can with your submission, but hal seems to have found it disturbing.  There are
pieces missing... I think. -- Shadowspire Arena Newsletter Editor

                              ShadowSpire Yellow Press

Happy 150TH Shadowspire!  Honestly, you don't look a day over 75 and we will stand by
that statement!  It has been a while since we have done a special report, and it is
long overdue.  At least that is what the finance department is shouting at me from
down the hall.  Something about we don't get paid if we don't produce a newspaper.
Who knew?  But anyway, enough about us and on with the show.

Due to space constraints, the SYP cannot cover every news-worthy story of the past
150 turns.  So, we have had to pick what we believe to be the most important.
Actually, we stuck a bunch of post it notes on Ricky the intern then threw darts at
him to get a few stories.

***Shadowspire Graduates:  In one hundred and fifty turns, Shadowspire has celebrated
the ascension of 160 warriors to immortality.  These graduates are shared among 33
stables.  Much has happened since our last update because Shadowspire now has a
graduate from all 10 styles, a feat that took much longer than anticipated to occur
(127 turns to be exact).
     Without further ado, here is all the relevant information concerning our
glorious Lord Protectors.

*Teams with Graduates:  La Pentarchie (15); Dragonbane Guild, Warmasters, Clan
Longbeard (12); Darque Ages (10); Literate Loons (9); Of Wolf and Man (8); Furry Fury
(7); Kellumbo's Kids, Fuchi Owned, American Muscle, Summerborn, Otto's Diner (6);
Rodent Clan, The Draugs, Capital Cartel, Monster Manual (4); Cult of Bacchus, The
Mongoloids II, The Red Blades, Ale House Mercs, Jungleland (3); AARP, Battle Grunts,
House of Hearts (2); 4-Letter Cavemen, Big Lake Outcasts, Huckle's Cats, Kathouse,
Unholy Knights, Philanthropists, Superior Forces NT, Archaic Chaos (1).

*Round Robin Leaders:  La Pentarchie, Darque Forces (8 styles); Dragonbane Guild,
Clan Longbeard (7 styles); Warmasters, Of Wolf and Man (6 styles); Literate Loons,
Furry Fury, Otto's Diner (5 styles).

*Graduates By Style:  Striker (33); Lunger (29); Wall of Steel (19); Total Parry
(22); Basher (14); Aimed Blow (12); Slasher (12); Parry Lunge (10); Parry Riposte
(6); Parry Strike(3).

*Best of Each Style:  This category is always a great source of controversy, which we
love because it sells papers.  We will give the top 3 warriors of each style, based
solely upon win/loss percentage at graduation.  Can it account for every variable?
No, and we submit that no system can, hence our choice of hard numbers over soft,
sissy opinions.  So let the debates begin!

Aimed Blow -- The Small Cat, 2-time TC, is undoubtedly Shadowspire's most famous
alum, but was he the best Aimer in the arena?  Numbers don't lie.  They don't
actually talk either, so just read what follows.

1-A. E. Housman -- Literate Loons -- (20-10-1) -- 66.67%
2-The Small Cat -- La Pentarchie -- (21-11-2) -- 65.63%
3-Balliol Blackmoon -- Dragonbane Guild -- (17-9-0) -- 65.38%

Basherb -- Basher has traditionally been a popular style in Sera.

The first Lunger graduate from Shadowspire still holds the best win/loss percentage.
Will some young upstart come along and dethrone him?  It hasn't happened in 150
turns!

1-'76 Gran Torino -- American Muscle -- (15-5-1)-75.00%
2-Lutherius -- Warmasters-(18-7-3)-72.00%
3-Dunnik -- Clan Longbeard-(17-7-0)-70.83%

Parry Lunge -- The days of Donatello are gone and the my performed well in
Shadowspire.

1-Flor -- Cult of Bacchus-(26-14-0)-65.00%
2-Evelyn Waugh -- Literate Loons-(25-14-1)-64.10%
3-Clara -- House of Hearts-(17-11-1)-60.71%

Parry Riposte -- Some say the Ripper style is an art form.  We are the SYP are not
too sure about such lore, but what we do know is that Rippers hold a few of the
highest win loss percentages in all the arena.

