                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in NIATOLI ISLAND since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf 
Modeen adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Bein' on top is 
great while it lasts, SEA DOGS.  But how many friends do you have now?  A team with 
purpose!  A team with the skill to back up their boasts!  Getting a 3-0-0 their first 
time out is HALLOWIENERS.  What's with WISP?  She actually beat THE SEWING CIRCLE's 
GRANDMA'S FAN, and walked away with 19 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big 
at ZOMBIE SQUAD while they watched WISP clobber GRANDMA'S FAN.  She lost 14 points 
and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Har har har!  Did SCUTTLEBUTT 
wimp out, or just get lazy?  Anyway, he's not Duelmaster anymore.  I'm sure NIATOLI 
ISLAND is excited about HELEN KELLER, the new Duelmaster from HEROES.  (remember?)  
But when you've seen as many as I have...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and 
dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     Warriors of NIATOLI ISLAND 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?  Are 
you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

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. --
