     "What Is Our Fate?"
     That is the question on the minds of the members of the Aaarrgh 2 Hammerz guild.
     Word travels fast and the rumors now were that the Aaarrgh 2 Hammerz guild has at 
the very least two more turns to prove themselves worthy of staying active.
     The rumor being that Hammer would no longer throw his gold coins away on any 
stable that did not prove themselves to be at the very least an entertaining view when 
its fighters strode forth on the arena sands to prove their worth and merit.
     Fact was now more than rumor that the veteran manager Hammer had not only 
departed from Alastari for parts unknown, but that he had sent a message to his long 
time friend Storm Crow to assemble a team of Shagornan Elf warriors to enter the 
upcoming Stormcrowe Slaughterhouse Five contest in DM 45 being hosted by Master 
Darque.
     Rumor had it that Hammer was on his way to meet with another old veteran manager 
friend in an off-world gathering place for adventurers, in quest of a partner for the 
SSH5 contest in DM 45.
     Whether the rumors and facts were indeed true, it was evident that the members of 
the Aaarrgh 2 Hammerz guild would have to step up their game both individually and as 
a team, if they hoped to remain active very much longer!

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Good afternoon my fellow gladiators!

     Another long spell of not having a Cult of Bacchus warrior on the DM throne has 
ended! 
     First off, a thank you to Wyld Turkey for that easy win which allowed me to 
ascend to the throne.  I shall miss beating up on the AA as I go off to my beach villa 
and enjoy retirement.
     Schendle, I know there was talk about me giving you a shot at the title on my 
last turn here in Shadowspire with a bloodfued challenge, well DeGotti vetoed that, so 
you shall get a dance with Warwulf instead!  Unless you manage to avoid this turns 
bloodfeud too!
     And now the part you have all been waiting for... my stats...
     11-10-11-11-17-9-15 of pure Parry-Strike power.  I am +5 Attack with a couple of 
other bonuses in other skill areas as well.  The Commission says I like a VL offensive 
effort and a VL activity level which goes very nicely with the Dec tactic and my Rip 
learns!  I like to hack at my opponents with a BS. 
     To whomever I face this turn, good luck you'll need it with my amazing ability!

                                        -- Lord Protector, and the bane of Shanghaied,
                                           Hollowsoul

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you ever get the desire to experience first-hand the feelings associated with 
a slow death, meet with the Yellow Press Ombudsman for lunch. It is similar to staring 
into the eternal darkness of the universe.  This darkness not only stares back, but 
tells you about its wife and kids for two hours.  It then leaves you with an 
exorbitant restaurant bill and the suspicions of a severe alcohol problem.  Oh, and 
did I mention the fact that it blends your soul with the torment of a thousand hells?  
Eh, enough small talk, there is some arena action to discuss! 
     Hollowsoul has left us for the Isle, but not before taking his final laps around 
the arena and on the sands of battle.  Blackjack Johnson of Shanghaied posted a 
challenge to the departing Lord Protector.  Hollowsoul did not refuse; I mean why 
would you, you're immortal and leaving the arena, what's to lose?  An arena loss seems 
like a trivial thing when you are immortal.  All that build up to say that Blackjack 
Johnson beat Hollowsoul to take the throne!  Congrats to Blackjack Johnson, who is 
managed by Blackhart.  The good news is Blackjack Johnson can throw caution to the 
wind and accept all challenges next turn because he is now a Lord Protector.  Another 
congrats is in order, so congrats! 
     The most avoided team sees Inebriation running to and fro in the arena from the 
big, bad Cult of Bacchus.  I keep trying to find new ways to discuss the most avoided, 
but there aren't many options out there, so there you have it.  Straight to the point!  
Maybe some pyrotechnics would spruce it up a bit?  The most challenged warrior this 
turn was Horrid of Wicked Martyrs.  He is sitting at 10-8-0, so I'm not sure what is 
so appealing about him, unless it is a "style" thing.  Who knows what runs through the 
mind of an arena manager?  Who WANTS to know what runs through the mind of an arena 
manager? 
     Death was ambivalent... no, whimsical... still not right.  Ahringol put 
Shadowspire in the friend zone this week with only 1 death in the main arena.  There 
were a number of Dark Arena deaths, but who really counts those fights?  Oh wait, I 
do!  Stink-I from Cult of Bacchus died at the hands of Sky Boom from Search the Sky.  
Both were rookies, but Sky Boom lives to fight another day and Stink-I becomes a 
statistic.  Life can be cruel like that.... 
     Otto's Diner takes over the top spot after a 3-2 effort this turn.  Pray the Gods 
moves up to 2nd, also on the merits of a 3-2 turn.  Shanghaied is the new kid on the 
Top 5 block moving up to 3rd from the 8th spot.  A 4-1-1 turn helps immensely, but the 
fight of note would be Lookout Larry's victory in the Dark Arena that contributed to 
the good turn and the single kill.  The Commodores and Darque Ages each drop a spot, 
but remain to round out the top teams. The biggest gain belongs to Dragonbane Guild, 
who moved up 8 places to 8th.  The biggest drop in the ranks, among active teams, goes 
to Kill Em All.  They fell from 6th to the 12th position. 
     I want to take the time to welcome the new team, Land of Prydain!  You have 
entered the most glorious Shadowspire arena, may your stay with us be an amazing 
experience!  It is time for me to conclude.  I still need to wash off the lingering 
smell of bureaucracy from my clothing.  Until next time, dear readers!

