                                   Death and Taxes
     
     The heat was oppressive; it pounded at their heads; it poked them in their eyes; 
it sucked the sweat out of the fighters as they pushed through theri exercises, 
draining them of their strength and focus.
     Or, Havoc frowned, it could have something to do with the wake they had last 
night for Stratia.  He nodded to himself as he watched the team struggle in the sand 
pits.  The glare of the sun turned the pits into reflector ovens.  The hangovers most 
of them were nursing didn't help at all.
     "All right, all right!" Havoc clapped his hands a few times; the gladiators 
paused to look in his direction a couple of them wavered in the rippling heat.  "You 
guys look pretty beat.  Take the rest of the day off.  Drink some water."
     Havoc scooped up a handful of scorching hot sand and tossed it at the head of a 
nearby fighter wearing leather armor and a sickly, haggard expression.  "Ya hear me, 
Quark?  No booze!"
     Quark spat sand, flapping his hands across his face while shaking his head and 
staggering unsteadily toward the barracks.  He stumbled and fell as he left the pit.  
Havoc grinned.
     The fighters reeled to their rooms while Havoc made his way to the office.  A 
slender young man sat in the high-backed leather chair against the wall.  Havoc 
slammed the door closed.
     "I shoulda know you'd be here."  Havoc threw himself into his chair and glared 
through bloodshot eyes across his desk.  The Kid shrugged his narrow shoulders.
     "I brought the new recruit with me.  He's waiting in the chow hall."
     "We haven't finished clearing out Stratia's room," Havoc snorted.
     "Well, that's okay.  You didn't clean up after your little death party, either.  
By the way, who puked in the utensils drawer?  The cook didn't seem happy about it."
     Havoc exhaled slowly and leaned back.  "Right.  Sure.  I'll get the the new guy 
as soon as we're done here."
     Arcane made a thin smile and waved a slender hand in a dismissive gesture.  
"Don't worry about it.  I don't think this guy is going to mind waiting around."
     Havoc's eyes narrowed.  "Why do you say that, Kid?"
     Arcane pulled a thin folder out from behind him and tossed it onto the cluttered 
desk.  Havoc sighed, picked it up, opened it, and began to read.  After a few minutes 
he closed the folder and slammed it onto the desk.  He kept his eyes on the folder, 
refusing to look at the Kid.
     After a few more minutes Havoc finally leanded back, grimacing at the Kid as if 
he'd just tasted something sour or half-rotten.  "I can't believe you sometimes.  Can 
this fella even tell time?  Honestly, where do you find thes guys?"
     Arcane offered an apologetic shrug.  "Hey, he's what the Commission sends us.  
I've tried to bribe the prison officials, but Master Darque seems to have that market 
cornered."
     "Yeah, you were supposed to hack into that guy's racket," sneered Havoc.  "You 
had some great plan!"  He waved a meaty paw at the folder.  "This chump ain't going to 
last too long, Kid."
     "Who knows?  Stratia started with an expert rating; we thought she'd be around 
for quite a while."
     "Naw, she was too good to last long," muttered Havoc.  He shook his grizzled 
head.  "Okay.  Okay."  Havoc sighted.  "Now, how do you wanna handle the bloodfeud?  
Send Monoceros?"
     "Not hardly," Arcane sniffed.  "That's insulting for both parties.  Send Quark."
     "Him?" Havoc sat up and tilted his head in a silent question.  "You know this 
Vortex character hits pretty hard, don'tcha?  I'm guessing he does Great, maybe even 
Tremendous damage."
     Arcan's thin face twistd into a brief smile.  "There are plenty of gladiator 
hopefuls on tap.  Maybe the next recruit will be more.. motivated.  Or at least, 
capable of wearing heavy armor!"
     Havoc dropped his face into his hands, hes elbows on his desk, and wished he 
could cry.

