                                      SPY REPORT

     Hello, my pretties!  It is an absolute pleasure, as always, to see you once 
again.  I have been enjoying the beautiful weather and the changing of the leaves.  
Autumn has such beautiful colors to enjoy, which means the harvest season is upon us.  
This change also means "other" things are upon us as well.  By next cycle, the dead 
will have walked the sands of Alastari once more.  Why Sheila Greywand needs and 
allows such things is a mystery, but she has protected us thus far from the dark 
forces of Chaos, so I see no reason to doubt her now.  Let's talk about a more cheery 
subject--Seam's 35th turn!
     We have a new Duelmaster!  While his fighting prowess has enamored us this cycle, 
his fashion sense leaves much to be desired. PROF. MONKEYPANTS takes the throne on 
recognition after defeating PUCKER & BLOAT from PIXELBENDERS.  PROF. MONKEYPANTS won 
in a 1 minute fight to replace our former Duelmaster, SIF from DEITIES AND DEMIGODS. 
SIF lost to another member of the I'M NOT EGGBERT squad, BRN VON SPEEDSTER.  The good 
BVS, as I've come to call him, fought his last turn in Seam and now heads to the Isle.  
Was PROF. MONKEYPANTS taking the throne the end goal of some cunning machinations by 
Vlad and his boys over at the I'M NOT EGGBERT guild?  Yeah, I'm not sure he could pull 
it off either, but stranger things have happened.
     DEITIES AND DEMIGODS is the most avoided stable for turn 35.  I'M NOT EGGBERT 
makes another appearance in our spy report by being the team that avoided D&D the 
most.  No one still wants to be the top team as we have yet another tie for the number 
1 position.  LOSERS drop down from the tie, while Thirsty Thugs move up after a 4-1 
turn and put them even with DARQUE KNIGHTS over the last 3 turns with a 9-6-0 record.  
A 3-2 turn moves I'M NOT EGGBERT into the  top 5 with PIXELBENDERS slipping 1 space to 
4th.  LOSERS had the largest fall at 4 leaving the first place tie to occupy the 5th 
spot.
     Death only visited us in the DARK ARENA this round.  There were 4 deaths and none 
of the fighters had more than 5 fights under their belts.  The recruiting offices were 
crawling when I came to the arena this morning, now I know why.  Perhaps we will see 
the beginnings of greatness next turn with all the fresh faces!  On the opposite side 
of the news spectrum, we bid farewell to BRN VON SPEEDSTER.  He fought his last turn 
in Seam and is now headed to the Isle of the Eye to continue his training as a Lord 
Protector of Alastari.  Congrats, good sir, and may you find success in all future 
endeavors.  What is considered success to an immortal Lord Protector?  I have no idea!
     That is all I have to report this turn, my darlings.  I will see you back here 
next turn for more exciting action in New Seam.  Can the ill-dressed Duelmaster defend 
his throne and find a better tailor? Will the deadlock ever be broken with the top 
teams?  Come back next turn and find out!

                                          --Sidara Brightbell

Flo -- Another bold challenge from your team!  How progressive of you. -- Stero 
Banewood

Mr. Whipple -- I know the pickings are slim in this arena, so I'm trying not to be 
concerned your team has challenged twice in as many turns.  Can I help you ladies and 
gents with something or just I just consider these challenges at veiled attempts at 
courtship? -- Hahari Hel

Prof. Monkeypants -- The pants are . . . quite, um . . . distracting.  And, tacky.  
And, I hate you. -- Xad Bronzewolf

Rube Barrow -- Bigger stick, if you are able. -- Artarian Grey

All -- Welcome my newest recruit, Ra-Ra Rainwar.  She is new to Alastari.  I 
discovered her tribe whilst traveling the far reaches of Ghea. -- Master Darque
