                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ILLIS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, YOUNG GUNS, since SHEWISH 
MUNCHIES took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see BOA win a fight and gain 14 points, terribly.  Tsk, 
tsk, BOA beat HUMAN PRETZEL and HUMAN PRETZEL lost 11 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  Going for broke or broken, our Duelmaster STONE GOLEM Dark Arena Challenged 
this turn.  The crowds were amazed this turn, as STONE GOLEM killed the Duelmaster, 
HEATH BAR, leaving SHEWISH MUNCHIES in mourning.  This incredible death has allowed, 
I might add, BAST from ELDER GODS to ascend to the throne of Duelmaster, and I hear 
DARK ARENA is not happy.  The Warty Toad, humph!  I've tasted better ale at 
mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From ILLIS' trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  ILLIS, 
I am losing what little hope I had in you.  SHEWISH MUNCHIES the most avoided team?  
What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like ELDER GODS avoided them 
the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see 
the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Folks, I am leaving Duel II for personal reasons.  I have no idea whether I may 
return, but don't count on it.  I will remain active in Lapur (29) and Jade Mountain 
(75), and that's it.  I have enjoyed knowing you.  Fare you well. -- Jorja

                   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!

    * 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

    * 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.
