                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail KALTOS!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as LONG SWORD CLUB is pushed 
out of top team by TECHNOLOGY, who came from 2nd with a 3-0-0 this turn.  And let's 
see, JUST LOSIN fought QUARTUS and gained 21 points and contributed to THE MIDDLE WAY 
5's 2-3-0.  SECUNDUS has lost to MAURINA OBEL, falling 9 points, while helping make 
LONG SWORD CLUB a 0-5-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, 
and MECHANON remains KALTOS' top warrior for another turn.  Can someone confirm a 
rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The 
Victory Tavern until they win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the LONG SWORD CLUB stable was the most 
avoided team this turn.  Come on KALTOS, what are you afraid of?  And guess who 
avoided LONG SWORD CLUB stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was TECHNOLOGY.  
Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that GIDGET IMER from THE MIDDLE 
WAY 5 was KALTOS' most challenged warrior this turn.  SCOOTIE PUFF JR of 011510A had 
better have a good reason for challenging down 15 points in a challenge which he won. 
I thought SCOOTIE PUFF JR showed great skill and promise when he beat GIDGET IMER.  
All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or 
hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, KALTOS, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in KALTOS, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in KALTOS again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

All -- I am getting together as many Duelmaster players as possible to play in a game
of Hyborian War as a change of pace.  We already have 17 players that are interested
and we are trying to get as many as possible involved before I submit the list to
RSI.  I am collecting the names and top 3 kingdoms that the players are interested in
and submitting it myself so we can all play in the same game.  If you are interested
PM me in the DuelII Forums at Tripwire or email me at azaer123@comcast.net. --
