                             Notes from the arena champ.

Fellow Shadowspirians!

     It is a proud day for me and for my stable, Jungleland, as I now ascend the
throne as the Duelmaster of the greatest of all arenas, Shadowspire.  Us
Junglelanders have been around every turn for a year and a half now, slowly working
our way up the ranks.  Since all the prodigies on the stable have been killed, it is
me and ol' Bobby Jean that have become the forerunners for our team.  Bartender is
not too happy about that, I can assure you.
     I still remember the day, though, 18 months ago, when I arrived in Shadowspire
for the annual scum showcase.  It was hosted by Bartender in his dive bar, the Stone
Pony.  Me and four other scum competed against each other by seeing who could stand
completely motionless the longest.  The competition was extremely stiff and we were
actually all drafted that day even though there were only two managers present.
Well, actually, it was one Agent and one Manager.
     The first four scum auctions went smoothly and the Agent and the Manager got two
scums each but when it was time for my auction a huge brawl began.  Catheters and
moose hats were flying about in the bar and eventually Bartender intervened himself.
I liked his style and when I learned that he was putting togheter a team, I decided
to join him.
     Speaking of Bartender, he is such a sucker for numbers and have told me to tell
you the following fun statistics:
     I am 16-3 against TPs and 10-9 against others.  Guess who I will be challenging?
     I have fewer skills than Rosalita had at birth and still no rating.  Guess I
will be around for a while, eh?
     I have close to ten hours on the sands.  That should be a record, right?
     Well, I guess I will be hunted pretty badly now that I have shown mu ugly snot.
And this column probably made me less popular than before but, let's face it, I have
no chance of being the popularity leader.
     My challenges, of course, will go to whatever scum is in Challenger Champs.
     Good luck to you all on the sands!

Duelmaster Outlaw Pete

P.S.  I will leave an hour glass on the throne when I leave it.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
SHADOWSPIRE.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  
Say good-bye to FUCHI OWNED, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the 
JUNGLELAND stable.  Take a look at ARCHAIC CHAOS' act, as they have a 4-1-0 week and 
gain 12 places in the team ranking.  Rising in the ranks like a loaf of armored bread 
(okay, I admit it's corny) is WARMASTERS, who swept up 14 places in the ranks.  Take 
a look at BATTLE GRUNTS' act, as they have a 2-3-1 week and gain 11 places in the 
team ranking.  Suffering under a 0-5-0 record and dropping from 11th to 25th place 
were the DETHKLOK.  Keep trying!  O' HOLY KNIGHTS is no joke as it posted a 5-0-0 
week advancing from 14th place to 7th place.  Hey everybody, watch out for CLASSIC 
NAPALM, who flew up 26 points in the rankings after mashing CYRIL WYRMSLAYER like a 
melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was 
KIRLUA NORIS, who dropped 19 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout 
with SUICIDE SEED.  Drawing on all of his experience as a 19-25-0 warrior, SINISTER 
SNOOPY went for the Duelmastership against OUTLAW PETE this week.  Going for the 
gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was FURRY FURY's SINISTER SNOOPY, 
who was turned away from the Duelmastership by OUTLAW PETE.  Can you believe they are 
paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Did you hear that CAPITAL CARTEL was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of CAPITAL CARTEL's warriors, I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may not 
be funny, but catch CORPORATE IDIOTS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be 
fairly deft at running from CAPITAL CARTEL.  Well just about everybody wants a piece 
of PANDERA PAX, who was this week's most challenged warrior.  Well, it looks like 
SAVIOR STRENGTH wasn't happy with last turn's rank, so he went for broke by 
challenging up 27 points.  No guts, no glory.  I heard SAVIOR STRENGTH laughed all 
the way to the inn as his new point total of 26 was posted in the arena.  I guess 
beating NATHAN really pays!  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, WEE TREE 
KING went after SNACKPACK, who was higher by 24 points.  Well, when the dust settled, 
WEE TREE KING beat SNACKPACK.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  This week 7-5-0 LUHAN was sent to the Dark Arena.  I know 
a lot of fighters with similar records who might take notice of this.  For those of 
you who missed it, Death showed up, grabbed HR by the ear and took her away to a 
place where she won't need a coat.  Yes, and another newbie bites the dust as TIAMAT 
goes down under the sword of FLACCUS.  Thanks to this, FLACCUS now has 40 recognition 
points.  Proving again that SHADOWSPIRE is not rated G, CLASSIC NAPALM of the LA 
PENTARCHIE slew the warrior CYRIL WYRMSLAYER in a rather bloody bout.  Let's look for 
a bloodfeud.  In the 'Oops, What Have I Done?' category, BOWTIE BOB was mashed by 
NYDERAWYN, who let BOWTIE BOB know that killing members of PHILANTHROPISTS is a 
no-no.  Congrats to BUNNY FOO FOO for revenging the death of hers teammate (but more 
importantly, feeding CREIDDY LAD a bit of dirt).  In the 'Oops, What Have I Done?' 
category, KILGORE was mashed by VELVETEEN, who let KILGORE know that killing members 
of FUZZY BUNNIES is a no-no.  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both 
yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the SHADOWSPIRE giving me the 'cut' sign (or is 
that 'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the 
world's best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been 
real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Fidget -- Adieu. -- Suicide Seed

