                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome ARDIVENT.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with GRANDMA 
CLARA?  She actually beat WE GOT GAME's RUY LOPEZ, and walked away with 19 more 
points from the fight.  Laughs were big at FANDILS while they watched GRANDMA CLARA 
clobber RUY LOPEZ.  He lost 15 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  Har har har!  Did HEADSMAN wimp out, or just get lazy?  Anyway, he's not 
Duelmaster anymore.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for FANDILS' outstanding 
member, Duelmaster GRANDMA CLARA.  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty 
gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was WE 
GOT GAME.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at FANDILS ain't reelin'!  WE GOT 
GAME's mad!   
     Warriors of ARDIVENT unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Is it my 
imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
ARDIVENT is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for 
my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

What I was trying to say, pretty Prankster, was that
     1. That hurt! and
     2. You beat a pretty lousy and ugly warrior in me.
              -- Maxwell Charles

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

Back from the FTF, finally. Mechanical plane issues both directions. I knew I should 
have teleported! Hope all Ardiventians did well. -- Fandil The Wise

A salute to Headsman of Dungeon Cell as Duelmaster. Kudos! -- WOF

Ruy Lopez sends Inquisitor to The Red Sands early? We don't condone killing but 
congrats to Ruy and our sad and heartfelt wishes to the Dungeon Cell crew. -- Fandil
