                             Notes from the arena champ.

     So outta the blue this ad hominem guy attacks me and I says, "Hey you!  What's 
your problem, man?" cuz I've always been really clever with words thattaway, but I 
couldn't figure out why'd he challenge me?  Unprovoked even!  Like what'd I ever do to 
him to make him disrespect me? But then I realized maybe he challenged me just because 
I AM the duelmaster!  Well that kinda cynicalness don't live in my blood, so's the 
rest of my duelmasterness will be filled with great bigness of benevolence!  'Til the 
day I die I promise I will be the bestest and kindest duelmaster ever!  
     What's that?..... but I don't wanna retire..... so I'm done?.... I've more to 
offer.... it was such a rip here.... please don't take me away.... Aaaarghh!!!! 
     [so to death and obscurity, a.k.a. retirement, he goes] 

                                          -- Ring Lardner

                                      SPY REPORT

Good afternoon and welcome to Shadowspire!  It has been a pleasant afternoon of 
gladiatorial combat and I am here to give you all the relevant information to help you 
sort out all of the action!  Huard has the next few weeks off, so you get me for a few 
turns.  Who am I? Well, I'm the one that runs the Yellow Press, the boss, so to speak. 
You can just call me Phineas, or Mr. Rannulf if you are concerned with proper decorum.  
Enough introductions, let's talk about turn 315.

Since I am the official "Keeper of Records" in Shadowspire, I thought it would be a 
great time to update a few particulars as we work out way through this turn's spy 
report.  We will start with Duelmaster.

Ring Lardner got the call last turn, so we had to give him a proper send off.  He 
fought Grease Trap from Otto's Diner.  It was a short bout, so I assume Ring just 
wanted to end it so he could start packing for the Isle.  He beat Grease Trap in a 1-
minute bout.  Grease Trap's teammate, Pesto Pete, matched up with Evon.  This fight 
was our title match.  Pete was the top-ranked Challenger Champion coming into turn 
315, so it seems fitting.  It was a veteran vs. veteran matchup, fairly even according 
to the odd-makers, but Pesto Pete wasted no time taking the title for himself.  No 
graduation notice for Pete, so he has to defend the throne next turn.

Pesto Pete is part of Otto's Diner.  Pete gets the 32nd Duelmaster's title for the 
Diner, which is the highest among Shadowspire's teams. Cult of Bacchus, who lost the 
match to Pesto Pete, is in second with 25 titles.  Dragonbane Guild and Darque Ages 
hold firm at 3rd place with 18 titles each.  In terms of Duelmasters and style, Otto's 
Diner holds the record for most Duelmasters by a single style among the active teams 
with 10 championships for his TPs.

The most avoided team was Kill 'Em All, who was inactive this turn. Where has Weirdo 
gone?  Is that a safe question to ask?  Who knows, but they the Kill 'Em All guild was 
mostly avoided by Pray the Gods. While Kill 'Em All and Pray the Gods are common team 
names in our avoids section, I think it is going to be a long time before anyone 
catches Detective Kellumbo's arena record of 47 for most avoided team. On the flip 
side, a few teams are within striking distance of taking the record for "team avoiding 
most."  The current record of 41 is held by Warmasters.

Darque Ages is the top team over the last three turns at 12-3-0.  They had a nice 4-1-
0 this cycle.  The Commodores are coming on strong, moving into 2nd from 6th.  The 5-
0-1 turn they posted helped greatly! Wicked Martyrs moved up big as well with a 4-1-0.  
Non-winning records round out the top 5.  OHS Alumni holds 4th place by virtue (or 
vice) of 2 kills over Otto's Diner.  The best 3-turn record belongs to Kellumbo's 
Kids.  They pulled off the elusive 15-0-0 on turn 10.  No one has achieved better than 
13-2 since then.  Looks like there is a challenge on the board for all you managers 
that like a goal!

Time for me to sign off, dear readers.  I will probably see you next turn.  I never 
know if Huard is going to return to work on time or if he will arrive fashionably late 
(which is normally 3 days after the scheduled time).  I guess I could call Sidara or 
Ori to fill in for him from one of the other no-tourney arenas.  But, I'm already 
here, so why not me?  Until next time, duel fans!
