                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Hey everybody, watch out for CEYLON, who flew 
up 18 points in the rankings after mashing HOBO JOE like a melon.  Keep your eye on 
this gal.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was HOBO JOE, who dropped 17 
points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with CEYLON.  Well, if ya don't 
shows up at the laundromat, ya can'ts wash yer clothes.  BAKER'S DOZEN did not fight 
this week so his title was forfeit.  It's a proud day for the WANDERERS stable, as 
their warrior, WALKING THE DOG, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  Can you believe 
they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid TOWER OF SNAKES, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does KATI-TEI really have that 
many liars?  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause CALL 
ME JIMMY beats feet every time TOWER OF SNAKES smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  And 
who is this HARVESTER you ask, with 73 points and a 13-30-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I 
could tell!  Challenging down 20 points was HOFFA.  Pretty soon he'll be using two 
shields and selling 'T.P.:  The only way to clean up' pins.  Definition of petty:  
HOFFA won victory over THE DUTCHMAN, a mismatch of 20 points.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes 
and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  Its been 
fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you worked up for Snide 
Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster

Your bidding is thy honor, Lord Bane. -- Cognus

Whew, only five dead.  We may survive, if we all take vitamins and do healthy stuff.

One-four, which is actually BETTER than last time.  Tedious. -- Walking the Dog
P.S.  I blame my loss to the Virginal Concubine on her perfume.  My dog was
FASCINATED by that scent, and he wouldn't listen to me at all.

                   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.
