                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

     Havoc rode out of the deep forest at an easy, loping gait.  After three days in
the saddle he was more than ready for a good meal and a soft bed.  The forest trail
was just wide enough for a wagon, but it widened as it came to the base of a small
hill.  He reined in his horse and slowed it to a tired walk as six warriors stepped
into the trail.  The first three wore lacquered leather armor of deep blue, with gold
lines etched along the edges.  They peered hard from under bright steel helmets,
domed and ornately decorated; thick-bladed shortswords dangled from wide belts.
Sturdy spears with wide barbs at their tips offered a wicked glint of grim humor as
they caught the sun.  Havoc's eyes narrowed and he stopped the horse.
     The other three warriors wore ringmail and polished helm; a wide, well-packed
quiver hung over each man's shoulder.  They spread out across the trail, about three
meters behind the spearmen, readying their short recurve bows and coolly appraising
their distance.
     "State your business!" barked the closest spearman.
     "Aw, c'mon..." Havoc growled.  "You can see it's me, Gant!"
     Gant sighed and lowered his spear slightly.  "Damn it, Havoc! Ya know we gotta
go through the procedures!"
     "Whatever..." Havoc rolled his eyes and raised his arms up and away from his
sides.  The reins dangled from his right hand.  "I'm just here to visit the Box.
Again. Okay?"
     "We just gotta see yer coin," rumbled Gant.  "New rules."
     Havoc tilted his head and frowned.  Gant tilted his head and shrugged. Gently,
he waved the glittery tip of his spear for emphasis.  With a muttered curse, Havoc
reached back with his left arm and fumbled with the straps of his saddlebag. He
pulled out a small sack and tossed it at Gant, who made a deft catch.  He tucked it
into his belt and made a sign; the men melted back into the edges of the trail.
     "Aren't you going to check that?  Count it?"
     "Naw," grinned Gant over his shoulder as he ducked under a branch.  "I trust
ya!"
     "Stupid security..." Havoc muttered to himself as he urged his horse forward.
The horse shambled up the hill and then down into the circular courtyard in front of
Pandora's Box.  A tall statue and fountain were facing the front of the tavern.  Two
rough tracks separated here; one went to the left and small fortress of a building.
The other led to the right, and around behind the tavern, ending at the stable.
Small knots of men and women in lacquered blue leather armor, carrying various
weapons, were spread throughout the area.  One came forward; he wore a large
broadsword across his back.  He waved and gestured.
     Havoc nodded and swung off his horse.  He handed the swordsman the reins and a
coin before he untied the saddlebags and draped them over his shoulder.  Then he took
a thick bedroll, wrapped in oiled leather, from behind his saddle and carried it
under his arm.  He patted the lathered rump of his tired horse affectionately as the
guard led it away.
     Glancing up at the second-story windows as he made his way to the tavern, Havoc
noted that the archers were still as vigilant as ever.  He ignored a brief chill as
he passed under their surveillance and pushed heavily against the wide door. A pair
of orcs, clad in scalemail and heavy helms, waited inside.  Their battle-axes seemed
sharp and ready; they twitched hopefully in the orc's hands as Havoc slowly and
carefully laid his saddlebags, bedroll, and sword on the scarred wooden counter. A
pretty brunette in a clingy canary-yellow toga came into view from around the rows of
shelves behind the counter.  The woman smiled brightly as she wrapped the items with
a purple felt ribbon, tying them off in a complicated knot.  She brought up a small
leather disc from under the counter.  The disc had a detailed painting of the same
knot the woman had just tied.  Havoc nodded appreciatively, tucking it into his belt
as the brunette picked up his things with a wink and a smile and disappeared down one
of the aisles of shelving.
     "I still got a tab runnin' here, don't I?" he called after her.
     "Um, yes sir," came a muffled reply.
     One of the orcs grunted a vulgar sound, but Havoc chose to ignore the innuendo.
He pushed through the door at the far side of the counter and walked through a loud,
long room lined with booths on either side.  He ignored the bustling staff as they
carried trays of food and drink to their raucous guests, and moved steadily through
the smoke and loud laughter and arguments and through the far doors.  He waved to a
few subdued, albeit rough-looking characters as he walked through this room as well.
He came to a wide flight of stairs and trudged up to a small landing that opened to a
short hall.  A closed door decorated in green and gold patterns, flanked by a pair of
