                             Notes from the arena champ.

    Hey there, guess who?  Oh who am I kidding--you already know who.  It's the Stew!
My guest last week was the new musical sensation known as Reddig.  What?  I fought
the same guy--I can't use the same column?  Oh very well.  As I was saying, my guest
last week was Reddig once again.  He phoned me up urgently and said he'd just come up
with a new number he was just dying to show me.  I thought his first performance was
a little flat but like my other job as a judge on Alastarian Idol, I'm inclined to
give an upstart a second chance if they show promise.  So, Reddit comes on and goes
right into the same act he did last time, only with a lot more thrashing about.  Let
me tell you this guy was all over the place.  It went on seemingly forever and had no
payoff.  I had to nudge him in the leg more than once to let him know it was time to
get of the stage.  Pity, maybe he can get a job as a singing sushi chef.  Anyway,
next week I promise to have someone new and exciting as my guest.  Can't wait til
then!

                                                        Gremlin Stew

                                      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 SAVAGE HORDE is pushed out of top team by OTTO'S DINER, who 
came from 4th with a 4-1-0 this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for 
there are sorrows to drown for SAVAGE HORDE, whose 1-4-0 this turn dropped them by 6 
into 7th.  The THE MOTHERSHIP 011 guild has had a 4-1-0 turn and deserves to be 
watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's 
see, JULIAN OF NORWICH fought DROW and gained 25 points and contributed to DARQUE 
AGES' 2-3-0.  DROW has lost to JULIAN OF NORWICH, falling 26 points, while helping 
make MONSTER MANUAL a 1-4-0 turn.  HARE BINGER challenged for the Duelmastership this 
turn, attempting to dethrone OTTO'S DINER's warrior.  The attempts to dethrone the 
Duelmaster have failed, and GREMLIN STEW remains SHADOWSPIRE's top warrior for 
another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources 
that The Warty Toad uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the WARMASTERS stable was 
the most avoided team this turn.  Come on SHADOWSPIRE, what are you afraid of?  And 
guess who avoided WARMASTERS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was SAVAGE 
HORDE.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was CULT OF BACCHUS' 
warrior ADISSA.  More fighters challenged her than challenged the Duelmaster!  In a 
brave attempt, BLUE NOVA from SEARCH THE SKY challenged up 18 points to fight GAMBLE 
from the THE MOTHERSHIP 011 stable.  BLUE NOVA perhaps got hers just desserts, seeing 
as she was bested by GAMBLE and ended up with 38 recognition points.  RAMIRUS of 
WARMASTERS had better have a good reason for challenging down 13 points in a 
challenge which he won.  I thought RAMIRUS showed great skill and promise when he 
bested ADISSA.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Kudos go out to CAZADOR this turn, for revenging DRAGONBANE GUILD's 
bloodfeud against FURRY FURY's warrior CAT N TONIC.  Well done.  Congratulations go 
out to WARMASTERS, with PISTORIUS revenging a bloodfeud against TARR of BRIDGE 
BURNERS.  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  
You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in SHADOWSPIRE again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Happy New Year!  I am late, but I may also have missed the turn... late and later...
-- LP

Nicely Done, Savage Horde... you all deserve to be French! -- LP

Well, Trollhand, I'm not really good at anything... -- The Drone

Skullcleaver -- You were right about our weird fight... but nice hit anyway! --
Ingrat

For the record, I don't like downchallenges and will hit back if this is the case...
-- LP

Hawk -- Your boy Warg Rider is able to take more damage then I thought.  Congrats on
the victory! -- DeGotti

Turducken -- Damn you!  I was planning on staying in the CCs a bit longer.  Oh well,
I'm better off in the champs right now I guess! -- Word Thief

All -- A 1-4 turn last time out?  That hasn't happened to the Cult in a while.  Let's
not make this a common occurrence! -- DeGotti

I will be a little lighter in the warriors the next couple turns here.  I need to
find some workable replacements that live up to Bacchus' standards.  These slow,
dumb, giants just don't make the grade! -- DeGotti

Grimstones -- Looks like you need to work on the cardio and try again. -- Warg Rider

