                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Back on the throne.  A good strategy change by Shelley, I was a little worried
when I saw it.  Luckily I was able to overcome with a minor strategy change of my
own.  Not clear when I'll get my graduation notice.  Shelley needs 3 wins.  I will
get a notice with 3 wins and 5 fights.  Not clear if I can get the commission to give
me an earlier invite or not.
     I'm running late and have to get ready for a fight later today, so this column
ends here!

-- The Cook Messed Up

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon ARDIVENT, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Practice pays for KURT COBAIN, who pummelled 
JOUBERT KLEE, to pocket 24 points.  ANTI-LEAP YEAR certainly had a baffled expression 
on his face, after losing to CORBIN ROSS and losing 12 points in the process!  THE 
COOK MESSED UP found out being ARDIVENT's Duelmaster isn't all nuts and berries, 
receiving 2 challenges!  You could cut the tension with a scimitar as SHELLEY ANN of 
FANDILS met the Duelmaster.  THE COOK MESSED UP successfully staved off a grab for 
the roses by SHELLEY ANN of FANDILS.  Does ARDIVENT have no one talented enough to 
dethrone her?  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and 
ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst 
the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of THE 27 CLUB, alone and unchallenged.  As a 
woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of FANDILS, so did that sorry team shy 
from THE 27 CLUB  
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen 
into an unconscious stupor.   
     All good things must come to an end.  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond 
my control, I must take my leave of this place.  Can anything compare to the pleasure 
of writing Spyreports for ARDIVENT?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny 
Vir
