                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  SIR AGLIO?  Who?  MEGAWARRIORS is the top team 
these days, buddies!  He who laughs last didn't get the joke.  Speaking of laughing 
at jokes, observe THUNDERSTRIKERS.  Last week they got 1-4-0 to drop by 6!  Nothing 
works for a team like victory (How's that for a perceptive observation?) as 
MEGAWARRIORS can attest...  TERRAPIN STATION posted a nice gain, to come in 7th.  
Everybody loves a winner...  Practice pays for PAPPY WHAPPY, who pummelled NEVENGAR, 
to pocket 20 points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice 
more, after losing 19 points to PAPPY WHAPPY.  (Discrete enough, NEVENGAR?) The arena 
was more crowded than usual this time, as VAPID VANNA faced KOLACT's Duelmaster.  
BLING BLING successfully staved off a grab for the roses by VAPID VANNA of 
SPRINGBORN.  Does KOLACT have no one talented enough to dethrone it?  So who was the 
warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got 
a basic problem...   
     And how sociable are KOLACT's warriors?  Come, let us see.  To quell some nasty 
rumors, the guys in SIR AGLIO are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to 
avoid 'em.  The warriors of SIR AGLIO found their efforts at combat frustrated as 
THOROUGHBREDS apparently had more important things to do than fight.  Everyone is 
famous for fifteen minutes, and RIVERWIND is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  
Isn't THUNDERSTRIKERS proud!  Take heed KOLACT, of the unprincipled action of SIR 
OCCO.  By challenging XTRA HEAT, 25 points below him, SIR OCCO besmirches the noble 
art of dueling.  Warriors of KOLACT!  Do you wish your reputations tainted by the 
base challenge of SIR OCCO?  Word has it OIL CAN suffered a romantic setback.  Note 
how it challenged VULGAR, 26 points its senior.  Soopreyes, soopreyes!  OIL CAN 
emerges from the fray 2 points the richer.  Good show, OIL CAN!  THE UPRIGHT MAN 
challenged TYCHO!  Who says ALASTARIAN IDOL are just a bunch of wimps!  THE UPRIGHT 
MAN of ALASTARIAN IDOL kept his wits as he was beat by TYCHO.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Charity is unknown in KOLACT, and rightly so.  DEVIL'S ADVOCATE exacted their 
revenge against BLOODSHED.  Justice was served as OCTAVIAN fought QAEDA, AL in 
bloodfeud.  Well done, PRAETORIAN GUARD!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match 
itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in KOLACT is the highlight of my life.  More important 
duties call me.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for 
KOLACT?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Flagg -- That's what I'm talkin about!  Well done! -- Zeus

Sultan and Nick -- Thanks for the input on the scimitar. -- Zeus

Sultan -- Thanks for the reply.  I am finding old strategies that worked in the past
have less than a 50% chance of working and the strats I didn't use are working more
than I ever would have expected.  Of course I am still experimenting, and I will
share any insight I discover.  As far as gaining the Initiative....  Hmmm...I think
there is a riddle to be answered there. -- Zeus

Sultan Of Swing -- Another loss for my stable.  Tell Floyd:  I hate him! -- Sultan

Drip -- I have a little honey who works in the infirmary and she tells me that next
time, it won't say: "she nearly dies!"  But, please, go ahead and challenge again! --
Sir Plutz

Maximus Minor -- Sorry, dude.  Missed my attack location on those last 3 swings. --
Qaeda, Al

Assamite -- I have two opposing reactions to your personal:  If you're the Dark One,
I'm coming after you with swords blazing; if you're a new manager using the same team
name, Devil's Advocate, then I wish you no harm.  Which is it? -- Sultan

Sir Aglio -- !@#??!@# -- Megawarriors

Sultan -- I think you're up on me already in killing each other.  Let's see, I killed
Quicksand, you killed Dead Lee, and now Die Nasty.  YEP!  You're up!  Anyway...here
we go again! -- Matrix

Cleo -- I know, I know...I'm a punk who should've known better than to challenge you
and you are so much better than me. -- Vulgar

Sniff...Sniff...I smell cheese.  That you Cheeto?  Glad you're back.  You really
should start sending your turns in on time.  Lol! -- Matrix

