                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of RODEKI.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Nothing is certain in 
RODEKI, with changing loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top 
team--COLOR ME SUAVE.  COLOR ME SUAVE had cause to celebrate, after THUMBSY got 13 
points by beating MORDANT DESERTER.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, 
CONVICTED ASSASSIN was winsome, after beating LUCKY LOUISE and seeing her lose 12 
points.  Out with the old, in with the new.  Enter VENOMOUS CONCUBINE, handily 
defeating LICKY LOUSE.  With 89 points, BALDING GRAY of COLOR ME SUAVE takes the 
position of RODEKI's Duelmaster.  Word has it one team in RODEKI is using psychics to 
predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of COLOR ME SUAVE, alone and unchallenged.  The 
warriors of COLOR ME SUAVE found their efforts at combat frustrated as BIG LAKE 
CREEPERS apparently had more important things to do than fight.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  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 the seasons change, and the creatures of the 
wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid RODEKI farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

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. 

                        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
