Well good luck to the next DM.  It's been fun.  13-5-7-21-17-9-13 with low, moderate,
and a small shield... Ahh well, see you in ADM.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of TRICORUS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  NYARLATHOTEP caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested TERESAI and was awarded 12 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, NYARLATHOTEP put 
down TERESAI, causing her to lose 11 points of recognition in the process.  Although 
CARGO made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious 
TELENIA.  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he never fights 
without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city TRICORUS.  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.  If 
you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of RAISING 
R'LYEH last week.  Busy avoiding DARK HORSEMEN?   
     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!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in TRICORUS.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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

     There has been a run lately of personals and columns turning up in the wrong
     arenas.  When you email in something, check and make sure you have the correct
     arena number!  It's easy for a finger to slip onto the wrong key.  When the
     receipt comes back, check again to be sure it went where you intended!
     Vigilance is your friend, and mine too. -- the Editor