elvish-looking guards, was at the end of the hall.
     Havoc handed a few coins to one of the guards, but each kept one hand on his
scimitar anyway.  However, they allowed him to pass and enter into a small, quiet
room painted a soft blue and trimmed in gold.  There were many small tables scattered
discreetly apart.  Only a few were in use.  Havoc moved toward a thickly padded chair
and dropped heavily into it with a sigh.
     "Really, Havoc, must you jostle the table that way?  Can't you even seat
yourself with some civility?" complained the Arcane Kid.
     "Spill yer soup?" grunted Havoc, gesturing to a petite blonde wearing another 
silken yellow toga.  The blonde glided toward their table.
     "A Gladiator's Special," winked Havoc. "And a couple of J.J.'s to start me off!"
     "Yes sir," smiled the blonde.  She glided away while Havoc watched
appreciatively.
     "Still drinking Jhelum's Justice?  Didn't I tell you?  It's so caustic it
eventually eats through the barrels!"
     "Yeah, yeah," sneered Havoc with a wave of his calloused hand.  "I told ya; ya
gotta drink it while it's fresh."
     The Kid gave a mild snort and shook his head.  The blonde returned, bringing a
couple of tall brown bottles to their table, then quickly drifted away again.  Havoc
picked up a bottle and hefted it; he held it up towards one of the bright lanterns
and watched closely as the liquid inside sloshed and bubbled.  A stopper was attached
to a wire, which was wrapped tightly around the long neck of the bottle.  With a
quick flip of his thumb the stopper was let loose.  The Kid turned his head away and
sighed as Havoc guzzled down his ale.
     "We have some business to discuss before you drink yourself silly," protested
the Kid.
     "Yeah, yeah," muttered Havoc as he set down his bottle.  "Y'know, I wasn't too
keen on this bottle business at first, but I have to hand it to 'em.  The way it
keeps it cold and fresh - I like it!"
     "Glad you're happy," sighed Arcane as Havoc popped the stopper off the second
bottle and began to swallow.  "What's the status of the new recruits?"
     "Hhhmmmphphph!!"  Havoc choked a little and slapped the bottle on the table.
The sound reverberated loud enough to cause one of the guards to open the door
slightly and peer discreetly inside.  A warning look from the guard and a smile from
Havoc and then the guard closed the door.
     "Kid, don't do that to me when I'm swallowin'!"  sputtered Havoc.
     Arcane shrugged.  "What about those recruits?"
     "You call those guys 'recruits'?  I had a better set of wooden soldiers when I
was just learnin' to walk!  This lot is pitiful!"
     "That bad, eh?"
     "Yeah, that bad!"  Havoc emphasized his statement by taking another healthy swig
from his bottle.  "I gotta wonder why we even bother payin' bribes at all!  It's a
disgrace!"
     "Hippodaemia might disagree," smiled the Kid faintly.
     "Yeah, well, Hippo ain't here anymore, is she?" grunted Havoc.  "All we got left
is Patroclus, Pandera, and that hot-head Aeneas.  And he ain't gonna be around too
long either, if I have anything to say about it."
     "Aeneas?"
     "Yeah."
     "Do you think that this is the time for it?" asked the Kid.  "We can't be
cutting our roster to the bone just because you're a little irritated with the boy."
     "Naw, it's more than that.  He's braggin' all the time to anyone who'll listen,
and all the time he's got this terrible record, and he ain't learnin'!!  Time for a
little more house-cleaning, I say."
     "I really hate this," pouted Arcane.
     "Huh!  Look, we had a good run there for a while," growled Havoc.  He tapped the
table with his bottle.  "We a good string of 3-2's and even a few 4-1's.  Our numbers
were gettin' better 'n better.  But hell -- it couldn't last forever!"
     "I realize that, of course," frowned the Kid.  "But still, I was hoping that
we'd have some fighters on board who could at least go as far as Challenger
Champions.  We haven't had anyone up that high in Shadowspire."
     "Not yet we haven't," nodded Havoc.  "But it'll happen.  Most of those fighters
have more than thirty fights of experience, Kid!  Ya don't just bust into the higher
ranks with any old group of grunts ya can scrape out of the streets!"
     "I know, I know."
     The blonde returned with a tray.  A large plate was laid in front of Havoc.  A
lightly seared bison steak, dark red in the center, sizzled invitingly.  It's juices
pooled and bubbled underneath.
     "Careful, the plate is hot!" warned the blonde.  She laid a large potato, loaded
with butter and chives, on its own plate next to the steak.  A token bowl of salad
sat behind a sizeable brown loaf of hot bread.
     The blonde disappeared again.
     Havoc grabbed his knife and fork and held them poised over his steak.
"Look, I'm glad ya got me out of there for the weekend.  After Hippo's passin' the
