                             Notes from the arena champ.

I'm back to write another column!  As expected, the Kellumbo scum appeared to have
used their avoids.  Unfortunate, but not unexpected.  Those avoids opened the door
for Horse to get his challenge in on me.  I guess he saw the style matchup and
thought he could take me.  Ha!  Think again!  For I, having learned from watching
others do crazy things, have learned to think outside the box!  And thus the style
matchup worked in my favor!  Last turn anyway.  Nice try Horse, perhaps the next
Duelmaster will let you try again.

I would like to offer some encouragement to Sponge Bath.  Although your record is not
great, you deserve the durability award as the last remaining warrior to have fought
every turn this arena has been in existence.  How long can it last?  At this point
you are picking up political points.  It won't be long until everyone is second
generation.  I myself am second generation as I was the replacement when one of the
original Guild members, Anvil Ironfist, graduated.  Let the third generation begin
under Sponge Bath's watchful eye!  Hmmm... that sounds a bit creepy, doesn't it?  

And finally, what to leave as memento of my final turn?  A bit of horse hair seems
too obvious.  Plus, it wouldn't actually come from Horse as the commission doesn't
let you take a piece of your fallen opponent.  That might get a bit gruesome.
Perhaps a dagger--a symbol of the need for speed, dexterity and pin-point accuracy?
I have a nice one that has a moon rising over a mountain (think Spire) engraved on
the hilt.  That should do nicely.

Proud to be your Duelmaster, 
Lord Protector Balliol Blackmoon

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly SHADOWSPIRE games.  Former top team CLAN LONGBEARD was 
unseated this week as WARMASTERS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with 
a 3-2-0 record for the round.  I have begun to suspect trickery on the part of THE 
MONGOLOIDS II.  How else weeks like this one's 4-1-0?  How else the sudden move to 
7th team?  The proverbial rising comet can only hope to compare with AGGRESSION INC's 
team record!  A 4-1-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 8th place ranking.  My tutors 
were fond of telling me that the higher you rise the harder you fall.  This week 
FURRY FURY went 1-4-0 and fell 11 notches into 16th!  My praise to RODENT CLAN for 
their 3-1-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving 
of notice!  WILHELM caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he 
skillfully bested PLASMA CUTTER and was awarded 20 points in recognition.  In one of 
the week's more notable duels, WILHELM put down PLASMA CUTTER, causing him to lose 17 
points of recognition in the process.  This time out DJAIMZ made its bid for the 
throne as it challenged BALLIOL BLACKMOON in an all out contest of skill for 
possession of the title!  The city has turned out in honor of DJAIMZ, for with its 
arena victory it may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  Heed this!  
A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city shall 
perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     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.  Apparently the stalwarts of LA PENTARCHIE are catching the bulk 
of jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty 
fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  '69 STINGRAY take warning!  
You have more than a few enemies in SHADOWSPIRE.  Give '68 ROAD RUNNER credit for his 
courage.  Did you note how he challenged GRATH despite the 30 point difference in 
their rankings?  6 points of newly earned recognition and a dose of my admiration is 
what '68 ROAD RUNNER must now weigh against the defeat which resulted.  For some 
warriors honor is not important--only empty victory.  See, gladiators, how GROWLER of 
BATTLE GRUNTS challenged down 18 points to CROQUE_MORT.  Surprising everyone, 
CROQUE_MORT subdued GROWLER, earning 20 points of recognition in the process!  A 
knave's just desserts are the sweetest victory.  A match that raised a few eyebrows 
at the games this week, it seems that HORSE posted a challenge against the more 
highly recognized '69 STINGRAY.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand HORSE was 
bested by '69 STINGRAY.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.  I can 
not but mention with disdain the name of DEADTEAR who this week posted a challenge to 
a warrior a full 9 points below in the rankings.  I thought DEADTEAR showed great 
skill and promise when he bested GRACCHUS.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big 
deal!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  DOMINATRIX must hold silent, for this week she was humbled in the 
arena by a successful Bloodfeud won by GIGI DIVINE of CULT OF BACCHUS.  Hail GIGI 
DIVINE for thy victory!  Many townsmen have begin to remark over the fact that after 
one more round of duels THE DRAUGS' Bloodfeud against WIMPY will have expired.  Dark 
alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is only the 
brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in SHADOWSPIRE as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till 
next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Grats to the Clan, the Guild and the Warmasters!  They owned the day! -- Le
Pentarque.

Should I start DAing more?  I'm getting worried when I see that team.  Each victory
is soo precious now.  That stand on top was awfully short this time.

Don't lose your temper, Elephant, many managers are standing on your side of the
fence.

Nice parry blasting, Djohey! -- Rat-Loving Cat

Thanks, Koala... we will probably meet again after the scheduled wiping out of the
scums. -- St John Kitten.

The Director and Opinicus -- I never once asked for my alliance help.  I don't feel I
have egg on my face about anything.  In my eyes it's still 14-5 and will continue on
as long as it takes until one of us quits.  There were no "rules" about anything.  I
continue to challenge his warriors every single turn.  They won't get through 90% of
the time because of his avoiding, but hey I will continue to challenge anyway. --
Tripwire

Elephant -- WTF are you talking about?  I never quit, I also would never ask for help
from my alliance mates.  Ever.  And they all know that as you do I am sure.  I didn't
know DK was going to post what he did.  He doesn't tell me everything he is going to
do.  I do know that most in my alliance simply don't like your manager in 81.  Just
because someone else is challenging your warriors what does that have to do with the
fights between yours and mine?  I never quit anything.  Declare your victory all you
want, if you want to quit just say so.  14-5 and counting. -- Tripwire

Wee Beastie -- Well, the second go-around was a wee bit worse for me.  It was a nice
win for you.  Wee shall have to see if I want to come back and try again. --
Spirewolf

Kids -- I didn't challenge Weetoddidben.  I didn't try to kill him.  He was just
there and it sort of happened.  Now I'm sure you want to do the reasonable and
honorable thing and let the new guy get his shot to bloodfeud--to be fair--so I look
forward to the bloodfeud next turn.  I'm sure a proud team like yours wouldn't want
people talking behind your back about a cowardly bloodfeud on a poor initiate with a
30 win warrior.  No, you're much to proud and honorable for that. -- St. George, who
is also curious about the meaning of that name.

Pig Boy -- I suspect we will do that again, and it will end differently. -- Lord
Exeter

Abomination -- Maybe it isn't in your book, but I consider that sort of thing a down
challenge.  I still should have won, and I will next time, but we won't forget which
direction you challenge. -- Attila

Tripwire -- I have to say that the fight between Karch and Dominatrix was a great
back and forth battle! I was surprised to see Karch die but so is the life of a
warrior! -- DeGotti

Well one runnable replacement and one only good for using as toilet paper! -- DeGotti

Looks as tho things are going to be getting a bit more lively around here the next
few months! -- DeGotti

Brain -- Even though I won, you impressed me. -- Gerth

Bahbi -- You shouldn't gloat till you have finished off your opponent. -- Zandir

Livia -- Not a very fair matchup for your first fight. -- Dunnik

Ting-Ting -- I spoke too soon and Tang'd when I should have Ting'd. -- Urrim

GiGi Divine -- Why you sneaky <censored> orc.  That was my favorite scimitar you
broke. -- Gerth

     Cheap goods.

Gaulix -- I must be the luckiest Rirorni in all of Shadowspire. -- Zandir

Dead Sexy -- Looks like I did a lot better with the 2nd one. -- Dunnik

Philip K. Dick -- Thank the gods I woke up in the 4th minute. -- Urrim

Wedge -- Back and forth, either one of us could have won that one. Well fought. --
Corrin

'69 Stingray -- Well, you're faster than I anticipated.  I thought my experience
advantage would be more than enough to beat you.  Guess I was wrong.  Well fought! --
Brutus

Wimpy -- I appreciate your moxy and grit.  Despite losing twice before, you gave it a
third try.  It was a good effort and I respect that, but the results were the same.
Better luck next time I! -- Gracchus

Philanthropists -- When I left the arena sands, Boosatch was still alive.  Are you
sure the doctor didn't kill him because I suspect that I'm being framed!  Either way,
sorry about your loss. -- Liberius

     Probably.  The Infirmary's been having trouble with its malpractice insurance.

Well look at that, Balliol has held the throne.  Congratulations once again! --
Vanek, Manager of Warmasters

Clan Longbeard -- Wow, 13-2-0.  Pretty impressive!  I thought my 11-4-2 would be good
enough to hold the top spot.  Guess not.  Maybe I can steal it from you on turn 54?
I guess we'll have to see. -- Vanek

Attila & Zandir -- Luck?  There was no luck involved, it is simply a matter of
physics.  Haven't you guys ever played rock, paper, scissors before?  On the arena
sands big weapon always beats little weapon, right?  I came ready to fight with my
weapon while you guys came prepared to open envelopes or something.  Don't blame me!
-- Gregorr

     They have to blame somebody.

