                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Oh, heck, I might as well go out and paint a target on my armor, huh?  Good try,
Quizie, but experience DOES matter.

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in TRICORUS!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for DR. ORPHEUS?  
VENTURE BROS.'s proud of him after beating SALMGEDAN and getting 18 points.  Talk 
about yer big time losers!  SALMGEDAN got smashed by DR. ORPHEUS, and lost 11 points! 
This Duelmaster is like something else!  WINDSONG stopped QUIZBOY dead in his tracks! 
Who was the wiseguy that said TRICORUS' Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The 
Silver Chalice?  Don't look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  DARK HORSEMEN was the most avoided 
team.  Is a 924-988-28 record really that scary?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are 
VENTURE BROS.?  DARK HORSEMEN, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them 
to accept an invitation!  Like, is SKALVORD popular, or what?  He was challenged the 
most in all of TRICORUS!  He's got a 8-10-0, is that good?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you? 
Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  TRICORUS is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Major Tom -- A worthy effort, but that's the way it goes.  I wish you better luck
against less experienced fighters. -- Galdor O'Hare

supposed to work that way? -- Salmgedan

myself against one of the major predators.... -- Skalvord
