                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

     After last week's fights, the Monster Manual team never made it back to their
lodgings and were lost for over a week.  Witnesses report they saw the five riding in
their caravan wagon when a bright light flashed and a giant spinning disc appeared
before them. The wagon entered the portal and vanished as it closed behind them.
     Their manager, Deep Thought, was distraught over their disappearance and
consulted the United Sorcerers Portal Service for information.  The U.S.P.S., who
provide transportational Gates for long travels, knew of no unauthorized openings of
any Portals and closed the matter.
     Nearly an hour before the Monster Manual's next fight, another Gate opened in
the team's stable, all five spilled out, and the portal closed.  There was no time
for questions as the team had to rush to sign in for the week's fights at the arena.
     This is not the end of it, as a full investigation will be underway after this
turn, and any information from other managers would be appreciated.  There seem to be
Wizards working outside of the guilds, but for whom, and what is their agenda?

                                                         Deep Thought

                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hail Shadowspire!
     I am well pleased to greet you once again as your Champion.  Blue Marble was
going to get that same strat on my challenge as well, so that worked  out as I
intended, if not how I expected.  I roll with TPs pretty well, generally speaking.
Speaking of which, I'm hitting up Outlaw Pete this turn.  I figure Xorn will pay me a
call if he wants another round.
     Chupu, I didn't avoid so you probably have a decent shot at me this turn.  Good
luck.  I avoided the AB and the SL this turn.
     Congrats to Azaghal on the recent invite.  I don't remember if I mentioned that
last turn.  There's a reason I rock the full helm.
     It was nice to see the throne receive the most challenges last turn.  I would
expect the same again this time.  This is a fun town.

Kid Charlemagne, your Duelmaster

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hey, guys!  This is by way of being my favorite arena, reminds me of the good
old days when gladiators were fighting men and not tourney competitors, so when I
found I had a few minutes free today, I figured I would do you a spy report.  Sixty
fights, thirty-five total challenges (including the Dark Arena challenges and the
bloodfeuds).  I love this arena.  It isn't a bit like those losing propositions on
the Isle with maybe eleven fights that you can write about on the back of an
envelope.  Nope, this is the real stuff.

     So, first for those bits of information that Novgorodny Vir saw fit to include
in his pathetic report:  Beserker of Monster Manual moved up in the rankings farther
than anybody today, twenty-one points.  Same fight, August dropped the farthest by
losing to Beserker, going down twenty-four points.  It was a hot fight, which is
confusing on a cold day like this--all that steam made it hard to follow the action.
Here is the fight:  AUGUST (81-1212) (19-9-1,108) of SUMMERBORN fought BERSERKER (81-
1047) (15-24-2,88) of MONSTER MANUAL.  AUGUST was vanquished by BERSERKER in a 1
minute one-sided bout.
     Of Wolf And Man was, or were, most avoided, and Warmasters most avoided them,
having other fights to pick.
     Beastier Wee got the most challenges but declined to open a fast food joint.
For that, many thanks.  Food should be approached at a deliberate pace, with planning
and patience.

     Back to my own notes:  Sixty fights, I didn't count the standbys, they're
boring.  A total of thirty-five challenges, six of them DA challenges and three
bloodfeuds, leaving twenty-six basic, everyday challenges.  None, of course, were tv
challenges.  Perish the thought!

A quick zip through the Dark Arena fights:
     001 (81-1489) (0-0-0,0) of BUBBA'S 23RD ARMY DA challenged MOUNTAIN TROLL (81-
18) (0-0-0,40) of DARK ARENA.  001 was butchered by MOUNTAIN TROLL in a popular 1
minute bloody Dark Arena duel.
     002 (81-1490) (0-0-0,0) of BUBBA'S 23RD ARMY DA challenged SHEWISH GIANT (81-21)
(0-0-0,55) of DARK ARENA.  002 was murdered by SHEWISH GIANT in a 1 minute Dark Arena
competition.
     003 (81-1491) (0-0-0,0) of BUBBA'S 23RD ARMY DA challenged MOUNTAIN TROLL (81-
18) (0-0-0,40) of DARK ARENA.  003 was viciously butchered by MOUNTAIN TROLL in a 1
minute Dark Arena contest.  Looks to me like somebody, would that be Bubba Ganoosh?,
is not pleased with his first recruits.
     BEHOLDER (81-1437) (0-4-0,4) of MONSTER MANUAL DA challenged BANDIT PRINCE (81-
25) (0-0-0,60) of DARK ARENA.  BEHOLDER was murdered by BANDIT PRINCE in a 2 minute
gruesome Dark Arena fight.  Two minutes?  It actually took the Bandit Prince TWO
minutes to off this loser?
     CHINGACHGOOK (81-1371) (2-9-0,15) of FAR TRAVELERS DA challenged BLACK ORC (81-
20) (0-0-0,60) of DARK ARENA.  CHINGACHGOOK viciously butchered BLACK ORC in a
exciting 3 minute Dark Arena duel.  Looks like somebody didn't want to go, eh?
     ASSERIUS (81-1377) (3-7-0,16) of WARMASTERS DA challenged WURM KIN (81-27) (0-0-
0,50) of DARK ARENA.  ASSERIUS was butchered by WURM KIN in a 1 minute Dark Arena
fight.  The Wurm Kin wastes no time.

Other deaths, these in random matches:
     ALABAMA KUSH (81-1483) (1-0-0,20) of BUBBA'S 23RD ARMY fought SIS BA-NETERU (81-
1488) (0-0-0,0) of THE RED BLADES.  ALABAMA KUSH was savagely slain by SIS BA-NETERU
in a 2 minute novice's brawl.  Not a good day for Bubba's Army.
     PORCUPAIN (81-1453) (0-3-0,3) of FURRY FURY fought TAINTED SAINT (81-1472) (0-1-
0,1) of UNHOLY KNIGHTS.  PORCUPAIN slaughtered TAINTED SAINT in a 1 minute gory one-
sided struggle.  It was probably the taint.  Not acceptable, you know.  Considering
the team, maybe the taint was too minor?
     SUICIDE SEED (81-1402) (2-2-1,33) of THE MONSANTIS fought DICTATOR EXEC (81-
1444) (2-0-0,25) of CORPORATE IDIOTS.  SUICIDE SEED executed DICTATOR EXEC in a 1
minute one-sided battle.  Ah, I've had bosses I'd like to see that happen to!

Next, the bloodfeuds:
     GRAPE JELLY (81-1482) (1-0-0,11) of BUBBA'S 23RD ARMY bloodfeuded PETRONIUS (81-
1434) (2-2-1,10) of WARMASTERS.  Down 1.  GRAPE JELLY won victory over PETRONIUS in a
3 minute beginner's Bloodfeud duel.  This appears to be the only living member of
Bubba's Army, but at least he (or she or it) is victorious in this bloodfeud, and
against the odds.
     ANGER MOUSE (81-1347) (5-4-0,19) of RODENT CLAN bloodfeuded PRONATE (81-1320)
(12-5-1,109) of CAPITAL CARTEL.  Up 90.  This is insane, but apparently not suicidal.
ANGER MOUSE was handily defeated by PRONATE in a 2 minute uneven Bloodfeud fight.
Was this the Mousecall?
     JAGER VON DRACHEN (81-1341) (9-5-0,54) of DRAGONBANE GUILD bloodfeuded MARCO
POLO (81-1375) (8-1-1,59) of DARQUE AGES.  Up 5.  JAGER VON DRACHEN was beaten by
MARCO POLO in a 2 minute Bloodfeud brawl.  Hang on a minute, who said Marco could
ride that polo pony into the arena?  Don't we have rules here?

