                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of TRANSEL!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team DARK PANTHEON was 
unseated this week as THE LADY'S LIST moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-1-0 record for the round.  PEGASUS caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and was awarded 15 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, HAWK put down HOFFA, 
causing him to lose 1 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his absence and 
inability to defend the throne, HOBBLED has lost the title of Duelmaster.  This time 
victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail JUSTIN, Duelmaster of TRANSEL!  
Would you believe that over half of the old women in TRANSEL seem to feel that they 
could fight better than you gladiators?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city TRANSEL.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the 
miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     The girls are as pretty in TRANSEL as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed 
a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
Till next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise 
are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

                                     PERSONAL ADS

24 March 2006
A few notes about e-mailed personals:

You may submit personal ads, columns, spotlights, etc. electronically, either via e
mail 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.
