                                      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 CRITICALS' BARRELS, and walked away with 14 more points from the 
fight.  Laughs were big at SWORD FOR HIRE while they watched QUIET LONER clobber 
BARRELS.  He lost 13 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  
Apparently JADE MOUNTAIN isn't filled with as many gutless wonders as I thought.  The 
Dreaded Duelmaster got 2 challenges this turn!  SWORD FOR HIRE's hatred of APOKOLIPS 
surfaced again as BLUNT TRAUMA challenged JADE MOUNTAIN's top dog.  BLUNT TRAUMA was 
reminded on the sands why HOUND ARCHON 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.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, APOKOLIPS!  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at SWORD FOR HIRE ain't reelin'!  APOKOLIPS' 
mad!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Hmm...  More surprises must remain in store for me, 
if HORRIFYING ATTACK can return from the Dark Arena.  Who will dare fight PREACHER 
ROWE, after he returned from the Dark Arena?  (For the record 19-16-1 is 104, 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.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Well, this comes as a surprise, Preacher Rowe graduating with, by my count, 15 
political points.  Not to look a gift horse in the mouth, I'll take it, but maybe 
something changed in my 18 year hiatus. -- Angus McSweords, not afraid to "Break the 
Fourth Wall"  

Barrels -- It's been a barrel of fun.  Maybe I'll see you in retirement. -- Preacher 
Rowe

For those interested in such things, my favorites are the Medium Shield, H/L, Riposte.  
Now off to the pasture, never to fight again.  Angus, ever the trickster, is telling 
me I'm fighting in the Dark Arena, to taste what death or survival is really like.  
Ha!  He's such a kidder. -- Preacher Rowe

Chi Ho -- Hey, I'm sending you an apple.  You're a good teacher. -- Jina tyl Ray

Stone Cutter -- In the words of that great orator of old, Debby Tonte:  That was 
"albendranious."  I don't know what that means but I do like the noise it makes. -- Q. 
Loner

Jorja -- We are having very, very, very bad hair days over here. -- The Eastern Horde    

Blunt Trauma -- Pah.  You gave me SUCH a headache, and you bent some of my flight 
feathers. -- Meadowlark
P.S.  Still, four skills and a rating, that's worth a loss.

Quiet Loner -- I bet you're one of those people who sneaks around splitting stones.  
Annoying behavior, because I like my stones intact, in very large chunks.  Little 
bitty chips of stone?  No.  Not for my work. -- Stone Cutter, brooding darkly

Hound Archon -- Bad Dog! -- Han Kang
P.S.  Or from the other point of view, Good Dog!  (sigh)  It's the pits being fair-
minded.

Jina tyl Ray -- Yes, yes, I see the writing on the wall, you know.  We're headed for 
an oh-fer turn, and I haven't even looked at the last fight.  It's a psychic flash. -- 
Chi Ho

Sayk -- Yep, you put the cherry on top.  I suppose I could call it good work, but they 
don't let me bet against my own team, so even when I saw it coming, there was nothing 
I could do.  Oh, well.  Buy me a drink? -- Rumbler

Our congratulations to Horrifying Attack and Preacher Rowe. -- Jorja and the Sand 
Dancers
