                             Notes from the arena champ.

Ahhhhhh.... The wind howls and the dead walk...

A fitting return I would say...
Carnage everywhere...

Hasarach you should have brought 2 of those large shields.  Enjoy your immortality...
Shadow & Color may have to look you up at some point...

Still amazing the spectators...

Up From The Sea

A coast-line of mingled mud, ooze, and weedy Cyclopean masonry which can be nothing
less the tangible substance of earth's supreme terror--the nightmare corpse-city of
R'lyeh.

That is not dead which can eternal lie,
And with strange aeons even death may die.

                                      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 AMAZON 
ELITE left the arena dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by RAISING 
R'LYEH.  Good show!  Practice pays for TELENIA, who pummelled CARGO, to pocket 16 
points.  WO TIGER certainly had a baffled expression on hers face, after losing to 
SHALAITHA and losing 9 points in the process!  UP FROM THE SEA found out being 
TRICORUS' Duelmaster isn't all nuts and berries, receiving 2 challenges!  You could 
cut the tension with a scimitar as PHAEDRA of AMAZON ELITE met the Duelmaster.  Those 
who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by PHAEDRA, of AMAZON ELITE, who 
despite a 16-12-1 couldn't overcome TRICORUS' Number 1.  Word has it one team in 
TRICORUS is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet 
it works.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in DARK 
HORSEMEN are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  The 
warriors of DARK HORSEMEN found their efforts at combat frustrated as AMAZON ELITE 
apparently had more important things to do than fight.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  I hear VICKIE of 
OMINOUS REIGN tired of the battles and was thinking of becoming a priest.  DRUNKEN 
SAILOR of SEA DOGS saved him the effort of getting references.  Ask not a spymaster 
for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious 
stupor.   
     All good things must come to an end.  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant 
prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  TRICORUS, I leave 
you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Blue Dolphin Inn.  'Til 
next time-- Novgorodny Vir
