                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon ARDIVENT, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Nothing is certain in ARDIVENT, with changing 
loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--FANDILS.  BLUVALLEY 
WARRIORS posted a nice gain, to come in 2nd.  Everybody loves a winner...  SERPENT'S 
HOLD had cause to celebrate, after SERPENTITO got 20 points by beating FRAN BRAN.  
Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, EARL was winsome, after beating OLIVER and 
seeing him lose 11 points.  Like a flirtacious debutante, ARDIVENT's Duelmaster 
BROTHER JEROME found himself the man of the hour, being "invited to dance" 4 times!  
You could cut the tension with a scimitar as BETTY of DEATHTONGUE met the Duelmaster. 
Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by BETTY, of DEATHTONGUE, who 
despite a 20-18-0 couldn't overcome ARDIVENT's Number 1.  Word has it one team in 
ARDIVENT is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys 
in FANDILS are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  The 
warriors of FANDILS found their efforts at combat frustrated as DEATHTONGUE 
apparently had more important things to do than fight.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in ARDIVENT is the highlight of my life.  Keep those 
sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing 
Spyreports for ARDIVENT?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Congratulations to Khisanth's Rattler who graduates as an immortal just in time for
the Orlando Face.  Kudos. -- Fandil The Wise

Technogeek -- Look at that stylemaster list!  You own it!  Thanks for letting us
sneak one name in.  (chuckle) -- WOF

Katerina Collin -- Wow!  I really, really feel good about beating you, since you took
me to the cleaners just last round.  I like going shopping far better than going to
the cleaners.  (wink) -- Yvonne

Fran Bran -- Just what Yvonne said to Katerina, but I don't understand all that
shopping and cleaning stuff.  I have to add that I do love fighting you for you are a
real challenge. -- Earl

Tania Park -- Whew! -- Brother Jerome

Well, Uncle Bob did his best, but he was "barely slain" by Dark Champion.  Does that
mean he is barely dead or alive? -- Fandil The Wise

     Yep.

Mr. Khisanth -- I am sorry to hear of the demise of Copperhead.  He looked like a
great one.  The Red Sands of Ardivent strike again. -- Fandil The Wise

Good luck to anyone going to Orlando.  (no Fandils)  Bring home some honors to The
Red Sands. -- WOF

Brother Jerome -- I see your strategy now, get me tired enough and I won't notice the
condition of the road, hmm?  I choose to believe it well intentioned, but I'm not
leaving Ardivent.  Who'd want to go to the Isle?  It's crowded, and I don't do
crowded. -- Tania Park

Snorky -- Oh, this was my day, what?  Maybe I'm ready to get back into the old bun-
fight. -- Bingo Little
P.S.  Thank you, my good chappie, you've bucked me up no end.

Yvonne -- Darned half-humans!  Pushy. -- Katerina Collin

Copperhead -- Too bad you're a golem.  A woman with hair that color would be
something to see, but a golem with, well, I suppose it's a sort of helmet or skull
dome or something, made of copper... eh. -- Tongan Burke
P.S.  Shoot, I didn't realize I'd decommissioned you.  Sorry about that, even a golem
likely has a right to continued operation.  I guess I don't know my own strenght.

The Shiftyeyed Volunteer was no problem.  Bring me more like that, and things will be
fine. -- Mollie Scot

Our congratulations to Ratler. -- Jorja and the Bluvalley Warriors
