Elephest 2007

And the winner of Elephest 2007 is................. Sherman.  Sherman is granted the
title "Promoter Elephest 2007" and will receive 4 team rollups.  Master Darque and
Pauly will both receive a team rollup for their efforts.

Due to real world issues I have to cut this short.  I promise to have more next time
out.  Once again a thanks to Master Darque, Sherman and Pauly for their efforts.
This didn't go as planned and hopefully next year's will have more spotlights.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

Greetings Shadowsprire!!
     Hello, again!  Wow 7 in a row.  Now that's something I don't think will ever be
topped here in Shadowspire.  It's an honor to have served as your Duelmaster and to
have a place in history.  I am also honored to have been granted the title Lord
Protector.  Congrats to my fellow Lord Protectors, Copernicus and Chakhari.  I'm off
to the Isle; I hope to see the both of you there.
     My challenge this turn goes to my friend and former Duelmaster, Mouse of Pain.
Good luck, friend.  I like your odds, since I'm fighting on my favs this turn and not
so sure of them.  To help some of you gauge what it takes, I leave with Advanced
Experts in Int and Attack.  Experts in Defense and Dec (sorry for speaking out of
character).
     My mementos this turn for the throne room are 8x10 photos of the 72' Miami
Dolphins and Joe DiMaggio.  Sticking with sports themes, my codex entries are both
from Yogi Berra.  "If you don't know where you're going, chances are you will end up
somewhere else."  "If the world were perfect, it wouldn't be."
     As always, good luck and much love to my teammates.

So long and good luck to all,

Lord Protector, '76 Gran Torino
Duelmaster, Shadowspire

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome SHADOWSPIRE.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Woof!  THE DRAUGS were 
a bunch of dogs after DRAGONBANE GUILD got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 
1st!  Looking for a good fight, confident, skilled, tough opponents.  Well don't look 
at RODENT CLAN, cause they dropped by 11.  LITERATE LOONS showed SHADOWSPIRE what 
they were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk off with 4-1-0.  What's 
with THE SMALL CAT?  He actually beat ALE HOUSE MERCS' GROLSCH, and walked away with 
22 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at ALE HOUSE MERCS.  GROLSCH lost 19 
points to THE SMALL CAT.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe GROLSCH will provide 
more easy wins...  CHAKHARI was reminded on the sands why '76 GRAN TORINO is 
Duelmaster.  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your 
fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  The most avoided team 
was KELLUMBO'S KIDS.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at LA PENTARCHIE ain't 
reelin'!  KELLUMBO'S KIDS' mad!  What do people see in BELLE MORTE?  Hers 1-5-0?  
BLADE MAGES ain't talkin', but she's got 8 points.  CHESHIRE RAT didn't quite know 
what to make of a challenge she received from ZIPPO of ERRATA, who is 23 points below 
her.  ZIPPO perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he was beat by CHESHIRE RAT and 
ended up with 45 recognition points.  I hate going to the effort of writing about the 
kind of fights that LIATH gets in.  She fights people like CYRUS IRONFIST, 14 points 
below.  I thought LIATH showed great skill and promise when she was defeated by CYRUS 
IRONFIST.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Someone told HADES' ANGEL that BLADE MAGES never Bloodfeuded, 
that it'd have an easy kill.  Well, I'm sure whoever misled you is right sorry.  Many 
a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!  
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
The end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want 
to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

All -- For those interested in such things, Copernicus (WS) 15-12-9-15-17-3-13.  He
went above and beyond expectations to receive his invite at 20 FE.  The Gladiatorial
Commission has informed me that his faves are BS, HI/LO, and he likes to learn
Decise.  He now goes to retirement and hopes for a day when there will be an ADM non-
tourney arena. -- Master Darque

Ack!  The Draugs want our 7th place!  We will try to send back a few challenges....
-- La Pentarchie

Grats to our first immortals:  the absolute Duelmaster, the guy with the best ratio,
and the tourney-worthier!

Damn...lucky again...will the wheel turn on turn 21?? -- Consortium?

By the way, not a lot of ads...don't forget its an old-style arena, managers! -- Le
Pentarque

'69 Daytona -- Who could've predicted that a flying elbow smash from the top
turnbuckle and a Fu Manchu karate chop would make all the difference? -- Brendan
Behan

Onyx -- I got a little closer to victory there.  Assuming, of course, that 'closer' 
is actually a  synonym for 'woefully inadequate and incapable of winning any battle
at any time'.  So reads my dictionary. -- Chesterton

India -- After turn upon turn of similar challenges, finally, a get. -- J.G. Ballard

Nuyen Nick --
     Oh Nuyen Nick,
     That lucky hick,
     He went and won a fight.

     But where is at,
     That poor Lab Rat?
     He just went off and died.
-- e.e. cummings

Nomad and the entire Dragonbane Guild would like to offer congratulations to the
first three graduates from Shadowspire:  '76 Gran Torino, Copernicus, and Chakari.
Special congrats go out to Torino for his long stay on the throne.  Well done.
Hopefully soon there will be a no-tournament AD in which to participate.

Da Vinci -- Honestly, Anvil made it look so easy I just had to try.  Don't worry, you
are safely ranked below most of us now. -- Baron Stonewall

Rupert Ironfist -- A matchup of Ironfists!  I would like to point out that I did not
challenge on that one.  Hardrada had already pulled that trick enough.  Nice fight.
-- Anvil Ironfist

Krysta -- I wasn't sure about that challenge.  I pulled it out, but it was close. --
Hardrada

Heelhacker -- Well, considering the significant FE difference, I can't say I am
surprised by the loss.  But I was disappointed by the low skill learns.  Perhaps that
was an indication of why you are still in the initiates? -- Alanna Wyrmclaw

Zontani Sharp Eyes -- There was nothing improper about the Bad Lass/Bronko fight.  It
was merely a rematch. -- The Ocelot of Observation: Kat

Bronko -- ...and it was precisely that--a rematch.  Good dueling. -- Kat

'76 Gran Torino, Copernicus, and Chakhari -- Congrats on the invitations to ADM.  As

the first representatives of Shadowspire, I've no doubt you'll represent the arena
well.  Special kudos to Copernicus; 18-2?  Fine gladioratorship indeed! -- The
Persian of Praise: Kat

Chakhari -- Good riddance. -- Whlotta Rosie
