Greetings, Veastian,

     I wasn't expecting on getting the throne, especially after my defeat from
Vahnzur.  I will not be fighting next turn as my invite is too close.  I want to
fight in one more basic tourney before I graduate.  Congrats to whomever takes the
throne.

                                             Not ready to graduate,
                                                       Handow (mgr. Sceptre)

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
VEASTIAN.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  WOLF 
RIDERS is no joke as it posted a 3-0-0 week advancing from 2nd place to 2nd place.  
Hey everybody, watch out for STILJANZ, who flew up 17 points in the rankings after 
mashing FRATSFA SLAVE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days 
it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  GRINIAN was subdued by DART and drops 4 
points.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was 
BADLANDS' HANDOW, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by RAYEK.  An apple a 
day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Here is other news that is of note.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Remember:  alliances are great, 
but try and take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in VEASTIAN have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Okay, so I may not be the 
world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been 
real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Sorry no personals last time, we were moving house. -- The Family

Handow -- Good work snagging the hot seat, and may you survive to follow me to the
Isle. -- Vahnzur

Nothing but Userous Merchants and Dangerous Criminals?  That's boring! -- The Family

ATTENTION ALL YOU ALLIANCE-TYPE PEOPLE:
For the purposes of tourney newsletter alliance listings (when I am able to do them),
you may only be listed in ONE alliance.  In other words, you have to choose!  If you
are a part of Englebert's Alliance and Englebert's Alliance is "part" of Ruthrauf's
Alliance, I will list you EITHER as part of Englebert's Alliance OR as part of
Ruthrauf's Alliance, NOT both.  The default would be the top-level alliance,
Ruthrauf's, in this example.  If you'd rather be listed separately, let me know and I
will do so, but that will be the only listing you get. -- The Saint, keeper of ever-
more-complicated lists

The Company of Brothers (TCB) welcomes two new members to our alliance...Liam the
Goth and Buddy Lee.  We have no doubt that they will prove to be assets to our
alliance and the general dueling community. -- Baphomet, co-founder, T.C.B.
