                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out JADE MOUNTAIN 
to see what's new.  MVP award for RAGE?  RUNEBLADES' proud of him after beating 
KO-HAIN and getting 15 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  KO-HAIN got smashed 
by RAGE, and lost 14 points!  What a putz!  DESTRUCTIVE ENERGY fights so hard to be 
Duelmaster, then quits fighting and loses the title.  No one said he was a genius...  
And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome 
CLAWS OF NIGHT.  Aren't SAND DANCERS proud.  (Oh, my.) I hear the top team insists 
all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR 
photos.   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  The warriors of CRITICALS must be 
getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I 
don't?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are GRIZZLED VETERANS?  CRITICALS, an easy team 
to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Hey you guys, don't you think your 
families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     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

One-four?  Turnabout, fair enough, I suppose, not that any of us really LIKES it.  My
loss to Destructive Energy is no surprise, the man may be small, and a lowlander to
boot, but he's well named.  What really annoys is that two of the other losses were
to standbys!  Ridiculous.  Claws did well, defeating Iron Handed--he thought that
gave him the right to do this personal, but he was wrong.  If he wins again, he can
do the NEXT one.  The others... sad, but not surprising. -- Winter Rose
