                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt KATI-TEI will ever be the same.  The TOWER OF SNAKES guild has had a 4-1-0 
turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of 
thing can lead.  KATI-TEI welcomes a new team to our ranks, unofficially of course, 
for now.  But welcome nonetheless to WEIRD STUDENTS.  Let's see what you can do.  And 
let's see, FANTASTIC FOE fought POLITE BEGGAR and gained 15 points and contributed to 
WEIRD STUDENTS' 3-2-1.  BAKER'S DOZEN has lost to VENOM DECAY, falling 5 points, 
while helping make LAZY SUNDAY a 2-2-0 turn.  Due to his absence and inability to 
defend the throne, WALKING THE DOG has lost the title of Duelmaster.  We should ask 
VENOM DECAY about the thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster does for a 
warrior, he's now the one to ask.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Welcome Wench uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about 
gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  LAZY SUNDAY has cause to stand tall, as they were KATI-TEI's 
most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And guess who 
avoided LAZY SUNDAY stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was CALL ME JIMMY.  
Anyone surprised?   
     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.  A brave warrior does not carry a 
red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, KATI-TEI, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls. 
Who could ask for more?  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep 
your swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in KATI-TEI again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Folks, I am leaving Duel II for personal reasons.  I have no idea whether I may 
return, but don't count on it.  I will remain active in Lapur (29) and Jade Mountain 
(75), and that's it.  I have enjoyed knowing you.  Fare you well. -- Jorja
