A Duelmaster with only 67 points!  Whoever heard of such a thing?  Oh well, at least
it prompted a personal ad for once....

Yours,

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in JHANS. 
Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Coming up with 
a solid 3-2-0 outing, FRIENDLY FIRE has advanced 4 places in the rankings.  Hey 
everybody, watch out for TEMPUS, who flew up 14 points in the rankings after mashing 
MORDANT DESERTER like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher 
in the top ten was TRISH, who dropped 4 points after a disappointing (to say the 
least) bout with LIONHEART.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody 
knuckles was JHANS' VETERAN MERCENARY, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by 
IRON MAN.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming 
at that location.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the JHANS arena.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  There's got to be more reason for the sending of BATTERING 
RAM to the Dark Arena than its record (6-4-0).  Anybody got any ideas SEA DOGS?  
Knowing when to use the right tactics at the proper time is a very important step on 
the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in JHANS have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The

I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.
If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta
