                             Notes from the arena champ.

     "I'm your Ice Cream Man, stop me when I'm passing by....  Oh, my, my..."
     Oh yeah, the view from the top isn't too bad.  Guaranteed to satisfy.
     Atomic Punk may have been the best and first of the Van Duelers to graduate, but
more than one of these songs is aiming for gladiatorial immortality.  And if the free
fights keep coming, that just might happen faster than expected.  But come on out,
Tricorus, and watch your Ice Cream Man deliver.
     I dedicate this one to the ladies.
          Ice Cream Man
               Duelmaster of Tricorus

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, TRICORUS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see CABO WABO win a fight and gain 22 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, CABO WABO beat 
MONTENEGRO and MONTENEGRO lost 18 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety 
is the spice of life, TRICORUS may be getting bland, as ICE CREAM MAN stays top dog 
in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some 
of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  XCOM CHARLIE was the most avoided 
team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in 
this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was VAN DUEL.  Ha ha 
ha ha!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for TRICORUS' 
morgue.  More variety.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate 
catches up with you sooner that later?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see 
the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

One Eye Dark -- That is an odd condition.  Perhaps, a little time at the beach might
help out. -- Cabo Wabo

Garsteil - Sorry, did I distract you?  What can I say, they don't pick names at
random, you know.  Consider yourself lucky. -- Drop Dead Legs

Triskadel -- Sometimes it just isn't worth getting up in the morning.  Last turn was
not one of those days for me. -- Panama

Scribe -- Well, you can't say you weren't warned bout embezzling. -- F.W.

And to balance last turn, we pulled an oh-fer.  No standbys, of course.  I gladly
handed off the title to the Ice Cream Man, his chocolate-mint flavor was delightful. 
Ice cream will soothe many hurts even in the winter.  As for the rest of the fights,
I would leave them for those who fought to talk about 'em, but they don't want to.
Embarrassed, maybe.  Eh. -- Klaralla

                 NEW TEAMS IN THE TEMPORARY TOURNAMENT ARENA (DM 85)

Please note that all new teams created at the Face-to-Face were temporarily placed in 
a temporary Tournament Arena, DM 85.  If you requested that your team be placed in a 
specific arena, it has already transferred to that arena.  Effective immediately, any 
teams placed in DM 85 and not transferred out to another arena, will be automatically 
deleted a month after the tournament.  If you have questions about any of your teams, 
please contact Customer Service. -- RSI
