Hail Jade Mountain!

     First I would like to thanks Claws for a fantastic fight.  We have had a few
battles, three to be exact, and I was honored that our rubber match was the one that
earned me my first DM title.  I do have to say you are one scary guy!  Iron Handed is
another one.  Do all you guys have to be so big?  Anyway, it's great to be number one
here in Jade Mountain and I hope to be here again next turn!

Later,
     Angel

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  JADE MOUNTAIN needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Like, GRIZZLED 
VETERANS had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by RUNEBLADES!  
Way to go RUNEBLADES!  MVP award for RAGE?  RUNEBLADES' proud of him after beating 
IRON HANDED and getting 24 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  IRON HANDED got 
smashed by RAGE, and lost 16 points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  ANGEL 
stopped DESTRUCTIVE ENERGY dead in his tracks!  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?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, 
that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  JADE MOUNTAIN is like such a dump, and you 
guys smell too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby 
Tonte

Jade Mountian -- It's good to be back! -- Stillgard, mgr Runeblades

Crom -- Thank you!  I was starting to think I would not win another fight! -- Locutus

Iron Handed -- How the heck do you slash with your foot?  Well done. -- Rage

     Untrimmed toenails.

Ko-Hain -- My thanks, sir. -- Betwixt

Jabber Jaw -- Strange seeing a shark out of the water! -- Grus

Our congratulations to Wrath, returned just long enough to leave us for good.  No, I
take that back, Wrath did not return and is graduating in absentia.  Ah, well. --
Jade Lotus

And again one-four!  It's enough to discourage any sensible gladiator or manager.
Good thing we don't have any of those associated with our team.  I was most
challenged, which, as I was duelmaster, is proper.  I congratulate Angel. -- Claws of
Night
P.S.  I'm not really Shewish, you know.  But my father was a Kangsa, and they're as
tall as Shews, but not Alastarian.  We grow them here, farther up the mountains.

Tooss -- Bad match for you, even if you have hidden tourney fights.  Because I like
hitting people who are bigger than me. -- Stone Hammer

Heck, a standby. -- Jade Lotus, embarrassed

Betwixt -- It was the puzzle that got me.  Betwixt what and which? -- Ko-Hain

Cen -- Grossly unfair! -- Han Ping

P.S.  How can I be least popular?  I'm good looking, charming, and RICH.
P.P.S.  Okay, moderately well-off.  I ended up in the arena through losing a bet.
Remind me never to bet against a Lucan again!
