                              RETURN FROM THE MOUNTAIN
                       STARRING PAULY AND THE ALE HOUSE MERCS

     Pauly sat in his favorite booth at the Gringolet Lounge, enjoying a fine ale and
mulling over the mixed news he had received after returning from his horrible, yet
wondrous, journey to Shadowspire Mountain.  The bad news was that his best warrior
and captain of the Ale House Mercs, Red Tail, had been killed.  Pauly raised in mug
in a silent salute to the proud warrior.  He wondered if Barnabas had heard that Red
Tail had been killed.  After all, Red Tail had sworn revenge on Barnabas for the
fiasco in Aradi (Shadowspire newsletter turn 2).  The good news, however, was that
some able warriors had finally emerged out of the mass of beer bellied mercenaries
and Pauly's team actually had posted a winning three turn record (barely).  All of
this occurring while he had been fighting for his life on Shadowspire Mountain.  This
amazed Pauly to no end, since he had left Red Tail in charge.  He wondered which of
his warriors had stepped up and taken charge.  Most likely Grolsch, but he wasn't
sure since he hadn't been by the guild house since his return.  Pauly drained his
ale, threw down some coins, tossed the barmaid a wink and headed for the door.
     As he crossed out into the street, Pauly couldn't help but feel that the
previous paragraph was extremely boring and way too serious.  He decided he must be
spending too much time away from Aradi.
     Almost on cue, Nuln appeared running down the street in his burnt sienna Chaos
Jogging Suit(tm).  Why it needed spikes Pauly wasn't sure, but it looked cool.
     "Hey Nuln!  Where you running off too?" asked Pauly
     Nuln stopped in front Pauly and stooped over huffing and puffing trying to catch
his breath.  "Those damn new warriors of mine keep sneaking over to the blacksmith's
shop to stare at the fire.  I'm just trying to get over there before they break
something."
     "Well, they are cavemen," said Pauly.
     "Like I need to be reminded of that.  I gotta run."  And with that Nuln was off
like a Chaos Rabbit(tm).
     As Pauly approached the guild house of the Ale House Mercs he happened to glance
down an alley way and couldn't believe his eyes.  Two men stood together and Pauly
knew them both.  One was Alberta Clipper, a big brute of a fighter who had killed two
of Pauly's warriors.  One of whom was Red Tail.  Seeing Alberta wasn't what shocked
Pauly though.  It was the man standing next to him.  Barnabas.  Pauly tried to push
his way through the busy streets to get to the alley but his vision was blocked and
by the time he reached the alley it was empty.  Did Barnabas pay Alberta Clipper to
kill Red Tail?  It was not beyond the man.  Pauly planned to find out, but first he
was going to find out who had been running the show while he was away.
     Finally reaching the guild house, Pauly saw Grolsch lounging around out front.
     "Grolsch! Good to see you!  So, who's been running the show for me?" asked
Pauly.
     Grolsch opened his mouth to answer but changed his mind and instead said, "You
better just see for yourself.  He's in your office.  Hey!  What the heck happened on
your exploration of Shadowspire Mountain, by the way?"
     Puzzled by Grolsch's response, Pauly pushed his way into the building saying,
"I'll tell you later, but needless to say, it's probably the greatest story you'll
ever hear."
     Pauly's curiosity was piqued as came to his office door.  He pushed it open to
find a monkey sitting in his chair.  Apparently he was in the middle of redecorating,
and by redecorating I mean throwing his poop all over the walls.  The chimp looked at
Pauly and smiled.  All Pauly could was stand there and stare and say, "What the funkenwaggle!?"
               To be continued....

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Greetings Shadowspire!!

     It is a great honor to serve as your Duelmaster.  My first order of business is
to remove Aldebaran's skull from the throne room and return it to Dragonbane Guild
for a proper burial.  I know you will avenge Aldebaran.
     The last two turns have been great for me personally.  I took much enjoyment in
knocking off two of Shadowspire's biggest loud mouths in Chakhari and Burm Wolfsnarl.
One last question for Chakhari.  If you're a "tourney worthy Duelmaster" that must
make me a "Tourney Worthier Duelmaster"?
     My memento for the throne room is a DVD copy of Starsky & Hutch.  The codex
entry is "I wuz here".
     My challenge goes to HA-THRUST.  Good luck and much love to my teammates.

Until next time,

'76 Gran Torino
Duelmaster, Shadowspire

P.S.  Elephest 2007 is coming to Shadowspire.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Take a look at 
DARQUE AGES' act, as they have a 4-1-0 week and gain 11 places in the team ranking.  
Rising in the ranks like a loaf of armored bread (okay, I admit it's corny) is 
4-LETTER CAVEMEN, who swept up 15 places in the ranks.  Take a look at CULT OF 
BACCHUS' act, as they have a 4-1-0 week and gain 14 places in the team ranking.  
Rising in the ranks like a loaf of armored bread (okay, I admit it's corny) is 
LITERATE LOONS, who swept up 11 places in the ranks.  What goes up, must come down.  
Watch out SHADOWSPIRE!  FUCHI OWNED may fall on you as it crushes past the teams 
below it to fall on the 19th spot.  Take a look at BLACK ROSE's act, as they have a 
3-2-0 week and gain 11 places in the team ranking.  Rising in the ranks like a loaf 
of armored bread (okay, I admit it's corny) is CLAN IRONFIST, who swept up 14 places 
in the ranks.  Suffering under a 3-2-0 record and dropping from 14th to 25th place 
were the KATHOUSE.  Keep trying!  A seasoned team is steady in the lists.  But to THE 
DRAUGS, which fell to 28th, it's what you soak in before going to the Dark Arena.  
What goes up, must come down.  Watch out SHADOWSPIRE!  THE MONGOLOIDS II may fall on 
you as it crushes past the teams below it to fall on the 31st spot.  BIG LAKE 
OUTCASTS is no joke as it posted a 5-0-0 week advancing from 21st place to 17th 
place.  Hey everybody, watch out for RUPERT IRONFIST, who flew up 19 points in the 
rankings after mashing DJOHEY DJR. like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya 
know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  DJOHEY DJR. was subdued by 
RUPERT IRONFIST and drops 18 points.  Well here's a duelmaster that doesn't sit back 
and say 'Challenge me'!  '76 GRAN TORINO made a challenge against HA-THRUST! this 
week.  Going for the gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was D2 MIGHTY 
DUCKS' HA-THRUST!, who was turned away from the Duelmastership by '76 GRAN TORINO.  
Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that BIG LAKE OUTCASTS was 
most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of BIG LAKE 
OUTCASTS' warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you who like math, try this one: 
BIG LAKE OUTCASTS + Weapons That go Boom = KELLUMBO'S KIDS + Avoid City.  Well just 
about everybody wants a piece of BORING!?!, who was this week's most challenged 
warrior.  Getting lots of flowers from sympathetic fans was SEDUCTION HAMMER, who was 
successfully challenged by POWR GORESLINGER who had a mere 24 points more than 
SEDUCTION HAMMER.  Definition of petty:  POWR GORESLINGER won victory over SEDUCTION 
HAMMER, a mismatch of 24 points.  Challenging down 19 points was INDIA.  Pretty soon 
she'll be using two shields and selling 'T.P.:  The only way to clean up' pins.  
Definition of petty:  INDIA bested MURAT, a mismatch of 19 points.  Can any one out 
there say 'weasel'?  Oh well, just saying GARK will do.  He challenged 16 points down 
to trash FERAL FERRET.  Definition of petty:  GARK overcame FERAL FERRET, a mismatch 
of 16 points.  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, THE BIG CAT went after 
BURM WOLFSNARL, who was higher by 24 points.  Well, when the dust settled, THE BIG 
CAT was defeated by BURM WOLFSNARL.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Carrion Bird Cinematic Humor:  
TURN-PARRY-DODGE II:  THE REMATCH.  DRAGONBANE GUILD has one more week to get their 
bloodfeud off.  I talked to the manager, but he could only grunt 'ALDEBARAN who?'.  
Ya gotta luv em!  In the 'Oops, What Have I Done?' category, BRENDAN BEHAN was mashed 
by TROG, who let BRENDAN BEHAN know that killing members of WAR MACHINE is a no-no.  
Knowing when to use the right tactics at the proper time is a very important step on 
the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, there's the manager of the SHADOWSPIRE giving me the 'cut' sign (or is 
that 'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you 
worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster

Garth Ironfist -- I'm flattered for the challenge you sent my way, but you sure don't
fight like your older brother.  Garn tells me you always ran home cryin' like a
halfling girl when there was trouble.  I see now that his stories weren't far from
the truth.  Cryin' or not, you should probably go home. -- Pandora

Poker Face -- Now I understand your nickname.  You might be good at bluffing, but
when it's time to play your hand, you fall short. -- Shadow Dancer

Copernicus -- Har!  Just when I was startin' ta feel pretty complacent here, I get a
taste o' Kannari made axe served up on a platter o' me own blood.  Good showin', I'll
be lookin' forward ta the next time we cross paths. -- Garn Ironfist

Borec -- I don't expect much from you half-breed elf types, an' ya showed me why last
fight.  Try usin' yer weapon next time.  Har! -- Mythos

Dalek -- Nothin much to say, bud.  I'd suggest you start learning blindfighting,
because I'll put good money on Lord Falca Erindane sending you to fight a Shewish
Giant soon. -- Drex

Elephant -- Thanks for the challenges.  We needed some easy wins to make up for our
recent batch of DA losses.  76 Gran Torino obviously has a different trainer. --
SwineTiger

La Pentarchie -- Even with my victory against Import-Export, you have still been my
toughest competitor.  I will be keeping an eye on you, mon amie. -- SwineTiger

Chakhari -- I told you to sweep the leg! -- SwineTiger

What a surprising outcome, my friend Blair!  I hope this lucky streak will last; it's
sweet to win fights you should have lost.... -- Consortium?

Nomad -- My wish got you some opportunities to bloodfeud Chakhari!  And after these
splendid learns, we won't bother the baron anymore.... -- Consortium?

I'm going to try a few stupid challenges. -- Le Pentarque

Mouse of Pain -- Well, what I can say?  Painful.... -- Import-Export

Hardrada -- I sure hate losing like that.  It makes me look bad.  Oh, wait...I'm 4-
7...I am bad. -- Rupert Ironfist

Djaimz -- Skewered again!!! -- Cedric Ironfist

Spotlight Writers -- Keep up the good work! -- Clan Ironfist

Det. Kellumbo -- Don't worry, I'll be using my avoids when in DC range of your two
turtles.  Send 'em after Den. :) -- Nuln

Player Committee -- So do you even exist anymore?  'Cuz you guys owe me five bucks.
-- Nuln

Pauly -- Ale House Mercs are on the rise like a chunk of francium...or something.
Must be something in the waters of Rio Vista, I don't know.  Now you just need to go
3-2 for 9 straight turns. :) -- Nuln
P.S.  Way to NOT jinx yourself!

