                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail JURINE!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, GAMMA CEPHEI fought WOK THE DOG and gained 21 points and 
contributed to CEPHEUS' 1-0-0.  WOK THE DOG has lost to GAMMA CEPHEI, falling 10 
points, while helping make CANINE CUISINE a 3-2-0 turn.  Defending his title for 
another turn, ROVERWURST kept JURINE's warrior, VENOMOUS CONCUBINE, from claiming the 
throne.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing 
fighters do dishes at The Welcome Wench 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.  I also notice that the CEPHEUS 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on JURINE, what are you afraid of?  
And avoiding CEPHEUS more than any other team we find CANINE CUISINE.  JURINE, are we 
going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged warrior this 
turn was MIDDLE WAY 16's warrior HANDY ILSONDER.  More fighters challenged him than 
challenged the Duelmaster!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  A farewell moment, if you please, CLYDE CHOATE of MEDAL OF HONOR G10 
has been sent to the Dark Arena, and was carried out on his shield.  MEDAL OF HONOR 
G10 has some questions to answer.  Like 'why did you kill your fighter, CLYDE CHOATE, 
who had a record of 16-4-0?' 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.   
     I like this place, JURINE, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in JURINE, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in JURINE again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Ten fights, two in the Dark Arena and four with daylight standbys.  Bah.  Three-two
for us, and only one of the wins was over a standby.  This'll do. -- Handy Ilsonder

                   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!