boys have been a little gloomy."
     "I'm just glad the blood feud worked out.  Too bad Patroclus didn't decapitate
the vermin! Do you plan on pursuing this any further?"
     "Can't decide," mumbled havoc as he chewed on his steak.  "I think we made our
point already.  That punk was beat good."
     "Maybe so, but wouldn't it be better to simply kill the offender?  Send a
message to the rest of the arena?"
     Havoc chewed thoughtfully for a few moments, then cleared his palate with a swig
from his bottle and began to attack the potato.  "Patroclus was challengin' up kinda
high, Kid; he was lucky maybe.  I don't know."
     "Well, do what you must.  I'll talk to my contacts at the guilds' convention and
see if we can't get a little help in the recruiting process.  I can't promise
anything."
     "Yeah, yeah," muttered Havoc as he mashed the potato into a lumpy amalgamation.
"What this needs is a little bacon."
     "Havoc!  We need to focus more on Shadowspire.  I've other problems I need to
deal with; I can't hold your hand or be of much help to you at present."
     "Tell me somethin' I don't know!"
     The Arcane Kid flinched, then pouted silently for a minute.  He watched Havoc 
demolish most of the potato, then return to his steak.
     "Well..." Arcane rubbed his narrow chin with a slender hand.  "There have been
rumors, of course, as always..."
     Havoc growled and shoved more steak and potato into his busy mouth.  The Kid
winced slightly and sighed into his half-empty bowl of vegetable soup.  He pushed it
away slightly and leaned back.  The blonde wisped by and the bowl disappeared.
     "First, it seems that the manager for Corporate Idiots has vanished."
     Havoc looked up quizzically from his plate.  Arcane nodded and arched his
eyebrows.  "Foul play is suspected, but there are... undercurrents... shadows of
shadows."
     "Stop trying to be so dramatic, Kid!"  Havoc motioned for another Justice; the
blonde must have been anticipating it.  She materialized and disappeared smoothly,
leaving another couple of cold bottles.  Havoc grunted, pleasantly surprised and
impressed. He popped the stopper off the bottle while the Kid clasped his hands and
looked into them for inspiration.
     "Well, it's hard to call this one," frowned Arcane.  "Owsley wasn't happy in
Shadowspire; that's a known fact.  Still, it is surprising to see him vanish.  His
team is in limbo.  If Owsley doesn't return and get his house in order, that team
will vanish as well."
     "On the bright side, our team moves up in the rankings!" chortled Havoc.
     "Yyeessss," nodded Arcane slowly.  "But I'd rather it were through effort and
skill than by attrition."
     "Don't be so picky, Kid."  Havoc sighed contentedly and pushed back his plate.
The blonde swooped in silently and carried it away.  "Got anything more? I'm about
ready to turn in."
     "So tired already?"
     "It was a long ride and I'm savin' up my strength for tomorrow."
     "Hhhmm."  The Kid eyed Havoc skeptically.  "You've been warned repeatedly about
harassing the girls here, haven't you?"
     "Hey! Yer not my mom!  Mind your own business!"
     Arcane raise his hands, palms out, in surrender.  "Just checking."
     "So let's wrap this up, 'kay?"
     "Certainly.  But this last piece of information is a bit more complicated than a
missing manager.  It seems that another manager has threatened to leave Shadowspire
due to some quarrel amongst some of the more senior managers."
     "Why not just kill off each other in the arena like men?" sneered Havoc.  "These
guys act like kids!"
     "This might actually work towards our advantage, you know."
     "Yeah?"
     "Think of it.  The managers quarrel; their teams suffer from in-fighting; their
weaknesses become easier to exploit..." The Kid rubbed his hands together.  "It would
be delicious!"
     "Yeah... but I wouldn't count on that too much.  There are lots of teams in
Shadowspire, Kid.  Lots of fighters.  It'll take more than a handful of guys with
knots in their panties to set up the kind of situation yer thinkin' about."
     "Still, there are definite signs of friction.  We would be foolish to ignore
them."
     "We'd be foolish to count on this 'friction', too.  The way I see it, if they
hurt each other, great!  If not, then WE hurt them.  Don't matter which.  They're in
our way, and that's gotta change.
     The Arcane Kid shrugged and pushed away from the table.  "Well, then there's not
much more to talk about, is there?"
     "Nope, I guess not."
     "Get me the numbers on the next batch of recruits BEFORE you decide to send them
to the Dark Arena, all right?"
     "Don't ya trust me, Kid?"
     "Do you wish to explain the bills I'm getting for new weapons and armor that I
KNOW you didn't give these miserable wretches before sending them off?!"
     "Uh, yeah... never mind."
Pandora's Box

