                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of ARDIVENT.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  DEATHTONGUE had 
cause to celebrate, after BERKE got 17 points by beating VETERAN MERCENARY.  KHORNE 
SHADOWSPAWN certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to GNEISS 
GUY and losing 8 points in the process!  In ARDIVENT, nothing is permanent (except 
Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, SOLARIS.  So who's the team that's 
been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me. 
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Justice was served as 
ZACK fought BERNINA COLLIN in bloodfeud.  Well done, HARDTIMESINBABYLON!  Ask not for 
whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in ARDIVENT is the highlight of my life.  More 
important duties call me.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports 
for ARDIVENT?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

arena. -- Gneiss Guy

Down Below -- Hmm, if you can't equal my bathtub monsters, what does that make you?
-- Bernina Collin

have plenty already. -- Flint Hills

28 January 2004
All -- I send out this invitation to all teams and managers.  A new Alliance has been
formed.  The Living Essences Alliance is being formed to join forces in an effort to
eliminate common foes and to help the joined warriors grow and learn to the best of
their abilities by offering suggestions and advice.  It doesn't matter what arena
you're in, or if you're in another alliance already, as of today.  This Alliance is
open to one and all!  If you are interested in joining, please DIPLO me, or send a
personal ad to DM 93's newsletter.  If you wish to join beyond March 2004, send a PA
to DM 82.  Come join the fun! -- Dagan LifeGiver, mgr. Shadow Warriors (DM 93)

28 January 2004
This notice is to formally introduce our young alliance, CHAOS INC.  We consist of
APEX, FLAGG, MATRIX, ASSAMITE, and now RUDE BUDDHA.  If we aren't already there, we
WILL be coming to an arena near you soon!  Hope to see you all at the ZALCON II.

4 February 2004
Greeting from Jhans, DM 36 -- In 2 turns the kLk will host our first annual "St.
Valentines Day Massacre" in Jhans, arena 36.  (Kill Contest)  The contest will begin
on turn 450.  It will run for 10 turns.  On turn 461 the winners will be announced.
There will be 3 separate categories, the team with the most kills, the alliance with
the most kills, and the warrior with the most kills.  For the manager of the team
with the most kills a PRIZE of 10 ROLL-UPS will be rewarded (or $50 deposited into
his account).  No need to declare yourself in the personals.  If you are in DM 36,
you will be part of the contest whether you like it or not.  We encourage as much
trash talk as you'd like.  All teams, managers, and alliances invited.  Please
contact Polarius (mgr. of Blitzkrieg) in DM 36 with questions.  Or you can email me
at jamieptmo@hotmail.com.  Good luck and see you in the sands. -- Polarius
