                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Greetings, Shadowspire!
     What a way to take the throne!  On a blood feud up-challenge of 60 points!!!
One would think that I would receive more than 10 recognition points for such a
feat!!  But, alas, instead I get an invitation to ADM on my first turn as DM!
Perhaps they were trying to save my life, having only a 3 con?  Regardless, I am the
first Philanthropist to graduate from here, since my entire original team was killed
off within their first ten turns or so.  I was born from the first replacement rollup
from one of the first deaths here shortly after our first turn around turn 50.  I
began:  13-3-15-21-15-10-7, ST.  Turns out, I really love the QS after all these
years messing with DAs and such!  My challenge will go out to Chupucasuperior since
he is the recognition leader and I SHOULD BE!  It has been fun, Shadowspire!!  You
have not seen the last of the Philanthropists!

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon SHADOWSPIRE, 
for I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  THE RED BLADES?  Who?  BUBBA'S 66TH ARMY is 
the top team these days, buddies!  Perhaps it is BUBBA'S 66TH ARMY members' 
intannibility that enabled them to move from 17th to 1st last week...  (Less time in 
the sun...) The boys at MONSTER MANUAL aren't the happy-go-lucky bunch we all know 
and love, after suffering a 13 drop last week.  Thinking about sending their team 
manager to the Dark Arena is WARMASTERS, after suffering a 13 drop in ranking.  Rumor 
has it an incurable disease has swept the stable of AMERICAN MUSCLE.  Note their drop 
in the rankings from 9th to 21st.  Watch out!!!  The boys at CLAN LONGBEARD aren't 
the happy-go-lucky bunch we all know and love, after suffering a 14 drop last week.  
Say what you will about blind luck and dirty fighting, but LITERATE LOONS will tell 
you 255-283-11 is nothing to laugh at...  Practice pays for PIT FIEND, who pummelled 
ELTHOR, to pocket 28 points.  SILENT KNIGHT certainly had a baffled expression on his 
face, after losing to PORCUPAIN and losing 19 points in the process!  ONYB ENGLVAR 
found out being SHADOWSPIRE's Duelmaster isn't all nuts and berries, receiving 8 
challenges!  You could cut the tension with a scimitar as BLUE MARBLE of DRAGONBANE 
GUILD met the Duelmaster.  What can be a greater victory?  BLUE MARBLE has taken his 
place as the top, as SHADOWSPIRE's new Duelmaster.  So who's the team that's been 
walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the lion, so 
did the "warriors" in SHADOWSPIRE avoid OF WOLF AND MAN.  The warriors of OF WOLF AND 
MAN found their efforts at combat frustrated as AMERICAN MUSCLE apparently had more 
important things to do than fight.  Place your bets!  A.E. HOUSMAN is the long shot 
of the week:  they challenged GOULASH, up by 38.  The gods smiled upon A.E. HOUSMAN, 
in his upset fight against GOULASH.  A.E. HOUSMAN gets a win, 13 points, and a free 
drink on me.  (Next week, OK?) '71 MACH ONE challenged SHAVIOLA!  Who says AMERICAN 
MUSCLE are just a bunch of wimps!  '71 MACH ONE of AMERICAN MUSCLE kept his wits as 
he was subdued by SHAVIOLA.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Death (in the 
form of PRONATE of CAPITAL CARTEL) knocked on ANGRY SALAD's door.  What will OTTO'S 
DINER do?  The suspense is killing me.  The audience gave a nice round of rasberries 
to LIFE PATENT of THE MONSANTIS, for expiring in such an ungraceful fashion.  7-9-0, 
indeed!  Congratulations, NATHAN.  The manager of LITERATE LOONS should have sent 
GRAHAM GREENE to the Dark Arena for having a 4-5-0 long ago.  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant prattling 
may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Can anything compare to the 
pleasure of writing Spyreports for SHADOWSPIRE?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- 
Novgorodny Vir

is your ability to beat me, you Cad! -- Pronate

thanks for the win, Hot Stuff! -- Limp In, Capital Cartel

The Userous Merchant -- I was lenient.  Next time I toss you in the gutter. -- Gutter
Ball, Capital Cartel

Tyger -- That is what you get for trying to play with the big boys. (wink) -- Punt,
Capital Cartel

Wee Tree King -- That was not as much fun as I expected because your defense and your
offense were too good.  (Your neutral was okay, though.) -- Bank Shot, Capital Cartel

Congrats to Onyb Englvar, Duelmaster of Shadowspire.  Name changes are cheap, you
know? -- Agent

Jorja -- Thanks for the great Spy Report.  We Capital Cartel types would welcome your

intelligently had no stock in CEO's company)

Angeroo -- Be sure to tell Grimm "hello" for me.  The guys in DM11 will be glad to
see him back.  They say they enjoy keeping him well below .600.  (wink) -- Agent

A salute to new Lord Protectors Onyb Englvar (he of needs-a-new-name), Fan Xhen, and

in the water. -- Agent, Capital Cartel
