                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
JADE MOUNTAIN brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, SAND DANCERS, 
since SWORD FOR HIRE took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see LEWELLYN LLAMA win a fight and gain 16 
points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, HOTDOG beat TOM TAPIR and TOM TAPIR lost 8 points.  
You're breakin' my heart.  Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, 
STRAWBERRY JHANS has lost the Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier! 
And it's out with the old, in with the new, as JINA TYL RAY takes the Title and last 
week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  I'm not in a very good mood 
today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, JADE 
MOUNTAIN?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  JADE 
MOUNTAIN, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  CRITICALS the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like SWORD FOR HIRE 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.  RUMBLER was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the 
DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  And what a stunning loss we have here, 
boys and girls, VICIOUS SLASH of CRITICALS has added the final loss to his 11-11-2.  
Tee hee!  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up with 
you sooner that later?   
     What does the JADE MOUNTAIN arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of JADE MOUNTAIN.  I feel much better now.  I see the 
crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens
