                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, who would have dreamed little me up there??  I guess that The Clapper
didn't write his Word and was punished.  Worse, this guy is not a Rat!  Where have
all the Rats gone??
     Import-Export was supposed to lead this team, but he is importing more hits than
exporting these days.
     My manager is in the blue, being unable to behold our fights...so I will hold
the ground by myself.
     Finally, as a testimony for my likely short stay on the throne, I will leave a
golden Rat for you to worship !

Rat-Loving Cat

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of SHADOWSPIRE!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team VIRTUES was unseated 
this week as ALE HOUSE MERCS moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot with a 
3-2-0 record for the round.  My praise to DARQUE AGES for their 4-1-1 week this time 
out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of notice!  CELEGDRAUG 
caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested 
DOWNTOWN BROWN and was awarded 27 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more 
notable duels, CELEGDRAUG put down DOWNTOWN BROWN, causing him to lose 34 points of 
recognition in the process.  This time out LIATH made hers bid for the throne as she 
challenged RAT-LOVING CAT in an all out contest of skill for possession of the title! 
Although LIATH made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious RAT-LOVING CAT.  Would you believe that over half of the old women in 
SHADOWSPIRE seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In SHADOWSPIRE "art" is a word that 
has long since passed from the language!  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.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard 
pressed to find any of VIRTUES last week.  Busy avoiding KELLUMBO'S KIDS?  Mighty 
fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  MIRADRAUG take warning!  
You have more than a few enemies in SHADOWSPIRE.  Give ONYX credit for hers courage.  
Did you note how she challenged SLIM despite the 26 point difference in their 
rankings?  To be sure the battle was a losing one.  But I like to think ONYX at least 
gave SLIM a run for his money.  At the gambling halls I have started to bet money on 
DEXTER.  He has got the courage it takes.  Witness his challenge this turn against 
ANGRENDRAUG!  I must admit to some joy.  Before my very eyes the underdog in this 
contest, DEXTER, defeated ANGRENDRAUG to claim victory and recognition.  I cannot but 
express pride for the fearlessness of MCBAIN who cast caution to the winds and 
challenged LLUD, a fighter 34 points higher.  The FUCHI OWNED stable will be up late 
tonight, for indeed it was MCBAIN who claimed victory in the contest, ascending 18 in 
recognition!  As a gladiator gets older, the icy grip of fear lays hold of his heart. 
True, BRUTUS?  Who could miss your "brave" challenge of GRATH?  Surprising everyone, 
GRATH won victory over BRUTUS, earning 19 points of recognition in the process!  A 
knave's just desserts are the sweetest victory.  I can not but mention with disdain 
the name of DEANA who this week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 11 points 
below in the rankings.  I thought DEANA showed great skill and promise when she was 
defeated by GRON DA CAVEMAN.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Many townsmen have begin to remark over the fact 
that after one more round of duels CAROLINA BLUE's Bloodfeud against LUTHERIUS will 
have expired.  My hearty congratulations '70 SUPERBIRD, for thy revenge upon AWL, 
slayer of thy fallen comrade.  Next time he will know better, eh?  CHUPACABRON must 
hold silent, for this week it was humbled in the arena by a successful Bloodfeud won 
by CORK of CELTIC PRIDE.  Hail CORK 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!  More than a sharp eye must I 
keep, indeed a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari 
await me!  Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, 
and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Thanks for the good vibes, mighty Swinetiger! -- Rat-loving Cat

All our condolences for the untimely demise of Decimus. -- Le Pentarque

And grats to Darque for the 100 mark...he is in the run to 200! -- Le Pentarque

Dominatrix -- You get one, we got one.  Next time, perhaps. -- Balliol

Slim -- Close.  It didn't quite work, but I was close.  Maybe next time. -- Hardrada

Crimson -- Now that was a nice little random match-up. -- Alanna

Petrarch -- Perhaps I should offer you the same thanks as Balliol.  Nice try. -- Gron

'Grats to Natty Light. -- The Guild

Gron Da Caveman -- I'm not really having much luck against your team or your style.
-- Petrarch

Gark -- It ain't a flashy style, but it wins fights. -- Gutenberg

Le Depeceur -- My element of surprise is only good for one fight, and then people
kind of figure out my game. -- Hugh Capet

PO'D Panda -- I'm not really sure how to gauge random match ups.  I always know they
could have turned out differently with just a few minor tweaks.  Hopefully we will
meet again in the future. -- Charlamagne

Borne -- Style advantage was mine if you believe in such things.  However, you can
tell from my record and tell that those don't always go my way. -- Chaucer

All -- My 81 newsletter keeps getting smaller and smaller.  Now Ed. may enjoy (or
perhaps she does not) the smaller work load; however, let us try and do a bit better.
Let us keep the old arena flavor of 81 going and submit personals and spotlights and
ramblings and threats and boasts and more threats and extremely long sentences
without the use of proper punctuation. -- Master Darque
P.S.  Also, don't forget to throw in a P.S. every now and again.
P.P.S.  Post Post Scripts are even effective at times too.

To Those Who Submit Personals Regularly -- Thank you for making the newsletter more
than just a collection of numbers and fight reports.  I know there are more than one
of you, but in particular Le Pentarque comes to mind.--Master Darque

The Shadowspire Yellow Press will return on Turn 37 with a special report on death.
Information gleaned from 36 turns of fighting will be presented.  Who is the most
deadly (and no, it is not determined by the quantity of kills)?  Who DA's the most
warriors?  If you are an aspiring fighter with hopes of living, which teams should
you avoid joining?  All will be revealed on Turn 37 with the Shadowspire Yellow Press
Special Report.

India -- Was that an upchallenge?!?!?  Guess you caught me a bit off guard there.  I
gave you a run for your money though.  I'm sure you thought I'd be an easy win, but I
think I clearly proved otherwise. -- Lutherius

Firmitas -- I guess your record isn't a fluke after all.  Well done. -- Scarro

Decimus -- You may have fallen, but you will never be forgotten.  Your teammates and
I salute you. -- Vanek, manager of Warmasters

All -- I have been lax in submitting the mens' weekly quotes, so this some catching
up. -- Visionist

Djaimz -- Damn Golems. -- Llud

Hardrada -- Hope the arm is okay. <Laughing> -- Slim

Kobe -- Keep it up, I won't be a pushover much longer. -- Gerth
