                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, SHADOWSPIRE?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, SUMMERBORN, since THE 
WILLBURYS II took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  If this keeps 
up, FURRY FURY, you'll have to shine swords instead of use them.  A drop of 5 in the 
rankings?  LA PENTARCHIE turned their 5-0-2 turn into a 2nd place rank in the 
listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Gee, I'm 
impressed, a 4-1-0 is nice, but don't get cocky, DARQUE AGES, the Fates teach 
humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see 
ANGEROO win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, KNUT SUNDERHELM beat 
ODDJOB and ODDJOB lost 13 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  ZIGGY PIKE challenged 
SHADOWSPIRE's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And it's out with the old, in 
with the new, as ZIGGY PIKE takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old 
Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you 
this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, SHADOWSPIRE?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  CULT OF 
BACCHUS, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team.  
Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And it looks like LA PENTARCHIE avoided 
them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  DROW 
was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or 
feared?  Heh, heh.  I suspect either a 21 will or a 21 ego on this one, but MAXENTIUS 
has challenged up by 53 in an attempt against SUBPRIME RIB.  And The Welcome Wench 
has banned SUBPRIME RIB from service until next turn for losing to MAXENTIUS and 
giving him 30 points in the process!  Ha!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for SHADOWSPIRE's 
morgue.  More variety.  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  WASHSOUGAL, a glorious 5-6-0 
fighter, has passed away.  Gee, too bad THE WILLBURYS II.  And what a stunning loss 
we have here, boys and girls, GWENNOLAY of OF WOLF AND MAN has added the final loss 
to hers 12-11-0.  Tee hee!  Not that I'll be buying the drinks, but I'll be glad to 
see GIGI DIVINE and CULT OF BACCHUS at The Welcome Wench tonight celebrating their 
bloodfeud victory over SNOW SQUIRREL.  We're all going to die in the end, so why 
worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in SHADOWSPIRE to get a drink than The Welcome 
Wench!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city 
of SHADOWSPIRE.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are getting restless, I 
must leave now-- Snide Clemens

All -- Thanks for making Shay Redmoon the most popular warrior, in terms of
challenges, last turn!  Too bad Grimm had to go and kill her off so she can't
replicate the feat! -- DeGotti

Tammerlane -- Thanks for all the skills!  That expert in Parry will come in real
handy!  Laaaaame! -- DeGotti

All -- Thanks for the increased skill learns last time out! -- DeGotti

Let's get more active in the PAs people and try to draw some new blood or draw some
returning blood to the sands of Shadowspire!  This is one of the toughest arenas
around!  I take pride that I have a winning record here because it is so tough and
I'd like to keep it that way! -- DeGotti

LP -- Thanks for the welcome back!  Never thought that french doors wouldn't be a
common term! -- DeGotti

Grimm -- I guess that's how you welcome someone back in "bloody" style! -- DeGotti

Sumner -- I think the gladiatorial committee needs to drug test you for PEDs!  One
shotting Jax is a difficult task! -- DeGotti

Hippogriff -- Sorry about that last tremendous cutting attack.  That may have been a
bit over the top. -- Redfang

Ingrat -- Thanks for the skill lesson and for my first win. -- Bonesnapper

Orting -- I am really looking forward to not fighting you again this turn.  I had to
run laps after collasping in minute 11. -- Troll Hand

Black Prince -- Fun fight.  Thought I had you in minute 1.  Things fell apart after
that. -- The Great Goblin

Agorix -- I would describe you weapon use as more than marginally effective.  I gotta
quit smoking too... -- Earcutter
