                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in JADE MOUNTAIN since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf 
Modeen adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with JADE 
LOTUS?  She actually beat RUNEBLADES' LOCUTUS, and walked away with 18 more points 
from the fight.  Laughs were big at SAND DANCERS while they watched JADE LOTUS 
clobber LOCUTUS.  He lost 13 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  What a role model for JADE MOUNTAIN's young 'uns!  UNTAMED BERZERKER becomes 
Duelmaster, but don't bother to fight no more!  I'm sure JADE MOUNTAIN is excited 
about JADE LOTUS, the new Duelmaster from SAND DANCERS.  (remember?)  But when you've 
seen as many as I have...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  
I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  JADE MOUNTAIN thinks 
RUNEBLADES and their 95-89-4 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  
The bums at BAD HANDWRITING! couldn't face the challenges from RUNEBLADES!  No excuse 
for that!   
     Warriors of JADE MOUNTAIN unite.  You have only your games to lose!  I like to 
see warriors put young whippersnappers in their place.  I guess you could say 
RUNEBLADES'THORN did just that.  Right SAND DANCERS?  Here's some advice:  study your 
opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen
