                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  The boys at ORCISH IDIOMS left the arena dejected, after being kicked 
out of the top spot by YAKUZA.  Good show!  X-FORCE after a sorry 2-3-0 might want to 
consider abandoning the sands and taking up singing the 'Can't fight no more' blues!  
What's a move up by 4 you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for 
celebration, according to LA PENTARCHIE.  Good things come to those who fight well, 
as SMITHSONIAN can attest, moving up by 1.  Practice pays for HOLGA KOBB, who 
pummelled SUNFIRE, to pocket 30 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, ME 
CHEAT U LOSE was winsome, after beating V.BALTIMORE-'W.BALT and seeing him lose 13 
points.  INOCHI successfully staved off a grab for the roses by HELEN OF TROY of 
SMITHSONIAN.  Does ARKERS have no one talented enough to dethrone her?  Word has it 
one team in ARKERS is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     And how sociable are ARKERS' warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like a horde of 
jackals fleeing from the lion, so did the "warriors" in ARKERS avoid SMITHSONIAN.  As 
a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of LA PENTARCHIE, so did that sorry 
team shy from SMITHSONIAN Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and DART is it 
right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't X-FORCE proud!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  HOLGA KOBB of MIDDLE 
WAY 11 spared SUNFIRE (6-5-0) from having to lose any more fights.  What's your next 
plan, X-FORCE?  Nothing is certain except death and more death in these bloody 
arenas.  SUNFIRE of X-FORCE met his fate at the hands of HOLGA KOBB.  Never one to 
advocate diplomacy and restraint, I was pleased to see ENTENTER retaliate against 
ASSASSIN NATION in bloodfeud!  Questions are being raised about the disposing of 
severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in ARKERS would I avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in ARKERS 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 ARKERS?  On that giddy 
note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

La Pentarchie -- We don't think you like us! -- Richard The Lion Hearted & Hammurabi

Inochi -- For you anything! (wink) -- Lord Protector Tom Sawyer

Aujard -- Any time, old pal, but you had better do it now! -- Tom Sawyer

Miss Took -- Aha!  Finally some CC comes my way! -- Tom Sawyer

Feordis -- Well, I said I would be back.  Right?  And I can assure you that I AM a
handful and that you will never get YOUR hands on my handful. (wink) -- Lady Macbeth

Holga -- Maybe not couth, but I laughed! -- Zippety

Assassin Nation -- Such hostility you showed me! -- Zero

Assassin Nation -- No hostility for me, but near decimation.  You guys are mean! --
Zippety

Floyd Rose -- Thank the gods for you or we would have gotten one of those "zippers".
("Ohfers") -- Mr. Zee, The Zee Man

All -- I actually think I made the duedate, so this is probably my second set. --
Blackstorm

Z-Man -- Especially for my style.  Thankz. -- Nytemair

Hammurabi -- Getting the haunted feeling?  Seeing things?  That eerie sensation is
normal.  I got a whole bag of nightmare dust. -- Nytemair

Atlas -- You still live!?!  Congratulations.  Chaos wants one shot and that shall be
all. -- Nytemair

Curator and Pentarque -- All righty then.  Just a loose little 12 turner with no
nastiness if possible.  We can start on 268 and end on 280.  If anyone wishes to join
in the fun decide at latest on 269 so I can tabulate each side correctly and give
updates every two turns (you know my mail).  THE PRIZE:  The winner shall receive a
warm fuzzy feeling, a sense of pride and bragging rights.  This is going to be fun!
-- Blackstorm

Curator -- Did you know...that you were the only manager I ever asked for help?  Now
that's good help!  Good luck. -- Blackstorm

Liam???  Where are you?  Welcome to Arkers, a fine city.  Even if we lack Shadowy
places. -- Blackstorm

Savant -- No hard feelings.  One more by Chaos Invader.  I do hope he won't kill you.
You never know. -- Blackstorm

Slugbait -- Seems I'm the only one here who's beaten you!  You are one tough manager.
A 19-0-?  Doesn't seem natural.  Good to see you back.  Good hunting. -- Blackstorm

Kik Baket -- You shouldn't watch your toes.  It's hazardous to the health. -- Chaos
Warrior

Chiana -- YEAH!!!  That was awesome!!!  Very important to have the right weapons.
Try vs. APM and APL. (oh yes!!) -- Yor Dethkall

Got Cat's Tongue -- Nice challenge.  Next time we meet I'll show you the "Dive Bomb."
-- Floyd Rose

More Moore -- Come back for more? -- Les Paul

Savant -- See you for the bloodfeuds. -- Highlander

Morgana -- Sorry, tough break.  I welcome all bloodfeuds. -- Spud

All -- I am the mgr. of the Furious Five and I will be makin' an effort ta not lose
too much in dis here arena. -- Roco

Vertigo Pirate -- "Did I miss the battle?"
Arena Attendant -- "You missed the war."

Old man, rise again, this battle started ugly for your puny warriors!  I kinda read
you were not enthusiastic about the 12 turns thing, so lets say 8 if Blackstorm
confirms his participation.  If he does not confirm, I will cancel the whole thing,
and we will fight as usual....  After these few words, the score is:
Turn 1 : Frenchies 2 -- Old man and his Z 0
If you accept the counting from turn 268, as stated in the newsletter 267.  Anyway,
see you on the sand. -- Le P.

Morg Potts -- Huh?  What line? -- Lurid

Lin Minmei -- This being one of my "youngest" teams, I really don't have a whole lot
of options to bloodfeud with.  I guess I'll have to see what Lurid can accomplish.
If not, I have one other option.  I just don't like the FE mismatch. -- Ghab/Assassin
Nation

Ententer -- Overdrive came so close to winning that one, before Lurid drove him into
the ground like a tent peg.  I'll expect a bloodfeud, unless Lurid matches up against
Lin Minmei on my bloodfeud attempt.

Chach -- My fight against you really showcased my future potential...I got cursed by
the ability to do LITTLE DAMAGE.  I am off to meet my fate by the light of the
torches.... -- Spew

All -- Goodbye, cruel world!!! -- Spew

Zippety -- Good fight! -- Decimate

Zero -- Sorry to ruin that perfect record you had started.  What alternative did I
have, though? -- Hostility

Arkers -- Hello to all.  I'll be in the arena in a turn or two.  Do tell me if there
are any rules here I may need to know of.  I hope (a funny word) to bring a little
gloom to your happy corner of the world and some friendly competition. -- Liam the
Goth, mgr. Knight Mares

Lady Macbeth -- If you're a lady, I'm the Queen of the May.  Come on, who are you
REALLY? -- Feordis Ink

Dazzler -- (smug look)  Sunglasses. -- Jernig Mars

Me Cheat U Lose -- Ah.  Is that why, eh?  I must remember to tell Leeta that, next
time she mentions my record. -- Imber Lack

Miss Matched -- Well, I might've been, but it was a pleasure to watch you move, Miss.
Any chance of a private session? -- Morg Potts

Black Wind -- Wow, black, huh?  Smog?  A really big grassfire?  What's your secret?
-- Holga Kobb

Lurid -- Well...I could probably think of SOMETHING to say, if I tried.  What's in it
for me? -- Morg Potts

Lord Protector Tom Sawyer -- You did such a good job on the fence here that the
Commission wants you to paint one on the Isle.  I'm sure you will find many people to
assist you there. -- Desthvan, arena manager

Blackstorm -- Regarding the Sisters of Smash in Morya, I will petition the Commission
staff for a copy of the census sheets, but they're seventeen hundred miles away and I
can't bring much pressure to bear.  Any chance of an email to Livia At reality dot
com? -- the Scribe

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

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.
