                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  MEDAL OF HONOR 26 seems to have it's eye on the 
top team spot, and if they continue having 3-2-0 weeks they may get it!  Most new 
teams do poorly at first.  CULT OF THE SUN, however, has gotten off to a reasonable 
start at 2-3-0.  Nice job!  Hey everybody, watch out for CHOCK, who flew up 15 points 
in the rankings after mashing NOBLE ASSASSIN like a melon.  Keep your eye on this 
guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was FRITILLARY, who dropped 8 points 
after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with RUTHLESS JAYWALKER.  Well, 
everybody's pal 5 GOT PICKED moved his record to 12-0-1 by defeating SATURN in the 
Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 9 recognition points.  Can you believe they are 
paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the KATI-TEI arena.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Knowing when to use the right tactics at the proper time 
is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, there's the manager of the KATI-TEI giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown 
Spymaster

elders! -- Saturn
P.S.  The sand.  Bad move.  Alienated the crowd, which loves me.

I do not accept visits from orcs.  They're pushy and they eat too much. -- Chock

I feel so sorry about the Ambitious Guard!  He isn't at all suited to this life, and
yet he keeps trying.  I fear he may have had an unhappy childhood. -- Fritillary

Shiftyeyed Volunteers are just as bad as Polite Beggars.  Potential thieves, every
one. -- Velesten

Why did the Friendly Constable keep putting his arm around me?  This is not a

reasonable action in the middle of the fight.  I believe he was trying to trick me
somehow. -- Quinore
P.S.  There is nothing in my basic programming about this!

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,
