                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  ARDIVENT needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Like, FANDILS had to 
be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by THE 27 CLUB!  Way to go THE 27 
CLUB!  MVP award for SNUFFY?  FANDILS' proud of him after beating WHAT WATER? and 
getting 15 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  ARLENE ROSS' match with UNCLE 
JUNIOR cost her a loss of 10 points!  Like THE 27 CLUB's ANTI-LEAP YEAR is sweating 
since he got challenged by Duelmaster VIOLENT ORANGE!  And I was just getting used to 
the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome ANTI-LEAP YEAR.  Aren't THE 27 
CLUB proud.  (Oh, my.) Who was the wiseguy that said ARDIVENT's Duelmaster was paying 
for drinks at The Seaside Manor?  Don't look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  BLUVALLEY 
WARRIORS was the most avoided team.  Is a 704-1064-21 record really that scary?  I 
don't know what FANDILS' been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many 
fights from BLUVALLEY WARRIORS, that's fer sher.  Like, is JIMI HENDRIX popular, or 
what?  He was challenged the most in all of ARDIVENT!  He's got a 4-7-0, is that 
good?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed 
up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  I had a fun 
time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Well, well well.  Violent Orange is Duelmaster.  A salute to Azure Blue and Manager
Slugbait. -- Fandil The Wise

What Water?  Violent Orange?  Only in Ardivent, Arena Of The Red Sands, can a basher
and a piker square off for The Duelmaster Crown.  Kudos all. -- WOF

Arlene Ross -- That hurt!  I jinxed myself bragging about my .500 record last turn,
and the gods rewarded me.  Fandil told me not to do it, but I just felt the need to
Swirv! -- Swirvin' Irvin

The Honest Merchant -- Is this your second job?  Well, then, don't give up your
first. -- Uncle Junior

Corbin Ross -- I thought you had me there.  Great match. -- Snuffy

Kurt Cobain -- Lucky me.  Usually your style eats me up.  I must have had garlic for
lunch?  Anyway, thanks. -- Shelley Ann

One more win!  One more win!  I need one more win. -- Shelley Ann

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  The Red Sands await. -- Fandil The Wise

Bluvalley Warriors

Fandil -- No, it was a fluke. -- Tria Skathach

Uncle Junior -- Of course it hurt!  This is the Arena of the Red Sands. -- Arlene
Ross

Blue Note -- Not my color, but it could've been worse.  It could've been very red all
over. -- Tria Skathach

Snuffy -- Everyone gets lucky sometimes, I guess.  But only once!  Next time is mine.
-- Corbin Ross
P.S.  I don't think you really needed those skills.

Irvin -- Oops!  You swirved right into that one. -- Arlene Ross

Jimi Hendrix -- That was wild. -- Joubert Klee

Jim -- I can't believe you could be THAT MEAN to me. -- Fingers Brooke
P.S.  What else is there to say?

Violent Orange -- You were my only hope.  And not much at that. -- What Water?
