                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
XOCHITHLAN brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 3-1-0 is 
nice, but don't get cocky, BASH BROS BABY, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates 
are proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see BUTTERFLY win a fight and 
gain 17 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, DAISY beat CHAOS 101 and CHAOS 101 lost 5 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Due to absence, and inability to defend the 
throne, ULRIK VENN has lost the Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm 
earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as CWM takes the Title and last 
week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Warty Toad, humph!  I've 
tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From XOCHITHLAN's 
trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  
KOKABIEL was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM 
insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the XOCHITHLAN arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste 
this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide

Folks, I am leaving Duel II for personal reasons.  I have no idea whether I may 
return, but don't count on it.  I will remain active in Lapur (29) and Jade Mountain 
(75), and that's it.  I have enjoyed knowing you.  Fare you well. -- Jorja

All -- In order of perceived deadliness we are Butterfly, CWM, Daisy, Pond and Swan.  
We generally do NOT want kills, but if you do not protect your vitals that may be 
where we are attacking.

An Article in DM 93 newsletter, claims that down-challenging is an accepted tactic 
when desired by any manager of DM 39.  Yet we have decided that we will likely not 
DOWN challenge, unless we are DOWN challenged (unless bloodfeuding).

If a warrior kills one of ours, we may exploit him.  As the Red Book puts it, an 
initiate could find himself fighting the Duelmaster. -- Parkland
