Duelmasters Haiku:

It's nice to be back
First time at the top
Just gotta hold out a while.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for CHIMLEVTAL.  BAD NEWS BEES like really 
fought hard to move up to 2nd from 6th.  Way to go!  One team deserves special 
mention 'cause they moved up 1 after going 4-1-0.  Keep it up, MIDDLE WAY 7!  MVP 
award for WAKIZASHI?  AVENGERS' proud of him after beating VENGEANCE and getting 21 
points.  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think BUZZ-BUZZ should 
let XANDAR be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  I hear the top team 
insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for 
PR photos.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  The warriors of THE STORM REAVERS must be getting lonely.  They 
were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  I don't know 
what BAD NEWS BEES' been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights 
from THE STORM REAVERS, that's fer sher.  Can MIDDLE WAY 7's PANDA ROSS be more 
popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really the same?  People 
were asking me did DUTIFUL REALLY challenge BUMBLE?  (all right, maybe they didn't, 
but it sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but BUMBLE wants me 
to write about it since he defeated DUTIFUL.  Satisfied?  GROM HELLSCREAM must not be 
a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  He challenged LUMUS NELP.  13 is a big 
difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I thought GROM HELLSCREAM showed great 
skill and promise when he was beat by LUMUS NELP.  All right, so I slept through it!  
Big deal!   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  CORWIN of MORE DESTROYERS wasn't planning on killing NILE PARTON, I bet. 
Now he has to worry about being Bloodfeuded, and getting put on lists...  What if 
they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Remember 
you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Katana -- I was thinking we would match up a bit better than that.  Good skill gains
for you, though. -- Dutiful

Nile Parton -- Any suggestions for improving my performance? -- The Fool

Teron Gorefiend -- It is not often I get a win in the first minute.  Thanks. --
Shrewd

Sandra -- Seems that you can withstand much more punishment than I can deal out.  Too
bad I received no answer to my prayer. -- Rosemary

Kilrogg Deadeye -- Wow.  Twelve minutes is way too much time to spend upon the sands.
Probably why I went to my knees.  Oh well, good fight either way. -- Patience

All -- The Farseers are a new team fresh from Noblish Island and hence still working
to understand the way of the sands.  Any helpful suggestions or comments would be
most welcome. -- The Catalyst, mgr. The Farseers

All -- Well, it did not take as long as I thought it might to get back to where we
belong. -- Stinger

All -- What do they make these new warriors out of?  My first add to my stable is off
for the Dark Arena.  I hope I can find a decent replacement. -- Stinger

     So do we!  These days, we get nothing but lousy raw materials. -- RUG #790797

Maui sounds good.  *I* wouldn't mind being in, or on, Maui. -- Jorja, Middle Way

One-four, a stellar turn, if you're talking about dark stars. -- Jorja, scanning the
newsletter

Grom Hellscream -- Bah.  Voice weapons, I don't think that's FAIR. -- Mandin Orwell
P.S.  Not that I expect "fair" from life, much less the arena, but I can wish....

The Fool -- Yep. -- Nile Parton, smugly the sole victor on the team

Drone-On -- I was over-matched on that one, for sure.  And now my ears are ringing.
-- Lumus Nelp

Flyby -- You went past so quickly, I never even SAW you. -- Rondor Sendal

Daikkan -- Huh?  I thought you were a manager over in Arvat! -- Panda Ross
