     Biting Fly stomped his feet to clear them of snow and hung his cloak on a peg
near the door.
     His teammates looked up from the kettle steaming over the fire in the central
pit.  "Where've you been?" Stonedog asked.
     "Looking at doors," the Fly said.  "Especially, looking at the prices on doors.
     Blackhorn nodded as if some suspicion had been confirmed.  "If we're lucky,
we'll get a door by midsummer, right?"
     "If we're VERY lucky, we MIGHT."
     Anvil began to laddle steaming... something from the kettle into a cluster of
mugs.  "It depends," he said, looking smug.  "How do you feel about... raiding?  Or
looting?"
     "We're Rirorni," Rainbird answered.  "We're in favor of those things, of
course."  He sampled the contents of his mug.  "What IS this?"
     Anvil nodded and sipped from his own mug, making a face.  "The toddy, nothing
poisonous, and you don't want to know more.  The door... there's a farm outside town,
maybe twelve miles.  Looks like it's been abandoned for a long time--"
     "And the farmhouse has a door?"  Blackhorn straightened.  "Great!  Let's go!"
     "Any idea whose farm?" Rainbird asked.  "Why it was abaondoned?"
     "No idea," Anvil said, not meeting his teammate's eyes.  "But the door is in
good condition."
     "What have we got to lose?" Blackhorn asked.  "Let's go get it in the morning."

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon DULLENS, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  HARRY POTTER AND THE posted a nice gain, to come 
in 2nd.  Everybody loves a winner...  CARDOW HUNTERS had cause to celebrate, after 
STONEDOG got 13 points by beating TOODLES ENSLAVED!.  ANVIL certainly had a baffled 
expression on his face, after losing to TOODLES ENRAGED! and losing 6 points in the 
process!  SAM ADAMS successfully staved off a grab for the roses by THUMBSCREWS of 
THE CONFESSIORS.  Does DULLENS have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  So who 
was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  
Someone's got a basic problem...   
     So much to report, so little time!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Questions are 
being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain 
tavern in DULLENS would I avoid!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- 
Novgorodny Vir

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. --

Once again, the fight reports have not arrived.  So, based on the e-newsletter:

Shoot!  I had the biggest point drop after losing to a standby?  Shoot!  Like there
was anybody ELSE to fight....  But it was Toodles Enraged who defeated me, and that
is just flat-out humiliating. -- Biting Fly

Huh, no most challenged, no most avoided... it's only when I have to go to the e-
newsletter for information that I end up reading the spy report, and what a waste of
my time it so often is, too. -- Jorja

Sam Adams -- There is a god.  My thanks.  Bring some of your beer over to our
guildhouse--not tonight, make it maybe... three nights from tonight.  By then, we
might have a door for you to knock on. -- Rainbird

I put the Tex Impersonater in his place, or at least near his place--the arenamaster
stopped me as I was winding up for the final blow. -- Stonedog

The Polyjuice Twins are going to help us get our new door.  That was the bet.  At
least, that was the side of the bet that counts, because I won the fight. --
Blackhorn

If that Captain of the Guard is a fair example of our local security, I'm getting a
watchdog.  A MEAN watchdog. -- Anvil
