                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt SUNSET will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the difference, 
as LITERATE LOONS is pushed out of top team by 420 B.C., who came from 2nd with a 
4-1-0 this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to 
drown for LITERATE LOONS, whose 3-2-0 this turn dropped them by 7 into 8th.  
GOLGOTHA'S BLOOMS stable has parlayed this turn's 5-0-2 into a 4 space move up the 
rankings.  This brings them up to 2nd place.  Good work, guys!  The 420 B.C. guild 
has had a 4-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where 
this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, DUBLIN MUDSLIDE fought RED HOUSE and 
gained 21 points and contributed to BEN & JERRY'S' 3-2-1.  MITER BOX has lost to ROW 
DAYO DRIVE, falling 15 points, while helping make TOOL SHED a 2-2-1 turn.  And not 
without some honor, TOO BIG TO FAIL now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of 
SUNSET.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that 
Baba Yaga's Bar and Grill uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  KANO CLAN has cause to stand tall, 
as they were SUNSET's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And guess who avoided KANO CLAN stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
BEN'S BAZAAR.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that WALLI WEEBLE 
from NOMADIC TRIBE was SUNSET's most challenged warrior this turn.  YODLE LAYHE WHO 
from BEN'S BAZAAR took a risk this turn by bravely challenging up 30 points in a 
challenge against FRITERSATAFATFARM.  Sad to say, YODLE LAYHE WHO lost to 
FRITERSATAFATFARM, and the attempt ended up costing YODLE LAYHE WHO 0 recognition 
points.  In a brave attempt, TERRE HAUTE from TRIAL & ERROR challenged up 22 points 
to fight ICE from the OMINOUS REIGN stable.  TERRE HAUTE perhaps got its just 
desserts, seeing as it was defeated by ICE and ended up with 81 recognition points.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  GRIM FANDANGO has lost JET BLAK to 
the arena in the sky, but they don't seem to be worried.  What do you expect from 
7-7-0?  I guess it was coming sooner or later, KANO CLAN has lost MUTABA IRO, and 
SUNSET is bound to miss him.  For a little while, at least.  Kudos go out to 
SASQUATCH this turn, for revenging NOMADIC TRIBE's bloodfeud against DARK AT HEART's 
warrior DRED.  Well done.  Is it really true that SUNSET has more dishwashers per 
capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in SUNSET and I've a long road ahead of 
me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in SUNSET again, farewell-- Alarond the 
Scribe

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. --
Tripwire

Bloodthirst -- Let's get this over with.  I have things to do that I care about. --
Grey Fatal

Walli Weeble -- I take it you're more of an observer.  Well, you're good at it.  Grey
wanted me to ask if you would be up for another game of tee ball soon. -- Bloodsong

Cerrryl, Bloodthirst -- Yep.  Keep it coming.  We'll keep rubbing it in. -- Poca

Trelaine -- Thank you. -- Sam Byck

Purple Voodoo -- I think you left me feeling black AND purple after our fight.  Be
seeing you. -- Chocolate Therapy

Miniami Tori -- Sorry to end your wining streak.  I promise I will put those skills
to good use. -- Karamel Sutra

Seliora -- I'm going to have to work on my conditioning.  I thought I was in shape
but you showed me otherwise.  Well done. -- Whirled Peace

Chabon -- It doesn't pay to mess with a monkey.  Even a chunky one. -- Chunky Monkey

Grim Fandango and all -- Thanks for the warm welcome. -- Mannequin, mgr Ben & Jerry's

Graven Ward -- Well at least I didn't do that to ya.  Rest in peace my friend. --
Spigot

Opehlia Delphi -- At least my fritters didn't give you an Oedipus complex! --
Frittersatfatfarm

Barbaric Smurf -- Looking more like Daisy Smurf there! -- I Shot the Sheriff

Boneface -- I could have sworn you were pinhead after I got done with you.... -- Too
Big to Fail

