                                      SPY REPORT

     I'm back, just in time to see ODDLY SHAPED BOOB get sent from the throne room to
the coffin room.  Of course, the BOOB will be special delivered to Sheila Greywand
for resurrection.  I've often wondered what Sheila thinks about her Lord Protectors
arriving dead.  And how does she react to these warriors?  Her temper, of course, is
more legendary than Khorga Khan.  Of course, ODDLY SHAPED BOOB did hold the throne
for three consecutive turns, no small feat, especially here in Talcama.  With the
throne open and many contenders all clumped at the top, it was up a battle.  In the
end, FEAR edged out ARMPIT CANDY.  Both warriors fought random matchups and won, but
FEAR fought a higher ranked opponent and received more recognition points for his
win.  Hail to Duelmaster FEAR.
     Seven teams fought 5 warriors each.  Two of these teams went 4-1, but all of
them won at least 2 fights.  The 4-1's were posted by SHEPHERDS (who won the Current
Top Team award) and PENTARCHIE-18.  CONSORTIUM CREW returned to action and won the
Team on the Move award as the CREW gained 40 recognition points.
     Of course, by now, you should all realize that warrior movement is up, not down.
This turn, twelve warriors moved up a class compared to only six moving down a class.
Another very common occurrence in Talcama is lots of down challenging and seeing most
of the challengers win their fights.  All total, there were 10 challenges, 7 of which
were down.  9 of the 10 challengers won their fights, the one loss being LANCARIUS
down challenging 5 points and getting himself killed against GO-TO.  If he wasn't
dead, I'm sure he'd be hanging himself in shame and embarrassment.  GAD meanwhile,
earned himself a spot in the Hall of Fame of unpopular warriors.  GAD killed the GOLD
DUST here in Talcama.  I don't care if it is only dust.  Gold is Gold and you
shouldn't go around killing it.
     Even though the Battle Royal is over, we still see just how good the elite here
in the city are.  COLON CONVOY is by far the hottest warrior on the sands.  In fact,
he's one of the hottest warriors in a long time with a perfect 10-0.  Not perfect,
but more than respectable are the other hottest warriors of late, including VORN,
PETIT TROLL BEVEUX, and THE S-MAN at 8-2.  Making the list at the bare minimum of 7-3
over the last 10 turns are ARMPIT CANDY, ASURION, and THE S-MAN.  Well done, all of
you.  Keep up you good work.
     In closing, I would like to mention that Total Parries were in last place in the
10 turn rankings.  Oh how the mighty have fallen.  The managed to go .500 this turn
and pull into 9th place, but they are not doing much.  Gotta run. -- Sherik, your
spy.

All -- Well since I like this arena so much and it is a Delarquan arena, I will be
staying.  I will also be timing my warriors for tournaments (those that are good
enough) so don't expect five fights a turn but I will pretty much remain active from
here on out.  My motto is:  Win at all costs.  That said, you will NEVER see me avoid
and I consider avoiding a coward's way to fight no matter where you are fighting.
It's a personal thing with me I guess.  I am going to try to liven up the personal
ads a bit also and maybe a spot here and there. -- Tripwire

Adamant -- Nicely done.  For some reason I thought you were a different style.  I am
going to take some R&R for awhile until the Summer Tournament; maybe we will meet
again later -- Ice

Shadrach -- I have got to be the worst slasher that Tripwire has EVER had; I don't
know why he keeps me around. -- Down W Sickness

Shadrach -- I do!  It's called +5 Att, +4 Decise!  I just wish he would learn some of
those skills already! -- Tripwire

I'm Baaaack! -- Fear

Agent of Brutality -- Didn't really mean to be so brutal!  My fault! *grin* --
Baritus (V.A.M.)

Moops!  Believe me, I probably surprised myself as much as I did you!  Seems to me
that I have better luck against higher FE warriors. -- Tharkon

V'Do -- Nothing personal, a scum is a scum and I'm definitely a scum, so therefore, I
SCUM! *smile* -- Hexalus

Variable -- You are my better.  Nothing else to say! -- Lancarius Du Lac (V.A.M.)

8-6-1, second place?  What's going on around here! -- Vincere Aut Mori

The Darkness -- You sure are an Olde one ain't cha! -- Toker (V.A.M.)
P.S.  Eight, that's a single digit, isn't it? *grin*

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.
