                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon JADE MOUNTAIN, 
for I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  SAND DANCERS had cause to celebrate, after 
STONE HAMMER got 24 points by beating BETWIXT.  JADE LOTUS certainly had a baffled 
expression on hers face, after losing to IRON HANDED and losing 17 points in the 
process!  CLAWS OF NIGHT found out being JADE MOUNTAIN's Duelmaster isn't all nuts 
and berries, receiving 2 challenges!  What can be a greater victory?  ANGEL has taken 
hers place as the top, as JADE MOUNTAIN's new Duelmaster.  Word has it one team in 
JADE MOUNTAIN is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
The warriors at RUNEBLADES stable were more sober than usual, after BETWIXT's demise 
at the hands of STONE HAMMER.  STONE HAMMER, don't make any long term plans!  Oh 
hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     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

Three-two, and Han Ping dead.  Interesting.  Do you suppose that's why he was Least
Popular last time--the mark of death already on him?  Definitely something to bear in
mind, if any of the rest of us appear in that position.  So far, we're okay, because
Han Ping is STILL Least Popular. -- Claws of Night

Angel -- Seriously, do NOT go out at night alone!  What if I don't realize you've
done so in time to come after you? -- Claws of Night

WHAT?  I "actually beat Rage"?  Of COURSE I beat Rage, I have the experience edge and
am actually better than my record would suggest. -- Jade Lotus, brooding darkly

Ah, standbys!  And I do enjoy "demolishing" the Lawyer. -- Ko-Hain
P.S.  Although he didn't teach me anything.

Grus -- I keep expecting you to be taller.  Aren't you a crane or something? -- Stone
Hammer

Tooss -- You overgrown IDIOT!  How DARE you kill me?  I will not forget this, nor
forgive it! -- Ghost of Han Ping, settling in for some serious haunting
P.S.  For THIS, I got a strategy change?
