                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Oh, wonderful.  M. Chardinee.  The competition here is just remarkable.

                                        Turagh

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of TRICORUS.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  The boys at 
ALL-UGLY TEAM left the arena dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by DARK 
HORSEMEN.  Good show!  CARTOON NETWORK had cause to celebrate, after BUTTERCUP got 21 
points by beating ZALGEI.  SEIJURO certainly had a baffled expression on his face, 
after losing to BLOSSOM and losing 8 points in the process!  The arena was more 
crowded than usual this time, as PIT FIGHTER faced TRICORUS' Duelmaster.  TURAGH 
successfully staved off a grab for the roses by PIT FIGHTER of RONIN.  Does TRICORUS 
have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  So who was the warrior seen charging 
into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     And how sociable are TRICORUS' warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like a horde of 
jackals fleeing from the lion, so did the "warriors" in TRICORUS avoid RONIN.  The 
warriors of RONIN found their efforts at combat frustrated as FRUITS apparently had 
more important things to do than fight.  If challenges were horses, GRANDMASTER could 
open up a fast food joint!  Do my ears deceive me?  FISTS OF FURY (outclassed by 33 
points) challenged DELANGE, in what promises to be a fight.(!) Not to smear a 
reputation, but DARK HORSEMEN must be a little surprised, as DELANGE blew it when 
facing FISTS OF FURY, 33 points below her.  GRAPE challenged GRANDMASTER!  Who says 
FRUITS are just a bunch of wimps!  GRAPE of FRUITS kept his wits as he was subdued by 
GRANDMASTER.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not a 
spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an 
unconscious stupor.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my 
control, I must take my leave of this place.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- 
Novgorodny Vir

Nearly seven years ago myself and my Ronin departed the sands to travel the worlds
and to train our skills.  And now, we have returned.  This is my hello to the
managers of Tricorus...I and my warriors await your best efforts. -- Rosebud, mgr.
Ronin

Sam Cassell -- You wouldn't be so ugly if you'd lose.  Believe me, this would make a
big difference. -- Harzogh

Merton Hanks -- And you're ugly, too.  I think Harzogh is right about the beautifying
effects of losing.  You should try it.  I'll help. -- Zalgei

And the Khalhums Dwarf to finish us off.  Oh, well, it's a paycheck. -- Delange

ATTENTION ALL YOU ALLIANCE-TYPE PEOPLE:
For the purposes of tourney newsletter alliance listings (when I am able to do them),
you may only be listed in ONE alliance.  In other words, you have to choose!  If you
are a part of Englebert's Alliance and Englebert's Alliance is "part" of Ruthrauf's
Alliance, I will list you EITHER as part of Englebert's Alliance OR as part of
Ruthrauf's Alliance, NOT both.  The default would be the top-level alliance,
Ruthrauf's, in this example.  If you'd rather be listed separately, let me know and I
will do so, but that will be the only listing you get. -- The Saint, keeper of ever-
more-complicated lists

29 Jun 2005
The Company of Brothers (TCB) welcomes two new members to our alliance...Liam the
Goth and Buddy Lee.  We have no doubt that they will prove to be assets to our
alliance and the general dueling community. -- Baphomet, co-founder, T.C.B.
