                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, RODEKI?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see BEER win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, BEER beat ANVIL and 
ANVIL lost 7 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, 
RODEKI may be getting bland, as EARLY OUT stays top dog in the city.  I'm not in a 
very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, 
don't you, RODEKI?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, SILVER LADY was this turn's most challenged warrior.  
Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  Now here's guts and stupidity all rolled into 
one, GO FISH challenged up 34 to take on LONG-N-SLIM of THE SOVEREIGN.  But here's a 
pretty tale--GO FISH did lose the fight, but gained 5 worth of recognition.  Some 
long shots can pay off, I guess.  I guess I can give a little credit to JEAN HARLOW 
of ALFREDO'S SEXY BABES for challenging up by 22 to DOWNER.  JEAN HARLOW lost to get 
30 points of recognition.  And we have THE BIG WHEEL in a challenge, going down 8 
points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought THE BIG WHEEL showed great skill and 
promise when he overcame REDCAP.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of RODEKI.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in your 
scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Harby -- I feel like a complete moron.  Styles of writing can be identified like a
fingerprint, if closely paid attention to.  It's taken me this long (too long) to
snap that you're not Harby the Dwarven miner, but none other than Jorja herself.  I
speculated about you being Spot awhile back, but you totally threw me for a loop with
Harby.  Well played, Jorja, well played indeed! -- Scorpio *giving a standing
ovation*
P.S.  Please don't tell me you're also Coach as well.  lol  I doubt it, 'cause his
W-L ratio isn't like all of your others (another pattern). *smile*

So Coach, seeing that you only favor offensives for the quick skill upgrades, why
don't you challenge yourself to style types you don't normally favor? -- Scorpio
*knocking back some bourbon*

Two-three, and THIS is an improvement!  If this arena were more active, we'd retire
to our mine shafts and let other people fight.  Damn.  What a bummer. -- Harby

                   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!
