                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly JADE MOUNTAIN games.  A new guild, GRIZZLED VETERANS, 
entered JADE MOUNTAIN with a clash this turn, showing off a 3-0-1 record.  Indeed, a 
worthy addition to the city guilds.  KO-HAIN caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested KO-HA OAKCHOPPER and was awarded 15 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, IRON HANDED put down 
WINTER ROSE, causing her to lose 3 points of recognition in the process.  Although 
JADE LOTUS made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious DEADLY FORCE.  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!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena 
there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in JADE MOUNTAIN as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till 
we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no 
one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Criticals -- I guess it's just us and you again.  But winter is a time of austerity,
after all. -- Sand Dancers

Major congratulations for Samurai in the tourney (though he was on a different team
back then, managerial changes, no doubt), and a salute for the other contestants. --
Jorja and the Sand Dancers

Two Criticals, three standbys, and us today.  And what a surprise, we defeated the
standbys and lost to the Criticals.  Still, it's a job, and that is not to be
scorned. -- the Sand Dancers
