     Irina floundered through another snow drift.  "Tell me again WHY we are out here
freezing our fingers and toes off?"
     "It's the March for Jhans," Farlo Jost explained.  "I told you this before.
We're marching to show the world that there are gladiators in Jhans who... ah, who
are in Jhans!  That we want more action here."
     "But not adventures," Fermin added.  "Not that kind of action.  Just more active
gladiators in the arena."
     "And the march proves it... how?"  Irina stopped and turned to face her
companions, which had the added advantage of putting her back to the icy wind.
     "Demonstrates we're HERE," Farlo said.  "People forget that, they think we're
just some kind of sideshow.  Shows we're willing to leave the comfort of our
guildhouses and... and..."
     "Sacrifice frozen fingers and toes for the cause of more gladiating in Jhans?"
Irina frowned.  "Are you sure it doesn't show that we're dumb?"
     Kolly Liggit, who had been silent till now, snorted.  "We're gladiators, of
course we're dumb."
     "But we still want more action here," Farlo said.
     "Maybe when it's warmer.  I'm going back to the guildhouse NOW," Irina said.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of JHANS.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  MIDDLE WAY 17?  Who?  
REIGN is the top team these days, buddies!  Good things come to those who fight well, 
as ERRATA can attest, moving up by 1.  Practice pays for TANNY, who pummelled IRINA 
JINZ, to pocket 17 points.  COME ON certainly had a baffled expression on his face, 
after losing to CONVICTED ASSASSIN and losing 16 points in the process!  Those who 
hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by KUNG-FU MASTER, of JHANS, who despite 
a 0-0-0 couldn't overcome JHANS' Number 1.  So who was the warrior seen charging into 
immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the lion, so 
did the "warriors" in JHANS avoid THE FALLEN ANGELS.  The warriors of THE FALLEN 
ANGELS found their efforts at combat frustrated as ERRATA apparently had more 
important things to do than fight.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Oh hard!  that 
to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid JHANS farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

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. --
