                             Notes from the arena champ.

     How unexpected!  And in the midst of an ugly day for my team...  I was wondering
how I could celebrate when it occurred to me that someone much worthier was there
before.  So I bought to Lady Fern in Fratsfa one of the her famous best-selling Gigi
inflatable dolls, dressed her with a decent plate armor, and put her on my throne!

Clergeon

                                      SPY REPORT

     Okay, here we are.  The tourney is over, though there seems to be some problems
in the clerks' office.  Too many tequila sunrises there.  Not that it matters to US.
WE don't mess with all that tourney nonsense.
     So let's take a look at what WE have:  forty-six fights, three involving
standbys.  Four Dark Arena matches, a bloodfeud, and sixteen regular challenges.  Not
bad.
     A shift in the team rankings:  Cult of Bacchus, going 4-1-0, moved up to top
place, pushing out Search the Sky (0-5-0).  They searched the sky, and it was
raining.  A hard, cold rain, too.  Unpleasant.  But it'll pass.  And as for the Cult
of Bacchus, Alarond the Scribe is worried about 'em, says they should be watched
closely because "you never know where this kind of thing can lead."
     Dragonbane Guild went 3-2-0 and moved up six spaces.  Good work.
     Alarond says that a green quarterstaff will last longer than a seasoned sapling.
Depends on how you interpret those words.  I found a green quarterstaff in my icebox
last week, I *think* it had originally been a stalk of celery, but it was seriously
petrified.  And as for seasoning--don't get me started!
     Darque Ages was most avoided, and Bridge Burners avoided them the most.

The Dark Arena fights:
     CROOKED TAIL (81-1921) (0-2-0,2) of FURRY FURY DA challenged DARK CHAMPION (81-
24) (0-0-0,60) of DARK ARENA.  CROOKED TAIL was butchered by DARK CHAMPION in a 1
minute Dark Arena fight.
     WIT BEAST (81-1933) (0-1-0,1) of FARSEERS DA challenged MOUNTAIN TROLL (81-18)
(0-0-0,40) of DARK ARENA.  WIT BEAST was dealt death by MOUNTAIN TROLL in a 1 minute
Dark Arena duel.
     MINT JULIP (81-1918) (1-3-0,6) of SUMMERBORN DA challenged DARK CHAMPION (81-24)
(0-0-0,60) of DARK ARENA.  MINT JULIP was narrowly killed by DARK CHAMPION in a 2
minute Dark Arena melee.
     SEL (81-1924) (0-3-0,3) of FARSEERS DA challenged BANDIT PRINCE (81-25) (0-0-
0,60) of DARK ARENA.  SEL was murdered by BANDIT PRINCE in a 1 minute gruesome Dark
Arena fight.
     So there we have four warriors summarily retired.

The bloodfeudL
     REGAL (81-1904) (4-2-0,33) of FARSEERS bloodfeuded HITTIUS (81-1880) (4-4-1,26)
of CULT OF BACCHUS.  Down 7.  REGAL bested HITTIUS in a 4 minute gory Bloodfeud 
contest.  Good work.  Um... did either of these guys carry a red shield during the
fight?  Alarond seemed to think that was or would have been significant.  I suppose
that depends on how close you shaved it.

A quick listing of the random matches, no comments:
     HUGO DRAX (81-1948) (0-0-0,0) of BOND-AGE fought CONVICTED THIEF (81-1) (0-0-
0,5) of Fine Imported Standbys.  HUGO DRAX handily defeated CONVICTED THIEF in a 1
minute mismatched bout.
     MAY DAY (81-1947) (0-0-0,0) of BOND-AGE fought PERSISTANT BEGGAR (81-4) (0-0-
0,10) of Fine Imported Standbys.  MAY DAY won victory over PERSISTANT BEGGAR in a 2
minute novice's bout.
     PRIMUS STAR (81-1945) (0-0-0,0) of SEARCH THE SKY fought WHITE PROPHET (81-1946)
(0-0-0,0) of FARSEERS.  PRIMUS STAR was savagely defeated by WHITE PROPHET in a 3
minute novice's match.
     CELESTIAL STEEL (81-1931) (2-0-0,12) of SEARCH THE SKY fought GRIMSTONES (81-
1937) (0-0-0,0) of CULT OF BACCHUS.  CELESTIAL STEEL was viciously subdued by
GRIMSTONES in a 1 minute amateur's match.
     WARG RIDER (81-1926) (2-1-0,20) of SAVAGE HORDE fought RAMIRUS (81-1935) (1-0-
0,16) of WARMASTERS.  WARG RIDER was outlasted by RAMIRUS in a unpopular 10 minute
gory beginner's conflict.  Ramirus was the least popular fighter today, and I can
guess why.

     REAVER (81-1879) (4-6-0,23) of SAVAGE HORDE fought SYFTAR TRAFF (81-1876) (4-6-
0,18) of DRAGONBANE GUILD.  REAVER vanquished SYFTAR TRAFF in a 1 minute mismatched
duel.
     AL ZHEIMER (81-1886) (5-3-0,18) of LA PENTARCHIE fought TARR (81-1938) (0-1-0,1)
of BRIDGE BURNERS.  AL ZHEIMER overpowered TARR in a 1 minute one-sided fight.
     GRAVITY VORTEX (81-1895) (1-6-0,14) of SEARCH THE SKY fought CABICHON (81-1914)
(2-3-0,9) of LA PENTARCHIE.  GRAVITY VORTEX was demolished by CABICHON in a 1 minute
uneven competition.
     KENAI (81-1901) (5-1-0,16) of DRAGONBANE GUILD fought MOONSTRUCK (81-1929) (2-1-
0,7) of SEARCH THE SKY.  KENAI won victory over MOONSTRUCK in a 2 minute bloody bout.
     KALAM (81-1888) (7-5-1,30) of BRIDGE BURNERS fought CICADA SONG (81-1911) (4-2-
0,33) of SUMMERBORN.  KALAM was demolished by CICADA SONG in a 1 minute gory one-
sided duel.

     INGRAT (81-1805) (9-13-0,40) of LA PENTARCHIE fought BLUE NOVA (81-1898) (5-2-
0,34) of SEARCH THE SKY.  INGRAT savagely defeated BLUE NOVA in a 3 minute bloody
match.
     THE DRONE (81-1862) (8-5-1,40) of LA PENTARCHIE fought JULIAN OF NORWICH (81-
1783) (11-15-1,49) of DARQUE AGES.  THE DRONE was beaten by JULIAN OF NORWICH in a
popular 1 minute fray.
     EDNA MILLAY (81-1834) (9-10-0,55) of LITERATE LOONS fought THE CRISCO KID (81-

minute mismatched match.
     TROLL HAND (81-1825) (9-9-1,62) of SAVAGE HORDE fought ORTING (81-1815) (9-9-
0,43) of THE WILLBURYS II.  TROLL HAND viciously subdued ORTING in a popular 4 minute
bloody duel.
     IRWEHN (81-1785) (13-13-0,61) of CLAN LONGBEARD fought CAEDMON (81-1873) (7-4-
0,35) of DARQUE AGES.  IRWEHN overpowered CAEDMON in an action packed 1 minute brutal
one-sided bout.

     JOSEPH MITCHELL (81-1746) (12-18-1,82) of LITERATE LOONS fought LADY GODIVA (81-
1782) (17-9-0,71) of DARQUE AGES.  JOSEPH MITCHELL savagely defeated LADY GODIVA in a
popular 2 minute veteran's match.
     FEOHR (81-1737) (15-16-1,75) of CLAN LONGBEARD fought KRONSTEEN (81-1748) (16-
12-0,83) of BOND-AGE.  FEOHR was savagely defeated by KRONSTEEN in an action packed 2
minute veteran's fight.  Kronsteen was the top basher.
     RENTON (81-1623) (12-15-1,88) of THE WILLBURYS II fought CAZADOR (81-1578) (22-
20-0,86) of DRAGONBANE GUILD.  RENTON was luckily beaten by CAZADOR in a crowd
pleasing 4 minute veteran's fray.  Cazador was the top parry-striker, and Renton the
most popular warrior this week.
     ONION RINGS (81-1684) (15-18-0,68) of FOOD fought DROW (81-1774) (16-12-0,84) of
MONSTER MANUAL.  ONION RINGS was overpowered by DROW in a 1 minute uneven duel.  Drow
as top aimed blow.
     SUMNER (81-1624) (15-12-0,76) of THE WILLBURYS II fought IRONHEAD (81-1722) (20-
12-0,79) of DRAGONBANE GUILD.  SUMNER viciously subdued IRONHEAD in an exciting 3
minute gruesome veteran's fight.  Sumner had the biggest point gain today at 14.

     BRUSSEL SPROUTS (81-1688) (16-17-2,98) of FOOD fought PASTA ALL DENTY (81-1837)
(8-10-0,73) of OTTO'S DINER.  BRUSSEL SPROUTS savagely defeated PASTA ALL DENTY in an
exciting 3 minute gory duel.
     MEDA (81-854) (23-8-0,103) of CULT OF BACCHUS fought TRUTTS (81-1889) (9-7-0,72)
of BRIDGE BURNERS.  MEDA handily defeated TRUTTS in an exciting 1 minute gory one-
sided contest.
     BALTAIRE (81-833) (17-16-0,109) of CULT OF BACCHUS fought HARE BINGER (81-1790)
(13-10-1,67) of FURRY FURY.  BALTAIRE overpowered HARE BINGER in a 1 minute uneven
fray.  Baltaire was top striker AND overall popularity leader.
     TAMERLANE (81-1764) (16-12-1,106) of DARQUE AGES fought KHALHUMS DWARF (81-16)
(0-0-0,85) of Fine Imported Standbys.  TAMERLANE savagely defeated KHALHUMS DWARF in

17-0,68) of LITERATE LOONS.  NICK NACK overpowered ZADIE SMITH in a crowd pleasing 2
minute mismatched fight.

