                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly SHADOWSPIRE games.  Former top team 4-LETTER CAVEMEN 
was unseated this week as BIG LAKE OUTCASTS moved up from 12th ranking to take the 
top spot with a 3-2-0 record for the round.  The proverbial rising comet can only 
hope to compare with BIG LAKE OUTCASTS' team record!  A 3-2-0 week and now a firm 
grasp on a 1st place ranking.  I have begun to suspect trickery on the part of CULT 
OF BACCHUS.  How else weeks like this one's 3-1-0?  How else the sudden move to 4th 
team?  The proverbial rising comet can only hope to compare with CLAN IRONFIST's team 
record!  A 4-1-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 5th place ranking.  My tutors were 
fond of telling me that the higher you rise the harder you fall.  This week D2 MIGHTY 
DUCKS went 0-5-0 and fell 23 notches into 27th!  My praise to KNIGHTBLADE for their 
4-1-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of 
notice!  FELIX caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully 
bested TYRA and was awarded 20 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more 
notable duels, DA VINCI put down LAB RAT, causing him to lose 16 points of 
recognition in the process.  Most watched of the fights this week, the spotlight was 
on HA-THRUST! as he bore arms against the challenge of reigning Duelmaster '76 GRAN 
TORINO.  Not for nothing has '76 GRAN TORINO in the past laid claim to the 
Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  
Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he never fights without 
pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  SHADOWSPIRE, city of gladiators!  
Mighty among the names of thy guilds is KELLUMBO'S KIDS, a guild shunned and avoided 
by many in the weekly duels.  Apparently the stalwarts of CLAN IRONFIST are catching 
the bulk of jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  
Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that 
many fighters are after TYRA.  Watch your back!  I cannot but express pride for the 
fearlessness of SNAKE EYES who cast caution to the winds and challenged ANVIL 
IRONFIST, a fighter 29 points higher.  The CHILDHOOD HEROES stable will be up late 
tonight, for indeed it was SNAKE EYES who claimed victory in the contest, ascending 
27 in recognition!  BUD WISER must really be harboring a grudge against the ALE HOUSE 
MERCS guild!  Merciless, 24 challenged down POWDER HOUND points this week to duel 
with it.  Surprising everyone, POWDER HOUND beat BUD WISER, earning 25 points of 
recognition in the process!  A knave's just desserts are the sweetest victory.  Give 
SGT. YORK credit for his courage.  Did you note how he challenged THE SMALL CAT 
despite the 26 point difference in their rankings?  In the end SGT. YORK was beat by 
THE SMALL CAT, a "sharp" reminder that higher recognition is an indication of greater 
skill.  Still, it was a worthy bout!  At the gambling halls I have started to bet 
money on FOUNTAIN.  He has got the courage it takes.  Witness his challenge this turn 
against ASHLYN!  I must admit to some joy.  Before my very eyes the underdog in this 
contest, FOUNTAIN, defeated ASHLYN to claim victory and recognition.  I can not but 
mention with disdain the name of NIGHTBANE who this week posted a challenge to a 
warrior a full 15 points below in the rankings.  I thought NIGHTBANE showed great 
skill and promise when it bested CAKE DADDY.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big 
deal!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Look no more for PAPA SMURF in the arena or on the streets of 
SHADOWSPIRE.  His fate was sealed in the Dark Arena.  Inevitable for one at 6-8-1.  
This week marked the last days of BLANDUS who at 7-5-0 was dispatched to the Dark 
Arena by the command of WARMASTERS' demanding management.  I have seen warriors die 
in youth.  I have seen women cut down in their prime.  This week KATHOUSE must mourn 
the loss of 9-5-0 ASHLYN to ERRATA.  My sources at ALE HOUSE MERCS stable claim 
they've never seen the guild bitterer.  This as a result of the untimely demise of 
ABBEY LEFFE.  Beware NUYEN NICK!  This week in mortal passion FOUNTAIN let the blood 
of ASHLYN, sending one more soul into the void.  Retribution by KATHOUSE seems 
inevitable!  HARDOR must hold silent, for this week he was humbled in the arena by a 
successful Bloodfeud won by BLOODY JAKE of WAR MACHINE.  Hail BLOODY JAKE for thy 
victory!  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!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till 
next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Alarond the Scribe -- You Suck. -- Ikillu

To All -- You are garbage. -- Ikillu

Elephant -- Thanks for the nice words.  The face was a great time with good friends.
-- Kellumbo

Anvil -- Nicely done on the change in your strat.  Well fought, and a nice victory
for you. -- Chakhari

Den -- I had to laugh at all the others who view you as a slug on the arena floor
last turn as well. -- DK

'76 Gran Torino -- Nicely done on holding the throne.  You have done the exact same
thing to me twice.  Next time I am in range, we'll see if a tweak in strategy will
pay off.  Again, grats on holding the throne for three turns.  Well done. -- DK

Duck E Fresh -- Man, did you pick the wrong scum to try to outscum. -- Nightbane

Consortium? is getting more and more able to win ugly fights where he does everything
wrong, then win! -- Le Pentarque

I read French names:  where are the Blade Mages coming from? -- Le Pentarque

Slim--
     Higgeldy-piggeldy
     irony of ironies
     Slim with the long beard
     was fat as a toad.

     "Why's it matter" cried he
     very emphatically
     "That I stuff my face
     I'm a mess of a load."
--e.e.cummings

Burm -- That was the most impressive defense and offense I have faced so far.  I felt
like swiss cheese.  Well played. -- PlagueNog

Ale House Mercs -- My basher pulls off a win against your striker and your guy is the
popularity leader?!?  The gladiatorial commission will be hearing about this. --
SwineTiger

Tyra -- You prepared for our fight well. -- Shadow Dancer

Chreld -- While I'm not normally the bloodthirsty type, you get what you ask for when
you hit a lady werecat in the groin with a big chunk of metal. -- Pandora

Sanglant -- HAR!  Now tha' be what I like ta see!  A good ole fashioned slugfest.  Ya
did well fer a Ratani.  By the stones, I even thought ya had me fer a second there.
I'll 'ave ta buy ya some strong dwarven ale, if ya think ya can handle that!  Har! --
Mythos

Lab Rat -- An 'ere i though ya weren't gonna put up a fight, seein as how all ya had
was that lil dagger.  Seems ya sure know how ta use it. -- Garn Ironfist

Gurg -- You're a dangerous one.  My teammates wouldn't have let me forget that if I'd
loss to a newcomer.  Bad matchup for you, bud...but you did well.  We'll be keepin'
an eye on you. -- Drex

Elephant -- I don' think yer talkin' ta me.  Even tha' score?  I'm 2-0 against yer
motorheads. -- Garn

Garth! Listen ta ya now fightin' with that tavern wench Pandora.  Ya should know
better than ta let a lass get under yer skin like that, 'specially one o' them
werecats.  They're only good fer two things...fightin an' well...ya know.  Well...I'm
hopin' ya know. -- Garn

Garn -- In your dreams, you egotistical runt! -- Pandora

Crambus -- Well, well!  Chalk one up for me!  And on your challenge no less!  I am
slowly chipping away at your kills lead! :P -- DeGotti

Edward Gorey -- Of all the random matchups how is I get stuck with you? -- Krysta

Tcharlz -- A little payback for the challenge I threw towards you a few turns back?
Well done! -- DeGotti

Chakari -- It will be interesting to see how you turn that loss into some form of
bragging.  Perhaps you should revise your "if-challenged" strategy?  Aldebaran has
been revenged. -- Anvil Ironfist

Ho! Ha-Ha! Guard!  -- Sometimes it is hard to write out that name with a straight
face.  But seriously, you have done a fine job of avenging your teammates honor.  I
respect that.  T-P-D can rest. -- Baron Stonewall

'70 Superbird -- Sometimes I think I do my best fighting when sitting on the ground.