The regular challenges:
     BENEDICT (81-1470) (0-1-0,1) of OF WOLF AND MAN challenged MR WIGGLES (81-1477)
(0-1-0,1) of FUZZY BUNNIES.  Straight across.  BENEDICT overcame MR WIGGLES in a 2
minute novice's Challenge fight.  A wolf and a bunny, what can you expect?
     THE RIGHT HAND (81-1456) (1-1-0,17) of SUMMERBORN challenged ARCHON (81-1390)
(6-3-0,21) of OF WOLF AND MAN.  Up 4.  THE RIGHT HAND was bested by ARCHON in a 6
minute Challenge bout.  Six minutes--this Right Hand Man is tough.  Keep an eye on
him.
     ANGRY SALAD (81-1432) (2-2-0,19) of OTTO'S DINER challenged HR (81-1039) (6-5-
0,23) of CORPORATE IDIOTS.  Up 4.  ANGRY SALAD devastated HR in a 1 minute one-sided
Challenge battle.  I've had salads like that.  It's usually the onions.
     VELVETEEN (81-1431) (1-2-0,5) of FUZZY BUNNIES challenged TYGER (81-1421) (2-4-
0,10) of PAPER TIGERS.  Up 5.  VELVETEEN viciously subdued TYGER in a 3 minute gory
Challenge duel.  Oh, hey, this is a rich one:  Vicious rabbit subdues tiger!  I like
it.
     BANK SHOT (81-1471) (1-0-0,5) of CAPITAL CARTEL challenged ISIS BLOODSTONE (81-
1475) (1-0-0,11) of THE RED BLADES.  Up 6.  BANK SHOT luckily beat ISIS BLOODSTONE in
a 3 minute novice's Challenge bout.  I always thought a bank shot was what someone
did to the cashier before running out the dorr with the petty cash.

     ARABIAN KNIGHT (81-1445) (2-2-0,8) of UNHOLY KNIGHTS challenged LUHAN (81-1441)
(4-0-0,21) of OF WOLF AND MAN.  Up 13.  ARABIAN KNIGHT was subdued by LUHAN in a 1
minute novice's Challenge fight.  Oops, bit of a miscalculation there, Arabian.  It's
only in stories that you get to go 1001--nights or minutes either one.  Good thing,
too, because the lions aren't on top of their form today.  Ah, it's a new thing some
arenas are doing, a fight runs too long, they send out the lions to speed things up.
     EL CID (81-1443) (3-1-1,16) of DARQUE AGES challenged GUTTER BALL (81-1361) (9-
3-0,32) of CAPITAL CARTEL.  Up 16.  EL CID savagely defeated GUTTER BALL in a 4
minute Challenge fight.  Whoa!  Is this what happens to people who have their minds
in the gutter?
     BIG BONES BILLIE (81-1442) (2-2-0,13) of JUNGLELAND challenged EYE (81-1419) (2-
4-0,16) of PAPER TIGERS.  Up 3.  BIG BONES BILLIE overpowered EYE in a 1 minute
brutal uneven Challenge competition.  On balance, this might not be a great day to be
a tiger.
     HECTOR (81-1392) (3-5-0,15) of FAR TRAVELERS challenged HOLY SHIITAKE (81-1433)
(3-1-0,24) of OTTO'S DINER.  Up 9.  HECTOR was handily defeated by HOLY SHIITAKE in a
2 minute uneven Challenge bout.  Some people just can't handle foreign food.
     CEO (81-1040) (4-8-0,20) of CORPORATE IDIOTS challenged URMAR (81-1373) (4-7-
0,26) of FAR TRAVELERS.  Up 6.  CEO savagely defeated URMAR in a exciting 4 minute
gruesome Challenge melee.  That's a little odd.  I thought CEOs were great fans of
traveling.  Junketing around and all.  But maybe it's only their OWN traveling?

     HANA (81-1370) (4-7-1,23) of FAR TRAVELERS challenged LUKE WAYFARE (81-1413) (3-
4-0,33) of THE RED BLADES.  Up 10.  HANA was vanquished by LUKE WAYFARE in a 1 minute
one-sided Challenge fight.  You can't say Hana isn't out there trying.
     SMACKY BUNNY (81-1298) (5-12-1,28) of FUZZY BUNNIES challenged PUNT (81-1366)
(4-7-0,28) of CAPITAL CARTEL.  Straight across.  SMACKY BUNNY vanquished PUNT in a 1
minute one-sided Challenge match.  We have some tough bunnies in this arena.  Really
tough.
     VICTOR (81-1369) (5-6-0,30) of WARMASTERS challenged OFFICE BRWN NOSER (81-1114)
(8-2-0,36) of CORPORATE IDIOTS.  Up 6.  VICTOR overpowered OFFICE BRWN NOSER in a 2
minute gory one-sided Challenge match.  With a name like Victor, how can you lose?
(Let me count the ways....)
     PIT FIEND (81-1344) (8-5-1,49) of MONSTER MANUAL challenged MADDENED MEERKAT
(81-1134) (11-23-0,56) of FURRY FURY.  Up 7.  PIT FIEND vanquished MADDENED MEERKAT
in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge fray.  Was there something about this in the
personals?  I don't quite recall--the fights just keep going on and on....
     SUPVSR (81-1083) (6-5-0,44) of CORPORATE IDIOTS challenged CHARLES MARTEL (81-
1346) (7-5-0,50) of DARQUE AGES.  Up 6.  SUPVSR demolished CHARLES MARTEL in a 1
minute uneven Challenge bout.  It's the abbreviation.  It confers an edge while the
opponent--and everyone else, tries to reconstitute the title.

     SHILLELAGH TOR (81-1294) (10-10-0,43) of THE RED BLADES challenged CICERO (81-
1266) (12-9-0,49) of WARMASTERS.  Up 6.  SHILLELAGH TOR was overpowered by CICERO in
a 1 minute uneven Challenge fight.  Somehow I didn't expect this of Cicero, I never
pictured him as a fighter.  More of a talker, you know?
     PIZZARRHEA (81-1348) (7-6-0,34) of OTTO'S DINER challenged BEASTIER WEE (81-
1362) (6-6-1,40) of UNHOLY KNIGHTS.  Up 6.  PIZZARRHEA overpowered BEASTIER WEE in a
1 minute mismatched Challenge conflict.  This is the most-challenged Beastier.
     PIOTR COTTONTAIL (81-1352) (6-5-0,57) of FUZZY BUNNIES challenged ZEVRAN (81-
1258) (13-12-1,58) of OF WOLF AND MAN.  Up 1.  PIOTR COTTONTAIL was overpowered by
ZEVRAN in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge bout.  Rabbits and wolves again.
     ELILAD (81-1055) (14-8-0,66) of PHILANTHROPISTS challenged SINISTER SNOOPY (81-
1069) (15-22-0,72) of FURRY FURY.  Up 6.  ELILAD overpowered SINISTER SNOOPY in a 1
minute one-sided Challenge bout.  Well, of course!  It was the philanthropic thing to
do.
     CLASSIC NAPALM (81-1262) (12-11-0,79) of LA PENTARCHIE challenged NYDERAWYN (81-
1046) (12-11-0,83) of PHILANTHROPISTS.  Up 4.  CLASSIC NAPALM was luckily beaten by
NYDERAWYN in a 2 minute master's Challenge brawl.  Is there a post-classic or
modernist napalm?  Horrible thought.

     DUCHESS OF ERAT (81-1234) (15-14-0,88) of UNHOLY KNIGHTS challenged ELTHOR (81-
1237) (18-11-0,119) of CLAN LONGBEARD.  Up 31.  I think, my math isn't the hottest
here.  DUCHESS OF ERAT was defeated by ELTHOR in a 1 minute expert's Challenge
struggle.  Ah, heck.  I like the Duchess.  She's got style.  Class.  Great bazongas.
     CYRIL WYRMSLAYER (81-1267) (12-10-1,79) of DRAGONBANE GUILD challenged A.E.
HOUSMAN (81-1306) (12-6-1,87) of LITERATE LOONS.  Up 8.  CYRIL WYRMSLAYER handily
defeated A.E. HOUSMAN in a 1 minute Challenge conflict.  Does this make Housman a
worm?  He doesn't look it.  I can't picture a worm in glasses, somehow.
     OUTLAW PETE (81-1200) (22-9-0,92) of JUNGLELAND challenged BLUE MARBLE (81-1030)
(23-20-0,95) of DRAGONBANE GUILD.  Up 3.  OUTLAW PETE viciously subdued BLUE MARBLE
in a 27 minute veteran's Challenge battle.  Twenty-seven minutes?  You guys are
damned lucky the lions were sick!
     BRIARSMILE (81-944) (14-16-2,105) of PHILANTHROPISTS challenged CARIEC TOM (81-
984) (22-25-2,125) of LA PENTARCHIE.  Up 20.  BRIARSMILE overpowered CARIEC TOM in a
popular 1 minute one-sided Challenge melee.  So long as the Briar doesn't BITE,
you're probably okay.
     GOULASH (81-1215) (18-13-0,92) of OTTO'S DINER challenged XORN (81-1015) (23-18-
0,98) of MONSTER MANUAL.  Up 6.  GOULASH savagely defeated XORN in a popular 4 minute
gory expert's Challenge duel.  Probably the onions, it's amazing how bad onions can
turn a dish dangerous.