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ahh, nothing studlier than getting the throne by default.  I feel that being the
best, is attained by avoiding the best until they leave, which in turn removes them
from the equation, which in turn makes me the best.  I'm sure my logic may be flawed.
To let other warriors feel this way, I have left the arena towards the dark forests
in search of a troll or giant to slay, or in worse cases, put 'ol greywand's
resurrection magic to the test.  I wasn't going to post numbers but oh well, it gives
people something to gossip about.  I was worried about others gaining an advantage if
the gladiatorial commission ever opens a new ADM arena for us *special* people, but
how different can my style really be?  I'm either going to go nuts offensively and
shred someone, or I'm going to go nuts offensively and get shredded.  Here are the
numbers:  11(+1)-5-10-15-21-16-7 Slasher, Hi-Mod, Battle-Axe.  Could be worse.  Good
luck to whoever lands on the throne, I do hope it's Road Runner though, I think he's
the best warrior in the arena. Now that I'm gone....

Bowtie Bob

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in SHADOWSPIRE a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets 
poor.  So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  It seems the training can 
make the difference, as FUCHI OWNED is pushed out of top team by AMERICAN MUSCLE, who 
came from 4th with a 5-0-1 this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for 
there are sorrows to drown for FUZZY BUNNIES, whose 1-4-0 this turn dropped them by 7 
into 18th.  THE MOTHERSHIP 011 stable has parlayed this turn's 3-2-0 into a 9 space 
move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 5th place.  Good work, guys!  The 
BATTLE GRUNTS guild has had a 5-0-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  
You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, '66 CORVETTE fought 
FIMNAR and gained 34 points and contributed to AMERICAN MUSCLE's 5-0-1.  NIN QUAYNE 
has lost to DOPPLEGANGER, falling 22 points, while helping make MIDDLE WAY 12 a 0-5-0 
turn.  This turn BOWTIE BOB Dark Arena Challenged MOUNTAIN TROLL in what was 
SHADOWSPIRE's Title bout.  Defending his title for another turn, BOWTIE BOB kept DARK 
ARENA's warrior, MOUNTAIN TROLL, from claiming the throne.  Can someone confirm a 
rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Warty 
Toad until they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  AMERICAN MUSCLE has cause to stand 
tall, as they were SHADOWSPIRE's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a 
team to beat.  And avoiding AMERICAN MUSCLE more than any other team we find LA 
PENTARCHIE.  SHADOWSPIRE, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  
Well, sports fans, take notice that NIN QUAYNE from MIDDLE WAY 12 was SHADOWSPIRE's 
most challenged warrior this turn.  PATROCLUS from ARCHAIC CHAOS took a risk this 
turn by bravely challenging up 29 points in a challenge against FIDGET.  And crowds 
were on their feet when PATROCLUS claimed a victory from FIDGET, and now has 83 
points for his efforts.  Building dreams on hope, MEAN JOHN BROWN challenged up 28 
points this turn to take on EYE from PAPER TIGERS stable.  And now nobody knows where 
EYE is right now, after giving MEAN JOHN BROWN 20 points worth of recognition.  As 
quiet chuckles rise behind me.  '68 ROAD RUNNER of AMERICAN MUSCLE had better have a 
good reason for challenging down 12 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought 
'68 ROAD RUNNER showed great skill and promise when he subdued NARYAK.  All right, so 
I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  The grave that FUCHI OWNED had dug for BOWTIE BOB may yet be filled with 
the body of MOUNTAIN TROLL.  Seldom are the likes of this to be seen.  BOWTIE BOB 
lives still!  A farewell moment, if you please, MACEO of FUCHI OWNED has been sent to 
the Dark Arena, and was carried out on hers shield.  The manager of HIGH ORDER will 
not be pleased to learn that KALRONATH, a 2-0-0 fighter, has been killed at the hands 
of THE MONSANTIS' PLAN COLUMBIA.  I guess it was coming sooner or later, CLAN 
LONGBEARD has lost FIMNAR, and SHADOWSPIRE is bound to miss him.  For a little while, 
at least.  WARMASTERS has lost PETRONIUS to the arena in the sky, but they don't seem 
to be worried.  What do you expect from 9-9-2?  The bigger they are, as they say.  
And what I say is that '66 CORVETTE had better watch out for CLAN LONGBEARD, seeing 
as FIMNAR felled he this turn.  Kudos go out to GROWLER this turn, for revenging 
BATTLE GRUNTS' bloodfeud against FUZZY BUNNIES' warrior TOTORO.  Well done.  The 
Warty Toad declares a free round for BERNADETTE and all of GFE, for having revenged 
HIGH ORDER's RAVEN SKYE for killing one of their comrades.  Is it really true that 
SHADOWSPIRE has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, SHADOWSPIRE, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in SHADOWSPIRE, but never good 
to wear out my welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and 
my pen sets to paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Tom Wolfe -- I won?!  You must have no offense; or defense; or neither?  Because all
I can do is... Punt, Capital Cartel

