                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Nothing is certain in ARDIVENT, with changing loyalties, changing 
Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--DUNGEON CELL.  PONY BRIGADE had cause 
to celebrate, after RAINBOW DASH got 13 points by beating FRIENDLY CONSTABLE.  A 
certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 5 
points to BILLY BOY.  (Discrete enough, HERETIC?) Those who hoped for a new 
Duelmaster were disappointed by U. OF E., of FANDILS, who despite a 14-6-2 couldn't 
overcome ARDIVENT's Number 1.  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns 
last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Perhaps the warriors of EXOTIC BLADES should take 
up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  As a woman of good breeding 
scorns the "warriors" of FANDILS, so did that sorry team shy from EXOTIC BLADES If 
challenges were horses, HERETIC could open up a fast food joint!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Can anything 
compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for ARDIVENT?  On that giddy note I 
take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir
