                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  JADE MOUNTAIN needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for 
BONECRUSHER?  APOKOLIPS' proud of him after beating TALK-TO-DEATH and getting 15 
points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  MEADOWLARK's match with LADY SMOKE cost her a 
loss of 1 points!  What a putz!  MIGHTY ASSAULT fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then 
quits fighting and loses the title.  No one said he was a genius...  Was that a tear 
I saw in ENCANTADORA's eye, as she took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't VICIOUS 
SLASH fit to be tied!  Who was the wiseguy that said JADE MOUNTAIN's Duelmaster was 
paying for drinks at The Green Axe?  Don't look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All JADE MOUNTAIN ever talks about is 
fighting!  Me, I'm more laid back.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  
I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

All that I said last turn about my favorite rhythm and weapon ... yeah, 
scratch that.  Did not see that coming at all.  Condolences, team Apokolips.  
I don't know what came over me.  Literally. -- K.O. 

Jorja -- Thanks. -- K.O. 

Lady Chao -- I have a lot of work to do. -- Black Ice

Meadowlark -- I think I'm liking that weapon.  Further tests ahead, mayhaps. 
-- Jina tyl Ray

Cronus -- One and done, as they say. I won't be back. -- R. Assassin

And with the graduation of K.O., SfH's "old guard" have all left for various 
points of retirement.  Raw, young talent will begin to trickle into our ranks, 
if I find enough qualified applicants.  The team will get worse before it gets 
better, but hopefully soon, we'll be back to fielding a competitive team. -- 
Angus McSweords, mgr. Sword for Hire

Apokolips -- Well, I had a nice run wtih one of the greatest teams in Lirith 
Kai.  I will miss being a warrior.  Fare ye well Scorpio and Jade Mtn. -- 
Ghost of Kara

Today, we of the Apolalips mourn the loss of a seasoned warrior.  We will miss 
you Kara. -- Scorpio *knocking back a shot of bourbon*

Sword for Hire -- Let the battling begin. -- Scorpio

Black Ice -- I just scrubbed you white. -- Lady Chao

Jina tyl Ray -- You seem to be anti-songbird.  But then, you're an orc.  Not 
in tune with the finer things in life. -- Meadowlark

Encantadora -- You just enchanted me, and not in a good way.  Damn. -- Rumbler

Vicious Slash -- I dreamed someone killed you.  I was wrong. -- Chi Ho

Eddie Gordo -- You hate me, don't you?  You're out to GET me. -- Han Ki
