                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
JHANS brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, ENGINES 'O' DEATH, since 
MINDSOVERMATTER took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see KANT win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, KANT beat MIRIAM and MIRIAM lost 11 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Due 
to absence, and inability to defend the throne, IRON MAN has lost the Title of 
Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with 
the new, as PEG LEG takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  
Heh, heh.  Lucas Lounge, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they 
get this stuff?  From JHANS' trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
ENGINES 'O' DEATH, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided 
team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And who led the way in this mass 
act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was MINDSOVERMATTER.  Ha ha ha 
ha!  PATCH was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM 
insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  PATCH was challenged by one of MINDSOVERMATTER's 
warriors this turn, with MONTESQUIEU having a lead of 23 points going into the fight. 
Ha ha aha ha aha ha!!!  MONTESQUIEU was was bested by by SEA DOGS' warrior!  Thank 
the gods for big favors!  ha!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for JHANS' 
morgue.  More variety.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is 
developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in JHANS to get a drink than Lucas Lounge!  Any 
suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city of JHANS.  I 
feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

CALLING ALL THUGS, BRUTES, OGRES, QUARTER HALF WITS, SHALLOW HALBERD ENTHUSIASTS AND
MAUL RATS:  Since the Bashing style has often been maligned in the forums, it is time
to give the style a little tough love with the following concept:  An ALL-BASHER
arena.  The rules are simple--enter the arena as a rookie basher.  That's it.  RSI
said I need to get 20 managers on board and I'm about half way there.  If you are
interested in taking part, PM me in the forums or email me:  chase at accesspr.com
and put D2 in the subject header.

ATTENTION EVERYONE -- In March I am going to do manager lists for all arenas.  This
is part of my ongoing and undoubtedly largely futile attempt to get my lists
organized.  If you think I might not know who you are or if you think I might and
you'd rather I not share that information, let me know this month!  You can e-mail
me at Sue at solberg dash mathews dot com (replacing the at, dash and dot with
appropriate characters.  You can send a diplo to The Saint.  You can put an ad in
the newsletter.  Semaphore doesn't work so well, nor does telepathy. -- The Saint,
