                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Rummer smiled over at her from his director's chair.  Distractedly, she waved the 
makeup assistant off and frowned at him.  The daguerreotypist looked on expectantly 
with equipment at the ready. 
     "You got this, Lisichka," Rummer assured her.  "Nice and easy.  Remember, this 
has to convey all the dignity of the office of Duelmaster, the mighty heritage of 
Shadowspire, and the gravitas of Pray The God's first ascension to the Throne.  So 
don't screw this up.  Ok, on me in three... two... one, action!" Rummer barked. 
     "All right," Lisichka drawled.  "Any of you suck holes wanna come up here and 
knock me off?"
     "Cut!!" Rummer was suddenly beet red.  "Stick to the damn script!  Now again!  
Three... two... one, action!"
     She tilted her head, nodded and raised one eyebrow.  "Allo.  My name is Lisichka.  
You killed my teammate.  Prepare to d-"
     "CUT!!!" Rummer looked apoplectic.  "No more ad libs, and I mean it!"
     "Anyone want a peanut?" she asked, looking around at the crew.
     "Action!"
     Lisichka stared into the mirror.  As if talking to herself, she began muttering.  
"One bloodfeud and that's it," she said.  "Don't be rude, kill Hakeem," she continued, 
pausing to waggle a finger at herself in the mirror.  "But do it quickly.  Say 
goodnight, and go home."  She paused, looking down thoughtfully.  Taking a deep 
breath, which she let out forcefully, she turned to the other mirror.  "You see, this 
is a moral test of one's self.  Whether or not you can maintain loyalty to your 
teammates.  Because being loyal is very important.  So, you're going to go out there, 
kill Hakeem, say 'I've had a very lovely fight', walk off the sands, get in the coach, 
go home and rub one out.  And that's all you gonna do!"  
     "CUT!" Rummer called, beaming.  "Brilliant!"

                                      SPY REPORT

Phineas is off this cycle as he travels to report on the upcoming Dead Tournament.  
Morbid stuff that!  So, until his return, you get me, Intern Abe for all your spy 
reporting needs.  I do not have the experience of that penny-pinching media mogul.  I 
am not as tall or wealthy as Phineas, nor do I have what others would consider good 
hygiene.  But I do have . . . a very short attention span because I forgot where I was 
going with this.  Nevermind!  Lets just get to the news for Shadowspire!

We have a new top dog in town and his name is Stray Cat.  Oh, what is that?  He 
prefers to be called Top Cat rather than top dog?  Well, Stray, you can speak to the 
Gladiatorial Copyright Office about that request.  Until then, you're the top dog!  JE 
and Errata are proud of their newest Duelmaster, I assume.  I never actually asked a 
manager if they are proud of their warrior's accomplishments.  I just assume success 
brings pride.  JE, are you proud of your warrior?  The opposite of pride is humility, 
and it looks as Lishchka, our former Duelmaster, ate a whole slice of humble pie this 
turn.  Stray Cat and Lishchka fought bravely for 2 turns, but in the end, we crown a 
new Duelmaster.

Apart from a very busy Dark Arena this cycle, the deaths were relatively few.  Swabbin 
Steve has scrubbed his last poop deck for Shanghaied as he was executed by Heatwave.  
Steve leaves behind a very sad mop and bucket.  Also making a brief and final 
appearance on Shadowspire's sands we have Neonicotinoid from The Monsantis.  I have no 
idea what a neonicotinioid is, but I have the sneaking suspicion I am going to need a 
pipe and an alibi before the night ends.  The other 8 deaths came via our Dark Arena.  
Most were new, untested recruits, but Bone Munchers and Search the Sky sent a few 
seasoned Initiates to try their luck Black Orc and Shewish Giant.

And here comes the Ad Nauseam Bit of Info for the Week, which is Big Lake Outcasts is 
the most avoided team, while Cult of Bacchus was the busiest avoiding them.  We have 
narrowed it down to Big Lake Outcast's body odor or their constant down challenges as 
the reason for all these avoids, but the jury is still out.  And, the jury is scared.  
A bit smelly from hanging around the Big Lake Outcasts' guild, but certainly 
trembling.  Mykul of The Mongoloids II was the most challenged warrior this turn.  
Suicide Seed was unlucky enough to get the challenge through to Mykul.  Mykul beat 
Suicide Seed in 1 minute.

In the "Dude, What's Up with That?!" category this week we find Hateful Desire of Big 
Lake Outcasts going down 19 points to fight Mt. Dew:  Code Red of Scorpio Likes:.  Big 
Lake Outcasts also sent Dave Lebies down 11 points to face The Empress Wu of Darque 
Ages.  No surprises in these fights as the higher ranked warriors won.  White 
Lightning of Inebriation also sought to pick the low handing fruit by challenging down 
9 to Pheare of Doom Brigade.  Though Philthy Phil's math skills come into question as 
we find Sailor Jeffry challenging up 25 points to Peeking Duck of Otto's Diner.  Did 
you know that was a 25 point upswing and not down? 

Looking at the movers and shakers this turn in the team rankings finds Shanghaied 
pushed out the number 1 spot by Cult of Bacchus.  The Cult's 2 kills over the past 3 
turns are good enough to beat out Inebriation for the top spot.  Search the Sky and 
Scorpio Likes: share the biggest leap award for the turn.  Both teams rose 10 spots 
with Search the Sky enjoying a 3-2-0 turn, while Scorpio sophomore turn brings a 3-1-0 
for a jump to 16th in the ranks.  Some Kinda Hate dropped 9 spots from 2nd down to 
11th.  However, the biggest drop of the turn belongs to Darque Ages.  Their 1-4-0 
cause them to plummet 10 spots to 13th.

Hopefully, I will still have a job come next cycle.  Sidara, the reporter over in 
Seam, keeps telling me about the end of the cosmos as we know it.  She keeps spouting 
off some non-sense about blood, moons, and bear cubs.  It is all quite confusing for 
my young mind.  Oh well, if the worlds still exist next turn, I'll see you then!

All -- SCORPIO LIKES: to lose to Crambus twice in the same turn.  SCORPIO LIKES: to 
see his sissies die by the hands of Crambus's marvelous warriors.  SCORPIO LIKES: 
playing with My Little Pony toys. SCORPIO LIKES: to tickle his own feet. -- Crambus, 
Head Court Jester of the AA and manager of WAR MACHINE

VANEK -- With 2 minutes of opportunity, you failed to turn the sails on my WAR 
MACHINE.  Any fool could beat that embarrassment I call HAVANA BLACK, regardless of 
their ranking.  The time it took you to type that message in the forums you could've 
sent an email putting your team on maintenance.  So I think you're telling me a story, 
chicken.  With your absence this turn, I call the deal off.  I'm not going anywhere, 
you had your chance to be a star and sat on it. -- Crambus

MORDRAITH -- You've silent in the PA's, keep it that way. -- CRAMBUS

All -- Pardon our dust while we remodel. -- Pray The Gods

Allezles -- Good fight and a bit of a surprise for me.  Thanks the throne, however 
briefly I may hold it! -- Lisichka

Hakeem -- Well played against our old friend 'Yoshe.  A bit of an embarrassment, 
actually.  It seems the perfect storm of arena events has conspired to put me atop the 
throne and one of only two people on the team that could exact revenge.  Who am I to 
say "no" to a bloodfued that brings with it the possibility of a 3-0-3 Hakeem as 
Duelmaster? -- Lisichka

NBA Legends -- The fight is yet young and we look forward to a long, long discussion. 
-- Pray The Gods 

Four-Eyed Floyd -- Unfortunately, all those hits to the neck were only superficial and 
were able to be stopped with some toilet paper! -- Krow

No-Teeth Keith -- Quarterstaff be ending the lives of One-Eyed AB's, since turn 228! 
-- Hollowsoul

Vanek -- So you want to start that up again, do ya? -- DeGotti

Scorpio Likes: Den as a cross dresser? AA Members? Being the center of attention? 
Well, whatever your likes, welcome to Shadowspire! -- DeGotti 

Shadowspire -- I would like to introduce you to a manager named Scorpio, evidently he 
tossed a few "deuces" at some of you last turn.  Not sure what that means or feels 
like, but I hope you enjoyed it.  You will find yourself reading his ads multiple 
times as they are written in broken speak, hard to decipher, monosyllabic, and purely 
foolish.  Having him here will help you pad your record, which is exactly what Lady 
Mordraith needs.  Heck, even Otis the Tourney Prepper might be able to beat this guy. 
-- Den

Scorpio -- Welcome to Shadowspire, dunderhead.  In case you were wondering about your 
future, you will fail here as you have everywhere.  Your record will be under 20% just 
like everywhere.  You will probably hide behind Lady Mordraith's skirt.  Oh, I came up 
with some additional warrior names for you to use as your garbage piles die off: dirty 
socks, bad breath, bathroom visits, Otis's warts, Otto's hair, Hombre's belly, wishing 
he knew his dad, welfare, free stuff, smelly things, losing, chipped teeth, yellow 
teeth, back hair, touching dead animals, simple math, when people talk slow, paralyzed 
women, 3 legged cats, unions, soiled underclothes, and losing.  Yes, I would name at 
least 2 guys "losing", it is your passion after all. -- Den

Barbarossa -- How about we fight again? -- Mr. Dave Lebeis

Empress Wu -- Every time I hear your name, I want to kill something. -- Dicky 
Tourville