Chaos -- How bout we spread the chaotic winds to the others in Kolact.  These inter-
alliance match-ups have got to stop! -- Matrix

Die Nasty -- Good bite!  ...uh, bad bite. -- Gracie

Cyclone -- One flaw'll gum up the works every time.  It's the responses what divvy-up
my opponents. -- Gracie

Pappy Whappy -- We got us out of that one, didn't I?  It's tough being first outten
the gates, working in the light of dawn, n' all. -- Vapid Vanna
P.S.  Outten?!? ...sheesh, I've been talking to Gracie too long, her Gracie-speak is
getting to me.

Example of a "permanent  effect" This prize allows a warrior to gain a favorite
weapon, rhythm, or tactics that he could not naturally get.  All of these prizes
allow the creation of "freak" warriors.  A freak is a warrior that could not
naturally exist.  An example would be a wall of steel fighter with very high/very
high for a favorite rhythm, or a lunger getting a scimitar favorite (although there
are a few running that got this favorite naturally in the old days).  I took this
from a "prize" article...thought you all might want to see it. -- Matrix

Vulgar -- Naturally!  I am strongly anti-vulgarity, you see.  It's my background.  I
stand for the finer things. -- Cleo
P.S.  Although I also sit for them, or whatever it takes to get 'em.

Sir Pent -- Cleo FORCED me to match against you, so SHE wouldn't.  She's got some
kind of phobia. -- Tycho

Gogo Patrol -- Yes, indeed.  Go!  The farther and faster, the better suited I will
be. -- Lunelle

Stormblade -- Are YOU responsible for the rain we had today? -- Bailey O'Bead

Longfellow -- Shouldn't you be taller? -- Trojan Roc

Still -- Favorites don't change, worse luck. -- Nick

Floyd -- If you think for one minute I'm gonna let you get by without a Duelmaster's
Column, you're sadly mistaken!  You owe it to your loyal subjects to address us, even
if it is only to let us know how pathetic and unworthy we are.  I hope Bling Bling
dies on his last turn before becoming immortal! -- Sultan

Matrix -- Sorry 'bout Die Nasty.  My overgrown oafs like Sir Plutz can't control
themselves. -- Sultan
P.S.  That was a kill in my desperation strategy, running defensive with a 5 KD.  Go
figure.

Praetorian Guard -- That goes for Qaeda, Al too, I see.  In French, they say:
"grand, fort, lourd et bete" which means "big, strong, heavy and stupid."  That's
Qaeda, for ya.  Sorry 'bout that, one turn late. -- Sultan

The Unknown LU -- If you keep losing to ABs, on your challenges no less, you're gonna
earn your name! -- Sir Occo

Tycho -- That's winding myself around a victim, I'd say. -- Sir Pent

Eyelash Viper -- I bow to my better. -- Sir Ingomyelic

Ojo Tango -- Good challenge.  With those learns, perhaps some day I'll be in a
position to return the favor. -- Quietus

Still -- Sorry, but I don't subscribe to either theory about a warrior's favorite
weapon or rhythm.  I believe it's all preordained, and random at that. -- Sultan

25 February 2004
Readers, and especially those who volunteered warriors -- My apologies for the sudden
lack of episodes.  I've been sick, but expect to be back at the keyboard soon. -- the

                   MONGO'S MARDI GRAS MADNESS DUELMASTERS AUCTION

     Mongo, aka Matt McIntosh and ex-Warden of the Dark Circle, is auctioning off his
entire collection of Duelmasters warriors and stables.  Don't miss out on this chance
to own some fantastic warriors!  There are ADM warriors available in every class from
Primus to Freshmen, as well as over a dozen Basic stables.
     Does a Slasher with +4 attack, +4 decisiveness, +3 initiative and +2 riposte
sound good?  How about a Lunger who received the benefit of a TC prize, has TVed
three times after graduating--and still hasn't maxed out his skills!?  How about a
Striker in the Freshmen class who has decisiveness for a favorite learn and the MAUL
for a favorite weapon!?
     Or perhaps you prefer playing in Basic.  Then how does a stable with four Adept
class warriors who have a combined record of 41-19-9 sound?  Or maybe a stable with
three 21-Will warriors?  Or perhaps a stable with four Initiates and a Rookie who
have a combined record of 23-6-1?
     The quality of the lots is excellent.  All you need to view and bid on the lots
is go to:
          http://members.aol.com/jvmerlino/mardigras.html
     If you want to be on the mailing list to receive regular updates on the auction,
just send an e-mail to JVMerlino@aol.com. Merlin, aka John Merlino and also an ex-
Warden of the Dark Circle, will be running this auction for me.  I just moved to New
Orleans and am likely currently stumbling around the French Quarter...because it's
Mardi Gras!  So I have named my auction in honor of this occasion.
     The auction will start on Saturday, March 13th, 2004, and will continue for
several weeks.  But you should get your bids in early if you want your best chance at
owning any of these fantastic warriors and stables.
     Many thanks to all for your interest and your bids,

Mongo

Style Masters Symposium
Hosted by Hammer

     The years have slipped by and many DM Managers have come and gone since the last
Hammer's Handbook was compiled and printed.
     There is now a stirring within me to begin writing and editing yet another
Handbook with a distribution date sometime in 2005.
     This Handbook will be made available via Email with a possibility of burning the
info to a CD for distribution.
     Special arrangements will be made to provide the information via printed page to
those contributors who are serving sentences behind bars.
     The working title of this new Handbook is "Style Masters Symposium Hosted by
Hammer".
     Distribution of this Handbook is projected to be MAINLY for those DM Managers
who contribute information/articles to Hammer by June 2004.
     Informative and entertaining articles should focus on insights regarding Any or
All 10 Style Masters for both the Basic and ADM arenas as well as Tourney
competition.
     Articles focusing on Weapons/Armor are also encouraged for inclusion.
     Whether you are a Newbie Manager without a clue or a Jaded Veteran; everyone has
discovered something about this gaming experience that is both Insightful and
Entertaining.
     Email Your Articles to HammerDM@fastermail.com or send them via Diplo to either
Flower Hammerz (372) in DM 28 or Casino Hammerz (576) in DM 33.
     Length and Content of the Style Masters Symposium Hosted by Hammer will be
Determined by the Quality and Quantity of Contributors Combined with the Literary
Efforts of Hammer who is currently overseas for an indefinite period of time.
     Articles Contributed for this Project should be of Sufficient Length and Content
to Warrant being Included to Receive the Finished Document when Hammer has completed
this literary work to His satisfaction.
     Managers contributing articles are also requested to include a DM Bio of
Themselves along with any Notable Successes and/or Failures during Their DM Career in
Basic, ADM and/or Tourney Play.
     A listing of Active Stables would also be Helpful for Anyone Seeking to Reply to
Contributors via Diplo, Email or Snailmail.
     May Your Blades Be Sharp And Your Wits Sharper!

St. Valentine's Day Massacre Update

     We are pleased to announce that the kLk sponsored St. Valentine's Day Massacre
kill contest in DM 36 is off to a great start.  We are also pleased to announce that
in addition to the 10 team rollups we are also able to offer the renaming of a dark
arena warrior as a prize to the manager with the most kills.  The contest is only 2
turns old and is still wide open.  There are currently 5 managers tied with one kill
each.  Anything can still happen so hurry up and get into the arena.
     On a personal note, no other alliances have entered the arena in force to
challenge the kLk dominance.  We were expecting The Firm to put up a fight for their
supposed home arena.  But, they were a no show.  Guess they proved what they are
really made of.  *evil grin*
     Perhaps another alliance would like to step in to give us a challenge.  We are
throwing down the gauntlet.  Perhaps the Chaos Inc. boys I keep hearing about would
like to step in and challenge the kLk for arena dominance.  If you don't show up,
Chaos, don't feel bad.  FAR better managers than you have been invited into Jhans but
have chosen to pass on the offer.
     So if you consider yourself worthy to compete, like fierce competition, and
enjoy arenas where the personals are as fierce as the fighting, come visit JHANS DM
36.  We're already planning our next contest, "Capture the Flag," and have a
storyline being actively worked on in the arena.  Whatever you like about DM you can
find it in JHANS.
