                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to ARDIVENT once again!  Biff!  Pow!  ARDIVENT watched with glee as 
FANDILS got knocked off top spot by BLUVALLEY WARRIORS!  What's with CORBIN ROSS?  He 
actually beat BASH BROS. WAITRESS' WHAT WATER?, and walked away with 22 more points 
from the fight.  Laughs were big at BLUVALLEY WARRIORS while they watched CORBIN ROSS 
clobber WHAT WATER?.  She lost 19 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  Apparently ARDIVENT isn't filled with as many gutless wonders as I thought.  
The Dreaded Duelmaster got 4 challenges this turn!  Another fighter (SHELLEY ANN 
14-13-1) challenged another Duelmaster (ANTI-LEAP YEAR 13-4-0).  Life goes on.  I can 
barely restrain my enthusiam for FANDILS' outstanding member, Duelmaster SHELLEY ANN. 
I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  
Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was AZURE CLOUDS.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at BASH 
BROS. WAITRESS ain't reelin'!  AZURE CLOUDS' mad!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover 
stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  Are you 
as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Arlene Ross -- Thanks for the advice.  I like to Swirv, ya know?  Even on ice,
whatever that is.  But my swirvin days may be over.  As a 16 pound 6 ounce grey
tabby, if I swirv, there is a lot of mass out of control, and, well, you get the
idea.  Besides, my live-in torty, Beatrice, frowns quite disdainfully at my swirvin.
-- Swirvin Irvin

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

A salute to The Duelmaster, Anti-Leap Year.  Hip, hip, hurrah! -- Fandil The Wise

Joubert Klee -- You say "uncle" quite nicely.  And quickly, too! -- Uncle Junior

Jimi Henrrix -- Today was MY day--long, slow and swirvin. -- Irvin

Kurt Cobain -- Gee!  All that just because I asked for an autograph?  You may play
well, but you ain't nice! -- Clara Rose

Corbin Ross -- I shore do wish yer hadnta done that.  Yup. -- Snuffy

Happy Thanksgiving to all and to all a good fight! -- The Fandils

Blue Note -- I am ALWAYS read!  It's in my contract. -- Tria Skathach

Blue Note -- Yeah, they've been broken so many times, they're half glue. -- Fingers
Brooke

Uncle Junior -- A black-sheep uncle, just what I did NOT need. -- Joubert Klee

Blue Note -- At least I made you work for it. -- Tria Skathach

Snuffy -- Let that be a lesson to you, snuffling is disgusting and it annoys people.
So does snuff, if that's your referent. -- Corbin Ross

Jim -- Not today, dear, I have a headache. -- Arlene Ross

HA!  A Fratsfan Noble EATS SAND! -- Fingers Brooke

Orange -- I have to agree.  I only wish last turn had been for the title. -- What
Water?

Shelley Ann -- You remind me of Wayne Gretzky's famous quote: "100% of the shots you
don't take won't go in."  You have to fight to get that last win. -- Assur

Anti-Leap Year -- I suspect it is futile, but you have what I want. -- What Water?
