                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt TRICORUS will ever be the same.  And let's see, TERESAI fought CONVICTED 
ASSASSIN and gained 15 points and contributed to DARK HORSEMEN's 4-1-0.  GOB has lost 
to KUNG FU MASTER, falling 22 points, while helping make SEA DOGS a 1-3-0 turn.  And 
not without some honor, SHALAITHA now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of 
TRICORUS.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that 
The Silver Chalice uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  We'd like to remind certain teams 
not to rob the graves of their enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered 
rude.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in TRICORUS again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Drunken Sailor -- Probably not a good idea to go signing contracts in your condition.
-- Shalaitha

A Dangerous Criminal, you say?  I'm not so sure. -- Barochdal

The Userous Merchant should just go ahead and admit he sells stolen goods. -- Teresai

As Cult Members go, this one's pathetic. -- Mahaghal

The Beggar, too, but then, if he was good at what he wanted to do other than
gladiate, he wouldn't BE gladiating. -- Saarveghal
