                             Notes from the arena champ.

I'll keep this short.  It's nice being here.  I won't ge here long, I imagine.  Fight
well, fight hard. -- Telenia

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for TRICORUS.  MVP award for HEMI?  OMINOUS 
REIGN's proud of her after beating EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and getting 15 points.  Talk 
about yer major upsets!  TERESAI's match with WO TIGER cost her a loss of 10 points!  
The Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause she's Number One!  DRUNKEN SAILOR knows 
this.  He was Bloodfeuded by the Duelmaster.  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being 
unfair?  I think TELENIA should let DRUNKEN SAILOR be Duelmaster for a while, without 
fighting about it.  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  
Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  The warriors of SEA DOGS must be 
getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I 
don't?  Is there some deep dark secret why RAISING R'LYEH's been avoiding SEA DOGS so 
much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Like, is CARGO popular, or what?  He 
was challenged the most in all of TRICORUS!  He's got a 14-16-0, is that good?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  I hear SEA DOGS sent PRESS GANG GUY to the Dark Arena.  What, is that 
like not well-lit, or what?  Hey, warriors get killed by other warriors, not by their 
manager sending them to the Dark Arena.  What's wrong with PRESS GANG GUY's 10-5-2, 
SEA DOGS?  Like was that some Bloodfeud, or what?  (TELENIA vs. DRUNKEN SAILOR, that 
is.) What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, that's 
what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  TRICORUS is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte
