                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in KOLACT this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the difference, as 
BACON MAKIN' is pushed out of top team by THE MOONDOGS, who came from 2nd with a 
5-0-0 this turn.  The THE MOONDOGS guild has had a 5-0-0 turn and deserves to be 
watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's 
see, CAPRICA fought WILD THINGS and gained 21 points and contributed to ABOMINATION's 
2-2-0.  WILD THINGS has lost to CAPRICA, falling 17 points, while helping make BACON 
MAKIN' a 2-3-0 turn.  Well done, KOLACT, the Duelmaster was this turn's most 
challenged warrior.  Perhaps FLATLINERS is not as thrilled, being challenged 2 times. 
WIZARDS! challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone BACON 
MAKIN''s warrior.  Defending his title for another turn, FLATLINERS kept 
ABOMINATION's warrior, WIZARDS!, from claiming the throne.  Tell me, is nothing 
sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that Don Corleone's uses trolls in 
their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Is it really true that KOLACT has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, KOLACT, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in KOLACT and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
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. --
