                             Notes from the arena champ.

That's right little slasher.  You can buck the odds from time to time, but we all
know what the outcome is destined to be.  Thank you very much, I'll be taking these
teeth out of this silly chest, and am depositing your skull in their place.  Looks
like I have a contribution here after all.

Looks like an interesting turn coming up.  The two warriors below me have, at least
on paper, a good match-up.  I'll be challenging the striker, and avoiding the other
two, so we'll see what happens.

Until next we meet, I am Chakhari, and I am your tourney worthy Duelmaster.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for SHADOWSPIRE.  Too bad, KELLUMBO'S KIDS, 
but AMERICAN MUSCLE was just too good to be stopped.  CHILDHOOD HEROES had like a 
really albendranius week!  Those hunks got a 3-2-0 and wound up as 9th team!  I 
couldn't believe it.  Did BATTLE GRUNTS really go up by 13?  If only those guys 
didn't have so may missing teeth...  Gross!  Wanna hear about a real loser?  Listen 
to this--THE MONGOLOIDS II got 1-4-0 and dropped 11.  Didn't see much of them after 
the fights!  Really, just how far can one team drop in one round?  ERRATA dropped 17, 
which I think's more than all the other teams combined!  CULT OF BACCHUS had like a 
really albendranius week!  Those hunks got a 3-1-0 and wound up as 31st team!  One 
team deserves special mention 'cause they moved up 6 after going 3-0-0.  Keep it up, 
HUCKLE'S CATS!  Like RED IRON KNIGHTS' SAUCERHEAD THARPE is sweating since he got 
challenged by Duelmaster CHAKHARI!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  CHAKHARI 
stopped SAUCERHEAD THARPE dead in his tracks!  I hear the top team insists all their 
warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  KELLUMBO'S KIDS was SHADOWSPIRE's most avoided team.  Is there some 
award for that?  Is there some deep dark secret why BIG LAKE OUTCASTS' been avoiding 
KELLUMBO'S KIDS so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Can RODENT CLAN's 
CHESHIRE RAT be more popular than me?  She was challenged the most, but is that 
really the same?  Some fights are really unfair.  How do you think FLOR feels about 
being challenged by '70 SUPERBIRD, 22 points above her?  Is this how AMERICAN MUSCLE 
advances, by having their members ('70 SUPERBIRD) fight people that are really below 
them (FLOR)?  See if I ever talk to GRANITE again!  PERFECT 10 HAMMER was so low when 
He challenged he.  Hhmph!  I was sorry to see such an unfair "fight" in SHADOWSPIRE.  
GRANITE got 2 points after beating PERFECT 10 HAMMER, 23 points below him.  POWR 
GORESLINGER is being unfair.  He's challenged down 31 against TEMPTRESS HAMMER.  I 
don't know why they let this stuff go on.  (I'd better shut up) POWR GORESLINGER beat 
TEMPTRESS HAMMER.  No surprise about that.  Really I'm not surprised POWR GORESLINGER 
would do such a scummy thing, either.  People were asking me did MOUSE OF PAIN REALLY 
challenge CELEGDRAUG?  (all right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't 
a spectacular fight, or anything, but CELEGDRAUG wants me to write about it since she 
lost to MOUSE OF PAIN.  Satisfied?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  LYCANTHROPIC LYNX really fought hard against LUCIUS.  That'll teach 
WARMASTERS not to go and kill any of DOC LEGRAND'S LAB's guys again, huh!  Like was 
that some Bloodfeud, or what?  (RUPERT IRONFIST vs. DJAIMZ, that is.) Hey you guys, 
don't you think your families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone 
write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  I had 
a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

The Heir can rest in peace! -- Import-Export

It is getting ugly at the top.... -- Le Pentarque

I forgot to send Das de Bol where he belongs...should be done this turn.... -- Le
Pentarque

'76 Gran Torino -- Hrmph, I wish I had been a bit more active there, I might have
been able to do something before you finished me.  Perhaps next time. -- Dagrdraug

J.G. Ballard -- Well that fight was a toss up that came down to who won the clash.
Fortunately it was me. -- Celegdraug

Daisy Chains -- That was a fortunate match up for our lazy team.  To think we did not
even have to bother bloodfeuding you to get "revenge". -- Angrendraug

Lucius -- I am amazed I won.  It seems I have been fighting with an incorrect
strategy for several turns now and my manager never bothered to change it, even after
I noticed it last turn.  Further proof of the old adage, it is better to be lucky
than good. -- Bregdraug

Powder Hound -- You should learn to relax and take it easy. -- Sarndraug

All -- Sorry about the lazy inattentiveness I have exhibited here of late.  I am
going to try and be more active and vocal.  Of course that means my recent rise up
the ranks will come to a halt as I seem to do better when I do not pay attention. --
Rillion

Chakhari -- Congratulations on your bloody ascension to the throne. -- Rillion

Nomad -- My condolences on your bloody loss of the throne and your warrior. --
Rillion

DeGotti -- Your blind challenges sound like how I do when I know who I am
challenging! -- Rillion

Borne -- Yeah, I enjoyed a few days off my feet.  I will have to challenge you
sometime after my manager changes my strategy to something that is appropriate for my
style rather than whatever "basher" strategy I somehow ended up using by mistake FOR
MULTIPLE TURNS! -- Bregdraug

Geessh, forgot to send in turns for a couple turns and you never hear the end of it.
-- Rillion

Speaking of that, why I am still training a stat that is already 21? -- Sarndraug

