                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of JADE MOUNTAIN!  Once again I've been called out of 
retirement for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with QUIET LONER? 
He actually beat APOKOLIPS' LADY SMOKE, and walked away with 18 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at SWORD FOR HIRE.  PREACHER ROWE lost 12 points to HAN KANG.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe PREACHER ROWE will provide more easy wins...  
Apparently JADE MOUNTAIN isn't filled with as many gutless wonders as I thought.  The 
Dreaded Duelmaster got 2 challenges this turn!  JADE MOUNTAIN has a Duelmaster who 
doesn't sit back and get lazy.  He Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's STONEWALKER 
(0-0-0), which should prove (ahem!) interesting.  Try as he might, STONEWALKER wasn't 
good enough at persuading HORRIFYING ATTACK to step down from the Duelmaster's 
throne...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some 
team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  JADE MOUNTAIN thinks 
CRITICALS and their 205-113-18 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give 
up...  The bums at SWORD FOR HIRE couldn't face the challenges from CRITICALS!  No 
excuse for that!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Who will dare fight HORRIFYING ATTACK, after he 
returned from the Dark Arena?  (For the record 13-2-4 is 107, and has he points) How 
long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Kharadmon -- Thanks, it's good to be back.  I remember you from the Forums.  Nice to 
see you here in Jade Mountain. -- Angus McSweords

Jorja -- Ah, Li Dan, that's the name I remember for Sand Dancers.  Yes, I do enjoy 
fiction. I wrote a few Team Spotlights here, back in the day.  I'll toss in a few ads 
each turn, don't know about anything more than that :(  Although, with this team's 
hired sword angle it shouldn't be too hard to come up with something every now and 
then. -- Angus

Barrels -- Good job.  Somewhere in all of that I may have found a better weapon.  Or 
maybe not. :/ -- Jina tyl Ray

Vicious Slash -- Quiet wants me to tell you, "Nice fight!" Indeed, it was very 
exciting. -- Angus 

Good fights last turn, one and all.  It made for an enjoyable day at the arena.  Now, 
I'm off for a night cap. -- Angus

Blunt Trauma -- Nothing like living up to your name.  Ow. -- Han Kang

Kharsyn -- Huh, given your issues with deftness, I consider myself lucky to come out 
of that one alive. -- Rumbler
P.S.  Jorja says to tell your manager "Hi!"

Sayk -- Yep.  I just visualized you as a stone. -- Stone Cutter

And two wins over standbys.  Very good!  A three-two turn for us. -- Chi Ho
