*I'M* the Duelmaster??  Even cooler....

Burnt Ocher

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  What's a move up by 3 you ask?  (alright, 
maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to PARTY ANIMALS.  Good 
things come to those who fight well, as MORE NEW TEAMS 2 can attest, moving up by 1.  
Practice pays for TIGER WOODS, who pummelled BELISS DON, to pocket 13 points.  Win 
some, lose some.  Speaking of which, BUTTERFLY was winsome, after beating JAD LADRUE 
and seeing him lose 11 points.  HOFFA found out that KALTOS isn't a democracy.  
You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in KALTOS is 
using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys 
in THE DARK TEMPLE are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  
As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of CRAYOLA KILLERS, so did that 
sorry team shy from THE DARK TEMPLE If challenges were horses, BELISS DON could open 
up a fast food joint!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Hey DAPHNE'S LADIES!  
Is there some deep dark, unmentionable secret as to why BAT GIRL has been sent to the 
Dark Arena?   5-2-0 isn't so shabby!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes 
for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant 
prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Can anything 
compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for KALTOS?  On that giddy note I take 
my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Adela -- Are you running both Middle Way and Johns??  Just wondering. -- Stik and
Crayola Killers

The Kung-Fu Master kicked the sword out of my hand and forced me to fight with my
fists, though that is NOT my "thing."  He didn't even give me a chance to strike him
in the arm with my parry. -- Faron Harn
P.S.  I don't see why the audience was thrilled.  They missed seeing some real
artistry with a sword.

THAT is a "dangerous" criminal?  Oh, my. -- Folie Hana

I suppose the Fratsfa Slave MIGHT have been dangerous...if he hadn't been in chains.
And I do NOT mean chain-MAIL, either. -- Derbie Foyle

Some thief!  He could even steal the initiative. -- Jad Ladrue

Beer Gyser -- I hope you will explain to Adela that it was NOT my fault that I posted
the only loss.  I didn't expect to fight a REAL warrior; I was all set for a standby.
-- Beliss Don
P.S.  You were impressive out there.

10 May 2003
To All -- Fellow managers, I humbly request your help.  My team (Ex Oblivione) was
started in Monuntial (DM 34) back in '92.  They were active for seven months.  I have
lost all early traces of them.  If any of you can help with copies of relevant
newsletters or, if you fought one of my warriors, copies of the fights, I would
greatly appreciate it.  I only have one of my original warriors left from the early
team now active in DM 60.  You can diplo me with any info here in the wonderful city
of Aradi.  Thank you in advance. -- Enigma, manager Ex Oblivione

Assurnasirbanipal invites all to use his computerized warrior management tool.  The
program is the most extensive management tool ever created.  It was meant to run on a
PALM OS PDA, but will run (emulated) on a PC or MAC.  You can get this program on the
web at: http://www.geocities.com/assurnasir

27 May 2003
A note to everyone regarding manager names and manager lists -- If you're running a
team incognito, all you have to do is let me know and I won't put your name on any
manager lists.  It has seemed though, that more people want their names listed, even
if they do not announce themselves, than the other way around.  Also, I do maintain
the list more or less by hand and errors do creep in.  You have but to say I've made
an error and no one will be the wiser (except thee and me, of course). -- The Saint,
keeper of lists
