                             Notes from the arena champ.

     First, my apologies to you all for not having a DM column last turn.  It is too
great an honor to sit upon the throne of Shadowspire to let it go by without even
posting an acknowledgement of the event.  I did begin one but Otis had us running
around working on projects for who knows what.
     Now down to business. I was very surprised that my fight with Martin Luther
turned out to be the title bout after Iron Smith departed.  Really didn't see that
coming. Then to top it off I go and defend it against the recently immortalized
Corrin.  From what Otis tells me the outcome wasn't that much of an upset.  I guess
Visionist kinda spilled the beans on what type of warrior Corrin really was.  With
his size and record, though, he was a pretty intimidating dude at first.
     I am only the second DM from this stable and by holding on to the top spot I
have now held the throne more turns than any other Mongoloid has.  Sounds impressive
when you say it like that.  But Djaimz only had the throne for one turn before
getting his invite.  With my invite this turn I become the third Lord Protector from
the Mongoloids II.  Joining the aforementioned Djaimz and Djohey Djr.  I am hoping to
have a couple more join me soon but they are taking thier sweet time in getting up
here.
     Before I turn it over to Otis, I must leave something on the throne as is the
tradition here. I leave two pieces of humble pie.  The first first for initially
granting me the title when it was vacated by a departing LP.  The second for allowing
me to defend the title despite not honoring it by posting a DM column.  I know you re
supposed to eat humble pie, but then there wouldn't be anything to leave.  Okay,
boss, all yours...

Bili

Like all of my warriors here in Shadowspire, Bili took a long time to come into his
own.  He pretty much did it on his own as well, as I have been somewhat of an
absentee manager during most of his career.  When I started paying more attention
here and helped Bili tweak a few things, it really started clicking and we thought we
had his favorites nailed.  Turns out we were way off.  Since he is off to a life as
an eternal fisherman here are his stats 15-5-13-17-11-12-11 AD Ex Init, Ex Rip, AD Ex
Att, and AD Ex Dec, LO/VL GA, learns Init.  Far cry from what I thought were his
faves.  But hey we got him winning and got him outta here.  Now to work on Bahbi.

Otis

                                      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.  You know what they say 
about the herd of lions who studied a judge...  DRAGONBANE GUILD moved up 12 places, 
to 2nd.  Phhbltt!  Too much drinking and too little dodging gave FURRY FURY a 1-4-0!  
I got a good laugh out of it!  OTTO'S DINER showed SHADOWSPIRE what they were made of 
as they fought with a vengeance to walk off with 4-1-0.  What's with XORN?  He 
actually beat CLAN LONGBEARD's GERTH, and walked away with 23 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at WARMASTERS.  LIBERIUS lost 33 points to ATTILA KEENBLADE.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe LIBERIUS will provide more easy wins...  DARQUE 
AGES' hatred of THE MONGOLOIDS II surfaced again as ANSELM challenged SHADOWSPIRE's 
top dog.  ANSELM was reminded on the sands why BILI is Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it be 
nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses 
of convicted prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was SUPERIOR FORCES NT.  In my day, no team with a 15-15-0 would 
scare me off!  What's the problem, JUNGLELAND?  How well I know the feeling of being 
the most challenged warrior, LIAM O'FLAHERTY!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come 
back to haunt you.  Maybe WARMASTERS' VIRIDIO is one of those guys who likes pain, or 
something.  That's what he'll get next week, after challenging up 29 to REGINA 
SPECTRE.  Sometimes what you expect to do (like in the fights) doesn't expect to turn 
out like you thought.  VIRIDIO won victory over REGINA SPECTRE.  It don't make sense. 
OUTLAW PETE of JUNGLELAND knows how to pick 'em.  He challenged BLUE MARBLE of 
DRAGONBANE GUILD who is up by 21.  Now was this a wise move?  OUTLAW PETE perhaps got 
his just desserts, seeing as he won victory over BLUE MARBLE and ended up with 47 
recognition points.  I hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights 
that GREGORR gets in.  He fights people like PHILIP K. DICK, 8 points below.  I 
thought GREGORR showed great skill and promise when he bested PHILIP K. DICK.  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, DRAS.  That's what a 4-8-0 gets you.  
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.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

DK -- I posted only nine ads last time, limiting the production to allow you to
succeed and attain excellence.  Uh, where were you? -- Agent, Capital Cartel
(Presuming he will have to post even fewer to allow Detective Kellumbo a fair
chance.)

     Don't you dare!

The Mongoloids -- WOW!  Nice point gain, Studs!  AND a Duelmaster?  Consider us to be
avoiding. -- Agent, Capital Cartel (Feeling very jealous)

Serafin Gawain -- I STILL don't have any cards! -- Flop Shot, Capital Cartel

Managerr -- But I guess I don't have to have the cards, I can just bluff?  It was my
great pleasure to match with your ChupucaSuperior and to tag his cherry. -- Flop
Shot, Capital Cartel

Grobbulus -- I was very, very surprised and lucky to pull that off.  Yes! -- Book
Mark, Capital Cartel

Dylan Ryder -- I think I just sucked you in for all you are worth. -- Limp In,
Capital Cartel

Brentni -- See, that's what happens when your Manager doesn't write the volume of
personals he needs to.  Tsk, tsk, tsk. -- Head Band, Capital Cartel

Ornery Ocelot -- I was feeling pretty darn ornery myself. -- Low And Away, Flop Shot

Gentleben -- Talk about taking the proverbial nosedive.  How low can you go? -- DK

Agent -- Is there no slowing you down? -- DK

LP -- Nice challenge.  I avoided, of course, but that's the way it goes sometimes. --
Latrice

Grimm -- Lucky win, again. -- DK

So, now that we are halfway through the year of no downchallenging, I am curious how
the arena likes it?  Are things more boring?  Since I stopped DCing, the arena has
dwindled.  Maybe we need a stronger "bad guy" presence in the arena.  What do you all
think?  I'll certainly hold up my end of the year, but when the year is over, what
would people prefer? -- Kellumbo

Otis -- Great job on the throne and top team on the move.  Way to represent the IC!
-- DK

All -- Welcome the newest crappy warrior!  Colten!  Yay! -- Tripwire

Venisha -- That was embarassing.  I am lucky to still be fighting, Tripwire is
showing mercy for some reason. -- Arioch

Zith -- Your manager keeps trying my warriors.  It's the only wins I get!  So keep at
it! -- Zevran

Midnight Sun -- Man alive, am I terrible or what?! -- Lariton

Book Mark -- Jeez!  I was using that stick pretty well.  Not that time, nice job sir!
-- Grobbulus

Bili!  Shame on you!  Where is your column?  We gave you so many victories... do your
part now! -- Le Pentarque

Talking about well-known warriors... I would like to make clear that I DON'T want ANY
of my guys to meet AGAIN Gerth... 8 times is enough, Gerth is better than most of my
warriors, I know that now... don't want to check it once more. -- LP

Against the Kitten, entering the arena, the great, the mighty LORD....  Nooooooooo...
not him again!!!  Ahhhhhahahah... flee in terror... my little cat... nooo.... EXETER!
Ten secs later, the kitten was still alive, but his manager a little depressed.

I guess Latrice was trying something hot. I kinda anticipated that. Could have worked
though! -- Year OTCat

Nicely done, Agent.  We know that you can win... what about trying to lose a few now?
To trap the bookmakers? -- LP

Maddened Meerkat -- You gals sure are a lot cuter on "Meerkat Theater" on National
Geographics and they don't seem to be so mad either.  Well fought and I think I may
be fighting by candle light by the time you read this. -- Dras

Elthor -- You got lucky, I was just about to "Bring the Pain" when you got that last
lucky shot in. -- Brand

Heatwave -- I love your chest!  I love the way it cracks when I tap on it. -- Duchess
of Erat

Musse Pigg -- Ham, anybody? -- Ctuchik

Zevram -- Well fought and good-bye. -- Zith 

Viridio -- I was actually going to say last time, "...but I bet you match up a lot
better with Ray."  But, I figured you could find that out yourself. -- K.C.

Walli -- Hey, at least you're not dead.  Better luck on your other BF. -- Selena
Spectre

Titus -- That was fun to read.  You know, up to a point. -- Serafin

Sarah James -- Who's your mama? -- Regina

Tom Joad -- I had a feeling that would work out. -- Kid Charlemagne

Bili and Gerth -- Congrats on the invites. -- The Red Blades

Gregorr -- I hope the skills serve you well in the future. -- Gerth

Year of the Cat -- I thought I heard someone yell duck. -- Corrin

Widow Faerlina -- I am sorry for your personal loss, but that doesn't mean I am going
to let you win. -- Fimnar

Lariton -- I am finally getting the hang of this dueling stuff. -- Elthor

Holly Windstalker -- I heard a rumor that you are were dead and your ghost was
roaming around in the woods. -- Heinrik

Iron Smith, Lord Exeter, and Gracchus -- Clan Longbeard salute you on your
graduation.

St John Kitten -- Arghhhhh! -- Gerth

Kimbhulee - Well fought sir dwarf. - Fimnar

Sarah James -- Just like a women to go straight for the head and the groin. -- Elthor

Fippy Darkpaw -- Okay, I admit it I suck. -- Heinrik

Liberius -- How did we even get matched up?  Did someone think that was even.  Not
that I mind getting matched up against more experienced warriors, but I can do
without the fights vs guys with 3 kills. -- Kimbhulee

9 February 10
All -- I know you all thought the old Wiz that is Fiz went off to die somewhere.
Well, I didn't.  Now I'm back to befuddle and frustrate you with my senseless
ramblings.  I look forward to reconnecting with all my old friends and enemies alike.
-- Fizban the Famous
