turns 73-74 and 75-76.
Four members of the original team graduated, Angus, Borne, Krek and Llud.  The fifth
original member died on turn 8 at the hands of HERIBERT of the guild Of WOLF AND MAN.
Longbeards and death.  Fifty four warriors have fought by torch light in the Dark
Arena and 2 have returned.  The Clan has had 10 warriors die in the arena, they all
fought with honor.

                                  New Returning

     Havoc paced back and forth.  The room wasn't small, but it did feel somewhat
cramped by just a pair of high-backed leather chairs and a modest round table sitting
in the middle of its colorful tile floor.  Every once in a while Havoc paused to look
out the casement window.
     Given that it was a private room secreted high inside the thick walls of the
Acropolis, the view was, he had to admit, pretty decent.  The window faced the
northeast, so the afternoon sun was not in his eyes.  The eclectic collection of
gothic steeples and bulbous rooftops cast forbidding shadows over most of
Shadowspire.  The edge of the bay glittered like a well-polished broadsword as the
last rays of sunlight struck it.  To the west, just at the edge of his viewpoint, the
luxuriant forest spread across the horizon in a dark leafy mass, starkly outlined by
strands of rose-tinted clouds.
     He toyed with the latch and considered opening the window to catch a whiff of a
breeze, but decided that against it.  Somehow (and probably Arcane knew how) the
Acropolis managed to keep its interior air cool and comfortable, despite the soul-
searing heat outside.  He shrugged and resumed pacing.
     A gentle rapping on the thick door caused Havoc to pause, one thickly calloused
hand just touching the pommel of his broadsword.
     "Yeah?"
     The 'click' of the handle was followed by the ponderous swing of the door into
the room.  A young woman, her dark hair dangling in a thick ponytail, brought in a
wide serving tray and set it on the table.  She was wearing the typical Acropolis
attire--sandals, silk pantaloons that hung low on her hips, and a too-small sequined
vest that strained against a leather thong woven back and forth its narrow front.
She avoided eye contact with Havoc, but managed a deft catch of the coin he tossed
her as she was leaving.  She bowed her head briefly and closed the door behind her
with a definitive 'thunk'.
     Havoc checked the door, and decided to bolt it.  Then he swung his attention to
the tray.  A large silver pitcher, condensation dripping down its sides, sat between
a small covered bowl and a dull, pewter tankard.  The sides of both were adorned with
engravings of gladiators killing and dying.  Havoc chuckled mirthlessly as he poured
from the pitcher.  It was a dark, frothy liquid--an amber-red fluid with an aroma of
cinnamon and raisins and steel.  Expensive, probably, thought Havoc, but he took a
small swallow and sloshed it around in his mouth anyway.
     It was very good.  Refreshing, even... Havoc shook his head with a wry smile.
The Kid knew how to pick his drinks.  Havoc drained the tankard and was in the
process of refilling it when an excruciating shriek pierced his ears.  Havoc winced
and almost dropped the pitcher.  He turned and glared at an oval of purple light as
it coalesced in front of the window.
     The shrieking noise died as a slim youth materialized.  His face was narrow and
somewhat pale; his eyes carried an amused tilt above a sharpish nose and a thin smirk
of a mouth.  The youth wore a suit of leather armor, ornately tooled with scrolls and
flowers and polished brass studs set into its seams.  A thick sky-blue cloak of wool
hung to his knees.  Sturdy leather sandals, also decorated lavishly with stampings
and studs, were strapped tightly to his narrow feet.
     "Sorry I'm late," said the Arcane Kid with a smile.  "Ship's business."
     Havoc grimaced and resumed filling his tankard.  He adjusted his scabbard and
flung himself into one of the two chairs.  The well-oiled leather squeaked a bit as
he settled into its deep padding.  Havoc stared at one of the tapestries and took a
healthy gulp.  The Kid simply stood and watched for a couple of minutes while Havoc
stared at the embroidery.
     "Well, let's get to it, shall we?"
     "Hhhhmmmggghhhh," muttered Havoc, his mouth still fastened to his tankard.
     "How do the new recruits look to you?"
     Havoc finally turned his head to stare angrily at the Kid.  "Just like I
expected 'em to!" he growled.  "They suck!"
     Arcane chuckled and made his graceful way to the opposite chair.  He swept back
his cloak and sat down in one smooth, controlled movement.  The two locked eyes with
each other for another couple of minutes before the Kid finally broke off and looked
up, laughing softly at the ceiling.  Havoc emptied the rest of his flagon and slapped
it down on the table.
     "I'm sure you can do something useful with them," the Kid said, once again
looking Havoc dead on.  "Perhaps making them into offensive styles and giving them
ridiculous, all-or-nothing strategies?"
     "Yeah, sure!" Havoc rumbled.  "They either kill or get killed, is that yer
idea?"  Arcane shrugged noncommittally.  "Yeah, and then the rest o' the team looks
at me like I'm their worst enemy... I don't need that kinda drama, Kid."  Havoc shook
his head and closed his eyes.  "I really don't!"
     "Do with them what you will," Arcane said with a nonchalant wave into the air.
"We're flying blind.  We've been gone a while and we don't really know what we're
dealing with here."
     "And who's to blame for THAT?!" Havoc thundered, coming to his feet and glaring
down at the Kid.  "Do I gotta remind ya who decided to leave the arena in the first
place?!"
     Arcane looked over his shoulder and out the window and gave a deep sigh.
     "Kid, I know you said you had yer reasons, but this time--THIS TIME--ya KNOW we
gotta run into teams we ain't seen in a while.  They'll think we scampered off,
yellow and frightened of our own shadow, and--"
     "Who cares what anyone else thinks?" Arcane interjected.  ""I think you're 
taking this too seriously."
     "What??!!" Havoc sputtered.  "Hey, I don't know 'bout you, but I gotta rep in
this town, and I..."  Havoc clenched his teeth and growled.  "I gotta face Bobbi
again, and them guys from Monster Manual and Dragonbane Guild, they'll probably try
to rub our faces in it..."
     "You're not serious?" Arcane pursed his thin lips twisted his face into a
speculative frown.  "I doubt if they even remember us."  He shook his head.
     "Aaarrgghh!" Havoc roared.  "I can't talk to you like this!"
     He turned swiftly and went to the window.  He unlatched it and pushed it open; a
swirl of aromas and warm air swept into the small room.  Havoc thrust his face half
out of the window casement and stared down at the darkening shadows of the city.
     Arcane sighed again.  One slim hand touched the designs on his leather
breastplate; he ran his long fingers along the patterns absently while he stared at
the tile floor.
     "You're right, of course," whispered the Kid .  "I pulled the plug and there's
no wholly acceptable excuse.  I'm sorry now I did it, but on the other hand..."  The
Kid shrugged and shook his head and closed his eyes.
     Havoc pulled his head inside and closed the window, latching it and letting his
hand linger on the mechanism while he shaped his next thought.
     "There's a lot more to running a ship like the Outworlder than you probably
realize," murmured Arcane.  With his eyes closed and his head bowed, Havoc thought
for a moment he might be--praying?  "It can be very, very... draining."
     "Yeah?" Havoc growled.  "Maybe.  So what?"
     The Arcane Kid chuckled silently and shook his head again, but he kept his eyes
closed.  Havoc studied him for a few moments before turning to face the window again.
He placed his beefy arms on the wide ledge and watched the lantern lights spring up
below.  After a long while he turned again and faced the Kid, who was still sitting
in the chair with his head bowed and his eyes closed.
     "We gonna hang around for a while this time?" Havoc muttered.
     Arcane sighed deeply and opened his eyes.  He looked up into Havoc's grim
expression.  "Well, we're no longer at the absolute bottom of the rankings," smiled
Arcane wistfully.  "So why not?"
     Havoc's eyes gleamed and his face broke into a wicked smile.  "Yeah.  Why not?"

