                             Notes from the arena champ.

Greetings one and all!

First off, I'd like to thank two people, JE for not fighting last cycle and allowing 
me to ascend to the throne and Hakuna Frittata for graciously bowing his head to me in 
our battle when he knew I was the better warrior!

It's been too long since one of the Cult has been able to capture the DM Title and let 
me tell you this throne room is a mess! It looks like squatters took up refuge in 
here! While setting up for my stay here, I came across a list of questions left from a 
previous holder of the throne room, my guess it was from one of the AA members because 
the questions were totally obscure. I went ahead and answered them anyway;

1. What's the most money you've ever drunkenly spent at Otto's Diner? -- That place 
isn't very expensive, so not much. 
2. Can you fit your whole fist in your mouth? -- I've never tried!
3. Do you agree that Vanek is a huge a-hole and probably the most annoying manager in 
Shadowspire? -- Yes and no.
4. Do you think Zac Efron is really nice in real life or does he just walk around with 
his abs out telling people to go fetch him vegetables? -- I'm not sure who Zac Efron 
is!
5. On a scale of 1 to 10, how intolerable do you find Grimm, Hombre and DeGotti? -- 
Well, that's not very nice, now is it? 5, 4 and 5!

There are more questions that I will be sure to share with you all after next turn!

Until then, adios!

Gnometradamus

                                      SPY REPORT

I have finally returned from the tournament.  It was a wonderful event to behold.  
There is something about walking corpses fighting to the undeath that appeals to me.  
I won't spoil anything for those that are still in the dark as to how events unfolded.  
But, congrats to the winners and condolences to everyone else.  

Some of you will be happy to know that I did not fire Intern Abe.  He is my sister's 
kid, so for the sake of family harmony, I have kept him employed.  I did move him to 
the mailroom and threaten a demotion to outhouse duty if he doesn't mind his P's and 
Q's for a while.  I did fire the good-for-nothing assistant of mine that allowed him 
to publish his reports.  Well, enough small talk!  Let us get down to the important 
business, which is Shadowspire's 231st turn!  

Astri reached for the stars this week, challenging our reigning Duelmaster 
Gnometradamus.  From all reports, it was a back and forth struggle that ended with 
Gnometradamus coming out on top.  He was well rewarded for his efforts and shortly 
after the fight received an invitation to the Isle of the Eye to join the immortal 
Lord Protectors.  Congrats to DeGotti, who manages Cult of Bacchus, and our current 
Duelmaster, Gnometradamus.  The throne will be opened for a new champion next turn, 
but who will step forward and take it?  There are a number of worthy Challenger 
Champions that could make next cycle's title match a must-see bout!  

Big Lake Outcasts were the most avoided team this turn.  Big shock!  Doom Brigade 
avoided them the most.  The lesson is clear, dear readers, down challenge enough and 
people will remember your team's name and number when they issue avoids to the 
Commission.  In news that is becoming too passe to report, Big Lake Outcasts down 
challenged by 26 points and Inebriation dipped down by 18.  Scorpio Likes: was the 
unfortunate recipient of both down challenges.  Is there some bad blood between the AA 
and Scorpio?  I know I would love to hear the story, and I'm sure the other readers 
would as well.  

It was not a particularly deadly turn numerically speaking, but there were a few 
veterans that passed worthy of noting.  Stump of Errata fought his last this turn, 
moving on to the afterlife with a 14-18 record.  Despite a losing record, 32 FE is 
quite an investment to make in a fighter and see him die upon the sands.  I hope JE 
had life insurance policy on Stump.  The next experienced fighter to move on from this 
mortal coil was Apshai of The Commodores.  Dry Mouth Max from Furry Fury unleashed the 
fatal blow upon Apshai, ending his life and dueling career at 8-11.  Also of note this 
cycle, Dragonbane Guild and La Pentarchie allowed blood feuds to slip by without 
exacting revenge on the killers.  I must ask Nomad and Le Pentarque if this is a new 
dueling approach or merely a matter of circumstances in the arena?  

I have already congratulated Gnometradamus on attaining immortality, but I also want 
to extend a hearty hurrah to Rummer from Pray the Gods.  He will also be making the 
trek to the Isle of the Eye after next turn.  Also deserving recognition this turn are 
The Monsantis and Wicked Martyrs.  They moved into the top 5 this turn.  To Doom 
Brigade and Bone Munchers we give the loudest shout to for making giant leaps in the 
rankings.  Doom Brigade moved up 10 spots from 18th to 8th.  Bone Munchers also moved 
10 places, going from 21st to 11th.  The biggest tumbles this turn belonged to Some 
Kinda Hate and Search the Sky.  Some Kinda Hate had the biggest fall, dropping 13 
spots.  However, Search the Sky might have had the most painful fall as they dropped 
out of the number 1 spot to 12th.

