                             Notes from the arena champ.

     That was quicker than I expected, Phaedra.  I know Cargo can be uneven, but I
figured that to defeat him, you had to be tough.  Or... is this a plot to get rid of
me?  Shierah knows I feel unfit to graduate.

                                      Hasarch

P.S.  LARGE SHIELD?  No way!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly TRICORUS games.  TELENIA caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested PRESS GANG GUY and was awarded 20 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, TELENIA put down 
PRESS GANG GUY, causing him to lose 17 points of recognition in the process.  As is 
fitting, the most sought after warrior on the challenge boards this week was none 
other than Duelmaster HASARCH himself.  Who here was not present for the title fight 
this week as UP FROM THE SEA boldly challenged HASARCH in order to strive for the 
Duelmasters honors?  The city has turned out in honor of UP FROM THE SEA, for with 
hers arena victory she may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  
Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he never fights without 
pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In TRICORUS "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  TRICORUS, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the 
names of thy guilds is DARK HORSEMEN, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the 
weekly duels.  Apparently the stalwarts of RAISING R'LYEH are catching the bulk of 
jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  I can not 
but mention with disdain the name of NYARLATHOTEP who this week posted a challenge to 
a warrior a full 8 points below in the rankings.  I thought NYARLATHOTEP showed great 
skill and promise when she defeated BAROCHDAL.  All right, so I slept through it!  
Big deal!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the 
miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  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.--

Shoggoth -- It's the white face paint, black lips, and all those piercing, some in
places I can barely believe even when I see them, that got to me. -- Barochdal

Of Sea and Wind -- Yes?  What is?  Are you going to tell me about some epic battle
with a fish? -- Teresai
