                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome MALCORN.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Biff!  Pow!  MALCORN 
watched with glee as GONE OFF THAT got knocked off top spot by GREENWARDENS!  Up 'n 
down.  Up 'n down.  Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  
Well, WRATHMEN 5's 6th moved them up to 1-0-0 place.  What's with RIPPLE?  He 
actually beat GREENWARDENS' SNOWFOOT, and walked away with 26 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at GONE OFF THAT.  SYRUP lost 18 points to KHELOLIR.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe SYRUP will provide more easy wins...  MOUSE was reminded 
on the sands why THIRD COURSE is Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live 
subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted 
prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     Warriors of MALCORN unite.  You have only your games to lose!  BLUE RAM larned 
his lesson (COURVOISIER taught it well), and we right likely won't be seein' 'im 
fight any GONE OFF THAT members with the same gusto.  How long have I been here?  I 
got people to see, places to go...   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  Are you 
as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Six dead.  This is it, the city will perish.  Everyone move out to the countryside!

Three-two-one.  Nothing good comes of progressions like that.  Is Blue Ram remorseful
for the killing of Yac?  He *says* so, but is he really?  The gods only know, and
they never tell us useful things. -- Snowfoot

                   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.
