                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  THE SHALLOWSHIP had cause to celebrate, after SCANDALF got 17 points by 
beating VETERAN MERCENARY.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and 
practice more, after losing 3 points to BORE-O-ME.  (Discrete enough, HOWARD?) 
LEGALASS successfully staved off a grab for the roses by M. CHARDINEE of JHELUM.  
Does JHELUM have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  Word has it one team in 
JHELUM is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     So much to report, so little time!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in JHELUM is the highlight of my life.  As if buffeted 
by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  Do not 
despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

                                     PERSONAL ADS

Hey Dogs, let's take a walk and find a city with a few more pubs--this place is
deserted and I'm gettin' thirsty!  Oh and Forkball, sorry about the snail mail
problem, let's meet up and discuss it over a melee next time you're in town.

Bore-O-Me -- Ouch, you really do "bore in," don't you?  I can't say that I enjoyed
the experience. -- Jimmy Custer

Aragant -- You do make a good target dummy.  Thanks.  I needed the workout. -- Howard

Gimlet -- Can I have that with lime in it?  If there's no lime, then I don't want it.
-- Hannibal
P.S.  And I did NOT need two copies of that fight.  Once was depressing enough.

Puy -- Hmm, it might be that your shorter name gives you an edge in initiative and
decisiveness, makes you faster off the mark.  Or then again, it might be that you're
an attractive little female golem, and I just don't feel that I can properly strike
you. -- Epimonidas
P.S.  Although you had no problem properly striking me.  In fact, I have seldom been
struck so properly!

Catnipit -- Dognabit! -- Challon
P.S.  I couldn't resist that.

A few notes about e-mailed personals:

You may submit personal ads, columns, spotlights, etc. electronically, either via e-
mail to ads at reality dot com (which doesn't need any more spam, thank you) or on
the web at http://www.reality.com/duel2/modules.php?name=Ads.  When you submit
something, you should get back a receipt from HAL at RSI.  If you do NOT get a
receipt, your ads may have gone astray (not all e-mail makes it to its destination
any more than all snail mail does).  If you DO get a receipt, it should, in the body
of the message, tell you what arena your stuff was filed in.  Check your receipt to
make sure your submission made it to the intended destination.  Also check to see
that everything you sent made it to the same place.  Sometimes HAL, who is rather
simple-minded in some ways, will send half your stuff to another arena if the name
or number of that arena shows up at the beginning of a line.  So if the word Ti
appears at the beginning of a line halfway through your ads, all the ads after that
may end up in Ti, which is closed and doesn't need ads.  As a side note, sometimes
things move slowly, so don't wait until the last minute to send your ads and all.
If they get held up along the way, they may not show up until next turn.  Happy
writing! -- Ed.

We of the Desolate Empire Alliance want to welcome two managers to our fold.  Kon of
the Empire Rising, and Osiris!  May they be blessed with the blood of their enemies,
and give no quarter in War! -- Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire

11 April 2006
To all those lookin' for some easy pickins:  I, Elfwine, manager of The Shallowship,
the most feared team in all of Jhelum, invite all who seek wide open spaces for pubs
and other such establishments of limited debauchery, to visit this deserted city and
help me clear up some of the dust.  I'm just about ready to have my guys face off
against each other to get some new action.  Guess I'd better join a tournament or
something...hmmmm, there's a thought.
