                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  TOBIR needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for DIAZ?  
MENTOR BLISS' proud of her after beating OLD HOWEL and getting 19 points.  Talk about 
yer major upsets!  BULLHEAD's match with CIVILIZED CRIMINAL cost it a loss of 7 
points!  What a putz!  JEX fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting and 
loses the title.  No one said he was a genius...  And I was just getting used to the 
ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome DAISY.  Aren't MENTOR BLISS proud.  
(Oh, my.) Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me! 
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  The warriors of ORDER must be getting lonely.  They were the most 
avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  Hhmph!  What kind of 
warriors are MENTOR BLISS?  ORDER, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get 
them to accept an invitation!  Can THE DEATH SQUAD's FONZANOON be more popular than 
me?  It was challenged the most, but is that really the same?  See if I ever talk to 
DAISY again!  FONZANOON was so low when She challenged she.  Hhmph!  I was sorry to 
see such an unfair "fight" in TOBIR.  DAISY got 10 points after beating FONZANOON, 24 
points below her.   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Hey you guys, don't you think your 
families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

                   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!
