                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Practice pays for FRITILLARY, who pummelled AMBITIOUS GUARD, to pocket 
11 points.  5 GOT PICKED successfully staved off a grab for the roses by SATURN of 
WANDERERS.  Does KATI-TEI have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  So who's the 
team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR 
stunt to me.   
     So much to report, so little time!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not a 
spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an 
unconscious stupor.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As the seasons change, and the creatures of the 
wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Can anything compare 
to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for KATI-TEI?  On that giddy note I take my 
leave-- Novgorodny Vir

5 Got Picked -- Oh, yeah?  Where are they, then?  It seems to be just you and the
Wanderers.  Six active warriors, which is genuinely pathetic.  Oh, sure, it's
probably fine for someone who wants to graduate a delicate warrior without risk, but
it's also pathetic. -- Saturn
P.S.  Nothing against you, personally, though we would like to see your teammates
here.  Or else close down the arena, either would do.

The Honest Merchant didn't think he "had the time to waste on the likes of me."  Bah.
I showed HIM how I like his tone!  Damned stuck-up half-elf.... -- Chock

Eep!  I didn't know that was HIS chicken, but the Ruthless Jaywalker just DASHED
across the road and grabbed it away from me.  I hope he isn't going to be mean to it!
It was a decent, sober, hard-working chicken. -- Fritillary

I am a golem.  I have not been instructed on the proper procedures for dealing with
visiting orcs.  Are they to be admitted or driven off? -- Quinore

I don't think that beggar was polite.  The very act of asking for money is the
essence of not-polite, even if he hadn't threatened me with his pathetic little
dagger. -- Velesten

A few notes about e-mailed personals:

You may submit personal ads, columns, spotlights, etc. electronically, either via e-
mail to ads at reality dot com (which doesn't need any more spam, thank you) or on
the web at http://www.reality.com/duel2/modules.php?name=Ads.  When you submit
something, you should get back a receipt from HAL at RSI.  If you do NOT get a
receipt, your ads may have gone astray (not all e-mail makes it to its destination
any more than all snail mail does).  If you DO get a receipt, it should, in the body
of the message, tell you what arena your stuff was filed in.  Check your receipt to
make sure your submission made it to the intended destination.  Also check to see
that everything you sent made it to the same place.  Sometimes HAL, who is rather
simple-minded in some ways, will send half your stuff to another arena if the name
or number of that arena shows up at the beginning of a line.  So if the word Ti
appears at the beginning of a line halfway through your ads, all the ads after that
may end up in Ti, which is closed and doesn't need ads.  As a side note, sometimes
things move slowly, so don't wait until the last minute to send your ads and all.
If they get held up along the way, they may not show up until next turn.  Happy
writing! -- Ed.

We of the Desolate Empire Alliance want to welcome two managers to our fold.  Kon of
the Empire Rising, and Osiris!  May they be blessed with the blood of their enemies,
and give no quarter in War! -- Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire
