                                     Aftermath

     "This just sucks rocks!" Astri slammed her smallish fist on the rugged round
tabletop.  Her neck was bent down until her nose almost touched the rough wood. "I
was ready to roll right over Pavil, too!" she moaned.
     "I can't believe it," muttered Legione.  "I STILL can't believe it!"
     "I didn't know that there was so MUCH paperwork involved," Monoceros frowned.
     "Believe it," Havoc growled. "It ain't like I planned it, but it happened and we
gotta make the best of it."
     "Do we?" Gargantia toyed absently with her empty flagon.  "I don't know if we
can make anything good out of this at all."
     "Wow. I thought the kids down in the Dragonbane hall hated me," Monoceros
giggled nervously.  "Now they must hate us all!"
     "Ya think?" Gargantia shook her head.
     "Monoceros, yer just a yellow punk!" Havoc roared. "Who knows what Dragonbane is
thinkin'?  Who CARES?!"
     "Probably Visionist cares," Astri sighed without lifting her head.
     Havoc snorted.  "We got bigger fish to fry.  For one thing, yer all goin' to be
fightin' unknowns next turn."
     "Unknowns?"  Legione frowned.  "What do you mean?"
     "We missed a turn," Monoceros shrugged.  "So we lose our right to challenge this
next turn.  Right?"
     "We're not challenging anyone next turn, that's for sure," nodded Gargantia.  "I
guess we're going to have to just trust to our luck and hope we draw decent
matchups."
     "We're in trouble, aren't we?" Maelstrom asked nobody in particular.
     "We're a bit past that," Gargantia replied.
     "We haven't had 'good' luck in a coon's age," sighed Astri, dropping her
forehead to the table with thud.  "I'm as good as dead."
     Maelstrom knit his thick brows together.  "What's a coon?"
     "Hey, I'm the one that has to face a bloodfeud," Monoceros grimaced.  "If
anyone's likely to die next turn, it'll be me."
     "Read about it in a picture book the Kid lent me," Astri responded.  She was
speaking into the wood; her lips just a few centimeters from the table.  At least,
Havoc noticed, she had closed her eyes.
     "Do you still have that book?" Maelstrom asked.  "I'd like to see it."
     "If that's the only way to stop your incessant whining about this bloodfeud,
then by all means, die!" Gargantia scowled.
     "Hey, is that what you call 'team spirit'?" cried Monoceros.
     "It's what I call 'guts'; why don't you try growing some?" she replied.
     "Calm down, Gargantia!  And the rest of ya--cut it out!"  Havoc kicked the table
leg, jarring Astri's face a bit.  He doubted it would leave much of a bruise.  He
took a quick, sliding step forward, the explosive sort of step that dramatically
increased the kinetic energy of his strikes.  Havoc snapped his arm forward, smacking
the back of Gargantia's hand with the edge of his palm and sending her flagon flying
across the room.
     The team froze as the tall cup bounced and rolled.  Every eye was on it until it
stopped, and then, slowly, inevitably, all eyes found their way to Havoc's.  He held
them for a moment longer, then turned away and stalked toward his office.
     "If I were you guys," he gritted, "I'd be busy practicin' instead o'
complainin'."  He slammed the door behind him as he quit the hall.
     The fighters avoided eye contact with each other.  Gargantia rubbed her hand,
flexing it and grimacing, but not uttering a sound.  After 20 seconds or so they
began to fidget.  One by one they left the hall; Monoceros was the first to leave.
     Of course, it took a few minutes for Maelstrom to realize that he was the only
one remaining.  Then, he left too.

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     You know the saying goes, "If you want to be the man, You must beat the Man."
Now I don't know how much of a man Vilmar was, but he was briefly your Duelmaster and
beat him I did.  And with very little effort.  I guess the other old saying is true
too, "The first cut's the deepest," and it only took one cut.
    I'm sure the question on most of your tiny minds is who is gonna get a shot at
the champ.  I don't think anyone is worthy.  Beordin has been slogging around the
arena for so long everyone in the arena uses his fights for a bathroom break.  Mickey
Slim?  Geron?  I think those new-comers haven't quite earned it...  Jake, I reckon,
will be busy wiping the blood off, and the Dragonbane trio is a second rate outfit at
best.
    That just leaves A loon, A Seasmstress and a Jubilex...  Hmmm, I think I've heard
that joke...

