                                      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.  Later days, SAND DANCERS, since 
SWORD FOR HIRE took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see KHARSYN win a fight and gain 13 points, terribly. 
Going for broke or broken, our Duelmaster HAGAR NORTHMAN Dark Arena Challenged this 
turn.  And if variety is the spice of life, JADE MOUNTAIN may be getting bland, as 
HORRIFYING ATTACK stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and 
bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  JADE 
MOUNTAIN, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  CRITICALS the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And who led the way in this mass act 
of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was SWORD FOR HIRE.  Ha ha ha ha!  
HAN KANG was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM 
insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  And we have JINA TYL RAY in a challenge, going down 8 
points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought JINA TYL RAY showed great skill and 
promise when she defeated RUMBLER.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Whoa!  I'll even buy HORRIFYING ATTACK a 
drink tonight!  Anyone who can come back from the Dark Arena, I want to be on his 
good side!  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up 
with you sooner that later?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide 
Clemens

Jade Mountain -- Greetings, everyone!  When Sword for Hire last stepped onto the sands 
of the magnificent JM Arena, it was Cycle 131, and my, have the last 17.5 years flown 
by.  So, tell me, what did I miss? ;P -- Angus McSweords, mgr. Sword for Hire 

Sand Dancers -- Nice to see a familiar face in the cozy gathering we have now.  Good 
luck to you. -- Angus

Debby Tonte -- A Spy report without the word "albendranious"?  I feel cheated. -- 
Angus, wondering how out of touch I am

Sayk -- Quiet wants me to tell you, "Good fight." -- Angus

Stone Cutter -- Better to cut stone than to cut me.  Thank you. -- Jina Tyl Ray

Barrels -- Exciting fight, sir. Could have gone either way. -- Blunt 

Horrifying Attack -- That was horrible. -- Han Kang

Jina tyl Ray -- I am NOT a "stupid idiot." -- Stone Cutter

And three wins over standbys.

We wave at the returning Sword for Hire team, glad to see you back.
