                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  NIGHTHAWKS?  Who?  HAZAARDS OF CLONING is the 
top team these days, buddies!  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's that for 
a perceptive observation?) as THE CONVICTS can attest...  Good things come to those 
who fight well, as ENROUTE TO ST LOUIS can attest, moving up by 4.  Practice pays for 
ARAM, who pummelled INMATE #418098, to pocket 21 points.  A certain someone should 
cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 17 points to ARAM.  
(Discrete enough, INMATE #418098?) KESTEREL found out that KYR'TERR isn't a 
democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  So who was the warrior 
seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic 
problem...   
     So much to report, so little time!  Perhaps the warriors of THE CONVICTS should 
take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  The warriors of THE 
CONVICTS found their efforts at combat frustrated as ENROUTE TO ST LOUIS apparently 
had more important things to do than fight.  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, 
and JOB is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't THE MUSKETEERS proud!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not for 
whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant 
prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid KYR'TERR farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

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

To all those lookin' for some easy pickins:  I, Elfwine, manager of The Shallowship,
the most feared team in all of Jhelum, invite all who seek wide open spaces for pubs
and other such establishments of limited debauchery, to visit this deserted city and
help me clear up some of the dust.  I'm just about ready to have my guys face off
against each other to get some new action.  Guess I'd better join a tournament or
something...hmmmm, there's a thought.
