                                    Daggers Deep

     With a heavy sigh, Kayelbe folded the parchment and slid it into the pocket of
his robe.  He turned his attention to the warriors in the courtyard.  Today, there
were just four present.  Raeg Trops and the golem Yruf were going over the latest
routine he had taught them.  Their dedication was paying off, as each of them carried
a record of four wins to but a single loss.  Even now as the daylight ebbed, they
were hard at work, both eager to apply their newly obtained skills.
     Across the courtyard the lovely Gwynneth was arguing again with Rawn.  Kayelbe
smiled at the spirit she showed, her blonde curls bouncing as she chastised the
hapless warrior.  Although her record didn't quite show it, Kayelbe knew that
Gwynneth was someone you wouldn't want to cross.
     "You are IMPOSSIBLE!" she shouted as she tossed her shortsword at the lunger's
feet.  Gwynneth stomped past the sparring gladiators and over to Kayelbe, who was
still watching from the doorway.
     "Boss, Rawn is...is....  He's just not cut out for this.  He'd rather spend his
time at the taverns than learning how to fight."  She leaned closer, casting a
sideways glance towards Rawn.  "I heard he's been throwing his fights.  I mean, three
out of four fights he didn't even raise his weapon!"
     Kayelbe rubbed the stubble on his chin.  Perhaps she was right.  He watched Rawn
attempting to balance his longsword in his palm like a carnival performer.  This kid
showed so much promise when he first came to Kayelbe's attention.  It was such a
shame, such a waste.  Gwynneth was right:  Rawn wasn't learning, wasn't putting any
effort into his training, and worst of all he wasn't winning.  Winning was important
right now.  Daggers Deep was falling in the rankings and Kayelbe knew that even Yruf
and Raeg were bound to start losing sooner rather than later.  He needed to act now
if he wanted to move Daggers Deep up in the standings.
     "Boss, are you listening to me?"  Apparently, Gwynneth had not finished her
rant.  "I said, why would you send Bander to the Dark Arena ahead of Rawn?  Ever
since he's gotten here he's been a royal pain.  Gods, you even sent...what was his
name?"
     "Harandyn," Kayelbe offered.
     "Right, Harandyn.  You sent him off to the torches his first fight, but Rawn
remains here.  Get rid of him already!"
     "Patience, young one."  Kayelbe looked into the young girl's eyes.  "Patience.
I have sent word to my associates, and they have assured me that promising young
warriors are indeed on their way to Shadowspire."  With that, the manager abruptly
turned on his heel and entered the barracks.
     As Gwynneth turned to the courtyard she noticed a sheet of parchment lying in
the doorway.  No doubt her harried patron had dropped it as he went inside.  Looking
about, she snatched up the paper and began to read:

Kayelbe--
     My apologies, my lord.  With so many stables recruiting for the new arena in
Telorinthe, we are hard pressed to find suitable replacements to send to you in
Shadowspire.
     I have received word that Harandyn did not meet your strict and just standards,
and I regret to inform you that his replacement is not much better.  Perhaps he can
act as a stop-gap and allow you to buy some time before our latest training efforts
are complete.
     I await further instruction.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

Greetings Shadowspire,
     I'm honored to be your 4th Duelmaster and first Slasher to hold the throne.  It
was nice being in the first title fight ever in Shadowspire even though it was in a
losing effort.  I'm glad to have the title that eluded me the first time around.
     My entry into the Codex is a challenge to Hombre, Pauly, Indimar and Nuln to
stand where I'm standing.  The memento I'm leaving in the throne room is an Elephant
Chia Pet.
     Sadler my challenge goes out to you.  Copernicus or Alberta if I'm still here
and either one of you are in striking distance, you'll be given a shot at the title.
Good luck to all this turn.

Your Duelmaster,

'69 Mustang Boss

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of SHADOWSPIRE!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team DRAGONBANE GUILD was 
unseated this week as KELLUMBO'S KIDS moved up from 7th ranking to take the top spot 
with a 5-0-0 record for the round.  I have begun to suspect trickery on the part of 
JUST CHILLIN.  How else weeks like this one's 4-1-0?  How else the sudden move to 
11th team?  The proverbial rising comet can only hope to compare with LA PENTARCHIE's 
team record!  A 5-0-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 14th place ranking.  I have 
begun to suspect trickery on the part of DAGGERS DEEP.  How else weeks like this 
one's 3-2-1?  How else the sudden move to 20th team?  DARQUE AGES bore the brunt of 
major assault on their standings this week as they dropped to 21st position as the 
result of going 1-4-0!  The proverbial rising comet can only hope to compare with DOC 
LEGRAND'S LAB's team record!  A 4-1-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 22nd place 
ranking.  I have begun to suspect trickery on the part of BLADESMEN.  How else weeks 
like this one's 3-2-0?  How else the sudden move to 25th team?  My tutors were fond 
of telling me that the higher you rise the harder you fall.  This week OF WOLF AND 
MAN went 1-4-0 and fell 11 notches into 29th!  CAROLINA BLUE bore the brunt of major 
assault on their standings this week as they dropped to 38th position as the result 
of going 1-3-0!  My tutors were fond of telling me that the higher you rise the 
harder you fall.  This week WAR MACHINE went 0-5-0 and fell 20 notches into 39th!  
Did only my eyes note the 4-1-0 record which CULT OF BACCHUS managed to post this 
round?  I don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  NATTY LIGHT caught 
the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested EMBEZZLING 
SCRIBE and was awarded 20 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable 
duels, LAB RAT put down DAGRDRAUG, causing him to lose 15 points of recognition in 
the process.  Who here was not present for the title fight this week as SADLER boldly 
challenged '69 MUSTANG BOSS in order to strive for the Duelmasters honors?  Although 
SADLER made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious 
'69 MUSTANG BOSS.  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this 
week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In SHADOWSPIRE "art" is a word that 
has long since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to 
beat in SHADOWSPIRE these days is LITERATE LOONS.  At least, most blades in town are 
looking to avoid them.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard 
pressed to find any of KELLUMBO'S KIDS last week.  Busy avoiding LITERATE LOONS?  
Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  JOAN OF ARC take 
warning!  You have more than a few enemies in SHADOWSPIRE.  As a gladiator gets 
older, the icy grip of fear lays hold of its heart.  True, BUD WISER?  Who could miss 
your "brave" challenge of WHLOTTA ROSIE?  All the city knows the duel went in favor 
of BUD WISER.  I shall not fail to spread the word in other cities of this "mighty" 
victory.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that 
YUKON JACK posted a challenge against the more highly recognized SNOW CONE.  The 
results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand YUKON JACK was bested by SNOW CONE.  Remember 
warriors, this is the discipline of steel.  I can not but mention with disdain the 
name of SANGLANT who this week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 11 points below 
in the rankings.  I thought SANGLANT showed great skill and promise when he subdued 
RAWN.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  The warrior's path is harsh.  For mediocrity there 
is but one reward--death.  This past week MYK, at 3-6-0, departed SHADOWSPIRE 
forever.  I must report the passing of KELLIGRRL, veteran of many duels.  1-8-0 final 
record Hers was not illustrious--but death plays no favorites.  Walk proud, warriors 
of DOC LEGRAND'S LAB!  By striking down ROUGE you have avenged the honor of your 
dead.  Your virtue is known to all in SHADOWSPIRE.  My hearty congratulations JULIUS 
PEPPERS, for thy revenge upon BARODAN, slayer of thy fallen comrade.  Next time he 
will know better, eh?  POWR GORESLINGER must hold silent, for this week he was 
humbled in the arena by a successful Bloodfeud won by SPONGE BATH of AARP.  Hail 
SPONGE BATH for thy victory!  My hearty congratulations HO! HA-HA! GUARD!, for thy 
revenge upon JUNKYARD DOGMA, slayer of thy fallen comrade.  Next time he will know 
better, eh?  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing is 
sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     The girls are as pretty in SHADOWSPIRE as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember:  a fool 
flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing only 
once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Strolling through the wonderful site Vindictus has made for us the spoiled ones, I
realize I'm leading the challenged rankings...my warriors got challenged 20 times!!
Wow, that's nice!  I'd like to retaliate in some way, but I feel depressed.  Am I
ugly?  Are my warriors ugly?  Why all this hate?  Let's try to give some reasons to
be hated. -- Le Pentarque

Le Pentarque -- Fair Play?  That's a subjective topic.  If it's in the rules, it's
all fair in my book.  Personally I don't DC but I will DC in a bloodfeud.  I will use
all 4 turns also, especially if I know I can get the win.  Some times warriors are
created with the specific intention of getting killed for the sake of using a
bloodfeud.  That probably means you really didn't like the two challenges I sent your
way again this turn.  Oh well. -- Var

BOING! -- That DC of yours worked out good for me.  I look forward to seeing more of
your teammates.  Hopefully I can plant some more in the ground. -- Junkyard Dogma

Copernicus -- How DARE you my portrait down from the Codex.  You tell Master Darque
that if I ever see you in a tournament, you're dead!!! -- Manager

Sadler -- I'll apologize for the shield, if you apologize for my jaw.  Well played.
-- Cheshire Rat

Y'all -- We done be a passin' on yer Beke Banner thang.  We be takin' a good snooze
whilst ya bea competin'. -- Smitty
P.S.  If that was a little difficult to interpret, The Life Impacts Team will be
dormant (sitting out) the time (11-20?) during The Special Banner Competition. --
The Consortium Elders

Congrats to 69 Mustang Boss!  Duelmaster! -- The Life Impacts Publicity Agent

Nomad -- Back atcha, Boy!  We done dropped a mite, now, didn't we? -- Smitty

Den -- Ya coot, tambereenie?  Mah fiddle be purdy daggone good.  Yep.  Watchoo play,
boy?  That thar flute? -- Smitty

Chaucer -- You should have brought the whole crew along when you challenged me.
Perhaps they would have helped--especially the Knight? -- C.H.S.
P.S.  Goooooooo Bulldogs!

Goloswin -- I was on, I think! Nice fight. -- Cantex

Djaimz -- After I warmed you up, I pulled you through the barrel.  Didn't hurt, did
it? -- Extrusion

Turn-Parry-Dodge -- You need to learn some manners!  Humpf! -- Mrs. Vaughn

Snow Cone -- One of my favorites!  But not after that fight, you Cad! -- Grandma
Miller

Hey, Y'all, where'd all them there talkin' ago?  Gotta write them personals, y'know?
-- Smitty

Djohey Djr.?  But I've already seen this one.  Oh well, a win is a win. -- Yruf

Zippo -- That was quite a "match". -- Raeg Trops, aspiring punster

Fountain--
     While fighting out on the sands
     Fountain's mother cried out from the stands,
        "Son I hate to admit
        That you fight like a twit
     But parental honesty demands."
--e.e. cummings

Nael Ghun -- You should be thanking me.  All the popularity, tons of skills, the
ladies, the publicity, the bright lights!  And what have I got to show for it?
Nothing but a couple of lousy wins. -- Edward Gorey

Sache -- Why do I keep hearing the sound of Rupaul in my head?  Make it stop!
Perhaps one too many blows to the ole noggin. -- Chesterton

Player Committee -- Well, my turn didn't arrive last night and with me moving into a
new house this weekend, there's no way I'll be able to get strats in for Turn 9, so
I'm out this turn. -- Drake

     As you know, Smitty and Life Impacts will not be competing in the special Banner
Contest in Shadowspire.  Smitty has already announced on line that he will go dormant
during this new competition.  There is confusion from Doc's posts last round as to
whether the competition starts round 11 or Round 10.  In order to avoid any
complications, Life Impacts will not be available for competition in Shadowspire
after Round 9.  We wish everyone "good luck" in The Competition and in Shadowspire.
-- The Consortium Elders

L'Heritier -- Does that name mean anything anyone else would understand?  For now I
won't worry about the name, the win was enough. -- Baron Stonewall

Plaguenog -- Well, it seemed like a good idea at the time.  If I were Cedric Ironfist
I'd be getting witty comments from my teammates right about now.  Don't be surprised
if we try that again sometime. -- Hardrada

Epictetus -- Ahhh, a nice little plan I came up with while sitting around the cave
contemplating. -- Gron

Daisy Chains -- I haven't had many random match-ups.  I'd be happy to take more like
that one. -- Aldebaran

Alema D'Rav -- Close, but not quite enough yet.  Kekoral will be well defended one
day. -- Anvil Ironfist

Committee Members -- This is to officially announce that I may miss turn#10 due to
House Repairs that forced me to be living at a friend's place for a week and a half.
It all depends on when the repairs get completed if I will be able to make the turn
since all my DM related stuff is boxed up in storage at the moment. -- DeGotti

Crambus -- Well, that's one way to avoid the BF!  Looks like I might have to take it
out on the other members of you team! -- DeGotti

20 April 2007
All -- I've been...out of circulation for the last couple of months, and my lists
are not up to date.  If you've announced a manager name, a new alliance, or changed
a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via
diplo, or in an e-mail (Sue (at) solberg-mathews (dot) com).  For that matter, if
you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The
Saint, keeper of lists
