                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in SHADOWSPIRE since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Woof!  THE MONGOLOIDS II 
were a bunch of dogs after KELLUMBO'S KIDS got through with 'em!  3rd ain't so sweet 
as 1st!  Looking for a good fight, confident, skilled, tough opponents.  Well don't 
look at WARMASTERS, cause they dropped by 18.  It seems so recently people were 
saying UNHOLY KNIGHTS was washed up, finished.  But 4-1-0 moved them up 6.  I guess 
they're washed no more...  What's with '08 CHALLENGER?  He actually beat BIG LAKE 
OUTCASTS' SYE THE BEARDED, and walked away with 23 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at AMERICAN MUSCLE while they watched '08 CHALLENGER clobber SYE THE 
BEARDED.  He lost 22 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  
WARMASTERS' hatred of HOUSE OF HEARTS surfaced again as BRUTUS challenged 
SHADOWSPIRE's top dog.  BRUTUS was reminded on the sands why BLACK MARIA is 
Duelmaster.  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
KELLUMBO'S KIDS.  The bums at AMERICAN MUSCLE couldn't face the challenges from 
KELLUMBO'S KIDS!  No excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling of being the most 
challenged warrior, GIGI DIVINE!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt 
you.  NIGHTBANE expects the easy win by going 40 points down.  PINKY will find this a 
hard lesson!  NIGHTBANE won victory over PINKY.  KELLUMBO'S KIDS calls this fighting? 
In my day...  Taunt your opponent GRACCHUS!  That was my lucky charm when I was 
unfairly challenged.  (and by 23 points!)  DESIREE should have an easy win.  I have 
to get this off my chest.  What a low dog, DESIREE!  She can't set herself up in a 
real match.  I was sorry to see GRACCHUS lose.  Fighting is a better craft than 
farming, PLASMA CUTTER, but you have to pay your dues.  Being challenged by WILHELM, 
21 points above you, is dues.  WILHELM left the match looking worse than when he went 
in, after PLASMA CUTTER, with a 12-11-0, walked all over him.  VILE RAT expects the 
easy win by going 28 points down.  H.P. LOVECRAFT will find this a hard lesson!  VILE 
RAT defeated H.P. LOVECRAFT.  I bet VILE RAT could beat two-year-olds, too.  Well, 
LITERATE LOONS knows who to set their sights on.  Maybe FURRY FURY's KRAZED KOALA is 
one of those gals who likes pain, or something.  That's what she'll get next week, 
after challenging up 26 to '70 CHARGER R/T.  KRAZED KOALA did pretty good last week 
in beating '70 CHARGER R/T to get 22 points.  Why did '70 CHARGER R/T lose, you ask?  
Simple:  she wasn't good enough.  BUGBEAR of MONSTER MANUAL knows how to pick 'em.  
He challenged GREGORR of WARMASTERS who is up by 21.  Now was this a wise move?  
BUGBEAR perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he overcame GREGORR and ended up 
with 33 recognition points.   
     Warriors of SHADOWSPIRE unite.  You have only your games to lose!  REMEDIAL 
looked pretty sick and surprised when he learned GOONSWARM is sending him to the Dark 
Arena!  Whadd'he expect with a 6-6-2?  Sending a warrior to the Dark Arena reminds 
the others they'd better shape up.  Tough beans, WAR PIG.  That's what a 4-7-0 gets 
you.  P.G. WODEHOUSE of LITERATE LOONS didn't know when to quit.  When you've got a 
8-13-1, that's a good sign.  Now he's dead.  Someone told BILI that LA PENTARCHIE 
never Bloodfeuded, that he'd have an easy kill.  Well, I'm sure whoever misled you is 
right sorry.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To 
die so young, so gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
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, I have been silented one turn by the ominous concurrence of losses, deaths, and
lost turns... -- Le Pentarque (still waiting for the turn 54 !!)

Congrats for the bunch of immortals, and good luck to our dear head team with the
rookies!  May they carry a lot of shields!  I am trying to smile even in those
days... but our beloved overachiever Rat-Loving Cat is leaving after some fights
showing he was running out of luck, so we see him getting his immortality with mixed
feelings.  He had  splendid favorites however, so he could be played in the big pool.

Good luck to all the Rats! -- Rat-Loving Cat.
P.S.  Nice fight, Brutus, you deserve your name!  I almost enjoyed this.

Dead Sexy, Overkill and friends, you look like a nice bunch of friendly characters,
but I'm not sure I will enjoy getting steam-rolled by each of you... let's just sa
<cut off by Hal>

Dear Aggression Inc., I sure enjoyed almost handing the victory to the cute Dead
Sexy, but I found Overkill a little rude, so Im not sure I really want to meet all
the team... -- Your friend Average Joe

Angel Heart -- No offense, just trying to keep ABs off my partner's TPs -- Dominatrix

'69 Stingray -- Damn you're big.  Gonna try that again tweaking my strat just a tad
to see how it works out. -- Grath

'08 Challenger -- Bah! -- Atar

Killer Smile -- I am sorry, what was that?  I couldn't hear you with all the blood
and dirt in your mouth. -- Balor

The Director -- Why don't you mind your own business, before someone minds it for
you? -- Tripwire

Galway and Celtic Pride -- Hang in there.  There are those that are willing to offer
assistance if desired. -- Spirewolf and Guild

Ross -- That was an interesting choice of challenges.  You are welcome to keep
attempting that one if you wish. -- Lord Exeter

Marathon -- Hang in there kid.  This game isn't a sprint, it's a ... marathon.  I'll
bet you didn't see that one coming. -- Attila

