                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Nothing is certain in ARDIVENT, with changing 
loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--SERPENT'S HOLD.  
What's a move up by 4 you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for 
celebration, according to BLUVALLEY WARRIORS.  SERPENT'S HOLD had cause to celebrate, 
after CORAL got 15 points by beating M. CHARDINEE.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of 
which, SERPENTITO was winsome, after beating KATERINA COLLIN and seeing her lose 3 
points.  Can you believe it?  MILDRED LEONA apparently has better things to do as 
ARDIVENT's Duelmaster than show up and fight!  What can be a greater victory?  
KEELBACK has taken its place as the top, as ARDIVENT's new Duelmaster.  So who was 
the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's 
got a basic problem...   
     And how sociable are ARDIVENT's warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  More important duties call me.  ARDIVENT, I leave 
you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Seaside Manor.  'Til next 
time-- Novgorodny Vir

Well, lads, looks like I'm going to have to take a break for a while.  I'll be back
after I either get a job or win the lottery.  Take care till then. -- Technogeek!

Huh, this time, we are NOT significantly on the move.  And considering that the
listing even showed a downward movement in one case, that does not speak well for our
efforts.  And we WERE making an effort.  Just... other people were making a greater
one.  Bummer. -- the Bluvalley Warriors

Assur -- Maybe the kill rate is relatively low, but they seem to be killing MY
gladiators.  Of course, some of it's the darned standbys.  Really annoying. -- Jorja
P.S.  As someone, Merlin?, observed, however, if they'd just WIN more, they wouldn't
die so much.

Ron Burgundy -- Well, that's going to get the boss on my case.  Even if you have
hidden tourney fights, she's going to have me out there practicing more.  I hate
practicing! -- Mollie Scot

What Water? -- I dunno, I think it's over the dam by now. -- Marci Fotte

Earl -- We should stop meeting like this.  Jorja actually uttered a Bad Word! --
Katerina Collin
P.S.  Well, two words that taken together are bad:  she said "Dark Arena."  What if
she means it?  She's been... odd lately.

Antler -- Well, damn. -- Lila Deane

Monsignor Mark -- And that wraps of an oh-fer turn for us.  Bread and water at our
house this week, I bet. -- Long Biggar

18 March 11
All -- Be aware of the comeback of the Cajun and his stables of gladiators!  Just
sayin' -- The Cajun
