                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
SOLVEN brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, SERPENTS HOLD, since 
MIDDLE WAY 15 took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see LUGER win a fight and gain 8 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, LYNNIS NALL beat ASP and ASP lost 1 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And 
if variety is the spice of life, SOLVEN may be getting bland, as JULES stays top dog 
in the city.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You 
want to know what's new, don't you, SOLVEN?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad 
to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

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

Embezzling Hen -- You're probably too tough to fry, but maybe stewing...?  Seriously,
LEAVE MY EGGS ALONE. -- Dejanna Kalm

Chicken Guard -- Sometimes I get really tired of this stuff, you know?  I think about
quitting.  And then someone like you comes along, and it seems like my DUTY to whack
you.  So I do. -- Korine Orles

Asp -- It always puts me off when you lisp.  You don't look like a lisper, somehow. 
- Gorlon Inthur
P.S.  You don't fight like one, either.

Plucked Scribe -- Seems like every time we turn around, there's a chicken, and we
don't even LIKE chickens all that much. -- Lynnis Nall

I'll bet ol' Shiftyeyed wasn't really a volunteer.  I'll bet he was drafted, probably
for being a worthless layabout. -- Fedora Linde

We salute the tourney participants. -- Jorja and the Middle Way
P.S.  And we expected better of Luger.  He must not travel well.
