                                      SPY REPORT

Hello Shadowspire!  It is me again, Intern Abe.  Phineas' copy of last cycle's spy 
report got "lost" in the mail, so he has not read it.  I get to keep my job a few more 
weeks, at least until he returns from reporting on the tournament.  I cannot think of 
anything worse than watching rotted corpses fling decayed body parts around the arena 
sands.  Oh wait, yes I can.  The worse scenario would be cleaning up the mess 
afterwards!  I bet they have interns for that!  I may check into that gig if Phineas 
fires me.

We have a new Duelmaster once again.  This title was won through the blood, sweat, and 
tears of... well, no one.  Stray Cat did what stray cats do best and made himself 
scarce for this turn's fights.  Word is that I offended Stray Cat last turn by calling 
him the arena's top dog!  But alas, we may never know the truth.  Instead of a normal 
title defense, we witnessed Hakuna Frittata challenge Gnometradamus, and this bout was 
magically transformed into our title fight for the turn.  Okay, there was nothing 
magical about it.  It took 6 minutes for Gnometradamus to beat Hakuna Frittata and 
ascend to the throne of Shadowspire.  Congrats to DeGotti and his Cult of Bacchus 
guild on taking the throne.  Hopefully, we will see a Duelmaster's column next turn 
(hint, hint).

Otto's Diner avoided Big Lake Outcasts the most this turn.  Is anyone really surprised 
that Den's crew is the most avoided?  As we have noted in the past, massive down 
challenges will get you noticed and avoided often.  Gnometradamus took the throne and 
also gets the distinctions as being the most challenged warrior this turn.  Who knew 
that a Parry Riposte would get so much attention in the upper ranks of the arena?  
I've just been informed that everyone knows that, so never mind!  Errata was the only 
inactive team this cycle, which cost JE the throne and popularity leader.  It was 
surely a costly absence.  We want to welcome Warm & Fuzzy to Shadowspire!  May your 
stay with us be long and prosperous!

There were only two non-Dark Arena deaths this turn and they both belonged to Vanek's 
Warmasters stable.  Jed Sawyer from War Machine (pay attention or this could get 
confusing) bloodfeud challenged Lavinius of Warmasters.  Back on turn 226, Lavinius 
killed The Zugzugger, so Jed Sawyer wanted to voice his displeasure on the sands.  Jed 
did just that and killed Lavinius in a 1 minute fight.  The other Warmaster death came 
when Vespasian made a bold challenge up 15 points to Tu Du of The Monsantis.  The 
fight lasted a little longer, but the outcome was just as bloody, ending with 
Vespasian's demise.  Condolences to Vanek and his crew.  I am sure the next four turns 
are going to be just as bloody and entertaining.

Lots of movement in the ranks this week.  Search the Sky shot up to the number 1 spot 
with a 2-2-0 turn.  Missing a fight this cycle actually helped them take the top spot!  
Big Lake Outcasts seize 3rd place after a 3-2-0 turn.  Furry Fury also moves into the 
top 5, taking 4th place.  The biggest gains this week belong to The Monsantis and 
Puppet Lords.  The Monsantis jumped an astounding 10 places to take hold of 8th.  But, 
it was the 15 place rise by Puppet Lords that really impressed the crowds!  The 
biggest drops for the cycle belong to Shanghaied and Dragonbane Guild.  Black Hart's 
crew fell out of the Top 5 to 14th place.  Nomad's Dragonbane Guild took the biggest 
plunge going from 6th to 17th.

There is little else to report!  This wraps up this spy report and quite possible my 
career in journalism!  Who knows, Phineas may like it and I can stop being an intern 
and get a paid position!  I am hopeful... or intoxicated, the jury is still out on 
that one.  Come back next turn for more exciting Shadowspire action!