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome SHADOWSPIRE.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Looking for a good 
fight, confident, skilled, tough opponents.  Well don't look at OTTO'S DINER, cause 
they dropped by 11.  Up 'n down.  Up 'n down.  Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  
I think I'm gonna be...  Well, THE COMMODORES' 4th moved them up to 5-0-0 place.  It 
seems so recently people were saying CULT OF BACCHUS was washed up, finished.  But 
3-0-0 moved them up 0.  I guess they're washed no more...  What's with POUDREUX?  He 
actually beat WARMASTERS' THELONIUS, and walked away with 29 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at WARMASTERS.  THELONIUS lost 21 points to POUDREUX.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe THELONIUS will provide more easy wins...  Another fighter 
(HAULIN' OATS 24-21-1) challenged another Duelmaster (GERTRUDE STEIN 15-6-1).  Life 
goes on.  I'm sure SHADOWSPIRE is excited about HAULIN' OATS, the new Duelmaster from 
OTTO'S DINER.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  Wouldn't it be 
nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses 
of convicted prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, SOME KINDA 
HATE!  Management must be dealin', as the boys at WARMASTERS ain't reelin'!  SOME 
KINDA HATE's mad!  What do people see in LEGIONE STELLA?  His 2-3-0?  SEARCH THE SKY 
ain't talkin', but he's got 9 points.  Keep challenging up 26 points, DIRTY WHITE 
MOTHER, and I won't have to write about you much longer.  OSIRUS always accepts those 
kind of challenges...  DIRTY WHITE MOTHER did pretty good last week in beating OSIRUS 
to get 19 points.  Why did OSIRUS lose, you ask?  Simple:  he wasn't good enough.  
AGRIPPA expects the easy win by going 22 points down.  DR. CHUD will find this a hard 
lesson!  AGRIPPA subdued DR. CHUD.  I bet AGRIPPA could beat two-year-olds, too.  
Well, SOME KINDA HATE knows who to set their sights on.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Sending a warrior to the Dark Arena reminds the 
others they'd better shape up.  Tough beans, TUVEK.  That's what a 8-8-2 gets you.  
SON OF SEITAN was plum wore out after LOST LETTER pounded 'im silly in a Bloodfeud.  
OTTO'S DINER'll have to get a little better before going after LOST LETTER again!  
MAD SCIENTIST larned his lesson (GNOMETRADAMUS taught it well), and we right likely 
won't be seein' 'im fight any CULT OF BACCHUS members with the same gusto.  Here's 
some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  
SHADOWSPIRE is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time 
for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Arena.  It is my only hope for FREEDOM! -- Grape

