                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome TRICORUS.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Biff!  Pow!  TRICORUS 
watched with glee as THE FINAL FRONTIER got knocked off top spot by DECEIVERS!  Ya 
gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the 
pain!  DECEIVERS is now ranked 1st with a 5-0-2 turn.  What's with BEER BELLY?  He 
actually beat THE FINAL FRONTIER's Q, and walked away with 24 more points from the 
fight.  Try as he might, VETERAN MERCENARY wasn't good enough at persuading NOG to 
step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up 
fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Who will dare fight BAIT, after it returned from the Dark 
Arena?  (For the record 1-0-1 is 33, and has it points) BEER BELLY proved too 
determined for Q.  Q was lucky to go in the ring, with 7-3-0 to his credit.  He will 
be remembered.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight 
dirty.   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  TRICORUS 
is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Remember--a good 
fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Ed -- That better?  So sorry I wasn't sending in plain text; my bad.  I thought I 
already had it set up that all my ads were automatically being converted to plain text 
prior to sending them.  I just now noticed that was not the case; sorry about that.  
You should not be seeing any unwanted formatting from me again in the future. --

     Much appreciated! -- Ed

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.
