                             Notes from the arena champ.

     There standing on the DM throne was the scrawny AB from Tripwire's stable,
Zevran.  His hair was slicked back and he was standing there singing into a short
spear, and gyrating his body in horrid ways.  "Weeeeeee are the champions my
freinddsssssss, and weeeeell keep on fighting till the enddddd!"
     Trying to keep his head from exploding from the sound, Tripwire raised his hand
and the singing abruptly ended with a gasp as the DM from his stable was lifted from
his chair and he bodily started floating towards the psionic.
     Staring into the warrior's eyes as he gasped for breath Tripwire began to speak
calmly.  "You do realize that you will now be bloodfueded, correct?  You do realize
that you have about a 1% change of winning that Bloodfued, correct?  And here you
are, instead of practicing, singing some ridiculous song!"
     Now turning purple the AB's eyes were beginning to water from lack of air, he
was struggling to get a breath and kept clawing at his throat.  "I have told you all
time and again that I care not for anything except winning.  I don't care about the
throne.  I don't care about sending you to tournaments or winning prizes here.  I am
here for one reason.  To make this city mine.  In the arena and out.  And if you
don't WIN, I can't move my stable higher in the rankings and have more power.  I have
plans for Shadowspire."
     Tripwire's thoughts moved away a moment before he realized that his AB was limp
and unconscious.  Waving his hand he released the warrior into a heap on the ground
and after ensuring the idiot was still breathing he turned and walked out of the
room.  "Plans indeed...."

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly SHADOWSPIRE games.  Former top team RODENT CLAN was 
unseated this week as LITERATE LOONS moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 5-0-0 record for the round.  The proverbial rising comet can only hope to 
compare with PHILANTHROPISTS' team record!  A 4-1-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 
4th place ranking.  LA PENTARCHIE bore the brunt of major assault on their standings 
this week as they dropped to 18th position as the result of going 1-4-0!  Did only my 
eyes note the 4-1-0 record which OF WOLF AND MAN managed to post this round?  I don't 
doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  ELTHOR caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested BRICK MOUSE and was awarded 23 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, ELTHOR put down BRICK 
MOUSE, causing it to lose 14 points of recognition in the process.  Who here was not 
present for the title fight this week as MIDNIGHT SUN boldly challenged ZEVRAN in 
order to strive for the Duelmasters honors?  The city has turned out in honor of 
MIDNIGHT SUN, for with hers arena victory she may now lay claim to the highest 
position in the city!  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels 
this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In SHADOWSPIRE "art" is a word that 
has long since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to 
beat in SHADOWSPIRE these days is CAPITAL CARTEL.  At least, most blades in town are 
looking to avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of DARQUE AGES are catching the bulk 
of jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Loose 
talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many 
fighters are after AZAGHAL.  Watch your back!  A match that raised a few eyebrows at 
the games this week, it seems that BERSERKER posted a challenge against the more 
highly recognized KID CHARLEMAGNE.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand 
BERSERKER was defeated by KID CHARLEMAGNE.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline 
of steel.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  My hearty congratulations DOPPLEGANGER, for thy revenge upon 
ALEKSANDR, slayer of thy fallen comrade.  Next time he will know better, eh?  Some 
say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger 
in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in SHADOWSPIRE.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  More than a sharp eye must I 
keep, indeed a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari 
await me!  Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, 
and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Fimnar, Fimnar...  Just because you were lucky once?  Well, shucks, thanks for the
challenge and the win.  You were a good read. -- Book Mark, Capital Cartel

Arghhh!  Brick Mouse, your bricks were too formidable.  Besides, I have an excuse.  I
was limping. -- Limp In, Capital Cartel

Charles Martel -- We Cartel-types have been appreciating you of late. -- Pronate,
Capital Cartel

Beastier Wee -- Nasty, nasty, nasty.  You made me use the wrong ball, you cretin!
Those finger holes were too wide and too big.  You owe me an apology and I want my
win back! -- Gutter Ball, Capital Cartel

Doppelganger -- That drop kick thing doesn't work so well anymore.  I feel sorry for
you. -- Punt, Capital Cartel

Smack Bunny -- Of course I do calisthenics.  I lift heavy cupcakes, toss back pints,
and shovel ice cream.  Does that answer your question? -- Gutter Ball, Capital Cartel

All -- Good luck in the Tourney; I hope....  Oh, I guess I shouldn't say that here.
Second thought; let me think about that.  Meanwhile, Happy Halloween. -- Agent

Zevran -- I hope you hold true to your Darkholmian manager's ideologies and are not
avoiding.  I really do.  (wink) -- Bookmark, Capital Cartel  (Waiting for the right
page and maybe having found it.)

