                                      SPY REPORT

     Hello, my sweeties!  How are you on this fine autumn day?  I certainly love the 
cooler weather and the beautiful colors.  It makes for a fine day at the arena when 
you walk through town and see the bright hues, smell the aroma of pies in the air, and 
are free from the oppressive heat.  If you cannot tell, this is my favorite season!  
So while I have this chipper demeanor, let's take a look at this turn's action in the 
Seam arena.

     Last turn, THE OGRE SPRITE took the throne in a random matchup.  History repeats 
itself again this turn as the title fight was another random matchup.  THE OGRE SPRITE 
fought SIF in a 1 minute, mismatched fight.  It was not even close as SIF of DEITIES 
AND DEMIGODS becomes the new Duelmaster of Seam.  Congrats to SIF and to his manager, 
Deep Thought.  SIF also takes over as our Chartered Recognition Leader.  Anytime a 
warrior snags the throne is a good turn, but taking home another award is icing on the 
proverbial cake (I hope it's cream cheese icing).

     The Commission sent over a few new golems this week for compiling the fight 
information.  There are still a few kinks to work out with them.  As such, I have no 
idea who was the most avoided team or who avoided the most.  I'm also missing 
information on who is the most challenged warrior.  Not doubt we will get these 
hiccups corrected for next time, but until then, let me share a little arena history 
with you on avoids.  The top 3 most avoided teams in New Seam's short history are BIG 
LAKE JUSTIFY (6); I'M NOT EGGBERT (6); and BOURNE OF HATE (5).  The 3 teams that have 
avoided the most are DARQUE KNIGHTS (5); CHUCK'S PINUPS (4); and UNLIKELY HEROES and 
21ST AMENDMENT (3). In the most challenged department, there is a 3-way tie for first 
place among 7TH SANCTUM, DARQUE KNIGHTS, and PHILANTHROLORDS (3).

     In the death department, we do have news to report, and it is guaranteed to make 
one manager unhappy.  Two deaths came via the Dark Arena this cycle.  DARQUE KNIGHTS 
apparently found Eggbert and sent him to the Dark Arena.  Aragorn was also unhappy 
with his newest recruit as PHILANTHROLORDS gave ZILCH his walking papers to fight by 
torchlight.  Those were the expected deaths, now onto the unexpected.  JOSEY WALES 
from THE OUTLAWS 3 bloodfeuded RAYNER of DEADLINE for killing his teammate last turn.  
RAYNER was not ready to apologize or stand down as he executed JOSEY WALES in a 1 
minute bout.  As if that was not enough to process, Gunsmith gets to deal with the 
death of CALAMITY JANE as well, who fell to CRAQUELURE of PIXELBENDERS. Condolences to 
Gunsmith and THE OUTLAWS 3 and good luck in your upcoming feuds.

     There were a few inactive teams this turn along with some movement in the ranks.  
LOSERS and DARQUE KNIGHTS tied for the top team, after DARQUE KNIGHTS moved up a spot.  
Both teams have a 9-6-0 over the last 3 turns.  7TH SANCTUM and HUCKLE'S CATS were 
inactive this turn and both take up the last two places in the ranks.  Among the 
active teams, PIXELBENDERS jumped 5 spots into the 3rd position for the turn's largest 
gain.  Falling down the ranks, we witnessed PHILANTHROLORDS fall 6 ranks to 8th after 
a 1-4-0 outing this cycle.

     That is all there is to report, my lovelies!  I want to encourage each of you to 
write some personal ads.  A great compliment to the gladiatorial fights is a thriving 
social scene in and around the arena.  Good luck to each of you next cycle!  May your 
swords be sharp and your quarterstaffs every staffy as you face your opponents on the 
sands of Seam.  I'll see you next turn!
