                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ahh...the view from the high seat.  I must admit I like it here and hope that I
can remain.
     Burm was a worthy test to claim the throne--a quality warrior with faves
knowledge.  I am sure he will enjoy continued success on the Isle should Den wish to
allow him to continue his career.  On that note, congrats to both Burm and Mouse of
Pain for being graduates four and five from Shadowspire.  It won't be long until the
flood gates start to open and many of us stragglers start to graduate.
     It is a grand arena we are building here--29 teams is down a bit from the peak,
but still quite a nice total, especially since all 29 fought last turn.  We are
heading towards some firsts as well.  Not just the race to 100 wins, but AARP seems
to have taken a solid lead in the race to 10 kills.
     As for a contribution to the throne, I leave behind a memento of my comrade who
fell when he held this position, Aldebaran.  A small blade to honor the slasher who
first claimed the throne for the Guild.  Next turn, should I return to this seat, I
will include something for myself.
     Enjoy the games!

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to SHADOWSPIRE once again!  Biff!  Pow!  SHADOWSPIRE watched with 
glee as LA PENTARCHIE got knocked off top spot by ERRATA!  You know what they say 
about the herd of lions who studied a judge...  AARP moved up 11 places, to 12th.  
Looking for a good fight, confident, skilled, tough opponents.  Well don't look at 
WARMASTERS, cause they dropped by 12.  It seems so recently people were saying CULT 
OF BACCHUS was washed up, finished.  But 4-1-0 moved them up 1.  I guess they're 
washed no more...  What's with BREGDRAUG?  He actually beat DRAGONBANE GUILD's BARON 
STONEWALL, and walked away with 26 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at 
THE DRAUGS while they watched BREGDRAUG clobber BARON STONEWALL.  He lost 25 points 
and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  ERRATA's hatred of DRAGONBANE 
GUILD surfaced again as IMPALA challenged SHADOWSPIRE's top dog.  IMPALA was reminded 
on the sands why ANVIL IRONFIST 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...  SHADOWSPIRE thinks 
KELLUMBO'S KIDS and their 78-47-1 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give 
up...  The bums at CLAN LONGBEARD couldn't face the challenges from KELLUMBO'S KIDS!  
No excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged 
warrior, EDWARD GOREY!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  
Taunt your opponent CEDRIC IRONFIST!  That was my lucky charm when I was unfairly 
challenged.  (and by 20 points!)  INDIA should have an easy win.  INDIA defeated 
CEDRIC IRONFIST.  KELLUMBO'S KIDS calls this fighting?  In my day...  Maybe TEAM 
SAVAGE's HELL'S HERALD is one of those beasts who likes pain, or something.  That's 
what it'll get next week, after challenging up 26 to POWDER HOUND.  HELL'S HERALD 
found one way to advance:  challenging POWDER HOUND and losing, but getting 4 points. 
No brain, no pain.  CELEGDRAUG didn't quite know what to make of a challenge she 
received from FOUNTAIN of ERRATA, who is 18 points below her.  FOUNTAIN perhaps got 
his just desserts, seeing as he won victory over CELEGDRAUG and ended up with 99 
recognition points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  I like to see warriors put young whippersnappers in their 
place.  I guess you could say AARP'FALSE TEETH did just that.  Right HOUSE OF HEARTS? 
CYRUS IRONFIST larned his lesson (DOWNTOWN BROWN taught it well), and we right likely 
won't be seein' 'im fight any ALE HOUSE MERCS members with the same gusto.  How long 
have I been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     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

Dear Baron Stonewall, I must apologize:  you are still a nice teacher, but I was
pathetic....  Don't know what happened; I feel ashamed.  Will I have the courage to
fight again in the sun? -- Consortium?

Well done, Krek.  What a return! -- The Small Cat, getting smaller

Hunter is not so bad, as you saw, Kellumbo.... -- Rat-Loving Cat, smashed a few turns
ago

Vanek -- Your turn will come again! -- Le Pentarque

Ho!  Ha-Ha!  Guard!--Take Pride!  Rejoice!  You're a Loser!  So What?!  You're a
Loser!  With!  Lots of Popularity!  Yippee!! -- Edward Gorey

Natty Light -- Hey, I remember you.  Take a half pint of one of your friends, fill
the other half up with water, and Presto!  There's you. -- J.G. Ballard

Desiree -- A familiar strategy to you, no?  We like to return the proverbial favor
when we can, sweets. -- Durg

Import-Export -- Way to import the challenge, and export a win--brilliant!  Next time
I'll be ready for you, but I have to say, I felt a little rushed last turn.  Those
Geico ads are really crimping into my prep time. -- Thag

Indimar -- Welcome back to the Spire of Shadowiness, weary traveler.  But that's cold
man, though, coming back right *after* Elephest.  Tsketh. -- Nuln

Chromium -- You should talk to my brother Gurg, I think he could give you a few
pointers.  Nice try though. -- Nurm

Roque -- You should talk to my brother Nurm.  Why, I have no idea. -- Gurg

Degotti -- I see we both had the same idea, but from different ends of the style
matchup.  Hey, thanks for holding that drink for me <taking said drink>. -- Nuln

Pauly -- Congratulations on having a warrior named after your team, and him winning
his DA fight.  Here, have this sack of pig heads as your prize. -- Nuln, awarder of
random prizes

Gron da Caveman -- You realize it's only a matter of time before we cross blades,
don't you?  Oh yes brother, fate, she calls. -- Gark, Thak, Thag, Gurg &/or Durg

Spin1 -- Pointy thing go "pooka pooka." -- Gark

Cyrus Ironfist -- I must admit that when I saw you ranked higher than me in the
standings last turn, I thought what an injustice!  I figured to correct that
injustice with a quick challenge to put things in their proper places.  Although I
feel you got extremely lucky to pull out the win against me, I must admit that you
did humble me and I applaud you for both your victory and outstanding record thus
far! -- Decimus

DK -- Yes, it would appear that the race to 100 is on.  It is a shame that Doc isn't
around to hand out prizes since his original award was for the first to 75 wins...an
amount already surpassed.  It was a nice 3-2 for you this past turn, but not enough,
despite the two challenges thrown our way, one of them being a down challenge.  We
shall remember that tactic.  And Nightbane down-challenging someone else 8 points for
an 18-4 FE advantage?  Impressive. -- Nomad and the Dragonbane Guild

Tyra -- Nice challenge!  Was that a 16-6 FE advantage you failed to take advantage
of?  Nice try. -- Allana Wyrmclaw

Consortium? -- That was a fun little match-up. -- Baron Stonewall

Chaucer -- Did I win that one?  Seeing the style match-up I wasn't expecting such
success. -- Hardrada

Deana -- Only a couple points down.  I guess it could have been worse.  Well, the
result was worse.  Nice fight. -- Gron

Rouge -- Heh ...  hehe ...  haha ...  HAHA ...BWAHAHAHAHA ... end of course: LOL. --
