                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail ARDIVENT!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for 
WENSINWASIN 1234, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 5 into 9th.  BASH BROS. 
WAITRESS stable has parlayed this turn's 2-0-0 into a 3 space move up the rankings.  
This brings them up to 4th place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, BLACK BILE fought 
LONG BIGGAR and gained 25 points and contributed to AZURE CLOUDS' 1-4-0.  LONG BIGGAR 
has lost to BLACK BILE, falling 17 points, while helping make BLUVALLEY WARRIORS a 
2-3-0 turn.  Due to hers absence and inability to defend the throne, SHELLEY ANN has 
lost the title of Duelmaster.  And all eyes were on DOMINATION this turn as he 
ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  ARDIVENT has a new victor!  Can someone 
confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at 
The Victory Tavern until they win.  Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  BLUVALLEY WARRIORS has cause to stand tall, 
as they were ARDIVENT's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And guess who avoided BLUVALLEY WARRIORS stable the most?  Believe it or not, 
it was AZURE CLOUDS.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that MARCI 
FOOTE from BLUVALLEY WARRIORS was ARDIVENT's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  We'd like to remind certain teams 
not to rob the graves of their enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered 
rude.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ARDIVENT and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in ARDIVENT again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Fandil -- I'm making the mother of all combacks.  1-3. -- slugbait

Black Bile -- Even if I had brought you water, I don't think you could get clean. --
What Water?

Corbin Ross -- This is only a temporary position for me.  My career is on the way up
and I will soon be serving at a much better place than this dump! -- The Cook Messed
Up

Sorry no personals last time.  I was sick, and the gladiators won't write on their
own.  Lazy idiots. -- Jorja

Rocksound -- Odd, the Commission thinks I can't take much. -- Arlene Ross
P.S.  Maybe it's quality armor.

Orange -- But riposting is so unfeminine! -- Long Biggar

Black Bile -- That's 'cause I don't know anything. -- Joubert Klee

Vi Orange -- Those announcers!  I was *not* trying to kill you.  I wouldn't do that.
But I think it's only fair that I devastated you.  After all, you just have to look
at me and flutter your beard and you devastate me! -- Long Biggar

Shelley Ann -- Looking good, girl!  Next thing we know, you'll have a winning record.
-- Marci Foote

The Cook Messed Up -- No lie!  I don't think I've ever been that sick to my stomach
before. -- Corbin Ross

Snuffy -- You gotta fight someone shorter, guy.  This isn't working for you. --
Joubert Klee

Rocksound -- Um, what kind of sound are we listening for here?  A crack?  A clunk?
Maybe a slither of sliding talus?  Gimme a clue! -- Arlene Ross
P.S.  Maybe we could syncopate something.
