                                      SPY REPORT

     Good afternoon, duel fans!  It is me once again, Huard DePriest, spy reporter 
extraordinaire, here to share all the facts that are worth knowing in Shadowspire.  
Welcome once again to the sands of Alastari's premiere no-tournament arena.  You are 
in for a treat!  So without further adieu, let's get to the right into the action of 
turn 244! 
     In a show of Shadowspire's greatness, our Duelmaster was the most challenged 
warrior for the turn.  Mordecai Mouse was not one to sit idly by, though, as others 
had all the fun!  He issued his own challenge to Lyon Bear of The Commodores.  
Mordecai Mouse keeps his title and gets the opportunity to face another set of 
challenges from the feisty Challenger Champions next cycle.  Mordecai Mouse also takes 
home the Recognition and Popularity Leader awards for a nice turn.  Congrats to Grimm, 
Mordecai Mouse, and the Furry Fury guild. 
     Cult of Bacchus is the most avoided team and Warmasters avoided them the most.  
As mentioned already, our Duelmaster stands as the most challenged warrior.  Warriors 
are hungry for greatness in Shadowspire.  This is the sign of a competitive arena!  
Some Kinda Hate takes over the top team spot from Warmasters, who fell 8 places, which 
is the biggest drop for the turn.  Big Lake Outcasts and Dragonbane Guild enter the 
top 5, while The Commodores, along with the aforementioned Warmasters, moved out to 
make room for them.  The largest leap forward for turn 244 belongs to Darque Ages, who 
moved from 13th to 8th.
     All the deaths for this turn took place in the Dark Arena.  Many of those were 
raw recruits that apparently did not meet their manager's standards even before their 
first fight.  A few others had some fights under their belts, but lackluster 
performances led them to a night fight!  Morana from Pray the Gods leaves us at 4-7-0, 
while Papadeaux got to go head-to-head with Dark Champion after failing to secure a 
win in Shadowspire.  He dies at 0-5-0.  A few blood feuds ended this turn with no 
vengeance enacted.  Are these the signs of a kinder, gentler Shadowspire?  By the 
gods, I hope not!  Care to explain, Keyoke and Nomad?  Are you going soft on us?
     I am going to call that a wrap, duel fans!  I hope you have enjoyed your time in 
Shadowspire.  Join us next week for more sword on shield action.  You won't want to 
miss it.  I look forward to seeing if Mordecai Mouse can keep his firm grip upon the 
throne or will all that glory slip through his fingers?  Join us next week to find 
out!  Signing off...
