                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, VEASTIAN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, WARRIORS OF STEEL, since IS 
THAT A CLUE? took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see BOOT PRINT win a fight and gain 11 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, DANGEROUS CRIMINAL beat TORN CLOTH and TORN CLOTH lost 12 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as 
VAISTINIE takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh. 
Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys 
win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only 
shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the VEASTIAN arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see 
the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

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. --
Tripwire

Daniel Silverlock -- My deepest thanks.  I'm glad to get out from under that. --
Vaistinie

Jonas Switchblade -- Blade's too short, I had the range on you. -- Kenseljo

Boot Print -- How do I know?  It's on my back and I can't see it. -- Baibar

Odd Draft -- Yep, a clue for sure.  Means the weatherstripping's gone. -- Kirvinj

Alvernon Strongaxe -- What's this?  We've gone 3-2?  That's dangerous.  Although,
maybe not TOO dangerous. -- Melanji
P.S.  We're trying to avoid taking Top Team.

We salute the tourney participants and wish they'd show up HERE. -- Jorja and the
Family
