                                      SPY REPORT

Hello, my darling!  Great to see each of you again in and around Seam's arena.  I am 
sorry if I was a bit short with some of you today. I have rushed into the arena to 
file my report and then I will be rushing back out once again.  A village, one close 
to Seam, has had a plague break out and I have been working with the healers to help 
the people and possibly find the source.  So, without further adieu, let's take a look 
at this turn's action!

Rasterize is leaving us after the fights today or after the tavern tonight, I'm never 
sure!  Before leaving, he did have one more chance to defend the throne.  The fight is 
of importance because if our Duelmaster loses, we crown a new Champion.  Actually, if 
our Duelmaster wins, we still crown a new champion.  Rasterize was not idle in his 
final turn.  He challenged Pestilence and overcame him in a 1-minute duel.  So, now we 
move onto the next fight that will determine our newest Duelmaster.  Castor Lynxear 
matched up with Dearly Departed.  Dearly Departed slew Castor in a 1-minute fight and 
finished with the highest recognition points for the turn.  Dearly Departed is our new 
champion!  Congrats to DD, who is managed by Nomad.

The top 5 did not have a lot of movement with our top two teams staying in their 
respective spots -- Thirsty Thugs and 80s Fantasy. Oakleaf jumped from 6th place to 
3rd after a 4-1-0 turn.  Pixelbenders had a nice 4-1-0 effort that moved them into 4th 
place.  Huckle's Cats continues to top of the top 5.  I'm Not Eggbert's 4 rank jump is 
the biggest of the turn.  Despite taking the throne, Phantom Regiment slipped 6 spots 
from 3rd to 9th.  This was the turn's largest drop.

There were only 2 deaths this turn, but one was a biggie.  Tough Mama fell to the 
blade of Craggy Matterhorn.  I'm Not Eggbert's new warrior certainly made an 
impression with their debut fight in Seam.  The big death occurred when arena veteran, 
Castor Lynxear, died in a random match up with our new Duelmaster, Dearly Departed.  I 
tried to reach Pollux Lynxear, the deceased's brother, but he was unavailable for 
comment according to his teammates.  I will keep an eye on this story as it develops!

Time for me to go, my sweets!  I'm heading back to the outskirts of Seam.  We have 
gotten the ailment under control for now, but we cannot let our guard down just yet!  
Stay away from the village, and for gods' sakes, wash your hands!  I will see you next 
turn in Seam! Invite a friend to watch the fights, or better yet, recruit a manager or 
three to join us on the sands!
