                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in TRANSEL this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the difference, as 
BLACK AND BLUES is pushed out of top team by PSYCHO SQUAD, who came from 2nd with a 
4-1-0 this turn.  The PSYCHO SQUAD guild has had a 4-1-0 turn and deserves to be 
watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's 
see, BLACK WIDOW fought WILLIE BROWN and gained 21 points and contributed to PSYCHO 
SQUAD's 4-1-0.  Due to his absence and inability to defend the throne, TORPEDO has 
lost the title of Duelmaster.  We should ask KNEES MCGEE about the thrill of victory, 
and what being the new Duelmaster does for a warrior, she's now the one to ask.  By 
the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at 
The Victory Tavern?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  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, TRANSEL, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in TRANSEL and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper--

Three-two, that'll do.  Ha!  I'm a poet and I know it.  But it's too much work to
keep up.  Not my thing, you know?  Two wins over standbys, which is what they're FOR,
right?  And Willie Brown really should have done better.  Oh, well, not MY problem.

                   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.
