                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Lawyers!  I hate 'em.  Almost as bad as tax-farmers.

                                     Short Rock

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out JADE MOUNTAIN 
to see what's new.  MVP award for ULRA T'SSAR?  SAND DANCERS' proud of her after 
beating HOZHA ODEMIS and getting 15 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  HOZHA 
ODEMIS' match with ULRA T'SSAR cost her a loss of 10 points!  This Duelmaster is like 
something else!  SHORT ROCK stopped CAPTAIN MONDINOR dead in his tracks!  Is the 
Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  Can SAND 
DANCERS' DONAL PINES be more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is 
that really the same?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All JADE MOUNTAIN ever talks about is 
fighting!  Me, I'm more laid back.  Like was that some Bloodfeud, or what?  (ZAGWE 
BANSHEE vs. DONAL PINES, that is.) Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do? 
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Hsia Fury -- (severely)  You shouldn't become careless!  That is very dangerous,
girl. -- Donal Pines
P.S.  Your hue is...blood-red?

Chamuscar -- I can't quite make out your hue.  Something dark and mysterious.
Midnight blue, or a very dark purple, perhaps?  Hmm, and it would be suitably
highlighted by crystal stars on your cape, I think.  Small ones, just sort of dusted
over it.  Yes, I can see it now.... -- Sernillan

Zagwe Banshee -- Ouch!  You are more cry than hue, aren't you?  My poor ears! -- Ulra
T'ssar

Noachian -- Well, just you and me here.  How often we meet like this. -- Jorja for
the Sand Dancers

Noachian -- Oh, heck.  I didn't register it till I checked the Dead listing.  Really
sorry about Hsia Fury, really.  It isn't like there are any opponents to spare! --
Donal Pines

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
the Empire Rising, and Osiris!  May they be blessed with the blood of their enemies,
and give no quarter in War! -- Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire

11 April 2006
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.
