                             Notes from the arena champ.

     You see how it is, you Little Devil?  The Commission abhors an undefeated record
and they set me on you to provide the defeat.  It was all THEIR doing.  *I* don't
care about your record, you know.
     Of course, you deserved to lose.  You were positively anti-Dog there!  You were
trying to kill me, I could TELL.  Can't have that.  It's just WRONG to be anti-Dog.
It's inhuman!

                                       Woofer

P.S.  Did you set that up for a loss?  I just don't see why you didn't win it.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of TOBIR.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Practice pays for 
BINKIE, who pummelled ANDILLIA, to pocket 19 points.  CHICHI-HOOEY certainly had a 
baffled expression on his face, after losing to TANTRUM and losing 9 points in the 
process!  What can be a greater victory?  LITTLE DEVIL has taken hers place as the 
top, as TOBIR's new Duelmaster.  Word has it one team in TOBIR is using psychics to 
predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the 
arena.  A certain tavern in TOBIR would I avoid!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  More important duties call me.  TOBIR, I leave 
you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Deeproot Inn.  'Til next 
time-- Novgorodny Vir

Sippycup Sam -- Euwh!  And then you blew bubbles, and it was really messy and sour-
milk-smelling. -- Andillia

Binkie -- I think we should team up and GET the arenamaster.  What business did he
have to be "disgusted with the turn the duel has taken"?  It was a perfectly
acceptable duel.  We used real weapons, hit each other several real blows, bled real
blood, and did not take too long about it.  What was there for him to be disgusted
about? -- Chichi-Hooey the offended but not at you

Pamper Packer -- Does that actually make people pamper you?  It doesn't show.  Not
that I minded.  Anything fit to bite and all that. -- White Fang

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,
