                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  MIDDLE WAY 17 after a sorry 0-0-0 might want 
to consider abandoning the sands and taking up singing the 'Can't fight no more' 
blues!  What's a move up by 4 you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for 
celebration, according to PORN IN A BARN.  Well, ITS GREEK TO ME, you can show this 
to your parents.  But you'll have to do better than 3-2-1 if you want your names in 
this space again...  Practice pays for MAIN EVENT, who pummelled SERGEANT 1, to 
pocket 21 points.  SERGEANT 1 certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after 
losing to MAIN EVENT and losing 18 points in the process!  THIS CAMEL found out that 
JHANS isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  Word has 
it one team in JHANS is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death. 
I'll bet it works.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Perhaps the warriors of MEDAL OF HONOR J11 should 
take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of PORN IN A BARN, so did that sorry team shy from 
MEDAL OF HONOR J11 Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral 
hygiene?  Whatever it is, NO BEST is the most challenged warrior.  Them's the breaks, 
REBUILD.  Expecting fair challenges from PORN IN A BARN is evidently too much to ask. 
Warriors of JHANS!  Do you wish your reputations tainted by the base challenge of 
GRAB THE BULL?   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  More important duties call me.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid JHANS farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Folks, I am leaving Duel II for personal reasons.  I have no idea whether I may 
return, but don't count on it.  I will remain active in Lapur (29) and Jade Mountain 
(75), and that's it.  I have enjoyed knowing you.  Fare you well. -- Jorja

                   SEAM (DM 20) REOPENS AS A NEW NO-TOURNEY ARENA!

Seam (DM 20) will be re-opening soon as a no-tourney DM arena!  If you enjoy arena 
play without tournament interference, this arena is for you!  Only rookie teams may 
enter this arena, and all managers must sign the "no-tourney" pledge.  Turn 0 is due 
on May 4 (overviews only) and Turn 1 is due on May 18.  

To avoid confusion, all old inactive teams which were in Seam have travelled to 
Mazgourrah (DM 77). 

Seam is the newest arena to join the no-tourney group of arenas and will process on 
opposite weeks with Shadowspire (DM 81), the original no-tourney arena.  Other no-
tourney arenas include Telorinthe (DM 83), a slow arena, and Storm Rock (DM 107), for 
ADM warriors.  

Join in the fun!  Send in your new rollup along with the pledge soon so you can get in 
on the ground floor of this new arena!

   ********************************************************************************

                               NO-TOURNEY ARENA PLEDGE

    * I pledge that I will not send warriors from this team to a tournament, nor 
      will I use a tournament prize on a warrior from this team.
    * I pledge to run a full team when I run turns in this arena.  If circumstances 
      preclude my running less than a full team, I will notify the Player Committee.
    * I agree to abide by the decisions of the Player Committee.
    * I understand that any warrior that participates in a tournament or receives 
      a tournament prize shall be sent to the Dark Arena until they are dead.
