                             Notes from the arena champ.

  Another edition of "As the Guildhouse Turns" -- The Difficult Life of an Initiate

     Attila Keenblade, Duelmaster of Shadowspire, leaned back on the bench at the
Eagle and Child Tavern.  As he wrapped his arms around the young ladies on his left
and right, he glanced at his guild-mate, Blue Marble.  "Where's Spirewolf?  He was
supposed to be here by now."
     "Wolf?  Don't know.  Never know."
     "Hmm... yeah.  He said he'd be here, so he'll get here I guess.  In the 
meantime...."  And with that he decided to give the ladies a bit more attention than
they had been getting before.
     Blue Marble continued to sit there like the rock he was named after.  After
several minutes and quite a few girlish giggles, the formerly absent, well-built,
basher approached the table, followed by his smaller teammate, Azaghal.  "I don't
care if I am still technically an initiate, Wolf!  I'm a challenger Init AND I have
12 fights experience now!  I do not have to do any more of your silly old stunts
anymore!  Cyril can do those!"
     Attila looked up and smiled.  "Azzy, was the Wolf late because he's been hazing
the rookies again?  You never give up, do you, Wolf?"
     The former Duelmaster failed completely as he attempted to feign a look of
shocked, pure innocence.  He quickly gave it up and grinned.  "Well, somebody has to
teach these kids to respect their elders and the Guildhouse!  And this little kid
here seems to think he's graduated to the big leagues already.  Really, Attila,
should we be letting little Azaghal off that easily?"
     Azaghal's look of belligerence relaxed just a bit when Attila smiled.  "Come on
Wolf, he's already been in the adepts, and you heard him about the FE.  Once you get
past 10 you have earned your scars.  Leave him alone."  He paused to look at Azaghal,
but then looked quizzically back towards the Wolf.  "And just what did you do to poor
Cyril?  Wasn't it enough that you made him carry a 'Zena Warrior-Princess' backpack
to the fights last week?"
     "A backpack!  That hardly even counts," Azaghal exclaimed, "when he was still
pulling this crap on me..."
    "Oh, calm down, Azzy, I'll leave you alone," Spirewolf snapped.  "Well, it really
isn't much.  It isn't like the stuff that Gron and Baron Stonewall used to pull on
us.  Remember that, don't you?"
    Attila just shook his head and smiled weakly.  "Oh yeah, who can forget it?
Taught to respect our elders we were," he noted with a nod and a wink at Azaghal.  "I
think my least favorite was when Gron and the Baron tied me to the flagpole outside
the guildhouse.  Those dang kids came from all over the neighborhood with feathers
and I was helpless."
     Spirewolf nearly fell out of his seat with laughter.  "You do know that Balliol,
the one who always played at being innocent of all this stuff, snuck around the
neighborhood handing out feathers, don't you?"
     "Balliol?  No, I hadn't heard that.  I HAD heard that the young basher on the
team had been seen with feathers..."
     "Uh... Nope, hadn't heard that," commented the basher while moving quickly on.
"Usually they just made us serve them and do goofy stuff.  Attila, didn't Hardrada
make you eat everything for a week using a long spear?"
     "He did.  And those things are not toothpicks!  And I had to cut my food with a
greataxe."
     "Greataxe?!  You got lucky!  The Baron tried to make me cut my food with a maul!
But that didn't work so well.  I think it annoyed him.  I carried his gear to the
arena for the next two weeks."
     Attila couldn't help laughing at the memories.  "They made all the rookies serve
the champions."  After pausing a second, the Duelmaster continued.  "But don't change
the subject, Wolf!  Nomad will get seriously annoyed if you hurt one of his
gladiators.  Gron and the Baron may have enjoyed a bit of hazing, but it was never
overly wicked.  Where is young Cyril?"
     It was at that point that Azaghal burst out laughing.  Following the small
warrior's gaze, Attila saw Cyril enter the tavern and head there way.
    Approaching the table, Cyril started what had seemed to be a prepared speech.
"Oh, great Duelmaster!  A lowly initiate like I am wishes to serve you.  May I bring
you a mug of ale?"  And with that he lifted his skirt and curtsied.
     Momentarily stunned, Attila took a moment to speak.  "May the gods forgive you,
Wolf!  No!  Cyril, I wish my wenches to be... wenches!  You can fetch me a mug in the
Guildhall!  Go back and get changed before the whole town sees you that way!"
     With a grateful look the young warrior turned on his heel and sprinted out the
door, ponytails flying out behind him.  Spirewolf, Azaghal and Blue Marble were all
nearly falling off their seats with laughter.  Attila just shook his head.  He was
very glad he was no longer an initiate.
     When he could stop laughing, Blue Marble stood up.  "I gonna g' home.  Cyril...
dress!"   Laughing, he stumbled a bit as he got up, slipping on some of the ale he
had earlier spilt on the floor.  His head banged against a post with a metallic thud.
Apparently unbothered, Blue Marble headed out the door.
     As Marble headed out, Spirewolf commented dryly, "Good thing he always wears
that thing on his noggin."
     Attila and Azaghal looked at each other.  Eventually Azaghal had to ask.
"Marble's hasn't been an init for a long time.  Are you ever going to tell him he
doesn't have to wear a pot on his head anymore?"

