                                      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 NIGHTBRINGER?  ZOMBIE SQUAD's proud of her after 
beating JANDINA and getting 15 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  KASTENMAR 
got smashed by QUEEN, and lost 5 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being 
unfair?  I think WATERLOO should let LENSI TU be Duelmaster for a while, without 
fighting about it.  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  
Don't ask me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Hey you guys, don't you think your 
families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  JADE MOUNTAIN is like such a dump, and you guys smell too 
much!  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

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. --

Waterloo -- Same old same old.  I guess it was a good fight, at least the skills will
be useful. -- Mondekker

Downer -- No lie.  You don't DO anything, don't go out with the rest of us for a beer
after the fights, don't sit on a rock and brood, don't talk to anybody....  How you
going to make friends like that? -- Kastenmar

It's almost an insult to be matched against a standby ranked so far below me.  It
isn't like there are no standbys at higher rankings. -- Lensi Tu

The Bartender -- Well, of COURSE I don't want a drink!  You seriously damaged my
kidneys. -- Jandina

I do not comprehend the purpose of the Standbys.  Why do they fight?  Why do we fight
them?  Why does anybody fight? -- Green Rock

We salute the tourney participants and congratulate Waterloo on graduating. -- Jorja
and the Sand Dancers