For the title:
     FAN ZHEN (81-1288) (12-6-1,97) of DARQUE AGES challenged KID CHARLEMAGNE (81-
1193) (17-15-2,121) of THE RED BLADES.  Up 24.  FAN ZHEN was subdued by KID
CHARLEMAGNE in a 2 minute Challenge Title competition.  A bold try, but the Kid is

My Goodness!  I must salute the two managers of the following fight "THE SUPERIOR CAT
was viciously subdued by OUTLAW PETE in a 34 minute Challenge fight." for the quality
of their presentation in Shadowspire.  Uh, kudos. -- Agent, Capital Cartel

     That did not come off quite as it should have.  After fifteen minutes, there
     should have been lions.  But the steward tells me that the lions "had taken
     cold."  Bah.  He should get polar bears, then! -- Arenamaster Jame Rinvar
     P.S.  Finding good staff is impossible.  Nobody seems to have any initiative.

Archaic Chaos -- You little chicken dung!  You pile of bull manure!  You "bow out"
this turn to avoid my bloodfeud!  You are nothing but the lowest of cretins and a
yellow-bellied skunk to boot!  Not only is this action pure suck on your part, but it
defies the expectations of the environment of Shadowspire.  You LOUT! -- Agent,
Capital Cartel

Little Chicken Dung Archaic Chaos -- Swish demands to be bloodfeuded, and Hippodameia
is a marked, marked srybaby. -- Agent, Capital Cartel

Kid Charlemagne of The Red Blades -- We salute you as a fine, fine Duelmaster. --
Agent and The Capital Cartel

Fan Zhen of Darque Ages -- Allow me to put this simply--you fought much better than
I.  I salute you. -- Limp In, Capital Cartel

A.E. Houseman -- I really called on you for an update in poetry, but I guess you
thought I wanted to fight?  Well, lucky me, but I surely missed the reading. --
Pronate, Capital Cartel

Urmar -- If you traveled far for that, I feel sorry for you.  (wink) -- Gutter Ball,
Capital Cartel

Hectar -- I could say the same, but rather, I shall thank you for the win and not
having to punt. -- Punt, Capital Cartel

Hey, Mr. Wiggles, I am not sure how that happened, but my last second shot somehow
went in. I feel like quitting while I am ahead. -- Bank Shot, Capital Cartel

Isis -- Nicely done, caught me in my defensive posture!  I shall see you soon. --
Benedict

Asserius -- I think that was more of a strategy win than anything else. -- Luhan

Classic Napalm -- Ugh, not sure how much longer I can stand losing. -- Zevran

Shillelagh Tor -- Shesh, after that first swing I was a bit nervous but after that,
not so much. -- Shaviola

Graham Greene -- Nicely fought, you dang near out lasted me. -- Archon

Current Top team!  Yes, the drinks are on us!  It had been a long time without two
good consecutive turns... -- Le Pentarque

Congrats to the sturdy Kid Charlemagne.  We do have a lot of Kings fighting with us
in glorious Shadowspire!

