                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt ZENSU will ever be the same.  And let's see, HEARING AID fought DIRTY COAL 
and gained 14 points and contributed to OLDER BY FAR's 4-0-0.  MARLIN KOLE has lost 
to ROCKING CHAIR, falling 10 points, while helping make BEYOND THE PALE a 2-3-0 turn. 
Due to hers absence and inability to defend the throne, RHOMBA has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  We should ask HEARING AID about the thrill of victory, and what being 
the new Duelmaster does for a warrior, it's now the one to ask.  Can someone confirm 
a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The 
Victory Tavern until they win.  Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  SERPENTS HOLD has cause to stand tall, as 
they were ZENSU's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  
And avoiding SERPENTS HOLD more than any other team we find OLDER BY FAR.  ZENSU, are 
we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged warrior this 
turn was BEYOND THE PALE's warrior MARLIN KOLE.  More fighters challenged him than 
challenged the Duelmaster!   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  Is it really true that ZENSU has 
more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in ZENSU, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe

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. --

Userous Merchant -- You surely are a hard and long negotiator!  It took so long, and
I was really hurting to hit the john; so I hit you instead. -- Got The Runs

Marlin Kole -- Apparently you didn't hear me! -- I Say no

Heart -- I found you rather heartless on that challenge.  Kudos, I guess. -- Hearing
Aid

I will have to hobble over and talk to my crew.  A one win round is well below Older
By Far standards.  Why, back in my day.... -- Methuselah

Dirty Coal -- And now you've got coal dust all over my armor! -- Cormek Deane

I Say No -- And I did.  Works for me. -- Marlin Kole

That One Monkey -- Huh, I sent HIM off with a banana in his ear. -- Corbett Josye

Evil Trash -- The fight against littering never ends.  Eternal vigilance is price of
clean streets. -- Linaea Deane

An Embezzling Scribe?  I guess eternal vigilance is also the price of honestly
calculated accounts. -- Loris Deane

Our congratulations to Heart. -- Jorja and Beyond the Pale

And we salute the tourney participants from Zensu, both of them. -- Jorja and Beyond
