                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in TALCAMA a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as STONE COLD is pushed out of top team by THE MENTORS, who came from 2nd 
with a 5-0-0 this turn.  The THE MENTORS guild has had a 5-0-0 turn and deserves to 
be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And 
let's see, TORCH fought ALBUQUERQUE BOONE and gained 21 points and contributed to THE 
MENTORS' 5-0-0.  CHICAGO DAWES has lost to ROWDY RODDY, falling 10 points, while 
helping make THE HIGH WAY a 1-4-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have 
failed, and LEGACY remains TALCAMA's top warrior for another turn.  Can someone 
confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at 
The Original Arthur's Last Stand until they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  STONE COLD has cause to stand 
tall, as they were TALCAMA's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team 
to beat.  And avoiding STONE COLD more than any other team we find SHEPHERDS.  
TALCAMA, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Building dreams on 
hope, ANDRE THE GIANT challenged up 26 points this turn to take on EDINBURG FINN from 
THE HIGH WAY stable.  And whaddya know, ANDRE THE GIANT beat EDINBURG FINN, and the 
fighters of STONE COLD were last seen lifting frothy pints of ale in honor of ANDRE 
THE GIANT's 19 point gain.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their 
enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in TALCAMA, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

                   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!
