                                      SPY REPORT

     Good afternoon, duel fans!  It is a rainy day here in Shadowspire with the 
occasional lightning flash.  Gladiators have been warned not to raise their weapons 
too high during a duel or in celebration after a win.  Nothing stops the game from 
going forward.  There has been talk of employing weather wizards to control the 
forecast on fight days, but I think that is a horrible idea!  The elements add a new 
dimension to the games.  Enough talking about the weather, onto the games! 
     Misfortune Cookie took the throne last turn and today was the first opportunity 
he had to defend it.  There were no challenges for the throne, at least none that made 
it through to the Duelmaster.  The Duelmaster himself also did not issue any 
challenges, at least none that were accepted.  So, we find ourselves with a random 
match up for the Title fight!  Powder Monkey of Shanghaied got the call to face 
Misfortune Cookie on the sands.  He made the best of his opportunity too and beat 
Misfortune Cookie in a 1 minute bout.  Congrats to our new Duelmaster, Powder Monkey, 
who is managed by Blackhart. 
     The most avoided team for the turn was Big Lake Solution.  They were most avoided 
by Kill Em All.  The most challenged warrior for the turn M'Lord from the Cult of 
Bacchus squad.  He was challenged by the higher ranked and more experienced Chicken 
Hawk of Kill Em All. Chicken Hawk seems a fitting name under the circumstances.  In a 
fight that did not surprise or entertain anyone in the arena, Chicken Hawk defeated 
M'Lord in a 2 minute fight. 
     Wicked Martyrs remains the top team with a 9-6-0 record.  Along with Shanghaied 
at 4th, Wicked Martyrs were the only teams to remain in the top 5 from last turn.  
Kill Em All moved up from 8th to 2nd with a 4-1-0 turn.  Pray the Gods had an 
impressive gain jumping to 3rd from 12th.  Otto's Diner moved up 1 spot to 5th to 
round out the top 5.  The biggest gain of the turn belongs to the aforementioned Pray 
the Gods with a 9 spot gain.  The biggest loss goes to Monster Manual, who fell down 5 
spots to 8th. 
     There are only 2 deaths to report for the turn.  One was a first turn Dark Arena 
death, which rarely draws any attention.  This one was no different.  The other death 
happened in the Challenger Champions, so it gets a bit more space in our report.  
Clara D'Anduza of Darque Ages challenged Slaycia of Cult of Bacchus.  Hindsight is 
20/20 and no doubt Clara would want to take this challenge back!  Slaycia killed Clara 
in a short 1 minute fight.  It wasn't even close from all the reports! 
     It is time for me to be off!  I'm sure Huard and his arrogant self will be here 
next turn as I travel to the Tournament of the Dead. None of the other SYP reporters 
are brave enough to venture to an arena filled with the walking dead and death magic 
all around.  I'm not a fan of it myself, but the news must be reported!  I am sure I 
will see you in a few cycles!  Come back next turn to see if Powder Monkey can hold on 
to the throne or if any team is going to be able to topple Wicked Martyrs from the Top 
Team spot.

Martial Slaw -- Whoa, I thought the sign said:  All You Can Eat.  I didn't even know 
someone could wield tongs that way! -- Chicken Hawk

The following ad should have printed two turns ago. -- Den

Vlad -- Well, look at you using that Word of the Day calendar your drunk uncle gave to 
you as a "hush present", and using a big word like "proclivities" correctly even.  We 
won't take the time to dissect your Freudian predilections as you focus a lot of 
banter on the posterior and farm animals.  Don't worry about how long it takes to 
tally up challenge data.  You see, little fella, I have people that take care of that 
for me.  You do know what "people" are right?  You see, "people" are what someone like 
me have to perform menial tasks.  As a "people" yourself, this may be brand new 
knowledge for you.  Thank God we have people like you though, it keeps those of us 
with ideas and intelligence free to accomplish bigger and better achievements.  So, 
you and your fellow back-patters have labeled me a down-challenger.  You lecturing me 
on down-challenging is like ANTIFA fighting against fascism.  At least I manage my 
teams within the rules of the arena, which no matter how often you attempt to ignore 
the facts, you cannot do.  You see, princess, you are garbage, and I am someone that 
has no problem recognizing garbage and being careful where I step.  And little fella, 
only an idiot like yourself would believe that the recognition point system is a basis 
to judge all challenges from.  That is almost as stupid as your bargain haircut.  In 
fact, you defending the recognition point system puts you amongst the other great 
minds of Alastari; like Consortium, Dorkio, Lady Mordraith, and Womanta.  You keep 
good company, insignificant one.  Tell you what, my simple little boy, I'll stop down 
challenging in your precious recognition point system when you show a modicum of 
integrity.  Guessing I will never have to worry about, for you are as I outlined 
earlier, human garbage. -- Den

The following ads should be printed exactly where they are. -- Den

Vlad -- I know everything I need to know about you.  You are a piece of garbage with 
not a smidgen of integrity, and I prefer to keep the company of those with integrity, 
therefore I could really care less about you, your antics, or your disregard for the 
other managers of this fine arena.  And honestly, I don't really care if you even were 
able to get out of bed in the morning.  Maybe someone tells you they care, but trust 
me, nobody gives a crap about losers like you.  Stay in bed, nobody cares.  The arena 
would throw you out if you had done that to anyone but me, so I guess you know how to 
use people, it has obviously been the only way you are where you are now. Loser.  You 
know what, fight however many warriors you want each turn, nobody cares, don't fight 
any, nobody cares, invest your time in your hero Harvey Weinstein's defense, nobody 
cares.  Take a knee, nobody cares.  Drink anti-freeze, nobody cares. -- Den, I'm the 
guy that doesn't care

Degotti -- I guess you don't practice the concept that some things are better 
unspoken.  You sass-off about my expected top ranking and I go 1-4 as a result.  Some 
things are better left unsaid, like what a pathetic little pile of nothing Vlad is. --
