*By default, our first Duelmaster Alberta Clipper would hold the title of youngest
DM.  However, since Shadowspire was a new arena, awarding the title to the first DM
would be flaky and questionable at best.  So, for youngest DM consideration, the SYP
Editor has chosen Turn 20 and beyond.  The reasons are simple:  1) Shadowspire's
first graduates were invited on Turn 20; 2) Anyone attaining the throne with 10 FE or
less would be facing a much more experienced arena; 3) I'm the Editor of the SYP.

There you go ladies, gentlemen, and Shadowspire managers!  Records are made to be
broken, so keep your swords sharp and your armor in good repair.  You never know when
the SYP will be compiling a meaningless, VH1-esque type list for your reading
enjoyment.  And you want to be on it?!  Of course you do!!!

P.S.  Not sure what next cycle's subject will be, so if you have any ideas for a
spotlight let me know.

NOTICE TO SUBMITTERS:  Ideas that include me shutting up and/or being mauled by angry
badgers with noticeable under-bites will be rejected!  You know who you are, stop
sending me diplos!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, SHADOWSPIRE?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  With any luck, I can sneak into The 
Warty Toad and join WARMASTERS' celebration over their good record this turn.  5th 
place, not bad.  If this keeps up, WOODY'S WORKSHOP, you'll have to shine swords 
instead of use them.  A drop of 8 in the rankings?  Gee, I'm impressed, a 4-0-0 is 
nice, but don't get cocky, FUCHI OWNED, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are 
proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see PO'D PANDA win a fight and 
gain 27 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, MCKAMY beat THUNDERSAW and THUNDERSAW lost 15 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Looks like SHADOWSPIRE has some guts at least, 
POWDER HOUND the Duelmaster was this turn's most-challenged warrior.  FLOR challenged 
SHADOWSPIRE's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And if variety is the spice of 
life, SHADOWSPIRE may be getting bland, as POWDER HOUND stays top dog in the city.  
Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys 
win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
KELLUMBO'S KIDS, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided 
team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And who led the way in this mass 
act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was DRAGONBANE GUILD.  Ha ha ha 
ha!  I notice LLUD challenging down 19 points to fight NIGHTBANE, CLAN LONGBEARD 
doubtless has some rotten excuse for such an insult to honor.  And sorry to say, LLUD 
won victory over NIGHTBANE, leaving a bad feeling with the crowd.  I think exploitive 
snob is the term I'm looking for.  GRATH was challenged by one of LA PENTARCHIE's 
warriors this turn, with RAT-LOVING CAT having a lead of 38 points going into the 
fight.  Question now is, will SHADOWSPIRE accept this sort of tacky behavior?  
RAT-LOVING CAT beating GRATH.  The insult, the....yech!  Now look at this.  '70 
SUPERBIRD challenged down 22 against OF WOLF AND MAN's DEXTER.  What a weasel!  And 
golly gee, '70 SUPERBIRD beat DEXTER.  Aren't we all surprised and impressed?  I 
suspect either a 21 will or a 21 ego on this one, but THE CLAPPER has challenged up 
by 46 in an attempt against FELIX.  Well, ok, the upstart knave (where've I heard 
that before?) won this match and gained 26 points to boot!  Ha ha ha, FELIX.  I guess 
I can give a little credit to PETRARCH of DARQUE AGES for challenging up by 23 to 
DOMINATRIX.  PETRARCH lost to get 41 points of recognition.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Let's see, 6-4-0.  Pretty good record for 
a living warrior.  A sad one though, for a dead one.  Such is the case for ALICE of 
LA PENTARCHIE.  Tsk.  Ya gotta go sometime, and DRILL PRESS' time was this time.  
Hmmm, not a bad fighter, had he lived... (what?  me pity?).  Honor is like a 
chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless 
rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the SHADOWSPIRE arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of SHADOWSPIRE.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see 
the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Dexter -- I wasn't that shocked.  Seems to be par for the course that is my D2
career.  I have moments, brief moments mind you, of brilliance, followed by under
achievement and stagnation. -- Chaucer
P.S.  I long gave up on a winning record.  My solitary goal is simply survival at
this point.

Karch -- Well, we sent someone to bloodfeud, but apparently the Commission did not
think too highly of our challenge.  We will try to remedy it this coming turn. --
Darque Ages

Elephant -- It is 8-5 in your favor since I started in the arena on turn 4.  I even
counted the two fights before we started our spat.  I had actually stopped paying
attention after you avoided me.  I will start paying attention once again since you
brought it up -- Tripwire

Angrendraug -- One bloodfeud down, three to go.  What?  You won't be here?!  Oh, now
this is a foul time to graduate!  Once more, I guess.  At least Alanna has been
avenged. -- Gron

Chromian -- Thought you could win with a 37-10 FE advantage?  I guess it worked.  I'm
shocked. -- Balliol

Horse -- I do like having the experience edge.  Nice try, Hoss. -- Baron Stonewall

Guthuater -- What kind of a first time match up was that!?  Nice win and good luck as
long as it is against someone else. -- Maharion

e.e.cummings -- I have wanted to get back into the CCs for awhile now, so I thank you
for your services.  The victory was appreciated. -- Hardrada

Powder Hound -- You too good to say something in the DM column or what? -- DeGotti

I guess we did a bit too much celebrating!  2-3 turn and knocked off the Current Top
Team spot!  Oh well, I knew it wouldn't last forever! -- DeGotti

SYP -- I hope I can add two more graduates to that list soon.  Possibly the first PL
and the last remaining original warrior from squad! -- DeGotti

Ack!  Powder Hound doesn't like cats but he shouldn't have beaten me; he is not
writing his dm word!  Shame on him! -- Rat-Loving Cat

Good luck to all the new immortals.  Angrendraug is the second really good OTP raised
in our beautiful city! -- Le Pentarque

The youngsters finally had a good turn...a nice way to start the summer holidays.
Let's get some sun. -- Le Pentarque

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).