DeGotti -- Thank you for rolling out the welcome wagon.  I did look twice to see if 
you had any sheep in it, though! -- Weirdo

Kid Arcane -- Your spotlights add another level of immersion to the game, and are part 
of what makes the Shadowspire arena so special.  Thank you for writing them, and may 
you continue with many many more! -- Weirdo

Osksi Noble -- I wish all my matches were against Nobles. -- Psycho Styx

Monkey Tree Monk -- Looks like I made a monkey outta you! -- Malakai

If there was ever a sign from the gods that Nala needed to go, it was her losing to a 
Big Laker.  RIP Nala -- Vlad

Hollowsoul -- Bring it, you overrated windbag.  You'll see me at 13-8-4 and showing 
the city what a real DM looks like on the throne. -- Schendle

White Lightning -- Well, that was a productive session! -- Schendle

Powder Monkey -- I appreciate you signing up for target practice. -- Shem

Orlando -- Nice to return the favor and tack a loss on your team's scorecard! -- Janna

Fast hack em 9 -- That just isn't a match I like.  Go hack somebody else.  - Tristan

Eclipse -- Sometimes the claws come out.  I don't like being challenged. -- Stormclaw

Broccoli Rob -- Broccoli?  Who expects to fight a weird greenish sort of vegetable 
mutant?  I was expecting a massive dragon or brutal warrior or some such thing.  I was 
ready to crush.  But then out comes . . . you.  There wasn't even a little wyrm hidden 
in the leafy stuff.  Next time I will come prepared with a salad fork! -- Wyrm Crusher

BlackHart -- .2% is all that separates us now! Get ready for that fall! -- DeGotti

The Empress Wu -- That's how our first fight should have ended! -- Warwulf

4 total fights for the Cult last turn. 2 vs Inebriation and 2 vs Darque Ages, with 4 
victories tallied for Bacchus! Strange to face only two different teams in one turn! 
-- DeGotti

Two-Ton Timmons -- True! -- B Feud Bait Hammer

Lookout Larry -- It will not be my fault if you end up fighting by Torch Light in the near future! -- Perfect 10 Hammer

All -- I am out of the country for the next few weeks, so I will not be commenting on 
any fights, as I do not have access to the fight results!  As far as the fate of my 
stable in Shadowspire?  Time will tell after I return to the USA and find the time to 
examine the fights of all my active guilds!  However, the rumors are true, so check 
out the DM 45 Newsletter for details! -- Hammer, mgr Aaarrgh 2 Hammerz