     The life and times of Attila Keenblade, Duelmaster of Shadowspire

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in SHADOWSPIRE this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as OTTO'S DINER is pushed out of top team by WARMASTERS, who came from 
9th with a 5-0-0 this turn.  I want to know who's buying the drinks for who tonight 
at The Warty Toad, seeing as SUPERIOR FORCES NT's 26-24-0 has earned them 3rd place 
in the ranks.  Our condolences (or sneers, as the case may be) go out to MONSTER 
MANUAL for their drop to 15th from 3rd.  A 2-3-0 can do that.  The WARMASTERS guild 
has had a 5-0-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where 
this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, ARIOCH fought EVELYN WAUGH and gained 21 
points and contributed to OF WOLF AND MAN's 4-1-0.  EVELYN WAUGH has lost to ARIOCH, 
falling 16 points, while helping make LITERATE LOONS a 1-4-0 turn.  This turn ATTILA 
KEENBLADE challenged CHILI SURPRISE in what was SHADOWSPIRE's Title bout.  And all 
eyes were on CHILI SURPRISE this turn as he ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  
SHADOWSPIRE has a new victor!  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top 
team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Warty Toad until they win.  Maybe?  
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  CAPITAL CARTEL has cause to stand tall, as 
they were SHADOWSPIRE's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And avoiding CAPITAL CARTEL more than any other team we find LA PENTARCHIE.  
SHADOWSPIRE, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports 
fans, take notice that SERAFIN GAWAIN from THE RED BLADES was SHADOWSPIRE's most 
challenged warrior this turn.  Tsk, tsk, tsk.  TITUS, does your manager know you're 
challenging down 19 points to fight SERAFIN GAWAIN from THE RED BLADES?  It pains me 
to see warriors take advantage of the system like this.  TITUS won victory over 
SERAFIN GAWAIN, as if it surprises anyone.  LIMP IN from CAPITAL CARTEL took a risk 
this turn by bravely challenging up 27 points in a challenge against LIBERIUS.  Well, 
LIMP IN was overcame by LIBERIUS, but LIMP IN gained 3 in recognition for his 
efforts.  Thank goodness for small favors.  In a brave attempt, CHIMERA from MONSTER 
MANUAL challenged up 20 points to fight SPIREWOLF from the DRAGONBANE GUILD stable.  
CHIMERA perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he lost to SPIREWOLF and ended up 
with 65 recognition points.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  A farewell moment, if you please, LIAM O'FLAHERTY of LITERATE LOONS has 
been sent to the Dark Arena, and was carried out on his shield.  The grave that THE 
RED BLADES had dug for KID CHARLEMAGNE may yet be filled with the body of HIGH ELF.  
Seldom are the likes of this to be seen.  KID CHARLEMAGNE lives still!  
Congratulations go out to SUPERIOR FORCES NT, with THE SUPERIOR CAT revenging a 
bloodfeud against SCRAWNIE RONNIE of UNHOLY KNIGHTS.  We'd like to remind certain 
teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  You know who you are; and it's 
considered rude.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in SHADOWSPIRE, but never good to wear out my welcome. 
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in SHADOWSPIRE again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Congratulations to LIAM O'FLAHERTY and ST JOHN KITTEN, great Lord Protectors both. --
Agent of Capital Cartel

Attila Keenblade -- Salute.  Yours definitely sounds like a Duelmaster name.  Well
done. -- Agent (trying to strum up new business...)