Growler -- A bit of experience mismatch, I know.  Still, I enjoyed stabbing you
repeatedly.  The only profession where being psychotic pays off aye? -- Roundup

Tall Fall -- Sissy. -- Oakhurst

Wee Tree King -- You were exceptional in our duel.  But, no skills!  I guess that is
one more reason to avoid you. -- John F Queeny

Pickles -- Your challenge was politely deemed "perverse", but I prefer the word
"idiotic."  I guess your manager wanted a reason to bloodfeud, eh? -- Hippodameia

Erekek Zezerub -- That's a name for a lotion for treating camels' boils, isn't it?
Well, thanks for the skills, anyway... -- Tydeus

Luhan --  Other than hitting me once (while I was waving to my GF, thanks so much),
it WAS one-sided, don't you think?  And BTW, what's with all that armor?  Try
sunblock instead; you'll smell better! -- Patroclus

Punt -- Whoah Nellie!  I figured to win in the 2nd or 3rd minute, not in the FIRST!
Did you accidentally tie your sandals together again? -- Pandera Pax 

Spork -- Hhhmmmm.  An implement that can't decide whether or not it should be a fork
or a spoon...  The name fits you well, as you couldn't seem to decide whether you
should parry or run away.  Good thing your gender and style were picked for you. --
Aeneas

Nice mini-spotlight in the DM's column!

Punt -- Brown nosers don't get laid off, pshaw!  We get promoted after the non-nosers
get fired!  I could be around for a while! -- Office Brwn Noser -- everybody's
bestest best friend.

Magic Rat must be magic with all of these good match ups he keeps getting.  I really
don't like Rats in my office, even magic ones!  They chew up the paper, leave messes
on your desk and are over all nasty creatures. -- Office Brwn Noser Everybody's
bestest best friend except rats.

Charles Martel -- I don't make the rules, I just enforce the policies. -- HR

Well, 3-2 with a bloodfeud and one DA, it's almost miraculous!  But the new guy is
again crappy, and this first DA streak in our beloved arena is quite disappointing...
I could even regret the departed Four, an ambidextrous Basher dealing Tremendous 17-
9-20-15-9-3-11!  Why did I DA ?? -- LP

Well challenged, Murderface... I would have tried, too! -- Wonderface

Ting-Ting -- Well, darling, that was pretty impressive.  I wish I could have given
you a better showing.  Although crit parrying from my back goes a long way towards
fixing things for sure. -- Shaviola

Snackpack -- Not sure what happened there, bit of a messup on the strategy.  I
thought I was someone else apparently!  Too much booze! -- Benedict

     I have occasionally wished I was someone else.

All -- Yet another warrior to the Dark Arena!  Luhan was a freak that somehow got 7
wins pretty early despite only learning Init his entire 11 fights.  He was a Slasher
with the numbers 17-17-12-15-8-8-7, Normal End, Great Damage.  After 11 fights he had
8 Attack and 6 Dec.  Time to go! -- Tripwire

Elthor -- Blech, I need to graduate quickly, my manager is losing patience! -- Zevran

Madame Marie -- Nicely done!  I got my final train now on to skills for a bit! --
Archon

Pickles -- Speaking for the deceased Reigning Cain, I can tell you it was an awesome
fight and Cain died with great respect for you.  He was a hell of a teacher, but if
you knew him as we did, you'd agree he was somehow "put together all wrong." -- The
Chief (team manager)

Spymaster -- Unparalleled report last week.  It's jobs like that which make this
arena the best in Duel2. -- The Chief
P.S.  Georgia is safe, having defeated a 3-0 fighter the previous week, and hey!  Why
no commentary on my WINS?!?! :)  Thanks again for such a fantastic job!

     I'm still getting the hang of this place.  I recognize about half of you
     managers out of hand, and a lot of the others when I have the cheat-sheet handy,
     but not everyone.  Which team are you managing? -- Larkin

All -- I'm greatly appreciative of/for the warm welcome.  In my short time here (and
first in 25 years!!) I already recognize how far superior this arena is to any I've
seen.

     Absolutely.

Harold Angel -- Congratulations.  Your record may not reflect it, but you are
responsible for the kill on Titinius.  His loss to you resulted in his night fight
armed with a War Flail. -- Vanek, Manager of Warmasters

Benedict -- You're welcome! -- Petronius

Battle Grunts -- Welcome back. -- Vanek

Jorja -- Glad you decided to join us!  Welcome aboard! -- Vanek

Nomad -- Nice Duelmaster column.  Very entertaining. -- Vanek

Blue Marble -- No hurry out of here, huh?  But that's just the way I like it: slow
and dull. -- Outlaw Pete

Archon -- Last time you taught me five skills so the zero skills this time was a huge
disappointment. -- Madam Marie, 8 points higher but none the wiser

Bunny Foo Foo -- I would love to have heard the commentators twisting their tongues
around our names during the fight. -- Big Bones Billie

     From off side.  There was spraying.

A.E. Housman -- Random match-ups suck! -- Bobby Jean

Office Brwn Noser -- Didn't realize you got your brown nose from sticking your head
in the sand. -- Magic Rat

DM Outlaw Pete -- Yeah, your skills might not be at their peak yet.  And with that
train you don't seem to be eager to leave either.  Congrats on the title.  Blue
Marble is glad to never have to face you again. -- Blue Marble

Maceo -- Not enough avoids, that is all there is to it. -- Cyril

'69 Fairlane -- I've been seeing a few too many automobiles lately.  Armor just
doesn't cut it when confronted by a ton of steel traveling at 60 mph.  Ouch. -- Jager

Petronius -- Well, that was one more strategy tweak that didn't work.  At least not
this time.  Nice win.  How many more day fights do you think I can hope for? - Ziggy

A painful lesson learned.  When attempting to reach a milestone, never, ever, ever
post that milestone in the ads for the turn on which you hope to accomplish the feat.
It appears to be an easy way to guarantee an 0-5 record.  Ouch.  The gods can be
quite firm about such things.  Lesson learned.

     Damn straight.

All -- It'$B!G (Bs good to be back. I'$B! '(Bll try to be active with the ads.  To

Road Runner
P.S.  Anyone ever tell you that your manager is kind of weird?  Always referencing
himself as '$B!H'(Bwe'$B!H'(B.  Is that speaking in the 4th person or something?

Hombre -- Whut up?  Long time no talk.  Any word on Paulie or Indimar returning here?
-- Elephant

Spy Reporter -- Excellent job.  Keep up the good work.  I look forward reading your
words each turn. -- Elephant

     Thanks.  But only odd-numbered turns.

