                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in ARDIVENT this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, KASPAROV fought LORENS KLU 
and gained 18 points and contributed to WE GOT GAME's 2-1-0.  HEREFORD JONES has lost 
to CAPABLANCA, falling 5 points, while helping make BLUVALLEY WARRIORS a 2-3-0 turn.  
Well done, ARDIVENT, the Duelmaster was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Perhaps 
DEATHSCAR is not as thrilled, being challenged 2 times.  The attempts to dethrone the 
Duelmaster have failed, and DEATHSCAR remains ARDIVENT's top warrior for another 
turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The 
Seaside Manor uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  THE 27 CLUB has cause to stand 
tall, as they were ARDIVENT's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a 
team to beat.  And guess who avoided THE 27 CLUB stable the most?  Believe it or not, 
it was WE GOT GAME.  Anyone surprised?   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their 
enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in ARDIVENT, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in ARDIVENT again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Deathscar -- Congrats on your Duelmastership.  You are a fine warrior. -- Fandil The
Wise

Humpf.  Deathscar, that does not mean I won't be trying to defeat you.  I am hoping
to try again right away.  Beware! -- Casper John
P.S.  Round 1 to Deathscar; round 2 to CJ; I'm just sayin".

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  The Red Sands await. -- Fandil The Wise

Blind Owl -- Malevolence?!?  What did I ever do to you? -- Capablanca, introverted
for a reason

Hereford Jones -- Again, with the learns.  SERIOUSLY?!? -- NIMZOVICH

Freaky Tah -- Never heard of you.  Until now.  I've decided that I don't like you. --
Kasparov

Patience, Ardivent.  Patience!  Ruy Lopez will be here in November.  As will Polgar.
And then We Got Game will be back at full strength. -- Chess Master

Chess Master -- If you won't take it amiss, and nobody else has mentioned it yet, a
regular visit to the DM 93 Newsletter on the RSI website might be of use to you. --
Jorja

Mildred Leona -- I did, and I enjoyed it. -- Hereford Jones

Kasparov -- It was my best riposte, I saved it for you. -- Brooke Jones

Two-three, and one of the wins being over a standby.  Not our favorite kind of turn,
but hey, nobody died! -- Hereford Jones

Nimzovich -- You remind me why I never play tennis. -- Hereford Jones

Earl -- Thanks for making my day! -- Rocksock Jones
P.S.  Hereford isn't really my brother, you know.  Not kin at all.  He's a golem and
we're not.  That tells you.

Winehouse -- Devastated... yes, I would say so.  I feel like I've been hit with
twenty-seven clubs.  All at once. -- Lorens Klu

Pigpen -- Eh?  What?  You mean you're not...?  I never would have guessed. -- Billy
Joe

That Constable!  What a PUSHY, GRABBY person! -- Brooke Jones
P.S.  I didn't know he was THAT kind of guy.
