                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in JURINE!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for ALETHA?  CLAN 
GHOST BEARS' proud of her after beating CONVICTED THIEF and getting 13 points.  Our 
Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to CONVICTED ASSASSIN, BUT LOCKENLOAD is still the 
Duelmaster because he has the most recognition points!  Is the Duelmaster really 
being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All JURINE ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  Hey, warriors get killed by other warriors, not by their manager 
sending them to the Dark Arena.  What's wrong with HALLY BIRD's 3-0-2, CLAN GHOST 
BEARS?  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, that's 
what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  JURINE is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

CALLING ALL THUGS, BRUTES, OGRES, QUARTER HALF WITS, SHALLOW HALBERD ENTHUSIASTS AND
MAUL RATS:  Since the Bashing style has often been maligned in the forums, it is time
to give the style a little tough love with the following concept:  An ALL-BASHER
arena.  The rules are simple--enter the arena as a rookie basher.  That's it.  RSI
said I need to get 20 managers on board and I'm about half way there.  If you are
interested in taking part, PM me in the forums or email me:  chase at accesspr.com
and put D2 in the subject header.

ATTENTION EVERYONE -- In March I am going to do manager lists for all arenas.  This
is part of my ongoing and undoubtedly largely futile attempt to get my lists
organized.  If you think I might not know who you are or if you think I might and
you'd rather I not share that information, let me know this month!  You can e-mail
me at Sue at solberg dash mathews dot com (replacing the at, dash and dot with
appropriate characters.  You can send a diplo to The Saint.  You can put an ad in
the newsletter.  Semaphore doesn't work so well, nor does telepathy. -- The Saint,