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

    Hail, fair Shadowspire, 'tis I, your new Duelmaster.  I must say it has been a 
very long road for me to get here.  It's been 22 turns since my former teammate 
Haulin' Oats has sat atop the throne.  Since then many of Shadowspire's combatants 
have parked their fannies on this seat.  Which reminds me, where's that Lysol spray?  
Back then I was a struggling young gladiator with a 5-8 record, feeling overmatched in 
every bout.  But since then I've racked up an amazing 10-11 record, and become the 
slightly less overmatched champion you see before you.  And no, I don't think that 
Otto's offer of a free dinner to anyone who loses to me had any impact at all.  Nor 
was it very funny, Otto.
    So, this week's strategy will be to avoid everyone who can beat me, and there are 
many.  I think I'm going to need more avoid slots.  My challenges will go to those 
deemed more pathetic than me, and you know who you are.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for SHADOWSPIRE.  Like, NBA LEGENDS had to be 
so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by SOME KINDA HATE!  Way to go SOME 
KINDA HATE!  I couldn't believe it.  Did THE COMMODORES really go up by 11?  If only 
those guys didn't have so may missing teeth...  Gross!  Wanna hear about a real 
loser?  Listen to this--THE MONGOLOIDS II got 1-4-0 and dropped 12.  Didn't see much 
of them after the fights!  Cut this out and put it in your scrapbooks, OTTO'S DINER!  
'Cause they got 5-0-0 and moved up to 5th!  I talked to SHANGHAIED's manager before 
the fights.  He said, "We're gonna do good."  And look at this:  4-1-0!  Psychic, or 
what!  MVP award for URIAH CONN?  PHILANTHROPISTS 2's proud of him after beating 
GRIZZLY REMAINS and getting 23 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  APSHAI's match 
with DRY MOUTH MAX cost him a loss of 18 points!  Oh, wow, like the Duelmaster must 
be the most popular guy in all SHADOWSPIRE.  He got the most challenges.  (But what 
about proposals?) DAVE LEBEIS thinks its 22-10-0 and studly character is good enough 
to face up to the Duelmaster.  Any bets?  This Duelmaster is like something else!  
SOME KINDA PATE stopped DAVE LEBEIS dead in its tracks!  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 DARQUE AGES must be getting lonely.  They were the 
most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  Hhmph!  What kind of 
warriors are NBA LEGENDS?  DARQUE AGES, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't 
get them to accept an invitation!  People were asking me did ASTRI REALLY challenge 
POUDREUX?  (all right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't a 
spectacular fight, or anything, but POUDREUX wants me to write about it since he 
overcame ASTRI.  Satisfied?  MAGIC must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair 
fights.  He challenged MORDECAI MOUSE.  12 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what 
they tell me.) I thought MAGIC showed great skill and promise when he won victory 
over MORDECAI MOUSE.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What a bummer deal for AYLA!  She just 
barely was getting hers "fighter feet" but got kill by BAILEY of WICKED MARTYRS!  
Those're the breaks, I guess.  QUARK really fought hard against CEREBRAL VORTEX.  
That'll teach BONE MUNCHERS not to go and kill any of SEARCH THE SKY's guys again, 
huh!  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     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.  Remember 
you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Wilted The Jilted -- If I'm going to challenge down to Initiates from Challenger 
Champions, I'd at least like to get some kills.  Thanks in advance. -- Rummer

Banewander -- I ain't done with you by a damn sight.  I'm about to get medieval on 
your ass. -- Yoshe

Empress -- My kind thanks for the wisdom. -- Dunya

Cult Slayer -- Thought you were an NPC.   You certainly fought like one. -- Shaga

Stray Cat -- Hahahahaa...   Grats on THAT AdEx! -- Lisichka

Search the Sky -- Sorry for the fatal mauling of Stratia.  No one deserves to die like 
that.  It seems as though our teams can not stay out of each others' way. -- Bone 
Munchers

