                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ARDIVENT!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with POISED TO KILL?  He 
actually beat BLUVALLEY WARRIORS' FLINT HILLS, and walked away with 14 more points 
from the fight.  Laughs were big at CYNICAL DELUSIONS while they watched POISED TO 
KILL clobber FLINT HILLS.  He lost 12 points and got bruised from objects thrown from 
the stands.  I'm sure ARDIVENT is excited about GNEISS GUY, the new Duelmaster from 
BLUVALLEY WARRIORS.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  Wouldn't 
it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into 
the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being the most challenged warrior, FLINT HILLS!  Don't make idle boasts, they may 
come back to haunt you.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every 
day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  ARDIVENT 
is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Rusted Soul -- Am I a nice guy, or what? -- Gneiss Guy
P.S.  Congratulations.

Eclipse -- Those are, um, like D clips and C clips and stuff?  I never was much good
at, you know, mechanical stuff. -- Debra Collin

Solaris -- Very true, what I said there at the end. -- Flint Hills
P.S.  I've even met more formidable foes in the Bluvalley practice room.

Break Point -- Is that a clear winning record, or what? -- Becker Collin
P.S.  Yeah, Small Arena Syndrome in spades.

Poised to Kill -- Yes, I AM. -- Gneiss Guy

Becker Collin -- Soon it will be me and you here alone, then what will we do?  I
stand still, you hit me for practice while I try and pass grade 5? -- BP

Thank you all for the good times that this arena has to offer.  I was hoping to beat
out my last adversary for most wins by a duelmaster but it looks like it might end up
in a tie depending on how I do in my last fight.  Gneiss Guy, it was a pleasure, and
thanks for that last bunch of skill learns.  Good luck, all. -- Rusted Soul

Debra Collin -- I thought I would give the BA another try, I forgot that's the weapon
you use as well.  It was kind of hard to find a spot to hit, but I seemed to make it
through just enough. -- Eclipse

Palantiriathalasa -- Hmmm, I guess I lucked out on that one.  I haven't been having

that much luck lately, what happened, you hit then, I think you got distracted or
something.  Oh well, give it another try, I will be waiting for the rematch. --
Poised

Ok, this Happy Peasant stuff is getting annoying, bring on the unhappy peasant. --
Vecordius
P.S.  I have a feeling that my next match will be against Becker.
