                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ARDIVENT brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Now let's all watch BLUVALLEY 
WARRIORS' heads swell from their 4-0-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big 
talk, big deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see KATERINA COLLIN win a 
fight and gain 23 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, KATERINA COLLIN beat MILDRED LEONA and 
MILDRED LEONA lost 14 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  KEELBACK challenged 
ARDIVENT's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And it's out with the old, in with 
the new, as KEELBACK takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster. 
Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of 
these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
ARDIVENT, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  DEATHTONGUE the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like FANDILS avoided 
them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  
KEELBACK was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM 
insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  We're all going to die in the end, so why 
worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in ARDIVENT to get a drink than The Victory 
Tavern!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide
