Columns!  Can't he just graduate already?
     So, then, I will include birth information on the five Fandils, even though
Sadie-the-younger-and-not-risen-from-the-dead is no longer with us.  Only one Sadie,
now, but two Sadies in this info.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ARDIVENT!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  My praise to THE 27 CLUB for their 
3-1-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of 
notice!  SADIE caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as she 
skillfully bested FINGERS BROOKE and was awarded 21 points in recognition.  In one of 
the week's more notable duels, SADIE put down FINGERS BROOKE, causing him to lose 9 
points of recognition in the process.  Although TRIA SKATHACH made a valiant effort, 
it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious SNUFFY.  Would you believe that 
over half of the old women in ARDIVENT seem to feel that they could fight better than 
you gladiators?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city ARDIVENT.  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in ARDIVENT 
these days is THE 27 CLUB.  At least, most blades in town are looking to avoid them.  
Apparently the stalwarts of FANDILS are catching the bulk of jests down at the 
challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty fighters cannot but 
expect competition from those below.  LUIZA KLU take warning!  You have more than a 
few enemies in ARDIVENT.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the 
miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed a 
stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms 
no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Snuffy is Duelmaster!  5 time Duelmaster!  Snuffy, my boy, you have impressed me far
beyond expectations. -- Fandil The Wise

So much for the Sadie "controversy."  The Visiting Orc took care of that!  The
scoundrel!  Young Sadie, a 16(+1)-13-9-17-9-10-11 hosed damage, ambi and bonused Init
plus Parry basher is no longer with us.  I will miss her. -- Fandil The Wise

Fingers Brooke -- It was a great fight, but I was the most enduring. -- Snuffy
(Interpreted by the Fandil Publicist)

Blind Owl -- Thanks for hooting for my comback. -- Sadie (arisen from the dead)

Hereford Jones -- I raced like a horse; you plodded like a bovine.  I am a Smith; you
are a Jones. (Hah!) -- Fleetwood

     I thought the Joneses were hard to keep up with?

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  And Merry Christmas. -- Fandil The Wise and The Fandils

One-four, with the win being over a standby.  Not the solstice present I was hoping
for.  And, sorry, not personals I feel like writing today.  After all, it isn't like
anything amazing happened. -- Jorja, for the Bluvalley Warriors
P.S.  It's probably the cold weather.  Minus seven tomorrow night, with a windchill
