                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt SNOWBOUND will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as BASH BROS SPORTS is pushed out of top team by MESOPOTAMIA, who came 
from 3rd with a 2-3-1 this turn.  And let's see, THE MOUNTAIN fought ZAQAR and gained 
21 points and contributed to GOT BLOOD?'s 3-2-1.  EXTRA LONG SHIFT has lost to 
SNUFFY, falling 8 points, while helping make BASH BROS SPORTS a 1-1-0 turn.  Due to 
his absence and inability to defend the throne, COLD WEATHER has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  We should ask SNUFFY about the thrill of victory, and what being the new 
Duelmaster does for a warrior, he's now the one to ask.  By the way, was that our 
Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Victory Tavern?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  I also notice that the MESOPOTAMIA 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on SNOWBOUND, what are you afraid 
of?  And guess who avoided MESOPOTAMIA stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
BASH BROS SPORTS.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that CRUSHING 
BELIAL from MESOPOTAMIA was SNOWBOUND's most challenged warrior this turn.  In a 
brave attempt, BLOGG from OPEN SESAME challenged up 18 points to fight CRUSHING 
BELIAL from the MESOPOTAMIA stable.  BLOGG perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as 
he was beat by CRUSHING BELIAL and ended up with 71 recognition points.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  The manager of MESOPOTAMIA will not be pleased to learn that ZAQAR, 
a 5-0-1 fighter, has been killed at the hands of GOT BLOOD?'s THE MOUNTAIN.  
MESOPOTAMIA, with any luck GOT BLOOD? will successfully bloodfeud NERGAL'S FURY for 
killing such a warrior as THE HOUND.  Have a little decency, will ya?  The Victory 
Tavern declares a free round for REGULAR SEASON and all of BASH BROS SPORTS, for 
having revenged OPEN SESAME's BARKLEY for killing one of their comrades.  A brave 
warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight 
is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in SNOWBOUND and I've a long road ahead of 
me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond the

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