Caedmon -- We meet again and I loose again.  Tough matchup for me, I guess. --
Longfang's

Lady Godiva -- I lost but I didn't drop in the rankings.  Thanks for the skills. --
Skullcleaver

Blue Nova -- I think it is time that I come clean about using EPO, HGH, Steroids,
strength potions, guantlets of giant strength and boots of speed. -- Reaver

Sye the Bearded -- You hit hard! -- Trollfang

Aela Fireblade -- I can't believe your Epee broke my Short Spear.  Then your Epee
broke from my Short Sword--all in the first minute.  Interesting fight. -- Picker

Arena Armorer -- Where do you get these rust spotted weapons you give the warriors to
fight with?  Do you have someone pick up this foreign made garbage from the sands of
the EaBay? -- WJ (Mgr Bridge Burners)

Warmasters -- You had to think that was a bad challenge when you made it.  Maybe you
expected this ending?  Sorry about the fate of Antonius.  Standing by for the feud.
-- Tarr

Eye of the Deep -- Zero for two lets me know that I should stay awayy from you. --
Regal

Ultimate Laws -- I sure did not anticipate a challenge from you.  I did however plan
to win. -- White Prophet

Turning Cathedral -- Wow, you fell for me in record time.  Four minutes is a
compliment. -- Nose

Syftar Traff -- Seems I made a poor choice, hopefully my next one will be better. --
Vixen

Degotti, Kid Arcane -- Thank you for the responses last turn, I look forward to
future answers. -- The Catalyst

Vanek -- You get upset at my teasing after speaking up from Hombre doing the same
thing?  I at least can still grow a pair, while yours will never regenerate. -- The
Catalyst

All -- Does anyone know what weapons are better for speed for each style?  Is it
dependant on the physical staats or the weapon itself?  How does style affect weapon
quickness? -- The Catalyst

The Seamstress -- I think you were a bit overconfident!  Now that I'm going for
skills and not stats you're going to see a big difference in my win/loss percentage.
-- Gravity Vortex

Summer Bay Shot -- Going for the head, huh?  Good luck with taty; it doesn't seem to
be working out too well so far. -- Celestial Steel

Destroyer of Worlds -- That's an interesting name for a plate-armored punching bag!
Well, you can take the hits, I'll give you that.  Next time I'll be the challenger,
okay?  I have a few ideas for dealing with that armor... -- Moonstruck

Inscrutabe&Magical -- I'm glad I raised a stat instead of trying to learn anything
from that fight.  I already know how to bleed.  (The hysterical weeping was a novelty
for me...nothing I'd like to learn, though.) -- Starry Void

Reaver -- Well, now I've tried the Decisiveness tactic.  I did much better without
tactics, wouldn't you agree?  I'll have to get a little more seasoning in before I
challenge you again.  But I WILL challenge again. -- Blue Nova

Larkin -- Thank you!  YOu did a superb job with the Spy Report (as usual).  I'm sure
we all appreciate that 'extra touch' you bring to the newsletter!  I want to
encourage you, on days when the hands are uncooperative, to consider just giving us a
quick overview instead of the blow-by-blow for all the fight.  Also, you might think
about throwing in an old spotlight of yours form time to time as well.  You must have
stuff that still read well, but hasn't seen the light of day in years.  Bring it on
out! -- Kid Arcane

     Well... maybe.  But not today, when the whole office is still reeling from the
     aftermath of the tourney.

Catalyst -- "...still above Search the Sly!"  Not for much longer, Bub. -- Havoc

Degotti -- Do you really think everyone does just as they please when it comes to
challenges?  There are many managers here have NEVER down-challenged me.  EVER.  (Of
course, my team may not seem so formidable that a down-challenge is deemed
necessary...) -- Kid Arcane

     But that could be "just as they pleased," couldn't it?  I could get
     philosophical about that at considerable length, but with the runner dancing
     impatiently around waiting for this newsletter, and fresh-baked kolaches just
     down the hill waiting for me... not today.  Next turn, I'll see about getting
     something together. -- Larkin

Vanek -- Any chance of a spotlight that would illuminate your 'unique' perspective on
the arena?  No kidding; I would (sincerely) like to read that! -- Kid Arcane
