                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  ARDIVENT needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for 
OLIVER?  DEATHTONGUE's proud of him after beating CELIA RANDELL and getting 21 
points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  SERPENTITO got smashed by ROSEBUD, and lost 
8 points!  And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh 
well, welcome BROTHER JEROME.  Aren't FANDILS proud.  (Oh, my.) I hear the top team 
insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for 
PR photos.   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  FANDILS was ARDIVENT's most avoided team.  Is there 
some award for that?  I don't know what SERPENT'S HOLD's been doing.  They certainly 
haven't been accepting many fights from FANDILS, that's fer sher.  Can SERPENT'S 
HOLD's SABRE be more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really 
the same?  For sure, I was holding my breath when I found out FRAN BRAN challenged 
BINGO LITTLE.  After all, haven't DEATHTONGUE and BLUVALLEY WARRIORS had a long 
standing duel in ARDIVENT?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but BINGO 
LITTLE wants me to write about it since he beat FRAN BRAN.  Satisfied?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  ARDIVENT is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby 
Tonte

                                     PERSONAL ADS

Khisanth -- Way to go, Fella!  Another big turn at 3-0.  Great point gain.
Duelmaster and great warriors everywhere.  Taking over Ardivent?  Fandils and
Deathtongue are passe'?  Kudos. -- Fandil The Wise

Celia Randell -- I guess you were simply too much woman for li'l ole me. -- Mildred
Leona

Kung-Fu Master -- Beaten by BOTH a basher and a total parry?  My!  Perhaps you should
go back to the movies? -- Uncle Bob and Brother Jerome

     The bookies bribed me to take the losses. -- Sholdifain, Master of Kung-Fu

Rattler -- Er ah, Ratler, I submit to your greatness.  You are the better warrior. --
Lily Catherine

Fratsfan Noble -- Thanks for allowing me to remain undefeated as I head into The
Mailer.  Time for a short rest from the arena. -- Earl

     Enjoy it.  We don't all get them. -- Torandj d'Alcon, Fratsfan Noble

Lily Catherine was an unusual slasher for me.  Born 5-9-13-20-19-10-8 as a great
burner, she was +4 Init and -4 Attack.  Bumping to 7-9-13-21-21-10-9 did leave good
damage and good endurance, and she found her weapon of choice.  (SH@ 43/173/3 with 2
kills).  We shall see what her favorites bring.  As she moves on to retirement, I
shall miss her. -- Fandil The Wise

No kills!  We may yet be getting control of The Red Sands!  Health.  Humility.
Honor! -- WOFa

All -- I am sorry, but The Fandils will probably miss the 4-3-10 round.  Good luck to
all.  See you shortly. -- Fandil The Wise

Snorky -- Well, I suppose you being a neuter golem explains why you make those rude
and disgusting noises in the back of your nose.  You don't care if you put off the
women. -- Tania Park

Betty -- Oh, I say, old crumpet, have you been slimming or something?  You don't seem
up to your usual vigor. -- Bingo Little

Sabre -- Darned serpent!  You take the win, five skills, a rating, and you just SMILE
about it.  Well, to be honest, I'd smile, too, in your place. -- Mungo Burke

Fran Bran -- In return for five skills, I don't mind the loss.  In fact, if I could
be sure of getting five skills every time I lost (which means no dying, mind!), I'd
be willing to lose a lot. -- Katerina Collin

Mildred Leona -- While I did appreciate the way you stood there and invited my
attacks, I feel compelled to suggest more vigor on your part.  I know I'm going to
regret that, but... there it is. -- Celia Randel

Brother Jerome -- That's why.  The crowd likes implications. -- Tania Park

Our congratulations to Lily Catherine. -- Jorja and the Bluvalley Warriors
