                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in ARDIVENT a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as FANDILS is pushed out of top team by THE 27 CLUB, who came from 2nd 
with a 2-1-0 this turn.  YOU DON'T SAY! stable has parlayed this turn's 2-0-0 into a 
3 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 2nd place.  Good work, guys!  
And let's see, OOO OOO OOO fought CORBIN ROSS and gained 18 points and contributed to 
YOU DON'T SAY!'s 2-0-0.  Defending his title for another turn, KURT COBAIN kept 
BLUVALLEY WARRIORS' warrior, ARLENE ROSS, from claiming the throne.  By the way, was 
that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Seaside 
Manor?   
     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 avoiding BLUVALLEY WARRIORS 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!  In a brave attempt, CLARA ROSE from 
FANDILS challenged up 19 points to fight JOUBERT KLEE from the BLUVALLEY WARRIORS 
stable.  CLARA ROSE perhaps got hers just desserts, seeing as she was overcame by 
JOUBERT KLEE and ended up with 85 recognition points.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  The grave that BASH BROS. WAITRESS had dug for WHAT WATER? may yet 
be filled with the body of BANDIT PRINCE.  Seldom are the likes of this to be seen.  
WHAT WATER? lives still!  BASH BROS. WAITRESS has some questions to answer.  Like 
'why did you kill your fighter, FLIRTING AT TABLE, who had a record of 2-0-0?' I'LL 
BE RIGHT BACK must have surprised BASH BROS. WAITRESS this turn, after they sent her 
to the Dark Arena, but the Dark Arena couldn't hold her!  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.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

A salute to Lord Protector Kurt Cobain, a great warrior and a fine Duelmaster. --
Fandil The Wise

What Water? -- Kudos.  You made it!  Despite the management. (wink) -- WOF

What Water? -- Leave me alone.  Get outta here.  You can't even keep my water dish
full.  Go keep Lady greywand's water glass empty.  Yeah! -- Irvin (obviously feeling
a little thirsty and a lot angry)

Joubert Klee -- You again.  (sigh)  Kudos.  You are obviously the better warrior. --
Snuffy (Interpreted by the Fandil Publicist; well, maybe interpreted, maybe made up)

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

Whoa!  Is there some problem with the dating on this newsletter, or have I gained two
weeks? -- Jorja

All -- We are, what a surprise, running really short of time today, so no individual
personals. -- Jorja
P.S.  Getting ready for all sorts of problems, er, make that... CHALLENGES this week.

Our congratulations to Kurt Cobain and What Water? -- Jorja and the Bluvalley
Warriors

And for the rest, two-three, with two of the losses being to standbys?  The less said
about THAT, the better. -- the Bluvalley Warriors
