                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail JADE MOUNTAIN!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  And let's see, STONE HAMMER fought THORN and gained 7 points and 
contributed to SAND DANCERS' 2-3-0.  THORN has lost to STONE HAMMER, falling 6 
points, while helping make RUNEBLADES a 2-3-0 turn.  We should ask UNTAMED BERZERKER 
about the thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster does for a warrior, 
he's now the one to ask.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, 
cramped under the table at The Green Axe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  RUNEBLADES has cause to stand tall, as they 
were JADE MOUNTAIN's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And guess who avoided RUNEBLADES stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
BAD HANDWRITING!.  Anyone surprised?   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that JADE MOUNTAIN has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in JADE MOUNTAIN and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in JADE MOUNTAIN again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Code Thirteen -- Psssttt back at your, twenty-six. -- Jade Pearl

Locutus -- No, I did NOT "give" you a good fight.  You TOOK it. -- Jade Lotus
P.S.  And very well, too.

Thorn -- So far, we've managed to avoid Ducks on this team, and I hope we can keep it
so. -- Han Kang

We salute the tourney participants, with special nods for Xavier and Murderous
Thrust, tourney victors. -- Jorja and the Sand Dancers

One-four which is annoying, especially when that new guy got the only win!  I don't
know what we're coming to. -- Jade Lotus
P.S.  And I am NOT jealous.  Even though Rage hammered me.

Jabber Jaw -- I'm not laughing, are you laughing? -- Jade Pearl

Thorn -- I tried a seagull instead of a duck.  Didn't work. -- Han Kang
P.S.  Possibly because we're too far from the sea.
