                             Notes from the arena champ.

     My time in Jade Mountain has come to an end.  I'm pleased to retire as world 
champion.  Now some long, complex, math-heavy tournament will commence to crown a new 
champion.  Good luck to my teammate in that endeavor, the introvert Quiet Loner, but 
he knows, as the rest of you do, that had we met, or had I met any of you, I would 
have come out victorious. 
     I was taught swordplay in the Garden of Woe by the ancient, one-eyed master of 
the orcan longsword, Comma Cazi.  It is to it--for Comma Cazi is neither a he nor a 
she--that I own my only debt of gratitude, not some Angus McSweords or whatever he's 
calling himself.  It comes, then, as no surprise that the longsword is my favorite 
weapon, even though that bumbler, Angus, insisted I use other weapons at times. 
     Goodbye Jade Mountain.  It was an honor for you to see me utilize my skills on 
the sands.  I enjoyed your applause, as you enjoyed my skill. 

                                     -- Jina tyl Ray,
                                        Champion of the World Turns 589, 593, 594, 596

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  SWORD FOR HIRE had cause to celebrate, after 
BLACK ICE got 17 points by beating TO-FU BACKSTABBER.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking 
of which, GOTHIC was winsome, after beating RUMBLER and seeing him lose 14 points.  
Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by CHI HO, of SAND DANCERS, 
who despite a 16-26-1 couldn't overcome JADE MOUNTAIN's Number 1.  Word has it one 
team in JADE MOUNTAIN is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to 
death.  I'll bet it works.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen 
into an unconscious stupor.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed 
simile, I now bid JADE MOUNTAIN farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Chi Ho -- Like my manager said a few turns ago, you guys (Sand Dancers) do not go down 
easy. That was a well met and honorable duel. Now, if you'll excuse me, my fighting 
days are done. -- Jina tyl Ray

Chi Ho -- Methinks someone is trying to impersonate me in the ads, and methinks that 
someone is you. Signing my name to a post to ... me?! Now that's what I call a double 
entendre. -- Quiet Loner

Lady Chao -- That was a fantastic fight. We gave 'em their money's worth. (Now, I must 
make my tag line...) And yet another foe has come to know the dangers of the unseen, 
the unknown, the perils of ... --- Black Ice

Zelban Swordbiter -- I was pleased to introduce you to my sword, so that you could 
take a bite out of it. It didn't look like the taste appealed to you or your teeth, my 
friend. Heh, heh, heh. Cursed be thy family and thy guildhouse. -- Gothic 

Quiet Loner -- I don't see how.  I mean, if you're a loner, why are you facing ANYONE 
in your bathtub? -- Rumbler

Full Force -- Euwh, you just blew right through me. -- Han Ki

Jina tyl Ray -- But I do admire your frontage. -- Chi Ho

Black Ice -- Ugh, had some of that today.  Not good.  Carriages spinning down the 
street. -- Lady Chao

Tom Tapir -- (snickering rudely)  You seem kinda small for your size. -- Hotdog

Our congratulations to Jina tyl Ray. -- Jorja and the Sand Dancers

And a cheer for Samurai, tourney victor. -- Jorja and company once again
