                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Surprise, surprise, surprise!  Bet you didn't expect to see me sitting here, did
ya?  To tell the truth, I didn't even expect it so soon.  After all, my team isn't
known for their winning ways.  Yet here I am, a mere 20 turns after our debut in this
fair city and we have our first duelmaster.  I'm the last surviving member of the
original Diner crew, and fortunately, the only one Otto really wanted to keep.  With
any luck, I'll survive to be our first graduate as well.
     Now, to address matters of the bouts themselves.  Attila, I'm kinda glad you
challenged me, because I had challenged you last turn, too.  Don't let the fact that
I'm responsible for over one-third of my team's wins fool you.  We're better than we
look.  I'd like a rematch, but with so many potential challengers it's not likely to
happen.
     In closing, let me just say how grateful I am for this arena.  I once thought
I'd never again see the old-school style of play that makes our game what it is.  The
level of competition here warms my heart and keeps life interesting.  Hats off to the
fighters and managers of Shadowspire!

                                                         Chili Surprise

                                      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.  Who can explain it?  Not 
you, not me, not UNHOLY KNIGHTS' opponents, after watching them shoot up the ranks 
from 20th to 2nd.  DAGGERS DEEP bit the big one as they could not win.  They dropped 
from 5th down to 19th!  Are you guy giving lessons or what?  It seems so recently 
people were saying TEAM SLUDGE was washed up, finished.  But 3-1-0 moved them up 4.  
I guess they're washed no more...  What's with BRAND?  He actually beat NEVERQUEST's 
VOLAX STEELBORN, and walked away with 26 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big 
at UNHOLY KNIGHTS while they watched BRAND clobber VOLAX STEELBORN.  He lost 24 
points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  WARMASTERS' hatred of 
OTTO'S DINER surfaced again as LIBERIUS challenged SHADOWSPIRE's top dog.  LIBERIUS 
was reminded on the sands why CHILI SURPRISE is Duelmaster.  I suppose you want to 
hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was OF WOLF AND MAN.  In my day, no team with a 196-198-11 would 
scare me off!  What's the problem, LA PENTARCHIE?  How well I know the feeling of 
being the most challenged warrior, XORN!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back 
to haunt you.  Maybe LITERATE LOONS' PHILIP K. DICK is one of those guys who likes 
pain, or something.  That's what he'll get next week, after challenging up 30 to 
ORNERY OCELOT.  ORNERY OCELOT must not been fighting well, cause she lost to PHILIP 
K. DICK of LITERATE LOONS.  Sometimes you just have a bad day where things get, um, 
mixed up.  Keep challenging up 26 points, FLOP SHOT, and I won't have to write about 
you much longer.  TITUS always accepts those kind of challenges...  As I expected, 
TITUS killed FLOP SHOT.  Not to start anything, but, FLOP SHOT, now that you've faced 
him and seen his style, you might try it again!   
     Warriors of SHADOWSPIRE unite.  You have only your games to lose!  We all knew 
it had to happen sooner or later.  A warrior can't stick around with a 13-9-2, and 
TITUS easily took care of FLOP SHOT.  YRUF of DAGGERS DEEP didn't know when to quit.  
When you've got a 10-8-0, that's a good sign.  Now he's dead.  The ultimate victory 
is one that results in death.  TITUS of knows this.  Will CAPITAL CARTEL attempt a 
Bloodfeud?  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young 
rapscallions, take note!   
     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.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

                                     PERSONAL ADS

All -- In case there are any slow learners out there who need to be convinced, my
death by Dark Champion should be final proof that the War Flail is good fer nuttin.
-- the former Liam O'Flaherty

     Hey, the Dark Champion is GOOD.

Arioch -- Seems fewer and fewer fight the way you do nowadays.  Which, personally, is
a boon for my record as well as my ego. -- Evelyn Waugh

Cariec Tom -- Just what the world needed another timeless battle of mediocre bashers.
I can almost hear the Gods harrumphing in the sky. -- Gilbert

D.K. -- This will be your chance.  Minimal ads this time.  You can do it! -- Agent

To those assuming that all Capital Cartel "warriors" use steroids, I will have you
know that two do not! -- Agent

Xorn -- Well challenged, well executed, well won.  Salute. -- Low And away

Liberius -- I knew it was a long shot, but I thought I might be able to bluff you
with an all-in.  (sigh) -- Limp In

Martin Luther -- Shucks.  Averroes, yes!  Darque Ages, like kissing one's sister. --
Agent

Fimnar -- I chopped your beard. (wink) -- Head Band

Thanks (again!) for your column, Nomad: you deserve to quickly get your throne back!
-- LMPM

Nicely done though, Otto: the rough start is almost forgotten now!

