                                      SPY REPORT

Here we are again in The Spire!  It is good to see most of you back on the sand today.  
Well, it is always good to see the warriors on the sand, but the ugly mugs in the 
managers' boxes make me question my job.  Anyway, I guess it is good to see you all 
the same because that means that it is arena day, and we got to watch some fights!  
Always a good time to be had in the arena!  Let's see all that went down in The Spire 
today.

Snake Eyes has cause to stand proud as he came into this turn as our Duelmaster.  
Taking over the reins last turn, our quiet champion had the opportunity to show 
everyone that his title was more than a fluke. Sailsa made a play for the Duelmaster's 
chair but was quickly dismissed by Snake Eyes.  Congrats to him and his manager, 
Master Beru!  Adding to the celebration, Snake Eyes also received a letter from the 
Commission and an invitation to the Isle of the Eye.  With the doubly good news, 
hopefully, our champion is buying doubles for everyone at Otto's tonight!

The most avoided team is the newly reactivated Inebriation.  Philthy's crew was mostly 
avoided by Toilet Paper.  I know there is a joke in there somewhere, but it is 
escaping me at the moment.  The most challenged warrior, less popularly known as 
"Everyone's Favorite Target," is no one.  There were a total of 16 challenges issued, 
but no warrior was challenged more than once.  It is good to see the arena active with 
challenges.  However, it makes for a bad news day when one particular warrior is not 
attracting the ire of his colleagues!

The good, the bad, and the ugly is an apt description for The Spire. The good for this 
turn is we celebrate our first team to 1000 wins. Darque Ages becomes Shadowspire's 
first 1k-win team.  From the looks of the rankings, Cult of Bacchus is fast 
approaching the milestone. Now to the bad!  We had 4 deaths today, and none of them 
were in the Dark Arena.  NBA Legends and Thirsty Thugs felt the sting of death the 
most by losing experienced arena warriors.  I'm confident Big Lake Solution and 
Literate Loons didn't feel great about their losses either, but losing a 2-3 fight 
hits a bit lighter than losing a 37-fight warrior or 15-fight warrior with 2 previous 
kills. Condolences to the dead, and good luck to the feuders if they choose that route 
next cycle.

Alright, it is time for me to get out of here.  I want to close with a second congrats 
to Stormclaw of Dragonbane Guild.  He also received an invitation to the Isle along 
with our Duelmaster.  The Spire's top will certainly be more open next time with these 
two leaving us for greener pastures or whatever is on the Isle.  It could be greener 
water; I'm not sure.  Whatever!  We will be seeing you two, and we will crown a new 
Duelmaster in a few weeks.  Come back and see who the lucky bum is that takes over as 
our champion.

999 wins is an impressive total.  Are the Darque Ages about to cross the
1,000 win threshold?  No pressure.     The Cult is only 38 wins behind 
you.  Congratulations to a worthy competitor!  - Nomad and the Dragonbane 
Guild

Snake Eyes - Not only do you have your very own personal mouthpiece but 
you have some pretty good skills also.  I would ahve liked to ahve held 
onto that throne for another turn.  Maybe next time.  - Stormclaw

Well, call me confused and slap my fanny, but Snake Eyes wants me to 
handle this. Apparently he has a Duelmaster Column to write or some such. 
The guy barely strings three words together at a time most times, but 
apparently being the Duelmaster makes him loquacious!
 He wanted me to mention he is challenging Ahna Misstep, due to her 
recognition. However, he suspects she will continue to be tied up with the 
Far Travelers and that Lucruzia... situation. The boss told us to prepare 
for a new rookie because he is confident
 that Snake Eyes will be getting an invitation next turn to go to the 
Isle. We'll see. As for the rest of us, York and I feel pretty good about 
packing up for the Isle before the end of the summer. If Big Brother gets 
out of that pint glass, perhaps he makes
 the move around then also. At that rate, who knows, the Fridge may be 
starting so say goodbye as well. Guess we will see.  Wonder Woman, for 
Childhood Heroes</div>

Jacob Grimm -- That makes it 3-0 in my favor. I hope we both get our 
invites soon. -- Gayne the Forthright

Dominique -- The weapon smith quality has been severely lacking of late. 
Yeah, it is my lucky day. Thanks for the training boost. -- Bavil the 
Advantageous

Agave -- Yeah the infirmary here is terrible. Thanks for the training 
though. -- Meade the Unambiguous

Rodger Neffer -- Yanno, just a few letters different and you could have 
been named Rogor Reffer and you would be a palindrome. What can I say I 
noticed trivial things like that. Thanks for the training, I hope it 
helps. -- Ahrog the Eccentric

PTOMaine -- Thanks for the practice and workout, unfortunately it didn't 
help with my training. Ohh well I survived my first fight. -- Kohlbee the 
Satisfied

Toilet Paper - Do you ever feel "used"? - Den

Darque - Did your alarm clock not go off? Thus forcing most of your team to
fight at night? - Den

Childhood Heros - My favorite childhood hero was the guy that lived on the
corner by the school. He was home every day, wearing a wife-beater shirt and
smoking cheap cigarettes, while chugging beer that you could only purchase
in a 30 pack. He would scream drunken obscenities at the kids and throw
stuff. I always wanted to be that guy. I hope he shows up on your team so we
can reminisce about the good ole days. - Den

Pterosaur -- Well now, that was poor form taking the day off like that with
no warning. Our day three challenger was left standing alone on the arena
floor! They had to send out a convicted thief to take your place. And now The
Church is stuck with twenty cases of commemorative beer steins that
didn't sell. Poor form indeed. Good day, sir. -- Big P and The Church

Dainty Leaf -- Very nice, I apologize for wasting your time, ma'am. I'm going to nurse
these wounds and count myself lucky on the skills learned. -- Fingerless
Friar

Kayd -- Your advice of lifting with my legs and not my back was brilliant. I feel
like I could carry so much more.... stuff! -- Cardinal Sinner