I hate my team, bunch of ingrates. -- Rillion

Player Committee -- Hola!  I am out of the country until the 15th of July so I will
be missing the next turn! -- DeGotti

Nomad -- After such a rousing speech by your former Duelmaster, I had much higher
expectations.  Wow, you really failed miserably, getting killed on the throne is a
rare accomplishment, and you the first to obtain here in the fine city of
Shadowspire.  This is one record you will hold eternally. -- Den

Detective Kellumbo -- Well pudding head, by the time I read this I will know if my
challenge went through or not, if it did, you will have suffered yet another loss and
I will hold the title.  It would seem that your vast investigative talents are used
to ferret out storage houses of plate armor.  If Chakhari is your only example of
what you are able to accomplish without 3" of plate hanging from limbs, you are in
for quite a show.  You came out of the gate like a lion, but my young apprentice you
shall leave like a lamb. -- Den

Rupert Ironfist -- I don't make the challenges, Den makes them for me.  So, don't
hate the messenger, he evidently wanted me to get my confidence back, mission
accomplished. -- Powr Goreslinger

69 Mustang Boss -- Idiot. -- Burm Wolfsnarl

Felix -- That is twice in a row to your pesky style.  However; my misshapen friend
this time I understand what I did wrong, and will now begin my meteoric rise to the
top unmolested by dolts like yourself. -- Harm Heelhacker

Mouse of Pain -- I hope they had oxygen waiting for you after the fight.  You don't
smoke do you? -- Blair Hammertoe

Lord Xiang -- I feel nobody could offer a comparable unbiased approach to
spyreporting as myself.  For you see, simple little man, I abhor each of you equally.
You are all garbage to me, the blind leading the blind, the simple explaining simple
things, and the lost shouts of ignorance into a fading dream. -- Den

Slade -- Three warriors killed on turn 10, I am still laughing at you, not with you.
-- Den

Straynger -- Tough turn huh?  Sucks to be you, in more ways than one I am certain. --
Den

Hammer -- Sadly, the cottage you are staying in has been rented to another team.
Please vacate immediately and travel with your team to, well, anywhere but here.  I
am sure you will like it more over there anyway.  Even lepers shun your visual
horror, take flight my rotund friend and land where they care. -- Den

Banner Competition Idiots -- So, tell me stories of the ignorance behind this great
idea.  You pack of fools decide that there are too many teams here in Shadowspire so
you initiate a contest that chases handfuls of teams away.  My simple question; why?
What has this gained the arena?  You lowered our participation, and left us with
idiots like Kellumbo, Apex, & Slade (was not sure if he was fighting anymore, but
found his team on page 2 of the rankings, funny).  The Allied Axis has officially
called this contest off, we appreciate the work you did up front, but it is all for
naught.  The contest will not get started, and should never have been started.  Best
practice at this point is to simply manage your team and hope for victories (which
means avoid the AA).  What dunderhead could possibly have sat there and thought to
himself that we needed a contest?  This arena is growing above all others and offers
what we all want, which is not some dumb freaking contest.  Use that pimple above
your shoulders for something other than a hat rack.  As usual the AA has set things
straight.  In the unlikely event you actually are dumb enough to move forward with
this contest and keep the team participation low in the arena, know this dolts, the
AA will coordinate and focus our challenges each turn on the "banner team" in hopes
of wrecking this contest for each and everyone of you.  That is our promise, for
spreading fear, pestilence, and hate is our mantra. -- Den, High Priest of the Allied
Axis

Chakari -- Congratulations on regaining the throne.  Hopefully your second column
will be slightly less arrogant than your first.  It seemed to have irritated
Aldebaran a bit.  Unfortunately that only resulted in an out-of-character column, and
not a very successful fight.  In fact, a very unsuccessful fight.  A Bloodfeud will
be forthcoming. -- The Dragonbane Guild

Cheshire Rat -- Wipe that grin off your face!  I guess you were the one to break the
streak.  Well, it was fun while it lasted.  Now I need to go out and start another
one. -- Anvil Ironfist

Edward Gorey -- Congrats on starting 11-0.  It seems that neither of us could manage
to make it an even dozen to claim "best start" outright. -- Anvil Ironfist

Import-Export -- Nice fight and well done revenging your fallen comrade.  It was a
good fight, perhaps we will do it again sometime. -- Baron Stonewall

Djaik -- Was that challenge a mistake?  Because it really looked like a mistake to
me. -- Hardrada

Consorium? -- Perhaps you should have given Aldebaran the warning a turn earlier?
But, in truth, it was not arrogance that got him.  He was well aware that he barely
won your second fight and only barely won his first bout with Chakari.  He was aware
of his limitations, they simply caught up with him. -- Dragonbane Guild

Trog -- I see there is at least ONE worthy warrior on your stable.  Too bad your days
are numbered. -- Baldspot

Tcharlz -- Nice Desperation strat.  Thought you were number three on my kill list.  A
stalwart gladiator, yes indeed. -- Sponge Bath

PC -- Due to RL circumstances, I did not get my replacements into the Commission on
time for this turn.  I will only have 3 warriors running. -- Lord Xiang, AARP

Krysta -- Any time a new ru...er, geez, hun, let's just take it private, okay??
*grin* -- Sponge Bath

Freddy Ironfist -- Grandma got run over by a High Elf! -- Lord Xiang, AARP

Llud -- 4' Thick Glasses is not available at the moment.  He is currently in the
arena, having challenged the Bandit Prince. -- Lord Xiang, AARP
