                                      SPY REPORT

     Whoever coined the phrase "short and sweet" in relation to the news needs to be 
flogged!  Not every story worth reporting can be crammed into a small column and the 
news that sells the papers is rarely sweet.  The phrase itself needs some editorial 
work done to it, but that is a topic for another day!  You are here for news about 
Shadowspire.  Well my friends, you have come to the right place.  Pull up a chair and 
I shall relate to you all the news that is worthy of reporting for Turn 227.
     Allezles Keus is the first repeat Duelmaster in a number of turns.  He is in fact 
the first Duelmaster that has had the opportunity to repeat for a number of turns.  
All others attained the throne and were promptly invited to the Isle of the Eye.  
Congrats to Allezles Keus and Le Pentarque for the excellent managing work to get him 
there.  Mykul from The Mongoloids II tried to take the throne for himself.  It was a 
lofty challenge, but Mykul's efforts fell short and after 2 minutes, Allezles Keus 
emerged the victor.  Allezles Keus is certainly one of our more interesting Duelmaster 
names, care to explain it, Le Pentarque?
     Den is once again the most avoided manager in Shadowspire.  I have asked the 
question before concerning everyone's fear for the Big Lake Outcasts, but no one has 
yet to give me an answer.  Shanghaied avoided them the most.  Perhaps Blackhart would 
like to enlighten the rest of us as to Big Lake Outcasts' repellent nature?  
Dragonbane Guild had a nice 4-1-0 showing.  Their loss was a big one, but more on that 
later.  Bone Munchers fell 11 spots after an 0-5 turn.  The Commodores came on strong 
with a 4-1 turn as well.  It was good enough for them to edge up 1 spot to the number 
3 position.
     Turn 227 is in the books and it will go down as one of the more deadly turns for 
Shadowspire in terms of losing experienced warriors.  More than one experienced 
warrior has fought his last on the sands this turn.  Dragonscythe entered the turn 
with a 16-5-1 record, a worthy accomplishment, and yet, he fell to Hakuna Frittata 
from Otto's Diner.  The other to fall was Le Chrurigen of La Pentarchie.  While his 
teammates have much to celebrate with Allezles on the throne, their moods will no 
doubt be tempered by the loss of their friend.  Ringo Deathstar was the slayer and 
wins the award for "Most Appropriately Named Killer" this week.  Hakeem killed 
Ceryoshe too.  While death is a reality for those in the arena, Pray the Gods will be 
restocking nearly their whole team as two others were sent to the Dark Arena.  Look 
for three new recruits next cycle!
     The feuders were busy this week.  We have already mentioned the fate of Ceryoshe, 
but what you may not have known is it occurred on a blood feud challenge by Ceryoshe 
to Hakeem.  Hakeem now has two Pray the Gods' deaths to answer for!  What does Vlad 
have left in the stable to discourage such deadly behavior from NBA Legends in the 
future?  Caligula has killed Cult Slayer in a blood feud challenge as well.  War 
Machine will only have one turn to avenge the death, as Caligula has gotten the call 
to immortality!
     Well, gladiator fans, there you have it.  It wasn't short, and it wasn't too 
sweet, but it was all the news worth reporting for this turn.  Join us next turn for 
the exciting action on Shadowspire's sands!  On behalf of the Commission and The 
Yellow Press, may Fortune shine upon you.