I have to bring this all to a close now.  It is good to be back at my desk working 
diligently, but it will be better to sleep in my own bed tonight.  I hope to see each 
of you next turn, and I pray for a few new faces too.  Good fortune to each of you on 
turn 232!

                    *** NOTE from the Gladiatorial Commission ***
Several warriors were entered into the Grand Tournament from no-tourney arenas.  
Please remember that each manager signed a pledge upon entering the no-tourney arenas, 
stating "I pledge that I will not send warriors from this team to a tournament, nor 
will I use a tournament prize on a warrior from this team" and "I understand that any 
warrior that participates in a tournament or receives a tournament prize shall be sent 
to the Dark Arena until they are dead."  The Gladiatorial Commission assumes that 
these entries were in error and has refused those warriors entry into the tournament.  
However, an exception was made for warriors entered into Dead Tournaments, but it 
shall be understood that if a no-tournament warrior earns resurrection, that team must 
move to a regular arena or, as stated in the Pledge, that warrior must be sent to the 
Dark Arena until they are dead.  Please direct any questions to Customer Service.

All -- Our apologies for missing the past two turns.  We are back and ready to pick up 
where we left off. -- NBA Legends

Pray the Gods -- Extra apologies to you for Hakeem missing his date with destiny.

Lishchka -- An entire DM column for little old me.  I feel so honored.  I would very 
much have liked to have been a 3-0-3 Duelmaster. -- Hakeem

One-Eyed Clyde -- I see that I'm a little late to acknowledge my biggest fan. -- 
Hakeem

White Lightning -- ... I see. -- Pheare

Old Mill -- See there, that was an appropriate challenge. -- Fenn

Britney's Pears -- There you go making me bring out the long spear again, oops... -- 
Vilbradr

Beefjerky -- Oh my, that was embarrassing. -- Penumbra

Shanghaied -- That was an excellent DM column!  Always fun to read your stuff. :) -- 
Keyoke, mgr Doom Brigade

Shamino -- Those old tricks won't work any more.  You should be ashamed of yourself 
for trying! -- Monoceros

Barbarossa -- Last time we met I cleaned your clock.  Why would you want to do that 
again? -- Astri

Zathog -- Considering the difference in our experience levels, I would've thought you 
might have taught me more skills or at least put up a better fight.  Retire already! 
-- Armageddon

Cerebral Vortex -- That war hammer tings!  But, I have a new strategy I want to try 
with you, hopefully soon. -- Quark

Scorpio -- Welcome to Shadowspire, and don't let yourself get demoralized too soon.  
Den isn't really the chairman for our Shadowspire Welcoming Committee, but he likes to 
pretend he is and hey, 'he who brings the snacks....' -- Kid Arcane

All -- By the by, whatever does 'AA' stand for?  Amoroust Aardvarks?  Alcoholic 
Armadillos?  Advocates for the Amish?  Anal and Aggressive?  Alms for the Afflicted?  
Angry Adolescents?  Acoustic Accompaniment?  Abacus Adherents?  Alpaca Apparel?  
Amateur Actors?  Ambivalent Archeologists?  Animosity Always?  (I have more...)  Just 
wondering. -- Kid Arcane

Dicky Tourville -- REALLY?  You've challenged me a lot over my career.  Didn't you 
learn your lesson last time? -- Monoceros

Ryk the Dragon -- Just testing the waters, Lizard Breath.  Don't get excited. -- 
Armageddon

Naga -- Cute trick, bribing some kid in the arena to wipe my blade's handle with lard!  
Next time, try relying on just your skills. -- Astri

Lady Buck -- More 'Lady' than Laddy, don't you think?  Gotta be ale to take a few 
hits, son.  Man up! -- Quark

Gnometradamus -- That name doesn't work well with the title of "Duelmaster."  Let's 
see if we can remedy that. -- Monoceros & Astri

Vanek -- Why is a union loving liberal like you quoting a champion Republican pres?  
While we're on the subject of President Lincoln, take note that his wardrobe is more 
up to date than yours.  Do you plan on running a full team now?  The rest of us signed 
a pledge stating that we would, I guess special people get special favors, coward. -- 
Crambus
P.S.  How are you going to handle the BF when you don't have anyone out-ranking my 
killer by 80+ pts?  Coward.

Intern Abe -- Do you think Den is the only manager who has successfully placed a DC 
here?  You should spend less time daydreaming about your Richard Simmons posters and 
take more notice of the rest of your buddies' antics here, snapperhead. -- Crambus

Lady Mordraith -- Vanek thinks you look great in that skirt. -- Crambus

Vanek -- I don't care if it was only 2 FE warriors, this time!  It speaks volumes that 
you have a 2 FE warrior and you look down the rankings to issue a challenge! -- 
DeGotti!

Welcome to Shadowspire, Warm & Fuzzy!

No-Teeth Keith -- Not the way you drew it up, now was it? -- Hollowsoul

Mind Flayer -- Hopefully those tentacles I removed from your face will grow back in 
time! -- Krow