Elephanto -- The Return of Elephest is on, congratulations again.  Like I say,
something in that Rio Vistan water.  You could bottle and sell it during TOGS (of
course giving fake ones to Death Stud). -- Nuln

B Feud Bait Hammer -- I was very disappointed to see you when you walked on the sands
and you weren't a stand-in, as there went the perfect five-fecta.  Nevertheless, good
to see you back in the 'Spire. -- cave-translator for Gark the caveman

Persistent Beggar -- I spit on your grave. -- cave-translator for Thak

Grolsch -- Perhaps another challenge seems a bit weak, but really, you should just be
annoyed with whoever decided to rank you above me!  Obviously that was a bad ranking.
-- Anvil Ironfist

La Pentarchie -- I am glad to hear that you won't be aiming for my head.  I do like
it where it currently sits.  As for the unfriendly challenges, it was nothing
personal; we simply saw match-ups we liked.  L'Heritier has been avenged and may rest
in peace. -- Baron Stonewall

Rupert Ironfist -- Nice fight, you almost had me.  Just knocking me off my feet isn't
always enough. -- Hardrada

Joan of Arc -- Wow, was that fight ugly.  Losing I understand, but that was
ridiculous.  Congrats on a serious butt-kicking.  Ouch. -- Baron Stonewall

Commander Hammer -- Nicely done.  I can see why Hammer likes your style.  Very
impressive. -- Black Arrow

Hammer -- I hoped you had left for good.  Maybe we can get you to have another
freakout session so you pazz out and quit again.  Hee Hee. -- Crambus, War Machine

Kellumbo -- Shut your yack, your breath smells worse than crap with burnt hair on it.
-- Crambus, Allied Axis

Degotti -- I can't kill your warriors when you don't play.  You're not playing by the
rules. -- Crambus, mgr. of War Machine, Shadowspire's kill leader, and Head Court
Jester of the famed Allied Axis

Detective Kellumbo -- Very impressive words coming from a nothing manager.  Do you
believe I would be frustrated because a nobody like you does not know who I am?
Understand social leper, I could not give two rats' behinds if you ever understand
the greatness that is "Den".  I fight for my own enjoyment and I scream with glee
when I am able to bring a little rain, darkness, and fear to insignificant losers
like you.  Have you taken a step back and looked at your team?  Pathetic, truly and
utterly pathetic.  Tell me great detective, did you use your vast research knowledge
to investigate all available warriors and employ only those that could stand still
under a hundred pounds of plate armor?  What a miracle of accomplishment you have
shown us.  Shadowspire take note, the great detective has shown us how to run an
effective scum campaign, what an absolute genius!  When you are able to employ the
more challenging styles, look me up and we can grapple, until then continue to use
your "avoids", you will need them.  I am less than impressed with you at this point.
-- Den

Nomad -- Don't talk to me unless you refer to me as "Mr. Den", you have not earned
the right to speak to me with a common tongue.  Is it not time for you to be moving
on anyway? -- Den

Pentarque -- I am greatly displeased with last turn's results.  I am certain your
emotions were the opposite, thus you will be punished. -- Den

Rillion -- I appreciate the diplo noting the styles and rhythms of all Hammer's
warriors.  It will be put to good use. -- Den

Lord Xiang -- Please challenge my warriors, I would enjoy the easy wins. -- Den

Nuln -- Hmm, are you actually a 4 letter caveman disguised as a Chaos Lord (tm)? --
Pauly

Elephant -- It might be a while before Indimar returns to Shadowspire.  He says he's
too busy remodeling the Scrod Shoppe/ Scrodbucks for the upcoming TOGS. -- Pauly

Anvil Ironfist -- Whew, good thing you told me how to challenge...  otherwise I might
not have been able to tell Orc how to kick Gron's butt. -- Nuyen Nick

Nuln -- I know how you feel bud.  I started this team cuz of one warrior, who turned
out to be hosed and learns awful.  So they're all pretty average but at least I can
set little goals for them.  Getting over the 50% hump was nice.  I guess my next goal
would be to match up with 4 stand-ins no? -- Hombre

Elephant -- Nice....  Serious grats on the throne.  Burm then Chakkari....  Make your
DM's column humble though, It seems that as soon as you talk a little smack, the
smack gets laid down. -- Hombre

Felix -- Nice skills and nicer rating.  I have a feeling that I should be real glad I
got that win when I did.... -- Nick (filling out the wish to avoid section...)

9 July 2007
I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.
If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta
