                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon ALJAFIR, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  FISH THANGS?  Who?  THE SHOWOFFS is the top team 
these days, buddies!  MISSION: EARTH! after a sorry 0-0-0 might want to consider 
abandoning the sands and taking up singing the 'Can't fight no more' blues!  What's a 
move up by 5 you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, 
according to DE'JA KREW.  Good things come to those who fight well, as THE SHOWOFFS 
can attest, moving up by 1.  THE SHOWOFFS had cause to celebrate, after YOU CAN'T 
BEAT ME got 22 points by beating THIS IS A TEST.  A certain someone should cut down 
on the drinking and practice more, after losing 15 points to YOU CAN'T BEAT ME.  
(Discrete enough, THIS IS A TEST?) The arena was more crowded than usual this time, 
as PRINCE ALBERT faced ALJAFIR's Duelmaster.  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster 
were disappointed by PRINCE ALBERT, of ROYAL PAIN, who despite a 11-2-0 couldn't 
overcome ALJAFIR's Number 1.  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable 
walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in 
QUEENSRYCHE are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  The 
warriors of QUEENSRYCHE found their efforts at combat frustrated as THE SHOWOFFS 
apparently had more important things to do than fight.  If challenges were horses, 
ALWAYS could open up a fast food joint!  Them's the breaks, GIDJIT HAYES.  Expecting 
fair challenges from FISH THANGS is evidently too much to ask.  Warriors of ALJAFIR!  
Do you wish your reputations tainted by the base challenge of OFF THE HOOK?  
Mismatched by 9 points, ULTRO PINKY was subdued by ARSE OF SPADES.  Is this really 
worth noting?  I thought ARSE OF SPADES showed great skill and promise when she 
bested ULTRO PINKY.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have 
fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in ALJAFIR is the highlight of my life.  Keep those 
sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  Like a mixed metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I 
now bid ALJAFIR farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

alfredo -- This writing tool really wants to capitalize your name, but Jorja says to
fight it.  Tell her once--in a newsletter--and she remembers.  What was I going
to...?  Ah.  Off the Hook and skills.  Well, I guess I'm glad he was happy, but
you're correct, a kiss would not have been well received.  I note he learned less
this time, so maybe the well is dry for him.  Let him go beat up my teammates. --

                   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!
