                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
ZORPUNT.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  We 
now have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  WRESTLING now holds the 
crown and they are betting they can keep it.  Hey everybody, watch out for JELLO, who 
flew up 23 points in the rankings after mashing DARRON POOLE like a melon.  Keep your 
eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was DARRON POOLE, who 
dropped 14 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with JELLO.  Our 
battling duelmaster PLATE SHIFT has managed to hold the title, fending off MORIT 
KOBUN's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, KRILL CAVALRY.  Advice to 
bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid KRILL CAVALRY, please raise you hand. 
Wow.  Does ZORPUNT really have that many liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but 
catch DISASTER's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running 
from KRILL CAVALRY.  Well just about everybody wants a piece of PIG, who was this 
week's most challenged warrior.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your ally 
in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  Its been 
real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

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. --

According to Jorja's latest "directive," as Top Team we're supposed to do a little
spotlight.  But we honestly don't believe there's anyone here to read it but us, or
at least anyone here who WILL read it, so we are not going to do it.  You could
always prove us wrong, of course, with a personal asking us to get a spotlight
together for next time. -- the Krill Cavalry

Plate Shift -- Things like that make me really nervous.  It's as bad as table-tapping
or whatever they call it. -- Morit Kobun

Olive Oil -- Huh, forgot my vinegar. -- Modesta Stone

Tar -- Messy! -- Darron Poole
P.S.  I suppose this means that if I hug you, I'll never let you go?  I could work
with that.

Jello -- I really, really don't like you. -- Korine Race

Pestilence -- Gosh, do *you* know my little sister, too? -- Donny Poole

Olive Oil -- Maybe I should be pasta, instead.  With a whisk of garlic and basil?
Huh, I'm making myself hungry.... -- Modesta Stone

Our congratulations to Earth Quake. -- Jorja and the Krill Cavalry

We salute the tourney participants. -- Jorja and the Krill Cavalry again