Howler -- Turnabout is fair play.  Oh, yeah! -- Hook, Capital Cartel

Harrison -- You challenged me?  You beat me?  I hate you.  Go get sick! -- Bank Shot

Now, Grimmy; what's new?  You have always been a villian!  Nice new tats, BTW.  And I
love the black armbands, too. -- Agent, Capital Cartel

68 Road Runner, sure.  You are probably still here because you supplinate.  Thanks
for the 'grats. -- Pronate, Capital Cartel Retired

All -- Well, I did not win my first, and despite all the advertising about me having
been a decent rollup, that was all crappydoodle.  Agent gets the cast-off rollups
after Tripwire apparently gets the pick of the litter. -- Duece
P.S.  And to you, Washsougal-- go suck a lemon!

     Tripwire litters?  We're trying to keep a clean town here!

Vanek -- We like nice guys. -- Agent, Capital Cartel

Jaklak -- Well I tried.  I really did not think I could out-defense you; but I had to
try.  Kudos. -- Gutter Ball, Capital Cartel (And not afraid to use gutter tactics.)

Congrats to all the graduates!
     Duelmaster BOWTIE BOB of FUCHI OWNED
     MACEO of FUCHI OWNED
     SINISTER SNOOPY of FURRY FURY
Hey, Bowtie, well done!  The way you won the title and all.  Nice strategy!  I could
use a guy like you working for me. -- Agent, Capital Cartel

The drinks are on me: top spot is back in my happy hands!  It could be a short stay,
though, with my youngsters climbing too quickly, and a new shadow rising... Elephant
has opened the DC box...  Interesting turns coming! -- Le Pentarque.

Surprising fight, Angeroo!  I guess you are not exactly what you seem to be... -- Zog

I want to thank all who welcomed us to the Shadowspire. -- Darkathias Dragonlord

Juliette -- Good fight, almost had you, but you got me in the end, good job. --
Galronias

Gwennolay -- Good fight, but I still ended up on top.  I think I will avoid you this
round just in case you have any ideas of challanging me again.  Maybe we should team
up in the future, we would be almost unstoppable. -- Kalronath

Gregory -- Nice try, but being short and stout has its advantages... such as great
stamina. -- Shelena

'77 Gremlin -- Wow, you really thrashed me.  I have been told to win soon or I go to
the DA. -- Marksky

Renton -- You gave me a thrashing this time but in the future it may not be so. --
Raven

All -- This round wasn't as good as last round but my TP is looking really good as is
my Parry Striker; we hope to better this round. -- Darkathias of High Order

Congratulations to Bowtie Bob on being Duelmaster and good luck in AD. -- High Order

Of Wolf and Man -- Congratulations for Shaviola going to AD and getting a win on her
way out. -- Darkathias of High Order

Grimm -- I agree, a surviving aimer is always an accomplishment, as off I go to
retirement.  [11(1)-8(2)-11-11(1)-21(1)-12(1)-17, ad. ex. att., ex. parry and init.]
Won more than I should've, but it is a pretty scummy arena, and I knocked off a
couple of strikers and even young lungers with a dodge in desperation strategy.
Thought I might've lucked out and been suited to dodge, but it turned out I have an
ability to use the slash tactic.  With a QS.  Go figure.  Only a slashing maul
would've been sillier. -- A.E. Housman

Naryak --
     So continued the issues of Naryack,
     Who to get up for a fight needed smack.
          He'd shoot up at the start,
          To insure he had heart,
     Not heeding Whitney's word, 'crack is whack'.
--A.E. Housman

Petronius -- I guess you were surprised by that result.  I've figured a few things
out since our last meeting. -- Mr Wiggles

Battle Grunts -- I was aiming for Leela's arm.  I guess my aim was off.  I feel badly
about missing my mark, but I didn't do anything to Leela that a troll or giant wasn't
going to do anyway.  If you're sore about her death, you know where to find me... --
Totoro

Mountain Goat -- What are you made of anyway?  Iron??? -- Bouncy Bunny

Bank Shot -- Let me put this into a language that one of your manager's friends can
translate for him:  Wowseroonie Skillarama Sixeriffic and Win-win-winser too!  If it
makes you feel any better, I wont make it out of this arena alive. -- Harrison

Elephant -- I was hoping more for the orange-sherbet colored pinto that provided so
many memories.  If I ever have to hear "Talk Dirty to me" by Poison again, I'm going
to pull a double Van Gogh.... -- Hombre

Elephant -- Now you've got me thinking... what year was the now infamous 'Celi'? --
Hombre

Shadowspire -- Maceo is my first Parry-Rip to graduate, and I've only made about 4
total if memory serves.  He is: 17-11(+1)-5-15-17-9-11 mod-mod, Shortspear and Lunge
tactic, and even though I didn't totally know what I was doing, he was a blast to run 
and did well for me.  I hope the RUGs keep blessing me with runnable replacements.
-- Hombre

TGG -- You're a maroon, a real L7 [unknown code] -- Hombre (who obviously doesn't
know how to start real feuds)

Fuchi Owned -- Thirteen-2 record, 2 graduates and the Duelmaster throne.  Pretty nice
run you're on!  Congrats. -- Vanek, Manager of Warmasters

Tripwire -- Nice Duelmaster column.  It will likely be a very long time until we see
another PR as talented as Shaviola in this arena, I bet. -- Vanek

Mr Wiggles -- Well done, sir.  That is not how I expected that fight to go down.  I
am still unsure if that was a fluke or you have just improved that much in such a
short time.  I may have to try a rematch one more time to find out. -- Petronius

The Monsantis -- Wow, you're a pretty tough manager to please.  I was surprised to
see you DA Oakhurst.  I thought he was supposed to be a pretty good warrior.  Guess
not. -- Vanek

Jersey Devil -- I love that name!  I suppose I am a bit biased as I am a huge New
Jersey Devils hockey fan.  Still, great name.  -- Vanek

Plan Columbia -- Nice try.  Feel free to try a rematch any time. -- Maxentius

Junebug -- Hey I swung! Nice! -- Archon

Tyger -- Hrmm I looked fairly decent there! Slowly but surely coming along --
Benedict

Bunny Foo Foo -- I was WAY too high in the rankings!  Nicely done -- Nikus

Kalronath -- Nicely done yet again!  I thought it was going to end differently than
the first time  but apparently not! -- Gwennolay

Sinister Snoopy -- Nicely fought.  The LS parries better than I thought it might. --
Shaviola

All -- Welcome Valak to the fray! -- Tripwire

RR -- Welcome to Shadowspire!  It's tougher than it looks -- Tripwire

     Nah, everyone here is a pussycat.

Welcome to all the new teams -- Tripwire

All -- Thanks for the congrats, I hope to bring glory to Shadowspire in the
tournaments. -- Shaviola

Sorry no personals today.  Really pressed for time. -- Jorja and the Middle Way