Killer Smile -- You got lucky, you lucky...well I don't know what you are but you are
lucky...errr (stomps and cursing ensue edited for the faint at heart)...and that's
what I think of you. -- Death's Mistress

Sledge -- Let's go over this one more time, I hit you, you go down not "turn it
around," got it, next time... -- Decatpitated Bill

Bili -- I thought you had that one, not bad, not bad at all.  Remind me to keep an
eye on you. -- Wyld Wytch

Spirewolf -- You may be the BIGGER Beast, but I'm am the BETTER Beast. -- Wee Beastie
P.S.  Thanks for the skills!!

Lord Exit--er Stage Left -- Dat was fun, huh-uh, uhhh, what's for lunch im so ungry.
-- Pinky's Pig Boy

Balliol Blackmon -- Hope you have a great time on the Isle, congrats and kudos. --
Gentleben

Clan Longbeard -- Congrats on the current top team, it appears to be a well deserved
and difficult to receive award in this arena, well done. -- Unholy Knights

Dominatrix -- Nice kill at the top, I hope you leave soon, nothing personal you see,
I just don't want you there when I get my people up there. -- Gentleben

Uncharterd Teams -- We leave you to battle amongst each other for top honors, we will
be chartered by  the time you read this. -- the now chartered Unholy Knights

Opinicus and The Director -- I agree, of course. At least we know the answer to the
question of peeing standing up or sitting down. -- Elephant

Only a coward picks a fight then hides behind her friends.

Gerth -- '67 isn't with us anymore but if he was, I'd say he'd have to agree with
you. -- American Muscle

Vanek -- Thanks.  Went from 69 to to 36 but who's counting. -- Elephant

Did I mention what a cowardly act it is to pick a fight and then hide behind your
friends?

Grimm -- So are you telling me to run dodge and response? -- Elephant

Fox -- We just got a huge bail out from the government.  You should see an
improvement in our quality. -- American Muscle

Brutus -- I bet you didn't realize girls hit that hard did you.  I hope I didn't
leave a permanent mark. -- '69 Stingray

Hakkon -- I guess I ran out of gas.  Not sure my weapon selection was correct but
what can you do? -- '08 Challenger

SM5 -- I thought we were friends.  If you do challenge me again, all I ask is that
you teach me a little better next time. -- '70 R/T

Kanodraug -- Wow, I came out of that with a headache and a victory.  Maybe next time?
-- '68 Road Runner

Trip -- Your response leads me to believe you're a size 10.  Indimar has assured me
your dress will be ready in time for the Shadowspire's Homecoming.  You're a lock to
be crowned queen.  Guess you can chalk up another award for the Iron Council.  Now go
do wh  <Cut off by some golem>

Year of the Cat -- While you may be a sensible guy, you certainly aren't sensitive.
My backside still aches where you broke your foot off in it! -- Punch Card, with a
pain in his... well, you know where

Ross -- Eh, you'll do.  I certainly won't say you're the better warrior, though.
Just a little luckier. -- Punch Card, an unlucky guy

Dunnik -- Well, that certainly was...abrupt.  Glad that's over. -- Dead Sexy

Klaxon -- Whoa, dude.  You are sooo totally lame.  I mean, what is the DEAL, right?
You just sit there and do nothing!  That's not very fun, man.  If you can't at least
make it interesting, then what's the freakin' point? -- Shotgun Wedding

Klaxon -- Keep it coming.  Eventually, our challenge will get through. -- The
Director

Brain -- Ok, here's what I remember.  I walked into the arena, and I was getting
ready for someone to say "Go," the next thing I know, I'm waking up on my back.  You
do know you're supposed to wait for someonte to say "GO," right? -- Overkill

Opinicus -- 2 to 1.  I haven't had to remove my shoes just yet. -- The Director

Death's Mistress -- Sorry love, I din't wanna fightcha, but the Director, he said I
had to do it.  I thought ya had that one, I did.  Thankee fer the skills! -- Killer
Smile

Gentleben -- I thought I had given your stable an unintentional win with that
challenge for a couple of minutes.  I'm certainly glad the Killer Smile pulled off
that win, as it ended up being the only one we got.  If it's any consolation to her,
tell Death's Mistress that her loss saved Killer Smile from the Dark Arena. -- The
Director