Charles Martel is good, yes... -- Zog, clobbered

That was funny, Bobby Jean, but I could be avoiding! -- Tom

Jager von Drachen -- I am the perfect CEO...I come in, I take over, I make a mess of
everything and then I leave.  But before I do I also take away your health care, your
benefits and I make you work for less.  It's my job! -- CEO

Heinrik -- Glad I could help!  Do you need me to get you some coffee?  How about a
donut or maybe I could shovel your driveway in my spare time after work?  You just
let me know. -- Office Brown Noser

Punt -- I carve my own way.  I don't need the big boss!  You need anything while I'm
here?  I can sharpen the pencils for you or polish your armor?  Maybe you'd like me
to sharpen your weapons? -- Office Brown Noser

All -- Sorry those Corporate Idiots missed the last turn.  Ye know how those
Corporate types be... always be going on vacation, never put time in at the office
and always be makin everyone else do their dirty work. -- Owsly

So long everybody!  I had a great time here in the Spire! -- Lord Protector Azaghal

Kid Charlemagne -- I got my shot!  You have no idea how happy the boss would have
been to see me pick up 5 politcal points!  And I really thought I was going to win
that fight, right up to the time when you put me on my rear.  Ouch. -- Blue Marble

Marco Polo -- Well, I guess that means I won't be the first of this style to
graduate.  And I'd had such a nice start.  Now, which of these Guildmembers took it
upon themselves to avenge me? -- Ghostly Irn Bru

Magic Rat -- What is it you said?  "Guys like you tend to avoid guys like me?"  Yeah,
that. -- Cyril

Pizzarhea -- Okay, I won the fight, which is cool.  But that name alone may have
ruined my favorite food forever.  I mean, really, did it have to be pizza?  Glad I
won, serves you right for giving the Za a bad name! -- Jager von Drachen

Pronate -- Although the random killing of Brick Mouse was unfortunate, it wasn't
nearly as unfortunate as its replacement.  On the upside, I couldn't have chosen a
better manager's mousetrap to wander into.  Expect a Mousecall shortly. -- Rodent
Clan

     Good line.  I may use that. -- Larkin
     P.S.  With proper credit, of course.

DM Kid Charlemagne -- Two DA kills and 2 times on the throne... I guess Bill does
like you now!  Congrats on the successful defense of the throne!  The Duchess is
going to see if she can unseat ya though, no offense you see... it's just business.
-- Gentleben

Bill the Bard -- DM and Team on the move and looking good for the three turn next
turn, good show. -- Gentleben

Bubbaganoosh -- Welcome the the sands of Shadowspire. -- Gentleben

Cicero -- You got lucky that time, punk. -- Beastier Wee

Kiss My Grits -- They have been kissed. -- Ctuchik

Grape Jelly -- I am more of a peanut butter guy, myself. -- Arabian Knight

APL Arslan -- So you come from the land of Arses?  That would explain a few things.
-- Tainted Saint

Xorn -- Nice fight. -- Duchess of Erat

Le Pentarque -- "When are we going to see a PS upstairs?"  Probably as soon as one
can stay alive long enough to make it up there or in other words, a very long time
from now. -- Gentleben

Nyderawyn -- Well fought and congrats on the rating. -- Fimnar

Evelyn Waugh -- Ummm, miss, the arena is no place to become hotly engaged. -- Elthor

     I liked it. -- Arenamaster Jame Rinvar

Office Brwn Noser and Maddened Meerkat -- Almost half my wins have come from you.
Thanks! -- Heinrik

Bowtie Bob -- That bow tie your are wearing is ridiculous! -- Maryanna

Dictator Exec -- If you were going to rape me for skills, you could have at least let
me win.  Jeez, no manners! -- Jaklak

Chupucasuperior -- You have obviously paid off someone in the commission. -- Fimnar

     Someone who isn't sharing. -- Rinvar the Annoyed

Goulash -- Not a favorable match-up for you, congrats on the rating. -- Elthor

Maceo -- It was pure dumb luck, well fought. -- Naryak

The Right Hand -- I foresee pain and blood in your future. -- Jaklak

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

Ligdish Bang -- Now, that was a brawl of the Big Boys, but you are no match for a Pit
Fiend.  Your weakness is your philanthropy, no one gets anything from me unless they
take it by force.  Few have tried and lived. -- Pit Fiend

Beholder loses to Eye -- The irony itself warrants a trip to the dark arena. -- Deep
Thought

Duchess of Erat -- REVENGE, REVENGE, REVENGE is sweet, think I'll feast on Duchess
meat. -- XORN
