                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in JADE 
MOUNTAIN.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for STONE HAMMER, who flew up 17 points in the rankings after 
mashing MAORI like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it 
doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  KO-HAIN lost to ANGEL and drops 11 points.  
Well, everybody's pal TEASER II moved hers record to 13-6-1 by defeating WINTER ROSE 
in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 9 recognition points.  4 out of 5 
gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Here is other news that is of note.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your ally 
in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in JADE MOUNTAIN have 
no sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make 
some tracks.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud 
boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster
