                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail OSKSI!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as AESIR is pushed out of top 
team by GAMES LIBRARY, who came from 2nd with a 4-1-0 this turn.  And let's see, HOP 
SCOTCH fought GYLFI and gained 23 points and contributed to GAMES LIBRARY's 4-1-0.  
GYLFI has lost to HOP SCOTCH, falling 22 points, while helping make AESIR a 1-3-0 
turn.  We should ask MANTRA about the thrill of victory, and what being the new 
Duelmaster does for a warrior, he's now the one to ask.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  
I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Elefont uses trolls in their stew.  
Talk about gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the I WANT YOU 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on OSKSI, what are you afraid of?  
And guess who avoided I WANT YOU stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was AESIR.  
Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was GAMES LIBRARY's warrior 
FAROLZEN VARU.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or 
hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, OSKSI, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in OSKSI and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Four-one, a mirror of last time.  We'll take it!  Only ONE of those wins was over a
standby, which seems worthy of note.  Well, passing mention, at least.  And, again,
no Chinese suits. -- Scramble, for the Games Librarians

                   SEAM (DM 20) REOPENS AS A NEW NO-TOURNEY ARENA!

Seam (DM 20) will be re-opening soon as a no-tourney DM arena!  If you enjoy arena 
play without tournament interference, this arena is for you!  Only rookie teams may 
enter this arena, and all managers must sign the "no-tourney" pledge.  Turn 0 is due 
on May 4 (overviews only) and Turn 1 is due on May 18.  

To avoid confusion, all old inactive teams which were in Seam have travelled to 
Mazgourrah (DM 77). 

Seam is the newest arena to join the no-tourney group of arenas and will process on 
opposite weeks with Shadowspire (DM 81), the original no-tourney arena.  Other no-
tourney arenas include Telorinthe (DM 83), a slow arena, and Storm Rock (DM 107), for 
ADM warriors.  

Join in the fun!  Send in your new rollup along with the pledge soon so you can get in 
on the ground floor of this new arena!

   ********************************************************************************

                               NO-TOURNEY ARENA PLEDGE

    * I pledge that I will not send warriors from this team to a tournament, nor 
      will I use a tournament prize on a warrior from this team.
    * I pledge to run a full team when I run turns in this arena.  If circumstances 
      preclude my running less than a full team, I will notify the Player Committee.
    * I agree to abide by the decisions of the Player Committee.
    * I understand that any warrior that participates in a tournament or receives 
      a tournament prize shall be sent to the Dark Arena until they are dead.
