                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly TRICORUS games.  HARZOGH caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested FRATSFA SLAVE and was awarded 6 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, DANGEROUS CRIMINAL 
put down DELANGE, causing her to lose 12 points of recognition in the process.  
Although SPIDER-MAN made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious APPLE.  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!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat 
in TRICORUS these days is FRUITS.  At least, most blades in town are looking to avoid 
them.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the 
better part of last week avoiding FRUITS.  Indeed it was WENSINWASIN M.H..   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till next we 
meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Late stuff, should've been done for last time--

Manny Lehman -- Are you laughing at me?  (pause to read the second minute) No, by
Shierah, you lost!  Incredible but true.  Rotten luck for you, but good for me.
Although a skill apiece isn't much to write home about....  Of course, nobody at home
can read, so it doesn't really matter, does it? -- Kolvegh

Carlo -- I don't have TIME for this stuff today.  Or whatever day it was that the
fight in question happened. -- Delange

Reality -- I don't care how many times you want to beat me up, I will NOT make you
part of my day-to-day life.  Absolutely not! -- Harzogh

You'd think the city fathers would do something about all the beggars around,

wouldn't you?  Trouble is, Tricorus doesn't have any city fathers.  It's an orphan.
I'd use the b- word, which would explain its nature and lack of fathers even more
clearly, but don't want to provoke Ed. -- Turagh

     You're all heart. -- Ed., unprovoked

Current personals--

Huh, Dangerous Criminals.  That's Tricorus, all right.  A hotbed, or, depending on
the season, a coldbed of criminals, some of them dangerous. -- Kolvegh

Captured Orc.  Whoopy-do. -- Delange
P.S.  Okay, so I'm bored.  Or actually, more like kinda pissed.  I wanted to bring
the Orc home to the guildhouse, and my teammates wouldn't let me.

I don't see why the Userous Merchant has to fight in the arena.  If Tricorus is a
hotbed of criminals and all, should it be an HONEST merchant that has to fight in the
arena?  Because of going broke.  Bad merchants drive out good ones. -- Turagh

And good gladiators (relatively speaking, so don't laugh!) drive out standbys, which
is what the standbys are for. -- Harzogh
