                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for URSULINA TRELL, who flew up 12 points in the rankings after mashing 
DANGEROUS CRIMINAL like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya know, some days it 
doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  CUNEIFORM lost to VETERAN MERCENARY and drops 
11 points.  What does the Duelmaster and Piltdown Man have in common?  They are both 
the most challenged apes in human history!  Heyheyhey!  Drawing on all of hers 
experience as a 22-10-0 warrior, TIAMAT'S DEMISE went for the Duelmastership against 
JENNA KUUL this week.  Our battling duelmaster JENNA KUUL has managed to hold the 
title, fending off TIAMAT'S DEMISE's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next 
time, MESOPOTAMIA.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid 
aiming at that location.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Did you hear that MESOPOTAMIA was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of MESOPOTAMIA's warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you who 
like math, try this one:  MESOPOTAMIA + Weapons That go Boom = MOTLEY KREWE + Avoid 
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they 
will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in SNOWBOUND have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Okay, so I may not be the 
world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  And 
remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've 
heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Mesopotamia -- From the fight report, it should have been obvious that Sandreena was
not trying to kill "Life After Death".  No death intent statement, he died in the
infromary, was attacking non-vital areas etc. As a bloodfeud, you sent a champion
(11-5-1,68) warrior against initiate Sandreena (1-0-1,23).  A down challenge of 45
pts!  Not only that you intended to murder Sandreena!  Where is the honor in that?
Is that what this "Game" is all about? -- Spectre, mgr Motley Krewe

Two-three, but at least no DEATHS.  We don't have enough people here to spare, and
besides, with warm weather coming, we can't KEEP the dead ones here.  We have to send
them out to sea, and then we get complaints from the fishermen about littering, and
feeding the fish stuff that isn't good for them.  Those fishermen are always
complaining.  I think they spend more time complaining than fishing.  And you should
hear what the hunters have to say when we try to bury the dead up along the edges of
the glacier!  "Inviting the trolls"!  Bah! -- Jenna Kuul

     Nonsense!  Everyone knows trolls don't eat carrion. -- Arenamistress Tora

Cuneiform -- I didn't mean to mess you up quite that much, but at first glance I
thought you were a mudpie.  Sorry. -- Jenna Kuul
P.S.  Okay, a little sorry.

Ah, and I see we should congratulate Tiamat's Demise.  So, congratulations. -- Jenna
and the rest of the team (no idea where Jorja's taken herself off to)

Newlin Ohm -- Keep up that back talk and I'll throw you out of the game, too. --

     Zeb Karan around the big table.  Arena staff of all ranks and titles sat and 
stared at each other:  arenamasters, standbys, Dark Arena warriors, stewards and 
infirmarians, even the maintenance crew.  This was not the first time they'd met like 
this, and it probably wouldn't be the last.
     "So this is it again, is it?" Lew Voth asked.  "Less than seven years since they 
closed Dwes Eg to new teams, and now they're closing Blackstone?"
     "Only to new teams," one of the spymasters pointed out.  "And it's necessary.  
There are several file rooms we haven't been able to enter in months because they're 
too full of team records."
     "Nothing you couldn't fix with a lighted match," Jame Rinvar suggested.  
Technically he should not have been there, since he'd taken over full time as the 
arenamaster of Shadowspire.  But no one wanted to tell him to leave.
     "We may NEED those records one of these days," Chief Steward Hesselrod protested.  
"We can't burn RECORDS."
     "I could," Rinvar said.
     "But you won't."  Voth pinned him with a stare.  "Don't stir up trouble for its 
own sake, Jame."
     Rinvar raised his hand in a gesture of surrender.  "I'll be good, Lew."
     "When are they shutting down Blackstone?"
     "To new teams only, remember--the old ones will keep fighting if their managers 
want to pay the fees.  This week.  Maybe next week.  Hard to be sure, when you travel 
from Alastari to anywhere else, there's a time distortion effect.  But probably this 
week.  Same operating rules as Dwes Eg (82):  no new teams in, but the old ones can 
recruit new members.  New teams will go to the new place--"  Zeb Karan cast a look of 
enquiry around the room.
     "Jasper Gulch," a steward said.
     "Right.  New teams will go to Jasper Gulch.  I'm not sure the day for it, probably 
'opposite' Blackstone in the schedule.  A regular two-week cycle.  Teams can be 
transfered in from regular arenas, I suppose, but not OUT."
     Voth nodded.  "We can work with this."
     "Beats not working."

                   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.