Otis the Spunkless -- Wow, talk about beating a horse to death, which I am sure you 
trailer-trash heathens do every week in order to have meat for food.  How many times 
does the arena have to be bored to death with your "me great and AA laughing stock" 
speech?  Seriously though, how many times?  The next time you are sitting around with 
your boys combing each other's mullets wondering why you are not brilliant like the 
AA, beautiful like the AA, or fun like the AA try to come up with something inventive.  
Granted, I know you have not had anything inventive in your body since the time you 
"accidently" sat on your Thomas Edison doll, but give it a try.  The sad truth is that 
we are known for something, and you are a nothing.  When your EBT card finally runs 
dry and you cannot fight anymore, nobody will ever talk about Otis the Tourney 
Prepping Plagiarizer, whereas the AA is woven into the very fabric of Alastari.  Sadly 
for you, you can combine all my active teams and my win percentage is probably better 
than yours.  Even sadder is that this actually means something to you.  Maybe keep 
with your efforts at trying to market the "Otis Teeth" which are a lot like Billy-Bob 

teeth only not as pretty and without the pleasing odor, instead of trying to succeed 
at something that is beyond your talent level.  Get a life, loser, they're really fun. 
-- Den, sitting on a social caste way above yours

DeGotti -- When you talk short lived, we take notice, as short lived is something you 
are an expert on.  All your relationships, short lived.  Your jobs, yep, short lived.  
Clean hair on you, again, short lived.  Fresh made pot of gruel around you, certainly 
short lived.  Fresh air in your vicinity, definitely short lived. -- Den

Fenn -- You had your chance, you got to swing first.  You should have hit me.  Oh, by 
the way, I hate you. -- Hateful Desire

All -- It is always nice to recognize true talent, so let's congratulate all of last 
turn's 1-4 teams.  Darque Ages, your skill certainly comes from a darkage, nice 1-4 
last turn.  Warmasters, I guess this isn't war, your 1-4 proved you are no master.  
Otto's Diner seems to only be able to beat eggs, and even those are marginal.  Bone 
Munchers named after something he does on prom night and still goes 1-4. Looking 
forward to what you wonders of management can do in turn 223. -- Den

Hombre -- I beat you again. -- Den

Canicule -- I thought this was going to be more of a Zen sort of exercise.  You played 
it way too seriously. -- Zenith

Cerebral Vortes -- That was a suprisingly long fight.  You were losing for three of 
the four minutes it lasted.  We'll try to wrap this up more quickly. -- Kid Arcane

Dragonscythe -- I just thought we'd dance while we waited for Astri to get into range.  
You know, test the waters.  Your very shallow waters.  How'd you manage to gain such a 
strong win/loss average?  You're terrible! -- Monoceros

Ryk the Dragon -- When I want sub-standard microwaved Chinese take-out delivered, I'll 
call you.  (Otto's doesn't deliver.)  Until then, go away and stop bothering me. -- 
Astri

Ayla -- Steroids make it difficult for you to control that temper, am I right?  (Not 
to mmention the appalling body odor!)  But, it makes it kinda hard for you to focus on 
the target, I noticed. -- Quark

NBA Legends -- Congratulations on winning Top Team, Teams on the Move, and Unchartered 
Recognition Leader.  Good job!  You even managed to draft a couple of personal ads... 
unlike the rest of these deadbeat managers.  I can't help wonder if there's anyone 
really tring to stop you.  Besides us, I mean. -- Kid Arcane

Rope Burn -- Well played! You have avenged your fallen comrade! -- Hollowsoul

Thelonious -- Nothing I could do about that FE disadvantage! -- Baby Crambus

I'm rather flattered that the AA has chosen to name warriors after my team (Cult 
Slayer) and myself (Loser DeGotti)!  Maybe my good looks and winning attitude 
will.....who am I kidding, they are run and designed by the AA after all! I'm shocked 
Den's guy even has a winning record! -- DeGotti

Quark -- An ambitious challenge there!  It was back and forth for a bit, but we both 
knew I'd eventually prevail! -- Ayla
