                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in ERINIKA this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the difference, as 
DARQUE WATERS is pushed out of top team by DUDS, who came from 2nd with a 1-1-0 this 
turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for THE 
BEGINNING, whose 0-1-0 this turn dropped them by 5 into 10th.  WHO DA MAN? stable has 
parlayed this turn's 3-1-0 into a 7 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up 
to 3rd place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, BUGG-SHASH fought M. CHARDINEE and 
gained 16 points and contributed to GREAT OLD ONES' 1-1-1.  AYI'IG has lost to STINK, 
falling 3 points, while helping make GREAT OLD ONES a 1-1-1 turn.  Due to his absence 
and inability to defend the throne, ENDU ENDU has lost the title of Duelmaster.  And 
not without some honor, DEATHFROMABOVE now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster 
of ERINIKA.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their 
losing fighters do dishes at The Swinging Aardvark until they win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the DARQUE WATERS stable was the most 
avoided team this turn.  Come on ERINIKA, what are you afraid of?  And avoiding 
DARQUE WATERS more than any other team we find DUDS.  ERINIKA, are we going to 
accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, take notice that KLEPTO 
MAN from WHO DA MAN? was ERINIKA's most challenged warrior this turn.  Tsk, tsk, tsk. 
THE BIG BANG, does your manager know you're challenging down 21 points to fight 
KLEPTO MAN from WHO DA MAN??  Well, will you look at this, THE BIG BANG was bested by 
KLEPTO MAN, and THE BEGINNING will have to explain why they made such a challenge in 
the first place.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  
You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in ERINIKA, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe

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!
