                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in ARDIVENT since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Woof!  FANDILS were a 
bunch of dogs after DEATHTONGUE got through with 'em!  3rd ain't so sweet as 1st!  
What's with FRAT PUNK?  He actually beat FANDILS' W. D. PURDY, and walked away with 
25 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at FANDILS.  W. D. PURDY lost 21 points 
to FRAT PUNK.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe W. D. PURDY will provide more 
easy wins...  Apparently ARDIVENT isn't filled with as many gutless wonders as I 
thought.  The Dreaded Duelmaster got 2 challenges this turn!  FANDILS' hatred of 
DEATHTONGUE surfaced again as EARL challenged ARDIVENT's top dog.  Try as he might, 
EARL wasn't good enough at persuading FRAN BRAN to step down from the Duelmaster's 
throne...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some 
team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, DEATHTONGUE!  
The bums at FANDILS couldn't face the challenges from DEATHTONGUE!  No excuse for 
that!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover 
stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
ARDIVENT is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  
Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- 
Olaf Modeen

Congratulations to Fran Bran, a formidable Duelmistress.  Kudos to Technogeek. --
Fandil The Wise

Hey, Technogeek, some of us are wondering why one cannot graduate a ripper after 43
turns?  Can't be the management, can it? -- WOF

Hey, Khisanth, you named your DA "See Ya" just like the controversial "See Ya" that
Tripwire allegedly sent to the DA, but didn't, in the DM47 Turf Wars1?  How neat! --
Fandil The Wise, ever the instigator

Katerina Collin -- All I can say is that girl's night out was fun for me. -- Mildred
leona

Marci Foote -- Ho, ho, ho.  You know what they say ..." Love 'em; leave 'em; and
forget 'em."  What was your name, now? -- W. D. Purdy

Ny shifty eyes were a bit better than yours, Shiftyeyed Volunteer.  I guess it comes
from the praying. -- Monsignor Mark

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  The Red Sands are calling. -- Fandil The Wise

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

Mildred Leona -- How annoying. -- katerina Collin
P.S.  I don't have the energy for more.  It's too cold.

Frat Punk -- Of course, a half-elf.  Totally punkish. -- Mollie Scot

W.D. Purdy -- I'd like to put my foote in your mouth, or maybe your belly, or...
somewhere else. -- Marci Foote

The Major -- You are certainly a good student.  And I like the way you lose.
Impressive. -- Lila Deane

Bobbi Jo -- Hey, great, a woman tall enough I can see her without a telescope!  Let's
do dinner! -- Lou Bigge
P.S.  Did you... just beat me up?  I don't think that's right.

We salute the tourney participants but hope for better representation next time, eh?
