                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

     Being this is the first time I have had 3 warriors of the same guild receive
invites to the Isle on the same turn or have 4 graduate in two turns, here is some
info about those warriors.

Martiln -- 15(+1)-16(+1)-9-11(+1)-17(+1)-8-13(+1) Wall of Steel who learned 62 skills
in 42 arena fights, achieving Advanced Expert in Attack and Parry and Expert in
Initiative.  His favorites are Broadsword, High/Very Low rhythm, Initiative skills
and Riposte Tactic.  He started out strong going 11-4, but struggled after due to his
poor learning rate.  He is being assigned to Storm Rock, but hasn't decided if he
will continue fighting in the arena.

Feohr -- 15-15-11-17-11-6-9 Basher who learned 73 skills in 45 arena fights,
achieving Master in Attack and Advanced Expert in Decise and Initiative.  His
favorites are Morning Star, Very High/Moderate rhythm and Defensive Actions.  He was
a very inconsistent fighter, trying many different strategies and armor combinations.
In many of his last dozen or so fights he was running 10-6-6 responsive in the first
minute.  After little debate he has decided to retire from arena competition.

Irwehn -- 15-4-8-17(+2)-15-12-15 Parry Strike who learned 60 skills in 40 arena
fights, achieving Advance Expert in Decise and Riposte and Expert in Attack,
Initiative and Parry.  His favorites are Scimitar, Moderate/High rhythm and riposte
skills.  He is Piker that loves to fight like a Striker and he had his ups and downs
in his first 25 fights before finishing strong winning 12 of his last 15 fights.  He
is being assigned to Storm Rock, but will be taking a break from arena competition.

Reddig -- 9-10-13-20-16-6-10 Slasher who learned 84 skills in 32 arena fights,
achieving Master in Attack and Init, Advanced Expert in Decise and Parry and Expert
in Riposte.  His favorites are Battle Axe, Moderate/Moderate rhythm and parry skills.
He started out 17-4 before losing 5 of 6, but finished off his career in Shadowspire
with 5 straight wins.  He is being assigned to Storm Rock, but is going is taking
break from arena competition to go visit his family.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Howdy, pardners!  It's your new duelmaster, The Crisco Kid!  They say I'm the
fastest tub of lard in the west.  I don't know about that but I'm plenty quick.  It
feels strange being up here on top, while Uncle Stew is still around.  Sorta like
wearing another man's boots, if ya know what I mean.  Still, he said it was okay--
he's had his run and he told me to go for it.  So here I am!
     Golly gee, there shore are a lot o' good fighters up here.  I think Homonculus
was about the only one left I could beat.  Lucky for me he was duelmaster!  Maybe
with everyone still trying to bushwhack ol' Uncle Stew, I can sneak in another win or
two.  Then it's on to greener pastures for me!  I'd love to stay here and ramble on
but I got fences to ride and weapon handles to grease.  Until next week,

                                                The Crisco Kid

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail SHADOWSPIRE!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown 
for CLAN LONGBEARD, whose 1-4-0 this turn dropped them by 6 into 12th.  ROGUES DEN 
stable has parlayed this turn's 5-0-0 into a 6 space move up the rankings.  This 
brings them up to 3rd place.  Good work, guys!  The WARMASTERS 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, BEORDIN fought AELA FIREBLADE and gained 18 points 
and contributed to CULT OF BACCHUS' 4-1-1.  SACRED SABLE has lost to GRIMSTONES, 
falling 14 points, while helping make DOC LEGRAND'S LAB a 2-3-0 turn.  This turn THE 
CRISCO KID challenged FAILED DOG TRICK in what was SHADOWSPIRE's Title bout.  We 
should ask FAILED DOG TRICK about the thrill of victory, and what being the new 
Duelmaster does for a warrior, he's now the one to ask.  Can someone confirm a rumor 
for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Welcome 
Wench until they win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the FURRY FURY stable was the most avoided 
team this turn.  Come on SHADOWSPIRE, what are you afraid of?  And guess who avoided 
FURRY FURY stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was WARMASTERS.  Anyone surprised? 
Well, sports fans, take notice that HENRY MILLER from LITERATE LOONS was 
SHADOWSPIRE's most challenged warrior this turn.  LIGDISH BANG from PHILANTHROPISTS 
took a risk this turn by bravely challenging up 26 points in a challenge against HARE 
BINGER.  Even though LIGDISH BANG lost the fight, he at least came away with a gain 
of 76 points for challenging on of FURRY FURY.  In a fit of brilliance or of 
stupidity (hard to say sometimes), NYDERAWYN challenged GREMLIN STEW today, facing a 
33 difference in recognition.  Well, NYDERAWYN was beat by GREMLIN STEW, but 
NYDERAWYN gained 3 in recognition for his efforts.  Thank goodness for small favors.  
I don't know about you, but GORSHOK challenging down 22 points to DRAGONBANE GUILD's 
ST. HUGH, is not really worthy of SOME KINDA HATE.  We're not surprised to hear that 
GORSHOK killed ST. HUGH, but I bet it would be interesting to hear why SOME KINDA 
HATE made such a challenge.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  The Welcome Wench declares a free round for IRONHEAD and all of DRAGONBANE 
GUILD, for having revenged FURRY FURY's CAT N TONIC for killing one of their 
comrades.  Kudos go out to MOLE this turn, for revenging ROGUES DEN's bloodfeud 
against DRAGONBANE GUILD's warrior MCGREGOR.  Well done.  A brave warrior does not 
carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider 
well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in SHADOWSPIRE, but never good to wear out my welcome. 
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in SHADOWSPIRE again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe
