                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail JADE MOUNTAIN!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  And let's see, SAYK fought VICIOUS SLASH and gained 25 points and 
contributed to WRATHMEN's 1-2-0.  VICIOUS SLASH has lost to SAYK, falling 22 points, 
while helping make CRITICALS a 2-1-0 turn.  Well done, JADE MOUNTAIN, the Duelmaster 
was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Perhaps MIGHTY ASSAULT is not as thrilled, 
being challenged 2 times.  K.O. challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, 
attempting to dethrone CRITICALS' warrior.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster 
have failed, and MIGHTY ASSAULT remains JADE MOUNTAIN's top warrior for another turn. 
Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters 
do dishes at The Green Axe until they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  I also notice that the APOKOLIPS 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on JADE MOUNTAIN, what are you 
afraid of?  And guess who avoided APOKOLIPS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it 
was SWORD FOR HIRE.  Anyone surprised?   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  A farewell moment, if you please, 
BLUNT TRAUMA of SWORD FOR HIRE has been sent to the Dark Arena, and was carried out 
on his shield.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover 
or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, JADE MOUNTAIN, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet 
again, keep your swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and 
my pen sets to paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Rumbler -- Rumblin', bumblin', stumblin', but I need more of those skills.  Thank you. 
-- Jina tyl Ray

J.M. -- High, Low, Large Shield, Decisiveness. With my purely pedestrian record, I'm 
off to join Preacher Rowe in retirement, along with Wing Chun and Henry Drago, if 
anyone remembers that far back. Unlike the latter two, I wouldn't stand a chance in 
the advanced game. Off to the Dark Arena. Adios amigos. -- Blunt Trauma

Han Kang -- Why not try out a completely new strategy?  Yikes. That was close. -- K.O. 

Freddie Mercury -- I would make some clever quip like, "Another one bites the dust" 
but I won't. -- Black Ice

Barrels -- ... -- Quiet Loner

Possibly too late for turn 585, I forgot--

K.O. -- As long as I'm alive and in the Challenger Champs, I don't care. This is the 
pay-off. -- Han Kang

Lady Smoke -- Silly wench.  To have FUN in your life, you have to get out in the open 
and sing. -- Meadowlark

Jina tyl Ray -- You're a shapely little wench, I'll say that for you. The orcs always 
are, of course. -- Rumbler

Ah, standbys.  They get so forceful, sometimes. -- Chi Ho

Ziggy Stardust -- I don't mind if Space ROCKS, so long as it doesn't ROLL, you know? 
-- Lady Chao
P.S.  I knew someone who was rolled on by Space.  He died.
P.P.S.  And I'll thank my teammate not to go making comments about female orcs, too.

Our congratulations to Blunt Trauma. -- Jorja and the Sand Dancers
