                             Notes from the arena champ.

Seam,

Never in a million years did I think to sit upon this throne.  Ha!  I know I'm 
tempting the gods when I say this, but I fully expected to dead by now (probably just 
signed my own death warrant).  Anyway, I need to hold the throne at least one more 
turn to get an invite to the Isle or so say my manager.

I have no idea who Darque challenged this turn, but you can be sure I asked to avoid 
Deities and Demigods.  I feel another match with those brutes would be tempting fate 
(see comments above).

Oh well, hopefully this will end on a high note for me and I'll get my invite and 
immortality.  On the flip side, this could all end with me on the pointy side of a 
short sword.  You never know!

                                          -- Duelmaster Shadowdancer
                                             Darque Knights
                                             Extreme Pessimist

                                      SPY REPORT

Good afternoon, my lovelies!  As always, it is wonderful to see you and I'm not just 
blowing enchanting dust at you when I say such things!  I truly love to come into Seam 
and share all the glorious news for the turn's action with you.  Speaking of glorious 
news, let's jump into it, shall we?

Standing tall atop Seam's warriors is our Duelmaster, Shadowdancer.  He rose quietly 
through the ranks and seized upon an opportunity for the throne last turn, taking it 
from Gilgamesh.  Nothing changes this turn as Shadowdancer successfully defends his 
title and becomes Seam's second immortal warrior.  Congrats to our newest Lord 
Protector Shadowdancer and his manager Master Darque!  With Shadowdancer leaving us 
next turn for the Isle, we will certainly have a new champion next turn.  The question 
will be, which of our Challenger Champions will step forward and seize the glory for 
themselves?!?

Deities and Demigods stands tall as the most avoided team this turn.  Looking at the 
turn reports, it is not difficult to understand why they are feared.  Apart from the 
throne, they hold the highest recognized warrior with Loki, the most popular warrior 
overall and this week with Gilgamesh!  Who avoided them the most?  Believe it or not, 
Philanthrolords!  Our popularity leader is popular with more than just the fans.  The 
warriors in the arena wanted more than an autograph though as Gilgamesh is this turn's 
most challenged warrior.

There were no regular arena deaths this turn.  The Dark Arena was bustling with 
activity as five warriors were sent to the night fights.  The most notable, 
experienced, and surprising has to be Balsa of Lost Sentinels, who leaves us at 8-11-
3.  On the rankings front, Thirsty Thugs breaks last turn's 4-way tie for the top spot 
after a 4-1-0 performance.  Deities and Demigods, along with Philanthrolords hold fast 
at 2nd place.  Huckle's Cats were absent this turn and Darque Knights rounds out the 
top 5.  There were no major shifts up or down with only a few teams moving single 
spots up and down.

Time for me to fly away, my sweets!  I want to see you here for more exciting action 
next turn.  We will surely have a new champion, but I also hope to see some new teams 
and warriors as well.  Mark your calendar, dearies!  Two weeks from now, I hope to see 
you!  Until then, on behalf of the Commission and Yellow Press, I say goodbye, my 
lovelies!  

                                          -- Sidara Brightbell
