                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     What were you THINKING, Carog?  How could you LOSE to me?

                                      Hasarch

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in TRICORUS this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, OLYMPIA fought BARNACLE and 
gained 27 points and contributed to AMAZON ELITE's 4-0-1.  DRUNKEN SAILOR has lost to 
BAROCHDAL, falling 9 points, while helping make SEA DOGS a 1-4-0 turn.  The attempts 
to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and HASARCH remains TRICORUS' top warrior for 
another turn.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their 
losing fighters do dishes at The Blue Dolphin Inn until they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  I also notice that the RAISING 
R'LYEH stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on TRICORUS, what are you 
afraid of?  And avoiding RAISING R'LYEH more than any other team we find AMAZON 
ELITE.  TRICORUS, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, 
sports fans, take notice that DRUNKEN SAILOR from SEA DOGS was TRICORUS' most 
challenged warrior this turn.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  BARNACLE has departed TRICORUS, leaving SEA DOGS without their 
11-7-0 warrior.  Question, just what was his team doing at the taverns last night?  
Congratulations go out to AMAZON ELITE, with RYOKO revenging a bloodfeud against 
SHALAITHA of DARK HORSEMEN.  Is it really true that TRICORUS has more dishwashers per 
capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     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
