                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  We now have a 
new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  THE 27 CLUB now holds the crown and 
they are betting they can keep it.  THE 27 CLUB is no joke as it posted a 3-1-0 week 
advancing from 2nd place to 1st place.  Hey everybody, watch out for JIMI HENDRIX, 
who flew up 11 points in the rankings after mashing BLOOD ORANGE like a melon.  Keep 
your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was LOWER STRATUS, 
who dropped 8 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with PIGPEN.  What 
does the Duelmaster and Piltdown Man have in common?  They are both the most 
challenged apes in human history!  Heyheyhey!  LEROY got through to the Duelmaster 
this turn.  No doubt he was more than anxious to kick ARLENE ROSS' tail out of the 
throne!  In front of all the crowds, LEROY took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  
I give the bum two weeks.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this 
stuff?   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the ARDIVENT arena.  Did you 
hear that THE 27 CLUB was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal 
hygiene of THE 27 CLUB's warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo me?  
Well, unsling your rasberries, cause FANDILS beats feet every time THE 27 CLUB smiles 
at them.  Try farming, eh?   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Here's some advice:  warriors with little 
wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Okay, so I may not be the world's best comedian, 
but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  See ya next time I'm on this 
circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Arlene Ross -- You whooped my hiney fair and square and are a great champion
Duelmistress. -- Clara Rose

We Fandils salute a fine Duelmaster: Arlene Ross. -- Fandil The Wise

I am glad you BluValley guys enjoy my stories; I hope you like this last one.  Good
bye all. -- Lord Protector Clara Rose

Clara Rose was a 9(+1)-12(+2)-16-15(+2)-21(+1)-5(+1)-13 +4 attack lunger.  She
learned skills, when she finally started to train them, at an amazing 3.50 skill
learn rate. -- Fandil The Wise

Corbin Ross -- You got me on a good day (I have had a lot of those.) and next I want
that Ross family DM Title. -- Leroy

M. Chardinee -- Hah!  I beat you because I learned some tricks at that Orlando Face.
-- Irvin (Uh, who went 0-3 in Challengers and learned NO skills)

Azure Clouds -- GREAT point gain!  You guys are fearsome! -- WOF

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

Tria Skathach -- Lucky, lucky me. -- Blood Orange

Fingers Brooke -- You keep reaching into the cookie jar your one of us is going to
end up with brooke fingers.  Hope it isn't me. -- Nimble Nimbus

Nothing trustworthy about a scribe who is a TP and gets the jump on people.  Shame on
you. -- Lower Stratus

Congrats, Clara Rose. -- Slugbait

Fandil -- Wise granddaughter you have there.  It takes most of us too long to figure
out that we should have gotten to known our grandparents sooner. -- Slugbait

Irvin -- You can swirv like a corkscrew, and I will cheer you on. -- Corbin Ross
P.S.  Joubert Klee would want me to.

Our congratulations to Clara Rose. -- Jorja and the Bluvalley Warriors

Leroy -- A tv challenge?  I'm more of a radio man. -- Corbin Ross

Clara Rose -- Since I can tell that I'm not going to get the hands to come up with a
column today, I will take this personal to congratulate you, ah, personally.  Good
try, and good graduation. -- Arlene Ross

And two losses to Azure Clouds, too much rain coming, by the looks of it, plus a loss
to Pigpen.  Euwh.  But... does that mean I don't have to sweep the floor? -- Jorja
