We will end this edition of the SYP.  Join us on Turn 176 for our special edition on
"Life and Death in the Arena."  It will examine those who have passed onto Ahringol's
Realm and those who have crossed to the Isle of the Eye and immortality.

Until Then,

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hail, Citizens of Shadowspire!!  (I like that better than Shadowspirians, don't
you?)  It's me, Blue Nova!  I know you didn't expect me to regain the throne, and
neither did the Kid, but hey, here I am!!
     First, my condolences go out to Dragonbane Guild.  It's an awkward situation,
stepping over a corpse to get to the throne.  Yeah, but I REALLY didn't mean to kill
Syftar Traff.  He was last month's Chartered Recognition Leader, for Pete's sake!!
So, I hope the fruit gift basket helps.
     Second, the stats: 13-12-10-21-8-9-11.  Classic, if a bit heavy on con, right?
Favorites are mod/vl, naturally adept with the FIST??  Huh, I never thought to try
that.  Supposedly my favorite skill learn is parry, but I dunno--I have over 16 parry
skills and just recently picked up an expert rating, so...  *shrug*  Anyway, doing
great damage has helped me more that the parry ability ever did, that's for sure.
     It'll be a long while before another teammate claims this throne.  I'm gonna
have to return for THAT party!  Until then, Farewell and Safe Passage to everyone!
(It'll help if you avoid the Diner's Chipped Plate Special!)

                                      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 FURRY FURY was 
unseated this week as DARQUE AGES moved up from 5th ranking to take the top spot with 
a 3-2-0 record for the round.  I have begun to suspect trickery on the part of 7TH 
SANCTUM.  How else weeks like this one's 4-1-0?  How else the sudden move to 4th 
team?  My tutors were fond of telling me that the higher you rise the harder you 
fall.  This week OF WOLF AND MAN went 2-3-0 and fell 14 notches into 17th!  CLAN 
LONGBEARD bore the brunt of major assault on their standings this week as they 
dropped to 19th position as the result of going 1-4-0!  Did only my eyes note the 
4-1-0 record which ME CUT YOUR HEAD managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that 
such a record will draw challengers!  QUARTON caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested AGORIX and was awarded 23 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, HAULIN' OATS put down ADISSA, 
causing her to lose 13 points of recognition in the process.  Who here was not 
present for the title fight this week as GLABRIO boldly challenged BLUE NOVA in order 
to strive for the Duelmasters honors?  Not for nothing has BLUE NOVA in the past laid 
claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week she's proven hers combat skill yet 
again.  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the 
whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  FURRY FURY is feared.  This much I 
can say.  Apparently the stalwarts of WARMASTERS are catching the bulk of jests down 
at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty fighters cannot 
but expect competition from those below.  MR BLUE take warning!  You have more than a 
few enemies in SHADOWSPIRE.  Give RAMIRUS credit for his courage.  Did you note how 
he challenged TOSSED SALAD despite the 26 point difference in their rankings?  Truth 
to tell, RAMIRUS did not come out of the fight a winner, but he managed to capture 
much attention, gaining 2 in recognition.  I cannot but express pride for the 
fearlessness of MR PINK who cast caution to the winds and challenged HENRY MILLER, a 
fighter 30 points higher.  To be sure the battle was a losing one.  But I like to 
think MR PINK at least gave HENRY MILLER a run for his money.  I can not but mention 
with disdain the name of DIABOLOS who this week posted a challenge to a warrior a 
full 15 points below in the rankings.  I thought DIABOLOS showed great skill and 
promise when he put to death STARRY VOID.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big 
deal!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  The warrior's path is harsh.  For 
mediocrity there is but one reward--death.  This past week STARRY VOID, at 8-11-0, 
departed SHADOWSPIRE forever.  I must report the passing of PHYNN, veteran of many 
duels.  8-10-0 final record His was not illustrious--but death plays no favorites.  
My hearty congratulations EREKOSE, for thy revenge upon EYE OF THE DEEP, slayer of 
thy fallen comrade.  Next time he will know better, eh?  Walk proud, warriors of 7TH 
SANCTUM!  By striking down VRATH you have avenged the honor of your dead.  Your 
virtue is known to all in SHADOWSPIRE.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     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 next we meet remember:  a fool 
flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing only 
once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Roadkill Surprise -- Quick and easy, just the way I like 'em -- Theta

Interesting turn with 3 close defeats... happy trails to the arousing Lady Godiva! --
LP

You won the crowd, Monoceros! -- Santa Claus, ohoho

Rise and shine, Me Cut Your Head.... enjoy the arena. -- LP

Mr Blue -- Nice, but no dice. -- Starry Void

Mr Orange -- They don't generally describe a 12 minute bout as "exciting", but I
guess everyone kept expecting you to lose any minute.  I know I did.  Well, you can
take a pounding, I'll give you that..  (And more, the next time our paths cross.) --
Monoceros

Toliver -- You held up nicely.  You make a great targer! -- Caelum

Mr Pink -- In order for it to be more interesting to the paying public, you MUST at
least raise your weapon as if you INTEND to attack (or parry, or something)! --
Cassiopeia

     Picky, picky!

Roadkill Surprise -- Hurry and return your crystal ball to the fakir who sold it to
you.  Your ability to forecast the next Duelmaster is commensurate with your skill at
guessing traffic patterns. -- Kid Arcane (Sorry, F. Furey; I just couldn't resist.)

Doc -- That Shrew has some talent. I can see why you have turned around your record
as of late! -- DeGotti

Eye of the Deep -- Damn, son!  You taking steroids lately? -- DeGotti

Sherman -- Did you run out of Literate names or something?  How about you fill the
rest of your roster out?  Same goes for you, Mr. Food! -- DeGotti

Why has Den gone so quiet?  Big boasts early on and then nothing! -- DeGotti
