                             Notes from the arena champ.

Ahhhhh.....

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

The boss has finally relented and let me return to Tricorus.  It has been a while
since we have held the throne.  Hopefully there will be some good replacements to
pick up the torch.  See you in 100.

     Up From The Sea

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, TRICORUS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, RAISING R'LYEH, since DARK 
HORSEMEN took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see SAARVEGHAL win a fight and gain 17 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, GOB beat TERESAI and TERESAI lost 8 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Due 
to absence, and inability to defend the throne, UP FROM THE SEA has lost the Title of 
Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with 
the new, as GOB takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  
Heh, heh.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You 
want to know what's new, don't you, TRICORUS?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only 
shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the TRICORUS arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of TRICORUS.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in 
your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Shalaitha -- "Don't parry with your head.  Ever." -- Up From The Sea

Barochdal -- Maybe you should try fighting Sea dogs again.  That is 2 wins in as many
turns. Always a good cardio workout and the skills are not bad. -- Of Sea and Wind

Saarveghal -- Don't look now...  You are on fire.  Smells like chicken. -- Everyone
Burns

Saarveghal -- Then you sit there and take it. -- Nyarlathotep

Teresai -- "Ah... how much farther up do you intend to go?"  Hmmmm....  This feels
about right. -- Up From the Sea

Up from the Sea -- Damn, in this weather?  I didn't know "tough" included, "can be
chilled to the bone and ignore it."  But then, maybe that's where "cold as a fish"
came from, eh? -- Shalaitha

Cargo -- Ouch. -- Teresai
P.S.  What else is there to say?  Um, okay, thanks for the skills, too.

Fratsfa Slaves bore me.  I suspect that Fratsfa non-Slaves would probably bore me,
too.  The whole blond good-guy thing, you know?  Not that I'm a bad guy, at least I
don't think so, but I don't make a parade of it they way they seem to. -- Mahaghal

Of Sea and Wind -- You must feel right at home with the Sea Dogs. -- Barochdal

Everyone Burns -- As if.  Also, we should be so lucky.  Well, okay, maybe "burns" is
a little extreme, but I could stand "is comfortably warm." -- Saarveghal
P.S.  And you can burn the insurance agents any time.

Our congratulations to Up from the Sea.  Grab a towel and dry off. -- Jorja and the
Dark Horsemen
