                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hail and greetings warriors of Tricorus!  'Tis I, you once and future Duelmaster 
regaling you from the high throne.  A hearty salute to Cheetah for a valiant attempt 
at the throne this time.  There is, almost always, next turn.  Who shall be the 
champion next turn, I wonder.  Could it be the recognition leader?  Could it be a 
Cancer?  I only know it will not be I!
     It is with a heavy heart that I must announce my abdication of my position.  
Kulvac blabbered on and on about "Fight Equivalents" and "Political Points" and 
"Squashed like a bug" in AD.  So it was the decision that I shall step down and try to 
gain some experience in April's Grand Tourney before the big move to the next level.  
To all contenders for the position, I wish you good fortune, sharp blades, and clean 
dodges.  Until the next opportunity!

                                          -- A-Peekaboo 

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out TRICORUS to see 
what's new.  Too bad, CANCER, but 9TH TOMBSTONE was just too good to be stopped.  I 
don't wanna hurt anybody's feelings or anything, but CANCER really goofed with their 
0-0-0.  MVP award for 30 GRAND?  9TH TOMBSTONE's proud of him after beating 
MONTENEGRO and getting 30 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  MONTENEGRO's match 
with 30 GRAND cost him a loss of 42 points!  What a putz!  A-PEEKABOO? fights so hard 
to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting and loses the title.  No one said he was a 
genius...  Was that a tear I saw in 30 GRAND's eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  
And wasn't MONTENEGRO fit to be tied!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to 
his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Like, who is this guy???  HOLY DIVER gets 
sent to the Dark Arena, battles PRIEST OF KARN, and returns to tell of it!!!  I bet 
VENTURE BROS. manager is surprised!  D'ya think ENTMANN is feeling guilty for killing 
ALLIES OF RIFF's SLIM JIMMY, a mere boy?  Naah, I doubt it.  Hey you guys, don't you 
think your families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for 
you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte
