(Contributor's note:  This was originally to appear as SKP's final DM column, but I 
missed the deadline to go to press.  So, it is presented here for your enjoyment.)

    So, here we are again, and guess who's still on top!  Yes, it's me, your loveable, 
slightly overmatched Duelmaster.  This week's fight was a challenge from Dave Lebeis 
from one of the many AA teams.  His record was formidable at 22-9, but his approach 
was ill-considered.  His strategy seemed to be to get me to pass out from wretching 
over the sight of his entrails spilling onto the sand.  Dave, Dave, Dave.....did you 
forget where I work?!?  It takes a lot more than a little blood & gore to turn my 
stomach.  I've seen what (and who) goes into the sausage press.  It ain't pretty, 
lemme tell ya.
    It's not all his fault, I guess.  My poor record makes me an inviting target.  
What may have escaped your attention is that after running up a 9-17 record, I 
discovered my favorite weapon, the scimitar.  Since that day I am 7-2, and according 
to my trainer, have become quite threatening.  I thought maybe Otto just paid him to 
say that, but the record speaks for itself.
    Which brings me to my next point.  I GRADUATED!!!!  For those of you curious, my 
stats are 17-9(1)-6-13-17-6-17 PL, good/good, Master parry, AdEex init & attack.  I am 
the 13th graduate from Otto's Diner, but more importantly, the first parry-lunge, and 
the tenth and final style to complete Otto's quest for the vaunted Round Robin badge 
here in Shadowspire.
    So, after all that, I don't really care who I fight in this my last turn in 
Shadowspire.  I bid you all a fond farewell and look forward to my retirement on the 
Isle.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings to each of you on this wonderful day!  What is so wonderful about it 
you ask?  It is fight day in Shadowspire!  If you cannot get excited about that, why 
are you even reading this?  Bah, bunch of young whippersnappers!  Just listen and I 
will tell you all you need to know about turn 226.
     Thelonius vacates the arena and the title as he leaves for the Isle of the Eye.  
He goes out on a positive note, beating Cult Slayer.  It was a 37 FE down challenge to 
avenge a fallen comrade, but who is keeping track?  Oh wait, I am!  With the throne 
now empty, many worthy warriors made their bid for the title.  Allezles Keus (say that 
three times really fast) of La Pentarchie defeats Shamino of The Commodores to slip 
into the title of Duelmaster!  Unlike the previous two Duelmasters, Allezles Keus is 
NOT graduating next turn, so he can defend the title and potentially be seated there 
next turn.  There are many worthy opponents in the Challenger Champions to make next 
turn exciting and worth watching.
     Along with Thelonius, Mr Brain Smasher has fought his last fight in Shadowspire.  
We wish both of you luck if you choose to continue your fighting careers on the Isle.  
May you represent Shadowspire with honor and pride!  Dirty White Mother of Wicked 
Martyrs gets the call to immortality.  Congratulations Lord Protector!  Enjoy your new 
title and the benefits that come with it.
     My scroll-writing golems are going to get complacent when it comes to reporting 
the most avoided team.  Big Lake Outcasts must be feared in Shadowspire because they 
have been avoided a lot as of late.  Shanghaied ran away the most, but they certainly 
can't be alone since Den and his Outcasts keep making the list.  Zathog was the most 
challenged warrior.  I cannot express my disappointment enough when the most 
challenged warrior is not the Duelmaster.  There is at least a reason for excuse this 
turn, as the reigning Duelmaster was off to the Isle and his team was actively 
involved in a blood feud.  Were managers making judicious challenges or cowardly ones?  
You be the judge!
     There were no major down challenges to report apart from our Duelmaster.  It was 
a blood feud, so some managers are of the opinion that it does not count.  Wilt the 
Stilt went down 9 points to fight Dunya of Pray the Gods.  Relatively even in FE, 
Dunya lost the match. Shanghaied takes over the top team spot from The Commodores by 
the slimmest of margins, 1 win!  Warmasters made the the biggest gain moving up 14 
places to 7th.  The biggest drop, or drunken stumble depending on who is telling the 
story, belongs to Inebriation who fell from 8th to 16th.
     A few warriors met their end on turn 226.  The deaths were evenly split between 
the Dark Arena and the regular sands.  The red ink was flowing on the fight paperwork 
this turn as many sought revenge for fallen teammates.  There were more blood feuds 
than deaths this turn.  All the blood feuders were successful, save one!  Baby Crambus 
was not able to bring closure to his stablemates for the loss of Ayla.  Bailey of 
Wicked Martyrs has two more turns to look over his shoulder for creeping, vengeful 
cult members.
     All the news worth reporting is now before you.  Do with it what you will!  I 
look forward to seeing you next turn.  On behalf of the Commission and The Yellow 
Press, I take my leave.

Magic -- I'd call that sweet justice, that's what.  Oh wait...  Magic?  Magic? -- 
Rummer

Lagertha -- Hammer to the head, almost got dead!  You might not fail if you ditched 
the war flail! -- Shaga

Valeros -- You're welcome. -- Lisichka

Ill Wind -- Apropos!  The stench, if not your skill, was impressive. -- Dunya  

Credits -- I don't think I even realized you were from the manual when I made the 
challenge.  The name is clever, but not what I typically expect.  Perhaps the problem 
has to do with credits being boring? -- Dragonscythe

Mr. Pigg Stuff -- Maybe I just need someone with fewer fights?  There are so many 
above me in the rankings given my record.  At least you helped me out a bit with that. 
-- Humdrum

OMFUG -- That was brutal. -- Brutal Grunge

Dunya -- Got that one. -- Ill Wind

One Eyed Clyde -- One eye seems like a bad idea.  What if I manage to claw that one?  
And what about depth perception?  Perhaps that was the problem? -- Disciple

This arena needs some pikers and slashers!  Let's go folks, not everyone needs to be a 
lunger or striker! 		 	   		  

Otto -- Congrats on the Round Robin.  Always an impressive accomplishment. -- NBA 
Legends

Apshai -- Oops!  I guess that wasn't the best challenge. -- Ghost of Magic

Den -- I apologize for being so harsh to you in the personals. You are a shining star 
amongst the rest of us dull lights in Shadowspire, nay, all of Alastari. You are a 
true ambassador to the game. Attacking another manager is not like me. Must be the 
jealousy of that good nature and fortune that you spew forth from the depths of the 
rankings. I am sure to be humbled when you post your career numbers, and I post mine. 
I will rue the day that I ever crossed paths with the mighty Den. -- Otis the Drunk

Nah, you spray paint a turd gold, it's still a turd.  You suck, Den.

Crambutt, how did the little DC fit ya?

Fenn -- But I have been hitting the gym! -- Bryuhn

Aratheer -- You at least owe me a dinner after all those skills I taught you. -- 
Brooss

Disciple o Claw -- Who said "go"? -- One-Eyed Clyde

Ulah Pegahour -- Nice swashbucklin' weapon you got there. Be careful you don't get 
"recruited" by BlackHart. -- Four-Eyed Floyd

Hateful Desire -- They warned me you were an experienced warrior. Uncle Jim's Beard, 
but I expected more outta you, son. -- Two-Finger Tony

Moon Maiden -- Damn you're a tall one. -- No-Teeth Keith

Shortleap -- Shortleap...meet short spear. -- Three-Toe Joe
