                             Notes from the arena champ.

Sorry folks for missing the column last turn, and I don't have too much to say this
time out except my challenge goes out to Liath, and Trip, if you read my p-ad to
Consortium? you'll know that (damn I don't want this in print but...) I think Deana
is out of my league and I'm not sure that you won't ring my bell either.  Good luck!
Here's the numbers...12-11-8-21-11-10-11.  Mod-Low DA.  Eh, I think I did none too
shabby.  Grats to whoever ends up here next.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail SHADOWSPIRE!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  I want to know who's buying the drinks for who tonight at The Swinging 
Aardvark, seeing as WOODY'S WORKSHOP's 9-6-1 has earned them 4th place in the ranks.  
LA PENTARCHIE must be either in pain, or numb, having dropped from 2nd to 14th this 
turn, with a 1-4-0 acting as the weight.  Our condolences (or sneers, as the case may 
be) go out to LITERATE LOONS for their drop to 17th from 6th.  A 1-4-0 can do that.  
The 4-LETTER CAVEMEN guild has had a 4-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the 
future.  You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, RUPERT 
IRONFIST fought HARDRADA and gained 26 points and contributed to CLAN IRONFIST's 
2-3-0.  DEXTER has lost to GURG, falling 20 points, while helping make OF WOLF AND 
MAN a 2-3-0 turn.  This turn NUYEN NICK challenged LIATH in what was SHADOWSPIRE's 
Title bout.  Defending his title for another turn, NUYEN NICK kept OF WOLF AND MAN's 
warrior, LIATH, from claiming the throne.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I 
hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Swinging Aardvark 
until they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  KELLUMBO'S KIDS has cause to stand 
tall, as they were SHADOWSPIRE's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a 
team to beat.  And guess who avoided KELLUMBO'S KIDS stable the most?  Believe it or 
not, it was DARQUE AGES.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that 
PERFECT POREMBA from KATHOUSE was SHADOWSPIRE's most challenged warrior this turn.  
In a fit of brilliance or of stupidity (hard to say sometimes), DJAIMZ challenged THE 
SMALL CAT today, facing a 27 difference in recognition.  And whaddya know, DJAIMZ 
beat THE SMALL CAT, and the fighters of THE MONGOLOIDS II were last seen lifting 
frothy pints of ale in honor of DJAIMZ's 11 point gain.  I don't know about you, but 
DEANA challenging down 37 points to THE DRAUGS' CELEGDRAUG, is not really worthy of 
KELLUMBO'S KIDS.  We're not surprised to hear that DEANA bested CELEGDRAUG, but I bet 
it would be interesting to hear why KELLUMBO'S KIDS made such a challenge.  Tsk, tsk, 
tsk.  FELIX, does your manager know you're challenging down 28 points to fight ONYX 
from FUCHI OWNED?  I thought challenges were for warriors, not cowards looking for 
easy wins.  FELIX beat ONYX, is nothing sacred?  Well now, what do you expect when 
someone like '69 MUSTANG BOSS from AMERICAN MUSCLE challenges down 29 points to fight 
DESIREE of KELLUMBO'S KIDS?  It pains me to see warriors take advantage of the system 
like this.  '69 MUSTANG BOSS beat DESIREE, as if it surprises anyone.  Tsk, tsk, tsk. 
BRUTUS, does your manager know you're challenging down 17 points to fight DJEREE THE 
DJERK from THE MONGOLOIDS II?  I thought challenges were for warriors, not cowards 
looking for easy wins.  BRUTUS defeated DJEREE THE DJERK, is nothing sacred?  PLASMA 
CUTTER from WOODY'S WORKSHOP took a risk this turn by bravely challenging up 26 
points in a challenge against GRATH.  And now nobody knows where GRATH is right now, 
after giving PLASMA CUTTER 21 points worth of recognition.  As quiet chuckles rise 
behind me.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  HOUSE OF HEARTS made what looks to be a tough decision this turn, as 
they sent DOMINO, with a record of 8-10-0, to DOMINO death.  Farewell, hers.  You 
gotta do what you gotta do.  INEBRIATION has sent BUD WISER to the Dark Arena.  The 
deed is done.  Lift the ale, and toast the memory.  This is not good to see.  Why 
pray tell has BUD WISER been sent to the Dark Arena by INEBRIATION?  And why with a 
10-2-0 record??  Had I not seen it, it would be hard to believe.  BAD LASS was sent 
to the Dark Arena and lived to tell about it!  Makes you think, no?  A farewell 
moment, if you please, PERFECT POREMBA of KATHOUSE has been sent to the Dark Arena, 
and was carried out on hers shield.  The Swinging Aardvark declares a free round for 
BLACK MARIA and all of HOUSE OF HEARTS, for having revenged ELECTRIC KOOL-AID's THE 
HERMIT for killing one of their comrades.  Kudos go out to '70 SUPERBIRD this turn, 
for revenging AMERICAN MUSCLE's bloodfeud against THE MONGOLOIDS II's warrior BAHBI.  
Well done.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or 
hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in SHADOWSPIRE and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in SHADOWSPIRE again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Please be kind to my rookies!  Alice bears the name of my daughter, so be more than
kind, be gentle and caring...thanks to Sledge...Rapax Junior is more expendable, but
he is valiant, good luck to him. -- Le Pentarque

I keep thinking I could win, but I keep on losing...where is the hitch? -- Import-
Export

Grats to the grads! -- Le Pentarque

Gutenberg -- Time for some new scouts, the old ones must've [bleeped] you with that
challenge.  Spys in your midst? -- J.G. Ballard

Awl -- As pierced and punctured as I was, I still thought I had you for a second.
Those dark arena sirens are calling me again, but not yet, a reprieve I desperately
need! -- Conan Doyle

Felix -- Yeah, good one.  Ever hear of the tales of the brave and heroic masters of
war from ages past?  No?  I didn't think so. -- Edward Gorey

Balliol -- It's all about the challenges.  Sending Dominatrix after you this turn,
hopefully you don't get your avoid in. -- Warg

Drill Press -- Boy you're a big boy, I didn't like seeing that while going style
hunting. -- Grath

Downtown Brown -- I figured you were not all scummy, good thing I cranked up the heat
there -- Dexter

Kiri -- I was waiting for one of those dodges to turn into whoopass.  Lucky for me it
didn't. -- Big Ass Liath

Hombre -- Let me get a box of pink tissues for your crying.  Say what you will, but
when Kellumbo gets to 100 first.  Everyone will know, whether they want to admit it
or not that he was the first, thus the best to 100 wins. -- Tripwire

Duelmaster and Lord Protector Nick -- Congratulations for both throne and graduation.
You have indeed improved.  I should have listened to the Baron when he warned me
against that challenge.  But I had to try for the throne. -- Hardrada

Cyrus Ironfist -- Ow.  I think my head will be ringing for a long time after that
one.  You are worthy of that impressive record. -- Alanna Wyrmclaw

American Muscle -- Nice job avenging the death of your comrade.  Although I preferred
the result of the first bloodfeud, it is good to see a team honor their fallen
members.  I hope the new recruits are as full of gas as the old guys...wait, that
didn't come out quite right.  I hope they are as hot...no.  I hope they are as dated?
No....  Yeah, yeah, ads so simple a Caveman could do it.  Let's just say I wish you
well with the replacements. -- Gron da Caveman

Chupacabron -- I needed that. -- Baron Stonewall

Warg -- The only problem with that challenge was that I now have far more points than
is likely to be healthy.  But I do like the win. -- Balliol Blackmoon

Should either Kellumbo or Le Pentarque reach the 100 win mark this turn--
congratulations are offered by the Dragonbane Guild.  But we haven't given up the
race yet!

Stik ol' Partner -- Things are looking good so far--keep up the battle! -- Nomad

Sretsamleud II --  I did want to slow your team down a bit, but an offer of 4 turns
to bloodfeud had not been the plan.  I guess you can fight with Maiden Japan over me.
Just don't go throwing any pumpkins. -- Ichabod Crane

And what is a Stretsamleud anyway?

Kitten -- Not slippery enough.  I got you that time. -- Jacob Marley

Jagermeister -- That result was definitely a surprise.  Minor strategy tweakings were
needed, but alas are now of no use.  Well fought.  Expect a bloodfeud. -- The
Phantoms 

Running Free -- Run some other direction.  Go away.  I don't like that.  Leave my old
Bones alone! -- Bones

121 -- Huh.  I had wanted that match-up, but was surprised to see it come on a random
match-up.  Either way, Ancient Hero can rest in peace--again. -- Prowler

Consortium? -- Yeah, It was good thing to have that 'striker' tag because people
would normally assume I'm fast and could be riposted easily...turns out I'm all
attack and init, and I hit with just enough gusto, but I'm slower than molasses
compared to the other strikers.  Thanks for the kind words though. -- Nick

Kat -- I think the basic arena for strikers is like high school, I'm the cool popular
quarterback now, but alas in ADM, I'll be fat and serving the rest of the warriors
fries...lol. -- Nick

     As threatened, here is a current manager list for this arena.  Let me know if
     I've gotten anyone's name wrong! -- The Saint, keeper of lists