Nightbane -- I can't believe I lost that one!  I had 11 minutes and all you did was
stand there!  How could I lose!  That is SO embarrassing!  Unless, of course, you had
a 40FE advantage or some such thing.  Yeah, that was a tough one for you, wasn't it?
But just think, it was defeating me that finally proved to the commission that you
are worthy of the Isle.  You're welcome.  And good riddance. -- St. George

Rat in The Hat -- I am getting real tired of losing in the 4th min after I have
dominated the fight for the most part, Ben says I am better than my record indicates
but then he said that about Soulripper and he went home.  Good fight. -- Death's
Mistress

Bloody Jake you are -- Decapitaed Bill

Ting-Ting -- I am getting real tired of seeing you. -- Gentleben

Ting-Ting -- Want to try that again? -- Wyld Wytch

Greggor -- Or what? -- Wee Beastie

Remedial -- I take remedial bashing 101, what you takin? -- Pinky's Pig Boy

R30 -- I hope Rush Reborn decides to stick it out.  You might even consider starting
over with a new team and get some help with the roll-ups first.  I think you might
enjoy it more.  Either way good luck. -- Gentleben, MGR Unholy Knights

New Teams -- Welcome to Shadowspire! -- Unholy Knights

Grimm -- It's all part of the arena!  I've lost some early and I've lost some late!
Karch's death was a tough one since if he would have lived he would have graduated
and I would have had 3 of the 10 styles from this arena graduated! -- DeGotti

Bill the Bard -- Glad to see you have joined the revolution that is Shadowspire!  I
seem to recall your name from somewhere!  Oh, and I don't think Lord Xiang pays much
attention to his team here or anywhere for that matter much anymore! -- DeGotti

Clara -- I think you need better weapons!  Unlucky for you! -- Gigi

Slaughter Mouse 5 -- Thanks for not making another notch on your spear. -- Gerth

Angered Ape -- I think you got a little over confident and relaxed that last round.
-- Zandir

Melissa Joan -- Your magic didn't work on me. -- Dunnik

Klaxon -- Sorry for soiling your undefeated record. -- Urrim

Gurgle -- Arrgghh so close yet so far. -- Corrin

Sye The Bearded -- <grumble>  Damn Golems! -- Gerth

Baltaire -- Well fought sir.  I hope I give you more of a challenge next time. --
Zandir

Krazed Koala -- You didn't look too krazed too me. -- Dunnik

St. John Kitten -- You shouldn't curse the gods like that, it is bad juju. -- Urrim

Bugbear -- How the!  I must be cursed! -- Corrin

Congrats to all the recent invitees from all of the Clan Longbeard Guild.

Kellumbo -- Looks like we are the only two guilds left that have fought all 5
warriors every turn. -- Visionist

Rachel -- You should show off that cute figure!  But, I guess I'd let the scars heal
first. -- Hera

Rush Reborn -- Didn't know you were dead.  You certainly don't look it now. -- Bone
Shaman

Wedge -- Interesting result.  Wouldn't be surprised to see you again soon. --
Moonflower Lux

Maceo -- That was rather unpleasant. -- Duke Jupiter

Congrats! -- To all of the invitees. -- The Red Blades

M. King -- Don't let the seeming titular disparity fool you.  I am the emperor. --
Duke J.

Ogre Mage -- Who has stronger magic? -- Bone Shaman

Dead Sexy -- I know your manager has had Elephant's back.  When I saw the style
matchup it was just too sexy to stay away from. -- '71 Mach One

Grath -- Three words.  I am stupid.  There's a story behind that.  See you again? --
'69 Stingray

Atar -- Is your name short for A Target? -- '08

New teams and returning teams -- Welcome to Shadowspire. -- Elephant

Managers of Shadowspire -- We are moving in on 40 teams.  Let's push for 50+.  I've
been working on getting more managers here.  Anyone else to join me in recruiting?
Our records website is getting closer to happening. -- Elephant

Den -- Are you still out there?  We haven't heard from you in a while. -- Elephant

Black Maria -- Grats on the throne. -- American Muscle

Swine -- I won't get too locked in on that strat.  Actually, you should use that
strat on your if challenged. -- AM

The Director -- Did Confucius really say that?  I'm pretty sure I had a fortune
cookie that said the same thing. -- Elephant

     Quite likely.  Confucious wrote fortune cookies as his day job.

To all the graduates (sorry too many to list this go round) -- Congrats on your
invites.  Thanks for clearing the logjam up top. -- Elephant

All -- Thanks for the warm reception for Monster Manual into this growing arena.
Shadowspire looks like the Pro Bowl of Duel II.  I'll try to hold my own here and
keep learning from you guys. -- Deep Thought

E.M. Forster -- One shot to knock you down
                One shot to disarm you
                One shot to end the fight
                And let the infirmary bind you
                                          Ogre Mage

71 Mach One -- I'm guessing that was retribution for spanking 71 Demon so thoroughly?
Oh well, maybe I'll get you next time. -- Dead Sexy

Meda -- I didn't think you'd get up from that one!  That was a landmark fight, as it
was the first time I've ever had a weapon taken from me.  Congrats on your win, and
you can be sure that we WILL meet on the sands again! -- Punch Card

Wolfmother -- Hey dude, that was only the first one.  You can totally look forward to
3 or 4 more of those. -- Shotgun Wedding

favorable matchup style-wise.  Your attempt to defend yourself against my onslaught
was quite noble. -- Overkill

need ta have at it once more, eh? -- Killer Smile
