                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly CLIFFHOME games.  THE DEALER caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and was awarded 
21 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, WEBBED FLOYD put 
down COCAINE KATY, causing him to lose 11 points of recognition in the process.  This 
time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail CAMPY DIGIT, Duelmaster of 
CLIFFHOME!  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their 
position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city CLIFFHOME.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  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 CLIFFHOME.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires 
of a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen 
is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

From:       The Office of Accurate Census Reporting, Gladiatorial Commission
To:         All Managers

In the interest of preserving our natural resources and preventing managerial writer's 
cramp, the census form has been eliminated, effective immediately.  Managers may 
register their warriors' races and/or favorite sayings by simply writing them on a 
separate piece of paper and submitting them to the Commission.  Each warrior may have 
up to 15 favorite sayings.  Each saying must be categorized Jeer, Gloat, Boredom, Ouch, 
Victory and may be up to 70 characters long.  For any questions, please contact the 
Gladiatorial Commission. 

ATTENTION:  Have you or a loved one has been diagnosed with the heartbreak of 
Muffintheliomariasis?  You may be entitled to financial compensation!  
Muffintheliomariasis is a common nervous system disorder linked to the destruction of 
self-worth and confidence due to the regular down-challenging of The Muffin Man.  
Symptoms and side effects include involuntary twitching, irritable bowels, sweating, 
abdominal pain, headache, gender impermanence, acute hygienic arrest, nausea and 
death.  These side effects typically occur after his down-challenging warrior has 
whomped up on you, your warrior or a loved one.  Are you at the end of your rope?  
There's hope!  Send a missive to the legal advocate offices of Dewey, Cheatham and 
Howe, PLLLG, Jasper Gulch, for a free information and financial packet.  Don't wait, 
act now.  Time is limited!  Put yourself on a better path for tomorrow!*

*Reading of this advertisement does not constitute and advocate-client relationship 
between Dewey, Cheatham and Howe, PLLLG, and the reader.  Such a relationship may only 
be established via a mutual agreement that has been read and signed by the client. 
Determining whether legal assistance is needed and choosing a provider for legal 
advocacy are serious matters, and should not be done on the basis of advertisements 
alone.  A face-to-face meeting between legal advocate and a potential client is 
strongly advised.  A warranty of any kind is neither expressed nor implied with regard

                        TEAM AND CHARACTER MAINTENANCE SERVICE

     As a service to all managers, we offer team and character maintenance.  This 
option allows you to make sure your team or selected warriors will never miss a turn!

     Team Maintenance:  This will cause all warriors on that team to fight every 
     turn; if it's an AD arena, any new warriors who arrive on that team will 
     fight the turn they arrive.  In A.D. or in transfer arenas where you have 
     multiple teams, each team will need to separately be on Team Maintenance.  
     (The only exception is new warriors; they will not fight until they have had 
     their initial strategy input.)  

     Character Maintenance:  This will cause only that warrior to fight every 
     turn.  If the character graduates or changes arenas, he/she/it will stay on 
     Character Maintenance.

     In either case, you may submit strategy sheets for your warriors each turn, if 
you wish.  The Team/Character Maintenance will make sure your warriors fight each 
turn, and they will always use their most recently entered strategy.
     Remember that challenges, avoids, and challenge/if challenged strategies will not 
carry through from turn to turn.  These sections are only used on the turn they are 
entered.  In order to continually challenge or avoid you will need to submit a 
strategy sheet each time. 
     One other thing to remember about maintenance:  Maintenance is not something 
that you write on your turnsheet (like in demo tourneys).  In order to add or remove 
maintenance for a team or warrior, you must send a note to Customer Service.  If you 
just write things like this on your strategy sheet, they may or may not get done.  
Likewise, don't write it on your personal ads.  Please, please, please put it on a 
separate piece of paper with "Customer Service" written on the top.  If you don't, 
well, you can imagine.
     Thanks for your time.  Good luck in Duelmasters! -- Green Eyes
