                                      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.  BLADE DEMONS?  
Who?  BLUVALLEY WARRIORS is the top team these days, buddies!  Nothing works for a 
team like victory (How's that for a perceptive observation?) as BLUVALLEY WARRIORS 
can attest...  Practice pays for FLINT HILLS, who pummelled SOLARIS, to pocket 17 
points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after 
losing 9 points to FLINT HILLS.  (Discrete enough, SOLARIS?) RUSTED SOUL successfully 
staved off a grab for the roses by GNEISS GUY of BLUVALLEY WARRIORS.  Does ARDIVENT 
have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  So who was the warrior seen charging 
into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     So much to report, so little time!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in 
CYNICAL DELUSIONS are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  As 
a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of BLADE DEMONS, so did that sorry 
team shy from CYNICAL DELUSIONS If challenges were horses, BECKER COLLIN could open 
up a fast food joint!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of 
writing Spyreports for ARDIVENT?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Eclipse -- I stepped out onto the sands, and suddenly all was dark!  Since Leeta
never sends warriors to the Dark Arena, I figure that must have been your doing.
Clever, and confusing.  I was helpless. -- Flint Hills

M. Chardinee, what a guy.  I hope he slips in a patch of spilled beer and breaks his
neck. -- Gneiss Guy

It's a sad thing when our veterans, even the mercenaries, have to fight in the arena
to keep body and soul together.  Although in some cases, you have to wonder whether
they actually HAVE a soul.... -- Valley-Jo

Break Point -- Gosh, you actually had one!  Albendranious. -- Debra Collin

Balrog -- You're some kind of demon?  It doesn't show. -- Becker Collin

Poised -- I'm glad to hear that.  I like being alive, myself. -- Gneiss Guy
P.S.  And it's great to have someone actually write me a personal!

Rusted Soul -- Gosh, that is totally uncool!  How can we help? -- Debra Collin

Break Point -- Well, whatever works for you, I guess I can live with it. -- Becker
Collin

Vecordius -- Wear armor.  It really does make a difference. -- the Bluvalley Warriors
P.S.  We generally aim for the arms, except where really clumsy, in which case we go
for the legs.  I.e. non-vitals.

Amendment for "Fratsfas Quest for the Best!"
     Managers that have teams already established in Fratsfa need not have (3) three
warriors in the initiates.  FE will NOT be a factor.  Stables may be entered at any
time.  Just announce your stable in the p-ads.
     ***************************************************************************
     This in my invitation to all managers  who wish to prove their mettle against
managers from all over Alastari.  We have limited TP's in this contest to one a team
at a time.  We DO NOT want this contest to become a scum fest as many others have,
hence the Andorian arena.  Good luck to all who come to prove their skills.  "May
your enemies' blood flow freely" -- Dark Knight Toker, Desolate Empire Alliance
