     The sun had barely crested the eastern horizon before Kayelbe threw open the
door to his stablehouse.  His warriors were already up and around as he entered.
Raeg Trops was preparing the morning meal by the fire.  Turning to his manager, he
offered a plate of eggs.
     "Good morning, boss.  Care for some breakfast?" the Ratani asked.
     "In a moment, Raeg.  First, I must speak with the group," came the reply.
Kayelbe pulled a chair from the table and placed his foot upon it, attempting an
authoritarian pose.  "Men, you are probably wondering why I sent Rawn to fight in the
Dark Arena this past week.  Well, as you all are aware, no warrior is above the rule.
Rawn was reckless outside the arena and, frankly, he wasn't living up to his
potential on the sands, either."
     "But he lasted three minutes with the Mountain Troll," interrupted Tavis Spyrl.
     A quick glare from the boss and the newest member of Daggers Deep shrank into
his chair.  Kayelbe kept his gaze fixed on the young Kannari warrior.  Spyrl had
arrived from Iaye, along with his brother Argin, just before last week's fights.
Kayelbe silently cursed his business associate, Barjin of Iaye.  He had indeed
followed through with the request for two new warriors, albeit a week too late.
Kayelbe felt that Tavis was the more prepared of the two, and had used him to fill
the spot briefly held by Garrick Scragg, known on the sands as the Caravan Guard.
Now, the elder Spyrl brother would step in to replace Rawn.
     "As I was saying," Kayelbe continued.  "Rawn was not fit to fight under the
Daggers Deep banner and he paid the price.  Now, this week we are going to try to
fight to our strengths.  I have prepared a list of acceptable challenges for each of
you."  Kayelbe passed around four sheets of parchment, one to each veteran.  "These
are your potential foes that I have chosen for you.  Study them, as I am sure the
commission will pair you up with one of them."
     Scragg crumpled his sheet up and threw it into the fireplace.  "Kennastone is
not on this list.  I will fight no other."  His voice was even timbered, but the rage
was noticeable.
     "Kennastone is not on our lists either," Yruf announced.  "Do you not want to
continue the Bloodfeud?  We are, by rule, allowed two more."
     "Kennastone was dealt with this past week.  I do not feel it is appropriate--"
Kayelbe was cut off.
     "APPROPRIATE?  He killed my son!  I will fight no other!" Scragg stood and
stepped to his manager.  The pair stood eye to eye for several moments before Kayelbe
relented.
     "Fine, Scragg.  I will submit your challenge as you wish.  I have no doubt that
Jekyll will prepare Kennastone to face you.  You will not find him such an easy
opponent this time around."
     "I care not.  I will not rest until my son's death is avenged."  With that,
Scragg reached for his staff and stepped out into the training yard.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

I used to take offense when people said the throne room had a rodent problem, but
then I realized it was meant as a compliment.  Of course, when they said the rodents
had a hygiene problem, I began to question if all of this praise was sincere.  In any
case, the throne room looks pretty much the same as The Mad Ratter had left it with
the black velvet painting of Managerr still on the wall.  As for my own addition, I
have placed Krazed Koala's head in a glass display case.  Not out of respect, but
because when we had it on a stick, it kept shedding.  On top of it is a maraca filled
with his teeth and ribs for when DMs are in a festive mood.  In regards to the
Shadowspire Codex, the diary for the revolving door of DMs, I'm adding my recipe for
killer nachos (hint: the secret ingredient is rabies) and the location of the bunker
where we keep Darque locked up (yes, we have never forgiven him for the Shadowspire
Yellow Press "Rodent goes down the sewer" headline in regards to The Mad Ratter's
loss to the seemingly less experienced Deadtear).  As we say at the Rodent den, take
care of your filth.

Rat in the Hat

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome SHADOWSPIRE.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  You know what they say 
about the herd of lions who studied a judge...  GOONSWARM moved up 11 places, to 5th. 
Who can explain it?  Not you, not me, not LETHAL FORMULA's opponents, after watching 
them shoot up the ranks from 21st to 9th.  You know what they say about the herd of 
lions who studied a judge...  MONSTER MANUAL moved up 11 places, to 13th.  Who can 
explain it?  Not you, not me, not NEVERQUEST's opponents, after watching them shoot 
up the ranks from 33rd to 22nd.  FURRY FURY bit the big one as they could not win.  
They dropped from 12th down to 26th!  Are you guy giving lessons or what?  Ever take 
one of those association tests?  You know, he says black, you say white.  Water-Lake, 
Sky-Blue. Try this:  Flop.  AGGRESSION INC!  Some people say I ramble too much, I 
don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well AMERICAN MUSCLE moved 
up 4, to 3rd.  A team with purpose!  A team with the skill to back up their boasts!  
Getting a 5-0-0 their first time out is CAPITAL CARTEL.  What's with '69 FAIRLANE 
COBRA?  He actually beat RAGNAROK'S WOLVES' JUNKYARD DOGMA, and walked away with 20 
more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at LA PENTARCHIE while they watched ST 
JOHN KITTEN clobber GERTH.  He lost 15 points and got bruised from objects thrown 
from the stands.  Another fighter (WILHELM 15-7-1) challenged another Duelmaster (RAT 
IN THE HAT 13-5-1).  Life goes on.  I'm sure SHADOWSPIRE is excited about WILHELM, 
the new Duelmaster from WARMASTERS.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I 
have...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team 
is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  SHADOWSPIRE thinks 
KELLUMBO'S KIDS and their 190-130-3 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give 
up...  Management must be dealin', as the boys at AMERICAN MUSCLE ain't reelin'!  
KELLUMBO'S KIDS' mad!  What do people see in HR?  Hers 3-0-0?  CORPORATE IDIOTS ain't 
talkin', but she's got 37 points.  Keep challenging up 26 points, '08 CHALLENGER, and 
I won't have to write about you much longer.  DUNNIK always accepts those kind of 
challenges...  '08 CHALLENGER defeated DUNNIK ('08 CHALLENGER getting 27 points, 
too!)--Ooh baby!  Now dat I likes!  Maybe UNHOLY KNIGHTS' WEE BEASTIE is one of those 
gals who likes pain, or something.  That's what she'll get next week, after 
challenging up 35 to SLAUGHTER MOUSE 5.  Who knows what was running through WEE 
BEASTIE's head, but SLAUGHTER MOUSE 5 rearranged it for her.  How soon will WEE 
BEASTIE make a challenge like that again?  I hate going to the effort of writing 
about the kind of fights that JOEY gets in.  He fights people like DEVON, 12 points 
below.  I thought JOEY showed great skill and promise when he bested DEVON.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Sending a warrior to the Dark Arena reminds the 
others they'd better shape up.  Tough beans, DEAD SEXY.  That's what a 5-9-1 gets 
you.  JUNKYARD DOGMA, with his forgettable 4-5-2,  was killed by '69 FAIRLANE COBRA 
in a forgettable match.  RAGNAROK'S WOLVES didn't seem to mind very much.  NOCTRYN 
was plum wore out after MR BLUE pounded 'im silly in a Bloodfeud.  LETHAL FORMULA'll 
have to get a little better before going after MR BLUE again!  Is it my imagination, 
or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  Are 
you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen
