                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
ARDIVENT.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for YVONNE, who flew up 14 points in the rankings after mashing 
MOLLIE SCOT like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  And falling like a basher in 
the top ten was MOLLIE SCOT, who dropped 13 points after a disappointing (to say the 
least) bout with YVONNE.  EARL got through to the Duelmaster this turn.  No doubt he 
was more than anxious to kick KEELBACK's tail out of the throne!  Going for the gusto 
and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was FANDILS' EARL, who was turned away 
from the Duelmastership by KEELBACK.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an 
onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the ARDIVENT arena.  Did you 
hear that SERPENT'S HOLD was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of SERPENT'S HOLD's warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo 
me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause FANDILS beats feet every time SERPENT'S 
HOLD smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  And who is this EARL you ask, with 91 points 
and a 17-7-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Knowing when to use the right 
tactics at the proper time is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in ARDIVENT have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  Hasta la bye-bye.  (Loud choruses of 'Beat 
it, ya bum!')-- The Unknown Spymaster

Congratulations to Duelmaster Keelback, a fine warrior. -- Fandil The Wise

Well done, Technogeek.  You are on a roll, now, and I am in a slump.  Good luck to
you. -- WOF

     If he's on a jelly roll, that could be messy.

Marci Foote -- Well, I challenged, but I guess I stuck my foot in my mouth, or maybe
someone else did it for me? -- W. D. Purdy

Kung-Fu Master -- I beat you?  An aimer?!  Hurray! -- Earl

     Think of it as a New Year's gift. -- Sholdifain, Master of Kung-Fu

Katerina -- You surely put it to me, you Amazon lady, you.  Kudos. -- Mildred Leona

Honest Merchant -- Thanks for being there.  I need all the easy wins I can get. --
Yvonne

     Any time, fair lady. -- Kalbin Silverhand

Frat Punk -- Grrr.  I dislike fraternity guys.  The Boss was an SAE, and not a very
good one at that. -- Monsignor Mark

Keelback and Khisanth -- We anxiously await your Duelmaster Column. -- Fandil The
Wise and The Fandils

W.D. Purdy -- I wasn't prepared to give you so much as an INCH, much less... Marci
Foote
P.S.  You could be less grudging.  I won that fair and square.

Coral -- You're a pretty thing, but pretty is as pretty does. -- Mollie Scot

The Major -- Wow, here I thought all I was good at was losing!  Shows how little I
know. -- Lila Deane

Mildred Leona -- This has been a totally freaky day for us, and you have put the
gold-plated cap on.  A four-oh turn!  Probably a good thing our new member hasn't
shown up yet, or he'd have lost. -- Katerina Collin
