                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  The boys at THE ELITE left the arena dejected, 
after being kicked out of the top spot by UNNAMEABLES.  Good show!  UNNAMEABLES had 
cause to celebrate, after SAEWAA got 12 points by beating YOUR BETRAYAL.  A certain 
someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 1 points to 
CATABOK.  (Discrete enough, ZOLO?) You could cut the tension with a scimitar as SIR 
FINBAR GALEDEEP of THE ELITE met the Duelmaster.  SIR FINBAR GALEDEEP found out that 
ARADI isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  Word has 
it one team in ARADI is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death. 
I'll bet it works.   
     And how sociable are ARADI's warriors?  Come, let us see.  To quell some nasty 
rumors, the guys in RED DOG GANG are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to 
avoid 'em.  The warriors of RED DOG GANG found their efforts at combat frustrated as 
THE ELITE apparently had more important things to do than fight.  If challenges were 
horses, CATABOK could open up a fast food joint!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not a spymaster 
for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious 
stupor.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant prattling 
may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Do not despair!  I shall 
return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Write more?  WRITE more?  I'm a Dog, I don't write.  I bark and a clerk decides what
I said and writes it.  I don't mind if he can write and I can't.  After all, I can
chase Cats and rabbits and HE can't.  As a hunter, he's pathetic.  Oh, well.  Two-
three for us, and I don't know how greyhounds can stand it, always racing around an
arena.  Arenas are boring.  They won't even let us mark it properly. -- Spot
P.S.  And no, I'm not going out tonight to find another Dog for our pack.  It's
raining, and any Dog with sense will be inside.

                   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!

      a tournament prize shall be sent to the Dark Arena until they are dead.