Well, I didn't write anything the last turn... the morals were low and the turn still
lost by a Rabid Mailman, so... but I'm back! -- Le Pentarque

Arf -- Losing again, but I'm sooooo happy this bloodfeud is over! -- Cardiec Tom

Condolences, Master Darque, Martin didn't deserve that. -- LP

Hum, Big Nog, I can't say, the fight is still unread!  But I trust you, I'm not
anxious to see it. -- Fidget

Sorry about that, Blood Mage.  Better luck in a better world. -- Hypogee
P.S.  I'm not the best warrior around, but still my ratio is quite unfair, so do not
rush all the warriors beaten by me to the DA!

Superiorbane -- I am picking up on what to do with your style of late. --
Notaxestexas

Vanek and co. -- Don't push it. -- Life Patent.

Victor -- Again ostentatious and again left knowing the truth. -- Roundup

Cicero -- Notice the attack location?  You, too, Victor.  Want a real taste?  Just
ask. -- Action

Outlaw Pete -- Look, I am just not into older men. -- Suicide Seed

Tyger and Paper Tigers -- Hang in there. -- Action

Evander -- Wow, I hope this trend continues, I actually looked half-way decent in
that fight. -- Big Nog

MD and Ghost of ML -- Ouch!  I know that feeling of having worked that hard with
someone and having it come to naught.  Live by the sword as they say.  It's looking
pretty grim with the 2 fighters that you can BF with.  I will be preparing for Fan
Zhen, but either of them will probably make me look foolish. -- Zevran

Naryak -- Hrmm, I swung back like I was supposed to, but you dodged!  That's not
right! -- Shaviola

Jaklak -- Dangit!  That's 2 fights in a row vs my own style.  Not what I want! --
Archon

Bobby Jean -- Now what did you make that challenge for?  I don't mind at all, I just
don't see the advantage for you.  Actually, I saw to the disadvantage I guess.  Feel
free to try again. -- Azaghal

Kiss My Grits -- "Savagely defeated?"  Really?  Twenty-two minutes of savage?  No, I
don't think so.  I lost, yes, but "savagely defeated?"  No.  I've been savagely
defeated, and that wasn't it. -- Blue Marble

Piotr -- A well timed challenge.  That is not what my "if challenged strat" was
expecting. -- Cyril

Chinga -- Nice challenge.  I guess everybody has to win their first sometime. --
Jager

Hector -- I know, you think you're going to win and you think you're going to win.
Then you don't.  I just love doing that.  Maybe I'll try something different this
time. -- Irn Bru

Magic Rat -- Back in your hole...or hat...or what ever small and dark place it is
that you have crawled out from. -- Duchess of Erat, AKA E-RAT-ticator

Onyb Englvar -- Is your name some foreign form of pig latin or something?  Whatever
it is, I hate it and I hate you. -- Ctuchik

Gutterball -- Looks I got picked the spair on that one. -- Beastier Wee

Pandera Pax -- You sound like a disease and I think you infected me with your archaic
black voodoo magic. -- Ukant b Sirius

Zevran -- Congrats on the throne I have high hopes of knocking you off. -- Duchess of
Erat

Champions -- What an odd mixture of styles we have here, this is going to be fun. --
Gentleben

Liam O'Superior -- A cheesy challenge, but allowable.  I hope I can return the
compliment soon. -- Talthybius 

Anger Mouse -- Hey, now you're making ME mad!!  Hopping around in plate armor and you
hardly broke a sweat??  That's not normal!!  You must be some sort of genetic freak!
Is that it?  Are you an escapee from some sort of mad scientist's lab experiment
(gone horribly wrong)?? -- Numitor

Ukant B Sirius -- Wrong arena.  I think you meant the one for "night training." --
Pandera Pax 

Paper Tigers -- Welcome to Shadowspire!!  Well, I guess now is as good a time as any
to show you where we cart our dead...  it was completely unintentional, you
understand.  He was just so freakin' BIG, he scared me!  I guess I overreacted.
Sorry 'bout that.  (Don't forget to mention to the mortician that you're a new team--
you'll get a nice discount.  It might come in handy.) -- Patroclus

27 September 10
Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
