                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, JADE MOUNTAIN?  Ain't you never seen Snide 
Clemens before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see STONE HAMMER win a fight and gain 13 points, terribly.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, JADE MOUNTAIN may be getting bland, as DESTRUCTIVE 
ENERGY stays top dog in the city.  The Green Axe, humph!  I've tasted better ale at 
mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From JADE MOUNTAIN's trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for JADE 
MOUNTAIN's morgue.  More variety.  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  LOCUTUS, a glorious 
21-18-0 fighter, has passed away.  Gee, too bad RUNEBLADES.  We're all going to die 
in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in JADE MOUNTAIN to get a drink than The Green 
Axe!  Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you have 
too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see the crowds are getting 
restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Locutus -- Ouch.  Well done.  If I have to be "overcome," better to have it done by
an expert.  I guess. -- Stone Hammer the dubious

Code Thirteen -- You're just bad luck any way around. -- Han Kang
P.S.  But at least you aren't a killer.  That would be worse.

Bluebird -- Annoying Bird, if you ask me.  Flaunting your coloring.  Bah. --
Meadowlark

This Lightfinger Lu dude is weird and insanely reckless.  He actually picked my
pocket (in a manner of speaking, I wasn't wearing formal pockets) AFTER I vanquished
him. -- Stonefall
