                             Notes from the arena champ.

     A vicious slash would be an apropos phrase to describe the wound Vicious Slash 
left on my face last turn.  My orcan pride, anger, and aggression forced me to 
retaliate in kind a moment later, and likewise, Mr. Slash now has a similar scar 
adorning his left cheek. 
     The fans loved it, of course, the bloodthirsty jackals.  It will take a while for 
the scars on our faces to mend, no doubt, not in time for this turn, where it's likely 
we'll meet again.  I hear the fans are all ready eagerly clamoring for tickets to the 
spectacle.  Let them clamor like dogs for tickets, for dogs are what they are.  And 
they say gladiators are animals.  Bah!  The true animals are outside the ring. 

                                          -- Jina tyl Ray
                                             Champion of Jade Mountain: 589, 593  

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly JADE MOUNTAIN games.  Former top team SWORD FOR HIRE 
was unseated this week as SAND DANCERS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-2-0 record for the round.  CHI HO caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested QUIET LONER and was awarded 26 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, CHI HO put down QUIET LONER, 
causing him to lose 26 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has 
JINA TYL RAY in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week she's 
proven hers combat skill yet again.  Informants "close" to the city champion have 
told me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  Loose talk at the arena has 
reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after QUIET 
LONER.  Watch your back!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  My condolences to SWORD FOR HIRE for 
their loss of a very promising warrior, NEO NOIR.  NEO NOIR went to doom before the 
arms of STONEFACE MIKARN, a warrior of JADE MOUNTAIN.  Some say a warrior is judged 
by the way he bears arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on 
the belt!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in JADE MOUNTAIN.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Sadly warriors, now longer 
can I keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  
Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a 
different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes
