                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
RIZTAB brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see WHO win a fight and gain 13 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, WHO beat 
WILD DEUCE and WILD DEUCE lost 10 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  ARISTOCLEA Dark 
Arena Challenged TILKIRRIN THE ELF for RIZTAB's Title this turn, and guess what 
happened?  And if variety is the spice of life, RIZTAB may be getting bland, as 
ARISTOCLEA stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, 
how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for RIZTAB's 
morgue.  More variety.  DREAMERS has cause to pause today, as ARISTOCLEA was sent to 
the Dark Arena, and came back--though not in the best of moods, I'll wager.  Whoa!  
I'll even buy TACKLE BOX a drink tonight!  Anyone who can come back from the Dark 
Arena, I want to be on his good side!  SEA DOGS has cause to pause today, as HULL 
SCRUBBER was sent to the Dark Arena, and came back--though not in the best of moods, 
I'll wager.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing 
these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the RIZTAB arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste 
this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide

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. --

Aristoclea -- Well?  What did you think of the almond cookies?  Should I go with
them, or turn back to viscoches (anise and cinnamon shortbreads)?  Which would you
like at your graduation party? -- Donnamira
P.S.  Yep, you guessed it, we've been asked to cater the eats at the party.

Alcmaeon -- But... EVERYONE likes chocolate!  What's WRONG with putting it in coffee?
-- Jaylene Mokhar

Angry Rosetta may have a temper, but wow, does she teach!  I can work with this. --
Lorimera
P.S.  Occassionally.

Antiphon -- You mean... like oreos or something?  A bottom layer and a responding top
layer, and something sort of sticky in between?  I dunno, that seems almost like...
mixed media.  I don't really trust stuff like that. -- Jouella

When -- ...the cows come home.  And in this weather, they won't be hurrying. --
Miriamina

We congratulate Aristoclea. -- Jorja and the Sweet Magic crew

And we salute the tourney participants. -- Jorja and the Sweet Magic crew again
