                             Notes from the arena champ.

Greetings Warriors of Shadowspire!

     As my namesake was the first King of France, I was the first Parry Lunge of the
Darque Ages stable in Shadowspire.  Unlike my namesake, my tenure has been less than
successful.  I begin and end my career as a 12-5-12-17-17-10-11 PL (Very Frail,
Normal Endurance, Good Damage).  I am quite different from Darque's normal Plunger
designs in that I was lacking in Constitution and Deftness.  I was also forced to run
offensively much of my career due to my physicals, which in turn led to my "zealous"
killing tendencies.  I do tie Slaughtermouse 5 for most kills as DM so I guess my
career can't be considered a complete failure.  I'm also on my way to the Isle and
immortality as the first Plunger from the Darque Ages stable, contributing to
Darque's round robin aspirations.  I take my place as graduate #7 and as the sixth
style.
     The Commission has given me the relevant information on my tendencies and
favorites.  I like the SH, as well as a LO/MO rhythm.  I only used the SH as a back
up during my career in Shadowspire and only occassionally the rhythm.  I apparently
favor no tactics and learn Decise skills quite easily.  I'm off to retirement on the
Isle of the Eye.  I know it's a small place, but I like crowds and I will have plenty
of my Darque Age teammates to keep me company there.
     Good luck to everyone.  My challenges go to Chupucasuperior and Duchess of Erat
since they will be the highest ranked Challenger Champions that are not going to the
Isle this turn.  Good luck to all!

Your Duelmaster,

Hugh Capet

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of SHADOWSPIRE!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  The proverbial rising comet can only 
hope to compare with FUCHI OWNED's team record!  A 3-2-0 week and now a firm grasp on 
a 13th place ranking.  My praise to ARCHAIC CHAOS for their 4-1-1 week this time out. 
Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of notice!  ELTHOR caught the eye 
of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested EVELYN WAUGH and was 
awarded 28 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, ELTHOR 
put down EVELYN WAUGH, causing him to lose 27 points of recognition in the process.  
As is fitting, the most sought after warrior on the challenge boards this week was 
none other than Duelmaster HUGH CAPET himself.  This time out KID CHARLEMAGNE made 
his bid for the throne as he Bloodfeuded HUGH CAPET in an all out contest of skill 
for possession of the title!  The city has turned out in honor of KID CHARLEMAGNE, 
for with his arena victory he may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  
No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their position 
using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In SHADOWSPIRE "art" is a word that 
has long since passed from the language!  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided 
when this week's challenge seeking began.  OF WOLF AND MAN is feared.  This much I 
can say.  Apparently the stalwarts of DRAGONBANE GUILD are catching the bulk of jests 
down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  I cannot but 
express pride for the fearlessness of BERSERKER who cast caution to the winds and 
challenged KISS MY GRITS, a fighter 30 points higher.  I must admit to some joy.  
Before my very eyes the underdog in this contest, BERSERKER, defeated KISS MY GRITS 
to claim victory and recognition.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games 
this week, it seems that BOBBY JEAN posted a challenge against the more highly 
recognized AZAGHAL.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand BOBBY JEAN subdued 
AZAGHAL.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Perhaps even the strong cannot escape 
the vagaries of this world.  This week arena veteran BRICK MOUSE was slain, despite a 
19-10-0 record.  Cruelly, A.E. HOUSMAN of LITERATE LOONS has slain the lesser ranked 
ORIGAMI.  Word already flies around town that PAPER TIGERS plans a bloodfeud!  Rite 
of Bloodfeud must forever be reserved for teams with honor.  Witness SHADOWSPIRE!  
FUZZY BUNNIES has failed to revenge the slaying of fallen PINK BUNNY.  My hearty 
congratulations A.E. HOUSMAN, for thy revenge upon ORIGAMI, slayer of thy fallen 
comrade.  Next time he will know better, eh?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in SHADOWSPIRE as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is 
mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Gutter Ball -- Impressive. -- Chingachgook

Beholder -- I'll keep an eye on you, tovarisch. -- Aleks

Martel -- Ow! -- Urmar

Eye -- Well done. -- Hana

Joe -- A fine fight, friend.  I have no doubt that you'll be a difficult warrior to
defeat in the near future. -- Hector

Well, thankfully Book Mark retired and opened up one contract spot.  Bookie was a
little large and overweight, but was an adequate 12-5-16-17-9-14-11 ST.  Sayanora. --
Agent, Capital Cartel

Office Brown Noser -- My bad!  I didn't know you were the Big Boss's nephew.  Stupid
challenge. -- Punt (now probably really having to punt)

Chingachgook -- Hubba, hubba!  I kept it in the middle of the lanes and you just
pooped out.  You have to be in shape to bowl with me, so start chugging liters for
practice. -- Gutter Ball

Azaghal -- You again!  I am going broke. -- Limp In

Classic Napalm -- How did I win that?  I just plain lucked out after you had that
serious death intent.  I am running, running, running, and avoiding, avoiding,

avoiding. -- Pronate
P.S.  The Consortium Bosses congratulate you on a FINE tournament and for the welcome
starting T.V. for COMMP Squad.

Thanks for this splendid SYP, MDarque, comprehensive and precise! -- LP
P.S.  Thanks to the Arcane Kid and Hail King Obomba, may he rule forever!  It was
also nice to get a living Spy.

     Thanks.  I'll do it again from time to time, if I get the chance. -- Larkin

Rhaaa... this Pronate guy is invincible...

Outlaw Pete is now behind bars. -- Sheriff Tom, trying to be more efficient.

