                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ramirus thinks he's Shadowspire's white knight?  The reality of the situation
paints quite a different picture.  Seajanus slew a comrade of mine, no big loss in my
book but all deaths will be avenged.  And avenge we did, as both Gorshok and myself
saught to teach the insolent whelp a lesson.
     Of course the ever predictable Vanek true to form challenged down with his
departing warriors.  It was only then that the dearly departed Diabolos butchered his
warrior.  You see Mordraith is not an unreasonable man, but there are limits.  Vanek
tested those limits and Seajanus paid in blood.  Personally, I say we did the poor
kid a favor, a quick end to the suffering he was likely to endure under his
management.
     Now Diabolos is dead but he served his purpose well and it is my task to seek
retribution.  So Ramirus, ask your gods for help but I'm afraid you will find they've
gone quite deaf.  I forsee three more losses for you, and a nice relaxing reaign as
your Duelmaster.

--Brain Eater
P.S.  Ramirus is like chinese food, 30 minutes later and you're hungry again...

For enquiring minds Diabolos was 9-13-11-21-9-8-13 ST Poor End, Good Damage EX Ini,
Ex Rip, AE Att, and AE decise.  Average and underperforming....

                                      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 SOME KINDA HATE was 
unseated this week as LITERATE LOONS moved up from 5th ranking to take the top spot 
with a 4-1-0 record for the round.  Fortune did not smile upon DRAGONBANE GUILD this 
time out who this turn suffered a fall into 7th position in the wake of a 4-1-0 
round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness how 
this week ROGUES DEN went 5-0-1 to move up 6 in the rankings.  My praise to WICKED 
MARTYRS for their 4-1-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round 
deserving of notice!  BEORDIN caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission 
as he skillfully bested YORKE and was awarded 24 points in recognition.  In one of 
the week's more notable duels, BEORDIN put down YORKE, causing him to lose 18 points 
of recognition in the process.  Due to his absence and inability to defend the 
throne, BRAIN EATER has lost the title of Duelmaster.  The city has turned out in 
honor of LADY ORIEL, for with hers arena victory she may now lay claim to the highest 
position in the city!  Would you believe that over half of the old women in 
SHADOWSPIRE seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     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 ANTHROPOS KRATOS, a guild shunned and avoided by 
many in the weekly duels.  Apparently the stalwarts of WARMASTERS are catching the 
bulk of jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  
Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that 
many fighters are after PSEUDO DRAGON.  Watch your back!  A match that raised a few 
eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that MYNOCK MAELSTROM posted a challenge 
against the more highly recognized MAIMONIDES.  The results, you ask?  Well, the 
firebrand MYNOCK MAELSTROM overcame MAIMONIDES.  Remember warriors, this is the 
discipline of steel.  I can not but mention with disdain the name of INCREDIBLE HULK 
who this week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 14 points below in the rankings. 
I thought INCREDIBLE HULK showed great skill and promise when he overcame TUVEK.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  The warrior's path is harsh.  For mediocrity there is but one 
reward--death.  This past week WEEZY, at 9-8-0, departed SHADOWSPIRE forever.  Let 
all swords of the city take heed!  By law, THE MOTHERSHIP 011 has but one remaining 
week to take their revenge upon MYNOCK MAELSTROM for the slaying of EREKOSE.  My 
hearty congratulations BLAGO GRUNGE, for thy revenge upon PSEUDO DRAGON, slayer of 
thy fallen comrade.  Next time he will know better, eh?  FLEUR DU MAL, may you 
forever slay thy enemies with impunity as you did SUPER COLLIDER.  Are there none 
left in THE MOTHERSHIP 011 who hold honor as a virtue?  Dark alleys may hide both 
secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep 
vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed a 
stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
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.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Nice column, Ramirus! -- LP

I'm very lucky, 4 rookies and not one DA bait... they wont be stars, but they should
be able to hold the ground. -- LP, managering again from scratch

Barbarossa -- Sheesh!  Took I went WAY longer than I thought I would in that fight.
That was pretty scary! -- Chakor

Guy De Chaulic -- Man we are both scrawny things aren't we?  Thought you had me
there.  :cough: -- Weezy

Gertrude Stein -- Wow, normally I swing back!  I couldn't quite pull the trigger in
that fight.  Maybe next time! -- Dotar Sojat

Vilmar -- No skills!?  I need them, trust me -- Devoeaux

TURNION :   CHASE continues to OWN
__CHASE : 8-3-0
__DMOB  : 7-6-0
__PAGAN : 1-7-0

AGRIPPA -- ...Go Away... -- KHEIR

VISIONIST -- I see you are getting in your shots while the getting is good. -- PAGAN

CHASE -- That was a cool fight between Apyko and H.Centipede.  Lots of neat things
happening.  Apyko came up 1 swing short of taking the win. -- PAGAN

CHASE + DMOB -- Now that I have had a few rounds to look at favs and strats, I expect
my team to start making a run in the TURNION ! -- PAGAN

ALL -- Hmmm, Top Team, team on the move and the throne?  Heh, not a bad week if I say
so myself... -- Mordraith, Some Kinda Hate

Degotti -- Sadly, I doubt there will be much bloodshed in the near future.  Vanek's
scrubs are ranked so low the gladiatorial commission won't allow any challenges. --
Mordraith, SKH

PAGAN(!) -- If you are trying to get to the top, those 0-5 turns got to stop.  And
losing to Vanek is shameful, you're better than that man! -- Mordraith, SKH

Incredible Hulk -- They say the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over
and over and expecting different results.  You might want to rethink challenging
us... -- Mordraith, SKH

Blink Dog -- I applaud your attempt to avenge yor team-mate, no shame in losing to a
more skilled warrior. -- Slim Chance

Chop Chop -- We'll just roll it away. -- Garbage Truck

Axel -- Revenge for my friend! -- Nightleaf

Gorshok -- Well fought! -- Rexilia

Hominid -- I feel like a Kentucky fried idiot. -- Rask

     But the honey-mustard dipping sauce helps.

Skilord -- Feel the burn! -- Rope Burn
