                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt ARDIVENT will ever be the same.  And let's see, CANTEX fought LOUIS CHAUVIN 
and gained 12 points and contributed to FANDILS' 3-2-0.  LOUIS CHAUVIN has lost to 
CANTEX, falling 7 points, while helping make THE 27 CLUB a 3-2-0 turn.  Well done, 
ARDIVENT, the Duelmaster was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Perhaps RUY LOPEZ 
is not as thrilled, being challenged 2 times.  LINCOLN HILLS challenged for the 
Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone WE GOT GAME's warrior.  The attempts 
to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and RUY LOPEZ remains ARDIVENT's top warrior 
for another turn.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes 
their losing fighters do dishes at The Seaside Manor until they win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  WE GOT GAME has cause to stand tall, as they were ARDIVENT's 
most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And avoiding WE 
GOT GAME more than any other team we find FANDILS.  ARDIVENT, are we going to accept, 
or respect this sort of thing?   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover 
or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ARDIVENT and I've a long road ahead of 
me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond the 
Scribe