Persistent Beggar -- Sorry... but you just asked one too many times. -- Level of
Malevolence

     But I wanted your money, and I'm not a thief, so what else was there to do? --
     Whining Ralphie, Licensed Beggar

Metaru Hei -- I'm looking like a cheap suit these days. -- Row Dayo Drive

Nomadic Tribe -- How's the view from down there? <huge smirk> -- Deviation

Jonisson -- My manager is a devious one... what can I say? -- Too Big to Fail

Borges and the Loons -- Oh, now that just isn't cool.  Killing a 45 fe vet so close
to graduation and retirement?  And he stinks, so he won't even get a shot at
resurrection!  Still, I do have to respect the kill.  Graven Ward had just done the
same to Pynchon.  And if you're going to kill a vet, doing it in a bloodfeud for a
fallen veteran and a title fight, is about the most impressive thing I can imagine.
So while I am disappointed, I respect the bloodfeud. -- Nomad and the Tribe

Dred -- Saved from the bloodfeud by having our challenger get bloodfeuded (and
killed!) himself.  Shot #2 I guess. -- Nomad and the Tribe

Chesterton -- You are better than advertised.  Or maybe I'm just as bad as
advertised?  Whatever.  Another loss. -- Bul

Bloodsong -- Well, one of the Tribe had to win, didn't they?! -- Walli

Spartacus -- Welcome to the arena.  We in the Tribe like to encourage new teams in

the arena so I was instructed to "take it easy on you."  Yeah, that must be what
happened.  Who knew that "taking it easy" was just another way of saying, "get your
butt kicked?" -- The Hun

Sam Byck -- No offense, but you don't seem very flower-like to me. -- Trelaine

Wild -- Ah, yes... in my youth, I, too, was wild.  It was good while it lasted, but
eventually I had to settle down and get a job.  Bummer, but there it is. -- Jonisson

Grass Seed -- (sneezing three times sharply)  I dig I'b allergig. -- Kallia May

Lord Notsonice -- Don't look now, but you aren't exactly unusual that way. -- Elise
Isla

Knuckles -- They never go out of style, do they? -- Bitter Dove

Oh, no!  Graven Ward DEAD?  But we weren't DONE with him! -- the Sword Opera cast

We salute the tourney participants. -- Jorja and the Sword Opera cast

Blood and Sand, Daggers Deep -- Welcome to Sunset! -- Bill the Bard and The Red
Blades

Raging Lords -- Glad to see old teams returning.  Welcome back. -- Bill the Bard

Terre Haute -- Yup, that was a lot of fun. -- Yuedebahl

Friters -- And that's why I routinely avoid you.  No skills, you bum?  Another good
reason to avoid you. -- Ophelia

Sledgehead -- Maybe lead with the head next time. -- Hope Springs

Orwell -- I hope you're not engaging in any thought crimes right now. -- Bruno

Rhennthyl -- Maybe I should try a different weapon.  Nice job. -- Lucy Stone

Hail managers of Sunset -- I think we of the stable Blood and Sand are going to like
it here.  Lots of new and established teams.  Thanks to everyone who has welcomed us,
even you Ben. -- Deep Thought mgr. Blood and Sand

Spartacus -- Spartacus -- Spartacus.

Borges -- You slay me... I mean you slay GW!  Congrats on keeping the seat of power;
good luck keeping it. -- Gentleben

Blakskul -- Nice fight!  Now we are going to need a tie breaker. -- Yodles

I Shot the Sheriff -- Guess I came out of my shell too early. -- B. Smurf

Kipling -- What's the matter?  Smurf got your tongue? -- Speedo

Plague -- Drats! -- The F***er

Barca -- You're not supposed to beat me!  I am a ninja!  Did you not realise!  Well I
never! -- Barbie

Blood and Sand -- Welcome to the sand box. -- Ben's Bazaar

Raging Lords -- Glad your raging once again. -- Ben's Bazaar
