                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in JADE 
MOUNTAIN.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for RAGE, who flew up 20 points in the rankings after mashing 
DESTRUCTIVE ENERGY like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it 
doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  THORN was bested by JADE PEARL and drops 15 
points.  It's a proud day for the CRITICALS stable, as their warrior, IRON HANDED, 
ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion 
a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the JADE MOUNTAIN arena.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your ally 
in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, there's the manager of the JADE MOUNTAIN giving me the 'cut' sign (or is 
that 'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the 
world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  See ya 
next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster
