     Cantex! Cantex! Cantex!  The crowd just cannot seem to get enough of that name.  
Cantex! Cantex!
     It is such a pleasure to be Ardivent's Duelmaster.  Keep up the good work 
everyone by keeping me here.  I love you all.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ARDIVENT games.  Did only my eyes note the 4-1-1 
record which TIDE QB managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record 
will draw challengers!  ARMY HILLS caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as it skillfully bested B. SIMS and was awarded 19 points in recognition.  
In one of the week's more notable duels, ARMY HILLS put down B. SIMS, causing him to 
lose 11 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has CANTEX in the past 
laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week it's proven its combat skill yet 
again.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their 
position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  TIDE QB is feared.  This much I 
can say.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the 
better part of last week avoiding TIDE QB.  Indeed it was FANDILS.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Some say a warrior is judged by the way 
he bears arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!  
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  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
