                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail ARDIVENT!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, JEROME fought ROCKSOCK JONES and gained 15 points and 
contributed to FANDILS' 2-1-0.  ROCKSOCK JONES has lost to JEROME, falling 9 points, 
while helping make BLUVALLEY WARRIORS a 1-4-0 turn.  Defending hers title for another 
turn, JANIS JOBLIN kept BLUVALLEY WARRIORS' warrior, FINGERS BROOKE, from claiming 
the throne.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources 
that The Victory Tavern uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  BLUVALLEY WARRIORS 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 BLUVALLEY WARRIORS more than any other team we find FANDILS.  ARDIVENT, are 
we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged warrior this 
turn was BLUVALLEY WARRIORS' warrior HEREFORD JONES.  More fighters challenged him 
than challenged the Duelmaster!   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  A brave warrior does not carry a 
red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, ARDIVENT, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls. 
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ARDIVENT and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in ARDIVENT again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