1-Holy Shiitake -- Otto's Diner -- (19-6-0) -- 76.00%
2-Shaviola -- Of Wolf and Man -- (22-7-0) -- 75.86%
3-Wee Beastie -- Unholy Knights -- (17-8-1) -- 68.00%

Parry Strike -- This is the easiest category by twenty-seven turns passed before the
first Piker graduate and to date there are only three.

1-Subprime Rib -- Otto's Diner -- (22-12-1) -- 64.71%
2-Marco Polo -- Darque Ages -- (21-13-2) -- 61.76%
3-Ziggy Pike -- Dragonbane Guild -- (16-19-0)  We say hogwash!

1-Fan Zhen -- Darque Ages -- (15-7-1) -- 68.18%
2-August -- Summerborn -- (22-11-1) -- 66.67%
3-Bowtie BobB -- Fuchi Owned -- (19-10-1) -- 65.52%

Striker -- Strikers are in season no matter the arena and Shadowspire is no diffe
Great warriors to have around.

1-Low and Away -- Capital Cartel -- (23-4-0) -- 85.19%
2-Rat-Loving Cat -- La Pentarchie -- (31-9-0) b  77.50%
3-Burm Wolfsnalf -- Big Lake Outcast -- (17-5-0) b  77.27%

Wall of Steel -- Ahh yes, the precious Wall Parry, the Waste is a common target for
the Aimed Blow.

1-Copernicus -- Darque Ages -- (18-2-0) -- 90.00%
2-Anvil Ironfist -- Dragonbane Guild -- (22-4-0) -- 84.62%
3-Consortium? -- La Pentarchie -- (21-7-0) -- 75.00%

That is all we have time fo

Turn 151.  If there is a particular topic you would like to see in the SYP, give us a
shout out in the newsletter and we will do our best to cover it.  Next turn, we will
take a look at death in the arena and the losers who decide to do It outside of the
Dark Arena.  Okay, okay, we will even talk about the ones that died in the Dark
Arena.

Til Next Time,

SYP Editor

                             Notes from the arena champ.

Happy Turn 150, Shadowspire!

     It is I, your permanent resident Duelmistress, Gigi!  <Giggle>  Well, I guess we
shall see if I fit into the 50 FE rule after this turn here.  I would love to stick
around and help DeGotti increase his win/loss record some more but the Gladiatorial
Commission will have last say unfortunately!  Martiln, Sorry to pick on you last
turn, sweetie, but I didn't think anyone would expect me to challenge you!
     How about that last turn for the Cult?  A perfect 5-0!  Three individual awards
and team on the move and current top team!  Not to mention that the Cult hit 200
wins!  What a wonderful way to lead up to this landmark turn!  <Giggle>  We
celebrated a bit too much and now DeGotti has to replenish his wine supply for the
150th turn celebration!  <Giggle>
     This turns fight is sponsored by Vanek's Crematorium & Pig Farm!  Your one stop
shop to get rid of your unwanted dead!  I've always heard be wary of a man who raises
pigs!  So I will adorn a V made out of 2 Troll fingers to my medium shield for
Vanek's sponsorship.
     Make sure to stop by the Cult's guild house for your free craft of wine in
celebration of this 150th turn!  I'm sure there will be fireworks and other parties
going on for the next week so lets keep the party going everyone!  <Giggle>

                                      SPY REPORT

     Turn 150, and some surprising circumstances.  Plenty of personals--at least, we
think those are personals in among the strange coding.  But... NO CHALLENGES!  Except
for two Dark Arena challenges, and they hardly count.

A brief look at styles here (you can find all this stuff in the back of the
newsletter, of course):                              W     L    K
STRIKING ATTACK        21         PARRY-RIPOSTE     20 -  13 -  0      61%
WALL OF STEEL          10         SLASHING ATTACK   41 -  30 -  2      58%
SLASHING ATTACK         8         TOTAL PARRY       44 -  34 -  0      56%
BASHING ATTACK          8         STRIKING ATTACK   94 -  79 -  3      54%
LUNGING ATTACK          8         AIMED BLOW        30 -  33 -  0      48%

Interesting, but is it illuminating?

     Casual notes from the golem:  Darque Ages went 1-4-0.  Not good, but maybe next
time, eh?  Apparently Savage Horde did well, but no numbers were provided.  Or, of
course, it could have been irony.  Edna Millay of the Literate Loons had the biggest
point gain at 23.  Tamerlane had the biggest loss, 22.  Dragonbane Guild were Most
Avoided, with Bond-Age doing most of that avoiding.  No one was most challenged.
     Forty-three fights, two Dark Arena challenges, no other challenges (very
strange), only two standbys on the sands (good!).