Outlaw Pete -- Congrats on the throne!  Next mile marker for you is your first
rating!  It almost makes you cry to see you all growed up... not quite ready to leave
your mother's bossoms yet but you will get there.  <sniffle> -- Gentleben and the
O'Holy Knights and the distant Ctuchik

Hombre and Fuchi Owned -- Hmmm... shouldn't your name be Hombre Owned?  Anyways...
congrats on taking the current top team honors, you have had a fine set of turns. --
O'Holy Knights

Jorja and Middle Way 12 -- Welcome to the party and we shall see what we can do about
that record of yours. -- Gentleben and O'Holy Knights

Larkin (and Jorja's hands) -- Another fine newsletter, you and your borrowed hands
are most enjoyable. -- Gentleben
P.S.  You don't have any more helpful hands around do you?
P.P.S.  I do not mean the helpful hamburger helper hand either?

     I wish!  With an extra set of hands maybe you could get a spy report every turn.
     But Crysalis has a prior claim.

Alps Arslan -- As enjoyable a read Gentleben said that fight was he was most unhappy
with the last five lines... and he was hoping you would have taught better... but
then I didn't so... -- Stalking Stuffr
P.S.  You have Ben put on the "Coal" list, whatever that means.

Titinius -- Thanks, I was hoping for that fight as well, guess I didn't need to use a
double challenge on you. -- Harold Angel

John F. Queeny -- Kings beat Queens in most games. -- Wee Tree King

Flaccus -- Is that like muccus or phlegm like substance, either way you have silenced
me for yet another turn.  Keep your eyes open and your back to the wall. -- Silent
Knight

Deepthought -- Right back at ya. -- Gentleben

Lizard Man -- You fight pretty good for a lizard but not so good for a man, so next
time just... -- Savior Strength

Porcupain -- Tell your boss my boss said no. -- Silent Knight

Master Darque -- I've been playing this game for nearly twenty-five years, I remember
the REAL arenas.  As to challenges and avoids... some days it's all I can do (this is
one) to get personals written.  But we'll see. -- Jorja

Bartender -- That's good, because I seem to have a Middle Way team here now. -- Jorja

Goulash -- We join Otto in congratulating you.  It's probably the garlic. -- Jorja

Nomad -- Thanks.  Hmm, if I write enough "thank you" personals, do I have to do
"fight" personals, too?

     Yes.

Gentleben -- Thanks. -- Jorja

Vanek -- Thanks.  I think I remember you from... Dayla Kiv, maybe?  An arena now
sadly depleted.  I'd say, "Come back to Lirith Kai," but what would be the point? --
Jorja

Hmm, Middle Way 12... that was a LONG time ago.  Five years?  No time for a spotlight
today, but I'm making a note for next time. -- Jorja

It appears that we should congratulate Limp In, Elthor, and Ting-Ting, new graduates.
-- Jorja and the Middle Way

Jaklak -- An unexpected but welcome win for me to begin with.  Sharper competition
than we ever saw on Noblish Island, too!  This is good.  Some of us won't survive,
but those who do will be the better for it. -- Nin Quayne

Victor -- The Power of Names works in your favor.  Ouch. -- Lugg Opar

A Userous Merchant?  Cheese louise!  A standby on my first fight here? -- Kirlua
Noris the slightly disappointed
P.S.  Only slightly, because it IS a win.

HR -- Yeah, well, I blame it on the Commission.  If they hadn't declared me a golem,
of all idiotic things, I would have been more "up" for that fight. -- Malle Pennelis
P.S.  Which you did well.

Col. Kurtz -- Hmm, I see you're Ratani.  You guys over in Ratan never did appreciate
us Rirorni.  But we can get past this, I'm sure. -- Poli Sarchis

18 March 11
All -- Be aware of the comeback of the Cajun and his stables of gladiators!  Just
sayin' -- The Cajun
