                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
JHELUM brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, PEARL JAM, since DOGS OF 
WAR took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  ROCK VIKINGS turned 
their 2-2-0 turn into a 4th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than 
this, and you get put on hit lists.  Now let's all watch DOGS OF WAR's heads swell 
from their 4-1-1 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big deal.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see CUSSTER win a fight and gain 27 points, 
terribly.  Going for broke or broken, our Duelmaster WURM KIN Dark Arena Challenged 
this turn.  And if variety is the spice of life, JHELUM may be getting bland, as 
GARDEN stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how 
else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  DOGS OF WAR was the most avoided 
team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in 
this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was ANGELS OF GLORY.  
Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, ROSIE RIVETTER was this turn's most 
challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  PEARL JAM has cause to pause today, as 
GARDEN was sent to the Dark Arena, and came back--though not in the best of moods, 
I'll wager.  Let's see, 7-4-1.  Pretty good record for a living warrior.  A sad one 
though, for a dead one.  Such is the case for BLACK of PEARL JAM.  Tsk.  We're all 
going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that 
later?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste 
this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide

GARDEN (4-6844) PEARL JAM (629)

                   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!

    * 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 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.
