                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

     "Tis a sad thing, the fading of the year."  Wellondry, the Osksi Noble, sighed
and shook his head.
     "Aye."  Moro Salleshi, the Ambitious Guard, leaned against the railing beside
his teammate and looked out across the Bight of Balo.  "A swamp should not be
deciduous," he said.  There was a splash, then a series of lesser splashes.  Finally
a shocking pink bird of improbable outline rose from the reeds on the far side of the
bight, beating the air with heavy strokes and building up speed.  "That may be the
last flamingo of the year," he noted as it circled and then headed southward.  "Where
do they go?"
     Wellondry shrugged.  "Ask Debby Tonte.  I've always thought there was a lot of
flamingo in that girl."
     "She's not pink."
     Wellondry shrugged again.  "There's a lot of pink in her character," he said.
An especially loud guffaw drew his attention, and he looked over his shoulder.  The
double doors of the Tinker's Arms stood open onto this terrace over the water, and
provided a good view of the interior.  A dwarf sat on the bar, a mug in each hand,
and quaffed from them in alternation, roaring with laughter and spraying those
nearest him with ale.  The Osksian's lip curled.
     "Let him laugh," Salleshi said.  "Being resurrected's no picnic, even for a
     "He should have been replaced, not resurrected," Wellondry muttered.  "A waste
of magic, when we have so many potential Userous Merchants around."
     "Nah, who cares?  I'll tell you what's a waste of magic," the Guard said.  "Red
Barkol.  If the Commission says we have to run a Dangerous Criminal who's six feet
two, then what I say is, let us find someone who's six feet two and a criminal,
rather than taking the most dangerous man around and using magic to make HIM that
tall.  It's ridiculous to have a six-foot dwarf.  Probably illegal."
     "There's no law about dwarven heights."
     "Natural law."
     "Not enforceable."
     "Just wait.  Nature'll GET him sooner or later.  Altitude sickness, because his
brain's too high.  Or he'll go home to visit kin and smash his skull on a tunnel,
     "Does Barkol have kin?  It beggars the imagination.  More Barkols...."
     "But shorter."
     "At least Sedmon Var isn't six feet tall," Wellondry said, nodding toward the
drunken dwarf.
     "Even five nine is too tall for a dwarf.  We should do something about this."
     Wellondry moved a couple of feet farther away from Salleshi.  "Such as what?"
     "How about...a dwarf door at the arena, with a horizontal blade at, hmm, about
five foot four?  Anyone taller either admits not being a dwarf or gets trimmed down
to size."  Salleshi nodded.  "Yeah.  And another dwarf door in the Tinker's Arms,

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  THE GOLDEN FISH had cause to celebrate, after MARI COY got 22 points by 
beating VENOMOUS CONCUBINE.  MELLISANDE certainly had a baffled expression on hers 
face, after losing to THE SHOCKER and losing 9 points in the process!  Those who 
hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by MELLITA, of THE GOLDEN FISH, who 
despite a 10-9-1 couldn't overcome NIANIA's Number 1.  Word has it one team in NIANIA 
is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.  
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and MARI 
COY is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't THE GOLDEN FISH proud!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  The audience gave a 
nice round of rasberries to MELLITA of THE GOLDEN FISH, for expiring in such an 
ungraceful fashion.  10-9-1, indeed!  A moment of silence for MELLITA, who died an 
untimely death at the hands of SCARDY CAT.  In the spirit of revenge, we call upon 
THE GOLDEN FISH to act!  Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed 
body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in NIANIA would I avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in NIANIA is the highlight of my life.  As if buffeted 
by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  Can 
anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for NIANIA?  On that giddy 
note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Scardy Cat -- Oh, I couldn't POSSIBLY be a Duel2Dudette.  No, I couldn't.  I wouldn't
be able to think of anything to say. -- Mellita

The Kung-Fu Master punched me on the elbow.  That seems...odd.  Sure, he was annoyed
when I struck him on the arm with my parry, but that's what happens when you don't
wear armor or carry weapons.  That's HIS fault.  There was no reason for him to do
all the REALLY RUDE things he did between then and hitting me on the elbow.  I think
he's a sadist. -- Golden Shark

Did the Userous Merchant think I would FORGET how he THREATENED me last time?  Not a
bit of it! -- Mellisande, still beating up userers

The Fratsfa Slave is actually rather pitiful. -- Mari Coy

The Ambitious Guard isn't "pitiful."  He's a JOKE. -- Spike McGold

5 November 2005
It is with a proud heart that I announce the newest member of the Desolate Empire
alliance.  Dok Sik will be known from here forth as Dark Knight Dok Sik, of the
Desolate Empire.  May he be blessed with victory and courage.  May his enemies' blood
flow freely! -- The Dark Knights Wasby and Toker
