                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Sometimes I really wonder about that Chardinee Society.  What are they UP to?
They penetrate all Alastari, they train their members to fight, and they keep their
mouths closed about goals.  I find this suspicious.

                                    Lilas Keeler

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ERINIKA brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  If this keeps up, MONGOL HORDE, 
you'll have to shine swords instead of use them.  A drop of 6 in the rankings?  
MYSTERIOUS turned their 0-0-0 turn into a 9th place rank in the listings this turn.  
Any better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 4-1-0 is 
nice, but don't get cocky, MIDDLE WAY 18, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are 
proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see MRS. POTATOE HEAD win a fight 
and gain 17 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, DANGEROUS CRIMINAL beat L8R and L8R lost 8 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, ERINIKA may 
be getting bland, as LILAS KEELER stays top dog in the city.  The Warty Toad, humph!  
I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From ERINIKA's 
trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ERINIKA's 
morgue.  More variety.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate 
catches up with you sooner that later?   
     What does the ERINIKA arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad 
to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

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. --

Salunji of Jurine, sometimes Peevish Gigolo -- If it annoys you so much to be called
the "Venomous Concubine," why not petition the Commission for a change? -- Salinda
Renn

     This is a joke, right?  The Commission doesn't listen.

Elovas ap Resley, Veteran Mercenary -- If you hadn't stopped in the middle of the
fight to sing about it, you might have won.  Then again, maybe not. -- Ultor Tak

R U Dmb -- Sorry, I don't speak your language. -- Panama Oats
P.S.  and I don't want to.

Bbiab -- I have to agree with Panama on that. -- Sarmino Tielo
