                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly JADE MOUNTAIN games.  My praise to APOKOLIPS for their 
3-1-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of 
notice!  CHI HO caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested ENCANTADORA and was awarded 22 points in recognition.  In one of 
the week's more notable duels, CHI HO put down ENCANTADORA, causing her to lose 21 
points of recognition in the process.  Most watched of the fights this week, the 
spotlight was on JADE WARRIOR as he bore arms against the Dark Arena Challenge of 
reigning Duelmaster MURDEROUS THRUST.  Not for nothing has MURDEROUS THRUST in the 
past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat 
skill yet again.  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this 
week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In JADE MOUNTAIN "art" is a word that 
has long since passed from the language!  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided 
when this week's challenge seeking began.  SAND DANCERS is feared.  This much I can 
say.  Apparently the stalwarts of APOKOLIPS are catching the bulk of jests down at 
the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Strange what qualities come forth in the face of 
certain doom.  MURDEROUS THRUST has the town astir with the news of his Dark Arena 
victory!  Many townsmen have begin to remark over the fact that after one more round 
of duels EL CAMINO:DOS' Bloodfeud against MURDEROUS THRUST will have expired.  Some 
say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger 
in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier 
than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
