                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I've got this deal with the Khalhums Dwarf, see?  They're not going to let him
take the title, whatever he does on the sands, so what I said is, no point in getting
hurt over it.  We'll put on a good show, salute the fan at the end, and walk off.
Then I buy him a drink.  He can really put those drinks away!

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for MORINDEL SALM, who flew up 24 points in the rankings after mashing 
LION'S MANE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  And falling like a basher in 
the top ten was LION'S MANE, who dropped 20 points after a disappointing (to say the 
least) bout with MORINDEL SALM.  Well, everybody's pal LUM BUSBY moved his record to 
23-22-0 by defeating CONVICTED ASSASSIN in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 2 
recognition points.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and 
avoid aiming at that location.   
     Here is other news that is of note.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they 
will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the CLIFFHOME giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Hasta la bye-bye. 
(Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

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. --

Faith -- You seem to have a problem with that.  Either you have none, or you place it
in the wrong area, such as having faith that you will lose to me. -- Sauvarn Maur
P.S.  For a zombie, you aren't bad looking.  But I don't see a future in any kind of
relationship with you.

Baskerville Pig -- Mmm, with biscuits and gravy!  I could do that. -- Morindel Salm

The Cows Afoot -- Yes, on MY foot.  Get OFF, you lummox. -- Kevsilessa Kiro

And a Mordant Deserter.  Are they having purges in Mordant, too? -- Vonsitan Korv

Lion's Mane -- You probably need to get it shorn. -- Morindel Salm

My Deer Watson -- Nah, it suits me. -- Sauvarn Maur

We salute the tourney participants. -- Jorja and Jinda-Ban
