                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in JADE MOUNTAIN!  I still haven't told Mom I'm 
writing Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for WINTER 
ROSE?  SAND DANCERS' proud of her after beating IRON HANDED and getting 19 points.  
Talk about yer major upsets!  IRON HANDED's match with WINTER ROSE cost him a loss of 
14 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think DEADLY FORCE 
should let KO-HAIN 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!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys 
can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Its been 
really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte
