                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
ARDIVENT.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for EARL, who flew up 13 points in the rankings after mashing 
SHIFTYEYED VOLUNTEER like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a 
basher in the top ten was LUIZA KLU, who dropped 4 points after a disappointing (to 
say the least) bout with JANIS JOBLIN.  Our battling duelmaster ROBERT JOHNSON has 
managed to hold the title, fending off FINGERS BROOKE's none too subtle advances.  
Better luck next time, BLUVALLEY WARRIORS.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 
gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad BLUVALLEY WARRIORS?  Big bad BLUVALLEY WARRIORS.  Big bad BLUVALLEY 
WARRIORS.  ARDIVENT's afraid of the big bad BLUVALLEY WARRIORS.  Tra la la la la!  
Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch FANDILS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats 
seem to be fairly deft at running from BLUVALLEY WARRIORS.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they 
will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the ARDIVENT giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Robert Johnson, Duelmaster.  It has a ring to it!  Kudos, and we Fandils salute you.
-- Fandil The Wise

What has Ardivent come to?  Too many Joneses and not enough Smiths! -- WOF

     Ah, you can't keep up with the Jones?

Brian Jones -- I guess I showed you, eh? -- Casper John (Neither a Jones nor a Smith,
but a Hagedorn)

Visiting Orc -- They don't call me Fleetwood for nothing. -- Fleetwood (Neither a
Jones nor a Smith, but a Miller.)

Fratsfan Noble -- I am sorry about that.  I did want to win, but to kill--no way!
Welcome to The Red Sands. -- Jerome (Neither a Jones nor a Smith, but a Hagedorn)

All, FYI, Sadie is a Miller too.  My new recruit, Earl, is a Smith, as was the just
graduated Snuffy. -- Fandil The Wise

A brief family tree summary...
Smith and Miller to a Smith
Genglebach and Hagedorn to a Hagedorn, then a Smith
Offspring Smith to a Hodes and Smith to a Spencer
Grandoffspring(2) to Hodes
-- The Fandil Publicist

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  Ardivent, The Arena Of The Red Sands awaits. -- Fandil
The Wise

Good luck in the tournament, Sadie. -- Jorja and the Bluvalley Warriors

Fleetwood -- I was trying to find my other sock, of course.  I'm SUPPOSED to have
TWO.  I think the dryer ate it. -- Rocksock Jones

One-four, this is better than last time.  And the current snow is a SPRING snow,
nothing to get stirred up about.  Winter's last hurrah, you know?  High time. -- Tria
Skathach and teammates