-- Slim Chance

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of SHADOWSPIRE.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Nothing is certain 
in SHADOWSPIRE, with changing loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new 
top team--WARMASTERS.  Good things come to those who fight well, as WARMASTERS can 
attest, moving up by 7.  MONSTER MANUAL had cause to celebrate, after BLINK DOG got 
16 points by beating RING LARDNER.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking 
and practice more, after losing 13 points to GARGANTIA.  (Discrete enough, CREDITS?) 
Like a flirtacious debutante, SHADOWSPIRE's Duelmaster SLIM CHANCE found itself the 
creature of the hour, being "invited to dance" 6 times!  The arena was more crowded 
than usual this time, as MCGREGOR faced SHADOWSPIRE's Duelmaster.  In SHADOWSPIRE, 
nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, 
MCGREGOR.  Word has it one team in SHADOWSPIRE is using psychics to predict wins.  
They lead a charmed life!   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Perhaps the warriors of MONSTER MANUAL should 
take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  Like a pup with its tail 
between its legs, DRAGONBANE GUILD scurried away from MONSTER MANUAL.  Oh, the shame! 
Take heed SHADOWSPIRE, of the unprincipled action of THE  SEAMSTRESS.  By challenging 
SON OF SEITAN, 17 points below her, THE SEAMSTRESS besmirches the noble art of 
dueling.  THE SEAMSTRESS killed SON OF SEITAN.  The whole thing leaves a bitter 
memory.  Place your bets!  DIRTY WHITE MOTHER is the long shot of the week:  they 
challenged GERON, up by 35.  Like a fly challenging a flyswatter, DIRTY WHITE MOTHER 
challenged GERON, and got squashed.  We sadists got a kick out it!  (as did DIRTY 
WHITE MOTHER)  
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  You've heard 
about SON OF SEITAN of OTTO'S DINER.  Death plays no favorites, and neither do I.  
What was a 12-11-2 doing on the fields in the first place?  I hear ULFORD of CLAN 
LONGBEARD tired of the battles and was thinking of becoming a priest.  29 PALMS of 
ABOMINATION saved him the effort of getting references.  Ask not a spymaster for 
counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious 
stupor.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  More important duties call me.  SHADOWSPIRE, I 
leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Swinging Aardvark.

Vilmar -- Even with your faves you still had no shot.  At least you paved the way for
a more worthy Duelmaster... -- Slim Chance

Osirus -- Next time you should focus on avoiding the point of my blade... -- Slim
Chance

DeGotti -- Fear not, now that the arena has a real Duelmaster again you're sure to
hear all sorts of chatter... -- Mordraith

Gladiatorial Commission -- Can you maybe match me up with someone closer to my
experience level?  Do I have to fight people with twice as many fights every time? --
Mr.Brain Smasher

Lime Rickey -- Mordraith says you may have sealed my fate.  One more loss and it's
time to fight by torchlight for me.  I hope you can live with yourself... -- Dr. Chud

Gnometradamus -- Regardless of your ranks, I want to tear you and your teammates to
ribbons.  I hate all of you. -- Bloody Jake

DeGotti -- You really bloodfeuded with a warrior(?) 15 fights Bloody Jake's senior?
How do you do that and still call yourself a man?  I can't believe you, coward! --
Crambus, manager of War Machine and Head Court Jester of the Allied Axis

Gods of Shadowspire -- For the love of everything holy, stop sending me these
pathetically hopeless rollups!!  Another round of those lugs will drive me to drink.
-- Crambus

     Good!  We have an investment in several taverns here. -- RUG#8437

Big Lake Outcasts -- So at first I thought, "wow, what a wussy, cowardly, gutless
challenge."  But then, I started to look at your team and warriors, checked into your
history a bit, and a wave of pity came over me.  I realized how terrible you are at
this, and how you most likely wouldn't get any wins at all if it weren't for
challenges like that, and I started to feel a bit better about things.  But then I
took it a step further, with it being the holidays and all--I just wanted you to know
to not worry; I am going to contact the other managers and organize some kind of
charity event for you, where everyone can throw one fight to you.  You know, like a
Christmas for the less fortunate?  So again, I would like to say 'thank you' for
turning my initial irritation into a golden opportunity for philanthropy and good
will during this holiday season, and opening my eyes to the real life problem that is
'awful managerialism' that affects you.  With the other managers helping, I really
think we can put an end to your affliction. -- Hombre

Ketos -- Wait, wait, wait... so you're saying I need to PARRY the attack before I can
riposte it?  Okay, now I get it, yep, totally makes more sense. -- Clod

Osirus -- Is that another, "Arrgghhh!" on your part?  I'm beginning to like that
matchup, after not having it go the right way before. -- McGregor

Allezles -- It is hard to get furious when you're standing there trying to figure out
pronunciation. -- Wreckless Fury

Poudreux -- It seems I have been meeting up with you Pentarchies a lot lately.  And a
good thing it has been for me.  Ever get the feeling that you've been getting lucky?
It is sort of an uncomfortable feeling. -- Blago Grunge

Apyko -- Hey, I gotta beat someone! -- Axel

Den -- Son, you need to check yourself and the crap you are sending down my way!
That's 2 large DCs you've sent me in the initiates and you've lost them both!  You're
warriors must feel totally embarrassed to be managed by someone so pathetic! --
DeGotti

With Beordin's graduation, that gives my stable 9 out of 10 styles here in
Shadowspire! -- DeGotti

Shamino -- Enjoy those skills, kid! -- Gnometradamus

Wicked All Redd -- Did you hear that?  My voice is soft but my sword talks BIG! --
Whisper
