                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to ILLIS once again!  Biff!  Pow!  ILLIS watched with glee as 
ISLANDERS got knocked off top spot by VINCERE AUT MORI!  Phhbltt!  Too much drinking 
and too little dodging gave ISLANDERS a 2-3-0!  I got a good laugh out of it!  Ya 
gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the 
pain!  HANGOVERS is now ranked 3rd with a 4-0-0 turn.  It seems so recently people 
were saying CHAPEL ROCK was washed up, finished.  But 3-1-0 moved them up 0.  I guess 
they're washed no more...  What's with RED RED WINE?  It actually beat ILLIS' DOOMIE 
JUGGERNAUT, and walked away with 14 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at 
HANGOVERS while they watched FLAMING MOE clobber ROSE SHELL.  She lost 8 points and 
got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  ILLIS has a Duelmaster who doesn't 
sit back and get lazy.  She challenged ISLANDERS' DUFF (8-95-0), which should prove 
(ahem!) interesting.  Try as he might, DUFF wasn't good enough at persuading SOUL 
SCOURGE to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  I suppose you want to hear some 
rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  ILLIS 
thinks ISLANDERS and their 187-315-8 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, 
give up...  Management must be dealin', as the boys at VILE REAVERS ain't reelin'!  
ISLANDERS' mad!  What do people see in WIMPIRA?  Hers 21-15-1?  ISLANDERS ain't 
talkin', but she's got 79 points.  Keep challenging up 34 points, ALUCIEA THE BOLD, 
and I won't have to write about you much longer.  WIMPIRA always accepts those kind 
of challenges...  ALUCIEA THE BOLD bested WIMPIRA (ALUCIEA THE BOLD getting 30 
points, too!)--Ooh baby!  Now dat I likes!  Taunt your opponent JULIUS CAESAR ZUL!  
That was my lucky charm when I was unfairly challenged.  (and by 19 points!)  BOTTOM 
FEEDER should have an easy win.  BOTTOM FEEDER won victory over JULIUS CAESAR ZUL.  
VINCERE AUT MORI calls this fighting?  In my day...   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting 
younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
ILLIS 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

One Two Many - Keep the challenges coming!  As long as I don't die, I don't mind the
losses. - Hezrou

Soul Scourge -- Good work!  We wouldn't want ME to have the title, after all.
Besides, I've done it.  Now, I just want to stay alive long enough to get six more
wins.  That isn't asking too much, is it?  After all, I'm being restrained, not down-
challenging to get "easy" wins or anything.  I'm taking whatever comes, right?  So...
don't kill me?  I don't want to be killed now.  Well, I never did, but especially not
now, when all I need are six wins and then I could be the warrior with the worst
record at graduation, even beating out that disgusting golem, Life of Osksi. -- Duff
P.S.  A humble ambition, but my own.

Doomie Juggernaut -- Worthless fool. -- Wimpira

H'Aluciea the Bold -- That was NOT nice. -- Ghost h'of 'Ammer 'Ead
P.S.  H'especially the part where you buried me h'in the sand.  Cruel, that was.

(C)ee (J)ay -- I hope some woodpecker GETS you when you crawl back into your
woodwork. -- Rose Shell

Julius Caesar Zul -- Just so you know:  it isn't all beer and dead standbys. -- Kona
Quail

Royal Family Zul -- Ah...you do realize that Illis is an island, don't you? -- Nick,
Islanders
P.S.  About...ten miles across, tops.
P.P.S.  As in, difficult to approach by caravan.

Nazareth -- (blink)  I do?  Who?  And how?  Is this good, or otherwise? -- Duff

Pond Scum -- I need to go to sleep the night before a fight. -- Tiberius Zul

Punch Drunk -- Ok.  Two out of three. -- Yirunta Zul

Lord Protector Soul Scourge and Lady Protector Wimpira -- There are no lands
available for bestowing on gladiators here, because everybody who possesses lands
(such as the rich and noble) points out (very pointedly, sometimes) that it was Lady
Greywand who made the offer, not them, so the land must come from her.  Ask her about
it when you get to the Isle. -- Tarin Selah, arena complex manager

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
