                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of VALAMANTIS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team HILLTOP GURUS was 
unseated this week as OUT OF CONTROL moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 4-1-0 record for the round.  Did only my eyes note the 4-1-2 record which 
MIDDLE WAY 10 managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record will draw 
challengers!  STANLY MILLGRAM caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission 
as he skillfully bested TRAINING BUDDHA and was awarded 24 points in recognition.  In 
one of the week's more notable duels, STANLY MILLGRAM put down TRAINING BUDDHA, 
causing him to lose 18 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his absence and 
inability to defend the throne, WHITE WIZARD has lost the title of Duelmaster.  This 
time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail THE PLAGUE, Duelmaster of 
VALAMANTIS!  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, 
the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city VALAMANTIS.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  HILLTOP GURUS is feared.  This much I can say.  Apparently 
the stalwarts of DISASTERS are catching the bulk of jests down at the challenging 
board for their large share of the avoids.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  My sources at OUT OF CONTROL stable 
claim they've never seen the guild bitterer.  This as a result of the untimely demise 
of WILLIAM JAMES.  Beware GILBERN JUSS!  My hearty congratulations GILBERN JUSS, for 
thy revenge upon WILLIAM JAMES, slayer of thy fallen comrade.  Next time he will know 
better, eh?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is 
only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in VALAMANTIS.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  More than a sharp eye must I 
keep, indeed a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari 
await me!  Till next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  
The wise are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

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. --

Training Buddha -- You aren't getting that "serenity" thing at all.  Too much
violence.  Relax already. -- Gilfmet Ivers

Monolith -- Shouldn't I have some kind of violent enlightenment in your presence?
And I do NOT mean by being hit upside the head with a bone, either.  C'mon, I'm
supposed to make some kind of major advance here! -- Imrom Llews

B.F. Skinner -- "Out of control" is no lie.  You're nuts.  I always knew it. --
