                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Nothing is certain in JADE MOUNTAIN, with changing loyalties, changing 
Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--GRIZZLED VETERANS.  Practice pays for 
UNTAMED BERZERKER, who pummelled STONE HAMMER, to pocket 18 points.  A certain 
someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 17 points to 
UNTAMED BERZERKER.  (Discrete enough, STONE HAMMER?) What can be a greater victory?  
DESTRUCTIVE ENERGY has taken his place as the top, as JADE MOUNTAIN's new Duelmaster. 
Word has it one team in JADE MOUNTAIN is taking speech lessons to try to bore their 
opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of CRITICALS, alone and unchallenged.  Like a pup 
with its tail between its legs, GRIZZLED VETERANS scurried away from CRITICALS.  Oh, 
the shame!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not a 
spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an 
unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in JADE MOUNTAIN is the highlight of my life.  As if 
buffeted by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  
Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid JADE MOUNTAIN farewell-- 
Novgorodny Vir

Hmm, we go four-one, with three of the wins being over standbys, the other two fights

against Criticals.  And the Grizzled Veterans defeat four standbys.  I suppose it
sounds good if you say it fast. -- Winter Rose
