                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
CALEAM brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  CALEAM saw the first turn for THE 
HOUSE, a 5-0-1, and some teams are scared, others are too arrogant to notice.  Take 
note friends, take note.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see BEBUC win a 
fight and gain 15 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, COLORADO SPRINGS beat ENLIGHTENED 
BEING and ENLIGHTENED BEING lost 10 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Due to 
absence, and inability to defend the throne, DE DE MAO has lost the Title of 
Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with 
the new, as BALTIMORE takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old 
Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Swinging Aardvark, humph!  I've tasted better ale at 
mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From CALEAM's trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  CALEAM, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  
VORTEX the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks 
like HERE TO PHOENIX avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be 
losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, UN-SEAMSTRESS was this 
turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  I notice ORLANDO 
challenging down 25 points to fight UN-SEAMSTRESS, HERE TO PHOENIX doubtless has some 
rotten excuse for such an insult to honor.  And golly gee, ORLANDO overcame 
UN-SEAMSTRESS.  Aren't we all surprised and impressed?   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if 
the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in CALEAM to get a drink than The Swinging 
Aardvark!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide

Orlando -- It's a pity you're a neuter golem.  You might have been fun otherwise.  As
it is...there's nothing for me there. -- Un-Seamstress

M. Chardinee?  Why wasn't the arenamaster disgusted with the turn the fight had
taken?  *I* was. -- Korbel

Colorado Springs -- It says here that despite being without gender, you're Aruaki.
What I don't understand is why the Commission passed up the opportunity to call you a
dwarf, you being nearly seven feet tall and all. -- Golden One
P.S.  Ah, of course.  No beard.

Send the Fratsfan Noble back to Fratsfa!  Um, actually, he's listed as Aruaki, and
*I* am the one of Fratsfan blood.  Odd how the world works, isn't it?  If I went back
to Fratsfa, various unpleasant things would be likely to happen.  Which is, of
course, why I have not done so. -- Clemmie

Tyra -- That was not, ideally, the introduction to gladiating that I had hoped for.
-- Golderie

Warbride -- Right before the tourney, all KINDS of people are showing up for cameos.
Bad luck for you, but that's the way it goes. -- Korbel

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.

We of the Desolate Empire Alliance want to welcome two managers to our fold.  Kon of
