                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon ARDIVENT, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Practice pays for LINCOLN HILLS, who pummelled M. 
CHARDINEE, to pocket 16 points.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, HEADSMAN 
was winsome, after beating GRANDMA CLARA and seeing her lose 1 points.  A certain 
someone saw FREAKY TAH at The Seaside Manor with the shakes, and now he fails to show 
up to defend his throne.  What a pathetic slob!  In ARDIVENT, nothing is permanent 
(except Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, HEADSMAN.  So who's the team 
that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt 
to me.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in WE GOT 
GAME are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  The warriors of 
WE GOT GAME found their efforts at combat frustrated as FANDILS apparently had more 
important things to do than fight.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Admittedly Death 
waits for no one, but me thinks MAXWELL CHARLES of FANDILS (4-1-0) is being sent off 
a little prematurely.  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in ARDIVENT is the highlight of my life.  As the 
seasons change, and the creatures of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to 
leave this place.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for 
ARDIVENT?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Congrats to Freaky Tah, Duelmaster of The Red Sands. -- Fandil The Wise

Freaky, you will probably make a better DM than I did. I bow to your superiority. (But 
I hate you for it!) -- Grandma Clara

Ruy, not fair; not fair. You have all the opening moves memorized. I cannot tell the 
difference between a bishop and a pawn. Do they both preach? -- Earl

Deep Blue, I beat you! -- Lincoln Hills

Happy Peasant and Visiting Orc, thanks for being there. We needed you badly. -- 
Maxwell Charles and Cantex (feeling good about the wins)

Health. Humility. Honor. The Red Sands await us all. -- WOF
