                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ARDIVENT games.  CLAYMORE caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE and was 
awarded 20 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, ETERNITY 
put down JODI BODI, causing her to lose 7 points of recognition in the process.  Due 
to hers absence and inability to defend the throne, WINEHOUSE has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  The city has turned out in honor of CANTEX, for with its arena victory 
it may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  No confirmation, but my 
sources claim that the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  
Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In ARDIVENT "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat 
in ARDIVENT these days is THE 27 CLUB.  At least, most blades in town are looking to 
avoid them.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the 
better part of last week avoiding THE 27 CLUB.  Indeed it was FANDILS.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena 
there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed a 
stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
Till next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise 
are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Congrats to Duelmistress Winehouse of The 27 Club. -- Fandil The Wise
P.S. I made a grave mistake sitting out Cantex to give U Of E a chance at the Title.  
I did not consider the possibility that "other sitter-outers might come into play.  
Bad Fandil!

Winehouse, you beat me fair and square and deserve the Title.  Not only can you fight, 
but you can really, really sing. -- U. of E.

Louis Chauvin, oh where have you been, Louey-Boy, Louey-Boy; oh where have you been 
charming Louis? -- Billy Boy

Nat Jaffe, and another sack for Army Hills! -- Army Hills

Happy Peasant, thanks for the tune-up. (wink) -- Jodi Bodi

Health. Humility. Honor.  Happy New Year to all. -- Fandil The Wise

It is Dec 31.  The Tigers are fighting the Buckeyes near RSI headquarters in Arizona.  
Will the mighty Tigers claw open the Nut?  My prediction ... Clemson 37, Ohio State 
not so much.  Gooooo Tigers! -- WOF

     Pretty accurate prediction! -- Ed
