                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ARDIVENT!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Woof!  THE 27 CLUB were a bunch of 
dogs after FANDILS got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 1st!  What's with 
CASPER JOHN?  He actually beat THE 27 CLUB's BLIND OWL, and walked away with 15 more 
points from the fight.  Laughs were big at FANDILS while they watched CASPER JOHN 
clobber BLIND OWL.  He lost 10 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  FINGERS BROOKE was reminded on the sands why JANIS JOBLIN is Duelmaster.  
Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is 
looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  ARDIVENT thinks THE 27 
CLUB and their 125-96-2 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at FANDILS ain't reelin'!  THE 27 CLUB's mad! 
What do people see in BLIND OWL?  His 16-11-1?  THE 27 CLUB ain't talkin', but he's 
got 76 points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You 
young rapscallions, take note!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  All 
work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Dungeon Cell types -- You squeaked me out for top team--29-28.  I give you great
credit amongst my jealousy. -- Fandil The Wise

Janis Joblin -- Duelmistress once again! Kudos!  Get that lazy manager of yours to
write you a DM Column, you hear? -- WOF

     In plain text (.txt), please!

Black Colossus -- Not to wish bad luck on anyone, but I hope your prepping aimer,
Deathscar, dies in The Red Sands.  Your manager already has enough godlings and TCs!
-- Fandil The Wise

Rocksock Jones -- It was my time to rock and sock! -- Jerome

Hereford Jones -- What Jerome said. -- Casper John

Deathscar -- Hmmm.  Congrats on barely beating me.  Why, you have talent.  You are
good enough to barely sqeak by a warrior with a third or a quarter of your FE.  Well
done.  Sorta. -- Uncle Leroy

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

Billy Joe -- I wouldn't have thought it was possible, but that was a very enjoyable
loss. -- Inquisitor

Pigpen --  I've executed people for lesser offenses than that stink cloud of yours.
-- Headsman

Mildred Leona -- I did warn you about having all of those drinks "on the rocks" at
Bearfield's.  When HE says it's "on the rocks," he doesn't mean ice, you know.  Agate
pebbles.  No dilution.  If you just come away woozy, you're lucky! -- Rocksock Jones

One-four, and only the new guy won?  This is bad. -- Fingers Brooke

Janis Joblin -- I'd be embarrassed, but it would take too much energy. -- Fingers
Brooke, tired out

Casper John -- Experience tells, and I had a lot more experience at losing than you
did, so... here I am.  Damn. -- Hereford Jones

Jerome -- If you're still around come Yule, guess what you'll find in YOUR socks, you
upstart! -- Rocksock Jones

Winehoushe -- Tha' wash goo'.  Very goo'.  Gotta do i' again.  Yeah. -- Lorens Klu

Inquisitor -- Listen, you!  I don't know a thing!  It's my specialty, not knowing
stuff. -- Billy Joe
