                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It is a disgrace to the dueling community in Tricorus, what there is of it, that
I should hold this title by defeating a standby.

                                        Reidi

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of TRICORUS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  TSOMEGH caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested VETERAN MERCENARY and was awarded 
16 points in recognition.  Although CONVICTED ASSASSIN made a valiant effort, it did 
not suffice to topple the reign of victorious REIDI.  Would you believe that over 
half of the old women in TRICORUS seem to feel that they could fight better than you 
gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In TRICORUS "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena 
there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in TRICORUS as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is 
mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

An Announcement Concerning the Brotherhood of the Blade Alliance:
     I have chosen to withdraw my membership from the Brotherhood of the Blade
alliance.  The years I have spent in the alliance have been the best of my DM career.
I leave the alliance with many great friends and will always remain close to my
former brethren.
     The Brotherhood of the Blade will not skip a beat without my membership.  It
remains in very capable hands and its roster is among the strongest in the game.
With the return on some of its founding members to DM, I know the BOB will continue
to grow in strength and prestige in the years to come. -- The Sandman
