                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of SOLVEN!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with UP?  She actually beat 
KELLUMBO'S KIDS' TAMMY, and walked away with 24 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at THE REPUBLICANS.  SAMUEL A ALITO, JR lost 15 points to OH WELL.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe SAMUEL A ALITO, JR will provide more easy wins...  ZEBROE 
was reminded on the sands why BLIZZARD is Duelmaster.  I suppose you want to hear 
some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  SOLVEN thinks THE 
REPUBLICANS and their 452-443-26 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give 
up...  In my day, no team with a 449-441-26 would scare me off!  What's the problem, 
KELLUMBO'S KIDS?  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, 
SAMUEL A ALITO, JR!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.   
     Warriors of SOLVEN unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Is it my 
imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  All 
work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Judge -- Well, not a great turn by either of us.  You had your chance to make up
ground, and let it slip away (no surprise).  19-15 my lead.  You had better hope I
don't pull off a few 3-2 or better turns.  Hmmm, which warrior of yours shall I
choose for a little night fighting?  Hmmmm.... -- DK

Tammy -- Good try, Kid, but no seegar. -- Zebroe
P.S.  Not that a tender young thing such as yourself should be associating with a
seegar anyway.

John Roberts -- I always wanted to spank a politician. -- Benito Chatte

Captial Punishment -- Fortunate for me that I was not guilty, eh? -- Chaz Ducker

Lord Protector Brooks & Dunn -- Must've been the phase of the moon. -- Zebroe

Kellumbo -- We had the same record last turn--still not making up any ground.  Things
are looking bleak for me in our little contest.  Interesting that our respective
teams are the top two teams in the arena right now given our little contest. -- Judge

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.
