                                      SPY REPORT

Greetings, my sweet and dear managers!  It is so good to see you again on this most 
wonderful day.  It is a wonderful day because we have fights, fights, and more fights!  
Fights on the sands, fights in the stands, fights between managers and other managers!  
The list of fights is much like the conflicts themselves--ENDLESS!  Let us get to the 
action as quickly as possible for Seam's 15th turn.

The title match for this turn became a random match up.  Dirt Nap, the reigning 
Duelmaster, found himself matched up against Cluckeroo from I'm Not Eggbert.  
Cluckeroo has been rising in the ranks these last few cycles and all the hard work 
paid off as he becomes the new Duelmaster in Seam.  Congrats to Vlad for leading 
another warrior to the most prized seat in the arena.  Condolences to Floyd, who 
manages Dirt Nap.  At 10-3-0 and with a Duelmaster's title on the resume, Dirt Nap 
certainly has the potential to rise back to the top of the arena.

Phantom Regiment and Rainbow Brigade did not fight this turn.  So, it will be safe to 
assume they did not avoid Unlikely Heroes.  The same cannot be said for the rest of 
the arena.  Granted, the Unlikely Heroes guild is ranked 2nd in both the overall 
standings and the 3 turn standings, so maybe there is cause to avoid them.  
Pixelblenders gets called out in the report for avoiding Unlikely Heroes the most.  

There are no new teams to welcome this turn, but the arena remains strong with 20 
active teams and 49 fights for the cycle.

Den sends Devil Lennox to the Dark Arena after a disappointing 0-4 start.  Dameon 
Darkheart sends one out of the gate to fight at night as well.  Arenamaster Vyan 
decided to take matters into his own hands, making short work of both doomed warriors.  
The only non-Dark Arena death for turn 15 belongs to Aragorn.  Garenth Greyscribe, a 
6-7-0 warrior from the Philanthrolords stable randomly matched up with the 7-6-1 
warrior Anubis from Deities and Demigods.  It was one-sided and it was over quickly 
for Gareth.  Philanthrolords just finished a feud against Exemplar and the guild of 
Holy Ship!  Now it appears they must move forward against Deep Thought and his guild.

Villainy and boldness were in short supply this turn.  The villainy--we are an 
Andorian arena--came from a few down challenges, the most significant coming from 
Den's crew as Coover Bennett dipped down 26 points to fight Sir Osis of Liver.  No 
surprise outcome here: Coover Bennett won.  In a rare act of downward aggression, 
Mercyfletcher of Philanthrolords challenged down 5 points to fight Cpt. Buzzy.  
Unfortunately for Mercyfletcher, Cpt. Buzzy was ready for the challenge and emerged 
victorious.  The boldness belongs to Manosque Cyan of Wyld Masquerade, who challenged 
up 31 points to fight Elenoral of House of Pain.  Sadly, boldness does not always 
equate with ability and Manosque Cyan lost to Elenoral.  The other bold move comes 
from Wynn Duffy of Big Lake Outcasts, who looked high and challenged Able Baker 
Charlie of Huckle's Cats.  The outcome was the same as the previous battle and Wynn 
lost.

Unlikely Heroes fell out of the top spot to number 2 and Thirsty Thugs jumped into 1st 
place.  Twisted Asylum and Deities and Demigods made the biggest upward moves by 
climbing up 9 spots taking over 7th and 8th respectively.  The runner-up for biggest 
drop belongs to Huckle's Cats, who fell 9 places to 17th.  And the winner, of a 
category no one wants to win, is Floyd and The Killing Field.  The Killing Field 
toppled 11 spots to land at 15th.  Better luck next time, gents!

My darlings, it is time for me to take my leave.  The life of a socialite is never 
idle.  It can be boring at times, but it never pauses and admires the scenery.  I hope 
to see your smiling faces back next turn.  We are coming into the home stretch of 
Seam's first 20 turns.  Will we have graduates soon?  I can't wait to see how it all 
plays out over the next couple of turns.  Luck to you all, my pretties!

Mr. Hobbit -- If an oak plank to the face left no impression, if contusion and 
concussion failed to teach you, and, as it seems, an immense ball of fire did not sear 
some sense into you, let me reveal the lesson you missed:  you cannot go back.  No 
matter how vivid it lives in your mind, it isn't there.  It likely never was.  Keep 
turning over rocks and you will eventually startle a snake. Are you sure you want to 
walk this road, old friend? -- Nile

Commission -- Any chance you could print a current listing of teams and managers?  I 
seem to have misplaced mine, and I want to be sure I only down-challenge the teams 
that I hate. -- Den

     We will try to get one together for next round. -- Ed.

Twisted Asylum -- Yikes, your team has had to deal with more dead bodies than my 
gardner before he met with an unexpected accident for digging where he shouldn't. -- 
Den

Darfart -- I miss a single turn and you somehow parlay that luck into the current top 
team.  Some people are just lucky and smelly at the same time.  And, you are the most 
avoided team?  Looks like I am going to have to turn up my down-challenges another 
notch. -- Den
