                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in ARDIVENT since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with CANTEX?  It 
actually beat ARDIVENT's TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE, and walked away with 15 more points from 
the fight.  Laughs were big at WRATHMEN while they watched BAERUS clobber INQUISITOR. 
He lost 3 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Try as he 
might, HEADSMAN wasn't good enough at persuading SOLAARRIN to step down from the 
Duelmaster's throne...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about 
your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  
ARDIVENT thinks WE GOT GAME and their 99-66-7 is too much!  If at first you don't 
succeed, give up...  The bums at FANDILS couldn't face the challenges from WE GOT 
GAME!  No excuse for that!  What do people see in THE MAIDEN?  Hers 3-1-0?  DUNGEON 
CELL ain't talkin', but she's got 38 points.   
     Warriors of ARDIVENT unite.  You have only your games to lose!  How long have I 
been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Congrats to Solaarrin, a fine Duelmaster. Good luck in The Big Time. -- Fandil The 
Wise

Great team, there, Kharadmon. And very well managed. Salute. -- WOF

Dungeon Cell, I think we can deduce something here. For the last three turns,
     Headsman defeats Mildred Leona in 1 round.

     Headsman defeats Mildred Leona in 1 round.
I am pretty sure I am onto a pattern here. Headsman seems to like Mildred Leona eh? -- 
Fandil The Wise

The Maiden, pshaw! That hurt! Lincoln Hills is a nursing home; what are you doing 
here? -- Lincoln Hills

Not a good turn for The Fandils at 0-2. Then, not a very good Fandil team either. 
Where ARE those Red Sands when one really needs them?-- WOF

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

Inquisitor -- Stand STILL!  All that moving around -- being dodgy and all -- makes it 
hard to hit you, dammit. -- Ruy Lopez

Baerus -- It's like I'm looking in a mirror ... at a smaller, better version of me.  
Still beat you anyway! -- Alekhine

Chynarae -- I double checked.  I was supposed to win that matchup.  Didn't you read 
"The Book"? -- Petrosian

Catching up ...
