                             Notes from the arena champ.

I suppose I should be thankful that most of Raising R'lyeh is absent and preparing
for the fall tourney.  I think half of my losses came from Up From The Sea.  I don't
expect my good fortune to last for too much longer, but I'll enjoy the throne while I
can.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly TRICORUS games.  SHALAITHA caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested DRUNKEN SAILOR and was awarded 
18 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SHALAITHA put 
down DRUNKEN SAILOR, causing him to lose 5 points of recognition in the process.  Not 
for nothing has CARGO in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this 
week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  Informants "close" to the city champion 
have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out! 
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.   
     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?  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till next we 
meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Drunken Sailor --  Totally squiffed, and you still beat me.  Amazing. -- Barochdal

Talk about freakish, the Ambitious Guard, who's taller than I am, bashed me--with a
little war hammer, mind you--on the ANKLE. -- Mahaghal

Nyarlathotep -- Huh, I get impatient.  Probably not a good thing. -- Teresai

I thought burying the Captured Orc in the sand was a tidy solution, but it seems the
arena staff didn't go along with my reasoning. -- Shalaitha

Mordant should keep its Deserters at home.  We don't need them. -- Saarveghal