Rube -- You're a big ol' boy, ain't ya? -- Love Pink

Schoolbus Driver -- Seeing as how I have no one to bloodfeud with who stands a chance
of beating you... apology accepted. -- Living Colour, mgr Colorful

Nice to see some new and returning faces here in Shadowspire.  Welcome Deer Lake
Boneyard and welcome back Club Cutthroat.  Glad to have you here. -- Vanek, Manager
of Warmasters

Hominid -- Yeah, that was uncalled for.  I am still walking with a limp. -- Caligula

Druecke Space -- I almost had you.  I am convinced I could beat you on a rematch,
especially on my own challenge. -- Nero

Cult of Bacchus -- 2 graduates in 1 turn.  Pretty impressive, congrats. -- Vanek

All -- Remember next turn is turn 200!  Let's try to get everyone to send in a

you there next turn. -- The Rest of the Squad

Kid Arcane -- Time to take your face off the side of the milk jug...  You ready to
pick up where we left off? -- Mordraith, SKH

(ONE skill?? Really??) -- Cassiopeia

fight next time.  I didn't even get a chance to hit back!! -- Legione Stella

Blago Grunge -- That some sort of code for "Walking Dead"?  Oh, sorry.  "Standing
Around Dead"? -- Monoceros

Shadowspire -- Happy Turn 200.  I couldn't sit this one out.  We'll see how it goes
but I wouldn't count on me for 201. -- Elephant

Search the Sky -- Welcome back!  We had thought that Mordraith had run you out of
town.  He is known for being ruthless! -- DeGotti

I can't say I'm real excited about my replacements! I'll give them a run out, tho! --

Happy 200th turn Shadowspire!  I'm glad the Cult has been present for over 120 of
them!

Search The Sky -- Glad to see you back.  We hope your return is a permanent one. --
Vanek, Manager of Warmasters

Sisyphus -- Come back for another beating because I just got played....really!?  You
were owned in 3 out of 4 bloodfeud fights and that qualifies you for bragging rights
some how?  Lol, you're a moron my simple little friend.  What's the old saying?  Even
a blind squirrel finds a nut from time to time. I think you've suffered one too many
hits to the head and I look forward to making you kill #36 for our stable. --
Thelonius

Of Wolf and Man -- We were disappointed to learn that your return was simply an
accident.  We hope you'll reconsider and return to the sands soon. -- Vanek

Shadowspire -- 200 turns already?  Wow, where does the time go?  We hope each of you
has enjoyed your time here as much as we have.  Here's to another 200 turns here in
Shadowspire! -- Vanek
