                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, it seems I'm becoming something of a minor celebrity in this town!  It
seems not too common an occurrence to repeat as duelmaster.  The last one was Bili on
turn 79-80.  I wonder how long it's been since a three-peat?  Not that I'm getting
ahead of myself, now.  There is a lot of still competition at the top of the 'spire.
Being a repeat champ, I guess I owe you a little knowledge about myself.  I'll say
that I have 55 learned skills, and at least one master rating.  That ought to keep
the tabloids happy for another turn!  If I'm still here next week, I'll relate
another tidbit.
     Now, as to the challenge last week from Liberius.  Dude, I don't know what to
tell you.  That's how most of my fights go.  Sometimes I gotta hit 'em a second time,
just to be sure.  I'm curious, did you have any intel on me, or was it just a
striker-vs-lunger style challenge?  Whatever the case, I'm always happy to humor the
old folks and maybe learn a couple skills off of 'em.
     Well, I'd better get this posted pretty soon.  Don't remember who I challenged,
but I'm sure it'll be a good fight!  Happy duelling!

                                                            Chili Surprise

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  SHADOWSPIRE needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Like, WARMASTERS 
had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by CLAN LONGBEARD!  Way to 
go CLAN LONGBEARD!  I couldn't believe it.  Did CLAN LONGBEARD really go up by 13?  
If only those guys didn't have so may missing teeth...  Gross!  One team deserves 
special mention 'cause they moved up 7 after going 4-1-0.  Keep it up, SUMMERBORN!  
MVP award for BOOK MARK?  CAPITAL CARTEL's proud of him after beating HUGH CAPET and 
getting 26 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  HUGH CAPET got smashed by BOOK 
MARK, and lost 25 points!  TITUS thinks his 16-11-3 and studly character is good 
enough to face up to the Duelmaster.  Any bets?  Don't you think the Duelmaster is 
being unfair?  I think CHILI SURPRISE should let TITUS be Duelmaster for a while, 
without fighting about it.  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his 
teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  The warriors 
of SUPERIOR FORCES NT must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do 
you guys know something that I don't?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are UNHOLY 
KNIGHTS?  SUPERIOR FORCES NT, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them 
to accept an invitation!  Like, is SERAFIN GAWAIN popular, or what?  She was 
challenged the most in all of SHADOWSPIRE!  She's got a 11-12-0, is that good?  For 
sure, I was holding my breath when I found out DUCHESS OF ERAT  challenged LIBERIUS.  
After all, haven't UNHOLY KNIGHTS and WARMASTERS had a long standing duel in 
SHADOWSPIRE?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but LIBERIUS wants me to 
write about it since he bested DUCHESS OF ERAT.  Satisfied?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  How cruel!  SUMMERBORN heartlessly sent its to HEATWAVE certain fate in 
the Dark Arena.  Is a 7-6-0 bad or something?  It was kind of sad, seeing old SHY 
SKUNK stumbling around the arena, before FIMNAR finished him off.  Oh well!  What if 
they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

I think that an Agent owes me something...  I worked hard to help him keep his job...
it was a sacrifice to give him two victories, but I felt I had to help! -- Le
Pentarque

Congrats to Gentleben!  What a turn.

By the way, my rookie missed the turn, and I'm on holidays, so I can only hope he
reached the RSI HQ before the turn 86... -- Le Pentarque

Keeelumboooo!  Come back!  We need our favorite bad guy!  You can DC and I won't
avoid!  No kidding, you are one of the pillars of Shadowspire. -- Le Pentarque

Onyb Englavar -- You dirty rotten un-understandable spouting Philanthropist, how did
you do that!  You bum.  You scum.  You dork. -- Limp In (still limping)

Average Joe -- It takes more than average to hit my fast ball, buddy! -- Low And Away
(feeling strong)

Cariec Tom -- Thanks for penting on me, challenging me, and losing to me.  Yu da man.
La, la, la. -- Book Mark (wondering if he should read to Cariec Tom in the hospital
bed)

Blue Marble -- I guess you could say I lost my taw? -- Head Band (sweating profusely)

Titus -- My Flop Shot offers you a friendly challenge and you murder him?!  You
should be a New York Yankee or work for Donald Trump or Detective Kellumbo!  You
scuzz!  Flop Shot was such a beauty at 12(+1)-10-11-17-9-9-17 (Normal Damage; normal
endurance; minus two decise).  Perhaps you have done me a favor as I did not seem to
be able to hit flop shots consistently and I have now switched to a chipper.  Perhaps
I will thank you by not blood feuding; perhaps I won't. --  Agent, Capital Cartel

D.K. -- Is our year about over? re you about to retire from tour commitment so I can
retire from mine? -- Agent, Capital Cartel

D.K. -- Where are your personals?  When are you going to live up to your desire to
out-personal the Capital cartel.  Now?  Never? -- Agent, Capital Cartel

Liberius -- Poor management, you know?  Agent sits in his office drinking expensive
lattes in the morning and goes out playing golf in the afternoon.  I want his job! --
Limp In (one of five poorly managed Capital Cartelians)

Chili Surprise -- Congrats on the repeat.  You are one fine Duelmaster.  You write
great DM Columns too.  Let's talk signing you up to my cartel so you can reach your
fullest potential.  (re: $$$) -- Agent, Capital Cartel

Sorry, all, as we may be running one warrior short.  Who knows when that new recruit
will sign the papers and arrive in Cartel Land. -- Agent, Capital Cartel

Welcome to Archaic Chaos! -- The Dragonbane Guild

Head Band -- An interesting backup.  Better than nothing perhaps, but an odd thing
for you to try and use.  Challenges are much easier when your opponent brings faulty
gear into the arena. -- Blue Marble (translated by Azaghal)

