                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ARDIVENT brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 3-1-0 is 
nice, but don't get cocky, THE 27 CLUB, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are 
proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see SADIE win a fight and gain 18 
points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, SADIE beat TRIA SKATHACH and TRIA SKATHACH lost 15 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Going for broke or broken, our Duelmaster ROBERT 
JOHNSON challenged this turn.  And if variety is the spice of life, ARDIVENT may be 
getting bland, as SNUFFY stays top dog in the city.  I'm not in a very good mood 
today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, 
ARDIVENT?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  BLUVALLEY WARRIORS was the most 
avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led 
the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was 
FANDILS.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, ROBERT JOHNSON was this 
turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the ARDIVENT arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste 
this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide

Snuffy!  You did it again!  And now you are a Lord Protector!  I am so proud of you!
The Snuffy I know is an 18(+2)-18(+3)-12-7(+2)-21(+1)-9(+1)-9(+1) mode TP, with a
1.23 skill learn rate and 11 swings in 40(26-14) arena fights with 8 DM Titles.
Enjoy your retirement, Bozo! -- The Fandil Publicist (So pleased that she can finally
stop interpreting and writing Columns for the dunce.)

Robert Johnson -- I found out I was not the better warrior.  Despite my surprise and
disappointment, I salute you and your talent. -- Sadie

Blind Owl -- I flew higher and faster and saw that I was the better warrior.  I am
dad gum hootin' happy! -- Fleetwood

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  The Red Sands of Ardivent await us all. -- Fandil The
Wise

We congratulate Snuffy. -- Jorja and the Bluvalley Warriors

Snuffy -- Deca what?  Decadent treat?  That would be dark chocolate.... -- Tria
Skathach, willing

Fleetwood -- Why would I want to? -- Hereford Jones

Oh, gods, our ONLY win was Rocksock killing a Visiting Orc.  Not impressive. -- Tria
Skathach

Tria -- He took me by surprise, just WALKED IN without KNOCKING when I was taking a
shower.  Well, I thought he was up to no good, of course.  What else COULD I think?
Probably a serial killer.  So I beat him to the punch. -- Rocksock Jones