Well, Jager von Drachen, feel free to pound some other teams! -- LP

Today the Small Cat is in our beautiful city to share a few bowls of milk and
celebrate his second TC...  Yes, Shadowspirians can strike fear in the heart of the
tourney warriors!  Turn 100, tourney 50, the DuelGods are watching us.

Limp In -- Drew well on the river, did you?  All it took was a slight change of
strategy.  I think I may try that one again. -- Azaghal

Bobby Jean -- I got a win!  I have struggled with those. -- Blue Marble, not to be
confused with countertops

CEO -- The firm must feel a bit uneasy when the guy in charge makes decisions like
that.  I would expect you to be wiser in your challenges, to be a role-model of
sorts. -- Jager von Drachen

Beastier Wee -- Now, perhaps the problem is the Wee, part?  As in too "wee" to do
much damage?  Or "gotta go Wee and can't stay to finish the fight?"  At this point
the Wee certainly seems to be the dominant half of your name. -- Irn Bru

Virginia Wolf -- Well, my consciousness is streaming to tell me that I should not try
that challenge again.  It got really bad reviews. -- Cyril

Arabian Knight -- Thanks for the invite.  Don't mind if I do! -- Pandera Pax

El Cid -- That's some kind of armor you've got there!  Light and durable, I'll give
you that. -- Numitor

Fidget -- Okay, okay--my sandals were untied.  Really! -- Glaucus

Tyger -- Tyger, Tyger, on the sand so rough,
              Will you get up?  Or have you had enough?
              Take your time; the day is fair...
              Besides, I'm not going anywhere.
                                             -- Patroclus 

Shadowspire -- We seem to be averaging two "unplanned" deaths per turn.  Nice.  Let's
see if they get revenged. -- Kid Arcane
P.S.  Also, I thought it was interesting to note that a P-Strike has NEVER taken the
throne here.  What's the deal?  Should we strive to see who accomplishes this first?

Darque -  That was a damn fine piece of work.  I really enjoyed your SYP on turn 100!
Very well done sir! - Vanek, Manager of Warmasters

I am unsure who took the time to write the Spy Report for turn 100, but I just wanted
to say that I really enjoyed it and hope you'll do it again in the future.  Thank you
for taking the time to write it up! -- Vanek

     You're welcome, and if the Commission lets me have the files on a regular basis,
     I'll do spy reports here... on an irregular basis. -- Larkin

All -- Catching up on some arena ads. -- Visionist

Mice and Dice -- I had to try. -- Naryak

Shaviola -- I guess I have your number. -- Naryak

     And you're going to call her in the morning?  Right.

Sinister Snoopy -- You are a good teacher, thanks. -- Naryak

Office Brwn Noser -- I had forgetten what winning feels like. -- Heinrik

Mice and Dice -- I feel so used! -- Heinrik

Virginia Woolf -- What does it take for you to quit?  Jeeeez! -- Heinrik

Chupucasuperior -- Would you get your invite or die already!?! -- Elthor

Brick Mouse -- HAH!  More like Nerf Mouse. -- Elthor

Book Mark -- Ohhh, what a difference a few turns make. -- Fimnar

Mice and Dice -- Our evil plan is working perfectly, now if someone else would just
kill you for us. -- Fimnar

August -- Arrrghhh!  Damn smithy! -- Fimnar

A.E. Housman -- How the.... -- Elthor

Marco Polo -- Am I not the greatest teacher in Shadowspire history. -- Heinrik

Bengali -- Hmmmm, interesting style choice.  Good Luck. -- Jaklak

All -- I have enjoyed the first 100 turns, here is for continued success of
Shadowspire. -- Visionist

Congrats to all the recent invitees. -- All of the Clan Longbeard guild

Scores of recent graduates -- Congrats from The Red Blades!

Evelyn -- Nice fight.  Guessed wrong on how to play that, I guess.  Good luck on the
Isle. -- Selena

L. Bang -- Weirdos, are we? -- S. Tor

Petronius -- Maybe that's not my weapon. -- Luke

Asserius -- I'm a little less conflicted than my pal, Luke. -- Anna H.

Nyderawyn -- Tough matchup for you. -- KC

Fuchi Owned -- Welcome back! -- The Red Blades

To all those that participated in the tourney (dead and rookies) -- Shame on you! --
Gentleben

To all those that participated in the ADM Tourney -- Well fought and we had a TC
represented from Shadowspire, way to go The Small Cat!!! -- Unholy Knights

Shadowspire 101 -- No tournies until AFTER graduation, the dead tourney occurs before
graduation even if you TC. -- Gentleben
P.S.  <hint>  If you graduate you will be immortal and won't need the dead tourney.
;)

DM/LP Hugh Capet -- I guess you bloomed at the right time, congrats on finishing
strong. -- Unholy Knights

Hombre and Fuchi Owned -- Welcome back, fight strong mi hombres. -- Gentleben and
Unholy Knights

Xorn -- I hoped you would have put up more of a defense but I enjoyed it anyway.  I
always enjoy seeing those open hand crits. -- Duchess of Erat

Pandera Pax -- Point taken...several times. -- Arabian Knight

Superiorbane --- You got lucky!  Luck or not you got the win and it was a good fight.
-- Ctuchik

Irn Bru -- I must say you fight the good fight, til next we meet. -- Beastier Wee

Holy Shiitake -- I am assuming there was an unscheduled name alteration before you
were allowed in the arena, a smelly cake perhaps?  Either way I think it was I that
stank in that fight. -- Viking Warlord
