                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome JADE MOUNTAIN.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the 
fights have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Woof!  
RUNEBLADES were a bunch of dogs after SAND DANCERS got through with 'em!  2nd ain't 
so sweet as 1st!  What's with THE HAPPY F?  He actually beat JADE MOUNTAIN's SHIZARAN 
BLACKHEART, and walked away with 16 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at 
RUNEBLADES.  BLUEBIRD lost 9 points to HAN KANG.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  
Maybe BLUEBIRD will provide more easy wins...  GRUS was reminded on the sands why 
DESTRUCTIVE ENERGY is Duelmaster.  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 104-97-5 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up... 
Management must be dealin', as the boys at BAD HANDWRITING! ain't reelin'!  
RUNEBLADES' mad!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master 
many skills, fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
JADE MOUNTAIN is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time 
for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Three-two, with a couple of standbys helping out.  Are we complaining?  Not so you'd
notice, I hope!  And the new guy showed up (without an overview, is he legal without
an introductory overview?) and defeated a standby.  Life could be a lot worse. --
