     After their fights, Owsly, Spin, Perilous, Sinister, and Shamrock are sitting
around the table in Owsly's office, sharing a pint of the finest ale Larnie could
     "Nae be o bad turn lads and lassy.  Sinister, it be aboot time ye stomped that
Snowflake.  Me was like this last fight.  Work on that!"  Owsly scowls at her under
bushy eyebrows.  She looks down at her tankard, not wanting to meet his penetrating
     "Spin and Shamrock, good fights, lads.  Ye lost but ye pull in one helluva fight
ye did!  Spin, ye be improvin daily and it be showin in yer fightin, but me need ta
pull ye out for o turn or two.  But me want ye ta be workin just as hard so when me
send ye back in ye be ready.  Understand?"
     Spin wipes ale from his chin before answering.  "Aye, Owsly, me understand.  Me
would like ta get s'more practice in before meetin on the sands again."  Owsly nods
     "Shamrock, lad, you should have hung in there o' bit more.  Me think ye coulda
taken Sumire.  Ye got ta toughen up a wee bit!  Yer too soft!  Stop bein o sissy!
There be no sissies in the clan, ye hear?!"
     "Yessir!  I'll do me best, sir!" Shamrock says somewhat cheerfully.
     Owsly frowns but doesn't say anything, instead downing the last drops in his mug
and going over to the keg for a refill.
     When he returns to the table, everyone seems to be quiet and not really saying
anything.  After a few minutes of unbearable silence, Perilous clears her throat.
     "Sir," she says somewhat softly to get Owsly's attention.  Owsly looks up from
his mug.  "The lads and me have been talkin and we think you shouldnae have sent
Cairraig ta the Dark Arena.  He be a team veteran and he works harder than any o' us.
It just not be right and he dunnae even know what it be.  He just went cause ye sent
him there!"
     Owsly looks around the table meeting each gaze eye to eye.  Each was clearly NOT
happy with him.
     "Lassy, there be o' reason Cairraig's name means 'dumb rock.'  It be because he
     "No, it be 'cause his parents were mean!" she spouts back.
     "Arena fightin be o' tough business and ye got ta learn if ye expect ta be makin
it.  Cairraig dannae be learnin.  Sure he be trainin hard but that danne always be
     "But ye sent him ta the Dark Arena!  Ye should have just sent him home or let
him retire with o small pension or... or something!"  Perilous yells.  "Me doubt he
even knows he went ta his doom!"
     "Ye know me cannae do that!"  Owsly bellows back.  "The rules state only five
fighters ta o team other than graduates!  Me cannae just have a four man team till
the end o' time!  He had to go!  It danne be my fault he danne understand the fine
print!"  Owsly's eyes scan the rest of the team as the table grows silent again.
Perilous just glares at him with her arms folded beneath her breasts, Sinister eyes
Owsly with a look of daggers that says he might just live up to the first half of his
name, Spin looks as though he might break the glass in his hand in front of him, and
Shamrock looks as though he could just leave.
     A loud knock interrupts the entire argument.  A puzzled look crosses Owsly's
face.  "Who the hell be knockin on me door at this hour?  Surely those idiots at the
Commission have not sent the replacement already?!"  He slides his seat back and
walks the dozen steps over to the door, takes a look back at the team as he grasps
the door handle.  They all look on expectantly, waiting for him to open it.  He takes
a deep breath and yanks open the door.
     "Me back, Owsly," Cairraig says with a sheepish grin, his squat frame nearly
taking up the whole door frame.  "Nasty place be that Dark Arena.  Me not sure why
you had me fight there but they be none too friendly.  Glad me be ta be home,"
Owsly's jaw drops open and the room is so quiet you could hear a pin drop.
     "Cccccairrrrraig," Owsly stammers, "what are you doing here?"
     "He's here for his after fight ale, you lummox," Perilous says, elbowing Owsly
out of the way and taking Cairraig by the arm.  She leads him over to his spot at the
table where Spin pulls out a chair for him.  Cairraig seats himself at the table
while Sinister pours him a pint.  Owsly just watches, mouth hanging open, door knob
still in hand and completely silent with awe.
     "You okay, boss?" Cairraig asks.  "You look like you seen o ghost."  Laughter
erupts from the table.  With a frown Owsly shuts the door and walks back over to his
     "So tell us what happened," Perilous says with a mischievous look at Owsly.
     "Well, uh, the arena be dark, with only torches on the walls all the way around.
Made it very hard to fight," Cairraig says with a frown.  "The people, they be mean
and nasty, throwin stuff at me and some guy named Dark Champion."
     Perilous shoots Owsly a nasty look.  "Go on," she insists.