The Dark Arena:
     COMET BOY (81-1899) (2-2-0,8) of SEARCH THE SKY DA challenged ARENAMASTER (81-
23) (0-0-0,100) of DARK ARENA.  COMET BOY was butchered by ARENAMASTER in a 1 minute
Dark Arena fight.
     FURRY FAILURE (81-1917) (0-0-0,0) of WARMASTERS DA challenged DARK CHAMPION (81-
24) (0-0-0,60) of DARK ARENA.  FURRY FAILURE was butchered by DARK CHAMPION in a 1
minute Dark Arena duel.

The regular fights:
     MOONSTRUCK (81-1929) (0-0-0,0) of SEARCH THE SKY fought CONVICTED THIEF (81-1)
(0-0-0,5) of Fine Imported Standbys.  MOONSTRUCK devastated CONVICTED THIEF in a 1
minute mismatched match.  Moonstruck was least popular today, but I don't see why.
     MAYBE (81-1919) (0-1-0,1) of BRIDGE BURNERS fought WARG RIDER (81-1926) (0-0-
0,0) of SAVAGE HORDE.  MAYBE was subdued by WARG RIDER in a 2 minute beginner's duel.
To those who already have a loss, another loss shall be given.
     ROADKILL SURPRISE (81-1920) (1-0-0,20) of FURRY FURY fought PISTORIUS (81-1916)
(0-0-0,0) of WARMASTERS.  ROADKILL SURPRISE won victory over PISTORIUS in a 2 minute
novice's match.  And likewise to the victors, apparently.
     EYE OF THE DEEP (81-1923) (1-0-0,5) of MONSTER MANUAL fought NULLFEST (81-1928)
(0-0-0,0) of SEARCH THE SKY.  EYE OF THE DEEP was savagely defeated by NULLFEST in a
2 minute novice's competition.  This feels like it should have some hidden meaning,
but I can't see it.  Probably because it's too late at night--I had to wait for the
Hands.
     CABICHON (81-1914) (1-1-0,4) of LA PENTARCHIE fought LORD GOLDEN (81-1925) (0-0-
0,0) of FARSEERS.  CABICHON overpowered LORD GOLDEN in a 1 minute uneven bout.
Nothing like an experience edge.

     MISHAP (81-1906) (2-1-0,16) of FARSEERS fought THE CRISCO KID (81-1912) (1-1-
0,4) of OTTO'S DINER.  MISHAP was handily defeated by THE CRISCO KID in a 2 minute
uneven match.  Somebody greased the step under Mishap's foot.
     KENAI (81-1901) (3-0-0,19) of DRAGONBANE GUILD fought SEL (81-1924) (0-0-0,0) of
FARSEERS.  KENAI defeated SEL in a 2 minute novice's match.  No surprise here.
     SUMMER BAY SHOT (81-1884) (1-3-1,7) of SUMMERBORN fought TOBIAS (81-1927) (0-0-
0,0) of CLAN LONGBEARD.  SUMMER BAY SHOT was subdued by TOBIAS in an exciting 4
minute gruesome amateur's match.  Good work on Tobias's part.
     BLUE NOVA (81-1898) (2-2-0,14) of SEARCH THE SKY fought REGAL (81-1904) (2-1-
0,7) of FARSEERS.  BLUE NOVA vanquished REGAL in a 1 minute mismatched fight.  They
tell me a blue nova is especially hot, it looked that way on the sands.
     GRAVITY VORTEX (81-1895) (0-4-0,4) of SEARCH THE SKY fought MINT JULIP (81-1918)
(0-1-0,1) of SUMMERBORN.  GRAVITY VORTEX was handily defeated by MINT JULIP in a 1
minute mismatched match.  Mint julips make it possible to defy gravity?  This I've
got to try!

     AL ZHEIMER (81-1886) (4-1-0,26) of LA PENTARCHIE fought OSKSI NOBLE (81-3) (0-0-
0,10) of Fine Imported Standbys.  AL ZHEIMER overpowered OSKSI NOBLE in a 1 minute
one-sided bout.  Very good!  I wasn't sure he'd remember what he was supposed to DO
with that sword.
     KAMAL KHAN (81-1883) (4-2-0,29) of BOND-AGE fought HENRY MILLER (81-1846) (2-11-
0,17) of LITERATE LOONS.  KAMAL KHAN demolished HENRY MILLER in a 1 minute one-sided
fight.  It looks to me like Mr. Miller needs a change in strategies.
     PICKER (81-1890) (5-7-1,29) of BRIDGE BURNERS fought HITTIUS (81-1880) (2-3-
0,14) of CULT OF BACCHUS.  PICKER defeated HITTIUS in a 4 minute match.  Experience
again.  Amazing what a difference it makes.
     CAEDMON (81-1873) (5-3-0,26) of DARQUE AGES fought SKULLCLEAVER (81-1877) (3-4-
0,24) of SAVAGE HORDE.  CAEDMON was savagely defeated by SKULLCLEAVER in an action
packed 3 minute fight.  But Caedmon's skull was not, fortunately for him, cleaved.
Or cleft, if you want to be grammatical.
     SCIPIO (81-1900) (3-1-1,30) of WARMASTERS fought SYFTAR TRAFF (81-1876) (3-4-
0,17) of DRAGONBANE GUILD.  SCIPIO savagely defeated SYFTAR TRAFF in an action packed
3 minute brutal competition.  But which Scipio is this?  No, wait, I'm confusing
Scipio with someone else.  Sorry.  Long day.

     AGORIX (81-1842) (8-6-2,33) of WARMASTERS fought LONGFANGS (81-1881) (3-3-1,23)
of SAVAGE HORDE.  AGORIX beat LONGFANGS in a 2 minute fray.  Does this mean Agorix is
a dentist, or did he arrive with a wooden stake?  If you notice someone who has
sharpened the butt of his spear, it's a good guess that he expects to fight a
vampire.
     THE BLACK PRINCE (81-1841) (8-6-0,35) of DARQUE AGES fought CICADA SONG (81-
1911) (3-0-0,31) of SUMMERBORN.  THE BLACK PRINCE was vanquished by CICADA SONG in a
1 minute uneven bout.  And the Cicada made it look easy, too.
     REAVER (81-1879) (4-3-0,44) of SAVAGE HORDE fought ORTING (81-1815) (7-8-0,29)
of THE WILLBURYS II.  REAVER was unbelievably bested by ORTING in a popular 6 minute
brutal fight.  What I can't believe is that it took Orting that long.
     TRUTTS (81-1889) (7-6-0,53) of BRIDGE BURNERS fought THE DRONE (81-1862) (7-3-
1,49) of LA PENTARCHIE.  TRUTTS vanquished THE DRONE in a 1 minute one-sided match.
Someone had to do it.
     TOSSED SALAD (81-1686) (7-23-0,44) of FOOD fought VERITY (81-1907) (2-1-0,24) of
FARSEERS.  TOSSED SALAD was demolished by VERITY in a 1 minute one-sided fight.  I
never did care for rabbit food, but some people like it.

     INGRAT (81-1805) (8-11-0,45) of LA PENTARCHIE fought TROLL HAND (81-1825) (6-9-
1,28) of SAVAGE HORDE.  INGRAT was handily defeated by TROLL HAND in a 1 minute one-
sided contest.  Actually, it was the club in the troll's hand that really did the
job.
     IRWEHN (81-1785) (12-11-0,54) of CLAN LONGBEARD fought EDNA MILLAY (81-1834) (7-
9-0,30) of LITERATE LOONS.  IRWEHN was overpowered by EDNA MILLAY in a 1 minute
uneven fray.  This is the win that propelled Edna up the ranks.
     LADY GODIVA (81-1782) (15-8-0,54) of DARQUE AGES fought KALAM (81-1888) (7-2-
1,35) of BRIDGE BURNERS.  LADY GODIVA luckily beat KALAM in an action packed 4 minute
brutal fight.  And they call it luck?
     JOSEPH MITCHELL (81-1746) (10-17-1,66) of LITERATE LOONS fought BAD BORSCHT (81-
1894) (3-2-1,56) of OTTO'S DINER.  JOSEPH MITCHELL handily defeated BAD BORSCHT in a
1 minute mismatched competition.  Once the cream goes sour, the borscht is on the way
out.  Or so they tell me.
     REDDIG (81-1838) (12-3-0,58) of CLAN LONGBEARD fought STORM GIANT (81-1819) (9-
8-0,43) of MONSTER MANUAL.  REDDIG savagely defeated STORM GIANT in an exciting 3
minute gory bout.  Is Reddig's other name Jack?

     JULIAN OF NORWICH (81-1783) (11-12-1,58) of DARQUE AGES fought HOMONCULOUS (81-
1851) (7-4-0,36) of MONSTER MANUAL.  JULIAN OF NORWICH was overpowered by HOMONCULOUS
in a 1 minute one-sided bout.  Embarrassing, I should think.
     SORRY (81-1891) (7-6-0,66) of BRIDGE BURNERS fought GLABRIO (81-1800) (9-11-
2,65) of WARMASTERS.  SORRY devastated GLABRIO in a 1 minute mismatched brawl.  But
not, apparently, VERY sorry.
     SUMNER (81-1624) (13-11-0,82) of THE WILLBURYS II fought WORD THIEF (81-1849)
(6-4-0,57) of CULT OF BACCHUS.  SUMNER won victory over WORD THIEF in an exciting 1
minute fray.  If a pickpocket gets his fingers cut off, does a word thief get his
tongue cut off?
     ONION RINGS (81-1684) (14-16-0,77) of FOOD fought PASTA ALL DENTY (81-1837) (7-
8-0,61) of OTTO'S DINER.  ONION RINGS lost to PASTA ALL DENTY in a crowd pleasing 1
minute bout.  Food fight?
     CAZADOR (81-1578) (22-17-0,83) of DRAGONBANE GUILD fought RENTON (81-1623) (10-
14-1,62) of THE WILLBURYS II.  CAZADOR was viciously subdued by RENTON in a crowd
pleasing 6 minute master's bout.  Renton was the most popular warrior this turn.

     TURDUCKEN (81-1784) (11-12-1,80) of OTTO'S DINER fought BALTAIRE (81-833) (15-
15-0,87) of CULT OF BACCHUS.  TURDUCKEN was devastated by BALTAIRE in a 1 minute one-
sided battle.  And Baltaire was the overall popularity leader.
     ODDJOB (81-1766) (15-9-0,100) of BOND-AGE fought LITTLE DARLING (81-1700) (17-
14-0,110) of SUMMERBORN.  ODDJOB demolished LITTLE DARLING in a 1 minute mismatched
competition.  Oddjob was top slasher.
     BRUSSEL SPROUTS (81-1688) (15-15-2,92) of FOOD fought ZADIE SMITH (81-1701) (17-
14-0,89) of LITERATE LOONS.  BRUSSEL SPROUTS overcame ZADIE SMITH in an exciting 2
minute veteran's bout.  Brussel Sprouts were cooked too long, they'd overcome anyone.
     FISH TACO (81-1687) (19-11-1,106) of FOOD fought IRONHEAD (81-1722) (19-10-0,72)
of DRAGONBANE GUILD.  FISH TACO viciously subdued IRONHEAD in a popular 2 minute
brutal veteran's duel.  The very IDEA of a fish taco... ugh!  Iron head won't do it,
and I'm not even sure Iron Stomach would.
     ROSA KLEBB (81-1765) (15-9-0,109) of BOND-AGE fought FEOHR (81-1737) (14-14-
1,73) of CLAN LONGBEARD.  ROSA KLEBB vanquished FEOHR in a 1 minute one-sided duel.
Rosa is the top parry-striker, and she has received her graduation notice today.

     GREMLIN STEW (81-1710) (23-7-0,91) of OTTO'S DINER fought KNUT SUNDERHELM (81-
1569) (17-23-3,85) of DRAGONBANE GUILD.  GREMLIN STEW unbelievably bested KNUT
SUNDERHELM in a 5 minute expert's fight.  It's probably the mushrooms in the stew.
They looked dubious to me.
     TAMERLANE (81-1764) (14-11-1,104) of DARQUE AGES fought DROW (81-1774) (14-11-
0,73) of MONSTER MANUAL.  TAMERLANE was defeated by DROW in a crowd pleasing 1 minute
veteran's struggle.  Tamerlane got the big drop in points for this loss.  Drow is the
top aimed blow.
     MEDA (81-854) (21-7-0,134) of CULT OF BACCHUS fought NICK NACK (81-1750) (13-12-
2,106) of BOND-AGE.  MEDA devastated NICK NACK in a 1 minute uneven brawl.  Meda is
the top-ranked striker out of a large field.
     MARTILN (81-1742) (16-10-0,96) of CLAN LONGBEARD fought PURPLE WORM (81-1775)
(13-12-1,95) of MONSTER MANUAL.  MARTILN narrowly defeated PURPLE WORM in a 5 minute
veteran's fight.  Martiln is the steeliest wall.
     KRONSTEEN (81-1748) (15-10-0,102) of BOND-AGE fought JULIETTE (81-1630) (23-13-
0,82) of SUMMERBORN.  KRONSTEEN lost to JULIETTE in a 1 minute master's brawl.  A
battle of the stylemasters.  Juliette is top lunger, and Kronsteen is the leading
basher.  Juliette is graduating.

For the title:
     GIGI DIVINE (81-613) (34-15-1,130) of CULT OF BACCHUS fought CLERLEON (81-1796)
(14-7-1,98) of LA PENTARCHIE.  GIGI DIVINE demolished CLERLEON in a popular 5 minute
one-sided Title melee.  Gigi is the most impervious total parry, and has been invited
to the Isle.  Congratulations.

150 Turns!  So many teams have come and gone and some even came back!  Let's remember

them all as well as the warriors who have fallen in this fine arena!  Managers --
Warriors -- Citizens of Shadowspire!  Please raise your Glasses, Mugs, Decanters,
whatever you have in honor of 150 turns of combat! -- DeGotti

Otto -- Please save me one of your expert Bloody Marys!  I've heard you have
perfected the recipe recently! -- DeGotti

Kid Arcane -- I'm sure there will be a huge need of cleaning up after all these 150
turn celebrations going on! -- DeGotti

My favorite moment in Shadowspire?  I had a lot of those but I guess the greatest
when I beat Kellumbo to 200!  I wish he was still here, but well... -- LP

Regal -- I thought a matchup like ours would have generated more skill learns. --
Skullcleaver

Agorix -- Ouch... -- Longfangs

Lady Godiva -- You were too experienced for a young Orc like me. -- Reaver

Ingrat -- Looks like your career is turning around.  Hope mine does sometime soon
too. -- Trollhand

Oddjob -- Thanks for the victorious send off. -- Jaklak

Gigi Divine -- I see why you have been able to stay on top.  I might be able to beat
you on my terms.  Well fought. -- Martiln

Zadie Smith -- Was trying out a new weapon and you were the prefect practice dummie.
Unfortunately the weapon of choice was not my favorite.  Ohh well. -- Feohr

Orting -- Hmmmm, maybe I found something. -- Irwehn

Verity -- Short and sweet, just the way I like them.  Ummm I meant the fight, not
you. -- Reddig

     You don't like her?

Gremlin Stew -- Poke fun all you want, but I cant beat anyone up here in the
challenger champs, so since I'm only a couple of turns away from graduating and my
chance of death is minimal against you, as well as I actually GAIN recognition points
when I lose to you, I figured you wouldn't mind the freebies!  (Pathetic I know, but
Hombre needs some new blood asap!) -- Kronsteen

Darque -- The above was my personal ad you requested for turn 150.  I guess
technically this could count as my requested personal ad, but this one would never
have surfaced if not for the personal ad above, which was clearly referenced earlier
in this ad which, now that I have thought about it, I would like to NOT count as my
one ad you requested for this turn, and would much rather have the above ad (now
referenced for the third time, your taskmaster-like requests are starting to wear
thin) to count for my contribution for the turn 150 requested ad. -- Hombre

Gremlin Stew -- Adding to my above ad (the ad above the ad that references the
original ad, and by that I mean my original ad.  Well, not my original ad, but the
first one I wrote this turn, not the ORIGINAL, original ad, because let's face it, I
have no idea who wrote the very first ad ever for this game, although, that would be
crazy-cool to know right?), Kronsteen is a 12 wit basher who learns like a 7 wit
basher who has a defense fave learn.  When you base a whopping TWO in defense and
learn poorly, you can't even rely on said defense.  But I still wouldn't mind getting
him out, because seeing faves is always interesting. -- Hombre

Congratulations, Shadowspire, on a very successful and entertaining 150 turns!
Here's to 150 more!  -- Vanek, Manager of Warmasters

I'd like to take a moment and thank La Pentarchie, Dragonbane Guild, Darque Ages,
Clan Longbeard, and Literate Loons for being the backbone of this great arena by
running nearly every turn since its creation.  It is because of great managers such
as yourselves that Shadowspire has been so successful and fun for so long.  I salute
each and every one of you for your dedication! -- Vanek

Rain Dogs -- I hope your return is legit and not just an error.  We'd love to see you
back full time! -- Vanek

Bond-Age -- I didn't like my chances last turn, but I had to try and avenge Eborius.
I may not have been in position to successfully bloodfeud you, but you're not off the
hook that easy.  I intend to have by payback at some point in the future. -- Vanek

Longfangs -- 3 CN Strikers are difficult to graduate alive.  Justinius was no
exception.  Oh well, back to the drawing board. -- Vanek

DeGotti -- Yep, and I couldn't have been more happy to see it was one of Grimm's
sissies that he did it to!  Priceless! -- Vanek

1st Null Zone -- Were you having a stroke while writing your personal ads last turn?
Lol. -- Scipio

Kid Arcane -- If you say so. -- Vanek

All -- I will personally pick up the entire tab for your whole stable at Otto's Diner
to whichever team can knock Gigi Divine off of that top spot!  I'm sick of seeing her
there.  Time for some new blood on the throne! -- Vanek

Knut Sunderhelm -- Interesting attire choices.  I was prepared, but obviously for
another style. -- Tamerlane

Pasta All Denty -- I hate pasta.  No, that is not true.  I just hate you. -- Julian
of Norwich

Reaver -- I hope it was everything you expected it to be. -- Lady Godiva

Cat N Tonic -- That is the second time that has happened between us.  I cannot
explain it any better now than I could then. -- The Black Prince

Cabichon -- Not really an ideal second fight.  The people who set up the fights get
lazy at times. -- Caedmon

All -- I had hopes of putting in a much larger spotlight, but alas it was not meant
to be.  Real life has a way of getting in the way at times. -- Master Darque

Cazador -- I broke my weapon your thick hide then beat myself down.  If not for that,
it could have been a different outcome. -- Sorry

Edna Milley -- My manager gave me a last minute weapon change.  I was still able to
overcome that.  I guess WJ was right after all.

Al Zheimer -- I guess you saw through to a few weaknessess I still have, huh?  Well,
the good news is that I'm slated for some extra training.  I'll be back, and THEN...
-- Comet Boy

Kemai -- You didn't seem that tough in our scouting reports.  Perhaps I was too
focused on STILL TRYING TO RAISE MY WILL FROM 16 TO 17!!! -- Gravity Vortex

Maybe -- 'Handily defeated'??  Perhaps... -- Blue Nova

Scipio -- Executing Shadowspire's little four-eyed accountant geek just to make a
name for yourself?  You're despicable!! -- Kid Arcane

     *I think I saw a puddy-tat! -- NAIEI*

Shadowspire -- Please welcome our two newest fighters:  Moonstruck and Nullfest.  The
best *cough, cough* the Gladiatorial Commission has to offer *sigh*--or so I've been
assured.  In the hopes that, THIS TIME, a recruit will actually HIT an opponent, the
eyeholes of their helmets have been taped shut.  Utilize this information as you see
fit. -- The Arcan Kid

    It's usually easier to hit something if you can see it! -- NAIEI

Hawk -- Thank you for noticing my potential. -- Regal

Comet Boy -- Sometimes I forget what lesson I should be trying to learn, is that the
same as not learning it in the first place? -- Verity

Search the Sky -- When I look up I only see Chartered teams beating us down.  Maybe I
should look for farther down the sands? -- The Catalyst

Skullcleaver -- Next time let me save my dignity.  You did not need to spank me in
public. -- Regal

Summer Bay Shot -- I am glad you learned your lesson, too bad I did not. -- Mishap

Reddig -- What an uneven match up.  Guess it happens, but jeez.  Thanks for the
skills though, that helps take away some of the sting. -- Verity

All -- Thanks for helping me find a place in Shadowspire.  To bad it is on the lower
rungs. -- The Catalyst, mgr Farseers

All -- Please welcome my two new warriors, Jek and Lord Golden.  May they truly test
your abilities. -- The Catalyst

     I bet if the proper inputting of your turns depended on sending in plain text,
     you'd figure it out!
