                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ah, Phaedra.  Good to see your team back, we were running a little short on
enticing females.  If you're prepared to be enticing, of course.  I'm guessing tht Of
Sea and Wind went inactive in preparation for the tourney, thus leaving the title for
us to fight over.  Which is fine, I don't care how I get it, really.

                                     Saarveghal

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for TRICORUS.  MVP award for MOUNTAIN OF 
STEEL?  RAISING R'LYEH's proud of him after beating JUBHAL and getting 20 points.  
Talk about yer major upsets!  JUBHAL's match with MOUNTAIN OF STEEL cost him a loss 
of 15 points!  OF SEA AND WIND thinks his 13-3-1 and studly character is good enough 
to face up to the Duelmaster.  Any bets?  Boo, hoo!  OF SEA AND WIND slew (slaught?  
slet?) SAARVEGHAL!  Actually I never liked him much.  He just wanted to fight all the 
time.  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  The warriors of DARK HORSEMEN must be getting lonely.  They were 
the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  Hhmph!  What kind 
of warriors are RAISING R'LYEH?  DARK HORSEMEN, an easy team to beat if I ever saw 
one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Can FRUITS' GRAPEFRUIT be more popular 
than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really the same?  GRAPEFRUIT must 
not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  He challenged OLYMPIA.  14 is a 
big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I thought GRAPEFRUIT showed great 
skill and promise when he overcame OLYMPIA.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big 
deal!   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  I had a fun 
time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Why -- Ask why mortal?  Be thankful you lived. -- Beacot

Burns -- Again! -- Warlock

Two more beggers dispatched.  Any other volunteers? -- Priestess and Inquisitor

Yes -- You will pay... -- Demagague

Answer of the week:
     In your dreams.

Olympia -- Welcome back and thanks for the confidence booster! -- Grapefruit

Barochdal -- Looks like I don't get to test Grapefruit against you!  Congratulations,
assuming you survived this turn.  The real question for me, where does the career
popularity award go?  (hoping) -- Assur

Mahaghal -- Survival becomes even more interesting when your warrior cannot wear
armor...  Last time I ran a warrior like Grapefruit, he got within a single win of
immortality and died.  Definitely don't want to see that repeated, and that day is
approaching. -- Assur

Ah, the Veteran Mercenary.  Good old Borrego Longshanks.  He doesn't teach worth a
damn, but a win is a win. -- Barochdal

The Venomous Concubine jumped me, but I was armored in righteousness and prepared
with an anti-venin. -- Mahaghal
P.S.  Good thing she chose to do it today, I had to rent the righteous armor--no way
to buy it, WAAAAY too expensive--and another day I might not have been prepared.

Why -- You tell me! -- Jubhal

When -- Maybe next time? -- Glador O'Hare

Grapefruit -- I didn't mean to CRUSH your hope, but I tripped and fell on it. --
Mahaghal

Answer of the week:  Take two aspirins and call me in the morning.
