                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Coming up with a solid 2-2-1 outing, CON + INSULT has advanced 4 
places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for BE TRANSPARENT, who flew up 21 
points in the rankings after mashing VIOLENT J like a melon.  Keep your eye on this 
gal.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  EXTERMINATION was 
bested by PUFF CABBAGE and drops 14 points.  It's a proud day for the ERRATA stable, 
as their warrior, VENEER, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  Advice to bashers--never 
force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that SECRET SQUIRRELS was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of SECRET SQUIRRELS' 
warriors, I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch DEVIL ADVOCATES' 
act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from SECRET 
SQUIRRELS.  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, BE TRANSPARENT would be 
president.  Although it may be a contest she doesn't want to win.  Getting lots of 
flowers from sympathetic fans was BLOATED BARBARA, who was successfully challenged by 
TENACIOUS D who had a mere 16 points more than BLOATED BARBARA.  Definition of petty: 
TENACIOUS D defeated BLOATED BARBARA, a mismatch of 16 points.  In a touching display 
by a 'touched' warrior, THE RED VIPER went after 160 SWIFTLY, who was higher by 23 
points.  Well, when the dust settled, THE RED VIPER beat 160 SWIFTLY.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Carrion Bird Cinematic Humor:  
VIOLENT J II:  THE REMATCH.  THE CLASSICS has one more week to get their bloodfeud 
off.  I talked to the manager, but he could only grunt 'ZOMBIE who?'.  Ya gotta luv 
em!  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your ally in the arena with you 
and see what happens.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in ARVAT have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), 
oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

                   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!
