                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
JADE MOUNTAIN brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see IRON HANDED win a fight and gain 13 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
IRON HANDED beat RAGE and RAGE lost 7 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Looks like 
JADE MOUNTAIN has some guts at least, CLAWS OF NIGHT the Duelmaster was this turn's 
most-challenged warrior.  ANGEL challenged JADE MOUNTAIN's Duelmaster for a shot at 
the throne.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as ANGEL takes the Title and 
last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  I'm not in a very good mood 
today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, JADE 
MOUNTAIN?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  
RUNEBLADES, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team.  
Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And it looks like GRIZZLED VETERANS 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  We're all going to die in the end, so why 
worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in JADE MOUNTAIN to get a drink than The Green 
Axe!  Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you have 
too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad to see the back of this place--

One-four AGAIN?  Oops.  At least none of the losses were to standbys, which also
means that there are (gasp!) OTHER GLADIATORS active here.  It's worth a few losses,
which are nothing new to us, after all. -- Claws of Night