Shy Skunk -- You are not shy with the challenges.  Experience has its advantages. --
Spirewolf

Apis Fremo -- I just didn't want your entire team to start out winless.  That would
have been harsh, just ask the Bunnies.  So I, well, I, sorta, didn't try hard.  Yeah,
that's it. -- Cyril

Regina Spectre -- Your team has shown some considerable skill with that style.  Yet,
this one was mine. -- Azaghal

Lord Protector Anslem -- I am certainly happy that you will be moving on to the Isle.
You deserve that title.  Perhaps some day I will as well. -- Attila Keenblade

Managerr -- No Panda is superior to Po'd, and you see now he is dead. -- Grimm

Phillip -- Why can't you leave me alone?  I am trying to get on to retirement.  You
know, a little shuffle board, some canasta. -- Ornery

All -- I have an idea for a theme fun event.  The all down-challenge turn.  Where the
total of greatest number of down challenges per team are mentioned and we would have
a silly award for it.  Not being mean, We could call it Kellumbo's Cup, I think it
would be cool.  Since we harass him and he is a great arena member.  It gives us a
teaser shot out to one of our interesting villians. -- Grimm

For all who sent guys from other areans into the tourny, best of luck. -- Grimm

I am on maintenance this turn.  Back to normal next. -- Grimm

Chili Surprise -- I knew you'd be tough to beat, but I had to try.  Well done, sir,
and congrats on holding the throne. -- Liberius

Unholy Knights -- 87 points!?!  Wow!  Well done. -- Vanek, Manager of Warmasters

Archaic Chaos -- Glad to have you onboard!  Welcome to Shadowspire! -- Vanek

Agent -- Although I was kind of excited to hit the 20 kill threshold before anybody
else in this arena, I was disappointed to see it was one of yours.  I had hoped to
pin that dubious honor on one of several other teams.  Sorry about the loss of Flop
Shot.  Titus awaits your bloodfeud. -- Vanek

Xorn -- You must have improved since last we fought.  I used the same strategy as the
last time we met and was surprised to see the different result.  Well done sir! --
Gregorr

Volax Steelborn -- I was Woodborn so I have been told. -- Brand

Elilad -- I thought you wanted to fight?  What gives, duuuude. -- Duchess of Erat

Outlaw Pete -- They ought to Outlaw you from fighting.  Bobbyjean fought better than
you and she's a girl, come back when you grow up. -- Ctuchik

Musse Pig -- Well, I like Chocolate Musse and I like Pigs in a blanket and now I like
Musse Pig the best!!!  You're the greatest! -- Scrawnie Ronnie

IglPigl -- I am not sure how to pronounce that name so I had to end it quick because
it causing me a headache. -- Mountain Dan a mountain of a man

Detective Kellumbo -- Sorry to hear that you have to sit it out.  I hope your absence
is short lived.  I enjoyed crossing swords with you and look forward to do so again
in the near (did you read that, NEAR) future.  Forever a throne in your side. --
Gentleben

Unholy Knights -- Holy Crap!!!  If you guys keep fighting this way I will have to
change your name to Holycrap Knights instead of Ben's Bazaar.  Not that it really
matters, the gladitorial commision will not let us change our name this year, maybe
next year. -- Gentleben

Warmasters -- Hello, Gentleben here.  Are you done with the current top team award,
'cause I was kind of thinking well that maybe if you weren't going to use it this
turn, well, that I could, like, I don't know, maybe use it instead of you if you're
done with it, of curse, I mean of course, I would never Curse you to your face, I
mean...  You're done with it right?! -- Gentleben

Bartender -- Pour me a drink and one for your self now that the BF is done. --
Gentleben

Archaic Chaos -- Welcome.  Glad you decided to join us here.  Feel free to anounce
your self in the PAs and please join us for a rousing good time on the forums. --
Gentleben, mgr. Unholy Knights

Master Darque -- You graduated another, well done.  I hope your replacement is a
goodin.  We shall see you on the sands. -- Gentleben

Tripwire -- Keep the IC flames burning, I will see what I can do to keep you hot
under the collar. -- Gentleben

Head Band -- What is it with your style lately, jeez! -- Fimnar

Briarsmile -- A little luck never hurts. -- Elthor

Mackapacka -- I fight better when I am depserate. -- Heinrik

Nyderawyn -- Damned Orc! -- Naryak

Pink Bunny -- Thanks for the quickee. -- Jehgan

Congrats to all the recent invitees. -- Clan Longbeard

Berserker -- #$% ^&*@ and die! -- Fimnar

Brown Betty -- Jeez, lady, give a half elf a chance, will ya. -- Elthor

Guiness -- You shouldn't have gotten me desperate, I await your retribution. --
Heinrik

Malleus -- Damn, what a wake up call. -- Naryak

Smacky Bunny -- You sure you aren't the energizer one? -- Jehgan

Chupucasuperior -- You, a dwarf? Really?!? -- Bobby Jean

     If he's got hair on his face, he's a dwarf.

Kiss My Grits -- Don't judge a book by its cover, eh?  Thanks for the challenge and
the learns. -- Rosalita

Captain Scragg -- Well challenged!  You should know that I am very grateful for my
first learn in three turns. -- Jersey Girl

Ctuchik -- That turned out to be a closer fight than I thought it would be.  Thanks
for being a sport and fighting these blood feud duels even though you beat us most of
the time.  Try not to kill any more of us, will ya? -- Outlaw Pete

Rena -- I think I could've been more lucky with my first match-up but this arena is
tough and I best learn it right away. -- Magic Rat