Latrice!  You made me duff it!  You bxxxx!  And you ruined Capital Cartel's perfect
record.  Detective Kellumbo should fire you! -- Flop Shot of Capital Cartel
(obviously distraught)

Liberius -- You wanna be a warmaster, you gotta learn to hit 'em... Low And Away of
Capital Cartel

Dylan Ryder -- I know who is my mother, but who's your momma now? -- Limp In of
Capital Cartel

Berserker -- Wow!  I am lucky, lucky to get out of there alive.  How did I possibly
luck into that win.  Egad! -- Head Band of Capital Cartel

Venisha -- Well, well, well.  Agent will be proud of me.  (wink) -- Book Mark of
Capital Cartel

Fizzban, Beer, here's to you! -- Agent of Capital Cartel (standing and raising his
Perrier and Lime)

I am pleased to report a team resultant of 4-1 last turn.  The Board Of Directors is
pleased.  I know all you Cartel followers will be happy and excited also. -- Agent of
Capital Cartel

DK -- Tail?  "Untuck that tail"?  If you are looking for tail, you would be better
served elsewhere, you know?  I realize there is none in Michigan, but with that
unlimited DM budget, you could buy a ticket to New Orleans where there is a lot of
it. -- Agent (who allowed DK to go 1-1 against The Cartel this past turn to make poor
DK feel better)

Manager -- Don't let those sillies get you down.  Keep on experimenting, pal.  There
is nothing wrong with five different kinds of Total Parry, you know? -- Agent of
Capital Cartel (ever the helpful)

And a big, hearty welcome to Team Sludge.  May your stay in Shadowspire be long and
prosperous. -- Agent and The capital Cartel

Kellumbo -- Twelve.  Well, this makes thirteen.  When are you really going to give it
a try and write some relevant and significant personals? -- Agent (ever the
questioning)

Low and Away -- Boo hoo. -- Liam O'Flaherty
     [17(2)-18(1)-17-11(1)-9-10(1)-7 expert Att. & Init., VH/M, WF, and Defense.
Took forever to get the 2nd ST raise and the oversized idiot still only did Great
Damage.  Once he got to the c.c.s the prodgious peabrain took wins wherever he could
get them.  Retiring.  Really.]

Average Joe -- Why am I always surprised I keep losing that match-up?  Some people
never learn, namely, me.  Uncle. -- Gilbert

Gregorr -- Thought I might catch you off guard that time.  Though why exactly
catching you off guard would change the outcome is beyond me. -- Philip

Miley -- Lucky?  I hit you five out of six times.  I think you're the one who got
lucky and it still didn't help.  Besides, one prick from a toothpick ain't gonna put
me down!  I'm game for a rematch if you ever climb back into challenge range. --
Chili Surprise

All aimed-blows should just be killed.  That's all I have to say. -- Kiss My Grits

Rosalita -- If you like, I can also challenge you when you're below me in the
rankings. -- Goulash

Fizban the Drunk -- Welcome to Shadowspire!  Did I mention that my Diner does have a
liquor license? -- Otto X

Unsurprisingly, Year of The Cat got his one-hit routine in the face... that guy is
pathetic!  At the same time, the younger and much more efficient on the sand St John
Kitten got his invite.  Sad day for my scum chasers, but not so sad as they only met
a handful of scums during their very long stay in the beautiful Shadowspire.  St John
will try to put his newly acquired SH in the belly of all the greater fatter scums
roaming in the ranks of Freshmen!
P.S.  No more Chili for YotCat please, he is getting too old for that rough spicy
stuff.  Give us some prune juice!

Congrats to Nomad, breeder and master of duelmasters! -- Le Pentarque

Flop Shot -- Yep. -- Tom, a man of few words.

