                             Notes from the arena champ.

Shadowspire -- I'll keep this short and sweet.  Despite the fact that obtaining the
throne is traditionally a time of celebration, the Warmasters instead are mourning
the loss of Nero.  As a result, Vanek has placed the responsibility of vengeance upon
my shoulders.  It is with much anticipation that I prepare to face Gargantia in not
only a bloodfeud, but defense of the throne.  It will be my great pleasure to
separate his head from his shoulders and leave it as a souvenir here in the throne
room next turn.  After all, that is the Warmaster philosophy... we don't get mad, we
get even.

     Your Duelmaster,
          Thelonius

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out SHADOWSPIRE to 
see what's new.  NBA LEGENDS like really fought hard to move up to 8th from 14th.  
Way to go!  One team deserves special mention 'cause they moved up 1 after going 
4-1-0.  Keep it up, DRAGONBANE GUILD!  MVP award for AGRIPPA?  WARMASTERS' proud of 
him after beating DIRTY WHITE MOTHER and getting 22 points.  Talk about yer major 
upsets!  DIRTY WHITE MOTHER's match with AGRIPPA cost him a loss of 19 points!  The 
Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause he's Number One!  GARGANTIA knows this.  
She was Bloodfeuded by the Duelmaster.  This Duelmaster is like something else!  
THELONIUS stopped GARGANTIA dead in hers tracks!  I hear the top team insists all 
their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  MONSTER 
MANUAL was the most avoided team.  Is a 354-435-14 record really that scary?  Is 
there some deep dark secret why LA PENTARCHIE's been avoiding MONSTER MANUAL so much? 
Or is it just that they're too scared?  Like, is ASTRI popular, or what?  She was 
challenged the most in all of SHADOWSPIRE!  She's got a 8-6-0, is that good?  I'm not 
so sure DIRE PATIENCE knew all the facts when he challenged HADRIAN of WARMASTERS.  I 
saw DIRE PATIENCE stumbling and dribbling at The Dripping Blade last week...  DIRE 
PATIENCE lost to HADRIAN, but he got 10 points.  HADRIAN won, and got 7 points.  I 
don't get it.  DAVE LEBEIS is being unfair.  It's challenged down 23 against BLUE 
DRAGON.  I don't know why they let this stuff go on.  (I'd better shut up) DAVE 
LEBEIS beat BLUE DRAGON.  No surprise about that.  Really I'm not surprised DAVE 
LEBEIS would do such a scummy thing, either.  People were asking me did SMOOTH 
HOPERATOR REALLY challenge WHISPER?  (all right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded 
good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but WHISPER wants me to write 
about it since she beat SMOOTH HOPERATOR.  Satisfied?  LOSER DEGOTTI must not be a 
good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  It challenged ZATHOG.  11 is a big 
difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I thought LOSER DEGOTTI showed great 
skill and promise when it subdued ZATHOG.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big 
deal!   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  It was kind of sad, seeing old DIRE 
PATIENCE stumbling around the arena, before HADRIAN finished him off.  Oh well!  I 
see DIRE PATIENCE got killed by HADRIAN of WARMASTERS.  Now I want to see some 
serious Bloodfeud action out there!  THELONIUS bloodfeuded (is that a word?) 
GARGANTIA for revenge over some guy's bad fortune.  Was it really worth it?  ROCKFORD 
really fought hard against SAILOR JEFFRY.  That'll teach INEBRIATION not to go and 
kill any of THE COMMODORES' guys again, huh!  What if they had a fight and nobody 
showed up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  SHADOWSPIRE is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Degotti -- I'm very aware of the recent Direct TV commercials, I do not live in a
cave.  Rob Lowe should never be in front of camera again, he repulses me, as do the
rest of you and his followers.  HAL needs to eat too, as long as he stays out of my
fridge. -- Crambus

Mordraith -- That's it, keep your mouth shut.  Nobody here likes you and you suck at
everything you do, freak. -- Crambus

DeGotti -- Yeah, we are not men of simple minds, like your entire peer group, so yes,
the lame spotlight was understood.  But, what I find curious is that you don't
understand R Lowe is likely a pedophile having filmed underage girls.  Highlighting
him in a spotlight proves poor choice for any normal man, but we would not expect
normalcy from groups such as you.  The Allied Axis being men of honor and morality
like to find humor in most everything other than celebrating children being
advantaged.  This is why crowds of people come to the AA and ask for our help and
enlightenment, for we are pretty awesome, and such as you, pretty much not. -- Den

Mordraith -- There are times when I sit and think, "hey, maybe that Mordraith is not
such a bad guy, maybe he does know something about managing a team," and then I see
you sitting in the stands eating another pudding pie and I am completely sickened,
for you are disgusting and cannot field a team worthy of my respect.  Stand alone
loser, for your intelligence is a non-existent. -- Den

Crambus -- I look forward to your rookies showing their skill.  And, I expect a kill
very shortly. -- Den

Filthy Phil -- Good luck in the tourney. -- Den

Otis the Spunk Lover -- Are you done playing here in my arena? -- Den

Caligula -- Given our differences in points and rank, I would have thought you were
better.  How did you manage to live so long, I wonder?  (Oh, challenging down 20+
pts!  I guess that works...) -- Monoceros

Vanek -- Too bad about Nero.  I wasn't trying to kill him, just get the point across
that I don't appreciate the numerous cheesy challenges you send down my way.  I don't
much care how you justify these challenges; they're within the rules and ultimately
that's all the justification you need.  Still, I consider them churlish and
unsportsmanlike--and I don't do it.  Given our current fighter rankings and your
hobby of looking for a lopsided match-up, I'm going to be taking the short end of the
stick for a while.  But, you don't have to worry too much when it's my guys ranked
far above yours (and sooner or later it's going to end up that way).  I'm better than
you. -- Kid Arcane

Dave Lebeis -- This was a good match; I think it could have gone either way.  You
broke my shortsword; I didn't think it COULD be broken!  And you bruised up my arm!!
That hurt!! On the other hand, it made punching your face feel that much better! --
Astri

Convicted Thief -- That was a sweet win for me.  Tough to fight with a cruicifix tied
to your back, am I right?  Well, it was Easter.  What did you expect? -- Dull Impact

Kareem -- We're going to have to try that again.  Soon. -- Comet Collision

Den -- HEY!  There most certainly is a "Men's Room" at Otto's!  No toilets or running
water... but that's between Otto and Shadowspire's health inspectors.  Who are we to
judge? -- Kid Arcane

DeGotti -- If that Tremendous-Damage-doing PS could win more often against more
managers, he'd still be around.  He was hosed in Parry, Attack, and Decise.  Lots of
skills in those three areas, but no experts.  However, if I get the chance to make
another big PS (but smarter this time) I think I might have to give it a shot.  The
winning fights were fun to read. -- Kid Arcane

Lishcka -- Nice try sucka!  I hope you enjoyed my "Great Escape" routine!  You might
want to try and learn from it! -- Ringo D.

Smushi -- Hope you enjoyed your target practice there! -- DeGotti 

Dicky Tourville -- THAT is how you perform a down challenge! -- Gnometradamus

NBA Legends -- Welcome to Shadowspire! -- DeGotti

Shadowspire -- I hear that the best of the best fight here.  We look forward to
seeing if we are up to the challenge. -- NBA Legends

Zathog -- I felt like I was looking into a mirror.  That fight was as close as they
come.  Looking forward to a rematch some time. -- Larry Bird

Ill Wind -- Not my best effort.  I was a little unprepared.  We will meet again. --
Doctor J

Kid Arcane -- Quit poking the bear and then acting surprised when he gets upset and
lashes out at you.  This crying on the forums is a bit beneath you. -- Vanek, Manager
of Warmasters

Crambus -- Wow, you and your 38.2% win/loss record do truly inspire fear.  Acting
tough on the forums and acting tough on the arena sands are two different things.
Keep spouting off on the forums and putting your nose where it doesn't belong and you
just might make my hit list too.  Then, much like Kid Arcane, you'll have something
to whine about too. -- Vanek

NBA Legends -- Now that I have gotten that unpleasantness out of the way in the two
posts before this one, let me switch gears and say welcome to Shadowspire.  We are
glad to have you on board! -- Vanek

                   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!
