                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail ARDIVENT!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as THE 27 CLUB is pushed out 
of top team by FANDILS, who came from 3rd with a 2-2-0 this turn.  And let's see, 
CORBIN ROSS fought SNUFFY and gained 17 points and contributed to BLUVALLEY WARRIORS' 
3-2-0.  SNUFFY has lost to CORBIN ROSS, falling 12 points, while helping make FANDILS 
a 2-2-0 turn.  Defending his title for another turn, ANTI-LEAP YEAR kept AZURE 
CLOUDS' warrior, BLACK BILE, from claiming the throne.  Can someone confirm a rumor 
for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Seaside 
Manor until they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  AZURE CLOUDS has cause to stand 
tall, as they were ARDIVENT's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a 
team to beat.  And avoiding AZURE CLOUDS more than any other team we find FANDILS.  
ARDIVENT, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged 
warrior this turn was BLUVALLEY WARRIORS' warrior JOUBERT KLEE.  More fighters 
challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!  I don't know about you, but VIOLENT 
ORANGE challenging down 27 points to BASH BROS. WAITRESS' WHAT WATER?, is not really 
worthy of AZURE CLOUDS.  Well, will you look at this, VIOLENT ORANGE was beat by WHAT 
WATER?, and AZURE CLOUDS will have to explain why they made such a challenge in the 
first place.  BLUE NOTE of AZURE CLOUDS had better have a good reason for challenging 
down 12 points in a challenge which she won.  I thought BLUE NOTE showed great skill 
and promise when she won victory over TRIA SKATHACH.  All right, so I slept through 
it!  Big deal!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that ARDIVENT has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in ARDIVENT, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in ARDIVENT again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

All, the dead list!  Look at the dead list.  A salute to Ardiventians, one and all!
Once again we have collectively defeated Te Red Sands!  Health.  Humility.  Honor. --
Fandil The Wise

Lord Protector Violent Orange -- We salute you! -- The Fandils

Anti-Leap Year -- Kudos to the Duelmaster.  Well done. -- WOF

What Water? -- I'll take two eggs over easy, sausage, grits, and rye toast, hold the
butter, plus black coffee--and, by te way, thanks for the win. -- Snuffy

Jimi Hendrix -- You performed better than I did, and you hit all the high notes.
Well done, you meanie. -- Irvin

Arlene Ross -- Just say "uncle." -- Uncle Junior

Good luck to all in The Mailer. -- Fandil The Wise

Sorry for the lack of DM column.  I though I sent one in but it most have gotten
eaten up in the mail. -- violent orange.

     That happened a lot this weekend.

Fandil the Wise -- You think you are wise.  Well guess who didn't fight you last
turn?  That's right... me. -- slugbait the crafty

All -- A basher and a piker should face each other more often.  Plus, I enjoyed that
matchup much more then the piker vs. the slasher. -- Orange

What Water? -- I'm trying to avoid the beat down I got this turn.  Rematch? -- Orange

Tria Skathach -- With my style and ability to attack I doubt you would have been red.
-- blue note

Fingers Brooke -- Ran out of gas because your fingers were broken? -- Blue Note

Kurt Cobain -- If you didn't smell so much like teen spirit I would have let you win.
-- Bile

Swirvin' Irvin -- Just watch out you don't skid!  Our cat tried to swirv today, but
there was ICE on the porch, and she ended up sliding all over the place.  Very
annoyed, she was. -- Arlene Ross
P.S.  She'd probably FORGOTTEN about winter.  I wish *I* could.

Our congratulations to Violent Orange.  That's a great color, really.  You never have
to worry about getting hit by carriages, because they can all SEE you.  Well, the
horses can see you, I don't suppose the carriages themselves can. -- Jorja and the
Bluvalley Warriors

Uncle Junior -- See if I offer YOU any turkey! -- Arlene Ross

Jim -- That's probably for you being so "mean" to Fingers last turn.  Don't know why
else I'd be devastating. -- Joubert Klee

I think the Happy Pheasant might make a pleasant change for the Big Meal later this
month. -- Corbin Ross

Blue Note -- Can I claim--and be believed--that you defeated me because you had a
style advantage?  No, I didn't think so, either.  Damn. -- Fingers Brooke

Well... the Beggar did Politely lose.  I guess that counts. -- Tria Skathach

Snuffy - I know you've got congestion problems, but I have other tables to wait on!
I must have filled your water glass 10 times, and still you claim I forgot to serve
you. -- What Water?

Violent Orange -- Congrats! -- Assur

Howlin' Wolf -- Young upstart, don't you know it is rude to cut in line.  There are
many veteran warriors waiting for those PPs your anti-warrior so rudely claimed.
Luckily we know his time is coming, for in 5 turns, he won't be so contrary, it being
a no <cut off by hal, for no apparent reason>
