                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Seven turns.  Seven turns on the throne, my friends.  I can't describe what it
feels like to be the champ for seven turns.  You might say it's...divine.  The staff
here treat me absolutely marvelously.  Massages, steam baths, mud masks--they've got
everything.  No wonder I'm so relaxed when I go into the arena.  That's a Gremlin
Stew top tip for you.  If you have the chance to try out the DM Spa, you must go.
Ask for Georg--he'll take care of you.  Tell him Stew sent you.
     My guest last week was Feohr, who wanted to come round and show off his big new
shiny sword.  It was a beautiful piece, but I think he should ask for his money back,
since it broke after only five swings.  Cheap imported Aruaki crap!  Anyway he was
nice enough to have brought a hammer along and he used it to fix the dents he'd made
in my shields.  These babies are the genuine article, my friends.  I got a guy on the
continent who makes 'em for me special.  Feohr did a nice repair job and you can't
even tell they've been used.  He might have a future in a high-end armory someday.
     So, that's it for now.  Tune in next week when we find out if the record falls,
or if some lucky punter can nudge me out of the top spot.  It doesn't get more
exciting than this!

                                                     Gremlin Stew

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of SHADOWSPIRE!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team OTTO'S DINER was 
unseated this week as WARMASTERS moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot with 
a 2-3-0 record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the 
corner!  Witness how this week SEARCH THE SKY went 4-1-0 to move up 4 in the 
rankings.  Did only my eyes note the 4-1-0 record which DRAGONBANE GUILD managed to 
post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  
LYCANTHROPIC LYNX caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as she 
skillfully bested PISTORIUS and was awarded 23 points in recognition.  In one of the 
week's more notable duels, CABICHON put down LONGFANGS, causing him to lose 16 points 
of recognition in the process.  This time out FEOHR made his bid for the throne as he 
challenged GREMLIN STEW in an all out contest of skill for possession of the title!  
Although FEOHR made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious GREMLIN STEW.  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that 
he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In SHADOWSPIRE "art" is a word that 
has long since passed from the language!  SHADOWSPIRE, city of gladiators!  Mighty 
among the names of thy guilds is CULT OF BACCHUS, a guild shunned and avoided by many 
in the weekly duels.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard 
pressed to find any of WARMASTERS last week.  Busy avoiding CULT OF BACCHUS?  Loose 
talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many 
fighters are after EDNA MILLAY.  Watch your back!  At the gambling halls I have 
started to bet money on TREMERUS.  He has got the courage it takes.  Witness his 
challenge this turn against HAULIN' OATS!  Do not the gods reward courage?  TREMERUS 
it was that claimed victory in the bout, while also rising 21 points in recognition.  
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Perhaps even the strong cannot escape the vagaries 
of this world.  This week arena veteran PISTORIUS was slain, despite a 7-4-0 record.  
Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing is sure, better a 
dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     The girls are as pretty in SHADOWSPIRE as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle 
walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.--

Catalyst -- Finding your favorites can be pretty difficult.  Even after finding out
what your favs are it can sometimes be tricky pinpointing the final numbers.  I
generally will start with the popular OE/AL numbers that are available with your
warriors style and then experiment if the warriors results wain. -- DeGotti

Ok -- Time to up my bribes at the commissioners office!  Need to get my challenges
through! -- DeGotti

Erekose -- Hopefully that train will help increase my win/loss %. -- Grimstones

Santa Claus -- Please don't put me on the naughty list!  I just get angry when you
hit me so much! -- Little Pea

Zadie Smith -- Thanks for all the skills and the rating!  I steal more than just
words sometimes! -- Word Thief

Tarr -- You had me worried with that blow to my knee.  Luckily you didn't beat the
Tarr out of me.-- Warg Rider

Syftar -- A close fight really.  I need to lay off the smokes. -- Longfangs

Onion Rings --  That was exciting.  Sorry about that infimary thing... -- Troll Hand

Cazador -- I don't think anyone was more surprised with my win than me. -- Reaver

Godiva -- I challenged you because I wanted to test my master in attack vs. your
parry.  I don't know why you didn't learn better.  But maybe you should not point the
finger at me. -- Reaver

Gremlin Stew -- Congrats on tying the record, you lucky son of a scumbag. -- Feohr

Quinn -- You need to have a serious talk with your smithy, best 2 outta 3? -- Martiln

Flavor to Go -- Not bad for a golem, til we meet again. -- Irwehn

Xiomburg -- Reports of my ineptitude are greatly exaggerated. -- Phynn

Congrats to Brussel Sprout on your invite. -- Visionist

Catalyst -- Finding a warrior's rhythm is almost immpossible and really not worth the
risk of getting the warrior killed.  In my opinion a warrior's favorite rhythm means
very little unless it is an Aimed Blow with fist favorite and even then it doesn't
really help until the warrior becomes highly skilled.  I would suggest focusing on
finding a warrior's favorite weapon and using rhythms that you know work in basic. --
Visionist

Lady Godiva -- Glad to have done so well against you, even though I still lost. --
White Prophet

Darque Ages -- I kind of thought you were going to let the Bloodfued opportunity pass
by, but I should have known better. -- The Catalyst

Journeyman -- What, no skills for me? -- Vixen

Adissa -- That was a bit awkward for me, and long too. -- Nosy

Starry Void -- All that and I am only able to learn one skill.  Bah! -- Bawndy

All -- How can I tell when my defensive style warriors skip an attack opportunity
they should have taken?  Then, what can I do to have them take a swing next time? --
The Catalyst, mgr Farseers

All -- Any suggestions for:  7-3-17-9-11-10-13?  My thought was 11-3-17-15-11-10-17,
Ba for QS but also considered 7-3-17-13-17-10-17, AB. -- The Catalyst

Seamstress -- The lesson learned:  Don't bring a pair of scissors to a sword fight.
ON a positive note, it's good that you have another career to fall back on. --
Gravity Vortex

Caedmon -- Why do you always pop up when I'm experimenting with strategy and rhythms?
I'm going to challenge YOU next turn.  Hopefully we can sort this out to my benefit.
-- Blue Nova

Bawndy -- You stood still so much, the sands were left largely undisturbed.  And you
bled in one spot.  We all appreciate that. -- Starry Void

Eye of the Deep -- Your cousin must still be working as a journalist wannabe.
"Viciously subdued?"  Not likely!  I got tired.  That's it.  Let's not make a big
deal about it, okay? -- Moonstruck

Pistorius -- Ah, the first challenge from Warmasters in a while.  Down 8.  No real
surprise there.  Congratulations on working up the guts for it. -- Celestial STeel

DeGotti -- Yes, I understood your meaning initially.  Well, it's a touch of realism
in an otherwise purely fantastical world, eh? -- Kid Arcane 

Larkin -- Great job with the newsletter again. (As always)  Please consider letting
us read one of your stories. -- Kid Arcane

     Don't have time right now to do something new involving Shadowspire inhabitants,
     and the old ones are all about people you never met.
