                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in ARDIVENT!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for DEATHSCAR?  BLACK 
COLOSSUS' proud of him after beating HEREFORD JONES and getting 11 points.  Talk 
about yer major upsets!  TRIA SKATHACH's match with VIRGINAL CONCUBINE cost her a 
loss of 7 points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  ROBERT JOHNSON stopped 
SADIE dead in hers tracks!  Who was the wiseguy that said ARDIVENT's Duelmaster was 
paying for drinks at The Victory Tavern?  Don't look at me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  BLUVALLEY WARRIORS was ARDIVENT's most avoided team.  
Is there some award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are FANDILS?  BLUVALLEY 
WARRIORS, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an 
invitation!  Like, is HEREFORD JONES popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in 
all of ARDIVENT!  He's got a 3-10-0, is that good?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed 
up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Its been 
really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

A salute to Robert Johnson, Duelmaster and Lord Protector.  Well done. -- Fandil The
Wise

Hereford Jones -- I am glad I didn't butcher you, but I did have you cowled! -- Earl

Pigpen -- It was my pleasure to wrestle with you, now I have to go clean up for my
victory celebration. -- Casper John

Tria, Tria, Tria, you are simply too much woman and warrior for me.  I have met my
match. -- Fleetwood

Rocksock Jones -- I am not sure where I pulled that win out of, but I will darn well
take it.  Whew! -- Jerome

I would like to take this time to wish Sadie well in The Mailer.  After early death
and a subsequent Dead Adept TV, she is giving live Champions a whirl.  You go, gal!
-- WOF and all The Fandils

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

Our congratulations to Robert Johnson. -- Jorja and the Bluvalley Warriors

One-four.  That's depressing.  Okay, not depressing, but it makes me feel badly about

the team.  I'd teach them to pull up their socks if I could, or even fit 'em out with
sock-garters, but they just don't LISTEN.  They seem to ENJOY going around with their
socks bagging down around their ankles!  Disgusting. -- Tria Skathach
