                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Listen, Up from the Sea, if you're not going to hang in here and be responsible
for not-writing a duelmaster's column, why not go BACK to the sea?  Do I look like
someone with "words of wisdom and inspiration" to write here?  Of course not.  I'm
just a guy who was lucky enough to escape your murderous teammate.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly TRICORUS games.  Former top team SEA DOGS was unseated 
this week as DARK HORSEMEN moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot with a 
4-1-0 record for the round.  BAROCHDAL caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested DRUNKEN SAILOR and was awarded 13 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, BAROCHDAL put down DRUNKEN 
SAILOR, causing him to lose 11 points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing 
has GARANH in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's 
proven his combat skill yet again.  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!   
     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!   
     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 we meet again, remember:  a turtle 
walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- 
Zontani Sharp Eyes

Nyarlathotep -- You're female this time around?  Intriguing.  I suppose we'll be

seeing you around. -- Hasarch
P.S.  Odd that we haven't matched against you before.  It isn't like this is a huge,
busy arena.

Shoggoth -- Even the hint that you might sling a tentacle my way freaks me out.  I've
got a thing against tentacles, and while I don't see one on you at the moment, I've
got a grue over it. -- Barochdal

Cargo -- Your shipping rates are outrageous. -- Vargoi

Drunken Sailor -- Not drunk enough, apparently.  We'll have to see what we can do. --
Karranvai

Coloroutofspace -- We note that the arenamaster killed you, and we laugh. -- the Dark
