                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  ARDIVENT needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for EARL?  
FANDILS' proud of him after beating HEREFORD JONES and getting 23 points.  Talk about 
yer major upsets!  CAPABLANCA's match with TYNARAE cost him a loss of 18 points!  
What a putz!  DEATHSCAR fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting and 
loses the title.  No one said he was a genius...  And I was just getting used to the 
ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome TYNARAE.  Aren't WRATHMEN proud.  
(Oh, my.) I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They 
want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  FANDILS was ARDIVENT's most avoided team.  Is there 
some award for that?  Is there some deep dark secret why WRATHMEN's been avoiding 
FANDILS so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Like, is UNCLE LEROY 
popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of ARDIVENT!  He's got a 7-1-0, 
is that good?  See if I ever talk to KASPAROV again!  UNCLE LEROY was so low when He 
challenged he.  Hhmph!  A lotta people lost a lotta money in a lotta bets, when 
KASPAROV challenged UNCLE LEROY, 28 points below and lost!  Send 'im to the Dark 
Arena!   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  UNCLE LEROY bloodfeuded (is that a word?) KASPAROV for revenge over some 
guy's bad fortune.  Was it really worth it?  What if they had a fight and nobody 
showed up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  ARDIVENT is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Aw shucks!  An 0-2.  Must be getting old. -- Fandil The Wise

     Will it help if we start calling you Wise Young Fandil?

A salute to Duelmaster and Lord Protector Deathscar. -- All us Fandils

Feheadrae -- I challenged, I tried, I couldn't do it.  Kudos. -- Earl (being mended
in the infirmary)

Dew -- I fought like I was all wet. -- Mildred Leone.

Lorens Klu -- Got it, Sir. -- WOF
P.S.  Whether or not I will remember it....

Health.  Humility.  Honor. -- Fandil The Wise

What fine young fellow was killed in the arena by mean and ornery Kasparov?  What
loved-by-many Fandil, Jerome, was casketed by a man above the bishops and queens?
What beautiful godling 11-13-15-17-9-12-7 basher was checkmated and subsequently
overturned?  All by a gamemaster from a far continent.  Ouch! -- Fandil The Wise

Our congratulations to Deathscar. -- Jorja and the Bluvalley Warriors

One-four?  That's... well, we don't like it.  Our only win comes from Brooke getting,
ah, impatient with the Friendly Constable.  Brooke does "impatient" really well. --
Rocksock Jones
P.S.  And, as you see, no personal personals.  You all fought very well, but we're
tired and embarrassed.