Ah!  The challenges:
     EYE OF THE DEEP (81-1923) (3-1-0,11) of MONSTER MANUAL challenged SUMMER BAY
SHOT (81-1884) (2-5-1,26) of SUMMERBORN.  Up 15.  EYE OF THE DEEP beat SUMMER BAY
SHOT in a 1 minute Challenge bout.  Summer Bay Shot had the biggest point drop at 12.
     LAP OF ADAMANT (81-1934) (1-0-0,11) of SUMMERBORN challenged PISTORIUS (81-1916)
(1-2-0,10) of WARMASTERS.  Down 1.  LAP OF ADAMANT slimly lost to PISTORIUS in a 4
minute novice's Challenge brawl.  This gives me to think.  I don't know WHAT it gives
me to think, but I suppose any thinking is good.
     TOBIAS (81-1927) (1-2-0,5) of CLAN LONGBEARD challenged ROADKILL SURPRISE (81-
1920) (2-1-0,7) of FURRY FURY.  Up 2.  TOBIAS was overcome by ROADKILL SURPRISE in a
2 minute amateur's Challenge bout.  Hit and run?
     SHADOW WOLF (81-1932) (1-0-0,22) of FARSEERS challenged HENRY MILLER (81-1846)
(3-13-0,22) of LITERATE LOONS.  Straight across.  SHADOW WOLF lost to HENRY MILLER in
a 1 minute amateur vs. expert Challenge bout.  Interesting, is Henry just beginning
to hit his stride?
     SCIPIO (81-1900) (5-2-1,31) of WARMASTERS challenged CAT N TONIC (81-1870) (3-5-
0,26) of FURRY FURY.  Down 5.  SCIPIO overcame CAT N TONIC in a 2 minute Challenge
fight.  Cat-ass-trophically?

     PICKER (81-1890) (6-9-1,28) of BRIDGE BURNERS challenged LONGFANGS (81-1881) (4-
5-1,24) of SAVAGE HORDE.  Down 2.  PICKER was devastated by LONGFANGS in a 1 minute
mismatched Challenge bout.  Badly bitten.
     BAD BORSCHT (81-1894) (4-4-2,48) of OTTO'S DINER challenged THE BLACK PRINCE
(81-1841) (10-7-0,49) of DARQUE AGES.  Up 1.  BAD BORSCHT was devastated by THE BLACK
PRINCE in a 1 minute Challenge battle.  Did a blob of better butter make the bad
borscht better?
     STORM GIANT (81-1819) (10-10-0,56) of MONSTER MANUAL challenged TOSSED SALAD
(81-1686) (8-25-0,58) of FOOD.  Up 2.  STORM GIANT subdued TOSSED SALAD in a 3 minute
master's Challenge match.  Hey, he was HUNGRY.
     GLABRIO (81-1800) (9-13-2,49) of WARMASTERS challenged WORD THIEF (81-1849) (7-
6-0,47) of CULT OF BACCHUS.  Down 2.  GLABRIO was overpowered by WORD THIEF in a
popular 1 minute one-sided Challenge melee.  And Glabrio was left with nothing to
say.
     FAILED DOG TRICK (81-1798) (9-11-0,59) of FURRY FURY challenged REDDIG (81-1838)
(14-4-0,79) of CLAN LONGBEARD.  Up 20.  FAILED DOG TRICK was vanquished by REDDIG in
a 1 minute one-sided Challenge fight.  And the Trick failed again.

