                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of JADE MOUNTAIN!  Once again I've been called out of 
retirement for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with JADE LOTUS?  
She actually beat RUNEBLADES' RAGE, and walked away with 22 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at RUNEBLADES.  RAGE lost 17 points to JADE LOTUS.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe RAGE will provide more easy wins...  I can barely 
restrain my enthusiam for SAND DANCERS' outstanding member, Duelmaster CLAWS OF 
NIGHT.  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow 
fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to 
go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
The end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want 
to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Angel -- Your compliment is appreciated.  As to being "scary," I think that's in my
job description, along with "walks the hills at night," and such-like things. --
Claws of Night
P.S.  There are scary things in the dark, but I'm sufficiently fast on my feet to
avoid the ones I can't rip apart.  Just don't go out alone, okay?  Being angelic
won't save you, if you meet one of the REALLY bad ones.

Stillgard -- It's good to have you back, even when you defeat us left and right. --
Jorja and the Sand Dancers

Betwixt -- You're welcome. -- Ko-Hain
P.S.  Jorja says politeness is important and contributes to good will.  Do you feel
good will?

Yet another one-four, but THIS time, the win is mine.  Thank you, Betwixt. -- Claws
of Night

Locutus -- Well, damn.  What runes are those? -- Jade Lotus

Untamed Berzerker -- Are any berzerkers tamed?  It seems a contradiction in concepts.
-- Stone Hammer

Damn, a loss to a standby.  But he was a tough standby, does that count? -- Ko-Hain

Grus -- How can I be least popular?  Is this some kind of nasty, underhanded SPELL?
-- Han Ping
