                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon JADE MOUNTAIN, 
for I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  What's a move up by 3 you ask?  (alright, 
maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to WEIRD STUDENTS.  APOKOLIPS 
had cause to celebrate, after ENCANTADORA got 16 points by beating MEADOWLARK.  
MEADOWLARK certainly had a baffled expression on hers face, after losing to 
ENCANTADORA and losing 4 points in the process!  What can be a greater victory?  
STRAWBERRY JHANS has taken hers place as the top, as JADE MOUNTAIN's new Duelmaster.  
So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  
Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     So much to report, so little time!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in 
RUNEBLADES are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  The 
warriors of RUNEBLADES found their efforts at combat frustrated as APOKOLIPS 
apparently had more important things to do than fight.  Is it charming personality?  
Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, HAN KANG is the most 
challenged warrior.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Questions are 
being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain 
tavern in JADE MOUNTAIN would I avoid!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant prattling 
may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Do not despair!  I shall 
return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Runeblades & Dead Meat -- Welcome to the beautiful secluded mountain known as Jade 
Mountain.  Don't let boredom or intimidation run you off.  My name is Scorpio, owner 
of Apokolips.  If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.  See you on the 
sands. -- Scorpio of Team Apokolips

Shewish Buffet -- That wasn't nice.  Be ready to face the Thunder *next* turn.  I give 
you a one-turn reprieve, just once... *frowns* -- Scorpio

Hound Archon -- You any good at hunting things like panthers and bears?  We've got 
some around. -- Stonefall

Blue Plate Special -- I think you must've exceeded your shelf-life... and mine. -- Chi 
Ho

Strawberry Jhans --  Where was the whipped cream? -- Stone Hammer

Morty Pella -- Too bad you don't live up to your team name. -- Han Kang
P.S.  Go ahead, laugh.  I don't mind.

Code Thirteen -- Your code has been broken, you need a new one. -- Meadowlark

I let things get away from me this week, so no spotlight today.  I'd say I was sorry 
about that, but if no one writes even a single personal, why should I do more? -- 
Jorja the mildly annoyed
