# of Team Present from TURN
1 and presently active that
have NOT graduated a warrior
to ADM:                        3

     We here at the SYP hope for more and more gradautes to pour forth from
Shadowspire (and even our sister no-tourney arena Telorinthe).  The SYP is hoping to
one day report from a no-tourney ADM arena and set up offices on the Isle of the Eye.
     Join us at the SYP next cycle when we will take a look at the glorious position
of Duelmaster!

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to SHADOWSPIRE once again!  Bein' on top is great while it lasts, 
CULT OF BACCHUS.  But how many friends do you have now?  Who can explain it?  Not 
you, not me, not LA PENTARCHIE's opponents, after watching them shoot up the ranks 
from 15th to 4th.  You know what they say about the herd of lions who studied a 
judge...  BIG LAKE OUTCASTS moved up 11 places, to 12th.  What's with TABITHA?  She 
actually beat WARMASTERS' BRUTUS, and walked away with 22 more points from the fight. 
Major screwup at WARMASTERS.  BRUTUS lost 21 points to TABITHA.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe BRUTUS will provide more easy wins...  See how the Duelmaster 
Bloodfeuded BATTLE GRUNTS' HUNTER?  That sort of initiative is how he got where he is 
now.  Try as he might, HUNTER wasn't good enough at persuading POWDER HOUND to step 
down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to 
practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  The most avoided team 
was OF WOLF AND MAN.  The bums at WARMASTERS couldn't face the challenges from OF 
WOLF AND MAN!  No excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, LIMRICK!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt 
you.  DEANA expects the easy win by going 35 points down.  SPONGE BATH will find this 
a hard lesson!  I have to get this off my chest.  What a low dog, DEANA!  She can't 
set herself up in a real match.  I was sorry to see SPONGE BATH lose.  Taunt your 
opponent DAGRDRAUG!  That was my lucky charm when I was unfairly challenged.  (and by 
21 points!)  TYRA should have an easy win.  TYRA's gonna be practicin' hard this 
week, after DAGRDRAUG, lower ranked by far, mashed her!  Maybe WOODY'S WORKSHOP's 
BALL-PEEN is one of those guys who likes pain, or something.  That's what he'll get 
next week, after challenging up 28 to GRATH.  I don't get it.  BALL-PEEN goes and 
challenges GRATH, way above him, but gets 4 points after he loses!  Is this a new 
strategy?  ANGUS of CLAN LONGBEARD knows how to pick 'em.  He challenged FLOR of CULT 
OF BACCHUS who is up by 23.  Now was this a wise move?  ANGUS perhaps got his just 
desserts, seeing as he was beat by FLOR and ended up with 98 recognition points.   
     Warriors of SHADOWSPIRE unite.  You have only your games to lose!  HUNTER was 
plum wore out after POWDER HOUND pounded 'im silly in a Bloodfeud.  BATTLE GRUNTS'll 
have to get a little better before going after POWDER HOUND again!  ANGRENDRAUG 
larned his lesson (GRON DA CAVEMAN taught it well), and we right likely won't be 
seein' 'im fight any DRAGONBANE GUILD members with the same gusto.  Someone told HUGH 
CAPET that LA PENTARCHIE never Bloodfeuded, that he'd have an easy kill.  Well, I'm 
sure whoever misled you is right sorry.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, 
master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Well, grats to Powder Hound, this guy is a living shotgun, and the Cat was lucky to
hold the ground 4 minutes!  The throne will be mine again (one day). -- Le Pentarque

That French Capet guy is definitely tough, I will have to use some old fart to get
that bloodfeud done.  By the way, thanks to Darque for his work on statistics.

Condolences to Nomad.  Alanna was a valiant gal. -- Le Pentarque
P.S.  Write some ads, guys!  Take 5 minutes....

Darque -- I don't know what's gotten into my warriors but they really seem to dislike
yours.  One Death and two Death intents!  I don't run my warriors with high KD's
either!  But according to the Yellow Press it seems I get one kill every twelve turns
average! -- DeGotti

Alana -- Alas!  We will not be able to dance again unless it's in the afterlife! --
Flor

Shadowspire Yellow Press -- Great job!  I had no idea that my stable was that deadly!
I also thought I would have been much higher in the deaths category! -- DeGotti

In honor of Cult of Bacchus being current top team we are having a wine party in the
name of Bacchus!  May he guide us to more glory!  So come down to the guild house and
enjoy, all! -- DeGotti

Onyx -- Scum me?  Maybe.  OTP me?  No. -- Liath

Brutus -- Yeh!  That went way longer than I thought it would. -- Grath

Chaucer -- When I saw who I was fighting I was shocked at the outcome. -- Dexter

Angrendraug -- This is a very sad day.  A loss was not a surprise, but the death was
truly sad.  Alanna was a quality warrior and will be missed.  And hopefully avenged.
-- Dragonbane Guild

Borne -- It was a pleasure meeting you!  Perhaps youth has its privileges. --
Balliol

Chupacabron -- Well, now that was a very interesting fight.  I'm not used to having
them last that long.  Intriguing.  And successful. -- Gron

Dominatrix -- Tired of us yet?  I'd been struggling a bit lately and needed that one!

Congrats to the new Duelmaster. -- Dragonbane Guild

Grath -- Your first victory was a fluke due to an error on the strategy sheet.  The
second victory however, was not.  Congratulations, you fought well and deserved that
second win. -- Brutus

Sponge Bath -- I couldn't help myself.  After you proved to be such an outstanding
teacher the first time, I was hoping for more of the same the second time.  Your
teaching skills however earned an F for the second time around. -- Lutherius

Dragonbane Guild -- Our condolences on the loss of Alanna.  We know the pain that
comes from losing a very good warrior. -- Vanek, manager of Warmasters

Gladiatorial Commissioner -- If I get one more 3 wit replacement, I may be forced to
release the compromising photos I have of you and that circus midget.  Don't say I
didn't warn you! -- Vanek

All -- It's been fun but it's time for me to say goodbye.  I was involved in the
first title fight (I lost), Duelmaster for 2 turns and now on my way to AD. -- '69
Mustang Boss

Awl -- The sooner you die, the sooner we can be done with this. -- American Muscle

RUGS -- I have three coming your way. -- Elephant

All -- Sorry for my long silence. -- Elephant

Trip -- What's the score I lost count at 5-0 me? -- Elephant

31 May 2008
Any and all who live in the 805 area, I would like for you to call me so we can get
together for BBQ's, softball games, and so on.  It has been a while since the last
get together (several years).  It was a blast and I am sure the next one will be
also.  We just have to do it.  All alliances are welcome.  Just because my warriors
leave your warrior beaten and bloody in defeat does not mean we can't have a beer or
five together.  I'll even buy the first round.  So call 805-588-3419 and ask for Dave
a.k.a. Misfit, former member of the Green and Purple Polka Dot Alliance (GAPPDA).
