                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out SHADOWSPIRE to 
see what's new.  Like, WARMASTERS had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off 
#1 spot by DRAGONBANE GUILD!  Way to go DRAGONBANE GUILD!  Uncool, ANTHROPOS KRATOS.  
I mean 1-4-0 is bad.  Will they will be allowed to fight?  I say use 'em for training 
practice!  DRAGONBANE GUILD like really fought hard to move up to 1st from 7th.  Way 
to go!  One team deserves special mention 'cause they moved up 6 after going 5-0-1.  
Keep it up, OTTO'S DINER!  MVP award for BRONKO?  WAR MACHINE's proud of him after 
beating GROND and getting 22 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  GROND's match 
with BRONKO cost him a loss of 22 points!  What a putz!  MAIMONIDES fights so hard to 
be Duelmaster, then quits fighting and loses the title.  No one said he was a 
genius...  And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh 
well, welcome YORKE.  Aren't CLAN LONGBEARD proud.  (Oh, my.) I hear the top team 
insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for 
PR photos.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  The warriors of SOME KINDA HATE must be getting lonely.  They were 
the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  Is there some deep 
dark secret why BIG LAKE OUTCASTS' been avoiding SOME KINDA HATE so much?  Or is it 
just that they're too scared?  Like, is MICKEY SLIM popular, or what?  He was 
challenged the most in all of SHADOWSPIRE!  He's got a 13-4-0, is that good?  Some 
fights are really unfair.  How do you think LUDWIG feels about being challenged by 
DAVE LEBEIS, 20 points above him?  I was sorry to see such an unfair "fight" in 
SHADOWSPIRE.  DAVE LEBEIS got 2 points after beating LUDWIG, 20 points below it.  For 
sure, I was holding my breath when I found out NERO challenged LORD BRITISH.  After 
all, haven't WARMASTERS and THE COMMODORES had a long standing duel in SHADOWSPIRE?  
It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but LORD BRITISH wants me to write about 
it since he was bested by NERO.  Satisfied?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All SHADOWSPIRE ever talks about is fighting! 
Me, I'm more laid back.  What a bunch of heartless!  I couldn't believe how many 
people were snickering when SON OF SEITAN killed FUSIBLE.  So he had a 10-9-0, that's 
no excuse!  What a bummer!  KHEIR got wasted by BLINK DOG!  But with a 9-8-1, I guess 
ANTHROPOS KRATOS aren't too bummed.  Like was that some Bloodfeud, or what?  (AXEL 
VON SPIRE vs. TUVEK, that is.) What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be 
out of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  I had a fun 
time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Sorry for not being very loquacious, but I need another mortal foe like Kellumbo!  I
see the Cult is threatening my ratio, but 1% can be steep near the top...  Anyway,
I'm flying to China next week, so I could miss the next two turns (?).  Have fun, and
try to write! -- LP

Nicely done, Vanek.... keep up the good work. -- LP

De'Ja Krew -- Oooof!  1-4 first turn out is pretty rough.  Hopefully you guys are not
easily detered... -- Mordraith, MGR. Some Kinda Hate

All -- Apologies for not gracing you all with my witty banter last turn, things have
been hectic at the guild house lately... -- Mordraith, SKH

Pagan -- Glad to see that.  The arena needs rivalry, after all... -- Mordraith

Gunner -- You're not the first gunner that I've put down... -- Simo Hayha

Blink Dog -- Don't blink... Dawg. -- Slim Chance

Axel Von Spire -- Has there ever been a more lucky warrior?  In the end my skill will
trump your luck... -- Lizzie
P.S.  Mine's bigger!

TURNION  :   Top Warriors

__DMOB   : 85 : Mickey Slim
__CHASE  : 51 : Obamacare
__PAGAN  : 51 : Geron  (Yay, I made the list!)

VANEK -- Keep the Bloodfeud going please (with someone who will Train Me or Kill Me!)
-- SISY

SLIME RICKEY -- You quit before I got my Kill Intent. -- GE

HUMAN CENTIPEDE -- Suck Me. -- AP

TUVEK -- A definite difference in skill. -- KH

Maimonides -- Luck of the roll was on your side that fight! -- Grimstones

Vanek -- Don't be mad because I don't waste avoids on your team!  I only have to
avoid teams that have a chance against my guys! -- DeGotti

De'Ja Krew -- Welcome to Shadowspire.  Keep your swords sharp and your shields
reinforced!  This is a tough arena! -- DeGotti

This arena certainly has seen better days!  Grimm, Trip, Kellumbo, Floyd, Consortium,
Doc LeGrand all gone, and by the sounds of it Darque and Visonist might be on on the
way out of town too!  Hopefully they won't go, and we can get a few more new teams
onto the sands! -- DeGotti

Turn #200 is almost upon us!  Let's get more active in the PAs and maybe write a spot
or two! -- DeGotti

Lizzie -- Ah!  Someone I can beat!  So, much the worse for you.  -- Axel

Seamstress -- Okay, so I know it seems a bit cheap to pick on someone with your
record, but then I looked at my record and thought, it seems a bit cheap to offer
someone fights against me!  So, we both got easy fights and one of us had to win it.
Thankfully, that was me.  Anyone else up here with a bad record? -- McGregor

Dirty White Mother -- I'm not sure what to make of that name.  I'm pretty sure my
Mother would be offended.  So just consider that I gave you the Grunge treatment for
her. -- Blago

Lord British -- Hhhmmm....  See the McGregor ad and consider that yours.  Or mine.
Or whatever.  Stinky records and even stinkier result.  Not a style matchup I
expected to lose.  That sort of thing doesn't bode well. -- Konstantin

Welcome to De'Ja Krew! -- Nomad and the Guild

Vanek -- Your killing ways?  The only thing you can kill is a pleasant scent when you
walk into a room. -- Den, High Priest of the Allied Axis

De'Ja Krew -- It sickens me that you score a single victory last turn.  I admire
perfection, and perfection would be you at a perfect 0-5.  Know this my simple little
child, I will work tirelessly to insure you never reach double digits in the win
column.  Of course with Clan Longbeard still in the arena, you will always have an
easy target for quick wins. -- Den

Crambus -- Welcome back to Shadowspire, where your hate can run rampant among an
ignorant population.  The managers here are pathetic and easy to beat, you shall
enjoy your return. -- Den

De Ja Krew -- Welcome to Shadowspire!  Glad to have you.  I hope you enjoy this arena
as much as the rest of us do. -- Vanek, Manager of Warmasters

Sisyphus -- Well, I am unsure why you begged for a rematch when the results ended up
being even more one sided than before.  I was going to end this after 2 turns, but
your goading me on has only encouraged me to continue.  [possibly snipped by hal] is
a charm for you?  -- Thelonius

Darque Ages -- I was certain that after last turn's 5-0 that I'd claim the Current
Top Team award, but then you had to go and block me!  J [possibly snipped by hal]
Maybe next turn? -- Vanek

Furry Fury -- Missed 2 turns in a row?  Did the competition around here scare you
off?  You've been quiet lately and Shadowspire seems boring without her favorite
villain chirping in the personal ads.  If you [possibly snipped by hal] that title
from you soon! -- Vanek

     Vanek -- Can you perhaps change the way you send your personals?  They came
     embedded in pages of formatting code, which is not only annoying in itself, it
     provokes hal to do its worst. -- Ed.
     P.S.  Among other things, hal totally does not "get" Wingdings.
