                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out RIZTAB to see 
what's new.  Too bad, DREAMERS, but HIGH JINKS was just too good to be stopped.  
FORCE OF FIVE had like a really albendranius week!  Those hunks got a 3-0-0 and wound 
up as 6th team!  One team deserves special mention 'cause they moved up 1 after going 
4-1-0.  Keep it up, CULTS-R-US!  MVP award for HANG-TEN HARRY?  HIGH JINKS' proud of 
him after beating AUTUMN LEAVES and getting 21 points.  Talk about yer big time 
losers!  SUGAR got smashed by CANNABUS JR II, and lost 14 points!  Like HIGH JINKS' 
AGGRANDIZIN ANNE is sweating since she got challenged by Duelmaster CHIC SHEIK!  And 
I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome 
AGGRANDIZIN ANNE.  Aren't HIGH JINKS proud.  (Oh, my.) Who was the wiseguy that said 
RIZTAB's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Swinging Aardvark?  Don't look at 
me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  CULTS-R-US was the most avoided team.  Is a 33-27-1 
record really that scary?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are TRIPLE 6 MAFIA?  
CULTS-R-US, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an 
invitation!  Like, is SUGAR JANE popular, or what?  She was challenged the most in 
all of RIZTAB!  She's got a 13-43-0, is that good?  Speaking of challenging 26 points 
above did you hear about BROTHER ZERO of CULTS-R-US vs. HIGH JINKS' MOLLY?  (And how 
was that intro!) Do you think BROTHER ZERO knew something before he challenged MOLLY? 
He got a win and 23 points.  What will the guy do next?  People were asking me did 
MAVERICK REALLY challenge TALA GOG?  (all right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded 
good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but TALA GOG wants me to write 
about it since she won victory over MAVERICK.  Satisfied?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  How cruel!  STEEL THUNDER heartlessly sent his to GIGANTOS certain fate 
in the Dark Arena.  Is a 10-11-1 bad or something?  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all 
you guys can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  RIZTAB is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

After a long hiatus, the Heroes of Marvel are back.  We were in another galaxy last
turn fighting evil-doers...thus our absence.  Sorry to disappoint our fans.  Thank
you for your concern. -- Dr. Strange
P.S.  Good luck to all our representatives in the April Fools' Tourney.

Riztab -- Sorry to miss my column and defense of the title.  Some info on me:
Slasher with SC fave.  11 8 9 17 17 5 17 completely mode except +4 Parry (useless!!!)
and Defense is still unknown.  Master rating in Initiative, Decise and Attack, Expert
rating in Riposte and Parry. -- Banshee

Tillerita -- I assure you I am a man.  If you weren't a lowly Orc, perhaps you could
find out. -- Banshee

Tala Gog -- Even after I brought you to your knees you are still yapping?  I may just
have to teach you a lesson. -- Hawkeye

Autumn Leaves -- I assure you my blood pressure sits at an even 120/60 throughout my
fights.  I am a physical specimen to behold.  Perhaps you couldn't tell through all
that armor? -- Nick Fury

Comrade Kook -- Washington D.C. is nice in the fall, but surely there are better
places to live.  Since crime is high, I find myself in D.C. more than I would like.
Thanks for caring. -- Maverick

Buddha -- Yeeee Gods!, you egg-shaped dome of a man.  That makes us Culters 0-5
against that embarrassingly bouncy basketball body of yours.  Perhaps next time I
should bring a harpoon. -- Brother Zero

Tala Gog -- Sorry hon, but a girl's gotta do whatta.........well, you know the lame
finish. -- Sister X 

Ugly Eddie -- I've seen scaffolding with prettier teeth. -- Comrade Kook

Jorja -- Noooo foolin'.  Wow, a maul, that is an interesting convergence of forces.
Funny what can happen when certain frequencies are forced to vibrate in unharmonious
tones. -- Jondeaux

Enem Ri -- Couldn't stay down, eh?  You just had to get back up, eh?  rrrrrrr --
Krankykarl

Comrade Kook -- You want comrades?  Maybes I'll encourage the incorporation of more
eastern fighters like Ivan Mashminaplp and Vydonch U Kissov. (stole that last one) --
Ugly Eddie

Funky Monk -- Now that's some funky stuff.  A fight of galactic import, funky style.
Glad you met me. -- Molly

G.I.I.L. -- All right then, we'll call it a draw. -- Hang-Ten Harry

Yoshii -- Such is the craft of our craft.  You stained the sands admirably. --
Aggrandizin Anne

Fussy Budd -- You agid!  (sdezzig)  W'y do'd you chafe your budd?  Wid a rasor!
Chafe id smoo' as...as a baby's budd.  Ded I would'i hab do do all dis sdezzing. --
Audum Leafes
P.S.  Bud maybe id's de drees.  All dad pollid.  Bad sduff, pollid.

Sister X -- (recoiling)  You're unnatural, an offense against...against everything!
First, you can NOT be a Shew at that height.  I don't care what the Commission told
you, it's impossible.  (Unless, of course, you've been subjected to nasty shrinking
spells.  Horrid thought.)  And second, you don't fight like a Cult Member at ALL.  I
bet the REAL cultist would be very ANGRY with you.  And I hope they beat you into
very small sausage patties. -- Tala Gog
P.S.  Shewish!  You?  Impossible.

Chic Sheik -- Darn, I KNEW there was something I forgot to do!  I forgot to bribe the
handicapper to set up an easy match for me.  (brooding darkly)  But his demands are
exorbitant. -- Sugar Jane

Kant -- Ah.  (tilts head way back)  I see why you have such a towering reputation
among other dreamers of your type. -- Tillerita
P.S.  I hurt, therefore I am?

Motta the Pike?  Where has HE been hiding?  We almost never see standbys here, and
though I DID win, and learn a few things, still, I could do without. -- Alourshin

Lord Protector Banshee -- Excellent!  The nights should be much quieter here when
you're gone.  We all look forward to it. -- Arenamaster Rillion
P.S.  Serenade Sheila Greywand.  I'm sure she'll appreciate the experience.

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
the Empire Rising, and Osiris!  May they be blessed with the blood of their enemies,
and give no quarter in War! -- Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire

11 April 2006
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.
