                                      SPY REPORT

     Hello, my pretties!  It is a beautiful day here at the Seam arena, and I want to 
welcome one and all to the glorious gladiatorial games!  I love weather such as this, 
especially on game day.  The sky is blue, the birds are singing, some unfortunate soul 
is screaming because he just learned his manager is sending him to the Dark Arena 
later this evening.  Ah, music to my ears!  Let me share with you what has happened 
today! 
     Thor, our former Duelmaster, is off to the Isle of the Eye.  He has fought his 
last in Seam.  Lord Protector Thor was challenged by Opacity: 100% of Pixelbenders for 
the title.  It was a long bout of 6 minutes, but LP Thor was victorious!  Since 
Opacity was unable to topple the Duelmaster, the throne was up for grabs to the most 
highly recognized fighter.  Our secondary title match became a contest between THAT 
GUY and Merciless of Lost Sentinels.  Well, THAT GUY came out on top.  I will give 
honor where honor is due, and announce Prof. Monkeypants as our newest Duelmaster, and 
the newest Lord Protector from Seam!  As such, we will have a new champion next turn. 
     The Losers were the most avoided team this cycle.  They were avoided a total of 7 
times, but that was only spread between two teams -- Thirsty Thugs and Darque Knights.  
In the end, Thirsty Thugs avoided them the most.  These golems are oh so helpful with 
such information.  The most challenged warrior this turn was Asmodesaurus of Devil 
Dinosaurs.  Quite a feat when you consider there were 12 challenges out of 25 fights 
(excluding the Dark Arena).  There were no new teams this round, but welcome back to 
Cartoon Chaos! 
     This turn is quickly turning into vanilla ice cream with white sprinkles.  There 
isn't much standing out.  There were no deaths outside of the Dark Arena.  There were 
a few massive up-challenges that need mentioning, so those can be red and blue 
sprinkles on this cone of mediocrity!  Stero Banewood of Darque Knights challenged up 
44 points (yes, you read that correctly) to fight Bananas Gorilla of Huckle's Cats.  
While the crowd laughed uncomfortably when the fight was announced, they were cheering 
by the end as Stero beat Bananas Gorilla in a 4 minute match.  The other noteworthy 
challenge came from Ben Nevis, who looked up in the rankings 20 points to fight Rayner 
of Deadline.  No happy ending this time, but Ben gained a point of recognition in the 
loss for such a gutsy challenge. 
     I'm Not Eggbert makes a big 5 spot leap to take over the top team spot, which is 
the largest for the turn.  Their 4-1-0 turn helped immensely with the gain.  Thirsty 
Thugs, the former top team, dropped down to 5th after a 1-4-0 showing.  Lost Sentinels 
also fell significantly with a 2-3-0 effort.  These two teams tied for the biggest 
team slip for the turn in the rankings.  The rest of the top 5 remained relatively 
unchanged.  Huckle's Cats remains in 2nd place, while Darque Knights move up to 3rd 
and Devil Dinosaurs to 4th. 
     That is it for me, my sweets!  I must be off to enjoy this wonderful weather.  
Debby Tonte is supposed to stop by and give me a few sunbathing tips and educate me on 
proper summer mixology.  I hope to see each of you next turn.  Prof. Monkeypants never 
misses a chance to pontificate, so I'm sure we'll have an address from him next turn 
too.  We will also have a new Duelmaster, but who will it be?  Find out next turn!