     SORRY (81-1891) (8-8-0,64) of BRIDGE BURNERS challenged SKULLCLEAVER (81-1877)
(6-4-0,66) of SAVAGE HORDE.  Up 2.  SORRY vanquished SKULLCLEAVER in a 1 minute
uneven Challenge fight.  No skulls cloven today.
     AGORIX (81-1842) (11-6-2,59) of WARMASTERS challenged KAMAL KHAN (81-1883) (6-3-
0,35) of BOND-AGE.  Down 24.  AGORIX lost to KAMAL KHAN in an action packed 1 minute
Challenge duel.  Surprising.
     MARTILN (81-1742) (18-11-0,89) of CLAN LONGBEARD challenged HOMONCULOUS (81-
1851) (10-4-0,97) of MONSTER MANUAL.  Up 8.  MARTILN defeated HOMONCULOUS in a 3
minute Challenge melee.  What's the armor class of a long beard?
     TURDUCKEN (81-1784) (13-13-1,104) of OTTO'S DINER challenged LITTLE DARLING (81-
1700) (19-15-0,114) of SUMMERBORN.  Up 10.  TURDUCKEN was overpowered by LITTLE
DARLING in a 1 minute mismatched Challenge brawl.  Little Darling was the top wall of
steel, AND the most challenged warrior today.
     PURPLE WORM (81-1775) (14-14-1,98) of MONSTER MANUAL challenged KNUT SUNDERHELM
(81-1569) (19-24-3,102) of DRAGONBANE GUILD.  Up 4.  PURPLE WORM was defeated by KNUT
SUNDERHELM in a 2 minute master's Challenge match.  Rumor has it that during the
first minute, Knut was conviced the purple worm was a figment of his hangover.  Then
it bit him, and he started fighting back....

For the title:
     GREMLIN STEW (81-1710) (25-8-0,101) of OTTO'S DINER challenged CLERLEON (81-
1796) (16-8-1,124) of LA PENTARCHIE.  Up 23.  GREMLIN STEW bested CLERLEON in a 4
minute veteran's Challenge Title duel.  Gremlin Stew was top total parry, Clerleon
was top slasher, and one or the other of them was "cramped under the table at The
Swinging Aardvark."  So I hear.  Seems unlikely; the tables are too flimsy.
Congratulations.

Hombre -- No DM Column?  For shame! -- DeGotti

Visionist -- What?  Gigi created a log jam?  I knew she redecorated the throne room,
but I didn't know she had engineering skills too! -- DeGotti

The Catalyst -- I will give Hittius a couple more turns.  He finally made his stat
train last turn so I shall decide after this turn if he fights at night on turn #155.
-- DeGotti

Julian -- I'm glad I didn't help to break your streak! -- Word Thief

Blue Nova -- Looks like I bit off more than my Warg could chew, so to speak...  Must
be nice to be a genius.  I didn't learn me nothin. -- Warg Rider

Cabichon -- Good thing I won that one.  I have been in twice as many fights as you.
Is Cabichon french for cabbage? -- Longue la Dent

Word Thief -- Good fight.  Looks like my matchup for this turn will be a real mess.
I guess beating a Cult member really moves you up in the rankings.  Hope to make it
out of this alive. -- Skullcleaver

The Crisco Kid -- I am humbled by your amazing swordsmanship.  Actually, I'd like to
demand a rematch but Hawk said I was supposed to say something respectful. -- Reaver

The Drone -- I think my fight experience gave me the advantage just like Longtooth.
Next time you are at Otto's the ale is on me. -- Troll Hand

Pistorius -- Is that not the outcome you were seeking when challenging me? -- Regal

Roadkill Surprise -- Surprised?  -- Shadow Wolf

Syftar Traff -- You just became the straw that broke the camel's back. -- Sel

Eye of the Deep -- My manager went off the deep end after that fight! -- Wit Beast

All -- Wow, the worst record in Shadowspire.  Well, no where to go but up. -- The
Catalyst

DeGotti -- Giving one shot at the BF, probably not a very wise choice for me to even
try.  Good luck with your experiment. -- The Catalyst

All -- 2-3 turn.  My percentage increased, too.  Must be my lucky week. -- The
Catalyst, mgr. Farseers

Bad Borscht -- Hard for me to picture revenge for Verity at this point. -- The
Catalyst

Search the Sky -- Congrats on making Top Team.  I hope to be there some day. -- The
Catalyst

Hittius -- Hah!  You're lucky I played that one a little conservative, spud.  But
hey... KA-CHING!  The five skills are worth the loss! -- Gravity Vortex

Warg Rider -- Don't be so anxious to die, Rider.  Your day will come... sooner than
you wish, if you keep challenging like that. -- Blue Nova

Tobias -- You've got the skills, I'll give you that.  But you seem a little...
delicate... for this kind of work. -- Celestial Steel

Ramirus -- Weren't you the lucky one?  I was experimenting with the halbard, just for
kicks... it DID knock you back quite a bit, didn't it?  Well, now I suppose I'll try
something else... -- Moonstruck

Monster Manual -- Wow!  56-pt gain!  Good for you! -- Search the Sky

Catalyst -- Luck is a ravishingly beautiful mistress, but oh-so-fickle! -- Kid Arcane

DeGotti -- Why get rid of Hittius?  He hits like a tank, that one.  With the right
challenges, he looks good from the bleachers. -- Kid Arcane

Grimm -- Welcome back to Shadowspire!! -- Kid Arcane
