                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, Pit Fighter, it was a bold attempt, but malevolence and surety aren't
enough.  Nicking my ankle isn't enough.  Still, you're alive, you're young, you may
yet get it right.

                                        Turagh

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out TRICORUS to see 
what's new.  MVP award for HARZOGH?  DARK HORSEMEN's proud of him after beating PIT 
FIGHTER and getting 13 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  PIT FIGHTER's match 
with HARZOGH cost him a loss of 8 points!  Was that a tear I saw in FISTS OF FURY's 
eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't TURAGH fit to be tied!  Who was the 
wiseguy that said TRICORUS' Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Blue Dolphin Inn? 
Don't look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you? 
Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Fists of Fury -- Hmm, it looks as though, if nobody else activates, we'll fight again
next time, i.e., right now, and you'll probably take the title.  Good luck to you. --
Delange

The Venomous Concubine isn't bad if you're really firm with her from the beginning.
-- Harzogh

Buttercup -- It must be hard having what many gladiators regard as a "sissy" name.
You carry it off well. -- Zalgei
P.S.  Just remember, kills are not necessary to be perceived as tough.
