                             Notes from the arena champ.

     So... I defeat the Convicted Assassin and become duelmaster, why am I not also
graduating?  Ah... not enough fights.  But couldn't my massive charisma (even the
Commission noticed) balance that?  People are tremendously impressed if I simply walk
past, much less if they see me moving in combat.  I *should* graduate... before some
unappreciative philistine kills me!

                                     Saarveghal

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, TRICORUS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see WHY win a fight and gain 15 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, GRAPEFRUIT beat WHAT 
and WHAT lost 9 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of 
life, TRICORUS may be getting bland, as SAARVEGHAL stays top dog in the city.  The 
Silver Chalice, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this 
stuff?  From TRICORUS' trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  RAISING R'LYEH was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  
Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was FRUITS.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for TRICORUS' 
morgue.  More variety.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate 
catches up with you sooner that later?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see 
the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

What -- my silly manager was thinking I do not know.  I guess he thought he'd serve
me on that little plate.  Let's try that again for real this time. -- Grapefruit

Editor -- Excellent answer! -- Assur

New Game for Tricorus.  Every turn, submit an answer to a question without giving the
question.  My entry:

     "To get to the other side."

Nyarlathotep -- Somehow I don't see Egyptians going in for chaos.  A very orderly
people, they appeared to be. -- Barochdal

Fight the Veteran Mercenary and depart.  This works.  I think I'm going to travel,
maybe a mountain resort for the summer, then... south for the winter?  I like the
idea, so we'll see. -- Teresai
P.S.  Details of my state at graduation available on request.

I'm not getting the emphasis on Kung-Fu in the arena.  Yes, if you're going to be
fighting unarmed, it would be a good thing to know, but who would fight unarmed if he
had a chance to do otherwise? -- Mahaghal

Huh, I may be stuck in this dead-alive hole, but to have to fight this... THING, this
fumbling Embezzling Golem!  It's an insult! -- Galdor O'Hare

Assur -- Yes!  We will grip the title with hands of steel!  Or something like that.
-- the Dark Horsemen
