, provided you
don't do it again! -- Jorja

Ling -- You're welcome.  I like to think I'm passing along what I've learned. --
Kogan Djian

Teaser -- I was... well, not surprised, call it disappointed.  But that's how it
goes, sometimes.  Glad I could help you out. -- Winter Rose

Starr -- So far, so good. -- Jade Lotus

Rage -- Absolutely! -- Claws of Night

Anda -- I can appreciate a good looking lady as well as the next man.  Glad to give
you that win, since I no longer need to worry about it. -- Kogan Djian
P.S.  And thanks for the rating, I figure that's what tipped me over the edge.

Teaser -- Ah, I do like a chance to look good! -- Winter Rose

Rage -- Bummer. -- Ko-Hain

Iron Handed -- I'd like to introduce you to a smelter I know.... -- Claws of Night

Deadly Force -- A pleasant turn-around on that sentence!  Much better than me being
devastated by deadly force. -- Jade Lotus
