     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out ARDIVENT to see 
what's new.  Uncool, THE 27 CLUB.  I mean 0-0-0 is bad.  Will they will be allowed to 
fight?  I say use 'em for training practice!  The guys at ABYSS' DARK FORCE like 
really pulled together to get a 2-1-0 this turn, moving up by 5.  What was the name 
of that team who got 4-1-0 this turn for a total 78-52-5 you ask?  (Sure)  WE GOT 
GAME's their name, and fighting's their game!  MVP award for LADY ANNABELLE?  THE 
SOVEREIGN's proud of her after beating POLITE BEGGAR and getting 15 points.  Talk 
about yer major upsets!  FEHEADRAE's match with ROCKSOCK JONES cost her a loss of 17 
points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  TYNARAE stopped NIMZOVICH dead in 
his tracks!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask 
me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  WRATHMEN was 
ARDIVENT's most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Is there some deep dark 
secret why WE GOT GAME's been avoiding WRATHMEN so much?  Or is it just that they're 
too scared?  Can BLUVALLEY WARRIORS' BILLY JOE be more popular than me?  He was 
challenged the most, but is that really the same?  For sure, I was holding my breath 
when I found out CASPER JOHN challenged MATTHEAS.  After all, haven't FANDILS and 
WRATHMEN had a long standing duel in ARDIVENT?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, or 
anything, but MATTHEAS wants me to write about it since he bested CASPER JOHN.  
Satisfied?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ARDIVENT ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to 
hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Tynarae!  Duelmaster and top-dog again!  No box for you, just a big win.  Kudos to
the champ. -- Fandil The Wise

Welcome, welcome to Abyss' Dark Force.  Glad to have you in Ardivent, The Red Sands.

write this, and besides, the ground is frozen.  But we're going to sit in the back of
the closet amongst the boots and sulk. -- Rocksock Jones
