                                      SPY REPORT

Spring readies herself to "spring" upon us in a few short weeks.  The familiar chirp 
of birds returns to Shadowspire.  There is also the lingering odor of gladiator funk 
that follows you gents wherever you go!  To a manager, the odor rises as the sweet 
fragrance of gold and fame.  Well, to the rest of us, the gladiators reek of sweat, 
ale, and a tinge of regret at not choosing a better career path.  However, where could 
we find such excitement as we do in the arena?  Speaking of the arena, let's get to 
Shadowspire's turn 239!

Gibson bids us farewell, leaving for bigger, brighter, and immortal things on the Isle 
of the Eye.  Wicked Martyrs did not sit idly by and wait for opportunity to fall in 
their lap once again, but tried valiantly to retake throne.  Bailey posted a challenge 
to OMFUG of Some Kinda Hate, attempting to back into the throne via recognition 
points.  Unfortunately for Bailey, OMFUG appeared prepared for the bout and not only 
won the challenge, but took over as Shadowspire's new Duelmaster.  Congrats to OMFUG, 
who is managed by Mordraith.  We also want to congratulate OMFUG, who received an 
invitation to the Isle.  So, the throne goes up for grabs once again next turn!

Big Lake Outcasts stood as the most avoided team with Primal Instinct avoiding them 
the most.  This is no surprise considering the amount of jawing taking place in the 
personal ads.  Krow from Cult of Bacchus was the most challenged warrior.  
Inebriation's warrior Wyld Turkey got the go-ahead challenge against Krow, but came up 
short in a 1 minute fight.  Ill Wind posted a 25 point down challenge to The Paperboy.  
I was shocked when Ill Wind lost the fight!  Is there some bad blood between Nomad and 
Hombre that I missed?  Bailey went down 10 to challenge OMFUG, but when you are ranked 
at the top with only a teammate above you, what else is left?

Deaths were moderate for the turn.  The usual rounds in the Dark Arena occurred. 
Surprising everyone, Regiomontanus of Darque Ages returned from the Dark Arena after 
slaying Shewish Giant.  Word on the street says Regio desires a few words with Master 
Darque.  The most veteran warrior to die outside of the Dark Arena was Feta Compli of 
Otto's Diner.  Eat-Sleep-Repeat will perhaps receive a menu special next turn from the 
Diner.  Overall, not a bloody turn, but the impact of a single death on a squad can be 
overwhelming, so we do not wish to underplay its importance with such a statement.  
And let's be honest, it can also bring a sigh of relief if the warrior has become an 
insufferable pain in the posterior!

The bloodfeuds were certainly interesting next turn.  Darque Ages finished their feud 
against Jed Sawyer and War Machine with a victory.  Sailor Jeffry also completed their 
fourth turn of blood feud against Hakeem and NBA Legends with a win.  The other two 
feuds were anything but ordinary.  Two-Finger Tony of Shanghaied was killed by Byruho. 
Two-Finger Tony becomes the 2nd warrior from the Shanghaied stable to fall before 
Byruho.  Perhaps Black Hart would do well to recruit fighters with all their digits 
and teeth in the future.  The other bloodfeud saw Den's Big Lake Outcasts sending 
Hateful Desire to blood feud Beast Within of Primal Instinct.  On paper, this one 
appeared to be lopsided in Hateful Desire's favor.  After all, a 13-6-1 record against 
a 2-2-1 warrior seems like a no-brainer.  Beast Within shows he is not a warrior to be 
trifled with on the sands.  He defeated Hateful Desire and catapulted to the top 
Basher in the arena.  Last turn, I failed to mention that Beast Within overcame 
another mismatch when he bested Ryk the Dragon.

Furry Fury falls out of the top spot and Monster Manual takes their place.  Darque 
Ages jumped 7 spots into 3rd on the strength of a 4-1-1 turn.  They are the only new 
team in the top 5, replacing Wicked Martyrs, who fell to 6th with a 2-3 effort this 
turn.  The biggest gain belongs to Pray the Gods, apparently there is something to be 
said for piety.  They rose 11 places to 10th.  There were no massive drops this turn.  
As mentioned before, Wicked Martyrs fell 4 spots. Despite taking the throne, Some 
Kinda Hate posted a 3-1, but fell 3 spots.  Is this related to running less than a 
full squad, as Den mentions in the personal ads?

Goodbye to the graduates that left us this turn (Dry Mouth Max and Gibson), and 
congratulations to the warriors who received their invitations to the Isle (OMFUG, 
Shamino, and Naga).  May your future be bright and filled with glory for yourself, 
your manager, and for Shadowspire.  I must be going.  These flower bulbs are not going 
to plant themselves.  Until next time, warriors!