     "Well, me told the other guy we should just duel and get out of there, but he
just gave me this mean look and tried to stab me with a longspear before the fight
even started.  He was not fighting by the rules," Cairraig shakes his head.  "Me
looked at the Arenamaster, but he dinnae do anything," Cairriag shrugged his
     "So what happened?" Perilous persisted, all the while giving Owsly a look of
pure hatred.
     "Well, he tried to stab me again and again, and me kept blocking him.  Then he
say something about me wearin me daddy's armor.  That made me angry!  So me did what
Owsly always told me to do."
     "And what was that?" Perilous probed.
     "Me put on me mean face.  Me felt mean, too, and me hit him with me shield over
and over until he dinnae move.  They carried him off on o stretcher.  He dannae look
so good either," Cairraig shrugs his big shoulders again and takes a draught from his
     "Good for you, Cairraig.  I'm proud of you."  Perilous eyes Owsly yet again.
Owsly just rolls his eyes at her.
     "You nice, Perilous.  Me like you," Cairraig says, clapping Perilous on the back
and nearly knocking her from her seat.  "You always say nice things to Cairraig."
     "Me like you too, Cairraig," Perilous says with a friendly smile.
     "Well, thanks for me ale.  Me tired and still have trainin ta do before bed.  It
be a long day today," Cairraig says, getting up from the table.
     "Get some rest, Cairraig," Perilous says to him.  "You have definitely earned
it."  Cairraig gets up from the table and leaves Owsly's office, shutting the door
behind him.  After he's good and gone, Perilous pipes up.
     "You send that man back to the Dark Arena, Owsly, and me will not fight another
     "Me either," Spin says, stepping up beside Perilous.
     "Nor me," Sinister says with a piercing look.
     "We are o' team.  Cairraig should stay," Shamrock says hesitantly.
     "And me will cut your funding, you lout, no matter how much of an arse beatin ye
give me!"  Owsly spins to face the door, where the voice came from.  Larnie was
standing in the doorway to the office, his arms akimbo.  "The man has earned his
right!  Those were Da's rules."
     Owsly's shoulders visibly slump.  "Alright.  O' team is o' team and ye all stood
against me and that be sayin somethin.  Me will give him o' wee bit longer ta prove
his worth, but somethin has ta change!"  The team erupts into cheers and claps,
patting each other on the back and thanking one another.
     "Yay, yay, yay!  Celebration is over.  Drink yer ales and get the hell outta me
office and get ta bed.  Trainin be startin extra early in the morn!"  They groan as a
team and head out of the office, all except Larnie, who remains behind.
     When they are all gone, Larnie speaks up.  "Ye did the right thing there,
Owsly," he says, walking over to pour himself a pint.  "They have bonded together as
a team, which makes them better overall, though it dannae may seem like it now."
     "Aye, me hope so.  Between Perilous, Sinister, and Cairraig, our record be goin
ta the bottom o' the oothouse."
     "Maybe so, but you job be ta turn them inta fighters," Larnie points out.
     "Thanks fer the pep talk.  Now get your arse oot of me office afore me take ye
up on that arse beatin ye were talkin aboot!"  Larnie laughs and leaves as well.
     Owsly plops down in his chair behind his desk to finish off his ale and think.

     Thanks, Deadmaus, for the great fight.  The best thing is I got my invite!  I am

there and some other new invite from Zukal.  I hope to say this is an incredible
feeling.  Goodbye, Lapur!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt LAPUR will ever be the same.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for 
there are sorrows to drown for ARCANE PHARMACY, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 
5 into 9th.  BOHICA stable has parlayed this turn's 1-0-0 into a 5 space move up the 
rankings.  This brings them up to 5th place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, 
SINISTER FINN fought SNOWFLAKE and gained 11 points and contributed to CLAN CROW's 
2-2-0.  BUZZARD has lost to CAIRRAIG AMADAN, falling 7 points, while helping make THE 
TAKEN a 2-3-0 turn.  DEADMAU5 challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting 
to dethrone THE TAKEN's warrior.  And all eyes were on DEADMAU5 this turn as it 
ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  LAPUR has a new victor!  Can someone confirm a 
rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Warty 
Toad until they win.  Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  TREKKERS has cause to stand tall, as 
they were LAPUR's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  
And avoiding TREKKERS more than any other team we find CLAN CROW.  LAPUR, are we 
going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged warrior this 
turn was THE TAKEN's warrior RAVAGE.  More fighters challenged her than challenged 
the Duelmaster!  In a brave attempt, PERILOUS QUINN from CLAN CROW challenged up 20 
points to fight RAVAGE from the THE TAKEN stable.  PERILOUS QUINN perhaps got hers 
just desserts, seeing as she was beat by RAVAGE and ended up with 29 recognition 
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Congratulations go out to SHADOWMIST, with SERENA revenging a bloodfeud 
against ENIGMA of THE TAKEN.  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves 
of their enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in LAPUR again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
