                                      SPY REPORT

TEMPORAL DISTORTION!  The unofficial, official report coming from all the major news 
outlets is "Temporal Distortion."  What is a temporal distortion?  No, really!  That 
was not a cute, rhetorical set up, I truly want to know!  Whatever it may be, we are 
here now and Seam arena has seen some ACTION!  Welcome back, my pretties, is all I 
know to say at this point!

Maguvial seems to have made good use of his downtime.  He got the lucky opportunity to 
fight for the throne against Bloodblind from Way of All Flesh.  It was a quick title 
bout, but I'm guessing the gladiators were a little jittery after the break.  Congrats 
to Maguvial and the Darque Knights guild on his ascension.

Darque Knights and Way of All Flesh also find themselves in the discussion for the 
turn's avoids.  It looks as if Darque Knights had better things to do than accept 
challenges from Way of All Flesh.  Perhaps this avoidance led to the title match being 
a random match up.  My sources tell me Bumble Rumble of Philanthrolords received the 
most challenges this turn.  Shadowdancer got through the crowd of challenges and faced 
Bumble Rumble on the sands.  After two minutes, Shadowdancer emerged victorious.

Death did not take the evening off, but he may have been late to the party.  The 
stoppage has thrown everyone's schedule into disarray!  Three warriors bid farewell 
this turn.  Two deaths came via the Dark Arena, and the fresh gladiator, Midnight 
Lily, from the Lost Sentinels guild was the only fighter to die during the daylight 
fights.  Even with a long break in the fight cycles, some guilds did not forget their 
blood debts.  Cobra Monsoon from 7th Sanctum feuded Melanroh of Philanthrolords.  
Cobra came up short on his revenge bid.  The other feud belonged to Harmonious Jade of 
Wyld Masquerade.  Jade blood feuded Brn Von Speedster, former Duelmaster and current 
member of the I'm Not Eggbert guild.  Harmonious Jade won the battle and avenged her 
fallen comrade.

The report is a short one, my sweets, but I look forward to writing longer expositions 
in the weeks to come.  May the gods smile upon each of you.  Until next time!

Blackhart -- Your piracy skills must be comparable to your managing skills, which is 
to say horrible.  No, no, no.  We have zero plans to grow anything.  We are going to 
take, take, take.  Piece by bloody piece. -- Master Darque

Pixelbenders -- Congrats on a successful feud fight.  We anticipate more, since we 
have downed 2 of your warriors. -- Darque Knights

Ulvsblakk -- Looking at your name causes my head to hurt.  I had to end that one 
quickly for my peace of mind. -- Shadowdancer

Devoured -- We are now tied.  We may have to go again in the future to break the