Den -- You are confusing with in the rules with honor.  They are two 
distinct differences.  Honor comes from respect, which you have none. -- Manager of 
Primal Instinct

Den -- There is no law or rule that a man should allow women and children to exit a 
sinking ship first but it is the honorable thing to do. -- Manager of Primal Instinct

Den -- A spouse is not required to treat their spouse with respect but it is the 
honorable thing to do. -- Manager of Primal Instinct

Den -- Honor is a badge that is given to those that earn it not to those that claim it 
is their birth right and no matter how they act expect to still be viewed upon as 
honorable. -- Manager of Primal Instinct

Den -- A knight who acts without honor is without honor regardless of the title he 
holds or the costume he wears.  If he wears the veil of honor falsely then that it all 
it is, a costume, not his uniform, not a badge of honor but of disgrace. -- Manager of 
Primal Instinct

Den -- Yes, you have the right to BF as you see fit.  You are perfectly with in the 
allowable rules of the game.  You, however, have fallen short of honor by about 2 
galaxies. -- Manager of Primal Instinct

Den -- I thoroughly enjoyed beating up on your 12-14-0 SL with 78 recognition points 
with my 1-2-1 BA with 6 recognition points, and then to top it off you challenge a 
second warrior of mine and lose again.  Money well spent. -- Manager Primal Instince

Rabid Pain -- That was pleasant -- Hunter

Ryk The Dragon -- You looked like a rookie that should be DAed. -- Beast Within

Plug-In Car -- I have 1 more "-" than you, that must have been your down fall.  Maybe 
in the name-change-o-rama you can change your name to Plug-in-car and it might make 
you better. -- EAT-SLEEP-REPEAT

Rahksahnah -- I don't think I like you. -- Fight or Flight

Void Breaker -- Nice challenge, congrats on the kill. -- Predator turned prey

Void Breaker -- All this talk and I forgot to BF...  Next turn, my friend. -- Manager 
of Primal Instinct

Pho C -- I won't lie to you.  It felt good to watch you drop on the sand and wonder if 
I'd skewer you.  But alas, I usually only carry shields. -- Eclipse

Primal Instinct -- That death was more of a surprise for us than for you.  I'd wager.  
We await your bloodfeud. -- Kid Arcane

Mokosh -- Another one?  I'll pick you apart easily in just a few more turns; you'll 
see. -- Syzygy

Chuckie Egg -- Honestly, it was D. Crescents's fault.  He thought he was too good to 
bother with tactics.  Now he knows better! -- Arcane

Schendle -- We'll bloodfeud, of course.  But I'd rather ambush the incompetent fools 
who run the Ambulance and Emergency Rescue teams.  "Died on the way...?!"  Anyway, no 
hard feeling here. -- Arcane

Bailey -- I avoided you.  I avoided you twice.  I posted a bloodfeud challenge to 
avoid you.  But, my orders did not make it in on time. -- The Empress Wu

Jed Sawyer -- Boy, is your face red.  I'm not exactly sure whose orders I was given, 
but they worked well enough to stop you. -- Tomoe Gozen

Two-Ton Timmons -- I can't wait until you get into range of Barbarossa and Tomoe.  Up 
or down. -- Regiomontanus, off to the DA

Al Roper -- Good challenge.  I was avoiding you too, but I suffered from the same 
problem as Wu and had no fresh orders. -- Thomas Becket, off to the DA

Dry Mouth Max -- Impressive!  Congrats on immortality! -- Barbarossa

Congratulations Shadowspire!  It took 103 turns and a collaborative managerial effort, 
but you finally gave the Cult an 0-5 turn!  Here's to a new streak! -- DeGotti

Havana Black -- You went out a Victor!  Congrats to you! -- Baby Crambus

Snod -- You certainly had the upper hand in that fight! -- Warwulf

Shanghaied -- Prepare for what? We've been through all of this before. -- The 
Mongoloids II

Den -- Sorry to disappoint you. We will be sticking around for a few more turns. 
SOMEBODY had a warrior go and die at the end of one our fights.  Now I have to stick 
around for the bloodfeuds. -- Otis
P.S.  You know you will miss me, big guy.

Hombre -- Holy crap!  You finally beat one of my warriors.  Hell must be freezing 
over. -- Den

Primal Extinct -- Before you get all excited and make a mess over last turn's 
bloodfeud, you only squeaked out the victory because there was a massive error at the 
Gladiatorial Commission with how the strategy should have worked.  Even a warrior 
managed by you could win with that strange strategy.  Rest assured you smelly pile of 
filth, there is no way in any world that a Beast could beat a Dragon.  Simply cannot 
happen, dullard.  So, continue with your pathetic little squealing and with a little 
luck, my Hateful Desire has killed your guy as you read this, or have it read to you, 
whichever works. -- Den, I'm the reason the boogey man checks under his bed

DeGotti -- Hey guess what, cat fondler?  You had just as many wins last turn as 
Scorpio, which is zero!  Seeing that put a little skip in my step today, I even left a 
tip at Otto's. -- Den

Darque Master of all Things Simple -- Nice 1-4 last turn, who you trying to impress? 
-- Den

Lady Mordraith -- You do know the rules of the arena state that you must fight a full 
team, right? -- Den

Otis -- I am certain you have heard that old saying, "you are just one jellybean away 
from death".  That phrase became popular because I know a lot of unsavory people that 
would maim a man for a jellybean, and I get mad at people a lot, and I have a lot of 
jellybeans. -- Den