Ahhh... DK is coming back to his evil deeds... soon, we will be allowed to play ugly
for justice! -- LP

Shy Skunk -- At least I can count on you not to go all Pepe LePew on me. -- Serafin

S. Snoopy -- Nice challenge.  Too bad a decent fight didn't turn up more skills. --
Regina

Heatwave -- Yup. -- KC

Sarah James -- Guess I'll just cycle that desperation strat onto minute one and see
how it goes. -- Selena

Zamzalin -- Welcome to Shadowspire.  I hope your stay in the infirmary was pleasant.
-- Shillelagh Tor

Liam O. and SJK -- On to your just rewards.  Congrats from The Red Blades

Nomad -- Nice with the DM musical chairs.  Congrats to Atilla. -- Bill the Bard

Welcome and Welcome Back -- Team Sludge and Philanthropists. -- Bill the Bard and The
Red Blades

Blue Marble -- Ugh, that was horrible on my part, trying that weapon out just to see
how it would do.  I still hate it.  Hope to not meet you again for awhile! --
Grobbulus

Yruf -- What a horrible fight on my part.  Nicely done.  I can't beat people half my
fight total.  Not even sure why I am still fighting. -- Arioch

Nyderawyn -- That's the way fights should be, 2 big dudes bashing away until someone
falls down. -- Lariton

Virginia Woolf -- Your pretty short for a giantess! -- Colten

Heinrik -- Suprise!  I'm not as think as you slow I am. -- Zevran

Aragorn -- Welcome back! -- Bartender, mgr Jungleland

Elilad -- Well, what can I say?  The style match-up was in your favor but regardless
of that you sure looked pretty awesome. -- Outlaw Pete

Ctuchik -- Tom Joad has been avenged.  All that needs to be said. -- Bobby Jean

Brand -- Phew.  That didn't turn out the way I had imagined.  Guess I drew the
longest straw.  Considering your skill I would have appreciated at least one learn,
though. -- Jersey Girl

Danaela Spyrl -- Almost got the can open.  Need a bigger tool next time I guess. --
Rosalita

Lillekat -- I don't think you got the correct script.  That was not in the plans.
Nice fight.  Impressive. -- Cyril

Grobbulus -- Don't let the Boss give up on your style just because I have a hard
head. -- Blue Marblehead

Liam -- That just is not how that should go.  You don't quit easily.  Congratulations
on bringing the Loons another Protectorship. -- Spirewolf

Brentni -- I'm no happy with that one.  Nice win. -- Azaghal

Don't believe everything the Duelmaster writes! -- Long suffering Inits

Congrats to Dragonbane Guild!  I must say that 3 DM titles in 5 turns is quite
impressive!  Well done, sir! -- Vanek, Manger of Warmasters

Team Sludge -- Welcome to Shadowspire!  I hope you come to love it as much as we
have. -- Vanek

Welcome back Philanthropists!  Glad to have you back! -- Vanek

Philip K. Dick -- You are most welcome to try a rematch with me any time!  Hope to
see you again soon! -- Gregorr

Cyril -- No offense, but I was glad I didn't have to see your ugly mug again! --
Cicero

Low and Away -- Nice win despite the fact that I feel like I got robbed.  I guess
close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades though, right? -- Liberius 

Congrats to our 2 new graduates, Liam O'Flaherty and St. John Kitten! -- Vanek

Seriously, doesn't anyone else suspect that the Capital Cartel stable is likely using
steroids with that 65% w/l record?  I tip my hat to you Agent, as that is a most
impressive record, especially in this tough arena! -- Vanek

DK -- Do I avoid much?  I suppose I do use it as a tactic, is there a rule that I
shouldn't?  Anyway, all kidding aside, I have not been avoiding your guys the past
few turns.  I do believe I did avoid with 1 warrior this turn. -- Grimm

Rough turn for the Furry Fury stable. -- Grimm

Desmus Maximus -- Well fought, sir dwarf. -- Jehgan

Team Sludge -- My condolences on the loss of Felix, his death was not intentional.  I
await your bloodfued. -- Naryak

Zevran -- May the fleas of a thousand camels infest your arm pits. -- Heinrik

Kiss my Gritts -- Heinrik says I still owe you one, so be prepared. -- Elthor

Martin Luther -- What a difference 2 weeks make.  For this encounter you are the
king. -- Fimnar