Bye!  And sorry for the really unlucky Mr. Dick. -- St John Kitten

Well, WS Gilbert, we don't understand either.  Why Joe and not Tom?? -- Average Joe
and Cardiec Tom, pondering.

Year of the Cat should have lost as we are used too.  Better luck next time, Ettin (I
must not forget to avoid). -- LMPM

Limp In -- You surprised me with that challenge.  After my strong showing and near
win against Low and Away, I didn't think I'd get another challenge from either of you
guys with easier targets about.  I'll take the win though. -- Liberius

Yruf -- Nice style match up for you, but the 19 FE difference in that random match up
is tough to overcome.  And you're welcome for the 5 skill learns! -- Gregorr

Serafin Gawain -- Neither I nor my manager generally tend to make big down
challenges, but Vanek insisted that I do so this turn to make a point.  He is
beginning to get tired of seeing warriors from your stable nearly every turn and
thought this may get your manager's attention.  Don't say I didn't warn you. -- Titus

Captain Scragg -- You are either very brave or very foolish.  Either way, I'll give
you credit for the attempt.  Nice try. -- Viridio

Fuzzy Bunnies -- Welcome to Shadowspire.  I hope you enjoy your stay here.  Keep your
chin up and don't let the bad start discourage you!  Good Luck! -- Vanek, Manager of
Warmasters

Literate Loons -- Wow, you are a brutal task master over there, aren't you?  I mean,
Liam O'Flaherty gives you 50 fights and after receiving his graduation notice you
send him to the Dark Arena only to leave on his shield.  Very harsh. -- Vanek

Nomad -- Once again, another very nice and entertaining Duelmaster column! -- Vanek

Mountain Dan -- Gutsy challenge! -- Rosalita

Ctuchik -- Interesting!  Last time it sure looked like you were gonna win it and I
walked away the victor.  This time I feel I dominated the fight completely and you
walk away with the win.  This turn I'm leaving the blood feuding business to Outlaw
Pete.  He won't win, most likely, but at least he doesn't mind not being taught
anything. -- Bobby Jean

Sinister Snoopy -- Now, that was fun, eh? -- Outlaw Pete

All -- Sorry for the lack of PAs recently but I have been extremely busy and not in a
good way.  I hope to be more involved in the future. -- Gentleben, MGR Unholy Knights

Iron Golem -- Not exactly the fight I was gearing up for but I did better than I
thought I would once I looked up and saw you on the other side of the sands. -- Brand

Maddened Meerkat -- I know now why you are so mad, have you tried an off-hand weapon?
-- Duchess of Erat

Bobby Jean -- You survived round 2, want to go for 3?  3rd time is the charm and then
your team mates will get a chance to keep BFing or is it Bsing? -- Ctuchik

The Superior Cat -- You know, taking the name of a graduated DM from this arena and
claiming to be the superior version of them does not mean what you think it means.
Try it again and I may not let you live. -- Scrawnie Ronnie

Rosalita -- I didn't challenge you expected to win, and yes I did get what I
expected. -- Mountain Dan

To all the new teams in the last few turns, Team Sludge and Fuzzy Bunnies, welcome
and fight strong and leave it all out on the sands. -- Unholy Knights

Agent and the Capital Cartel -- The welcome is well received!  May you not see my
Slave's dagger pierce your warrior's heart. -- Team Sludge

Shillelagh Tor -- Yes, it was quite lovely.  I think I'll head back soon. -- Zamzalin

Bill the Bard and the Red Blades -- The welcome is well received!  May you not see my
slave's dagger pierce your warrior's hearts. -- Team Sludge

Vanek -- The welcome is well received!  May you not see my slave's dagger pierce your
warrior's hearts. -- Team Sludge

Jehgan -- Regretably, Desmus Maximus was chosen by the gods and cannot respond.  Know
he died screaming for mother on the sands at the hands of a greater opponent. -- Team
Sludge

Naryak -- No condolences necessary.  He died how he wanted to, at the hands of a
gladiator on the sands of the arena. -- Team Sludge

Superieee Beastie -- All I can say is sorry if my friend gave you your second loss.
But if you did win... Then I'm offering 1,000 gold to the man, woman, or child who
kills you. -- Rena
P.S.  Dogs like you whose only talent is not falling over before the other one tires
of beating you sensless and gives up deserve no less than death.
