                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I'm the Duelmaster?  Is this some kind of joke, you know, "trick or treat," and
this is the trick?  To be duelmaster and receive five skills and two ratings all in
one day seems incredible, and I will NOT give them back!  The skills, I mean, because
I'll give up the throne if anybody can make me do it.

                                        Drogoi

P.S.  Good try, Chriseis, and I honestly don't understand how you lost that one.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in TRICORUS a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, TSOMEGH fought 
KHALUHUMS DWARF and gained 20 points and contributed to DARK HORSEMEN's 2-2-0.  
KOLVEGH has lost to WOLVERINE, falling 7 points, while helping make DARK HORSEMEN a 
2-2-0 turn.  And not without some honor, CHRISEIS now claims the title and throne of 
Duelmaster of TRICORUS.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable 
sources that The Blue Dolphin Inn uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  FRUITS has cause to stand tall, as 
they were TRICORUS' most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat. 
And guess who avoided FRUITS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was WENSINWASIN 
M.H..  Anyone surprised?   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or 
hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, TRICORUS, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls. 
Who could ask for more?  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep 
your swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets 
to paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Spider-Man -- I'm sure Chriseis is scouting out every single hiding place within a
league of Tricorus, especially after what you showed on the sands against me. --
Apple

Tsomegh -- I imagine one of my ilk is going to have to face you this turn, but it
certainly doesn't seem right.  Be kind! -- Assur
P.S.  What's with all these nasty Rippers you've got running around?

Convicted Assassins are boring, and they don't teach well. -- Reidi

What is it with these orcs that keep throwing themselves into my arms begging to be
captured?  Are they having a famine down in Orcland? -- Tsomegh

Inannia -- I was hoping to get a standby for my first fight, but you did very well.
Thank you. -- Kolvegh

From the Beyond -- Which will help the arena to decline even further.  Gee, thanks.
